Damn.  That is one expensive funeral.  He had 2 billion yesterday.

I'm sure he was going to will it to the people but died before he could update his will.

One thing, you look at him and Kim from Best Korea... they fat.  You look at Putin and he's in shape and skinny.  The skinny guy is the one you need to be afraid of in my opinion in regards to dictators for life...

Sucker died due to iatrogenic illness, a bug picked up in a hospital.

If you want someone to die give them an interventionist personal doctor.

I, for one, am just so suprised that he squirreled away  embezzeled $500M.

I am certain that the $250M will go to a good cause.

Never trust or fear a man whose ass is wider than his shoulders.

Did the cancer make it, though? It was the innocent victim in all this.
 
2013-03-06 09:34:46 AM  
seems like i heard some saying about absolute power corrupting absolutely...i'm sure it has no bearing here. The guy was only about helping the poor.

A billionaire president of an oil-rich country still has to fly to a different country for medical care.  To be fair, he certainly put a lot of money into importing Cuban doctors and medical practices to Venezuela, and Cuba has pretty good healthcare in the first place, but still.  Money not well-spent, clearly.

He seemed to be a man in which his ego and his "heart" competed on the playing field that was his country as a whole.  He wanted to do a lot for the little guy, but also did much for himself.  In the end, he died relatively young and his big plans are half-fulfilled.

Man of the people, no doubt about it.

At least we know his half billion dollar fortune won't go to waste.

/elections cost a lot to buy, after all.

How much money does Obama have?
 
2013-03-06 09:37:50 AM  
I'm sure he was keeping all that evil capitalistic wealth to protect his people and country. HERO!

He was just holding it for the country, to be redistributed upon his demise.

doubled99: How much money does Obama have?


All of it.
 
2013-03-06 09:38:48 AM  
Well, that does it, I'm not voting for him next time around.
 
2013-03-06 09:40:32 AM  
Let's hope Venezuelans choose for their next leader an individual who has the same respect for human rights and free markets that Americans have. You know, somebody like Augusto Pinochet, or Hosni Mubarak.

Say what you will about Chavez, but he never banned 2 liter pop with your pizza order.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: I'm sure he was keeping all that evil capitalistic wealth to protect his people and country. HERO!


Well, duh.

He was Champion of the Poor.

What happens when poor people get a pile of money?  They're not poor any more.

He was just preserving his constituency.
 
2013-03-06 09:41:01 AM  
Hey, give the man his due.  Even Jesus said, "There's always going to be poor people" before getting his feet washed.  Chavez was just following Jesus' idea out to its logical conclusion.

Don't be too hasty.  Zombie Chavez might have it all going on for himself.........or Robot Chavez, death may come quickly to his enemies....Seek Destroy etc...

By how fat he was I'm pretty sure he had a 2 liter soda hooked up via IV on him at all times.

With a high score like that, I guess it does make him the champion.

 I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying that I approved of it. Mark Twain
 
2013-03-06 09:50:17 AM  
As long as we just don't send him, he should be perfectly well qualified to continue in his enlightened rule.

Saw a couple of idiots who were saddened by the loss of "such a great man"
When somebody pointed out the dictator part they turned it in to the silliest thing ever.
YOU HAVE CHAVEZ BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK! YOU RACIST!!!!!

Not to dispute the sentiment but, celebritynetworth.com?
 
2013-03-06 09:51:30 AM  
As soon as he got 2 billion, the next guy, the Vice President will get two billion. Then the next. It's Slo Mo Socialism.

Just you watch. The VP will get his 2 billion very soon.

You don't.... yeah.
 
2013-03-06 09:51:38 AM  
At least in Venezuela they still have to pretend to be acting in the interests of the people.  In the USA the politicians can't even muster the energy to do that.
 
2013-03-06 09:52:21 AM  
It'll trickle down.

I always did appreciate his commitment to the faux turtleneck undershirt.

Those things don't have to be mutually exclusive, subby.
 
2013-03-06 09:55:21 AM  
Chavez's rule looked like something out of Woody Allen's Bananas. There must be something in the water down there that turns a champion of the people into a ruthless dictator as soon as they get power.

How does that coincide withyour post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids.....

I always find it amusing that these guys who spend all their lives living on a government salary seem to wind up rich.

Lot of right wing glee in this thread.  I cannot wait until Margaret Thatcher dies.
 
2013-03-06 09:59:35 AM  
I could simply die of not surprise.
 
2013-03-06 09:59:36 AM  
Wait a minute -- you mean the distribution of wealth doesn't actually apply to the politicians themselves?!?!

Corrupt hypocritical evil dictator is dead! Too bad I missed my dead pool pick by about two days. Now that the jackass of South America is dead perhaps peace will stand a chance down their again. We'll see if his successor is as good at kicking the hornets nest on queue as he is.

Are you trying to get people to make fun of you?  You're not very competent at trolling lately.
