Here we go again . . . Castro, Inc.’s clarion call to diaspora Cubans to help it stay afloat has been answered by 300 would-be investors.
Come on down, invest in us. Partner up. Enjoy our Castropalooza extravaganza. We’ll let you make some money, then, when you least expect it, we’ll stab you in the back and find some other sucker to take your place. Repeat, lather, rinse. . . . It’s such a profitable vicious cycle . . . and it keeps us in power.
Human rights? Did you say “derechos humanos”? Did you ask us about the 304 acts of repression we carried out last month? You’ve got to be kidding, right? No nos jodas con tal mierda. Don’t jerk us around with such crap.
