Look at how many public buses were available back then. Now, Cubans refer to buses as "aspirins," because you can only take one every 6 hours

  1. What hope the Cuban people had of freedom, will go down the tube when the
    Democrat Communist Party takes over in January with their new Communist
    President, Clinton.

  2. “Long live the Cuban National Army and down with Communism.”

    Here is an emendation to this perverted, facetious remark from Da Truf:

    Down with revolutionaries who promised respect and liberties for the citizens who were to reap the benefits. Down with those cretins who crowned themselves kings while stealing from the national coffers. Down with them!

  3. There is no dought in my mind that Cuba was a latin Paradise before the Castros took over. Now, with the Castros in power, Cuba is a genuine Hell whole. Communism destroy it’s people and the whole nation. Any body that favers Communism like the Black Politicians all over the world is as astronamically vile as the Communist leaders are. This type of policial thinking brings nothing but massive destruction to it’s people and there nation. Cuba, unfornately, is a perfect example of communism.
