The End Times

Obviously this isn't something I'm writing, but wanting to share. This is scary, but I suppose if Revelations as laid out in the Bible is to come about, certain things are going to have to happen in our world. Not so good things. Here's one example (click on the link):

Cuban leader applauds US health-care reform bill


HAVANA -- It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

Fidel Castro is credited with:

Castro's regime has been credited with opening 10,000 new schools and increasing literacy to 98 percent. Cubans enjoy a universal health care system, which has decreased infant mortality to 11 deaths in 1,000 (1.1 percent).

The fact that Fidel Castro is congratulating Barack Obama is scary. Does this say anything about what we’re to expect? There is something really wrong when a dictator from Cuba applauds healthcare when in other areas he is involved is much, much worse (I quote from

Castro signed the First Agrarian Reform Law, which limited the size of land holdings and forbade foreign property ownership. The intent was to develop a class of independent farmers. In reality, this program led to state land control with the farmers becoming mere government employees.

By the end of 1959, Castro's revolution had become radicalized with purges of military leaders and the suppression of any media critical of Castro's policies. (Interesting.)

On April 16, Castro formally declared Cuba a socialist state.

Castro declared himself a Marxist-Leninist and announced the Cuban government was adopting communist economic and political policies.

Removed opposition to his rule though executions and imprisonments, as well as through forced emigration.

So I guess universal health care is all good as long as we can take the bad along with it. Sound familiar?
