A Farm Bureau Revelation

At Capitol Hill Cubans

Saturday, May 9, 2009
From the Springfield State-Journal:

Even if human-rights issues were settled and trade barriers taken down, buying and selling in Cuba is not a simple matter of transportation, says Illinois Farm Bureau president Phil Nelson.

"They are still using farm practices from the 1950s. It's very primitive, and there's not a lot of technology, even though it's 90 miles from our shores," Nelson said.

The farm bureau has been among the leading advocates of easing trade restrictions with Cuba, including participating in a March trade mission.

Nelson, who was briefed on the March trip, said health and safety are chief concerns as a result of agricultural practices in Cuba, especially for livestock that eventually could be shipped to the United States.

"They have some tremendous health issues with their animals and livestock. If we truly open up exports, we don't want to injure our livestock by bringing in diseases," said Nelson, who added that it would take time to set up a U.S.-style health and inspections system in Cuba.

Money is the next major challenge, Nelson said. Cuba doesn't have much cash.

"Credit is a big thing in Cuba. They just don't turn cash over, and they'd like to see that credit extended," said Nelson, noting that while some short-term loans are allowed, long-term credit is the key to opening Cuba to U.S. products.

One must post the question to Mr. Nelson and any other United States Citizen that would like the US Banks to be able to loan to Cuba.

If our banks have just been through one of the biggest liquid and credit crisis the US has seen in a very long time, why would you even suggest that they be allowed to lend money to this government that doesn't its debt.

Here is the debt in number, 2004

[/list:u:6573]
That total as of 2008 rose to over $31.000 billion

Should the US bank lend this debtor any money and then pretend to get bailed out by American taxpayers?

Although this is the english section of Secretos de Cuba I will put my "english with barriers" to the test, I'm asking everybody to bear with me for the sake of the article.

Recently some very close family relatives went on a trip to Cuba to check on the cuban branch of our family (what is left of it) for a couple of weeks and upon arrival back on the land of the free they where all sick of diseases long forgotten with alien names to me.... conjuntivitis and keratitis..... I rapidly movilized my humanity to a cuban pharmacy in Hialeah and bought some "colirio", eye medications with antibiothics that relieved them of the red eyes just in time for my little, adorable niece to be ready to getting back to school.....

So I tought for myself..... a free Cuba will not only mean freedom of speech, freedom of the minds, freedom of enterprise, freedom of movement and travel, no, no, no..... we will also have to get our homeland free of third world diseases brought by disastrous leniencies of putting first the pampering of the foreigners to get their hard currencies and forgetting the needs of the down to earth modern Liborios (named Panfilo) of our days resulting in such easily avoidable diseases like the ones I mentioned before not to speak about the so called "polineuritis" (beriberi) of the dark times from the el periodo especial.

So I wish good luck and Godspeed to those easy-money-seeking capitalist wanting to sure betting their investments in a post castro Cuba but I will tell them one thing, it won't be easy.

Best regards, Glezbo.
