One thought on “Rations for Havana Residents (June 16-22)

  • The Castro regime should be ashamed that over fifty five years after the revolution tens of thousands of acres of good agricultural land is reverting to bush while citizens are receiving rotating rations. Why is Cuba importing chicken from Brazil, Mexico, Canada and the US? Why is Cuba not producing more chicken by utilising some of those fallow acres of good land to produce feed for chickens? Why does Cuba have to import canned tomatoes from Spain and the US when there are thousands of acres of land in Cuba available to produce the crop? Why is there a shortage of eggs? Why is there a massive shortage of coffee? Why did the government purchasing agents buy pickled brussel sprouts from Spain – a vegetable which Cubans do not know! Responsibility for the problems given above lies with the regime! These problems are not a consequence of the US embargo, they are a consequence of incompetence and mis-management of the regime. Socialismo has failed. Time to consider the people of Cuba and to put failed political policies in the garbage can.
