Yep, it's free alright. It ain't worth spit, but it's totally free. A bed, some dirty sheets and an aspirin. A rusty knife, a mirror and a bottle of booze if you need surgery. Some Cubans have trouble holding both the knife and the mirror after drinking the booze.

As far as Free health care goes. Native American have had free government supplied Healthcare for over a hundred years. Now how does life expectancy of Native Americans on reservations compare to other people?

Let's review: The Mayo Clinic...Cuba?
Johns Hopkins...Cuba? Any cancer treatment center in the U.S....Cuba? Pat, Barack, and Sean have answers for that one?
You don't know?

He was given chemotherapy, the same crap as Johns Hopkins or the Mayo clinic would have given.

The SAME poisonous crap that was used by U.S. hospitals and cancer treatment centers, 30 years ago.

It's just a LOT more expensive, now.

Chemo cocktail anyone?

Thanks big pharma.

Bonnie Franklin, the pert, redheaded actress whom millions came to identify with for her role as divorced mom Ann Romano on the long-running sitcom "One Day at a Time," has died of pancreatic cancer.

February 27, 2013

Dale Robertson, who parlayed his Oklahoma drawl and a way with horses into a long career as a popular, strong-minded star of westerns on television and in the movies, died on Wednesday in San Diego. He was 89.

The cause was complications of lung cancer and pneumonia.

Patrick Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer after being ill for over a year. He died in 2009.

Farrah Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer and died at the age of 62.

Ben Gazzara, whose powerful dramatic performances brought an intensity to a variety of roles and made him a memorable presence in such iconic productions over the decades as the original "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" on Broadway and the film "The Big Lebowski," has died at age 81.

Longtime family friend Suzanne Mados said Gazzara died Friday in Manhattan. Mados, who owned the Wyndham Hotel, where celebrities such as Peter Falk and Martin Sheen stayed, said he died after being placed in hospice care for cancer.

Where was Rannity or Limbaughtomy "bloviating" how "great" the most expensive health care system in the world is?

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez received treatment in Cuba earlier this year for an unknown cancer. He had his fourth and final bout of chemotherapy in Cuba last month. He had surgery to remove a tumour from his pelvic region in June and is now being evaluated by doctors, who hope he may fully recover.

Argentinian leader Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said on Dec 22 that she has thyroid cancer. The disease was discovered during routine medical tests, but it is thought she has a good chance of survival. The thyroid gland cancer has not spread to other parts of her body. She will have an operation on January 4.

The health of Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil, made the news in 2009 when she was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph system. Brazil's first female president has cancer check-ups every six months but said the cancer is 'resolved' and she is in 'good health'.

Ex-Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was diagnosed with throat cancer in October this year. The popular former leader, 66, began chemotherapy to treat a tumour in his larynx, with medics describing him as 'well'.

Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo, 60, was diagnosed with lymphoma in August 2010 but is now in remission after undergoing chemotherapy. Doctors discovered the lymphoma following a biopsy on a gland they had removed from his groin during minor surgery in August 2010. The malignant tumour is treatable with chemo.

Fidel Castro of Cuba has Terminal Cancer.

This also Bolivar President Evo Morales and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos all had some type of Cancers?

Loons always paint themselves into corners. Obama has just spilled his paint and his corner is getting smaller due to his lies about sequester, attacks on the press and his attack on the second amendment.

That has already started. There is a Russian politician calling for an investigation. Because 6 Latin American leaders have all come down with a similar cancer in the past 8 years.

I look at it this way. Nobody will ever know the exact truth. Whether it was a CIA op, natural contraction of a cancer virus, etc... Nobody will ever know. So screw it. Live on.

A "fresh start" in this case apparently meaning "bending over and dropping trou for the U.S. and big energy."

Chavez had plenty of failings, including his friendship with Cuba, but he also did a lot for Venezuela and its people. His was a mixed legacy, but let's not forget the good the man did.

Adios, amigo!
