  1. The government just made journalism illegal and has thousands imprisoned for no reason at all. Javi is right about living in it. It’s a different animal when you live there. Biden doing this is like giving a violent guy on death row antibiotics to make sure he is healthy while awaiting his demise. nothing will change for the people outside of the tourist areas. Same as last time everyone was duped by the Cuban government.
  2. https://www.cubanet.org/noticias/el-nuevo-codigo-penal-cubano-criminaliza-las-libertades-de-prensa-y-expresion-denuncio-la-sip/?fbclid=IwAR3ADszqN54dn_CRd-agoAIh3JCuVxHx4DWtlP9f3nNfFDXjh9cQ_DuRAV0 all of the above is what the people are concerned about, the article I posted shows what the government is worried about. All of this after Biden eased restrictions. A mouse in a cage, whether he’s well fed or not, is still a mouse in a cage.
  3. I have a cousin at the border right now. Scary stuff for sure. She has a 9 year old with her. She can’t wait to see the injustices of America in action…
  4. Ken you love to prove me wrong…I said that as an American “ I think” as in, its my opinion. Didn’t say wether it was right or wrong, just an opinion. Your disdain for me and/or America didn’t allow you to read and think that sentence through fully…relax man…article from an unknown site. Tells me nothing except a lot about the person who searched for it. You are for mandating vaccines, and I am against. Doesn’t make Me anti vaccine, just anti mandate. Not a shocker that we are on opposite sides of this “non political” topic. You are a proponent of big government, and I am not. What I can’t believe is that your post calling people disgraceful and saying that people who oppose your viewpoint live in cuckoo land was allowed to be posted. I’m still being handled with kid gloves because I spoke the truth on the Cuba embargo situation.
  5. We aren’t talking draft or war or anything other than mandated vaccines. I think as an American, I have the right to choose what I put in my body and if I want to assume the risk of not getting a vaccine that is proven to work, then I should be allowed to assume that risk. I’d only be killing other people who knowingly assumed the same risk.
  6. I think the point that most people miss is that if the un-vaccinated are freely choosing to be unvaccinated and they are the ones dying, then they made their beds. If you are vaccinated, congrats. You are 99.99% covered as far as covid goes. Why are we so worried about a group of people who are willingly not getting the vaccine, knowing full well the risks they are taking? If you want the vaccine get it, that’s your choice and your right. You’ll be safe from all the crazies who don’t want to take it. If you don’t want the vaccine, and are willing to take the risks then don’t get it. Again, no entity should MAKE people do something with their bodies that they aren’t comfortable doing
  7. I don’t like mandates, I don’t like the government in my life, and I don’t like the fact that the talking points change repeatedly. I won’t mandate any of my employees get it, but if they want it they are free to get it. I had covid and it didn’t really do anything to me. I’ll probably get the vaccine in a couple weeks, if anything just to be able to go places freely and not worry about being turned away. If I could get a card that says “antibodies” instead, I’d get that haha. This is a great topic that really shows how the members on this site lean politically. Very telling who we choose to quote and who we choose to leave out of the convo.
  8. I don’t know why the US is always brought up. Cuba gets plenty from the USA and other countries as well. The people are starving because of the regime. El Cangrejo(Rauls grandson) was in a lavish wedding this week with great food, great drinks, great cigars, and designer clothes. All while the people starved. I guess you can do that when you reign over a country with 11 million slaves. If the USA lifts the embargo temporarily, do you really think that will help the people in need? It will def help the people who don’t need the help…
  9. Watching this I have to fight tears back…beautiful song but such a terrible shame what happened to our country…
  10. We are going to have a blast! Wahoo and Marlin fishing on me in my boat. Can’t wait
  11. The people that I have spoken to are thinking that these deaths are fake. They seem to believe that these generals are leaving the island with false identification to avoid sanctions…. Very knowledgeable people saying these things
  12. Your welcome Ken. I’m here for you any time you want to learn more about Cuba and Cubans in general. Those guys in the island aren’t telling y’all the whole story. If they did, they’d be in jail…
  13. Welcome to the party Ken. Just in time for another lesson! It would be incorrect to assume that my community is biased. Many of the Cuban Americans that I live around are called Tampeños and are very liberal and anti anything rebublican and/or conservative. These people’s families came in the 30s and 40s and generally have quite a disdain for Post- Castro Cubans. I hear both sides regularly at the coffee shops while eating my media-noche and drinking my colada…Interestingly enough, most of these Tampeños came to Tampa from Cuba to roll cigars. I think it is silly to lift the embargo. Sure more people will have the luxuries of modern society, but they would still not be free. These protestors aren’t in the streets yelling “comida” or “medicina”….they are yelling “libertad.” when my grandfather was imprisoned in Cuba, he had a good life. Had a car, a house, and even a TV. He could have lived without those things he used to say. What he couldn’t live without was freedom…that’s what this is about.
