Yea, I'm the one with the authority issues.

I have a major problem with anyone in a position of power who oversteps their boundaries and infringes on people's rights.

I would think that everyone has authority issues in that case.

But when see everything coloured that way, it's impossible to be objective.

Either way, not important. Let's let the thread get back on topic with more sexy drawings

I'm just as objective as everyone else here. It just so happens to be that this is one issue that I care about, much like you probably have one issue that you feel strongly about. I agree it's impossible to be completely objective, but that is for everyone, not just me. On the other hand, some things are black and white. On the OWS issue, it was so obviously wrong the way some of the people were being handled by police. You may think I'm not objective, but it might surprise you to know that I don't even agree with the protests, and my sympathies lie with the Wall Street in the whole OWS fiasco.

But agreed, let's get back on topic. I won't post about this anymore, and if you still want to discuss, feel free to PM me.

I approve of the sexy drawings .

Seriously, though, I honestly don't know what'll happen should Chavez indeed die. Is there anyone ready to follow in his footsteps? Does the opposition have any ideal candidates? What exactly is the story with that?

I don't really understand why people think succession issues would be a big deal. Venuzuela is a democratic country that has voluntarily chose a left wing path to govern its affairs and will likely to continue to do so. The country has nothing in common with places like North Korea or Iraq under Saddam.

It is true that Chavez has built tactical alliances with some rather unsavoury people, but that is somewhat understandable given the large and threatening superpower to his north. The US has a lamentable record of interfering in the affairs of sovereign countries in South America and trying to impose, using brutal force and thuggery of proxy terrorists and far right militia, its extreme form of capitalism - a far worse record, incidentally, than the Soviet Union did in places like Czechoslovakia.

Yes, the U.S. supported non-communist coups d'état in S American to stop the spread of Soviet influenced communism into the Western Hemisphere. The same communism that rolled 2000 tanks into Czechoslovakia one evening in 1968. But you're right, it wasn't so bad.



To borrow a phrase from Czechoslovakia's Vaclav Havel: don't "live within the lie."

Hugo Chavez's body to be put on permanent display - Tampa Bay News, Weather, and Sports | WFLA


It seems, the leaders, of Socialists/Communists controled countries
need to keep their surpreme, dead, leaders in the people's face.

I think the Russians moved Stalin's body after he fell out out favor.

Come on Dfit00, you can't say that seriously, maybe he did have his bad things as all the presidents have, no one is perfect, but he did good too.
I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw in the news that the Venezuelans in Miami were "celebrating" his death, I think it's awful.
