An opinion doesn’t leave a bruise. An opinion doesn’t draw blood. An opinion doesn’t break bones. In the millions of years our species has existed this has always been true. Sticks and stones at the hands of men cause these sorts of injuries. Words might hurt your feelings, insult or challenge long held beliefs – but names will never harm you.
So what is your thinking, Havanaban, in imprisoning and torturing your fellow citizens for merely voicing an opinion? It clearly shows the pure evil in your nature. Instead of expressing a counter opinion, which you surely cannot possess, you take the route of the baboon and pick up a stick. You beat and jail those who do not believe as you believe. I am not afraid of your opinion so why are you so cowardly and timid of the opinion of others?
Havanaban this also demonstrates pure ignorance of the information age. You could have just let these journalists live at home and continue to use your secret police to keep an eye on them. BUT Noooooooooooooo! You and the rest of your troop of primates get yourselves all worked up into a lather to justify the unjust then commit these evil crimes against humanity. So until you let those poor journalists go home we’re going to keep complaining about it. Take it from me – this is bad P.R. You don’t need this aggravation. One of these humans is going to die soon if you don’t let them go and then you’ve got a martyr on your hands. Haven’t you shot your public image in the foot long enough? Do you like being called the Havanaban?
You’ve also saddled your wagon to a nut like Chavez just for some oil. Heck! You guys have plenty of oil and I know some guys up here that would be glad to extract it for you in an environmentally friendly way as long as all the Cuban public gets their fair share and not just the Havanaban. Why go through this aggravation? Now public opinion widely believes Chavez is crazy. Do you want to be associated with a nut? Cut your ties with this fool now and let those journalists go. Associating with a fool and meting out barbaric treatment for expressing opinions is just not good policy. It is terrible for your image. It makes guys like me want to bring you down more not less. You must know that when it is your turn to die you will be remembered for evil. You will be put into the Hitler historical column and those who suffered under your torture in the Gandhi column. They will be remembered as saints and you as stains. And I know you young Havanaban think you are going to live forever but take it from Fidel – you’re not. Remember, Fidel assured you only a couple of months ago that he would live to be 120 but we know that was a lie now. Your lives may be shorter than you think. You sit on a powder keg whose fuse was always blow out by Fidel’s big mouth. But Fidel is quiet now. Every dog has his day. You should be trying to build a society that creates enough wealth to put an end to things like dengue fever instead of this foolishness. Let those journalists go now for God’s sake. If you do I promise I will immediately stop efforts to ruin this year’s tourist season for you. I will not blog any further stories like tomorrows blog. Can we make a deal?
