Oh, and what Obama has done doesn't really change anything for regular Americans, just Cuban Americans, big-wigs and, presumably the Castro brothers as well. KenC
Yup, I supported the embargo. THAT IS, until it developed that it isn't really a full embargo. It is an embargo that gives Cuban Americans all sorts of ways of getting around it. But regular, non-hyphenated Americans don't get to travel to Cuba, regular Americans are discriminated against. Basically, the whole thing is unconstitutional because it defies the Equal Protection Clause, treating Cuban Americans one way and the rest of us another way--and giving large advantages to Cuban Americans. If they really want an embargo, lets see them do a total embargo. Otherwise, as far as I'm concerned, they might as well not bother. KenC
Does all this mean that Castro can send even more insane Cubans to the U.S. and that they can all become immediate U.S. citizens? No waiting? KenC
The U.S. Cuba policy has been a stupid idea for years. The idea that a "normal" U.S. citizen can't go to Cuba, can't spend money in Cuba etc. while a "Cuban-American" could do these things and send money to Cuba to boot was and is ridiculous. And, guess what, the new policy doesn't allow regular Americans to visit Cuba either. The whole policy violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution. And the new rules don't change the policy for run-of-the-mill Americans. The policy is absurd. KenC

By your definition my dentist is a torturer. Ah, but you say, that's different, he is doing it for your own good. I say, the people who you label as torturers were doing what they did for the ultimate good of saving many innocent lives. Yes mistakes are sometimes made, and we should not put people through this without being as careful as we can, but ultimately, it is sometimes necessary. KenC

Alas, you and I may read Dr. Sowell's work, but the people who should be reading it aren't. KenC
Better also throw in Jimmy Carter just a few years before. Disaster, pause, disaster, disaster, disaster. KenC
The entire mem is to disguise what is really going on. Importing all these illegal aliens is just part of the prep work for the coming racial conversion of America. Obama wants to change the racial makeup of the U.S. as soon as possible. Whites MUST be a minority ASAP. This is regardless of the havoc the fast-tracking creates, regardless that black America will probably suffer most from this sudden and increasing influx of illegal workers, more tax-supported low-income illegals and their multiple-layer families that can come in to join those already here. Regardless of the economic chaos, the increase in the national debt, the destruction of the American culture. He is bent on this agenda. He was not raised in America. He was raised by elitist communists. He was supported and nurtured by revolutionaries that hated the U.S. He was "educated" at Harvard, although his real education came from outright communists, thanks to his progressive mother and her true-believer friends. And the real problem with Obama is that he cannot see the long view. He cannot see the disaster he is creating or the disaster that this country will turn into if we follow the path he is trying to create. He is a narrow-minded, short-sighted communist. None of them understand that the economic and social utopia they are trying to create is impossible to sustain, can't work, won't work. The Soviets found this out. He has probably come up with a million reasons to refute the obvious. KenC

Obama Bails Out Boehner On Spending Bill

Defund the illegal immigration scam. Congress can prohibit all spending for Obama's illegal amnesty, including forbidding him to spend money that comes into the immigration system from LEGAL immigrants. Come on Republicans, you are screwing your base. KenC
