Friends of Che

Cato-at-liberty finds out what Cuban "reforms" are really about:

My friend tells the story of the first person to purchase an electric bicycle, which cost the equivalent of $1,070. This man had a small butter factory that apparently was very profitable, since he was selling the butter at a lower price than the government. After buying his electric bicycle, the authorities investigated him and discovered his factory. They proceeded to confiscate everything they found in his home, including the bike.

You are now free to buy something that most dirt poor Cubans can't buy so that we can investigate you, steal all your money, and destroy your life. Viva La Revolucion!
