God bless the Venezuelans!! I am sure I am one of the few people that have been following the goings on in Venezuela, so if you haven’t then you should. Then you’ll see what a government by the people and for the people really means. The basic gist of the situation is that the President Hugo Chavez is a communist bastard with strong ties to Castro. His goal was to make Venezuela like the happy people of Cuba.
The Venezualans have revolted. If your wondering why gas suddenly got expensive that would be due to the fact that the Oil Workers are on strike until Chavez resigns. Their supreme court ordered them to go back to work, they told the Supreme Court to go to hell. They are refusing to pay their taxes so the government threatened them with 7 years in prison. The people?s response? They marched on the tax offices and tore up the tax forms. Now the banks are going on strike to help cripple the countries finances in protest of Chavez. With almost daily protests to get the guy out, he better resign or they are going to kill him. The people have spoken, loudly. I can't wait to see how this turns out; they'll get him out. Alive or Dead? I don?t think anybody really cares. Damn, I wish we had balls like that here! That is what I call a T-nation. Get out, or we?ll get you out! I love it.
