EZ—- I really liked Richard Pryor, but he was about
as messed-up as Hugo now is.
Chavez would do well to focus on his activities as a
media entertainer and leave other stuff to people who
know what the heck they’re doing.
Being entertaining is what he does best. I got a kick
out of this one…..
” Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez speculated on
Wednesday that the United States might have developed
a way to give Latin American leaders cancer, after
Argentina’s Cristina Kirchner joined the list of
presidents diagnosed with the disease.”

Whenever I hear Hugo speak, his boisterousness brightens my outlook on life.
OK, I will admit it, I love the guy, despite all his minor faults (in the grand scheme of things).
Get well soon my friend!!!
You are much appreciated over here by ME!!!
and obviously by your countrymen and women.
They call you a dictator (bullshit), but Venezuala at least has higher approval ratings from its citizens.

This one is hopeless. Chavez is a hopeless freaking
mess and seems determined to stay in office for the
rest of his life.

Mr. Fish, are you still hoping?

The have-nots in Latin America are much more politically astute than those in the US. As John Steinbeck said, “The poor in the US think of themselves as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” Organizing social movements here is much more difficult.

Sharp cartoon. The way Chavez is treated by US media is despicable. Everyone should check out Oliver Stone’s fascinating documentary “South Of The Border.” Latin America is providing an example of how social movements can truly change societies, form strong leaderships and parties while keeping the street movement intact to apply pressure when needed.
