    If that isn't damning the Cuban economy with faint praise the what is? :rofl:

    IIRC one thing those ^^^ three countries share in common with Cuba is a population that wants to leave their respective paradises, frequently in life risking manners.

    What do those three countries have in common? CORRUPTION!

    Their inability to do well has NOTHING to do with capitalism.

    You want to see REAL corruption you should go to a communist state and see how things REALLY get done...

    The hypocrisy of Strawberry Reich socialists is hard to grasp. While Jack Nicholson, Danny Glover, Oliver Stone, american lockpicker et al seem to love kissing Fidel's posterior it is damn near impossible to find any of them that can stand being in Cuba for more than a brief visit. Our own american lockpicker seems to lack the courage to even go that far. :upeyes:

    Edit: I don't find the fact that Strawberry Reich socialists are hypocrites hard to grasp. It is their aggressive stupidity that confounds me.

    Here is a link for you to use to visit paradise legally american lockpicker. http://legalcubatravel.com/ Pay for your own trip. If you really believe that it is worth it you will find a way. The military paid for me to be in Spain and Greece. I paid my own way to Morocco, New Zealand and the UK.

    I strongly suspect that the people running that site will pencil whip the paper work that you need. Otherwise you can go to Mexico and get a flight from there, the Cubans will not stamp your passport - they need the money.

    I have no problem donating to the cause. We will need to draw up a contract detailing what the penalty will be if you return though.

    I will start the pledging at $100 Small price to pay for raising the average IQ in the US.

    Yeah, "Cuber" is doing great. 500,000 state employees just got fired and are now left to find employment in the non-existent private economy.:upeyes:

    Another 6 years of Obama and the Democrats and we could be just like Cuba.

    Liberal idiots are hilarious. Keep drinking that Michael Moore kool aid.:rofl:

    Since Cuba is a paradise, and I am footing the bill to get you there, you have to STAY. If you return, there must be a penalty.

    I'm not sure if you missed it, Lockpicker, or if you're deliberately ignoring it...

    But if Cuba is doing so great and America is doing so badly, why aren't Floridians fleeing America by raft, inner tube, and rowboat, to go live in Cuba? Why is it the other way around? Why is there a Little Havanna in Florida, but not a Little Miami in Cuba, where all the American immigrants have set up shop to go live in Cuba? The 2000 census lists 1.2 million "Cuban-Americans" living in the US, do you think there are 1.2 million "American-Cubans" living in Fidel's island paradise?

    Oops! We've got a ringer here folks. I just realized he's not from these parts.

    Where are you originally from [Pseudo] american lockpicker? Canada? UK? Maybe you're just Euro-trash.

    Steeped in socialism and brainwashed like all the other idiots who wouldn't know a real free market system if it was sitting on his face.:rofl:

    Just another loser who can't make it on his own. He needs a big daddy government to tell him what to do and when to do it.

    What happened? Get tossed out of your own country or did you just make a wrong turn on your way to Cuba?

    Not to derail this thread from the interesting tangent it's taken, but I think this is a much better example of how much better the capitalist system is. Milton Friedman was probably one of the greatest economic minds that ever existed.
