I keep hearing endlessly about how wonderful the education is in Cuba, especially compared to the time before Castro.
I've heard it again. Thank You very much.

Now, where are the results that you'd expect to see from this education? No matter how you slice it, dice it or shread it, Cuba is on the skids. What are they turning out for the world? Sugar cane? You need 4 yrs of college for that? What is Cuba known for? OK, cigars. But that doesn't have beans to do with higher education.

Besides, if these people have all this education, you'd expect to see them voting for things that would be good for them, like jobs, high tech jobs.
What we see in Cuba is not what you'd expect to see of a nation that purportedly has an educated citizentry.
You guys, always offering a fat 2 in. T-bone and turning up w/ a hot-dog.
Yep, you are dead on my fine pink friend, I do in fact listen to Rush; talent on loan from God.
Hey, I got an idea! I challenge all you Socialists/Commies/Greens etc to listen to him for 6 weeks. Got the balls?
Or do you all prefer to live in your dream world?

I hope this finds its way to the board. My posts keep disappearing. Can't understand why.
