Do you think the new relation between Cuba and the US is positive or negative?
I guess it depends on the individual. If someone left Cuba many years ago they now can go home for visits to see family and vice versa. Without a doubt there will be some business advantages and my guess is the cost for Cuban cigars is about to go down as well.
President Nixon initiated normal relations with China the biggest communist country in the world several years ago. Today just about everything in the typical household in the U.S. is made in China.
President Clinton normalized relations with Vietnam and the world didn't end. This was a place where over 58,000 U.S. soldiers died.
I don't believe normalized relations with Cuba will hurt America. My guess is more people will list it as one of their vacation destinations.
Positive. There are many corrupt politicians who will try to stop it happening though. The endpoint of this is ending the trade embargo. If that happens, then we'll see what socialist Cuba can do without a trillion dollar handicap. An economy that pumps most of its money into public healthcare and education is an economy that scares the bejeezus out of corrupt Washington politicians who don't want the American people to start thinking its a good thing.
I don't think that a relationship with Cuba is very good until they begin to give more rights to their citizens. I have this stance against any regime.
Despite what some people think, the money does not trickle down to the poor in any shape or form. Not even for education or health. It only goes to the dictators. If you don't believe me, take a look at the hospital the average Cuban goes to and just imagine if Castro would be seen dead in a place like that. I have family that sent pictures when their child was born and the walls are bare cinder-blocks. It is extremely sad what they go through there, so much so they are willing to risk their lives to get somewhere else.
As for what just happened this week between the US and Cuba, I do not think it is very significant, unless you want cigars. Travel for Americans is not going to change. It will be too much of a hassle, especially when so many other options in the Caribbean exist, such as the Dominican Republic.
As for raising the limit on how much money Americans can send there, that is a token law since people sent whatever they wanted to anyway. No one was keeping count.

There seems to be a fine line between "I can do this" and "let go and let God".It would appear we can and must do both. But perhaps there is another way to look at it.
