El Presidente Resigns (Not Re-Signs)

I guess the old bastard just isn't as committed to La Revolucion as we all thought:

Fidel Castro Steps Down As Cuba's Leader, Ailing Communist Leader Resigns Post Held Since 1959; U.S. Will Keep Embargo Intact - CBS News

Stalin, Mao, or Vladimir Ulyanov would never have given up so easily. I guess that's why Fidel's victims only number in the thousands -what an amateur.

It's most likely in preparation of his funeral. He'll probably he dead any day now and wanted to make sure his brother would take over to extend his reign for a bit longer and so that he can go out on his own terms.


SO, who wants government-run healthcare? Fidel has a good plan.

Yea, I bet he stood in line like everyone else and received the same treatment as his everyday citizens do.

President Clinton had extra medical attention too and even put in a jogging path that you paid for.

I hope you were joking.

Re: El Presidente Resigns (Not Re-Signs)

i wasn't. no one that runs any country, or has money, normally waits for anything. i wasn't picking on that moron that happens to be in the white house right now. none of presidents have to wait. i was referring to firstdown. he made it sound like a big deal that Castro doesn't have to wait for his medical attention

Re: El Presidente Resigns (Not Re-Signs)

I was laughing my ass off when I heard word "resign" yesterday cause I didn't really know a dictator could resign! Anywho, his resignation letter was even funnier:

Quote:
For many years I occupied the honorable position of president. On Feb. 15, 1976, the Socialist Constitution was approved with the free, direct and secret vote of over 95 percent of eligible voters. The first National Assembly was established on Dec. 2 that same year, and it elected the State Council and its presidency. Before that, I had been a prime minister for almost 18 years. I always had the necessary prerogatives to carry forward the revolutionary work with the support of the overwhelming majority of the people.

Just saw your post, but school is going well it is the internship search that currently is very difficult.

I am looking for consulting internships and having a tough time, but hey I guess that is life.

Re: El Presidente Resigns (Not Re-Signs)

There are some seriously hare brained ideas there. Didn't/doesn't our CIA have either better things to do or more intelligence to come up with more reasonable ideas?

No wonder they blew the WMDs. They were probably too busy reading books on indigenous cacti which they could rig to blow up when Osama went to take a pee.