  14. “punitive measures prohibiting foreign companies with US interests from dealing directly with Cuba.” This sounds like the companies have a choice on what they want to do. Doesn’t sound like a forced embargo. I am telling you that the embargo is rubbish. I am telling you that it’s an internal blockade. The USA is not the big bad wolf. Where did all of the cooking oil come from that was given out yesterday in Havana? They were in a desperate shortage of cooking oil just 5 days ago. Yesterday there were pallets of it. I am open to discussion and learning new things, but from people who are closer to the situation than I am. I live in FL, I’m in a heavily populated almost purely Cuban community, and have family inside the island.
  15. Mexico and the US have a tense relationship at best. I can’t stand the blockade nonsense though because it seems to be an agenda that is constantly getting pushed by certain people on this site. It’s rubbish. This Mexican shipment of goods will be given to a select type of person in Cuba, and others will still be left hungry.
  16. My family is not on the internet witch it weird, and I just heard from a friend that people took to the streets in San Antonio de los Banos again, and in El Cerro in Havana.
  17. There is still massive unrest on the island. People fighting policemen, mothers protesting outside of stations, and young people still peacefully protesting.
  18. That post Niño reads very familiar to what I posted a couple of days ago and got censored. Either way, I agree with the article. In other news, internet is cut again in certain places in Havana and in San Antonio de los Banos…
  19. Exactly…my grandfather passed away at 89 years old in 2018. I would go by his house every single day and once a week he was listening to Rolando Laserie and Orlando Contreras, crying his eyes out about what was taken from him. He was friends with Pedro Luis Boitel, and part of him always felt guilty about escaping the island and not dying trying to fight. He loved the USA more than anything because of what it gave him…FREEDOM, but when he passed and we cleared out his house, it was a shrine to Cuba. He is happy right now up in heaven. Maybe my grandfather and yours are drinking some guayabita and enjoying a smoke, watching what’s to come…we can dream right?
  20. Now in FL people are getting ready to go with unlimited food restrictions to take food to families. Weird because I thought the embargo wouldn’t allow this? Or was it the internal blockade? To the people I have offended with my fiery comments, I am truly sorry. This is a very personal topic for me, as my grandfather was imprisoned for 6 years for speaking his mind. Not imprisoned by the USA, but by Cuba. I also need to be more sensitive to the plight of others who have chosen to do business with this dictatorship. I have read the Bible verse that says “forgive them Lord, they know not what they do.” all I want is true freedom for my people. I want to be able to buy Cuban cigars here in FL. I want my family to be able to come visit me here in Tampa. I want to be able to take my boat to Hemingway and spend a month there in the summer with no fear. More than anything though, I want my grandfathers actions all those years ago to be validated.
  21. Boats throughout South Florida are staging right now and supposedly leaving tonight for international waters off of Cuba. They are loaded with water, food, medicine, and who knows what else…
  22. Riots have intensified today for sure. Video coming out now of buildings being trashed, more cars being flipped, and people getting shot at. Word from friends in Holguin and SAB that there are significant officers and military members that are split on who’s side to take. I agree that this has nothing to do with the USA. This has everything to do with the tyrannical regime that has been in power since 1959. EDIT: Word is that Venezuelan special forces are coming tonight to reinforce the revolutions violence against an unarmed public.
