Quote of the Day - being nice to liberals

A QOTD while I continue to recover from jet lag and the time changes from my trip to Hong Kong - and prepare for filling in on WSPD this week:

"Bill [Clinton] hates them [refugees] and fears them, especially the Cubans. Bill knows the Cubans are crazy. Only crazy people would flee from a country with free medical care, guaranteed employment for life, and first-rate gun control. The president and his sanctimonious twit of a wife have worked for decades to build a society like this, and here people are taking their lives in their hands to get away from it. ... Let's face facts about our disgusting political opponents. We've been nice to the liberals for too long. They're thugs. The liberal dream is to control people, to oppress and exploit them for some "higher" goal. And how are the liberals ever going to be able to control people brave enough to sail to Florida in a rum carton? ... A civilized society should no more tolerate the presence of a liberal than the presence of a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Indeed, it may be argued that liberalism is worse than the KKK, insofar as Klansman only hate some people while liberals hate them all." ~ P. J. O'Rourke in 1995

Great Quote!

It brings to mind the false premise that the US embargo has harmed the Cuban economy. A straw dog.

It is not the US embargo, but the Cuban political system that is the problem. Look at it this way, the Cubans can pretty much trade with the entire world with the exception of the US. Every item they could get from the US, they can also get from the remainder of the world.

Yet, they slowly decay with people willing to lose their life just to leave.
