To those who think Cuba is so terrific ...

... you're f***ing stupid.

As much as idiot "progressives" praise states such as Fidel's paradise and denounce their own country as a "fascist" state, a "police state" and other inanities, there really is nothing anywhere else on the planet that can compare to the United States' guarantees regarding expression and speech. Case in point:

HAVANA (AP) - Cuba has ordered jailed punk rocker Gorki Aguila, an outspoken critic of Fidel Castro and the communist government, to stand trial on Friday for "social dangerousness," a charge that could carry up to four years in prison. Authorities arrested the 39-year-old lead singer of Porno para Ricardo at his Havana home on Monday, shortly after the band had completed work on a new album. Cuban law defines "social dangerousness" as behavior contrary to "communist morality," and police use it to detain offenders before they have a chance to commit a crime.

Performing songs with angry lyrics that poke fun at or openly insult Fidel Castro and his brother Raul, who became Cuba's president in February, Porno para Ricardo is banned from official Cuban airwaves.

Yes, you'll see a bunch of morons in and around Denver this week sporting their Che and Mao t-shirts and hammer and sickle flags. And yes, they'll all be chiding America as an oppressive, sexist, racist, homophobic state. Don't hesitate for a second to think that 1) these folks are complete mental defectives, and 2) they actually like what Cuba, China and North Korea do to those who disagree with their respective governments. Just look at what "progressives" did to Stanley Kurtz at a local radio appearance today when he was discussing Barack Obama's ties to terrorist William Ayers, and what Obama himself is trying to do to a group who aired an ad dealing with the same subject.

There goes Hube, setting up his straw man again: "As much as idiot "progressives" praise states such as Fidel's paradise and denounce their own country as a "fascist" state, ...."

And just who are you referring to, Hube? Your straw man is the label, and probably anecdotal too.

By using this line of attack, your are revealing your desperation, your truly radical approach to politics, in support of the swift-boating kind of smearing. Instead, why not have a dialogue about the issues you support and those you oppose. I know you can do that, Hube!

Obama laid out his platform in some detail last night. Let's discuss it!

Wake up, old man. I said this, later in the post:

The rest of your comment is just the same old Democrat talking points, which, like you must be in your fossilized condition, is just tired.
