For example, lie # 1 is that Cuba was a backward country in desperate need of a tropical Robin Hood. Sorry, that's not true! Pre-Castro Cuba had problems (what country didn't in 1959?) but mass poverty was not one of them.
Lie # 2 is that Cuba did not have doctors or health care until Fidel graciously gave us his wonderful system. Sorry, that's not true.
Lie # 3 is Cuba's life expectancy. Sorry, Cubans are not living longer. The Cuban government is playing with numbers.
Cuba's Long Lie Expectancy By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY puts the whole thing in some perspective:
"With a 1990 cutoff of aid from the Soviet Union, there has been a huge decline in living standards, according to University of Pittsburgh professor Carmelo Mesa-Lagos, who is recognized as a leader in Cuban demographics."
The IBD article has a lot of numbers, including the reality that Cuba leads the continent in abortions.
Frankly, I'm not surprised that the Castro regime would lie about its numbers. What amazes me is that the world's media is so gullible to fall for the regime's lies!
