Cuban cigars and rum can now be brought to America

Americas Now

U.S. President Barack Obama announced in January that American tourists can bring home $100 of rum and cigars from Cuba following the historic rapprochement between the two countries. The 17th Cigar Festival held in Havana was the first after the two countries started talks to normalize ties.

“It’s the first step in the right direction, but $100 means a handful of cigars, only a few. So we need Congress to lift the embargo and then we can treat each other as good neighbors,” said an American delegate in attendance.

    Those cigars are made in factories that were stolen from hard working people who now live in exile. Ask Don Pepin or the Fuente family what happened. The land the factories, homes and stores all belonged to people who were rightful owners, The Castro Mafia took it all and killed a bunch of innocents in the process, so think about that when you light a Cuban Cigar!

      Ah cry me a river…. so the commies and nazis also took land and raped and pillaged Poland, but we moved on. Stop living in the past.

    It’s funny that Obama will now be doing business with the same government that
    Tried to nuke us back in 1961. Go figure the democrats.
