Cuban Cigar's - One More Of Obama's Legacy?

Thank you Obama! I have always wanted to try a Cuban Cigar Cheesy Huh Roll Eyes

If only you would have the American people at the center of what you're doing? Huh Angry

MI — Attention U.S. travelers going abroad: You now can bring home all the Cuban rum and cigars you want.


The Obama administration announced Friday a new round of executive actions designed to increase trade and travel with the communist island. And this is the one many Americans have been waiting for — no more restrictions on the island's famed rum and cigars.

Under the new rules, travelers can purchase unlimited quantities of Cuban rum and cigars in any country where they are sold so long as they are for personal consumption. Sorry American couch potatoes: You can't order Cuban rum and cigars online and have them shipped to your home.

The regulations issued by the U.S. departments of Commerce and Treasury will make it easier for U.S. companies to import Cuban-made pharmaceuticals, U.S. agricultural companies to sell their products to the island and Cubans to purchase U.S.-made goods online.

The changes follow a series of steps taken since President Obama and Cuban President Raúl Castro announced on Dec. 17, 2014, that the Cold War foes would normalize relations after more than a half century of enmity.

On Friday, Obama added to the regulatory changes with a presidential policy directive that outlines his Cuba strategy thus far and lays out the future course. It includes a call for Congress to rescind a 50-year-old economic embargo on the island, something lawmakers have been unwilling to do so long as the Castro regime suppresses political and other freedoms.

The goal of the new regulations and policy directive are to make Obama's Cuba policy "irreversible" by establishing so many relationships with Cuba that a future administration wanting to scale back those ties would face widespread opposition from U.S. businesses and citizens.

Would YOU buy a Cuban-made pharmaceutical? Maybe they should concentrate on stocking their own hospitals first.

A Cuban cigar can run $10 - $20 each. A Honduran or Guatemalan is much cheaper and I cannot tell the difference in flavor. I've quit buying the Cubans a couple of years ago, here in Central America

The Cuban cigars are not what they were in the Fifties before Fido an' his gang took over. When the commies won, the best tobacco growers an' cigar makers left an' took their seeds an' expertise with them. Then they set up in Honduras an' the Dominican Republic. That's why Cigars from those places are more highly regarded. The Cuba Cigars are jus' a name now an' will fade when the novelty wears off.

The only controls I want on my guns are the ones I operate by myself, such as safety, magazine release, bolt or slide, optics an' trigger. Any others are unnecessary.
