¡SocialismoCapitalismo o muerte – venceremos! (Updated)

In the voice of Dr. Evil: “Nine Hundred Million Dollars!”


Some embargo, eh?

Update: Val notes: Good friend Bill Ardolino has a great photo up depicting the total hypocrisy of fidel castro and notes:

Apparently, Communism pays:

Cuban President Fidel Castro was furious when Forbes magazine estimated his fortune at $550 million last year. This year, the magazine upped its estimate of the communist leader’s wealth to a cool $900 million.

If you’re willing to step over plenty of cold bodies and broken spirits to collect your paycheck, that is.

  1. Mi hermano, te la comistes! I think someone told me once about a famous 15 hour speech he gave that went something like this:

    The details of my life are quite inconsequential… very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we’d make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum… it’s breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

  2. What’s with Yahoo repeatedly referring to him as “President” Castro? I mean, even the Forbes list is titled “Kings, Queens, and DICTATORS.”

  3. Boy! $900-mil even after trashing the country! Think how much more he might have extracted if he’d been content to just be another corrupt, average Latin dictator, allowing the “little people” to share crumbs from the table, and not driving out some of the best and brightest who coulda made him even more money. But then, he wouldn’t be kaSStro, AKA “little king Sadim” – that’s Midas backwards because, unlike Midas, everything he touches turns to shit – or blood.

  4. He’s not only a thief in grand scale, he’s also a liar and a hypocrite.
    One small consolation is that he won’t get the time and health to spend his ill-gotten gains.
    I wonder if the ENCASA folks have an opinion about this subject… anybody think they’ll publish another open letter about it?

  5. Que asco! Not even that kind of money can change that face….. viejo feo, cagalitroso, y lunatico.

  6. El Verdugo has doubled his fortune in a year in large part to reselling Mini-Me’s (Chavez) petroleum subsidies. He won’t be around long enough to spend it all.

  7. Using the same logic as forbes, would Bush own the white house, the pent’gon, the statue of liberty, the lincoln memorial, etc. Would the queen of england, not popularly elected, own her palace, and all the other castles throughout the country?
