Cuba: Castro And Ricemakers

Funny AP picture here.

Looks like the bearded one, in the middle of a great national drive to modernize Cuba's kitchen appliances, promised electric rice makers at a discounted price of around 6 bucks to the entire Cuban population in one of his blabathons. Nuevo Herald
article here.

But Fidel has been taught a lesson in Capitalism, since the Chinese manufacturers have demanded letters of credit, and in their absence have been slow in delivering the 3 million unit order. A first installment of 250,000 delivered to the Island, was held in a Habana warehouse, due to the vendors insistence on receiving a letter of credit before releasing them. To make matters worse, those 250,000 were delivered to mostly remote provinces, and people in La Havana still eagerly await their pressure cookers.

So now Cuban appartchiks are desperately soliciting quotes from potential suppliers closer to the Island - even in the U.S.

One Cuban housewife, quoted in the Herald, said "not even in a painting" had she seen the appliance, and thought the whole thing "a myth".

troglodita,
You can take shots at Castro and Chavez and all those who scare you all you want. But what are you really doing or what have you ever done in your life to help anyone or to enrich the opportunites of those who need help? You make fun of Castro, well it's easy to make fun of the old fart, he is basically living under the skirt of the empre next to him but you know what? he had the balls to fight back and you know what? he outlived all of your masters (the ones you want to look like)
You concentrate on ricemakers because you don't have the capacity to see other options or to point out real issues. Your logic is not only is flawed, but it is cowardly. You hide behind your deep ignorance and you deny it. You are an ignorant troglodite sitting on a fake plastic throne that makes you feel you are someone, but you are not.

You are the reason why the 3rd world exist. people like you with your inferiority complex are the ones with the biggest mouths and no substance.

You are the 3rd world, but it's funny because not only you think you are part of the 1st, but you also think you are white. LOL

JEJE, this bolinica is also a racist. I'm watching his shit and its like watching an accident on the freeway.

You suck dude.

Boli-Nica said...

Wow, both of you are running neck and neck in the "most ignorant" competition.


Commypoo needs lessons in just about anything, seems like he barely got past that whole "toilet training thing".

Puta, es que llegaste tarde a la reparticion de cerebros.

You guys make me laugh at how pathetic you are, can't even get past the basic point that collectivism simply doesn't work. Yet you sit there and worship all these morons like Fidel and Chavez, thinking that they will "just find that third way".

Pathetic creatures, the world is flat too. Get past the hate, and wake the fuck up.

commyBOO! said...

don't get so mad boli-stupido, we're just pointing out the obvious, you make it too easy for us to show how inept you are and what huge inferiority complex runs your pathetic little life. The funny thing is that you claim to have an education!!! that's just so funny!

you have no education boli-nica, you are a retard, learn how to write English and Spanish too while you are at it.. LOL

You mix the two languages because your ignorance is so real that you simply can't formulate solid thoughts, just insults and rants, just like your idols, anne coulter and rush limbaugh.

You are lame and you know it, it must be hard growing up knowing you're less, it must be hard when to be picked on you in school, simply because you were not white like the other kids, it also must be hard to have been molested as a kid, the way your reactions are, it relaly looks like the source of your anger and contempt for anything that is "different"

In the movie "American Beauty" you are the marine father, you fit the role perfectly... you should see the movie.. LOL...

Castro!! Chavez!! BOOOOO!!! LOL..

LMAO, you truly are perfect...perfectly ignorant.

Dumbass, what part of "grew up" do you not understand?

I did elementary and high school outside the U.S.
YOU were the one who did not get picked for kickball.

Anger and contempt at "different" things. Geez, how many countries have you lived in? Two, Bolivia and the U.S.
I actually lived for years under the Sandinistas and I've been in Cuba, I've seen the disasters up close and personal.
You on the other hand, don't even know what your local city council does.

Dude, this guy is hilarious, he must have been kicked out of Cuba like a dog, no wonder he hates Castro, no wonder he's terrified. It's understandable.

But you know what dude? that deosn't mean your heartthrobs Bush, Rumsfeld and Cheney are right.

Learn how to count, learn hwo to read, learn how to write, you come across worse than what commyboo describes.

JEJE, you must have been molested too..

LOL,


Pair of brainless haters.

While Lenin normally described fellow travellers as "useful idiots" you two geniuses clearly are "useless idiots".

Ooowww. I am so scared of globalization!!!!!

I'll bet both of you never worked a day in the private sector, except taking my order for fries.

Everything I said so far gets confirmed by this statement.

bolinica,

you are the perfect idiot. :-)

commyboo,
dude, you nail it in the head, this poor bastard is mad because he feels like shit. He knows he's the lowest class and he hates it.

LOL.

Boli-Nica said...

The whole neo-luddite hard-left doesn't realize how frickin funny they are. Whether its Chavez starting a TV network, Ortega running for president after losing four times, or Marcos like Colonel Kurtz going crazy in the jungle.

And the clown king of them all is Fidel. Watching him desperately trying to buy rice cookers, and the Chinese not budging unless they get paid is pure comedy, and irony at its best.

Grandiose schemers who are arrogant enough to think they are going to remake societies and change human nature are the silliest of all rulers. They believe that all that matters is "good intentions" and having the willpower to effect change. At best, they do some really silly things, the usual case is they end up as tyrants like Fidel.

Anyone who believes these fools is a fool themselves.

commyBOO! said...

no caveman, you are the fool who bought into the reagan crap, you are the fool who is afraid of progress, you are the defender of the status quo because you are part of the fearful tribe, the bunch of fools who rape the world with their polluted and obtuse minds, you are part of the bunch who are truly low but feel high, you are the fool who fights desperately to keep the status quo, because you are deeply afraid to be kicked out like dog again. remember cuba, rat?
You are a cartoon character caveman, you make me laugh.. LOL

Boli-Nica said...

no caveman, you are the fool who is afraid of progress,

PROGRESS???? You all are hilarious.

You guys are luddites, afraid of technology, afraid of the market and globalization.

commyBOO! said...

You buy into the "technology" sales pitch of the corporate war monguers that are producing the images you get turned on by, you know, the ones you posted earlier?

Your mind is so simple, you can't even draw a line between the images you just posted and the stupidity of your love for these neo-cons, you are at least confused, at worse, you are a minion with a huge inferiority complex that pushes you to follow these neocon dinosaurs.

By "progress" I mean being able to contemplate for longer than a second that there is an alternative beyond your resource ravaging neo-con agenda, there's a an alternative to your corporate world raping mentality... but you would not get that either. You fool.

You're so pathetic you are comical..
