  • asombra: The New York Times is practically wetting itself over Castro, Inc.’s Ebola PR stunt. Same perverse shit, different day.

  • asombra: Myers looks like a snotty prick who tried to be too clever by half and was merely USED. Foolish tool.

  • asombra: Birnbaum looks like Andy Rooney possessed by the devil. Weiland looked seriously creepy, like some kind of pervert. And I love...

  • asombra: Only someone as vulgar and fraudulent as Fidel would wear such “boots” with a military costume. But maybe I misjudge...

  • asombra: We have a crisis of leadership because a blatantly bad choice was made by those who put Obama in office. TWICE. Lord have mercy.

Photo of the Day – The dark days of pre-Castro Cuba

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-3vqMiJVsGuw/Ut0P49lbbEI/AAAAAAAADA0/tvx0-Zgk6DI/s1600/smcuba.jpg

Sterling Moss races a Maserati in the 1957 Havana Grand Prix in pre-Castro Cuba.

These were the dark days in Cuba when there was a higher per-capita use of televisions and telephones than many Western European nations. The days when more Americans lived in Cuba than Cubans lived in the U.S. The days when the literacy rate in Cuba far surpassed the literacy rate in Spain. Yes, it was those dark, gloomy days of pre-Revolutionary Cuba when its citizens did not have nor needed a ration book for food and doctors and engineers did not prostitute themselves to foreign tourists in order to feed their children.

Thankfully, Fidel Castro and his revolution saved them all from those dark days.
