Alabama and Cuba just signed a deal for $20 million, bringing up their total commerce to about $170 million dollars in agricultural products. In the current deal Cuba will be purchasing wood, paper and chickens from Alabama.

With so many agricultural commerce between Cuba and US states (like Nebraska), it's hard to believe people in Cuba still can't get enough food. Oh yes, I forgot those pesky tourists that get all the carne con arroz y frijoles.

What was it that Bush said a couple days back?

"Trade enables a tyrant to stay in power."

Is this not trade? Are we not enabling then the tyrant to stay in power? Uncommon Sense has more.
