Fidel Castro Dies (And Communism With Him)
Joy to the world! Fidel Castro’s dead! Let’s barbecue his head. What happened to his body? We flushed it down the potty. And around and around it goes. And around and around it goes. And around and around and around it goes.
Sorry about that. I couldn’t help celebrating the fact that Fidel Castro, a petty tyrant whose communist regime is responsible for countless crimes and atrocities, has finally kicked the bucket.
Of course, even before his death, his deathly grip upon his nation had been weakening ever since he passed the reigns on to his brother Raul. Since then, Cuba has slowly transitioned away from communism and more towards the free market.
And while there are many American "conservatives" who continue to gripe about Obama lifting Cuba's trade embargo, they really should be rejoicing as to how this will inevitably allow the island nation to improve, not only economically, but also culturally, as the natives will be able to benefit from the fruits of capitalism and better come to embrace it.
So goodbye and good riddance, Fidel! May Cuba’s communism promptly follow you into the grave!
