    Karl Marx was right! After any revolution, there will be some chaos. But if we let socialism and communism just happen, everything's going to be great. Cuba, don't let the Fascist, Imperialist, Capitalist Americans get into your land. You have something amazing going on there! These big corporations will destroy your land. They will will put deadly chemicals into your food and rip you off by forcing you to buy poisonous food at extravagant prices. No to America, no to capitalism, viva la revolucion!

    Keep the cancerous, vile American businesses OUT of Cuba. American corporations and companies survive off of the blood of all civilizations they come into contact with. Keep the parasites OUT

    I wouldn't trust Capitalism as far as I could see them. Keep Cuban socialism. Cuban's grow the food for Cuban's.

    Americans will destroy Cuba just like they have done with there own country. Big money before food. Pesticides will take over.

    That man is right just because large agriculture companies produce doesn't mean they solve the hunger problem because of the distribution of food. I think we should practice more organic, sustainable methods.

    Cuba is one of the last countries that have not been ruined, by 'Big Agri's' genetic cross-species engineering terminator-seed like monopolistic racketeering. That, the blockcade, has been actually as a blessing in disguise with this right wing blockade the past decades but, yes, how long before 'THEY', the types Amy's guest Mr John Perkins says he was once and wrote and talked about. I'm happy Obama lifted the embargo ban, as it I have always thought it hurt more the people in both Cuba and USA as well, small business, Cubans ect and never believed it solved anything political either: besides Castro just used it another reason to cricize US neocon forms of 'Capitalism ( the corporate-facist forms, I don't mean the democratic capitalism that is more people-friendly and moderate with some respect of life and people, unlike the system of what can one call it? Mammon/Wealth inordinate love and lust that is destroying also the American Middleclass according to many thinkers it seems to me, like Prof Chomsky, M Moore and his ideological nemisis on the palecon tea party right; Alex Jones, who prefers less state regulation.not more as solution to national economic ills but, he agress Big NeoFacism is not on steroid  and it's system is bulldozing the enviroment into the sea, so to speak off the coast of water-drought stricken California,,,,…..with all it's chemtrails's effect on rain patterns and soil ph values also being wondered about, as Big Agri insists on not giving the public the right to know what it stuffs down it's throat via it's mouth by blocking with Big Agri softmoney to bribe the Californian's right to know what is in their and their families food when the blocked prop 137and. so, some people just might ask. including people like Clint Eastwood who lives there on a nice piece of land near Carmel. Cali… they might reflect and ask; which land is more free now: Cuba or California, USA without feeling they are 'unpatriotic' or 'pinko' to do so. 
    I'd like to go listen to some real Cuban local folk and pop and jazz music and visit some of those places that guitarist Ry Cooder visited and made a music video film of. which i can reccomend as a well done film and worth viewing for you all. Cuba has also great tasting Expresso flavour coffee, ( I had that in Florida at local Cuban street cafe's amd resteraunts,…while there, in past so i know,..) and, I like most Cuban people i have met; they seem down to Earth and value nature and folk arts and fine art too. This is all stuff aside politics the last i mention here but it's politics that have ruined relations between the peoples of Cuba and USA, not the everyday people,blame who you believe is responsible; but, i am just sayin' it's so as result, ..I'd also like to have whisky at Hemingway's bar there but have done that in Keywest ; ) 

    So, I look forward to one day touristing there, but. not sure if i ever will. Cuba, Costa Rica and also Kuwaii but. Pulitzer prize reporter Jon Rappoport reports, wrote that about 6-7 Big Agri/Pharmaceutical companies have huge state payed contracts to spray the whole (?) island with pestices and or insecticides; is that needed?  Or is it all one BIG SCAM that endangers both Human Public Health and the animals and the natural fauna there of the enviromental mileu? What do you guys think?.. i saw local surf girls there who grew up surfing and went into Google Maps street view and thought i found Paradise untouched but,……is it Paradise lost and, like the Vietnamese in the future animal and even human kids will be born deformed all for Big Saturnus-Molech Mammon as the price of Human Sacrifice to make more mulah for the fraction of the 1%, that Alex Jones calls: offshore global cartel MAFIA(oso) Banksters?

    Can they not leave anything natural. normal and beautiful alone? Must 'THEY' whoever they are always deform, destroy, deaden. degenerate, and zombiefy sick all the people in areas they visit leaving them hungry, helpless, intimidated. decieved. duped, exploited still further, out-priced in food and water rises and gauging, and so on?

    Is it as bad as Alex Jones says, better or far worse? 

    What is the solution, once one has prayed, hoped, listened to some people; what is a nation and people to do to survive and make sure their kids do too in the future? 
    who is telling the TRUTH, real facts about GMO Food safety, and Global warming issue and who is lying? 
    For lies will lead to more waste and no solution and truth can lead to a way out and solutions. see? 

    So, it's important that Journalists and good scientists and doctors are FREE to speek Freely without some kind of MAFIA scaring them to be quiet when they work so hard to find truth. ……no?

    Capiche? Get it? 

    GOD help us all by grace energies holy to find the way to survive and then help ourselves to do it with  the Human Mind Resources full of gifts together as one race to do that too, …imho

    Why are we trying to get Cuban's to learn our agricultural processes when we are the ones who should be learning their organic techniques?!

    "the stick is going up, look, here is the water, look, i am not doing it, its going up on its own" HAHAHA what a child's magic trick. Does he know about how many people can see him on youtube… you can rewind and look at his hand. children look at the top of the stick thats going up, and miss your hand, and you can fool them… Im tempted to think he's making a complex satirical joke toward american journalism – no way he can be such a goofy fuck
