Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro demanded on Thursday that President Barack Obama return the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo to Cuba without conditions, and he accused the new U.S. leader of supporting "Israeli genocide" against Palestinians.

Castro, who had recently praised Obama as "honest" and "noble", lashed out at his administration for stating that Washington will not return Guantanamo if it has any military use for the United States and without concessions in return.

Wow. this is a great site! I'm glad that I'm not alone in feeling the way I feel about this swamp / cesspool!

Firstly, while I am aware that many of the Cubans here are assholes, so are the white people, black people and everyone else. Miami seems to be a magnet for assholes in general. I don't know who started that trend, i.e. whether this place was fucked up long before the Cubans started flooding in, but either way, this is a bad, bad, bad place, populated by human scum.

People in Miami have no respect, no manners and no consideration for others. They drive like maniacs, so recklessly that I'm amazed that dozens of people aren't killed on the roads each day (it must be just blind luck). There is no law enforcement and people do as they please, me first (quitate tu pa ponerme yo...), fuck everyone else.

Miami is basically a huge small town. What I mean by that is that it has a small town feel, in the sense that it's very clique oriented and very polarized, since there are few "scenes" and that Miami people are just clones of one another, for the most part. If you're not in some sort of clique, you're going to be an outsider here. Just being socially outgoing and friendly won't cut it here. People here also have a tendency to take advantage, as if taking advantage of others is somehow ingrained in their culture (or lack, thereof). True friends here are hard to find, especially as people are generally so shallow, fake, superficial and pretentious.

While I try not to just blame Cubans, many of the Cubans here are the worst offenders, so let's put political correctness aside for just one minute. This city is run by Cubans, for Cubans. The new (Cuban) mayor indirectly forced out the former (Irish American) chief of police, only to replace him with a Cuban. In most places, that would be considered somewhat discriminatory and just plain wrong, but Miami is a Cuban city now, so no one bats an eyelid. I live in a pretty nice condo, but you can tell many of the Cubans that live here are trash, being loud, obnoxious and they have a tendency to think that they can do whatever they want, so do their nasty kids. They can be as loud and obnoxious as they want, because everyone else must be some sort of pussy for not standing up to them.

Anyway, the fact that people defend Miami makes me LMAO. Look at that "Rey" guy, for example. I mean, we're all just pussies for wanting some semblance of culture here in Miami, aside from the Arsht Center, which 1) caters to the Latino mix and 2) you'd expect to find in any small/medium sized town, not one of the largest cities in the United States!

In MiaME, it's not what you know, it's who you know, that's for sure. If you're not connected and if you're a non-Cuban, you're going to have a damn hard time here.

As for me, my wife and I are saving and saving to move far, far away. Trust me, when we leave, we have both sworn never to return to Miami, not even for a casual visit. If a flood or a hurricane destroyed this place, most people would not give a shit. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I'd hope that it took all those nasty, self-serving assholes down too; people who only care about cars, booze, drugs, trashy music and of course, themselves. Miami is a truly evil place.

" The new (Cuban) mayor indirectly forced out the former (Irish American)"

The Irish American chief was a DISASTER and had to go , You or I would have done the same, the abuse of power, police standards under that guy were a horror .

I have noticed that the Doral Venezuelan Mayor appointed a Jewish American police chief and not Venezuelan chief which is a credit to him.

The guy is already cleaning up the place.

The ONLY ethnic voting separatist bunch I have ever seen in my life have been those I call Miami Cubans and I say this as a Cuban American from NY.

"People in Miami have no respect, no manners and no consideration for others. They drive like maniacs, so recklessly that I'm amazed that dozens of people aren't killed on the roads each day (it must be just blind luck). There is no law enforcement and people do as they please"

WORSE keystone policia I have ever seen , terrible political standards trickle down to terrible police standards and in my opinion this describes Hialeah, Sweetwater and Dade but the people get what they deserve .

A majority with no political standards gets exactly that.

"This city is run by Cubans"

Hialeah-SweetWater and Miami-dade where countless ordinances are ignored by city officials and inspectors , countless police hang out for hours and unethical cronyism is standard.

I can't fathom lower than Cuban OWNNED Hialeah any place in USA .

"Cubans that live here are trash, being loud, obnoxious and they have a tendency to think that they can do whatever they want, so do their nasty kids. They can be as loud and obnoxious as they want, because everyone else must be some sort of pussy for not standing up to them."

Miami Cuban cops, officials, politicians will tear you a new azzhole if you did.
Miami DA Kathleen Rundle (que es Cubana)seems to work strictly for the Miami Cuban junta.

There are many good Cubans here but I know exactly what you mean .
Miami does have good points but again I am Cuban , HOWEVER at this point NON Cubans are as much to blame because ignoring local and state elections and not giving a damn what their local politicos are doing for the place or not doing such as enforcing noise ordinance (Dade-SweetWater and Hialeah notorious for this), building codes,etc ,etc

You actually begin to enjoy Miami when you don't give a damn about the people here and stop lifting a finger for the place but voting in every election is imperative.
