A few people I'd like to see go to Cuba

With the new Cuba-US news I can almost see the local developers smelling money. They must be seeing green. Wouldn't it be fantastic if they left us alone and took all their business over to Cuba now to help build that country? There's billions to be made guys! Hurry!!

Here are some of my favorite tweets from last night:



Greg Saunders @waltisfrozen 
Bashing Obama's Cuba deal b/c of their human rights abuses? You guys were just defending the torture and rape of detainees LAST WEEK.

Top Conservative Cat ‏@TeaPartyCat
That awkward moment when Republicans are defending torture, and then start complaining about Cuba's human rights violations.

FranK ‏@everythingfrank
Can’t wait for the mojito in #Cuba    Thanks Obama!

Businessweek ‏@BW
Why should you care about Cuba? Hint: you can now bring home cigars. http://buswk.co/1wGMBOI  

NYT Sports ‏@NYTSports
An improved relationship with Cuba is absolutely huge for Major League Baseball. http://nyti.ms/1GtPVj3  

Kenny Mayne ‏@Kenny_Mayne 
Then have Cuba play the movie.

The Daily Beast ‏@thedailybeast
Cigar Dealers Light Up Over Cuba News http://thebea.st/1sB3F3v  

CNNMoney ‏@CNNMoney
$2 billion.
That's how much Americans sent to Cuba last year despite trade being blocked http://cnnmon.ie/13zRYEA

Excellent post.

This is huge and I can't take sides.

Growing up in 60's Miami, I have known countless Cuban families and I have heard first-hand of the murders, and how some families were forced onto a plane by soldiers with one hour's notice, never to see their home again.

However, it's true that the U.S. position has been fruitless and nothing has changed there in 50 years.

Maybe some good will come of this.

Careful what you wish for. Developer money is endless.

I wonder how different or similar Cubans are compared to Cuban Americans.
