Philip J. Fry: I need a refresher. Why are we supposed to hate Chavez?
Jackson Herring: Satanic_Hamster: Subby; Chavez was good for Venezuela's poor. Not defending his methods, corruption, and anti-democratic actions, but you can't honestly say he didn't do a lot to improve the lives of the country's poor.Of COURSE you can. Don't you know that Jimmy Carter is a Democrat and Chavez was a "liberal"? You can say anything you want because liberals are bad, QED
DamnYankees: Chavez may have done many horrible things, but giving stuff to poor people wasn't one of them.
Philip Francis Queeg: We have a real crisis coming in this country. We are rapidly running out of Bogeymen. Osama, Ghaddafi, and Chavez all dead. Castro at death's door. Ahmadinejad out of office later this year.Who will the right use to spread fear? Who will be the new face of evil?
