Quote Of The Day.

It is the 50th anniversary of Castro's seizing of power in Cuba, so naturally the Guardian is publishing lots of celebratory articles (mostly repeating the same lies and propaganda that the regime has been pumping out for 5 decades). In the comments to one such article a Guardianista addresses the inconvenient fact that Cubans are effectively imprsioned on the island:

Here's one aspect of this. Cubans have free education and medical care. The illiteracy rate is one of the lowest in the world. Also, many people have govt. related jobs.

Imagine if the States had the same thing. And then suddenly huge numbers of people who received this emigrated. How would the govt. react? Would they say so long? Would they make it hard to leave? Would they say, ungrateful ____. After all we did for you and THIS is how you thank us?

Freedom has many difficulties and democracy is not perfect. But we have never had to put a wall up to keep our people in.

I expect that these sort of people still call the Berlin Wall an "Anti-fascist protection barrier".
