Here is an actual quote from this article, that the above poster FAILED TO READ, before posting.

Quote:-HAVANA—When President Barack Obama reinstated "people-to-people" travel to Cuba in 2011, the idea was that visiting Americans would act as cultural ambassadors for a U.S. constantly demonized in the island's official media.
Two and a half years later, a survey shared exclusively with The Associated Press suggests the trips are not only improving Cubans' views of Americans. They are also changing U.S. travelers' opinions of the Caribbean nation for the better, and dimming their view of Washington policies that have long sought to pressure Cuba's Communist leaders.

"I think U.S.-Cuban relations should be open. People should be talking to each other. People should be sharing," said Ellen Landsberger, a 62-year-old New York obstetrician who recently visited on a people-to-people tour.

"We have this tiny little island that is no threat to the U.S. that we're isolating from the world," she said. "It doesn't make sense."

• Mohamed (though that is his REAL name he will post under usurped avatars to create confusion and make himself appear to be an average mainstream "leaning to the Left" citizen.
.
•.BEWARE!!!!!! He is an ISLAMIC CYBER TERRORIST!!!!

• His AGENDA: destroy America and the Western Free world!!!!!
.
.
• Mohamed is a MUSLIM TERRORIST posing as a mainstream white man with ideology leaning towards the left.In reality, his ideology is extreme RADICAL LEFT with the intent of widening the schism in America. His goal is to contribute to destroy America from within by simply demonizing our society and our government, while praising the enemy such as the neighboring dictatorship in Cuba and their ally/colony? Venezuela.
.
.
.
• He also will be critical of dissidents and accuse them of being supporters of Batista. Most dissidents are against Batista, and the younger generation knows very little about Batista.
Batista was a corrupt and undesirable piece of filth, but despite that he contributed to building and improving Cuba, while the present dictatorship has taken one of the most prosperous and advanced nations in the world and made it one of the poorest and most backward nations. Their only achievement is assembly-line doctors that they use in the third world to gain favors and recognition, but who are so poorly trained that they cannot compete with a USA trained Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner. They are mediocre in quality, not "top notch" like in the USA.
.

• Communism produces substandard and mediocre products, not state of the art high quality.
They are capable only of mediocrity, not excellence!
.
.

• Mohamed's AGENDA: To destroy America and the rest of the Free World!
And then have the muslims take over, do away with Democracy, Socialism, Communism, Capitalism, Multiculturalism, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hinduism etc.

Print this tirade out, run it through your shredder, then apply it liberally to your garden.

You will soon have the best crop of vegetables (or whatever), that you have ever seen.
