Free healthcare even for foreigners! What’s not to like about Cuba? Weather there is good, too.

After yugo finds himself on the underside of the grass it will be one less two-bit, totalitarian, socialist dictator in the Western Hemisphere.

After November it will be two less.

Anyone for a “Dead Pool”?

Going to a communist hospital in Havana or Moscow is signing one’s own death warrant. Cause of death - socialist universal healthcare.

Hugo Chavez traveled to Cuba on Saturday for another round of cancer treatment,

What, are they going to give him some top-secret "sugar-mo therapy"?

What else have they got?

He must be worried that someone in Venezuela will inject him with some real chemo. Dictators have a hard time trusting their own people.

In a just world, the democrat party political class in Washington would give up their ultra-luxury healthcare (exempt from ObamaCare they mandate for the proles).

The democrat politicians and bureaucrats would be forced to go to Cuba, to get the same care that Crazy Hugo sought out.

Oh, that includes Michael Moore, who makes films saying what a medical paradise the flea-bitten shantytown/prison island of Cuba is. He actually sneaks into very expensive private clinics for his own real world care.

I think he’s getting the cuban coffee ground enemas there, which I understand are better than than the enemas he gets from back home... but not as good as the enemas he’s been giving his people for the last ten years... and a shade better than the enemas we’ve been getting from our president for the past three years...Anyway that’s my humble opinion....

The Grim Reaper is breathing down on Hugo's neck.

Time's running out Hugo! Time to get right with the Lord.

When chavez meets guevara in hell, he can ask him how Fidel deals with competition.

I wonder if Hugo wakes up at night thinking of how the first time he went for cancer surgery in Cuba, the doctors opened him up, went and found the tumor, said "Hello there, fellah!" waved fondly and sewed him back up again, sent him home while telling him how everything looked great!

It must really chafe his butt.

At first, I thought the photo was of Hugo Chavez and Baby Doc Duvalier (Haitian president for life), but then I realized it was a poor faked photo of Barry Soetoro and Hugo. The subject is very appropriate, though.

Castro and Raul are worth a tun of money. Remember, when you have the government supporting you with every wish you don't spend anything. At the same time you can sock away a fortune which they have. It's funny, they can't spend much of what they have taken.

I think he is on that machine I had for my Prostrate. A CT scan with a irradiation device which delivers a dose to a point. Chemical treatments are poison.
