"Fifty years ago, freedom left Havana and it has never come back."
I just hope this same thing isn't said about US at the fifty year anniversary of the inauguration of Barack Obama.
But what on earth could the Left find better in Castro? The Cuba he took over was one of the most prosperous nations in the Western Hemisphere. Cubans were not boarding leaky boats to try to escape... Castro took a Cuba which was cosmopolitan and open to all of the world and made it a prison outpost of that most brutal of imperialist power, the Soviet Union.Joe "The feebleminded democrat": Oh yeah? What about Cuba's superior national health care system that Michael Moore told us about? Those Cubans in those so-called "leaky boats" you mentioned are probably just those selfish Cuban rich folks in their fancy yachts attempting to avoid paying their fair share. After all, when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody!
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!
