You have to remember if not for sanctions Cuba might have been a great country

Its easier that people think to fly to Puertorrico from Santo Domingo, hell we got a ferry that also sails from that Island and you can take your car with you, when you come back any thing you bring in the car back to PR is not even inspected.

Many Cubans do not come in boats they actually get their way into the near Islands and from there is just a hop in a fly to the PR with false paperwork.

My sister works for the healthcare system and they are told in Puertorrico to no question the identifications that people use to get healthcare even if it looks suspicious and that goes for social programs, no wonder our Island is now facing bankruptcy.

It was a time when it was considered a great country, but sadly the mafia was running the underground and the nightlife.

Genocidal sanctions are a favourite of America.

Typically they install these crippling sanctions and then have the audacity to claim countries can't feed their people or provide basic services.

Well, if you care about stuff like that, maybe lift the sanctions?

Madness.

Is an underground business in Cuba that keep flourishing even during Castro dictatorship, that is the antique car business, they have the most beautiful and well taken care antique cars in the Island, many worldwide collectors and that includes US get their hand on those cars and bring them in the US, is very simple, you can get the an agent to buy the car from any of the none sanctioned neighboring Islands, then you have the car taken to those Island, get the paper work and from the Islands to the US.

Castro was about as great a leader as Kim Un's Daddy. But according to Marxist's and Stalinist's, and Maoist's Castro was super.

Okay

Hell you got me, I am very much anti illegal immigration because I know what it does to a small Island like PR.

You know how much is cost to keep the beggars mostly crack head and drug users out of the touristic areas in the Island?

Everywhere you go people will come to you to ask for money.

Is not like in the US that they seat in a corner with a cup, or a cardboard sign, in PR they will follow you and walk to your car.

Drug in PR is a big problem because PR is considered a door to illegal trafficking with the US and on top of that the police in the Island is in bed with the dealers too.

Castro was flawed, egomaniacal, sometimes insane and ruthless but he began with good intentions and I admire his ability to stick his middle finger up at an empire and survive so long through sheer determination despite Americas best efforts to assassinate him. Great leader, no. Great human being no, but he definitely made his mark.

PR need to elect a ruthless killer and get rid of drug dealers

OP is right. The era of revolt is dead, from here on out its just an endless grind toward stagnation and mediocrity. Castro and leaders like him, however flawed and immoral, were forces of nature. They embodied the revolutionary spirit which is lost on the lobotomized mind-slaves of today. Everybody is too pussified and complacent to even ponder the idea that their minds and bodies are atrophied and sclerotic after generations of mental and physical constriction and slavery.

Think about it. Most of the population in western countries are entropic, lethargic meat-sacks devoid of nature's propensity for violence and revolutionary upheaval. Nature is revolt, nature is change and violence, and so is happiness, but everybody is enthralled by their safe routines and the comfort of the predictability and stasis of modern domesticity.

The modern Western lifestyle turns us all into domesticated livestock without our natural energy and drive to rebel. Just entropic meatsacks stuck in an unnatural form of societal stasis. Quickly heading toward the deterioration of their pitiful weak bodies having achieved nothing in their lives. Chasing pleasure and self-indulgence to "feel good", while at the same time wasting away from all the chemicals and industrial toxins.

OP it's useless trying to show the slaves their own fetters, it's offensive to them and outside the bounds of their programming.

Is interesting that he from all the deposits that the US made to pay for Wantanamo land he only cashed the first one, he never thouched any more deposits since then that's since 1959.

$4,085 a months since 1959.

If he cashed the checks paying for the rent it would be mean he accept the terms of the lease.

The type of vessel does not change the distance covered. Columbus crossed the sea. Cubans rafting from Cuba to Haiti hop from one island to another.

In comparison, the English Channel is 240 km at its widest point although the narrowest is 33km.
