We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Hugo Chavez is truly a character of the times. He has a way of letting MSM capture his ranting and ravings and put them on the airwaves and now he duping the Venezuelan public into believing the United States is going to send agents to assassinate him. I think he has gone off the deep end and is in need of psychiatric attention immediately before someone or some nation actually gets hurt. What really bothers me is that the Venezuelan populace is unable or unwilling to do anything about having a mad man for a leader. Hugo although a laughingstock around most parts of the globe does have his followers since his money is very petrol good.
What are the Americans to do? I think we should just watch and wait because he should blow himself up within time, and by all accounts it may happen sooner than later and then maybe we should call Austin Powers to the scene. After all Hugo is becoming one big joke!
