Dealing With The Devil Part IV
House Speaker John Richardson touting how: "he was part of the discussion with President Fidel Castro and that meeting was crucial to winning what the administration says is a $20 million export deal for Maine."
He goes on: "You've got to understand, Fidel Castro micromanages that economy and a failure to meet with him is a failure to gain a greater amount of export (dollars)," Richardson said. "He's sharp as a tack. He has a full grasp of what's going on in the agriculture field, and he definitely calls the shots."
-Micromanages? Of course you dumbshit, he micromanages everything in Cuba. Sharp as a tack or do you mean that he whacks off any type of protest or dissent? He sure calls the shots come mierda, just look at all those who have been executed.(I am sure this was never mentioned in your meeting with the micromanager)
Now this gets better:
During the governor's short stay, the delegation got a "surprise" visit from Castro, Richardson said. News of that meeting sparked strong criticism from Republican legislative leaders, who said the meeting "lends legitimacy to a brutal communist ruler with an appalling record of human rights violations."Richardson said the talks were about agricultural products and people."We were talking about our likes and similarities," he said. "We're a poor, very proud but poor state; we hold our children in high esteem; education is a big issue — in Cuba and in Maine. There are a lot of similarities."Castro specifically wanted to know about Maine dairy cattle, Richardson said, because Maine farmers export dairy cattle to Cuba. There also were discussions about apples, potatoes, lumber and Maine seafood."It was all on the table," Richardson said.
- " Surprise" visit, no everything is planned, calculated, and spied on with vigorous detail. I guess you'd say any bullshit for a $20 million dollar deal.
