That has got to be one of the most comunist articles I have seen. Of course the brother wants to get along now that he's old and living no different than any other non-comunist on the island. He's probably not getting any more special treatment. I have an uncle that is 60 who wants to move over here too. He was given the chance to come in his 20's but chose to live it up over there, first as a commie, then off the back of his disident family. Now he wants to live over here getting government help as an old man who's never worked a day in his life over here? Fuck him, he can stay over there!

WAS A DICTATORSHIP! Now it's heading towards a,'Socialist/Democratic', form of government,(albeit very slowly, but indeed, very surely).
In 5 years or so, it will probably get the UN Award for,'Being the Worlds Best Social/Democratic Nation', the same as Chavez received for his work in Venezuela, before the Enemies of Venezuela dispatched him.

54 years ago the Cuban criminal revolution came to power and promised Democracy, constitutional rights, honesty, a better standard of living, better freedoms, than those that existed then when Cuba was the most advanced and better developed country in the Western Hemisphere. The Castro bros assassinated, robes, confiscares, imprisons hundres of thousands of its population,
millions of Cubans flee the Island hoping for Liberty from a totally fail corrupt polítical system, that now admits they have fail in their revolution, but id you give them more time they will make a better Life for its citizens? It Will never happen and all these Castro messangers are only traying to extend the Life of a totalitarian system that should be removed radically to give freedom to its people.

"Yet when she visited Washington, Sanchez received a warm welcome from Cuban-American politicians like Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who strongly supports the embargo. There were less than a dozen demonstrators outside her event at Miami's Freedom Tower on Monday, and even they hesitated to call themselves protesters."

Chica cuando me llamas una ratica me insultas , soy una RATA.

Me tio fue a verla y estaba lleno.

La lastima es que despues de los castros la mierda politica de hialeah y dade van a ser los nuevos duenos de cuba.

Es posible que cuba como PR va a ser parte de los estados unidos y espero que se llene de hispanos de todas las americas y como me gusta esa idea.

Tu amigo,
