If it wasn’t for the money Cuban Americans were sending to their relatives still living in Cuba, the economic system there would have collapsed long ago.
Wonderful people those Cubans! Or were you trying to make a "negative" a point? Oh! I see! You think Cubans living in the United Snakes should "buy American" and not send their U.S. earned money to communist Cuba.

I guess you'll have to suck on it.

I would never make a negative point. My point is that if it wasn’t for the political clout of Cuban Americans we probably wouldn’t have sanctions on Cuba, yet Cuban Americans are the ones sending money to relatives in communist Cuba which is helping to keep it economically afloat.

How much money dose a person make in a day in Cuba?

Well, we Cubans don't calculate it per day. We are paid by the month.

I am a physician and I earned 350 pesos per month. That makes 11.60 per day. After the fall of the soviet Union, prices blew up.
An egg cost 1 peso and the rest of the basic needs around that.

We survive by our skills. Nonprofessional people usually work in personal things, like making plumber, carpenter, etc, works. But the materials to work with are usually "solved" from the State, which is the owner of everything.
People steal from the State because it is the only way to survive and is the only one that has something. We can say that the corruption is complete. Everybody steals. Today, even the members of the MIN INT ( State Security )
It is a matter of survival

Officially, there is no inflation in Cuba, but my wife paid once 40 pesos for a bunch of bananas and avocados.

Most people earn 148 pesos, or around that . To survive many people work in something else. In the case of doctors we are very limited because we don't know anything else except our profession, which we are strictly forbidden from private practice, as you all know

A pair of shoes, home made, can cost 100 pesos or more. Some people make shoes at home, but they must get the materials from somebody, and don't ask how that other person got them

A little more from the workers paradise

You can tell that not much.
The lowest level makes 95 pesos per month. That makes 3.15 per day, which is nothing.

Officially, according to the government, there is no inflation, but as everyone knows, the comunists give only their own statistics and figures, based on what is convenient for the regime

Especially since the fall of the soviet union, poor old fidel was forced, much against his will, to depenalize the use of the dollar. Before that, if the police surprised you with dollars you had 8 years in the tank

Cuba has one of the highest levels of suicides in America, but this is carefully concealed by the media in Cuba

A cousin of mine worked in the translation of information received there, and she tells me that when she took the information to the censors, they told her: "This is not good. Remove it. This is bad too. Remove it."
At the end, only a very minimal amount of twisted information was released

US military deaths in Afghanistan at 1,534
By The Associated Press – 18 hours ago
As of Tuesday, June 28, 2011, at least 1,534 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count.
The AP count is two more than the Defense Department's tally, last updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EDT.
At least 1,269 military service members have died in Afghanistan as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.
Outside of Afghanistan, the department reports at least 99 more members of the U.S. military have died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Of those, 11 were the result of hostile action.
The AP count of total OEF casualties outside of Afghanistan is one less than the department's tally.
The Defense Department also counts two military civilian deaths.
Since the start of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, 12,306 U.S. service members have been wounded in hostile action, according to the Defense Department.
