There is an enormous amount of incorrect information in this story.

There are several HUGE, Privately-owned, agricultural, cooperative supply depots, that have opened up recently.

These cooperatives supply restaurants AND individuals, who are able to purchase sufficient quantities of Farm-fresh produce, etc.

These facts were reported earlier, by the same people,(CBS News), just last week.

It's too bad, that, in their constant belittling of anything even remotely hinting at Cuban Success, IN ANY DIRECTION, that they didn't read what reporters IN THEIR OWN COMPANY, stated earlier this week.

This is not the first time that this type of nonsense has been noticed!

You have been misinformed again, dear boy.

I am not an 'Islamist', nor am I a 'Terrorist'

What I really am is a Casual Observer', which gives me license to scan the internet and report on what I see, hear or read.

Then I check it out by whatever means are at my disposal, for accuracy.

Next, I post the results for all to take note of.

You may not like what I post because it isn't what you have been told,(or in your case, informed of), but, it IS THE TRUTH!

You see, the difference between our philosophies, is, you post what, YOU ARE TOLD TO POST, whereas, I post about what is ACTUALLY HAPPENING,(or what IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE, if a certain number of OTHER actions, transpire).

It's all a matter of principle. I DO care about CUBA AND THE CUBAN CITIZENS',

You, and your ilk, obviously, DO NOT!
You people just want to return power to the, Calle Ocho, BATISTA-FOLLOWERS, WHO COULDN'T RUN A LITTLE POP STAND, on a GOOD day!
