Why would a person with a healthy mind buy Elian's hair? http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/eek.gif http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/confused.gif http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Now that is differently crossing the line. Selling all that stuff is totally wrong. You know half of the stuff is not even real.
Let the kid go. He's back with his father and that's the way it should be. Now let the government decide what they are going to do from him.

I like how all these Cuban protesters come out and show their "disapproval" with our American justice system, yet the voter turnout in this country has just been dropping election after election. This is not an attack on just Cubans, or any immigrant group (my parents are immigs).
I understand civil disobedience has its purpose when there is just no way to change the system. When a government gets overthrown in another country it's usually cuz people can't get food or water. Here people burn cars in the street because they don't agree with what the justice system had to rule. Hmm, I believe one of the complaints about Cuba is a lack of a fair court system. The pen is mightier than the sword.
These same people protesting Eleian's return would probably hesitate to report a neighbor for child abuse because it doesn't affect them. The Supreme Court has always preferred the rights of the biological parents over what may appear to better for a child. This is why abused children are sometimes return to dangerous households. Elian is simply another example of this. His life in Cuba (can't say for sure as I have never been to Cuba) would probably be better if he returned now than most of the children around the world.
Why don't Americans care that diarrhea kills about 1-5 million children around the world every year? The money spent on legal battling and flying people around for this case could have saved innumerable lives around the world. Do you guys know how much that military transport cost to bring his dad over here. It could have funded a rape clinical or homeless shelter for one month. Sometimes I wonder about this country...

I may be voicing an unpopular opinion here, but send the kid back. If he wants to come back to the US he or his folks can fill out the proper papers and wait like everyone else.
The media is starved for interesting news. Someone, quick, go start a war.
Enough already, the coverage is getting tiresome (listen to me... it was tiresome from the BEGINNING).
[thinks of starting a war with Canada] Nahhh. That wouldn't be much of a war for sure. http://www.geocities.com/sbp7777/files/wink2.gif And the freakin' news media wouldn't report on it anyways.
I really despise the news media. They make news up and sensationalize it instead of reporting it. That's bullcrap.
Yes colossus I also found it infuriating that some Cubans chose to attack America. The country that has taken them in, given them freedom and fought against Castro's Cuba for 4 decades. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/mad.gif These jabronis are going to have to realize their in America now, so their not just Cubans anymore. America has bent over backward helping them out. Now they need to show a little gratitude and simmer down. I can partly understand their anger over this matter. However they need to stop thinking totally of themselves and realize they can't get their way every single time.
As for Castro that damned dictator needs to be stuffed and mounted in a 2 bit museum as a freakshow artifact. He has driven that country into the ground during his terrible reign and caused massive misery. Hopefully he'll croak soon. I don't count on it though.
Finally the cost of treating diarrhea is quite cheap. America and other countries do help out organizations that fight this and other illnesses. If they didn't the number of deaths by diarrhea would be much larger. The problem is in many of these 3rd world countries the wrong people get the supplies and try to make money off it. That's another reason for being p*ssed off.
Maybe this thread would be better off in the rants and rave forum.

05-06-2000, 04:26 PM
Kick our ass Eh? What Eh? hehe, J/K.
Did you guys see that Pro Canada (also read Anti American) commercial for beer that's airing in Canada. I saw it on Peter Jennings evening news, and that kills me!!! http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...
Yeah I read about that Molson's beer ad. [unabashed American attitude] Looks like someone is jealous like they should be. [/unabashed American attitude] You can find that <A href="http://www.adcritic.com" target="_new"> ad here at adcritic along with many other ads like the various Wazzup ads and parodies.</a>

hahaha, this is the absolute best one

What was that? I went to the site but it doesn't exist anymore.
05-08-2000, 10:06 PM
Why would you start a war with Canada? Usually wars are started between countries because one country has something the other wants. What can Canada give the U.S., other than alot of beer and a bunch of resentful Quebecois? On second thought, go attack Quebec. We don't want it anyway :-)

I don't care about Elian, I just want to know why my taxes aren't going towards my Federal Grant money, and are ending up feeding that little puke of a six-year old. I say catapult him from Miami and whatever country cares enough to send out boats to pick him up keeps him. Thats my take on it.
05-08-2000, 11:56 PM
it was a peanut shaped like elian gonzalez...and damn did it look like him. guy says he was drinkin his beer and about to eat the peanut when he realized he was holding the elian nut in his hand. it was pretty damn funny...guess it ain't the same now that it's gone....but was damn funny
05-09-2000, 01:28 PM
Who cares about the damn kid? There are plenty of other immigrant children who gets deported but no one cares abou them. I'm interested in hearing what the cuban members in here have to say.... if we even got any...
05-19-2000, 12:04 AM
Send the kid back. You don't have to worry about him being treated bad in Cuba because he's now their national symbol(in someways).
05-21-2000, 05:50 PM
NO http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
