Cuba

Whatever you may think of the weakness that Obama has shown over the years at standing up to the rich and their subsidiary, the Republican party,  he finally did something really brave in starting the process of ending our malicious and cruel embargo of Cuba for having the unmitigated gall to pick a government we didn't like.  This action is decades overdue, and shows a level of courage that none of the six or so previous Presidents could muster.

We know he is now going to be attacked by right wing liars for decades to come because of this, but he did the right thing.  Thank you, Barack, and may we see a few more things like this before you leave office.

The embargo was a joke, every nation but us made all the business they could there. Even more curious, my own grain co-op along with a few others have sent deligations to Cuba for years and sold boats load of wheat. The embargo net has a lot of big holes in it. It's a hoax, some industries have ways to do business there while we claim we don't, and claim it will somehow work.

But, but, but, the embargo was just about to work!!!

Conservatives supported the embargo because they enjoy hurting people. They hurt people in order to change their minds.
