I sent you an email, amigo. I'm just checking to see if you got it. There has been a problem with ALL my email being delivered especially regarding sensitive subjects.

I've seen that kind of "repression" in Washington DC many times..what's the difference when it happens in Cuba?

Tomás Estrada-Palma said...

Samuel what's your point? If you are noting that the U.S. government is also repressive and denies human rights well we agree then. However if you are excusing the Cuban government's bad behavior because the U.S. does it too then we disagree.

Anytime supporters of the Cuban regime want an alibi they point out how bad the American government is. Anytime supporters of the U.S. regime want an alibi they point out how bad the Cuban government is.

Well this is one exile who knows both are filled with liars, scoundrels, thieves and murderers. So in the future if I condemn one please do not ever think that I am ok with the other.

There is a difference between the two nations however. In Cuba they use the ball and chain slavery model while in the U.S. we have the Free Range Slave model where most of the slaves here do not even realize they are slaves. That's why we produce more here than in Cuba.
