Now, in this case, it only concerns a movie...but if they're willing to lie about something as trivial as a movie, what else are they lying about?

Exactly

Which is what we are witnessing in some of these cables, with 1000s more to come

My parents are Cuban refugees...They thought Sicko was a comedy.

What Moore failed to tell his audience is that the services the lady in the movie received were only available to her because SHE'S FOREIGN. She can afford the care and is therefore not a burden on the State. If you noticed she DID pay. Sure it was 5 American cents per scrip, plus maybe 100 or 200 bucks for the visit overall, but they didn't show that part...No, Moore wanted you to believe it's all free and better than anything in America.


This story makes me


Case in point from the article:


Castro's government apparently went on to ban the film because, the leaked cable claims, it "knows the film is a myth and does not want to risk a popular backlash by showing to Cubans facilities that are clearly not available to the vast majority of them."


I've been saying this since that stupid "documentary" came out a few years ago.

sounds like youre angry coz your parents property got confiscated by the cuban communists, which by the way, i dont blame them for doing so and redistributing the wealth to people who need it more.

Sorry...I don't buy that concept, either. History has shown time and again that the redistribution of wealth on a Communist level just enriches a different elite...and it's generally the middle class that pays the freight.
I question instead, why China is America's BFF and Cuba is part of some axis of evil or rhombus of rotten, or something like that.
Shenanigans, is all.

Well, it's not as if the wealth hasn't been redistributed in the US


The top 1% now own 40% of the country's wealth...

A fact is a fact and a lie is a lie. How come noone is hardly talking about the uk and their health care? Also, why is socialism so bad. I suppose some places are worse than the rest and some better. The # question is, why don't people use the system that works. I'LL tell you why, GREED. Healthcare is one of them. SO, what about uk health care and how the system over there works. Well, A.T.S , pentagon listenning device. take me off air. The more of us you get rid of the more it is evident, whos side you are on. I thought U.S.A stood for something. Now prove it.

What's your address?

I'd like to come by and assess the value of your property and everything you own, I'd like to throw all of your relatives in prison and I'd like to redistribute everything they own to someone I believe "needs" it more.
