Boy, there are only a few things one can really get out of this thread.
1. Cuba may be a nice place to visit but no one wants to live there!
2. It's no wonder America is in the situation it is. Americans can't even get along with each other most of the time.
3. The Dems finally have their wish. They have taken over. (be careful what you wish for, you may actually get it) It will be interesting to see where we're at in 4 years.
Now, my only comment. Unemployment is on the rise and I'm taking a stand. I don't care if I get a cuban, malaysian or who ever calling me wanting me to buy something or give me customer service. I tell them I don't deal with service people outside the United States and I hang up. If they want to do business in the US they should at least hire a few Americans. Same goes for Cuba! My vacation dollars this year will stay in the US! (OK, delete me now for being off topic) lol.........

Cruise me!

I used to enjoy spending some of my holiday $ in the US.
Unfortunately, I don’t get that warm fuzzy US reception anymore.
The last two trips I made my entire family was "randomly selected" for the special security screening on EVERY ONE OF THE FLIGHTS we took.

I've lived in the Middle East for almost 20 years and figure that may have something to do with it.

I like to visit places that are a bit more welcoming.

The "Cubans" have expressed a real desire to have us visit.

Re: Cuba Travel Restrictions

Cuba is all over the news again. Probably time to add to this thread.

How artificial insemination conceived a new era in US-Cuba relations | World news | The Guardian

The political demography of U.S.-Cuba relations - The Washington Post


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
