    The regime change of the age of adulthood and criminal responsibility from 18 to 16 years, gave it the legal framework to send minors to the fire squad. The Cuban Archives had proved the execution by fired squad of 22 minors from 1959 to May 2004. How many more minors have been killed and will be killed by the sadistic Castroit tyrannical regime?

    Public telephones in Cuba (Silvia Corbelle)

    Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, 13 March 2015 – She dialed the number and waited. Nothing, not a ring, not even a busy signal. She tried again and then got a woman’s voice telling her to wait on the line. After several minutes she realized it was a scam, but she’d already lost half the value of her prepaid card. Finally, she was able to connect, but her mother’s voice sounded as if she was speaking under water and she was barely able to say she was fine and that she missed her. The line was cut and her call to Cuba ended.

    Among the many dramas that play out because of emigration, in the case of Cuba we have to add the complications of communicating with the Island. We have the most expensive rates in the world for those who want to communicate with us, only comparable to countries at war or nations collapsed by some conflict. Cuban exiles have spent billions over these more than fifty years to talk to their families in their native land, resources subtracted from the hard work of opening a path to a new reality.

    Prices of local and national and international long distance were raised January 1, 2014. According to data provided by the National Bureau of Statistics and Information, in 2012 the island had only 3,008,867 lines in operation, and 41% of the fixed telephone installs are obsolete.

    The Castroit regime has not even been able to double the capacity Cuba had in 1959, when there were eight landlines for every hundred residents and it ranked 14th in the world in terms of telephone coverage. Only 5% of Cubans has unrestricted access to the internet. Even Haiti has been able to extended mobile service close to 85% of the population in a very short period of time.

    Telecom is no longer part of the ETECSA partnership, it is under the management of GAE, a business arm of the MINIT. ETECSA has become a military organization. The main reason for slowing the increase in capacity of the private phone service is the monitoring capabilities of the MINIT’ surveillance system, known as K1 and K2, which required a 100% surveillance capability.

    From “White Udder” to the seven-legged bull
    https://generacionyen.wordpress.com/...yoani-sanchez/

    Posted by Yoani Sanchez on May 15, 2015


    Illustration of a cow. (14ymedio)

    Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, Havana, 5 May 2015 – For a long time the extraordinary, the unusual, was our hope. On this Island which must have been Atlantis, the reincarnation of Alexander the Great was born and there lived a cow who gave the most quarts of milk in the history of humanity. Like all childish people we needed to feel that nobody surpassed us and that the ordinary rested far from our borders. White Udder, the cow that still owns the Guinness World Record, was a sacrificial victim on the altar of this national and political vanity. Gone are the times of those exaggerated ranching achievements, now we can only crow about our anomalies.

    Muñeco is a bull with seven legs. The local press just narrated his story, a wild yearling born from two commercial zebu breed cattle, and ultimately adopted by the cattle rancher Diego Vera Hernandez in the Trinidad area. What distinguishes this exemplar from so many others that die of hunger and thirst in the Cuban countryside is that springing from its back, near the shoulder hump, are three additional legs and one testicle. Its anatomy includes everything the official rhetoric needs: on the one hand the inconceivable, on the other, this piece of virility that should not be lacking in anyone or anything that wants to brag about being made in Cuba.

    Gone are the times of those exaggerated ranching achievements, now we can only crow about our anomalies.

    Muñeco’s three legs have saved him from the illegal slaughter to which so many of his peers succumb due to the needs and poor livestock management displayed by the current system. That piece of another bull hanging from his back has freed him from the middle-of-the-night butcher’s knife because a clever farmer realizes that he has before his eyes a fair animal, a circus creature, to show off to journalists at the agricultural fairs. But there is not much difference from this pet with mischievous genes and that cow that represented all our hopes of seeing milk run in the streets and factories drowning in cheese and yogurt.

    White Udder died from the excesses of a leader who needed results, but Muñeco has lived for the pride of this nation burdened by its own malformations.
    In a speech on June 17, 1968, Fidel Castro said: “And daily milk production ought to increase 4 million liters more a year. In other words, if we attain 4 million in 1970, we will attain 8 million in 1971; 12 million in 1972. The rate will increase until we reach a production of 30 million liters of milk a day in 1975!”

