Quote of the Day - Raul Castro Edition

"Many of us Cubans confuse socialism with freebies and subsidies, and equality with egalitarianism,"

Raul Castro to his legislator.

Well, what did he expect?  Socialism has never worked anywhere in history.  Cuba is know in the process of shedding the over bloated government.  It is estimated to have more than a million workers in jobs that are not needed.  All of this while they have little to no free economy to provide the revenue to pay for all that government.  The money to pay them has to come from somewhere.  Castro has also said that he will be allowing more free markets to open in order for the government to have money to pay for the largess.  So basically, even in Cuba you have to work for what you have.  What a concept.

The only thing better would have been Raul Castro saying "Wish I had read Adam Smith before Fidel got to me."
"Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive"
