Unbelievable, but, really so believable!
So, here’s a Tweet from CNN …..
Here’s what they show on the link ….
Here’s what they write …..
Havana, Cuba (CNN)Cuba is not like other places, or rather, not like anywhere that exists today.
To some outsiders, it looks firmly stuck in the 1950s. Vintage cars roam the streets, the landscape is absent of strip malls and global chains, and the buildings — though crumbling — hark back to a grander time.
It is these throwbacks that lend Havana, the country’s capital, an undeniable charm. A charm that, some worry, is in peril once the U.S. embargo lifts.
“We’re still in 1959, that’s the beauty of the city, and eventually all of this is going to change,” says Hugo Cancio, a Cuban-American entrepreneur and president of Fuego Media Group.
1959, of course, was when Batista was removed from office and the communists started their takeover.
Ironically, the commies of Cuba came to be because of the perceived American imperialism of Cuba …. which the commies of Cuba is now inviting back.
Yes, American investors will probably ruin Cuba by giving them various infrastructures, modern communications, jobs, wealth, and horrid things of that nature. They may even, eventually, bring them modern medicine, vehicles younger than my adult children, and the internets!
Lat nailed it in one of his comments. The left view Cuba as some idiotic pristine tribe never touched by other humans or some such idiocy. But, the “hark back to a grander time” is a direct reference to the time before the lunatic communists took over.
For the record, the longer I am on this earth, the more I am convinced that one exports liberty and freedom by exporting capitalism. While many in the US and around the world look at Russia and China with weary and distrustful eyes (and they should), just consider where both of those nations were just 40 years ago. Nearly 1.5 billion people, while not free, have significantly more liberties and freedoms today. Why? Because of capitalism. People have been shown they have something to gain, they have something to lose, and they can work for the gain! The entire nation prospers when individuals prosper! No one can say Russians and Chinese were better off 40 years ago than they are today. Capitalism allowed them to progress, raise the standard of living for their inhabitants, and the populous has an eye for the future! Now, Cuba may join them. But, to improve, people must have certain latitudes …. freedom to pursue their desires. It’s part of the unstoppable force of human nature!
Of course, this isn’t Obama’s intent, but, he’s a leftard. He’s too stupid to understand what he’s doing. He thinks he’s helping fellow leftards. Did they erect statues of Castro to be knocked over in a few years?
