Thanks, Obama.

When you consider the relations we have with China and Vietnam whi have killed American soldiers, being so hard on Cuba for so many decades is dumb as hell.

Did they ever stop to consider that by normalizing relations things might have changed for the better long ago?

Sorry, I forgot, we have to cater to a small group of Florida voters.

Frankly, the rightwing Cuban ex-pats should be ignored on Cuba policy, as they are very stupid.

Biden can do things that are rational, and beneficial to Cubans and Cuba, but it will not matter. What matters to Cuban-Americans is polemics. They want pandering, not practicalities. Same s it ever was.

the former President repeatedly claimed Biden would turn the US into a "socialist country" if he won, a message that resonated with Cuban Americans.

Because they're idiots

Obviously, and he's too hard on democratic Federations like Russia.

Sad.

But we're still doing that whole embargo thing, huh? Sure, yeah. That makes sense.

Must be nice for Cuban expatriates - being able to visit their relatives back home every 4-8 years.

You can go by way of Costa Rica.  They'll even slip a piece of paper in your passport for the cuban stamp.

Or so I've heard

The US would have far better relations with Latin America now had it not been for those Batista Batsh*ts in Miami.

I often discuss this when I think about places my father has been that I can (or in this case cannot) visit.

He grew up in Miami in the late 40s and 50s. Cuba was basically the senior trip.

He's was a Vietnam veteran, so yeah there's that whole thing. But I honestly cannot recall him ever really saying anything bad about Vietnam itself.

Back in the 90's I met a guy from SC who came north of the border on a quick cash money contract. I suggested he ship himself some Cuban cigars because they're a lot easier to find in Montreal. I hear later that he spent the wad he made on strip clubs and coke whores.

dont forget the people who profit from really convoluted laws regarding cargo shipping via the Gulf of Mexico.  Cant open up Cuba and run the risk that a whole new competitor suddenly shows up.

Just prior to covid, he spent like 3 straight months going back and forth but eventually he committed to banning flavored vape cartridges.

That's about it though. Everything else was about taking our money and putting it in his pocket.

It isn't just Florida voters. There was another major factor:

Vietnam killed poorer Americans while enabling more money to be pushed into the military-insustrial complex controlled by the rich.

Castro screwed rich America by seizing the assets the got out of the corrupt dictatorships that proceeded him. And many of their families still demand compensation for it.

The Cubano sandwich is one of the best sandwiches ever in my opinion.

The only people hurt by the continued embargo are Americans who want to visit Cuba and the family members of Cubans with relatives in the US.  The Cuban government is not hurt by them since the entire rest of the world can, and does, visit there.  Cuba has reformed a lot  of their economy to move towards a more democratic socialist model instead of the authoritarian command economy of the past.  By keeping the embargo, it just incentivizes them to strengthen ties with Russia, China, Venezuela, and other leftist or authoritarian powers instead of us.

It's a step in the right direction. But there's still a long way to go. End the embargo. Now. Lock, stock and barrel.

I went 25 years ago. Flew into Montego Bay, Jamaica, bought a Cuban visa at the airport (loose piece of paper you put in your passport) and flew right back out on Cuban Air into Havana. Well worth it and what a beautiful place. Quite an adventure. Once back in Jamaica, we tossed our Cuban visas and arrived back in the US, none worse for the wear.

I appreciated making National Parks free for veterans, although I'm sure the goal is to ensure that National Parks make less money and the GOP has more of an excuse to sell them off in the near future.
