Joke's on you,  subby.  The poor are the only people the socialists care about in Venezuela.  If you make the country money and don't work for the government, you must be playing baseball elsewhere.

He can do as he wants.

Is it any worse than that Philippine congressman / lounge singer who moonlights as a heavyweight boxing champion?

Oh I get it!  Subby shoehorned a conservative talking point about how demonrats and soshulizmz are responsible for every bad thing that ever happened in Detroit into a headline about a completely unrelated story about a former athlete moving back to his home country and going into local politics!   SOOO CLEVER!

I'm assuming your hilarious Chicago-based headlines working gun freedumz derp into stories about former Bulls or Cubs players doing unrelated things are already in the queue and will go green later tonight.

Nobody knows Socialism better than a guy that made hundreds of millions of dollars playing a game in a foreign country for almost 20 years. I'm sure every penny of that wealth was fairly redistributed to the collective, right?

It's funny because you're clearly referring to Manny Pacquiao but got the weight class way wrong. You are still partially correct though. A heavyweight champion, Vitali Klitschko, is also a congressman and likely to run for President in Ukraine.

/At least Vitali has a PhD

This new republican Detroit/Socialism meme is full of intergalactic grade stupid.

Yes, they think making reasonable-at-the-time concessions to your workers = socialism, and think screwing over your workers in the name of profit = capitalism.  Neither is even close to the real definitions.

I wish it were only that stupid, one example is they think Detroit was bailed out by Obama but still went bankrupt, proving socialism does not work. So yes, they don't understand the difference between car companies and cities.

/Bill O'Reilly actually said that on air

Subby's retarded. Magglio is obviously more famous for his much longer service in Chicago, where he was secretly trained by Obama.

<- looks it up; sees that MO hasn't played for CWS since 2004, kicks dirt and walks away feeling sad and old. I honestly thought he played for CWS almost all of his MLB career. I need to start paying attention.

Manny fought in so many different classes, I assumed one of them was "heavyweight".
