So...You like the sound of socialized medicine? But...Do you like the looks of socialized medicine??

From; The Real Cuba

Here is a look at Hospital Universitario (University Hospital) in Caracas after 9 years of Chávez:

The Operating Room

No Garbage Pick-Up

Dog in the Stair well

Patients on the Floor

So, Michael Moore, when are you coming down for some medical care???

Beautiful, but sad, post. I volunteer to bring Moore down personally. I am ready when you are, Michael!

Something, I wonder, that we may all have to look forward to in the USA once Mexico reconquers the southwest.

A friend of mine from work who is also an RN was going to Cuba and was so excited to see how their country was ran and came home very disappointed. She said, "I thought I would go down there and see happy people who get good education and free health care, but all I saw were unhappy people with no freedom." I told her that it was only Americans who don't understand how wonderful freedom is.

Excellent post once again Jungle Mom!

The street dog seems better taken care than the patients on the floor.

Too bad that the picts aren't bigger. The operation room give me the chills !

Have you seen the pictures of the hospitals where Cubans (not foreigners) have to go?

(The images are really disgusting).
