Thanks Enrique and Clem
The information that follows was sent to me by Enrique and Clem about the tourist situation in Cuba - which means their economy. It is collapsing. I know you guys in Havana and there abouts are reading this so let me pose these questions to you. Do you think things will turn around with the world now wised up to your bait and switch tourism? The rest of the planet doesn't operate like you guys. You are the only game in town in Cuba but there are plenty of other tourist destination that have reputable histories. You knuckle heads have shaken down your clients and they are not coming back as long as the current collection of collectivists are in charge. If you think things will get better you are completely deluded. Are you going to wait until Cubans explode in anger at your greedy mismanagement of their nation? It wouldn't be the first time rulers miscalculated and wound up dead in the streets. Will you generals order your troops to kill the Cuban people for trying to be free and productive or will you kill Raul and a few key tyrants and become the heroes of the Cuban people? Do all of you guys in charge down there still believe you can create wealth without free people and their untaxed labor? The end time of the experiment draws near. What's it going to be? Will Raul and the top guys split like Batista and let the military take over for a peaceful transition to a free Cuba - or will lots of blood need to be spilled? There are several groups of competing interests in Cuba who will answer these questions in the near term. I hope it's peaceful for everybody.
