Oh Venezuela!

How stupid can you be. Do you realize you will loose money if you do this. Chavez is a lunatic and should be replaced.

I don't know that I would call Chavez a "lunatic". He's a socialist who doesn't like the U.S.

I think he likes the US, just not Bush. But I can't stand him. The Lenin of the South.

That'll hurt the people more than it'll hurt us I do believe.

Thats what I mean. Now people who were working for American Continental Airlines and Delta have to look for jobs and if those airlines provided low airfare in that country, now have to spend more.

I guess Chavez can blame the US as he drives the Venezuelan economy into the ground.

And don't forget his anti-semetic remarks.

True. And Bush can´t blame Venezuela as he drives the US economy into the ground.

I actually think this gives him too much credit, Justin, if that makes sense.

Stupid move, I agree, but ultimately, I just have this hunch that he knows his support comes from social programs, and he can't afford them without trading. He's better off cementing ties with Bolivia's new president if he wants to do something for the Revolution. LOL.

Hiphop, please refrain from reminding me about the current US economy.

Bush's far right rhetoric is going to be counterbalanced elsewhere in the world. Getting rid of Chavez would just leave a void that some other leader would fill.

But hey...when we don't care what the rest of the world thinks, beyond doing exactly what we tell them to do, other countries are going to start doing the same.

Oh, I remember that. I'm not saying he's a good guy or anything like that. Many odious people are perfectly lucid, they just don't give a damn that they're disgusting.

Well, we've been on an upswing for the last couple of years.

Well, if you define "economic progress" as "corporate profits," you'd be correct. However, in terms of "labor progress," we have that "jobless recovery," coupled with reports that average household income has actually dropped this year.

Like I once said, the U.S. only exists to cater to the top 1%. The rest of us are just pawns to maintain their lifestyle, and we are useful only for that.

As much as certain economic trends scare me, that's bullshit. Even without being in the top 1% it's possible to raise a family and have a decent quality of life. If you can show me one country where there's really anything close to social equality I'll be surprised.

And I think Chavez is a lunatic for the record. I suppose he can slide by by portraying himself as the brave one who stands up to Bush but I can't imagine that'll work for long.
