Danny while education has a great thirst for the internet access, health

    Danny you yourself make a great deal of noise about the quality of Cuban
medicine.  Now it is "POOR ME" again. Pick a lane Danny. Which is it?

There is no contradiction here, Kennykins. Despite the best efforts of
all you embargo-Nazis, Cuba continues to maintain the best health care
system in the region, and obtain access to the international internet.
Again, because of your beloved embargo, access to the internet must be
strictly rationed based on the needs of the entire community, health
care applications being one of the top priorities. Home-use will have
to wait.

Commerce will have to first become free of the yolk of
socialism before the dynamism of the Internet will take root in Cuba.

    You're kidding right?

No. Check out all the joint ventures in tourism, mining and
pharmaceuticals, for example.

That's why all the new construction, right Danny?

The roadblock has been the Cuban government's paranoid need to maintain
"control" of the access to the internet.

    What fiber optic network? Oh YOU mean that the U.S. should have PAID
through the ass to lay a gigantic fiber optic cable to Cuba

I mean they should allow Cubans to pay for access to the regional
fiber-optic network, just like Mexico, Jamaica or the DR. Eventually,
it won't matter because of the planned link to Venezuela. I know it
pisses you off, but that's your problem.
