A blog about life under, and resisting, a dictatorship
Outstanding. It's the most honest Chavista ballot you will ever see.I recall shortly after the AN passed its enabling law (was it the last one? Seems like they've done it so often I can't keep track) a certain philoChavista stopped by to argue that they were simply following the mandate of the people. I challenged him to show me where in their campaign platforms they promised to roll over and yield everything to Chavez. Naturally, he dropped the argument.Truth is, though, he was completely right, though I think he was smart not to keep arguing. There's not a single rojo, rojito out there who dares to think independently. Never mind that it is an absolutely useless management style. Even if Chavez had the best of intentions (stretch the imagination....might be easier in the abstract - imagine a President of Venezuela with the best of intentions), Venezuela would still be a mess.
AIO,Dummies must THINK THE SAME as the DEAR LEADER does you know...
1979BP, are they dummies to begin with, or are they dummies simply because they put their brains in neutral and stop thinking? Makes little difference in practice, but it does say something about the person.We should publish a book - Chavismo for Dummies. It would be one of the shortest books ever published, because all it needs to say is:1. Obey El Comandante.2. If El Comandante has not ordered what to do in specific circumstances, do nothing and await your orders. Then see Rule #1.
AIO,Yes, that is all the "Chavismo for Dummies" book needs to be published.Oh..Oh... i forgot to mention that the cover of the book should be in RED and BLACK instead of YELLOW and BLACK you know....
Read and black like this thing? http://daniel-venezuela.blogspot.com/2010/04/19-de-abril-as-dysfunctional-holiday.html I think all red would suffice. It's for dummies, so you really don't need words. (I think too many Chavistas wouldn't get the humor of "dummies" in the title, anyways.) And with all of just that color, what other purpose would there be? It just screams, "I have this book to suck up to Hugo!"
Comments policy:1) Comments are moderated after the fourth day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.3) COMMENT RULES: Do not be repetitive. Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule). This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
