Cuban Barbers Beat Communism
It's Newton's Third Law of political motion. If America is getting more socialist, then Cuba has to get more capitalist. The US government gets more involved with health care, therefore our Caribbean neighbors respond by ceasing control of their many barbershops.
Could it be? Yes, it is ... hair freedom! All types of beauty salons will be able to set their own prices and make money in a free market, while simply paying taxes and rent to the Cuban government. Up yours, Karl Marx!
It's such an odd industry to emancipate. The cigar industry? Sure, that'd be huge news. Even the baseball industry. But are Cubans known for their hairstyles? (They're popular enough for Getty Images to have stock photos of such establishments.)
Still, I hope Raul Castro still gets a free shave and a haircut wherever he goes without having to pay two bits.
