  1. While I am relatively new to smoking(2012-ish), I have always favored PCs and lanceros over any other vitola. To me, if a brand can master these vitolas, they really deserve credit...partagas mille fleur, monte 4, and Rafael Gonzalez PC are all awesome cigars and def my go to smokes...
  2. You put it best...and I mean this with 100% respect...it IS in fact beyond you...that's not a knock on you Ken, its just the way it is.
  3. Maybe change up some things...no more remesas from the USA for one...no more mules leaving from USA taking hundreds of pounds of goods(not for family, but to sell on black market for 200% mark up)...the people in Cuba have to change Cuba like the Movimiento San Isidro is trying to do. I know we all want the same thing, but with all due respect, some of you guys are so far removed from the situation that you don't see the things that we deal with on a daily basis.
  4. I agree with all of that...my argument is that an overwhelming majority of Cubans and Cuban Americans feel just like I do in regards to methodology. Anyone on the island that refuses to leave, is living a MUCH better life than my family and friends...
  5. Yea what do I know...I'm only a Cuban with family there, friends there, and am surrounded by Cubans and Cuban Americans literally every day....
  6. Fuzz I agree but when the embargo is fully removed, very few Cubans will benefit from it. You know who will benefit? Castro, Maduro, And Iran. Outside of the tourist areas, the Obama era policies had almost zero effect on daily life. Leave Havana and Varadero and spend time in the town's I mentioned and you'll see what I'm talking about
  7. Cuba's government, not the USA, is responsible for the embargo. Even now the USA sends goods to Cuba, only to have those goods misused by the government so that they can keep the same narrative going. I have family on the island from Aguacate, Guida de Melena, San Antonio de los Banos, and Havana...they are all struggling, the know the truth about the embargo, they all support it because they HATE the Castro's, they HATE Che, they HATE Diaz-Canel, and they LOVE the USA....all of them are dying to get off of that island like my grandparents/parents did...
  8. My entire family lives in Cuba, and I speak to them daily. No one is comfortable unless you are a gov official or a "comite del barrio." Food is scarce, they don't have tooth paste or soap, and when we send this stuff to them through Panama, it's taking over three months to arrive... After having been "inspected" of course. They are just afraid to take to the streets...Cuban people are friendly and very family oriented. They'd rather run to safety with their families in the USA than fight for a country that treated them like crap. You guys can talk all the academic talk you want, but if you want to know the truth about Cuba just ask me. I live ithe struggle of how to feed my family over there every day...
  9. With all respect...the only documentaries about Cuba that could tell the entire story, wouldn't be allowed to be made in Cuba... The only documentary that I would recommend that is 100% true is called "Plantados"...my grandfather was there live and in person to witness all that is said in this doc...
  10. Haha I love reading these articles ..thanks Pres! Do you buy them in CUP? CUC? Or the once "imperialist" dollar that is now a part of the revolution? And who do you pay...? The family living there now or the family who originally built/bought the house pre 1959?
  11. Haha man I read this and can't help but to think "my family must live in some other country called Cuba..." Seaside drives? Drinks and restaurants? They live better than most over there by far, and 90% of their time is spent in line fighting for chicken and toilet paper...
  12. Teofilo turned down millions and ended up riding a bike to get where he had to go...never could enjoy the fruits of his labor like he should have
  13. I go once a year to visit family. I buy peso cigars when I’m there...I spend a week or two with my family in San Antonio de los Banos and it’s sad how the situation is...if you want to see a real show, go on July 4th which is Independence Day here in the USA...there are more American flags flying than you can count...ALL the real people of Cuba(not people employed by the government) talk about is getting to the USA or the USA taking control. The government hates the USA but the people don’t buy it...
