    Literally every report on the economy talks about how the stock market is a measure of the economy.

    I’m watching conversations about the DC police being “defunded” because they reduced their budget from about $565M to $550M. It’s hilariously interesting.

    Its one marker but it doesnt explain the whole story. Especially when the major complaint from the left is income inequality not economic growth.

    Oh i see youre being sarcastic.

    Were on pace for 6% growth this year.

    Itll really look good for midterms if the economy keeps growing like this and with things like the tax credits and the GOP struggling to hitch themselves to a working narrative.

    It’s really funny to hear Republicans like Joni Ernst is complaining that the reconciliation bill will be “tax and spend”. Yes ma’am…those are the two things that governments all across the country do…

    Biden practically acted quicker in response to Cubans protesting than any American President has acted in response to American protestors in my lifetime . And he reacted by adding more sanctions as opposed to what he campaigned on.

    And, as always, it's hard to imagine much of the world not rolling their eyes when our justification for adding more sanctions is because of Cuba's "repression of protests". Deranged hypocrisy. Let's just ignore all the violent repression of American protesters that happens all the time here. Doesn't help that essentially the entirety of the American mainstream media just gleefully runs with the narrative too.

    Cuba has two of the 5 or 6 best vaccines in the world. They don't even have enough syringes to administer it in their own country...in large part because of us. It's indefensible. Cuba is no threat to us and their domestic affairs are none of our business.

    Definitely an instance of "nothing will fundamentally change". Obama was better re: Cuba than Biden has been.

    The more and more you go down your leftist rabbit hole, the more you sound like a Trump supporter. Just whataboutism.

    The reason he put sanctions on these specific entities is because they were stifling the protesters in Cuba.

    The ultimate hypocrisy, is you sitting here complaining about your government, being completely oblivious to other countries that aren't able to do the same thing without disappearing forever.

    Meanwhile Biden is trying to work with the private sector in Cuba so their citizens could have access to high speed internet.

    When Obama agreed to soften sanctions before, it was with the idea in mind that they would allow their citizens more civil liberties.

    The embargo should be lifted eventually. But not while the Cuban government is eliminating protesters across their country.

    I just hate that all these things are just fodder to you. You have no interest in these situations till it can be used as dirt on Biden. And every time you speak on foreign policy it makes me ****ing cringe.

    Why can't Cuba just do what America tells them to do? If they had let American businessmen continue to rape them back in the fifties instead of following commie Fidel they wouldn't be in this mess.

    There are things that are obvious solutions that for whatever reason in our politics (and country as a whole) are not the preferred policy. In large part due to our irrational fear of communism and socialism, any policy that is hard on Cuba for a policy they had 70 or 80 years ago is politically acceptable.

    It's the same thing with marijuana. The path is obviously for legalization and it's only a matter of time. But we still see no advantage on the federal level. For some reason, it is politically risky to move in that direction on the federal level and thus there is no real push to make what is going to be the obvious call and pass legislation to legalize.

    What does this have to do with what's happening now?

    Is this gonna be another one of those things, where everything America did in the last 70 years is directly responsible for their totalitarian and human rights government today?

    a country that lied its pubic into invading a country and our history with other counties and we are the ones to teach them what is right and wrong? Please, quit this belief our government is thinking of Cuba's people's well-being. We fell for that when they told us we were freeing Iraqis.

    Well, anyway, Cuba would do well to accept our advice or more sanctions will come their way. All they have to do is look at Iraq and Iran to see where that road will go. We have been messing with Iran just as long as we have been messing with Cuba.

    Please stay out of Cuba. It's one of the last sanctuaries for us Canadians and the rest of the world to vacation and relax without the plague of America and Americans.

    Yeah, isn’t it funny how things done in the past have so little bearing on how things are today?

    This whole issue is a paper tiger. The fact is that Biden could not care less about the specific sanctions — he knows how hollow they are. He is simply doing what he and his handlers believe will best serve their political strategy. Nothing wrong with that, by the way. It’s how the game is played.

    Oh, no. You know Americans will have the last said on Cuba. And please quit describing Cuba as a resort country when it goes against our propaganda of them being an evil, human rights-abusing country.

    Like that "plague of America and Americans".

    The world doesn't have sanctions on Cuba. They have options, on of the big problems is that they don't have money to buy what they need.

    That said I want the US to dramatically reduce their global policing. How about we cut the military budget by 80% and quadruple our contribution to the UN so they can take up the world policing job?
