"The bank opens at 8:30 for multiple transactions. Many other people like Jose Manuel will wait patiently, on foot, whether in intense sun or cold and rain if it is winter, in order to cash their retirement. Jose, his two-hundred forty pesos (ten dollars average), which will vanish in the first food purchases and payments for services."
Its disgusting to see that after 55 of Revolution(Dictatorship) a Cuban after retirement is paid only $10 A MONTH.a criminal repressive heartless dictatorship!

You're barking up the WRONG TREE, when you discuss Veteran's payments, Multi-Names!

Your American WAR VETERAN'S (from the many 'INVASIONS', that you wrongly call; WARS), have PLENTY OF HORROR STORIES, ABOUT HOW THE USA GOVERNMENT TREATS THEM!

NEED I PRINT SOME OF THEM, just so readers' compare them to what you have posted about the Cuban Veterans'

The Cuban Veterans' are getting approx., 92% of the wages of the ORDINARY CUBAN CITIZEN'.

Do the American Veterans' get 92% of the wage rate, of US Citizens?

NOT BLOODY LIKELY!

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Multi-Names!

---St. Thomas Aquinas' Teaching Against the Infidel Mohammed

The Prince of Theologians, St. Thomas Aquinas
"He (Mohammed) seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh urges us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected; he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom. Indeed, the truths that he taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity.

He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the Contrary, Mohammed said that he was sent in the power of his arms - which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants. What is more, no wise men, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him from the beginning (1). Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Mohammed forced others to become his follower's by the violence of his arms. Nor do divine pronouncements on part of preceding prophets offer him any witness. On the contrary, he perverts almost all the testimony of the Old and the New Testaments by making them into a fabrication of his own, as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is thus clear that those who place faith in his words believe foolishly." - Summa Contra Gentiles, Book 1, Chapter 16, Art. 4. Footnote: 1. Sura 21:5, Sura 44:14; Sura 16:103, Sura 37:36

MOHAMED YOU HAVE BEEN E X P O S E D !!!!!!!!!
.

Mohamed (though that is his REAL name he will post under usurped avatars to create confusion and make himself appear to be an average mainstream "leaning to the Left" citizen.

He attended school in Oxford, England and has excellent command of the English language. Do not let him fool you! He is a Paki, a muslim Paki that lives in Canada and HATES the USA and it's people!
.
.BEWARE!!!!!! He is an ISLAMIC CYBER TERRORIST!!!!
.
.
His AGENDA: destroy America and the Western Free world!!!!!
.
.
Mohamed is a MUSLIM TERRORIST posing as a mainstream white man with ideology leaning towards the left.In reality, his ideology is extreme RADICAL LEFT with the intent of widening the schism in America. His goal is to contribute to destroy America from within by simply demonizing our society and our government, while praising the enemy such as the neighboring dictatorship in Cuba and their ally/colony? Venezuela.
.
.
.
He also will be critical of dissidents and accuse them of being supporters of Batista. Most dissidents are against Batista, and the younger generation knows very little about Batista.
Batista was a corrupt and undesirable piece of filth, but despite that he contributed to building and improving Cuba, while the present dictatorship has taken one of the most prosperous and advanced nations in the world and made it one of the poorest and most backward nations. Their only achievement is assembly-line doctors that they use in the third world to gain favors and recognition, but who are so poorly trained that they cannot compete with a USA trained Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner. They are mediocre in quality, not "top notch" like in the USA.
.
.
Communism produces substandard and mediocre products, not state of the art high quality.
They are capable only of mediocrity, not excellence!
.
.
.
Mohamed's AGENDA: To destroy America and the rest of the Free World!
And then have the muslims take over, do away with Democracy, Socialism, Communism, Capitalism, Multiculturalism, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hinduism etc.

A National Muslim Planet under Shariah law.....no other cultures, no other religions.....TOTALITARIAN SHARIAH ISLAMIC LAW !!!

What I meant to say is that countless die EVERY year in USA prisons due to neglect or the guards allow inmates to kill at will.

USA in MANY regards is worse than Cuba .

I know that you KNOW this .

Don't get me started on how many innocent people , USA police murder every year and NOTHING comes of it .

WAY MORE than Cuba.
