    It;‘s true that medicine was free in the Soviet union. IF you could get it. When I was in college taking a ruskiy course just prior to fall of the Soviet Empire, the Russians had collaborated with the BBC in a teaching video for the Russian language. It was funny but tragic, because the Soviets tried to out a good face on it, but one of the characters was a doctor and it would be impossible not to notice the equipment was 1920s to 1950s. She took a guys pulse with an egg timer because she couldn’t get a watch. Now, if you were among the 11% of the Communist Party, then you would get the best western medicine had to offer. If you were the 89%, you’d best hope you didn’t get sick because most medications were not available.

    Cuba’s not much different. You get all the free health care you can get and people drop like flies because they can’t even get what we would call routine immunizations. Malnutrition is rampant. So is obesity, because the one thing people have is starch. No vitamins or protein to speak of, but starch, so they fill up on what is available.

    The east didn’t have any sort of environmental controls. Carrots had to be screened for lead before kids could eat them. The Poles had a joke that if you boiled down a ton of cabbage, you got a cannonball. There was a 7,000 mile long cloud of industrial pollution, unaffectionately called “the brown cloud” stretching from European Russia all the way to Alaska. People had lung diseases from asbestos, cadmium, lead, iron dusts, coal dusts, sulfur dioxide, and other nasties from no pollution controls.

    Elbonian capitalist sign-painters seem to be making out like bandits (or they would be if there were anything to steal)….

    I wonder if Elbonia is anywhere close to Bezerkistan?

    I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned North Korea… with the enormous military and near famine… or Vietnam… just don’t ask what happened to the Montagnard tribes people.

    The Hmong suffered a similar fate in Vietnam and Laos. :(

    This was obviously before Adams created the lookalike, black-bearded Elbonians.

    You might want to do a bit more research on the Cuban health care system. Their life expectancy is statistically equivalent to the US (depending on the source if information, they are slightly better), yet they spend less than 10% per person compared to what we pay here in the US. And … every individual is covered in the entire country, unlike the US where 40+ million people are still uncovered or undercovered.

    Drop like flies??? Hardly.

    Actually… Elbonia represents the ultimate dream of ‘progressives’ (as communists used to call themselves) and the antithesis of capitalism… I believe it is the Progressive Party with centrally controlled economics that is heading towards Elbonia
