    I think it's about time we stopped acting like hypocrites. Well, we'll no doubt still act that way, but Cuba will be one less example of it.

    I think we're preparing to see Cuba becoming something other than the pariah we've been trying to make it into.

    We trade with China, and Russia and we've managed not to become a communist nation.

    I think we'll survive if we have diplomatic relations with Cuba, again.

    We'll still be hypocrites. There will just be one less example of it. And that's good. One of the numerous reasons we are disliked is because we are hypocrites who say one thing and do another all the time. Cuba was and is a clear example of that.

    It's not an argument. It's a simple statement of fact. It's not an opinion. We're hypocrites. Sorry. Ask yourself a simple question: Why do we have a trade embargo and travel restrictions regarding Cuba?

    ok, hmm, are we a communist nation who force our people to do nothing but good for the government and only the government who is run my two brothers who dont give a damn about anyone but the wealth and power of themselves. does our government kill anyone who speaks out against them. did we almost bomb there capital with a nuclear missle? how are we hypocrites? becuase thats what we had no relations with them

    Hypocrite - a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.

    They have a boatload of doctors for one thing. That's one issue Fidel was crazy about...having enough doctors.

    Sugar cane for the other.

    Beautiful beaches, another.

    The best cigars in the world.

    Some of the best antique cars in the world.
