25. Straight outta the CANF/ Alpha 66/ Commandos F-4 handbooks
".. an action as simple as participating in this message board could get you arrested in Cuba."

Bullshit. You simply have to show some link to prove that.

"Cuba has wonderful health care, fine schools, and no freedom of expression. "

Jeezuz, this 'argument' is so self contradicting. How the F do you think that they achieved the levels of health care and education that they have in Cuba? Do you think that it was forced on them by Castro? I think not. It is exactly the freedom of expression that Cubans have, and that includes professional educators and doctors of all branches of practice, that has enabled them to achieve the goals of the people of Cuba as expressed freely by them all.

"You may be interested to know that Cubans can be jailed for being HIV positive."

Just like the USA - as in; SOME people can be arrested and charged for deliberate or reckless infection of unaware partners who become infected.

Cuba has the lowest AIDS rate and levels in the west. Mainly due to their very effective AIDS awareness education programs, as well as the excellent treatment facilities and programs all over Cuba for HIV patients.
Cuba maintains the lowest HIV/AIDS prevalence in the Western Hemisphere -- 0.03% of the country's population is estimated to be HIV-positive, compared with 0.42% of the U.S. population

"You may also be interested to know that Cuba prohibits free travel of citizens in their own country. The result is that "black" Cubans are kept separated from their "lighter" counterparts in a fashion that looks a lot like Johannasburg."

Wow! Such amazing crap, it sickening. Obviously, you've never been to Cuba. I've never seen Cubans restricted from traveling anywhere by anything other than lack of funds or their jobs. Cuba is one of the most 'integrated' countries anywhere I've been. Weird, isn't it, that there aren't that many black "exiles" in Miami?.. quite the opposite as a matter of fact.

"But that ignores the point that Castro is an evil despot."

Aside from the fact that "Castro's Cuba" exhibits none of the hallmarks of a brutal dictatorship.. the "evil" part is a good 'argument'. :shrug:
