MNguy: LewDux: MNguy: He's not even close to those other dictators in the headline.

I'd say he's quite close to Tito, Ceausescu, and Milosevic

How so?  He's not responsible for any mass killing AFAIK


There's so much derp around Chavez, coming from both left and right, that it's ridiculous.  The right wants to make him into South America's New Hitler, and he's definitely not that.  But there are people on the left who want to praise and canonize him, and he's just done too much troubling stuff to limit freedom of expression and the press to really be a hero either.  His legacy will be very, very complicated.

Takeshi6400: macadamnut: Takeshi6400: They have a different definition of "live birth" than the US, that causes many deaths to not be included and make their figures look a lot better.

Awww, did that mean old Castro steal your toy banana?

Uuumm......ok.

Cuba is one of many countries that has a different definition of what constitutes a "live birth."  The United States counts any baby exhibiting any signs of life as a live birth.  In France, Czech Republic, Ireland and Holland it has to be over 22 weeks and 500gm before it is counted.  The United States also counts premature babies who die before their due date but many other countries do not.  Many countries also report deaths in the first 24 hours of life as still births rather than infant deaths.  In the US they would be counted as infant deaths.


In the U.S. your life expectancy can drop by 10 years because you're not white.

wesmon: downstairs: Serious question about all this, I've been wondering since the news of his cancer broke.

Why is he going to Cuba for treatment?  I would be shocked that Cuba has better cancer doctors- or any medical stuff- than Venezuela.  I'd assume Venezuela isn't the best in the world, but are they really worse than Cuba?

Is that a serious question? Cuba is known for the quality of their medical care and amount of trained doctors.

Cuba has a lower infant mortality rate than the U.S. and it has programs in place to train U.S. medical students.

So yes, Cuba has better medical care than Venezuela, and in some respects better care than the United States.


They have a different definition of "live birth" than the US, that causes many deaths to not be included and make their figures look a lot better.

More of an amusement really. Except that whole theft of Exxon assets, I find him to be a clown. I fully expect the Che Brigade to re-write his accomplishments in glowing terms then repeat those lies so often they believe them. It's not like it hasn't happened before.

I think that is the ONLY thing Cuba does right is train doctors. They have a surplus of medical staff that they send around the world.

That poor cancer has been infected with Hugo Chavez long enough. I hope its suffering ends soon.
