Beyonce and Jay-Z spent their 5th wedding in Cuba
Beyonce and Jay-Z spent their 5th wedding anniversary celebrating in Havana, Cuba. Cuba is a dictatorship and has been so even before Castro was in power. We looked the other way during the Batista regime, but for decades we have had sanctions on trade and travel by Americans to Cuba.
One of the chief reasons we do so is because the Cuban-American population in Florida support these restrictions and Florida is a large swing state when it comes to the electoral college. Of course, no politician would admit this.
Now, the ironic thing is that have billions of dollars in trade every year with China, though it is China and not Cuba that supports the rogue North Korean regime bent on war. It is China and not Cuba that poses a threat to Taiwan.
We have sent millions of our jobs overseas to China over the past 30 or so years, allowing WalMart to make even more profits as it destroys jobs here. Why? Because China has power and influence and is a Permanent member of the U.N. Security Council.
A number of Republican Senators have signed a letter stating they support a planned filibuster (which requires 60 votes to override) of any Senate vote on a gun control bill. That filibuster would include universal background checks, which have shown 94% support among the American population and even 80% plus support of NRA members. Are Senate Republicans that extreme in Their ideological positions? For many of them, yes.
