Happened, I imagine, right after taxes were invented. Now Kings, Shahs, Lords, etc had to keep track of their "crops" and "investments" IE the people.

IMO Cuba easing restrictions is a way of seeking an inflow of outside money. And possibly also part of a deal with the US government as the Castro era ends.

Oh I will not argue that, I just find it funny that people are going to go around thinking of how free they are now that they exchanged one set of documents for another.

Now, I will coincide that I have no idea how hard it was to get a set of exit permits, but in the end it boils down to needing papers to travel.


Well, judging by the people swimming in the water, I'd wager not very easy.

My stepfather's son recently came to the US after my stepfather shelled out thousands to pay off commie government workers to place a rubber stamp on his sons paperwork. It took him 17 years to get his son here.



Personally, I hope the Castro's disappear. They are the reason, that Country is what it is today.

You can paint Communism on the Pig, but in Reality that family is a bunch of Dictators. Hopefully this will bring the eventual fall of these dictators.

You wonder who ever came up with the silly idea that you have to ask your Government for permission to physically move from A to B.


its usually the government of country B...

Its OK to ask a foreign Government to enter their country. It seems kind of unnatural to have to ask ones own Government to leave. The Government should not be a parent substitute.

They've been leaving en masse for decades. My parents were part of a mass exodus of more than 10,000 in 1979. To this day Cubans still come ashore. It isnt propaganda its reality.


Are you talking about the Mariel boatlift? If so, that was mostly Cuban criminals and mental patients sent to the US by Castro. Basically, that was Castro taking a dump on the USA and getting away with it. Call it like it is.

No I'm not. My parents took refuge in the embassy of Peru. Frim there they were granted asylum and taken to Costa Rica where I was born. We were later granted asylum by the US and brought here in 1989.

Just out of curiosity, do you have a rhyme or reason for where you put punctuation when you type?

Even though its a small step, It has to say something. All these years, of sanctions, and keeping that Country closed off to the rest of the World. Remember.
Really? Refresh my memory, please...who was it closed-off to? I'll be going for my fourth visit come winter.


Will we see Mob Casinos soon on Cuban soil ?
Again? Apparently they built the road from Havana to Varadero.

How come China gets a free pass...but Cuba is such a threat to the US, it must be embargoed? Hypocrisy of the highest order!

I think there will, short run.

There are lots of folks, in the States, that want to be reunited with their families in Cuba.The bigger question is this. If there is a run, on mass exodus, will Cuba stop it?


Even bigger question: if they don't leave en masse, what does that do for our propaganda?
Even bigger, bigger question: Will they all be welcomed to the US or be regarded as illegal aliens?

Its not right that China is treated much more nicely than Cuba. I guess its economy related.
