Random notes on Amuay

Corazon del infierno

The New York Times is having a field day.  Not only we have a second major article highlighting the deficient governmental response but also a striking photo gallery of Amuay's ruins.

The chavista National Assembly leadership does not think it is important to discuss the Amuay accident.  Indeed, any fault, ANY, can be blamed on Chavez historical decision to transform PDVSA in 2003 into his electoral cash cow.  Recognizing that mistake today is exactly as saying that the emperor is not only stark naked, but with a duster up his keester.  And it gets better; we should all show solidarity with Ramirez while he digs the ruble instead of calling for his immediate removal.  The chutzpah of Diosdado, really....
This morning Globovision was reporting live the good news that the fire seemed under control. Unfortunately as hunk Reimy Chavez was talking we saw suddenly black clouds billowing and flames. It ain't quite over.  Even though the hated empire sent special foam and stuff.

Of course, there are useful idiots like James Petras only too willing to come to the rescue of Chavez, no matter what the offense is.  Now this character, without any evidence, says that it was all a conspiracy from the empire.  Ah!  an excuse to suspend elections that Chavez looks more and more like losing!

Still, some sort of supporters of Chavez can be quite critical after Amuay's disaster....


  1. I think after this coverage NYT Caracas new correspondent Neuman had better hope Capriles to win in October. Not only I do not see him getting any interview from any one inside chavismo, but let's remember that the NYT offices in Caracas have already been ransacked in Caracas.

    Chavez has total control over every decision at PDVSA. This central control is essential to socialismo. It also means Chavez is responsible for this disaster. Slow deaths with burns cover their bodies is horrific. It appears that all Chavez and his national assembly can think about is getting the oil production back up so they can keep plundering Venezuelan assets.

    Venezuela should take all the millions of dollar Chavez is usurping to his campaign and put them toward public safety.

    There have been so many "acts of God" in the last 14 years, it is appalling. My theory is that God hates Chavistas.

    1. Yes, it is certainly amazing that ignorant and incompetent people have so much "bad luck".

    2. Maybe god hates chavistas but the devil sure loves their wallets....

  4. Daniel what's up with all the gay references, "duster up his keister" ??? never heard that one before, is that a common expression in the GLAD community? ... and "hunk Reimy Chavez" are we in L O V E or what.

    1. Watch 2 and 1/2 men. That is where I got the expression, from the John Cryer character. Update your pop culture.

  5. Re: Useful Idiot James Petras

    If you look at his blog, for a socialist/communist, he isn't a bit shy about asking for money.

    1. The important question: Money in exchange for what?

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.
