Plantation Raul

Plantation Raul

What if you found out the farmer next door was keeping slaves? What would you do if you found out this farmer beat and even killed his slaves to coerce compliance? If the farmer said he provided health care and educated his slaves would that make owning slaves alright? What if in reality the farmer was not actually giving his slaves health care? What if he was paying them 50 cents per day to buy all life necessities and restricting the uses of free education by telling the slaves what they can read, write, see, listen to or think about? Would you still buy some of that cotton because the price was right? Maybe you wouldn't but these exact circumstances don't stop greedy capitalists like Sherritt International from exploiting cheap Cuban labor for profit.

Therefore, when we kick their greedy asses out of Cuba and seize all of their holdings and that of the Chinese, Spanish hoteliers and other exploiters - no one will even blink an eye or feel remotely sorry for the billions they will lose because of their greedy ways. Sorry but the Cuban people never signed any of those deals so if you want to sue you'll have to name Castro as the defendant. Unfortunately, we will seize all of Castro's financial empire for the Cuban people. You can have his carcass.

Very well put Tomas, to equate what Cubans live through every day to slavery, is simply brilliant, very good way of explaining it, that's how I will tell it from now on.
And Happy Father's day to you, may you enjoy it with your children.

LMAO..Tomas:
I loved your message to the resistance. Steal everything, good advice my friend, also you need to do one in Spanish, so they can really understand you over there, in the prison Island.
Keep your messages to the resistance going, they are really good.

Thanks for the best wishes Vana. You're a real doll! We're trying to get the message done in Spanish but I'm an English speaker. I could do the Spanish too but it would not be good as my English. It will be better to get a native Cuban to do the Spanish.
