  1. Man I love skinnies and they seem to be going away little by little...really stinks
  2. https://www.ruetir.com/2021/03/02/fidel-castros-grandson-shows-off-mercedes-benz-on-video-they-broadcast-it-in-networks/ In this link, Fidel's grandson Sandro is seen in his mercedes benz speeding and bragging...he called it one of his little toys... So is there money in Cuba or is there not? How does he have money to buy a new MB? Weird I know...
  3. https://www.local10.com/news/local/2021/02/24/miami-leaders-commemorate-25th-anniversary-of-brothers-to-the-rescue-massacre/ Thought I'd post this to remember the fallen. Eager to hear the two sides of this story... enjoy
  4. I am Cuban and have many family members in the cigar industry on the island. I enjoy reading the different posts on this site, including yours. I love listening to peoples viewpoints. I don't think I've attacked you personally, just corrected you. Very different things I feel. My only political agenda is to see the dictatorship suffer. I wouldn't get my jimmies russled if I were you, just use this as a lesson learned. Even the smartest of men can learn something new every day...
  5. I can see how one could believe that...and yes they entered into the "special period" after the SU collapsed...
  6. Cuba had a roughly 4 billion dollar per year cash cow in the Soviet Union throughout the 70s and 80s and nothing changed. People were still hungry, still being beaten, and still living in crappy houses. The leadership however grew wealthier and wealthier year after year... I like that some are calling this a debate or a friendly chat...it's neither. There is no debating the issue. It's pretty clear cut to people who know what they are looking at. Whatever business is done with the Cuban govt, will not be to the benefit of the everyday Cuban people (outside of the tourist areas)...it will
  7. Ken you assume to know more about World History and Cuba than most others in the site, and you very well may. The FACT is that you don't know more about Cuba and THE USA than I do. Every time I post on this site it on a Cuban political thread, and there is a reason for that. My family has fought the regime for 60+ years both here and there, and I have to do my part to continue their legacy. I buy hondas and love them to death, like you buy Cuban cigars and love them. I won't pretend to know the ins and outs of the japanese political sphere, much like you shouldn't with regards to Cuba. Drink
  8. Great article! We collectively need to open our eyes and accept that what the Cuban people are going through is directly the fault of the Cuban govt. No outside countries are to blame... Side note: I have been waiting for a link to the new song that is taking the island and the world by storm (at least for Cubans) called "Patria y Vida" by Gente de Zona and two members of "Movimiento San Isidro"...really groundbreaking stuff...
  9. So the tightening of "the embargo" on Cuba has them doing the unthinkable!?!? Are they actually fending for themselves?!?! Coming up(by themselves) with a solution to their own problems? Wait wait wait....and that groundbreaking solution is capitalism?!?! This is too much to take in...
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
  14. 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....
