    Authorities feared footage of gleaming hospital in Michael Moore's Oscar-nominated film would provoke a popular backlash

    Cuba banned Michael Moore's 2007 documentary, Sicko, because it painted such a "mythically" favourable picture of Cuba's healthcare system that the authorities feared it could lead to a "popular backlash", according to US diplomats in Havana.

    You mean it's not one of the best health care systems in the world? Well...I guess it doesn't really matter, they are all equally misserable down there, a socialist utopia in action.

    Yes indeed!

    We are happy because the gov't tell us we are happy.

    Perhaps, the Cuban people are just too dumb to appreciate how good they have it.

    This is what the left claims about Americans since they do not seem to appreciate all that Papa Obama has done for them
