We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"I wonder whether they can read Maggie's in Cuba."
Well, it depends on whether you dare to print some of the most vile, despicable words in the English language:
Oh, you know the list. A site search for "porn" yields 34 hits, most of them being the word "pornography" in quotes, not articles. BD posted an article with a header that said "P*ornography", but then used "porn" right below it, and that's the buzzword, as evidenced by the way sites like Fark and Boingboing use "pr0n" and variations thereof.
I've also seen a number of sites spell God as "G-d", so they're all obviously trying to stay off of somebody's list, although I couldn't tell ya who.
But as far as Cuba goes, if anything blocks you, it'll be your 235 uses of the extremely dangerous word, "democracy." Pretty ballsy of you guys, I have to admit, to put yourselves out there like that. That's the ultra-buzzword in the Chinese blockade, and you have to figure the friendly folks over at Google sold Cuba the same software.
(Or, more likely, Venezuela licensed their version to Cuba and Google got a kickback)
Exit question: With all that oil discovered in the Falklands and Britain's navy being reduced to three rowboats and a rubber dingy, why doesn't Argentina take them back? Maybe make a little deal with Chavez for some "protection" in the best mobster tradition?
