In my grade school days in Key West Florida about half of my classmates were Cuban. They are very fine people. I think that we should allow two new baseball teams into the Major Leagues--one in Havana and another in Santiago.

It is a false hope that the Exiles in Miami will ever get back their property that was seized when the Batista Regime was ousted by Castro even if it were gained by industrious work.

I think in the long run engaging Cuba is the right thing to do for their people.

Lived in Cuba, before Fidel. First wife (still friends) was a Cuban Refugee, now an American Citizen.

The 'Miami' Cubans (I live nearby) are apparently split. The younger for it. The older against.

Regarding property. BIG LEGAL PROBLEM!!! Unless the Communist Dictator's Transfer Title to the New Owners. The people in Cuba, are now - Under International Law - in Possession of Stolen Property.

Germany solved this problem, by giving the 'Old' Legal Owners money for Their Property. Which caused an large Economic problem. The Cuban Government does not have the money.

The Cuban Government has given a type of Title Transfer to small 'Occupier's' of Property. But what about larger?

One of the big problems these days is country's or groups like the taliban think that the west does not have the guts to use a nuke and so they keep fighting thinking all the time they can win but if we show them we will be as butal and even more brutal then they will become as scared as they are trying to make us .
before anybody starts i will remind you all of a story in the bible i think it is about a group of people that took on the Romans and after a long siege the Roman started to build a ramp to get over there walls of the city that was on top of a platoe . When the people saw there was no way out and they would all die as soon as the Romans had finsihed there ramp they killed themslf's all of them died .
So push them back into a small remote area and tell them we will nuke you if you don't lay there weapon down and surrender and see what happens will they kill themself's or doom them self's to the incinerator BOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM. No 40 virgins waiting for them if they kill themself's
Yes i know it would be seen as cruel or wrong but to win a war you need to use tacktics that are brutal. leaders in the past that used unorthodox tactics allway won the day , being a gentleman so to speak means you lose .

Now you make me scared...
Nukes are a terrorist weapon.
If we (West) have a problem with the middle east and tries to solve it by brute force...
Hmmm...

They attack and murder us, because we Exist. The MUST kill us, because we are not Them. That is Their 1000 year History.
Their 'Means' of Mass Murdering as 'Improved', and they will deploy them against us.
Our 'Means' has also improved, and we will also use them.
Understand: They are NOT reacting to Our Response. We are Responding to Them.

The Us and Theme rethoric:(

Correct.

THEIR Rhetoric. IE: Us against EVERYONE that is NOT Us.

Just a question, after thinking about this:
What idiot's, at Sony, decided a film about the Assassination of a Murdering Dictator, should be a COMEDY?
Sony has more problems than North Korean Hacks.

I agree. But on the other hand it's been done before.

Saw that Great Film many years ago.

Jack Oakie's Mussolini was just as great as Chaplin's Hitler.

After far far too long knowing the unpleasant bad health effects, finally:


Car smoke ban 'to start in October'

Smoking in cars with children will be banned in England, under new laws put forward by the government.

The regulations laid before Parliament propose banning smoking in cars containing under 18s...



There is also the smoking distraction from driving that has proved fatally too dangerous too many times...
All in our only one world,
Martin

In a persons Home coming?

How would you enforce that?

'1984' of course. For The People's Good, of course.

Glad I'm an 'Old Man', and will not be living in a Left Wing Utopia.

Good luck to the young. Your future was written about many years ago.

Just to be clear regarding what the future will bring to the Jihadists:

I am NOT an advocate regarding what a scared and terrified population will demand, and do.

As Recorded History has shown (Having Studied History for a Lifetime, and Teaching History at a Local Community College for the past 20 Years):

The 'Response' will we horrific! Not because we are more evil, nor terrible than those in the past. But because we have 'The Means' to perhaps commit the greatest genocide in History.

Understand we will be cheering, at first.

Wonder what our reaction will be later.

I'll have to admit to being impressed by the Marketing jingoism!

About like any claim about a technology being green.

Some may be. Some may not.

How does one understand which is which. When Enormous Money, regarding Big Green, is involved?

It's about time.

Despise what the Castro Brother's did to Cuba, and the Cuban People. But despise other Dictator's, and we have 'Normal' Relations with them.

Don't we have to 'Teach' our children Right from Wrong?


Of course! Obligé!

Who taught the first child? Have we just arrived at the unmoved mover again?

Morals and ethics are entirely self discoverable. It does help to have a push however.


A push to where my friend?

Two good points.

Never really believed all the hype of supposedly Healthy Food, at Health Food Markets.

One must also be skeptical of Big Green as Big...

When money is involved: (fill-in you own negative phrase)

I've just got to wonder why that took so long Gary.

Cheers.

Obstruction of justice, or as many feel in this case injustice. Essentially internal affairs can't tamper (question) while a criminal inquiry (grand jury) is poking around.

100% correct.

Been there. Done that.

However, with NYPD... Internal Affairs can 'Sit In', observe, and take notes, regarding District Attorney's Investigations. Not speaking of what happens inside the Grand Jury Room.

Don't believe, but don't personally know, that eight Officer's are Under Investigation. Eight may be Part of the Investigation. But much fewer will Under Investigation regarding Serious Misconduct. A probable Termination Finding.

Will be interesting what will be done to the Medical Personnel (Non-NYPD), whose 'Response' appears to be deficient.

Do we need one to know right from wrong - definitely not! :)

Some do. Psychopaths for instance.


Of course we have to know right from wrong! It's called morals, or ethics, in a social point of view.

How much is inbred (by birth)? How much is taught?

Don't we have to 'Teach' our children Right from Wrong?

Different Culture's/Religions/Ideology's may have a different concepts of Right and Wrong.

Pimp is far better than the alternative right?


A pimp is the lowest form of animal to be found any where!




Why are you insulting the animals Ian?

Мишель...

Believe we fundamentally disagree regarding the existence of God.

But... I appreciate your tone, and fairness.

Unlike some Fanatical, Anti-Religion Rants posted here.

Bush Jr., following European Thought of Superiority Over Other's, attempted to impose a Foreign Concept upon Afghanistan and Iraq. Worked very well. Didn't it?

Oh please, Bush was far from the first to do it. Remember what the US did in the Philippines? Or South America? Or all those dictators that the US put in power?

Also I'm saying we don't have to impose any ideas here on anyone.

Since there seems a need, from some, to ALWAYS mention Bush. I decided to join the bandwagon.

Of course you are correct regarding the Historical Need for European/American to impose upon others.

Yes, I also agree, we have followed the Grand Traditions of Europe. Some bad.

Too bad Europe doesn't have the strength to continue, through force, imposing their idea's upon others. Which they would. Then we could rest, and throw lightening bolts at Europe.

Raistmer...

Believe everything you say about Religious Inertia and Religion 'Fading', only applies to Western Culture, which is a minority.

Isn't Religion, of whatever type, expanding outside Western Culture?

That only works if they want a democratically elected government. The assumption that they want a democratically elected government is false, hence the mess.

We don't have to install a new government because we are not removing the old one.

Who are we (Western Culture) to impose OUR idea's of Government upon anyone else.

Oh I forgot: We are Superior [sic] and know what is best for Them. Has worked very well in Sub-Sahara Africa and the Middle-East.
