I saw a news type show a few months back that talked about how big the Cuban smuggling business was. Unlike drug smuggling, once the refugees touch our soil we keep them. It even went as far showing a chase where the boat beached itself and the refugees jumped out and sat on the beach, basically, waiting for there free meal. Maybe we shoud feed them Manatee!

I'm sure someone knows more details.
It appears Key West is a popular tourist spot for rogue Cubans!!
I flew into and out of Key West this past Monday and that big azz bi-plane was still sitting there. That thing is huge.

Default Key West to Cuba Poker Run

I am going to the Miami Boat Show next weekend and then pulling the boat down to key west. I think I will go on over to Cuba on Wednesday and see old Castro. Anyone else want to do the Cuba Poker Run with me? I believe old Castro will be happy to see a good old American with a couple of hundred dollars for some high dollar gas.

If you are worried about a hole in our "security" just go to the Rio Grande any day of the week. They are sprinting across the border in large groups. Can you blame anybody for wanting to come here? After all, this is the greatest country on earth. And you might be surprised who was watching that boat come across, YOU try it once and see what happens.
