    Re: Cuba to cut 500,000 gov't workers, reform salaries

    The Cuban agriculture system will never recover until farmers are allowed to sell their crops to anyone they wish. Raul tried to give out land and hardly anyone has taken it because they donít want to go through all the hassles of farming without the proper farm tools, to then be forced to sell the crops to the government at the their prices. Cuban farmers are very capable, as evidenced by all the great grow houses we have in Miami, but if there is no incentive to farm, they will keep working in one of those pretend government jobs. A well known saying among Cubans is: "we pretend to work and they pretend to pay us."

    Cuba is an excellent example of how a very successful nation in the western hemisphere was destroyed by socialism in the 20th century. There are so few positive things to say about communist dictatorships like Cuba, that leftists everywhere have no choice but to point out flaws in other countries to keep some of their self-respect.

    Why not dismiss the two main responsible of Cuba deplorable situation, the Castro brothers? It is now that the Castro brothers realize that their political opponents were right. Many in the 80 and 90 urge the Castro government to make deep economic reforms. They responded to them with repression, prison or exile. Do they realize now that Fidel Castro has always been an inept ruler? Give me a break.

    It looks that the fantasy island is leaking water on all sides, and the funny thing is how it has lasted for so long. The people, hostage of egocentric leaders, end up driving over the edge by those that command them. The fall of the island should serve to cut the fantasies of harmful leaderships on the rest of the world, and especially in Latin America. Revolution or death! The dictator shouts. The answer is served: death to the dictatorship.

    Among the villains are those who supported Fidel Castro, ignoring the truth and spreading his left wing propaganda. These ignorants SOB's know who they are.

    The system doesnít works; it is incompetent, unproductive, and inefficient. Castroís regime has always been a bloodsucking parasitic, first of the Russians, now of Chavezís Venezuela. Cuba is simply the longest dictatorship of the planet with a scandalous nepotism. The failures of the revolution, are not by chance, was programmed that the misery in Cuba, imposed by the Castro brothers, would be the way to stay in power for more than half century. But it seems that the economy is the enemy that is defeating the dictatorship despite the "blockade" of US, who supplied it with more than 80% of what they consume.

    The only way for the regime to incentive private business is to have access to capital. Who in their right mind is going to finance them if there is no guarantee that one will get repaid. The regime has defaulted and owns a staggering $68 to his creditors. The only way for the regime to collapse is to keep the sanctions in place. After that it will be possible to give the private businesses access to capital.

    Seen what Cuban Americans have done in Miami, there is optimism that the deprive Cuban people will be successful too in the running of businesses and creation of jobs and improvement of their daily lives.

    It took the Castro brothers only a few years to destroy the growing economy of the fifties. After 51 years in power the economy is in shambles. They will not be able to revive it in a near future even if the US Congress repeals the embargo, unless massive amount of foreign aid and credits are provided to the regime.

    Castroism deserves this ending of failure and the attention of the world while his regime implodes. The way his dictatorship is going to end is not with a bang, but with pink slip.
