Red Zone Cuba

Normalization of ties of relations with Cuba, let’s not pretend what this is all about. These big corporations are salivating at the prospect of setting up shop down there and sending away more of our jobs. I don’t really care about the embargo either way. I don’t see any pressing need for it to be lifted. It reminds me of how in 1993 Al Gore said NAFTA would improve Mexico so much that it would solve the illegal immigration problem.

It might benefit Cuba economically, but culturally they will take a hit too once we start bombarding the place with ghetto American pop culture and opening up fast food restaurants.
