Obama and Cuba

When this country makes overtures of friendship to another country, we often enjoy a reciprocal gesture of democracy in return. Not so in the case of Cuba. But that is not required by the United States any longer when we are no longer the United States of America, but the United Socialist States of America. We gave all the concessions and required nothing in return. Our government will, of course, learn more about how to steal from the people and keep them living in poverty.
One thing good has come of this Conference, at least for the Cubans. For the first time since 1959 when Fidel Castro came to power, the Cubans are celebrating Christmas. All over Cuba, in the stores, restaurants, hotels, and in their homes, they have put up Christmas trees and Christmas decorations because for the first time they have Christmas spirit and hope for a better life.
But Obama has incited hysteria among the Cuban, as he did with the Mexicans, as they believe they are now free to come to America. This latest move on Cuba nearly killed 32 Cubans and some are still missing. They had boarded a boat and Cuba’s Coast Guard kept ramming the boat until it sunk. A survivor told a reporter that “We were screaming and crying for help as the boat was sinking. But they ignored us. Instead, they continued charging against our boat. Some people dove in the water and others stayed aboard as the boat sank…They knew there were children aboard, but continued to charge against us. They didn’t care.” She lost her husband.
According to Breitbart News: After a televised speech last week in which Cuban dictator Raúl Castro declared President Obama’s unilateral actions towards Cuba a victory for “a more prosperous and sustainable socialism,” Castro visited the Cuban National Assembly to declare that, against the United States, “now we’ve really won the war.” […] “We hope that Obama will use with determination executive prerogatives to substantially modify the blockade in those aspects that do not require Congressional approval,” demanded Castro. He added that he does not expect any changes in the Cuban regime: “just as we have never proposed to the United States a change in their political system, so too do we demand respect for ours.”
