I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

Castro Angry at Forbes for Reporting his $550 Million Net Worth

There are plenty of reasons to wish a speedy demise for Castro so that poverty stricken Cuba can have a chance at freedom and prosperity. Here's one more reason to add to the list:

According the CNN article in the title link, Forbes listed Castro among the world's wealthiest heads of state, estimating his net worth at $550 million. Not that I mind people getting rich, but this guy is the leader of a nation that claims everything belongs to the people for the benefit of the people. The average Cuban salary is only about $12 per month!

Forbes said the $550 million net worth was based this in part on:

"comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies,"
Castro's government, in perfect socialist style, lashed out at this report:

It called Forbes "an American magazine of decaying credibility."

"The revenues of Cuban state-run companies are used exclusively for the benefit of the people, to whom they belong," the statement said.

The statement went on to say that Cuba is the only Latin American country that fights inequality and has the fairest income distribution in the world.

This would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
