"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Makes you feel good to know that some out there love America. Three Cubans made it to shore today.

As the men reached the back yard, residents cheered. Some hugged the men, who were wearing only their swimsuits, and others pressed small American flags into their hands.

So why, if Chomsky and Zinn assure us, if America is so bad do we not see these scenes on the beaches of Cuba? I know this isn't a new revelation but, every time I see this happen it always sticks out just how rare that this sort of celebration occurs when refugees reach any other nation on Earth.

Two of the three have family in Florida.
