It’s actually really sad. He’s currently lamenting moving over and talking about how he gets squeezed for every penny he has and is currently being forced into poverty and worked to the ground.
Right-Wingers will cite Cubans moving en-masse to America as proof of the failure of Socialism, but neglect the startling amount of Cubans who both regret it and end up moving back. I’ve had family members move over and immediately regret it. I had an uncle come over and yearn to to back to Cuba every day of his life. He ended up dying in agony as terminal cancer took him and he made $8 an hour which somehow wasn’t enough to ensure him medicine that would’ve given him at least the dignity to die relatively painlessly.
Another uncle of mine is gay, poor and confusingly Republican, but despite criticizing Cuba as often as he can, he constantly yearns to go back and spends half of his time in Cuba.
There are countless stories like this and that’s for a reason. There’s something to be said abo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban on CNBC on Monday compared the stock market's big run-up from its late March coronavirus low to the 1990s tech frenzy.
"In some respects it's different because of the Fed and the liquidity," Cuban said. "But on a bigger picture, it's so similar."
"Everybody is a genius in a bull market," the "Shark Tank" investor warned. "Don't get greedy."
Cuban, also owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, said his personal stock portfolio is still heavy in shares of Netflix and Amazon.
Props to Cuban for being vocal about where he stands. Truthfully, the current cultural and political instability in America could have been a great way for all leagues to brand themselves as socially responsible and move ahead. Most owners remain silent which is their choice and right, but Cuban loudly states what he believes in. The bot keeps removing this post if I don't talk enough, so I hope this paragraph is enough.

One of my favorite albums of all time came out on this day in 1995, and I know I speak for a lot of people here when I say that.
What are your favorite tracks and verses?
Where does this rank in Raekwon and Ghostface's discography and in the grand scheme of Wu Tang as a whole?
> Marc Malusis asked Cuban how stunned was he when he received the offer.
> “Very,” Cuban said with a laugh. “It happens in the NBA. It’s like the James Harden trade. Harden gets traded from OKC to the Rockets and I’m like, damn, why didn’t we even get that offered to us? We weren’t in the mix. Nobody was. It was one phone call and the Rockets said yes. [The Porzingis trade] was our one phone call.”
> “We already had those conversations before. GMs talk all the time,” Cuban said. “We’re willing to do this if you ever want to give him up … We used to get calls on Dirk [Nowitzki] ‘we’ll give you A,B,C,D,E and F,’ but we’re not trading Dirk ever. [They said], ‘Well, if you do.’ In this case, [the Knicks] changed their mind.”

From what I’ve found out, Castro let thousands of people leave Cuba by their own free will but just told them it was a one way trip. I am aware at one point Castro sent his prison populations as well, which is kind of funny and fucked up. I’m also aware some exiles are related to the Bay of Pigs?
Why would you want to leave as a Cuban? And why are Cubans so fucking angry today in Florida?
Please fill in all the other knowledge gaps I have or am missing out on. Thank you!
Edit: lots of good answers in this thread!
> "What they found out is I'd take some votes away from Donald Trump, particularly with independents. In a three-way between me, [Joe] Biden and Trump, I dominated the independent vote—I got like 77 percent percent of it and was able to take some votes away from Donald and some votes away from Biden. But in aggregate, I was only able to get up to 25 percent. From every which way, crosstab, you name it, I had it analyzed and scrutinized every which way, projected, and they could only see me getting up to 25 percent. That's why I didn't pursue it further."
Really upset by this one.
