The Cuba everyone sees

Great piece at American Thinker on the reality that is Cuba today:

Interested in seeing Barack Obama's dreams for the U.S. in real time? Pack some toilet paper, Tylenol, and towels. Then hop a plane to Cuba. Just ninety miles off Florida's coast, Obama's ideas are alive and kicking.

In fact, visiting Cuba today may be more meaningful than ever before. Touring the country of 11 million lets you see everything the far left "knows" is right, just, and good for all of us.

    RealCuba posted this last weekand the article while well meaning has a few errors.
    Here is what I wrote Therealcuba (another GREAT blog btw).
    For what its worth the American Thinker article by Ms. Smith is a but inaccurate to the Castro’s favor. One of the errors is that Cubans earn $250 dollars a month. That’s overestimated by 10x or more. Best I know they make between $10-$15 per month. The picture she shows referring to the butchers Che and Fidel are actually of Fidel and Cienfuegos. She said that people vote for community officials and that is also incorrect. The party appoints the candidates and they run against no one but themselves.
    Just thought I would bring that to light.
