At least nine heads of state from Latrine America and the Caribbean are in Castrogonia today, to participate in festivities that commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the rise of the Castro dynasty.
This phalanx of cretins includes: (Venezuela) Nicolás Maduro; (Ecuador), Rafael Correa; (Bolivia), Evo Morales, (Nicaragua), Daniel Ortega, and (Uruguay)José Mujica. All but one of these dangerous buffoons have been to Castrogonia previously, many times. to kiss Fidel’s foot and Raul’s derriere. The Uruguayan president is paying his very first visit, and kow-towed to the ailing Fidel yesterday.
The grandest fiesta of all will take place in the city of Santiago, the site of the disastrous attack on the Moncada barracks. No word on expenses.
But here is an item buried deeply at the back end of all news from the Castro Kingdom. Santiago is a disaster area. Devastated by Hurricane Sandy, the eastern Cuban city has received very little of the aid sent by foreigners. Conservative estimates place the number of damaged homes in Santiago that have yet to be repaired in the thousands, a sum total of forty-one percent of the entire city. Many of these wrecked dwellings lost their roofs to Hurricane Sandy last year, and the residents have been waiting for roof tiles and lumber since then.
So, Santiagueros, enjoy the fiesta today. It is being paid for with your roof tiles and beams, which, by the way, are available for purchase at grossly inflated prices in your state-run stores.
