Ya know the original wave of Cuban "refugees" were those who were profiting off a corrupt regime and Mafia connections at the expense of their fellow Cubans. Just like the so-called freedom fighters, the contra were the very bastards the Sandinistas were a reaction to.

When such people start mouthing platitudes of peace and freedom and liberty and the like... it just makes me want to throw up. That is why some of those people publicly celebrating their "freedom" because of Castro's death is so tacky.

Unfortunately the reaction to one puckered rectum is often just a different one. These people will return and the ones who stayed will get screwed all over again.

OMG there is an apologist for EVERYTHING.
I just don't get it sometimes.


The death of Castro will be better than good, it will be, a great moment in Cuban history. Although there will be a continuation of power.
One can only hope that there is a seed of freedom in the mind of a few of the Cuban islanders.

TO-nite we're gonna party like it's nineteen fifty nine.

That the system already in Cuba will stay, since Castro appointed a "Council" who will basically try and ask themselve "What would Castro Do?"

And there is a chance, that no one will have the correct answer.


I was also wondering, where do Cubans go on vacation?
Other countries still allow themselves to do business there.
But where do the Cubans go, when they need some rest and relaxation?

And how do you know this? Do you think the soviet people were happy to see Stalin succeed Lenin? Remember, better a devil you know than one you don't.

With Castro out of the way it will all break down and quickly.

Mark my words, Cuba will be Socialis *cough* I mean Communist no more in less than 5 years.

Man I love Cuban food!

I am not apologizing for Castro... just pointing out some facts. Castro, like the Sandinistas were a response to corrupt regimes in the first place and at the very least the first wave of refugees were connected to that regime as were the so called freedom fighters and contras. And in the second place, in my opinion, to celebrate someones death as is proposed, is very tacky regardless of who the person is... but like I said earlier what to you expect of a group who made a cult out of Elian Gonzales?

Oh, you are certainly right about that. A job opening of this magnitude can attract some slimy candidates.
But one day of happiness might be a good thing!

Spoke with one if my friends over lunch this week about the celebration. He is aiding in some of the planning for what Miami will do upon the death of Castro. Though the city would rather not get involved financially in any way, it will be impossible not too. The city has an obligation to the safety of all of its citizens. This does not mean the celebrations will end up in riots, but the streets will be blocked in certain areas with partiers and instant parades of vehicles and people waving Cuban and American flags. There may be energencies where rescue vehicles need to get in and out. There need to be police around for any number of situations that may occur. There has to be management of this in some way. Do they offer up Calle Ocho the same way they do for Cinco de Mayo in Miami? Do they let the parties happen wherever they may? There are lots of questions that the city is currently dealing with and these are the concerns. Spending tax money is inevitable, its just a matter of how it is spent. I am in favor of extra police for traffic monitoring and violence provention. I'm not in favor of paying for the bands, food, etc of the party.
