    The embargo was the result of tensions between the US and a nation that no longers exists as it did back then. It is time to end the embargo and open up a trade market for our US companies.

    Oops, I meant the question to be "Should the US end its embargo to Cuba?"

    Yup, I had to scramble like crap yesterday to get Heinz ketchup small packs (didn't want to buy a bottle - once opened it needs to be refrigerated).
    Even though Heinz and Kraft, Coke and Pepsi are in Canada manufactured also,..... we, or no other country can send those items there, because it's American owned.
    Now, not on behalf of the Cubans... but behalf of the American embargo against them.

    The Bay of Pigs and Cuban Blockade were in the early 1960's. The blockade more than served its' purpose. End the embargo.

    I got some here, just wouldn't be legal to send them to you. Bought 3 boxes in Mexico for a very good price. But only have 2 left.

    Well, what I paid in Mexico would cost double that in Canada, easily ! Actually bought them to resell, but don;t think that will happen unless I go to a bar.

    Can't believe this thread already got a NO vote. It's not an immigration issue..... it's a trade issue !

    I am curious about that as well--hopefully Lue C Fur will explain his vote.

    I voted no for a few reasons. The main one is that this was a poll suggessted bi klein. over95 obliged and here it is. And now he is shocked that someone voted "no". Mebbe the next time u want a poll that u alreadi have a clear opinion(answer) about , then u should specifi that ur approved answer be the onl choice. Gee Whiz!

    I can't care less. In a way, I hope the US keeps the embargo. Because, otherwise Canada would probably lose out. Not probably, but forsure, actually.
    We need to keep our trade surpluses (they earn us money).
    The US can keep it's trade deficits , (they have had over a decade now), and keep losing money.
    Seems, that is your wish !

    Besides, it was nice to go somewhere, where not 1 single American was to be found ! :happy-very:

    see post #4 , hypocrite. I seem to have found the "y" on my keyboard. Actually, I needed to call klein a hypocrite and copied and pasted the "y". Necessity , the mother of invention.

    no response to the accusation of hypocrisy? Once again you are doing the Kleinwarp dance.


    I remember doing the Klein Warp
    Drinking those moments when
    The blackness would hit me and the void would be calling
    Let's do the Klein warp again...
    Let's do the Klein warp again!

    It's just a jump to the left
    And then another step to the left
    With your hands on your ears
    and then pretend you are deaf
    But it's the constant evasion that drives everyone else insane,
    Let's do the Klein Warp again!

    It's so dreamy, oh fantasy free me
    So you can't see me, no not at all
    In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention
    Well-secluded, I see all
    With a bit of a mind flip
    You're there in the time slip
    And nothing can ever be the same
    You're spaced out on sensation, like you're under sedation
    Let's do the Klein Warp again!

    Was just another example of things Americans can't buy in their "free" country.

    Actually, the biggest seller are Cuban cigars to americans here, besides ofcourse medication and even smaller , over the counter drugs,such as Tylenol 1.
