Is it bad form to dance in the streets and celebrate when an old Commie leader bites it?
I vote no:
Not when the deceased is a ruthless murderer who single-handedly destroyed a beautiful island country, enslaved its people, ruined its economy, and imprisoned thousands of sweet vintage rides.
I note that just yesterday there was a bit of discussion regarding Americas dis-information media that your government doesnt want you to participate in. How ironic that one of the worlds most pre-eminent ministers of mis-dis-information dropped dead last night.
Indeed Fidel Castro has been implementing the Progressive economic re-development plan since 1957:
Cuba: practicing the Detroit model of urban development since 1957!
As I pointed out years ago in JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! Fidel Castro was a former winner of the Most Dubious Caribbean Island Economic Recovery award. It was bestowed for his exemplary work in establishing Promise Zones to provide aid in cutting through red tape to get access to existing resources. Here are some of the results of his program:
Promise Zone 1: helping entrepreneurs set up food carts in downtown Havana
Promise Zone 2: helping urban gardeners grow food in Havana - Are you paying attention, Detroit?
Promise Zone 3: avoiding First World traffic congestion by outlawing any vehicle made after 1959
As I pointed out at the time, America was nipping at Cubas heels: with 92 million [edit: 93 million now!] people out of the labor participation pool, nearly a third of all Americans are now unproductive! That means we may well be on the way to becoming a One-Third World Country too!
It might be useful for the snowflakes, who will no doubt be mourning the death of one of their last remaining idols, to be reminded what life under a benevolent Communist dictator looks like. The realities are not quite as romantic as the fantasy. If they, like Barack Obama, consider our Constitution to be a charter of negative liberties I wonder how they would describe Cubas actual charter of negative liberties. Here are just a few of the many negative liberties Cubans
Cubans are not allowed to access the Internet from their homes or on their cellphones.
No cable TV.
No public demonstrations allowed. (What?! No drum circles? No window breaking and police car incinerations?)
Cant live in Havana (without a permit). (Dont worry, if you cant demonstrate anyway why bother moving to Portland?)
No Political Parties allowed (except the Partido Comunista de Cuba)
No inviting a foreigner to spend the night without a permit. (What?! No sanctuary cities!? No sanctuary college campuses!?!)
Selling lobster and shrimps is not allowed. (What?! No free enterprise in this Communist paradise!!!!)
Imagine the tears the snowflakes will shed should they ever wake up to find out that this was their lot in life. That might even be worse than discovering that their candidate who they meant to vote for if only they had remembered what day the election was lost. You might think theyd be very grateful that their president-elect is somebody who wants to Make America Great Again instead of someone who wants to Make America More Like Cuba.
Heck, I wouldnt be surprised if Donald J. Trump doesnt even make Cuba great again too. In his spare time.
Yes, I think this would look nice in Havana.

Umm. Lemme think...
re: Trump International in Havana.
Well, Cuba needs a new Presidente. We happen to have one who’ll soon be out of a job who is well trained and experienced in their form of government.
If there is golf in Cuber, this could be a win-win. And, being as close to Gitmo as he would be, he could at least visit kinfolk.
But, but, they have great health care and everyone can read! /s
Ah , the walking talking feces pile has finally stopped walking and talking.
Flies, do your job.
Of only the entire staff of the NYT would follow suit.
If, not of.
Ipads are not grammar and spellng friendly.
He got to die from natural causes.
Not like his murderous buddy Che...
You know, if Cuba finally liberalized, allowed free speech, a free or freeer economy, encouraged a market for modern medicine, allowed builders like Trump to come in and rebuild the infrastructure, then all the snowflakes and Marxist professors and most of the Hollywood elite would protest.
