squeeze of lemon AT MOST
Vinegar is in almost every condiment and/or dressing.
I find the squeeze of lemon by itself works just fine to cut the richness.
Exactly. Because of propaganda funded by Big Vinegar!
Here for the ketchup hate
Fuck ketchup. Just get some hot sauce.
Ketchup is fine on a burger accompanied by God’s ordained king of all mustards, yellow mustard. Other than that, I don’t really use it.
A cup of sugar mixed with a blended tomato ain’t for me ya know. Ketchup is tomato kool aid
So glad I missed this massacre of bad food takes.
This will be a must watch.
God damn, this is the last person I'd want on my side for good Latin American and Caribbean political takes.
See you at publix tomorrow, buddy.
Well made tarter sauce is an elite addition to certain seafood meals
and this goes for you heathens talking shit about yellow mustard too
Fuck, now I'm conflicted.
Ah Ana Navarro the contra death squad supporter that Ana Navarro. Never Trump moral high ground Republicans are a special breed.
I mean decades after the massacres and what was well known to be completely funded by Reagan she actively defended them. I'd probably always want to be on the other side of whatever opinions she has about countries outside the US.
Ok then lift the embargo and then we can just blame the Cuban government right? Weird how this guy isnt demanding that the embargo is lifted but this guy is willing to admit that we're playing a role in causing human suffering????
So now US politicians are outright admitting to purposely causing human suffering? Does he realize how bad that tweet looks????

Forgive me if already discussed but why leave a communist dictator to come vote for a wanna be dictator in America? Is this the Miami bubble combined with historical Republican voting?
Joe Biden somehow doesn't think exploitation is a key feature in capitalism so take his critiques with a grain of salt
This right here is the fundamental issue. It’s not that they want to come to America to vote republican, they just want to come to America to be free. Free to go to any supermarket in the country and buy a loaf of bread instead of the local supermarket that allows citizens but has no food while the tourist market is full.
oh also, a lot of the Cubans who are coming now have liberal views and usually vote Democrat.
this isn’t a political thing. They just want freedom from the tyranny of their government.
This isn't true
As for wanting freedom from the "Tyranny of government" America probably aint the right country for them if that's what they actually want. Reading this nonsense you'd think you weren't talking to a bunch of American's in this thread.
I don't know why people keep bringing up the authoritarian stuff, it's so disingenuous. It would take me 5 minutes to find a bunch of stuff of Americans being brutalized by the cops for no fucking reason. It literally doesn't matter, both governments are authoritarian folks
there was a thread just yesterday about a kid being locked up for 6 months as a murder suspect despite police having video of him at a club 100 miles away at the time of the shooting. he bonded out but it took almost 2 more years for the charges to be dropped.
Right wing Cuban's call that "Freedom from Government Tyranny"
Our "complicated" history with Cuba goes back to the Spanish-American war so let's stop acting like everything there was just peachy until Fidel came rolling around.
Nobody was calling it peachy. I’ve been explaining all thread long how decades of shit policy set the stage for Castro. That being said, despite the absolute cesspool of corruption, the Cuban economy was doing well in the years leading up to 1959 and the peso was nearly on par with the US dollar. Was there a wealth discrepancy? Absolutely, just as there is in every Latin American country which is a persistent vestige from colonial days. But relative to other Latin/Caribbean nations Cuba was strong economically.
wait we're really doing the "batista was doing good!" now?
I realllly hope that's not what El Tiburon is implying. Castro and the revolution didn't just come out of thin air.
nobody is saying that
hmm im just trying to make sure we understand that batista was a murderous oppressive dictator that never helped the cuban people
batistas brand of capitalism SUCKS and FAILED
Seems there may have been an implication in someone's post that Batista was good.... Just saying
and I'm not saying he wasn't shit, nor am I making a shitty what about the US govt comparison to drag the conversation away from the topic at hand.
tbh that post kinda read like the people saying "well yeah trump is an awful racist but my stonks do look pretty good and that should be considered"
You know you can tag me right?
Yeah but US government officials and Cuban Americans talking about Cuba's authoritarianism is disingenuous because those same people don't give a fuck about the same brutal shit happening to Americans here. It needs to be brought up because these same people are perfectly fine with BLM protestors being treated the same way Cuban protestors on the island are being treated. Why should any of us believe that they actually give a damn?
Especially the politicians who aren't even talking about removing the embargo to help give the Cuban economy some breathing room.
Why should we take any of these people seriously when they seem to not even take themselves serious or are simply using this shit for ideological reasons to get the US to do it's thing about invading in places they don't belong?
I think you all are doing the same shit we despise with Trump supporters. Opinions are fine and subject to discussion, but base them on actual facts. You can’t just make up a fact or ignore one you don’t like and then claim to have formed a good faith opinion.
Factually, the economy itself was doing well in relative terms. It had lots of problems inherent in it (especially too much capital in the hands of too few people/the US) and likely would have tanked at some point later just like it yanked in the 1920s when sugar prices bottomed out. How the fuck you jump to “OMFG EL TIBURON LOVES BATISTA AND IS SAYING HE’S GOOD!!!” is more of a you guys problem, not a me problem. There’s a reason that Batista was almost unanimously reviled and why Castro was welcomed with open arms by an overwhelming majority of the country, and that reason isn’t because Batista was a good guy.
Trump is the biggest fucking piece of shit on the planet and at least in the running for worst US President in history. That the stock market did okay for awhile before Covid is a fact, but I’m neither attributing that to him nor exonerating him from being the destructive, racist, ignorant pile of shit he is.
talk to Cuban Americans or Venezuelan Americans and assume they would be fine being similar to Panama . The entire region regardless of their system is having issues right now that COVID has made worse
This makes zero sense when they vote for a wanna be dictator that hates the color of their skin. Don't believe you meant this as bad as it sounds. There is not a country in this world where the citizens are not impacted by the government in one way, shape, or form.
bolded the relevant part, the point was that you do this same thing when people point out successes of the Castro government, so if you're going to point out decontextualized "successes" of the Batista regime you should expect similar treatment
what I'm saying is that the people don't care whether they live in a country with a conservative government or a liberal govt. They just want to be free. They strap themselves to rafts and float 90 miles for the chance at freedom. They don't give a shit if Obama or Trump is president. Freedom is all that matters.
