A Floridian's Quip
If the state is going to raise- the third increase in as many months- my cigarette taxes in the guise of user fees, they can increase revenues exponentially by doing the same for Twinkies, Big Macs, and Bud.
Remember the great opportunities waiting out there for American businesses if only the embargo were lifted? Take a gander at Cuba's outstanding debt, that is the amount the bankrupt nation owes the rest of the world here.
Venezuela $11.367 billion
Spain $3.200 billion
China $3.170 billion
Japan $2.775 billion
That's just the top 4 on the list provided by the Cuba Transition Project. What was that about extending credit to the regime?
