Buddy all your posts end in some shitty remark that makes anything even slightly smart sound stupid. It's not 'earlier' when it keeps repeating.

ScrewballKonceptLess than nothing? You do realize that Cubans make up a large percentage of Miami's population, right? I could type out for several hours about all the bad things that he's enforced on the Cuban people, but it wouldn't take more than reading a history book or watching a documentary on this to get informed on what he's done. I could type for hours about the bad things the US has enforced on the Cuban people, but it wouldn't take more than reading a history book or watching a documentary on this to get informed on what your country has done.

I'm aware of what was done. Don't try and patronize me or make me look like I'm some dim witted idiot that slept through his high school and college history classes. Times were clearly different then. There were obviously some actions that I would agree with and disagree with that the US made, but when the Cubans had a saying that Castro was such a powerful man to the point of he couldn't catch a cold, the proof is there in his actions and where Cuba is in relation to the rest of the world.

ScrewballKoncept Sorry but I usually wouldn't argue with someone about world topics but Castro was one of if not the biggest names of Communists in the West. How you can be "sad to see him go" when he wanted to assist in the very destruction of the American way baffles me beyond belief.You act like that's a bad thing. The "American way" is basically eating burgers, and bombing other countries for profit.

Not going to respond to this since I'm not sure if you're being serious or just trolling

isn't it funny how commies call themselves atheists, but establish cults of personality of their dictators as divine beings?
The irony is amazing especially if you realise the term cult of personality came from angry santa himself:

The political use of the phrase came first in a letter from Karl Marx to German political worker, Wilhelm Blos, 10 November 1877:[1]

Neither of us cares a straw of popularity. Let me cite one proof of this: such was my aversion to the personality cult [orig. Personenkultus] that at the time of the International, when plagued by numerous moves [...] to accord me public honor, I never allowed one of these to enter the domain of publicity [...][1][2]

The terms "cult of personality" and "personality cult" were further popularized by Nikita Khrushchev's initially secret speech On the Cult of Personality and Its Consequences given on the final day of the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, February 25, 1956, which criticized the lionization of Josef Stalin and its contrariness to the originators of Marxist doctrine. Robert Service notes that a more accurate translation of the Russian "культ личности" ("kul't lichnosti") is the "cult of the individual".[3]

Koncept the proof is there in his actions and where Cuba is in relation to the rest of the world.

One of the highest HDI's in latin america, longest life expectancy in this hemisphere, and a GNI per capita similar to China all while having little access to international banking thanks to US sanctions that where voted against in the UN by everyone but the US and Israel?

Vulcan: A 3.0 gpa won't get you into the college of your choice, if you're not trying to improve then you don't deserve the college of your dreams...but don't listen to me one of my posts was downfragged so everything I will ever say is irrelevant

I'll reword what I said since some people don't get it: you should not settle for a 3.0 if there was any way you could have gotten higher.

Things have certainly improved since Obama went to meet with Raul Castro in 2015, but prior to that arguably the most modern car that you would see in the streets would be from the 60s at latest. Still I've ran some numbers and gotten some results

  • As far as HDI in Latin America, they're doing alright but they're still behind more established countries like Argentina, Panama, and Chile, which is to be expected but they could certainly be doing much better. All these numbers will be from 2015. Source
  • Your claim about Cuba having the longest life expectancy in this hemisphere (not sure if you meant Western or Northern) was incorrect as well. While they were basically tied with Costa Rica, trailing by .01 years, they still trailed Panama, and the US, Chile, and Canada depending on how you classify this hemisphere. Source
  • GNIs were a bit more ambiguous. Cuba was listed in a bracket that spans a large income range, so unless you have some numbers that I don't have then I can't comment on this category. Source

Regardless of all of that, overall Fidel Castro can be noted as okay (I guess) for Cuba economically. Socially, it was what can be expected out of a communist government. Suppression of the people and everything for the elites. I'll still go back to my saying that I heard that the man couldn't catch a cold because of how much he was at the top in Cuba. Still, I'm glad he's gone. I hope Cuba gets a fair election of who they want to lead them and hope that they don't ever have to deal with the crap that they've been dealing with (socially) for the past 60ish years.

In academics you get the grades you work for. It's not like I wanted to get a 70 on an exam when I want to get 85+ so I'll have good grades. It's not like after I get my grade back I can schedule and appointment with my professor to debate with him/her about how despite me getting questions x, y, and z wrong according to the answer key, I should get full credit for it.

Isn't that every comment about culture by anyone? I swear not one in three remarks about cultural anything is done by anyone directly affected by said culture. That, or tumblrettes throwing a fit, but then again, they wouldn't be affected even if they're of that race, as they'd never leave mom's house.

what if they talk about it because the hardships they experience are a result of that culture? I mean, i can gloat all i want for having an uncut dick, while you have to live with a permanently scarred monster, as there is a funny correlation in the USA between the introduction of the internet becoming mainstream (1999-2001 ) (79%) and a significant drop in penis circumcisions only 5 years later (56%).

[quote] Still, I'm glad he's gone. I hope Cuba gets a fair election of who they want to lead them and hope that they don't ever have to deal with the crap that they've been dealing with (socially) for the past 60ish years.[/quote]
Make like Pinochet and get tossed out of a helicopter. :^)[/quote]

You're acting like the Cuban Missile Crisis didn't happen, stop it.

My dad is fucking retarded and all he does is scream at me regardless of what I do b/c i constantly get distracted from shit i'm supposed to be doing even though eventually it does get done. He only ever seems to be happy when he spends money on my brother and I, even though putting himself in debt makes him angry beyond belief. I really badly wanna permanently move in with my mom b/c I'm 16 and New York state says i can make that decision but i don't know how to go about doing it (especially because my dad would still see me from dropping off and picking up my brother). Even my therapist agrees that I seem happier talking about my mom's house environment than my dad's.

What do i do :(

FreshYou're acting like the Cuban Missile Crisis didn't happen, stop it.

The US should have just accepted the missiles being there instead of throwing a temper tantrum that almost lead to nuclear war. The US was already doing exactly the same thing in Turkey and had already attempted to invade Cuba once. They had every right to put a nuclear deterrent there especially given the US's open aggression towards Cuba. The US's blockade of Cuba was a act of war by anny standards and the americans should count themselves lucky that they weren't bathed in a nuclear inferno due to their reckless actions.

BeelthazusI hate it when people from one culture talk about the problems other cultures face, as if they went through those hardships themselves. Its one of the seven asinine things you can do on the internet.

I understand that you hate America because you say it regularly but this post makes no sense. First off, I don't dispute anything you said the US was doing at the time but you act as if Russia was an angel during the cold war and did nothing at all that could have been considered "an act of war". Wrong, do some research.

Secondly, nobody wins in a nuclear exchange. Anything fired at the US would have been returned right back to Russia and we all would have been "bathed in a nuclear inferno".
