I want the last thing Fidel Castro sees on this earth to be a Walmart.

I'm sure the last thing any Brits or Spaniards or Germans or Canadians want is another tropical vacation spot overrun with Americans.

From Arizona? oh, goodie
As a native Miamian (go ahead, mock) this is funny
There are enough politically connected Cubans in this area to drown out this idea if they choose

If any of you are interested, look into plans for Castro's demise - not that part about Miami having riot contingency plans but what large corporations (ie, bacardi) already have laid claims to large swaths of the island. There is anticipation of years of litigation between corporate interests and exiles' claims to the same property - it will be interesting.

FWIW - my family used to go to cuba for dinner and a show way back when - but i doubt what we need is a new corporate run tourist site in a disaster prone area.

From the Department of Unintended Consequences at Senor Frog's:

- Cuba opens up to US tourists.

- Massive layoffs in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc

- Lots of former bartenders & taxi drivers in the US Doing Jobs Americans Won't Do.

I always wondered, what did the dog possess that I should be aware of? It's phrased like a question on Match Game - "Be aware of dog's blank?"

Flint Ironstag: Always wondered why the US banned all travel and trade with Cuba while buying billions of dollars of Chinese goods. They're both communist.

Special interest groups sponsored by Las Vegas casinos. Blatantly obvious: gamble in a tropical paradise or the shiat-hole that Vegas has become.You open up Cuba and Vegas will go broke from loss of revenue as east coast gamblers and travelers will seek warmer climes.

Actually, it's probably a good idea. Remove the travel restrictions and Americans (including spring breakers) go in droves. Their money gives individual Cubans some measure of independence and choice that they've never had. Plus, they see the freedoms Americans have first hand and hear stories directly instead of filtered through State approved sources. Next thing you know, they're having a "Cuban Spring" demanding freedom for themselves...

Wow. A Republican (my freshman Senator) wants to open up Cuba while a Dem does not. That's an interesting thing.

Oh and

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., helped forge the compromise that last week left the Senate's filibuster largely intact. Former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., also contributed to the negotiations. Although the filibuster is much-maligned by some, eliminating its 60-vote requirement "would have fundamentally changed the United States Senate forever," McCain told The Republic.

I'm sorry guys. I've voted against these idiots as often as I can.
