Venezuela’s anti-castro rebellion spreads
castro didn’t show up in Caracas today, even though Hugo Chavez may have had the Popemobile all ready for him, along with military honors and perhaps the command of the army itself. He was supposed to come to sponsor the graduating military class on the anniversary of the great battle of Carabobo, which secured Venezuela’s independence. castro didn’t show at all. He must know how popular he is these days.
Venezuela’s military cadets have resigned their commissions rather than hand over their nation’s sovereignty to the foul barbudo.
Meanwhile, Venezuela’s doctors have protested bitterly against castro’s political incompetents, chosen for their castro loyalty in Havana rather than medical skills, but coming to professional hospitals in Caracas to rule the previously free, educated, Venezuelans.
Now, a group of veterans and unemployed people have gotten bolder: they marched into – into! – the Havana embassy in Caracas and protested the takeover of their once-vibrant country by castro’s thugs. They didn’t have a permit, they just did it anyway.
Meanwhile, if you’re a Cuban doctor in Cuba, you make $20 bucks a month. If you’re a Cuban doctor in Venezuela, you make $100 to $200 a month, which means,
This $200 a month per smock in turn was undercutting Venezuela’s real doctors, same as industrial dumping, and putting those Venezuelan professionals out of business.
I know of at least two Venezuelan doctors (graduates of US medical schools) that have moved to the USA recently.
So please, don’t talk to me about Fidel’s (and Hugo’s) “free” health system.
