While more and more luxury hotels and apartheid resorts pop up in Castrogonia, the Cuban people face severe food shortages.
The main problem is the abysmally inefficient Castro regime, which has strangled the Cuban economy for six decades and brought food production to record lows, despite the fact that the island of Cuba has some of the richest soil on earth.
To a considerable extent, the economic collapse of the Cuban colony of Venenozuela is directly responsible for this current crisis.
And to a considerable extent, the parasitic relationship established between the Castro regime and its “Bolivarian” colony is responsible for Venenozuela’s current crisis.
It’s a vicious circle, out of which there is no apparent exit.
The Cuban vampire has sucked all the blood out of Venenozuela, and now there is no other host it can latch onto.
It has lost Brazil and Argentina, and Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Ecuador don’t have enough resources of their own.
And, since Castro, Inc. has not paid its creditors the money it owes, it is becoming increasingly difficult for it to buy anything on credit.
Meanwhile, as Cubans search desperately for food and other essential goods, the millions of tourists who flock to the island have access to all the food and drink and all the amenities that are far beyond reach for 99.99 percent of Cubans.
Long live Marxism-Leninism! Long live the Revolution! Sieg Heil!

The Castro regime continues to offer no solutions to the population in the face of a shortage of basic foods such as bread and eggs, which, as they say on the island, “estan perdidos” (are missing or vanished).
“There is no improvement and every day this situation gets worse,” Jose Espinosa told Radio Martí.
Iliana Hernandez, for her part, does not know if what is happening is comparable to the special period, but “somethins is very wrong with the food supply,” she said.
What hurts the most is the lack of bread, adds the blogger and communicator, resident in Havana. “They still do not sell the bread for free, the only bread that is being sold is the one that comes through the ration book, when the bread appears for free, which previously cost 5, they sell it for 15 pesos,” he explained.
For many Cubans what they are living through at this moment in Cuba is the beginning of another “special period”.
In Santa Clara, Espinoza, who works in the private sector, portrays the same situation. “There are people who have queued since previous days to be able to buy bread released.”
As for the bread that is distributed by the rationing book, Espinoza says that “it has such a terrible quality that you buy it in the morning and in the afternoon, sometimes it is already half green, that you can not eat”.
Hernandez thinks in a similar way. The standard bread “comes with the same bad quality as always” (…) and with that “you have to settle the population,” he said.
The situation of the egg is worse. The shortage is such that “it already seems an exotic dish here in Cuba,” said Espinoza.
Meanwhile, those that are sold “by the book”, at the rate of “10 per person”, are only distributed “once a month”, Hernández said.
Cubans face this food crisis while at the Iberostar Grand Packard hotel, in the Cuban capital, a luxury culinary event is organized, organized by Liz Cuesta, wife of the president Miguel Díaz-Canel, with great fanfare in the official press.
