No matter how lefty one can be these days, its just really hard to justify the crusty dictatorship of Cuba...but wait...here is a head scratching article with these jim dandy quotes:
"Whether the blame lies with America's 60 year old trade embargo or just bad government, the fact is that for decades the people of Cuba have had to learn how to cope with limited resources. The current economic situation is so bad that even essential items such as soap and toothpaste have been erased from the already meagre ration books."
IT'S THE CASTRO DICTATORSHIP COMEMIERDAS!
NO wait their is more:
"When you (hopefully) arrive at your destination in one piece and alight onto the pavement uttering your prayers and thanks to the almighty, only then should you remind yourself that with brake fluid almost impossible to find, your average motor vehicle relies on washing up liquid mixed with sugar to stop you in the event of an emergency.
It's all too easy for people to criticise these ancient, decrepit, polluting vehicles. In an ideal world every Cuban would be driving electric cars, complete with airbags, catalytic converters and door handles that work, but like many other developing and emerging countries they have to make do with very little.
Recycling is everywhere in Cuba. Born out of necessity and ensuring that very little goes to waste; a humbling and salutary lesson for us all.
Viva la Revolucion! Viva Recycling!"
NO, VIVA CUBA LIBRE, I GUESS TO THIS WRITER RECYCLYING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FREEDOM!
