[QUOTE]It says something about a country when people are dying to leave, and they are forbidden to go. Castro is hated for a reason.
Posted by dgalehouse[/QUOTE]you nailed it! also, the OP is naive and is coming from an ivory tower idealistic position. the fact is we are all mostly EMOTIONAL despite all the objective moralistic nonsense we may spout.
the further removed and away from us something is, the easier it is for us to be "principled", flippant and LOGICAL about it. the closer it is, the less so!
the bottom line is that ozzie is a manager in MIAMI, the home of the greatest anti-castro population in the planet. common sensicallly, it means the marlins first of all should have done better homework (had similar comments about the dictator of his homeland mr. CHAVEZ) in vetting him and not employ someone at that level not on the same page regarding CASTRO or atleast not one passionate for him. just common sense here. if you jave to share your views in a mag, u go with the anti-castro one or shut up.
i happen to be black and lean towards the left-wing on most social issues (but right on economic ones). if i were hired to lead any organization in a tea party dominant community, i would either talk up my economic premises or simply refrain from any public social comments unless they were generically non-threatening to all sides. Social issues get into people's core areas. as a manager, there's nothing to be gained in antagonizing that area.
can you imagine being a manager in israel or brooklyn and saying how efficient and meticulous hitler was and how admirable it was that he was able to rise to power and put himself in position to do such acts in the first place? same with someone coaching in atlanta who slams martin luther king and says he's overrated and there shouldnt be a holiday on his behalf? yep you have thr right to say what you want, but others have the right to react as they want too and not put themselves in the position to ever hear your rants again! thats the part many choose to ignore. because you have a right doesnt mean you can exercise it without a filter without non-governmental consequences. it just means that no prosecutor can jail, arrest or persecute you for it. private citizens can react in any non-violent way they damnnn well choose to! you can yap, they can react!
btw comrades,that's y i'm a COMMUNIST-CONTRARIAN. i hate communism, i'm the OPPOSITE of it!
