Cuba: Where Democrats Go to Learn Democracy

Outgoing mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake needs help figuring out how to run her next city into the ground faster.

Her mentor: Cuba.

As Townhall reports:

Remember how after Baltimore was half destroyed by rioters last summer Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s made headlines by claiming she gave Baltimore rioters “Space to Destroy?”

She tried to walk back the unfortunate statement—but it only half-worked.

In any case, as president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, last week she was in (totally destroyed by Communism) Cuba leading a mayoral delegation which also includes Mitch Landrieu, mayor of New Orleans (among the murder capitols of the U.S.)

“These meetings and visits will provide U.S. mayors and Cuban officials the opportunity to share best practices for providing city services in education, healthcare, infrastructure, and transportation, according to the story.”

That’s right, leave it to Cuba to show Democrats how to run things. This is a country that at least in 2014 didn’t have iPods. No I didn’t say iPhones, I said iPods.

Here is Cuba’s ranking according to The Wall Street Journal and Heritage Foundation: 2012 Index of Economic Freedom, ranked 177 out of 179 countries.

I’m sure it’s much better now that Obama has opened America up to Cuba. Maybe Obama will replace the Castros and bring the same economic prosperity he has brought to the U.S. At least in Cuba they have nowhere to go but up.
