  • Prostitution ended in Cuba long ago. One of the great achievements of the revolution.

  • Advice well-taken.

  • I believe this to be one of our regular a Castro boot licker crowd. These little posts of his are meant to yank your chain. The worst thing you can do to him is ignore his peril comments.

  • If nothing else it serves to expose to what lengths Castro sycophants with go to promote their failed socialist agenda. Read the childishly ignorant comment that CErmle makes as an example.
