My mom go to market and we keep far her We get it. We see you. You want to control everything and everybody, so you try to control us at home using the same tactics you pretend to condemn in Cuba so you can control and exploit it. We’re going to boil over soon. When socialists fight each other they also use other people’s money as weapons.
Why there carrying the American flag. O that right your for social communist for us Don't need to crack down on protesters. Need to crack down on corrupt government. It's like saying we went to Germany to crack down on burn victimization. Or that Hitler was just cracking down on dissenters. Stop writing a narritive and just write the truth.
End the sanctions, they hurt the people of Cuba, not the government Yeh! Poor public health Ridiculous military spending Bad education Only a small % have most of the money Government crackdowns on protests Many people are 2nd class citizens in their own country!..... Also I hear Cuba is having some difficulties
tryin pretty hard to put TheOnion out of business Puppet for communism cracking down on communism, right. Sanctions never work. If they did the regime in Cuba would have ended 50 years ago. And North Korea would be done too. Can we drop the cigar sanction first? Then drop the hammer
