Castro's comments were meant to stir up and continue the anger in our country...nothing more.

Congrats to him....looks like it's working!

Hmmm, this is coming from fox news, an extremely right-winged party trying to bring down Obama...

What does health care have to do with communism? I'm not seeing the link. Here in Canada we have health care and we're not communist, along with many other countries.

So what if Castro is proud of America? Shouldn't we strive for world peace? Everhobdy getting along complimenting eachothers actions instead of wars and prosecutions and so forth...

Whatever... Congratulations America on your Health Care... And I am not a communist.

-Jimmy-

I agree. I think he did this hoping to cause unrest.

We don't need unrest. People need to control themselves, ignore Castro, and focus that anger into votes in the Novemeber elections.

The majority of Americans are restless, but they also don't vote. Had they voted in the first place, we wouldn't be in this position.

When I was in Cuba, they suffered from the boycott by the USA. I also learned, that neither Mexico nor Canada supported that stupidity and the Europeans started to think about a change of their relations.

Indeed I was witness, how Canadian experts talked with Cuban representatives about the development of the internet in Cuba. And on tv in pubs I was forced to watch American wrestling games and a lot of commercials.

Now you come and say, the results of the boycott show, that Cuba is bad.

Hardliners are very funny, but cause a lot of bad in this world.

I'm sorry but the people came out in droves for this last election, many of which had never voted before.
Therein lies the problem, because many of inexperienced voters voted for inexperience.
That's why we are in this position.

The people are restless because they don't want to eat cake with their tea.

Isn't it vice versa and you don't want to drink your tea, if you don't get the cake you want?

I can understand people, who have a different opinion. But you also should be able to accept facts.

Fact is, Obama is president. Fact is, he is far away from communism.

(Indeed, I don't see much difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. They are both very right winged.)

Voter turn out was 56.8% in the 2008 elections.

Potential voters: 231,229,580
Actual voters: 132,618,580

I will give you it was the highest voter turnout since 1968.

Cuba has lower infant mortality rate than the USA (source cia.gov). Explain that. If you ask me healthcare for all is a lot better than healthcare just for the "elite".

Perhaps next you get free universities. Sounds horrible doesn't it? I mean after that everybody there would have more or less equal chances of success in life..

No one ever said anything bad about Cuba, part of the topic of this discussion deals with the affects caused by Castro on Cuba and its people. It's been a good 50 years since Fidel rose to power and his people still suffer from the results of his initial actions and decisions.

50 years, that's half a century.

Point being, will this country suffer the same fate in 50 years as a direct result of Obama's actions?

Btw, do you have any more pics of Cuba?



Cuba would be a lot better off without ridiculous sanctions.

I don't get all the fresh animus, the journey to fascism started a long time ago accelerating under gw bush.. obama is just the useful idiot of the hour pushing the agenda along.

Oh great, now the rest of Europe agrees with Castro too. The whole world is now communist. This is insane.



Europeans are gloating this week. The continent might be struggling with ballooning debts, a faltering euro and national strikes, but when the U.S. House voted in favor of President Barack Obama's health care bill Sunday night, March 21, Europeans seized the moment to thumb their noses at Americans and remind them that they've had pretty good health care for decades.

"On Sunday evening the richest, most powerful country in the world, the USA, finally entered the 20th century. Yes, not the 21st century, but the 20th,"
...

Europeans have long expressed dismay at the fact that millions of Americans have no health insurance, and tales of American suffering are always in the media.

Europeans are crazy, not only do the ask, they DEMAND this kind of dangerous and radical socialism


In Europe, voters demand that their governments offer good public services — including decent education and medical care — and regularly vote them out of office when they fail to deliver.

This is madness. When will Europeans understand that tax dollars are not meant for public services, they are best use for War and bailing out Banks.

Cuba also has a low rate of illiterates. Maybe some here also think, that the ability to write is a communist idea.


There must be a reason why the USA has such a big deficit in the budget...



You know what you should do is pack it up and move on down to Cuba. Because it is obvious you know nothing about it. Why do so many flee such a great place? Hmm makes you wonder.


This is about one thing with you and it is called a agenda you are pro-Obama. And this has blinded you to the facts. But facts do not matter when you have such great personal truth right. Have you ever seen my ATS name. I think it about says it.

My mother warned me about this. She remembers the Communist revolution in Cuba, she was there. Since Obamacare institutes price controls expect shortages of supplies and people as a result, after which in order to control service and equipement flow there will come the nationalization of manufacturing and raw materials, and then everything else.

Oooh free universities you say? free healthcare? That's so cool. You also get a shiny new set of matching steel bracelets like my grandfather did. You get a free vacation in El Morro(a political prison that used to be a Spanish fort) for 11 god damned years for speaking out against injustice by the Communist regime. You also get a free bullet if you persist.

You want everything for free because working for it is just sooooo horrible.
Cuba is a paradise-hellhole created by a Communist regime practicing socialist economics, and it is a TOTAL failure. Why on Earth would you want to be like Cuba?

To be honest Cuba will see a massive increase of prosperity once the Communist there die.


CUBA will again be the jewel of the Caribbean.

Pooh! I told my friends, Americans are intelligent. How can I explain this thread now?

*SIGH*

Can anyone really be that surprised? All the world's leaders are nuts. Castro is just more emboldened in the way he oppresses his people. He just comes right out and does/say it. Obama is more subtle, preferring the slowly-but-surely approach, but has become more emboldend lately. Don't be confused though, they're one in the same.

*Please remember this is my opinion, not meant to offend anyone*

That's not surprising but, on the contrary, it's not due to healthcare. It's probably due to several reasons, two of which are:

* Infants are probably not required to get immunized with the usual mandatory poisons we see in the states.

* Infants are exposed to their surroundings "as is", without having to worry whether their surroundings have been properly disinfected.

End result, a much stronger immune system.

Claire McCaskill Wants Castro to Shut Up About Obamacare



For some reason Claire McCaskill wants Fidel Castro to shut up about Obamacare.
If it is so good, why would she be concerned what Castro thinks?


Damn good point!

source


Update
This is not Auschwitz, this is the psychiatric hospital in Castro's Cuba



These photos were taken at Havana's psychiatric hospital, known as Mazorra, in early January of this year and taken out of the island by people who risked their lives to show the world what really is happening in Castro's Cuba.






These are several of the more than 40 patients who died of hypothermia at the hospital, when temperatures near freezing hit the area where Mazorra is located.These patients died because of the negligence of those in charge of this hospital, and after they died, hospital officials threw them on a table, one on top of the other, like bags of garbage at the local dumpster.

This is the fantastic healthcare that Cubans receive, according to Michael Moore and other useful idiots.
