A post-less week followed by three in a day. But the latest pearly hit of the brightly dissociated capybara deserves a post. In it Chavez is using the argument that there are at least 5 CSI in the US and none in Caracas. Thus the US is way more dangerous than Venezuela. So there....

Alek Boyd has an interesting story as to some people wanting to erase stuff he published on Venezuelan corrupt practices. Read it, if anything to see what a lousy job they are doing at it, and not only because of their dismal English from people claiming to be lawyers.... Maybe that it the way they are recycling the hacks that used to torment us in the comment sections years past.

This week end we saw two incidents that reminded us how far into a dictatorship system we have been entered. I know, I know, some may want to remind me that I can still type my blog (for how long? bloggers and twitters have already been prosecuted in Venezuela), I can come and go out of the country (I cannot because I cannot tale my belongings with me), there are elections (but the results are voided as the regime pleases), there is still Globovision in the air (bot for how long, and only in Caracas and Valencia), etc... Whether you like to admit it, Chavez regime is a XXI century dictatorship, the new breed where it is enough to control the judiciary to perpetuate oneself in office. For those who disagree with me I kindly ask them to explain away the two stories that come next.

Últimamente no me ha dado por escribir sobre estos ataques. Ni escribí sobre el de Cotiza ni pensaba escribir sobre lo de anoche. Ya todo eso lo discutí hace tiempo y hasta predije que la frecuencia de dicha barbarie se incrementaría con la campaña. Pero esta mañana para el desayuno veo que mi Direct TV me grabó dos capítulos de una serie del canal Nat Geo “The Apocalypse: the rise of Hitler” y los vi tomando mi café. Esta serie debería de ser de vista obligatoria, con panel de discusión, para todos, TODOS, en Venezuela.

|Chavez from the Capital of the new born confederacy of Venecuba|
Besides letting us know that he is cured but that he will undergo radiation therapy anyway, Chavez has started his daily routine in Havana from where he will rule over his subjects. Among other pearls of wisdom he said that the Monagas oil spill was greatly exaggerated, that PDVSA and "community" actions were prompt and effective, that Syria and Assad are unjustly attacked and that in Russia the reelection of Putin was just more democracy at play.
Whatever pain killers they are giving him, I want some.
PS: is it me or is the Cuban flag bigger than the Venezuelan one?

These days we can divide the country roughly in 4 groups which are vying for the succession of Chavez. Whether they want to go into the fight is irrelevant, but only one group with the more or less grudging support of another group will be able to prevail, at least for a brief time. I think we can classify the country in 4 groups today because each one contains a radical wing and maybe a not so radical one but they are motivated by the same interests. Thus the four groups of motivation, three chavista and 1 non chavista (I abstract the vaunted NiNi since they all can be included in some form with the not very motivated portion of one of the different groups).
