United States and Cuba have reached a deal to allow as many as 110 regular airline flights a day, allowing a surge of American travel to Cuba that could eventually flood the island with hundreds of thousands more U.S. visitors a year, officials said Thursday on the anniversary of detente between the foes.

    As soon as the Castros are dead Cuba will become a USA colony again.

    I can't wait to go.

    @1 Speaking nonsense again. Of course you have never been there. I have. Cuba will never be a US colony nor would the US want it to be, so you will never visit. Cuban can be grateful for that.

    Make the post above as another wrong prediction by yankeeboy.

    Elaine, I am barred from going to Cuba as you well know. Cuba used to be a USA colony, when it was widely successful and will become one again.

    The people are literally dying to have our way of life.

    BTW I am using the term colony as a euphemism as I am sure you are well aware. . What I mean is it will be run by USA corporations and extremely closely aligned like many of our pseudo-dependents.

    Do you ever go to any successful countries or are you just spreading continued misery wherever you go?

    I'd match up my prediction rate with your ranting any day sweetheart.

    @3 Changing your prediction now you know it makes you look even more stupid?

    When I arrived in Cuba they asked if there were any Americans onboard. When we replied no they responded with GOOD. You are right that the young people crave a more free and consumerist society but they don't want you there. I remember one Cuban put it so well. “The Americans think they will save us but we don't want them”.

    Trading with the U.S. and even having U.S. companies in Cuba will not make them a colony.

    What prediction did I change?

    Trading with the U.S. and even having U.S. companies in Cuba will not make them a colony.
    It does and it will.

    I didn't know BA flew to Cuba.

    Your problem with women spills out in every bitter post.

    WTF are you talking about? Where did I mention anything about women?

    Just because I think you're a revolting witch doesn't mean I think that about all women.
    Just you

    Progs are all the same, make believe global warming, er ah no climate change, war on women, war on minorities, war on gays, war on transgendered.. Sheesh grow up and have some dignity.

    @7 Changed again? You used to call me a liberal and now I am a 'Prog'? Is that because I taught you the difference when you claimed they were the same? You are such an ignorant man.

    You have a very real problem with women, it comes out in your posts all the time. Your words give you away.

    Glad to know I irritate you as that is my intention.

    I told you before the terms are interchangeable.
    You have never taught me anything. You're not smart enough.

    No problem with women for all you know I am one.
    I've never told anyone my gender.

    Dumb people are irritating.
    You're dumb so you're irritating.

    You have such a high opinion of yourself. When in reality I see you for the evil witch that you really are and you don't like it. That's why you continue to attack me.

    @12 Another thing you don't know?

    “Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

    A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you're not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.”

    You display all the qualities with your own words.

    Your speculation about me is just you projecting your problem with women.

    Oh thanks but you didn't really answer my question did you?

    Do you not think I have the ability to cut and paste as well as you?

    Now find the definition of dried up old hag and tell me which is worse...

    @15 Straight over your head…… whoosh.

    Your words betray your personality disorder.

    Your insults to me are just a projection of your problem with women.

    5 Eyes can try but we will not let things easy. We will pursue the interests of 5 Eyes wherever it are.

    Elaine, you've tested this madness on Chris. You obviously have a problem with successful men.
    I am tired of your nonsense.
    You are a dried up old hag with nothing to offer anyone.
    I feel very sorry for you because your whole life has been a waste.

    @18 I have no problem with successful men - though clearly you are a failure. I have a problem with you and the nasty things you say about the poor and vulnerable. You are a bigot with NPD.

    You know nothing about my life at all so stop projecting your own failure in your posts.

    And you know nothing of my life.
    I know enough about you to know you're a bitter old hag (feminist) with a chip on your shoulder.
    You also hate men.
    I also know your whole life has been a waste.

    @20 You are showing your lack of intelligence again. You don't know anything about my life other than I travel a lot. You have tried but can't even come close to my profession. You stumble around attempting to work out something from my private life and fail. (Not quite as creepy as ChrisR who devotes his time to seeking out pictures of me - and failing)

    You, however, tell us all a lot about your life. The bragging and fantasies are not the problem. If you want to pretend you are a successful business man it harms no one but yourself. It is your nasty comments that I have an issue with and pull you up on. You can't take the criticism and resort to projecting your hatred of women on to me.

    I don't hate men. I think you are a despicable man. That is aimed at you, not men per se.

    As I have explained to ChrisR, feminism is not an insult. All it means is equal rights and opportunities for women. Why does that scare you?

    I don't hate women. I think you are a despicable evil cow. That is aimed at you, not women per se.

    I have said many times I don't lie.

    If you choose not to believe me its your business.

    BTW I accepted the job offer today I was pleasantly surprised at the final offer
    Starting in Jan I will have +/-300 employees under me
    So believe what you will everything I say is true
    That's why you'll never catch me in a lie

    @23 I am so pleased you dislike me. If you liked me I would feel dirty as you are a despicable man.

    Good to know you are in employment, though why you feel the need to boast about it is questionable as successful men don't do that.

    I know plenty of successful people and believe me they all let you know one way or the other whether they are academic, in business or politicians they're all the same.

    For all the travel you claim you really are very insulated.

    I'm still thinking air hostess with a fat ass.
    I know that's when the trolling started...

    You really shouldn't blame others for your mistakes.

    Bitter party of one...
