Just as a quick jab, maybe I want poor Canadians to be paid by rich beachfront property owning Miamians? Just something to think about.

Inflation: It would cost more today to retard economic growth and combat climate change than it will in 2025. That's if you agree that the warming hiatus will end, and that humans have an substantial effect on the Earth's climate.

This is exactly how you sustain the development of renewable energy. Using it to lower the cost of oil drilling might come with innovations in renewable energy.

I don't know anyone against renewable energy. The problems I have with it are the government favoring it over a neutral policy and mandates forcing me to use it when it's not yet the least costly.

You completely circumvented my post. The OP quote is contrary to your post. They supposedly want communicative technology in Cuba. He did them a favor and provided it. Anything can be illegal technology. Is a Playboy magazine illegal technology? It uses airbrushed techniques and Photoshop? You can't complain that the United States enforces an embargo on the internet then declare some things as illegal technology.

Go ahead and bring laptops and cell phones into to the United States. Actually, get hired by Russia to bring cell phones and laptops into the United States. The worst that would happen is you'd be called an outsourcer. Sorry, importing phones and computers does not constitute subversion in the United States, that's just marketing and capitalism. You'd have to be a hardcore hypocrite to blame the United States for your lack of internet and then arrest Americans when they provide internet.

If I'm reading this /. article right he did nothing wrong. The Cuban Totlitarian Dictatorship supposedly wants internet and access to information. Its America who is to blme for their lack of access. But he was jailed for bringing information? I think I have to sit down for a moment. I don' know who to believe anymore.

I'm asking this out of ignorance. What else was included in your constitution in regards to freedom? Remember though that our constitution is old enough to drink in the United States while yours is kinda not. Our Constitution's great great grandkids can drink in the U.S. while your constitition kind can't.

I'll take that as a no. Kinda sad reaction. So you're projecting a significant amount of other large economy's oppression on the U.S..

The thing is, I don't feel a need to say horrible things about my country because I am allowed to say them. But go for it, happy September 11th, enjoy the freedom Americans' posses and talk trash about the United States.

Venezuela is an excellent counter argument. They are becoming just as dictatorial and scapegoating the United States. But the current administration turns a blind eye to ideological equals. The embargo is not a contributing factor. We need to stop ignoring and forgetting Cuba and blast their human rights violations.
