“Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An’ if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know…”
In fact, amigos: there wont be trouble either way. The Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (euphemized by the media as “Cuba”) would be perfectly happy without Obama’s visit. They know Obama craves this cheap publicity/photo-op/legacy-stunt–so they’ll humor him during the visit –while making even more humiliating demands against the U.S. And why not? Obama has caved to every humiliation from the Castros thus far. And in the process the Castros have already gotten everything they need from him. Obama already delivered the goods.
You see, amigos: what maters to the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (euphemized by the media as “Cuba”) is the cash-flow from the U.S. to their bank accounts (laundered as tourism expenditures and remittances.)
This financial windfall (much of it at the expense of the American taxpayer) began almost the minute Obama took office in 2009 and has ballooned to exceed–annually– the annual subsidies from the Soviet Union to Cuba in the 1980’s.
Some sources show this cash-flow from the U.S. as the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate’s top source of income. But–as you’ve probably noticed–the U.S. media insists on defining this state of affairs as a “cruel economic embargo.” If after tumbling down the rabbit hole Alice had found such disconnect between reality and what she heard and read–she’d have flipped-out for sure.
You see, amigos: “Remesas Totales” (as seen above preceding the longest bar ) refers to cash remittances received in Cuba. The overwhelming majority of these issue from the U.S., owing to Obama’s executive orders. Much of this economic lifeline issues from Cubans in the U.S. who claim to be refugees from Castroism and so could be getting up to $1200 in assorted U.S. welfare benefits monthly.
Cubans have a saying mostly used against bullshit artists and to close business deals: “Aqui lo que cuenta es el cash!” (The thing that really counts is cash!) The Castros have already been getting plenty of that courtesy of Obama. So the rest is mostly bullshit for photo-ops and long-winded editorials by pretentious policy wonks.
