If you didn't try to offend Cuba so much, by offering your, "Wet Foot, Dry Foot', immigration policy, you wouldn't have people pretending to be Cubans', sneaking into your country to fast track their US Citizenship. You people are really something else!
The Miami Triad, Rubio, Ros-Lehtinen and Diaz-Balart, have hoodwinked the US Government with their Anti-Cuban-Rhetoric, just to make sure they maintain job security, since most of their constituents are Miami-Cubans, and the aggressive stance against Cuba, enhances their chances for re-election. Can you people not see or understand this ploy?
WHY ELSE WOULD THEY, THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO CONTINUALLY BAD MOUTH CUBA, keep on saying what they do? Unfortunately, they provide ALL this distorted information about Cuba, to both their Government, AND THE CITIZEN'S OF THE USA, and CANADA! No wonder only 54% of your citizens', when asked,'Would you like to visit Cuba', answer,'Yes of course we would, but we can't', the US Government won't let us!
United States, the land of the FREE?

The real irony is when so many separatist Miami Cubans pretend to be American.

"The late Jorge Mas Canosa, the undeniably powerful founder of the right-wing Cuban American National Foundation, was a major force in setting in motion the infiltration of these problems into the fabric of South Florida government and exile persuasion. His company, Church & Tower (which was under investigation in a $3.9 million road-paving scandal with the county water and waste department), and his political foundation successfully put pressure on virtually every level of government to obtain not only business, but to advance the separatist objective of its leader—his return to Havana, post Castro. One of Mas Canosa’s most profound statements against assimilation of the Cuban-exile culture into the American tradition of cooperative ethnic heritage was made in a 1992 interview with The Miami Herald:

“I have never assimilated. I never intend to. I am a Cuban first. I live here only as an extension of Cuba.”

What is your real name, Multi-Names? While you're at it, give me your address, so my friends and I can pay a little visit to Miami, and have a few words with you, and your Batista-loving friends. Just a friendly little chat, bud.

Does the real truth bother you, Multi-Names? Can't you handle it? Can any reasonable-thinking person in the United States of America, handle this Miami-Triad B.S.?
Speak up America!
THESE THREE MIAMI-CUBANS, ARE CONTROLLING WHETHER YOU CAN, OR CAN NOT, TRAVEL FREELY TO CUBA FOR A VACATION, OR A VISIT!

What about Obama's Prison? The one that won't let Americans visit or vacation in Cuba, under threat of a HUGE fine!
