Chavez expropriates Cargill, threatens Polar Group

March 4, 2009

And in another funky, groovy episode of the clueless revolution, Hugo Chavez announced tonight the expropriation of at least part of the Venezuelan operations of Cargill, the US based food producer. Even the announcement was unclear, as the President did not specify if this applied only to the rice facilities of the company.

And taking advantage of the moment, Chavez also threatened Venezuelan Grupo Polar with expropriation of all of its plants, because, imagine that, the company sent lawyers to challenge Chavez’ decisions. How could they challenge the natural law that says Chavez can take over anything he wants?We seem to be going from autocracy to Dictatorship fairly fast.

While I have not had time to talk about the “intervention” of the rice plants by Chavez, as well as a new decree which regulates what you can and can not produce, it is all based on the concept of “public utility” approved in the 26 laws withing the Enabling Bill. This same concept was voted as part of the 2007 Constitutional Reform referendum which was not approved, despite which Chavez issued laws that covered the same topics…

Thus, Hugo Chavez is once again violating the country’s laws and the Constitution but some fools abroad still will claim this is a democratic Government. As usual, they back, what they would consider outrageous and a violation of liberties in their own country.

So, please, go do a revolution in your own country and don’t come defending Chavez’s actions.
