Victory is measured in gi Joe dolls and easy bake ovens. It was not old age that killed castro, it was nintendo.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

What does South Florida and Cuba have in common.

The answer in the spoiler
With rising sea levels South Florida (which is flat) will be underwater while plenty of Cuba (which has alot of flat regions) will also be underwater. Cuba will look like the Bahamas, many small islands. The mountainous Eastern part of Cuba will be the largest part.

The Moderators wouldn't crack down on people gloating if Trump lost, after all, because htye have no sense of impartiality.

We're not celebrating the death of Obama or anything that hasn't actually murdered tens and tens of thousands of people. It's like celebrating the death of Hitler or Pol Pot.

Actually they would have. They cracked down on gloating when Thatcher and Schafley both died. There are 3 right wing mods

It's certainly ironic. Poetic also that, as someone pointed out earlier, November 25th was also the day that the Castro brothers left for Cuba 60 years ago.

I really don't as Castro wasn't really that much Communist and "Black Friday" isn't that much celebrated in the Capitalist world.
