Raul Castro extends olive branch to U.S.

Do you think Fidel Castro is alive?
Strange that his brother would send out feelers.

I heard that Cuba has WMD's. There sitting right on our own back door, maybe we should invade and annex Cuba, it would make a nice retreat for George and Dick to use when the weather gets bad in Washington DC.

W/ all those "conditions," I'd call it more of an olive pit rather than an olive branch...

Do you think the purple finger business is a good idea or we should just have some good fellas take over the running of the tourist trade and control the population so wages are controlled. This will insure that prices will be low for all average Americans to have the most excellent vacation which will include personal massages, putang, and much more.
What do you think?

This must be why the CUBA fund is up 15% today. I was wondering. Thanks.

I think they need to re-open all of the casinos! My uncle used to own two in Havana until Castro "nationalized" them, and confiscated all their property. Fidel's entourage used two of the big black MBs the casinos use to use for their guests.

No Cuban blood in my line that I know of. My uncle lived in South Dakota, but owned and ran the casinos from there. I believe he was a close personal friend of the president, Batista. He spent a lot of time in Havana, but I'm not aware of any Cuban heritage, though I could be wrong. I was once.

I don't have Cuban blood either but some people I knew had some on their hands. Maybe just like your uncle
