Nassau, Bahama Islands (IP) The Prime Minister of the Bahamas has announced that its top scientists will attach large outboard motors to the Islands and move them east, away from the United States.
Prime Minister Conchy Joe Manley hopes that the United States won't be offended by this move. He says he still loves Americans in general but that the politics of his large neighbor to the west makes him and his people a little nervous.
The U.S. government warned Conchy Joe (as he likes to be called) that his government could really find itself in deep water if they make such a move. The state of Florida is worried that if the Bahamas are moved too far to the east that hurricanes will be more likely to hit the state.
Bahamian scientists are installing 870,000 horse power outboard engines to the port side of the larger islands and are using smaller motors on the smaller islands.
Cuba is watching the move closely and may follow suit if the plan works out. Cuba would like to be closer to South America so they can be near their good friend Senor Chavez. Cuba might connect itself to the South American coastline at a 90 degree angle and by doing so would become one of the world's largest peninsulas. One problem they would have to overcome involves finding a way to get through the Panama canal.
Raul Castro, who took over after Fidel's unannounced death on Christmas day of 2006, is afraid that as Cuba squeezes through the Panama Canal that most of its citizens would "jump ship" and scatter themselves north and south leaving the Island in desperate need of the manpower it requires to manufacture Cuban cigars and guava pastries.
