  • They know the freedom...I think it's been the greed of Castro that should have been dealt with long ago.

    But, how do you help to change a country when the guy in charge hold's all the wealth and keeps the people oppressed. You let a few experience Miami in South Florida then send them home to tell the others. I agree it's been long overdue.

  • It seems that there are two ways. One is to ease them into the modern day world with their "guidance" or revolution will show up on their doorstep. Maybe they heard the drums beating?

  • Another great and historic accomplishment for President Obama. Just like healthcare and everything else, it's something he had to do on his own with no support from republicans. It's a giant step towards a capitalist economy and travel freedoms. The elimination of trade and banking restrictions will be good for both U.S. and Cuba. I did notice that the usual people that post on these blogs and bash President Obama relentlessly have been completely silent on this topic, along with your other post about the low gas prices. How strange.

  • I think the elderly people in America from Cuba need to look at Cuba in the eyes of the younger ones.Dont they want more freedom for people of Cuba.You are right Rocket Valentine,another great accomplishment for our President.He will go down in history as a great President, in spite of those wishing the opposite.Will he get credit for gas at $1.98 a gallon like he got blamed when it was $3.85 a gallon?Do those that watch Faux news still think it is bad for the economy?

  • I don't credit/blame any president for gas prices unless they overtly do something . I am nor sure that counts for any changes in recent history.

    Were their discussions about easing ties with Cuba with which the Republicans were disagreeing? This seemed to come out of the "blue", but as I said, I am in favor of it.

    It would not have mattered which president did it. He deserves compliments.

  • I haven't been in agreement with much of what Mr. Obama has done, but I do think he deserves props for his decision to begin the process of normalizing relations with Cuba. It only makes sense in light of Cuba's close proximity to our country and the economic benefits that will surely follow. One can hope that in spite of the oppressiveness of the Castro regime, Cuba's people will push for and demand more freedom.

  • Yes it's long overdue. The U.S. policy towards Cuba hurts no one except the Cuban people. It's moronic to chastise Castro while we mollycoddle the President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping and Abdullah ibn Abdilazīz King of Saudi Arabia.
