Opinions and my need to be enlightened

Recently, I posted here about an article I read in the Rocky Mountain News titled Colorado Courting Cuba, that talked about the chances that Colorado businessmen and even government officials start working towards increasing the trade with Cuba.

I posted a crash course to Colorado businessmen and wrote some comments on the article too.

And, a couple of days ago, I sent a letter to the editor. 200 words, so you go and figure how do you state and opinion in that space, and letter was heavily edited... Anyway, it was published today and the reader's comment were not late, at all.

I keep my position, though. If you want to business for the sake of business, there is nothing that I can do about it. But do not come with the crap that you're going to kill policies with kindness.

Now what? do they want to cover their business and money-making purposes with an humanitarian mission to bring democracy to Cuba? Give me a damned break.

That's an insult to my intelligence and, as I've said before, to the memory of those murdered by the regimen and the sacrifice of those rotting in castro's dungeons.

Go and take a look at the comments see my response at the end of the thread. Please, feel free to add you two cents.

Good for you Cubanita!

I added my 2 cents ... most of these opinions are based on faulty information, 1/2 truths, and the regular propaganda ... thank you for having the courage to write the truth!

I wish you well :) Melek

I had to go back a couple of times ... OMG ... BTW, it's not right that you could only write 200words and yet those who post comments can write so much more ... anyway ... "No hay mas ciego que el que no quiera ver" ...

I wish you well :) Melek
