US Stands Firm!

We're not about to be pushed around by just anybody. Oh sure, we'll let the Chinese get away with economic, environmental and human rights violations (after all, what's shoddy merchandise, massive pollution and slave labor in exchange for ... I forget, what do we get out of this) without doing much more than chiding them from afar or meeting with the Dalai Lama. But when it comes to the dreaded presence of a Communist state that is smaller than China's pinky toe, and which has the international reach of a tic-tac, we stand firm!

So it's with relief I heard that Bush has reaffirmed our embargo against Cuba. Yup. Since 1963, the US has refused to trade with Cuba. Because once you start trading with those Commies, then the next step is red flags marching down US streets. Except, wait, isn't trade with China the administration's antidote to communism there?

We all know what this is about. It's about that loud and lively voting bloc in Miami. Candidates need Florida's votes to win an election, and you can't win those votes without bashing Castro & standing firm on the embargo. Good thing that all those Taiwanese never made a dash for the US - just think of the voting bloc power they would have held.
