    Too true. There are those world-winning cigars, of tobacco grown from Cuban seed, but now that Cuba's back in the marketplace . . . Poor Nicaragua, what does it have? Plenty of sunshine, lots of fresh water, a few active volcanoes, and a growing number of gringo tourists and expats, thanks to lovely Nicas. low prices, and relatively little crime.

    Ortega has always known which side of his bread is buttered, . . .
    Ortega is odd for a lefty dictator: he rails against those nasty yanquis in every speech - seemingly to maintain his socialist creds - yet Walmart continues building Palis, la Uniones & MaxiPalis. And the few, very rich Nica families, like Pellas, are free (nay, even protected by import duties) to capitalize here, seemingly as they please.

    While I was a working grunt, I paid little attention to what was happening here, to the Iran-Contra 'scandal', to the CIA's secret wars, &c. But Ortega's concession to Violeta Chamorro after the 1990 election caught my attention. That wasn't the sort of thing Latin American dictators did, especially after a successful revolution. Violeta sold the railroad, which still pisses off Nicas to recall today. And a series of tin-pot neocon presidents succeded her, robbing the poor of a greater & greater share of the GNP. Ortega and the Sandis, tho divided, made a pact with the last while he was in jail (for theft) and took back control of Nicaragua in 2006. They continue to dance with the rich devils, as any government that wants to survive must do, while straining, IMO largely thanks to la Chaya, to push some of the new wealth down to the poorest Nicas - a bit like trying to scale an active volcano.

    Those who would sanction Nicaragua today are the south Florida Cuban expats determined to get their pound of flesh from the dirty commies who bumped 'em out of paradise. They are (among) the most clever & powerful politicians in the USA (witness the election of 2000, and "dimpled chads", finally decided in the Supreme Court by party appointees). Ortega was trained by the Cuban commies - and thus forever tainted - but he's been doing pretty good of late with on-the-job training as a capitalist.

    Power is intoxicating, even if your power is over dirt poor Nicas. Like Jackie Gleason in The Honeymooners, "I'm the king, and you're nothin'!" "Well, that makes you king of nothin'!"

    And in Ortega's Congress...

    What a mess: making us come only to raise a hoof and say, "Yes, Commander." "Yes, Companion!"

    I followed the little bubble, and you're not going to make it to Chamuca's succession.

    I imagine that for that they took out the poll that says there are few poor people.
