  •  Just Another Privilege Status Symbol (2+ / 0-)

    I've seen it in action. Cigar smoking Republicans and other rich Americans who could do something to end the embargo don't, and get theirs smuggled, precisely because their fetish is more exotic that way. They have no risk, and can afford $20 cigars, and get to feel like "rebels". While gloating about their privilege that the rest of us cannot taste.

    Plus, they're mostly dependent on just going along with whatever status quo has made them rich. That's "Conservativism" in a nutshell, at every turn.
