Socialism does not work. How many times does that have to be proved?

Socialism does'nt work? Because of who? In this case Exxon. Not because of the economic system.Companies choose to turn it down. Not the people! Chavez is a democratically elected president and should be treated just like any other democratic president/prime minister. For example Tony Blair. Just my opinion.

All those that support socialism/communism/tyrany use their free speech rights on our media/airwaves/internet. I wonder what would happen if someone wanted to criticize those socialist countries and their leaders openly in their own countries? I wonder what would happen to an American wearing ''Chavez is a Pig'' tee-shirt during a demonstration in Caracas?

"Chavez is a democratically elected president and should be treated just like any other democratic president/prime minister."

So was Hitler. 'Those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it'

YOU made the statement. Neither JP nor I have made any statements and I am simply asking you to provide proof of your statement. If you cannot support it just take it back and we're done! We all can make mistakes in the heat of discussion.

That's why I would not want to try it. You seem to believe in Chavez and his type of government, so why don't you prove me wrong?
I don't know whether you are a natural born American, a naturalized American or a foreigner, so before you decide to wear that tee-shirt and head to Venezuela just let us know your origins so we can contact the proper authorities in case we don't hear from you.

Martinez-Fraga's suit claims that President Chavez planned and ordered the attacks that killed 19 protesters and left many more wounded. Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans marched on Miraflores Palace, the seat of the presidency, in a protest against the leftist Venezuelan leader.

The suit claims that Chavez placed snipers on rooftops and ordered military and paramilitary units to take positions near the presidential palace in anticipation of the demonstrators' arrival. Once the demonstrators gathered, according to the lawsuit, the troops opened fire on the demonstrators while Chavez, a former paratrooper, directed military operations by radio.


But go ahead; believe what you wish.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
