DROxINxTHExWIND: Doom MD: DROxINxTHExWIND: Hugo Chavez is the most contrived, made up super-villian in world history. His turn to the dark side was him having the audacity to suggest that Cheney and Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened. He said this during a time when President Bush's approval ratings were still relatively high as he played up that War-time President shiat. That was the good old days when ANY comment against the President was considered treasonous and we were all supposed to have "respect for the office". Republicans immediately began including Chavez's name with Kim Jong-IL and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while scared ass Democrats, trembling at the thought of being called a terrorist sympathizer, ran to Bush's defense. Chavez was born.

One side of my family lives in Caracas. I cannot emphasize any stronger how absolutely wrong you are.

Please enlighten me. Seriously. I did not say he's never done anything bad. There are MANY horrible dictators in the world. I'm speaking on when he became one of the Superstars of Villiany.


He has chased all foreign investment out of the country while stealing infrastructure the country invited them to put in place. He foments class warfare which basically makes the poor feel entitled to steal, murder, assault people better off than them. My family has a ranch down there and the adjoining ranches have already been taken by the government from its rightful owners. There are currently soldiers just slumming it there for the most part. Many people of any means have flat-out fled the country (although Chavez has put in barriers to withdrawing ones money from the country). There is a creepy cult of personality around Chavez that he manipulates by his long weekly(?) television addresses. Standard of living has gone into the toilet and crime rates have skyrocketed. At times the capital has had to ration power and water with curfews for the above (let me remind you this is an opec nation with rainforest in it). He has come down hard on critics, shutting down television/radio stations that criticize him. In the middle of a television address he ordered his military to form up on the Columbian border for kicks. He has rewritten the country's constitution to enable him to more easily control political underlings and expand his term limits. This is to say nothing of the shady elections he has held. Did I mention he's the president of a government he did jailtime for trying to overthrow?

I know I know, wall o text. I could go all day. If you were in Venezuela 20 years ago and then today the difference would be staggering. He's playing from the latin american banana republic dictator handbook. While that story usually ends with a shoot-out on the hacienda, it's looking more like it will end with a plug being pulled.

Pfffffft. Yeah, ok. He's terrible at running a country and he works with the elites to steal money from the citizens. Remind you of anyone else?? Maybe a guy from Texas whose VP resigned from a company that ended up receiveing billions of dollars in no-bid contracts? Call me when the genocide starts. Like I said, he's the most contrived super villian, ever.
