ARTICLE of the week  

Cuba is no example to follow – JAMES PERON

Venezuela is proof of the miraculous impact of socialism. They took a prosperous nation and destroyed it almost overnight. That’s a problem for that other socialist paradise—Cuba.

Cuba relies on aid from Venezuela to put food on the shelves. Venezuela doesn’t have any surplus to give and has cut aid to their comrades. Now Cuba has to ration food because there isn’t enough. CBS reported:

The Cuban government announced Friday it is launching widespread rationing of chicken, eggs, rice, beans, soap and other basic products in the face of a grave economic crisis. Commerce Minister Betsy Díaz Velázquez told the state-run Cuban News Agency that various forms of rationing would be employed in order to deal with shortages of staple foods.