    As early as 1962, when the law establishing the ration booklet was passed, milk was rationed to one liter only for children up to 7 years old and adults with special diet. The production of milk in 1958 was 784 million liters per year with a consumption of 119 liters per capita. By 2011 the production has declined to 582 million liters with a consumption of only 52 liters per capita, a 56% declined. Unbelievable! Another among many of the industries obliterated by the Castroit regime.

    Re: Cuba’s bloggers are as sharp abroad as at home

    In a speech on January 30, 1969, Fidel Castro said: “Of course, our traditional cattle are Zebu, an animal which is resistant to heat and other adverse tropical conditions. In other words, it is an animal which is quite resistant but does not produce milk. We need Holstein cows as foundation stock to develop some new cattle breeds and above all to produce hybrids of dairy cattle and Zebu cattle....
    Suffice it to say that in 1975 Havana Province will have 9,500 caballerias producing milk.
    This gives you an idea of our country's possibilities....
    At the present time, Havana Province has 60,000 Zebu cattle which have arrived in the last few months and it will have some 250,000 by year's end....

    We should have some 600,000 dairy cows and the province will achieve something else, something that seemed difficult some time ago, in the future it will be self-sufficient in meats.”


    The results of the artificial insemination of Holstein cattle with Cebu to develop the new breed of cattle F-1, which would have the milk production of the Holstein and the resistance of the Cebu was a completed failure.

    The progressive deterioration of the cattle stock, which from 5.9 million head of cattle and a population of 6.6 million in 1958 equivalent to 0.9 heads of cattle per capita, fourth in the world, has been reduced to 4.06 head of cattle with a population of 11.2 million in 201, equivalent to 0.36 heads of cattle per capita, due to the absurd dairy cattle project of the Castroit regime.

    Carnival Cruise Lines, A Paradigm of Our Times

    Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, Havana, 9 July 2015 – There are several ways to react when faced with another person’s affluence. One of them is the one taught to us by the Castro regime from the time we were little, and that is based on anger and stigmatizing the prosperous. A Robin Hood-like intransigence, the point of which is to snatch from the other person the “excess” or whatever he “has too much of.” This animosity toward anyone who makes progress, accumulates property, or enjoys certain material comforts, has ended up becoming an inseparable component of our idiosyncrasy, although the times seem to be changing.

    “I am never going to go on a cruise, but the more they come… the more we gain,” a retired man said yesterday, chewing tobacco and wearing a shirt so worn out his skin showed through. The official news just announced that the US company Carnival Cruise Lines received authorization from Washington to travel to Cuba, and the gentleman was expressing his own opinion about the luxuries enjoyed by others. This symbol of a capitalism of pleasures, fun and wastefulness is about to dock in Havana and it is noteworthy that officialdom will receive it not with shouts or slogans, but rather will welcome it.
    Click liink above for full article.
    In January 5, 2011, a British cruise ship arrived in Havana carrying 1,500 passengers and the regime rolled out the red carpet for it. In 2005, the cruise ships practically stopped going to Havana after Fidel Castro complained that cruise ships were “floating hotels, floating restaurants, floating theaters, floating diversions that visit countries to leave their trash, their empty cans and papers for a few miserable cents.” He proceeded to cancel the contract with the Italian company running the island’s cruise terminals. In 2005, the island had over 100,000 cruise visitors, and in 2006 only 10,000.

    Now Raul Castro welcome cruise ships from the U.S. to leave their trash in the island “for a few miserable cents.” The regime that is cash strapped, look the other way, it do not mind the trash bring by the almighty dollar. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    The Castroit regime draconian laws, don’t allow Cubans to board any vessel. The regime, in violation of maritime international laws, don’t allow doesn’t matter where they reside, from entering the island through seaports. The regime Naval Command center says that “No Cuban is authorized to navigate in Cuba. The only exception are those married to citizens of another country, who must request a permit beforehand.”

    Re: Cuba’s bloggers are as sharp abroad as at home

    The Castroit regime survive because of the subsidies from the Soviet Union and Venezuela. Now that the Venezuela subsidies had been cut in half, the Obama administration is throwing it a lifeline.

    Carnival Corp. will be operating the cruises under Carnival's new “fathom” brand, which is dedicated to “social impact travel.” Progressives will be lining up for these “social impact” cruises at $3,000 per person for a seven day cruise. They would be watching the Cuban people in their cages in the island of Dr. Castro, as they were monkeys in a zoo.
