    6. I don't know, but it would help if we could legally trade with them.
    As it stands if a drug is developed in Cuba, we can't use it. How fucked up is that?

    10. Watch Michael Moore's Sicko.
    A lady firefighter was paying over $100 for an inhalor, due to lung damage from 9/11. When Moore took her to Cuba, she found Cuba sold the same inhalor for a nickel. Needless to say, she bought a bagful.

    DUmmies, if ya all think Cuba is so friggen great then get
    your asses down to Key West, buy a canvas raft, and wait for
    a cold front from up north. Then go into the Florida Straits
    and paddle south.

    Morons.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    So are cigars and classic American gas guzzlers.
    ... certain forms of ammunition have no legitimate sporting, recreational, or self-defense use and thus should be prohibited. Such action is long overdue.

    I use inhalers and while mine do not cost $100+ they do cost in the $30's. They used to cost around $5 but they had to redesign them to get rid of CFC-based inhalers because they were harmful to the ozone layer. The new "green" inhalers do not have a generic version so they cost more. I am sure that is why they are cheaper in Cuba. I bet Moore didnt know that he was helping to destroy the ozone. :D

    Same thing happened to my inhaler Rx. Damn thing doesn't work as good as my old one.

    I find it extremely ironic that my inhaler is helping to save the atmosphere that I can no longer breathe as easily.

    If they didn't cost a nickel in Cuba, nobody could buy them.. You have to price stuff to sell in the target market, morons... The price of everything is just about at what the market will bear..

    Ironic that I had to use an inhaler after being almost poisoned by a lot of second hand smoke when we were on vacation this spring. I can't compare the new green ones with the previous ones because I never had to use one before.

    It cost $35 with my copay. Those ones in Cuba for a nickel were probably long expired.

    Would you reallky want to take a med developed by Castro? :eek:

    What a worthless bitch! Goes to a developing world country and buys up a district's worth of inhalors. And these are the same cretins who think we are stealing Afghanistan's pipelines, or somesuch...............
