Blackouts Jorge Giordani by Teodoro Petkoff

These guys that govern Venezuela don’t seem to convince themselves that they have spent almost eleven years trying to destroy the country. They always speak as if they had taken over barely last month. This mini reporter was listening to Minister of Planning Jorge Giordani and he could not help but jump when the Professor explained that the crisis in the electric sector and the avalanche of blackouts that is flooding the country was the result of a lack of investment. He was saying that this was part of a plan by the “IVth.” To dismember CADAFE and sell it in parts to the private sector. Imagine that, cried Giordani

Even if we suppose that such plan had existed, which never did and doubly never existed and that it was true that there was no investment at all in the electric sector in the twenty years before Chávez and that dams like Macagua Uno and Two had been born by spontaneous generation and that it was the Paez Government and not Caldera´s, the one that contracted the Caruachi dam, let’s imagine that Electricidad de Caracas never invested a cent in expanding its generation capacity, and even then- Haven’t eleven years been sufficient to revert that behavior of prior Governments? Where were you eminent planner, all of these years? Are you coming now, like a country fair charlatan to invent the wheel? You have been in charge of Cordiplan (The Ministry of Planning) for a bunch of years and it never occurred to you to to point out what you are pointing out now? Eleven years, Giordani, eleven years is what this bunch of useless and incompetent of whom you are part, have been governing the country and you still have the gall of blaming previous Governments for your own irresponsibility! No, my dear Jorge, you guys are not only responsible for the holes in the streets-that you now ant to baptize with the names of the Mayors that Chacumbuele* has put there. But the blackouts are also yours.

In fact, the blackouts have, among others, your own name, Blackouts Giordani, like Potholes Jorge Rodriguez are those that exist  in the vicinity of the street where this mini reporter is your neighbor.

*Chacumbele is a nick name Petkoff uses for Chávez , in the song Chacumbele killed himself after falling in love with a woman.

    there has been a massive increase in demand for electricity because of the success of govt programmes redistributing wealth and stimulating economic activity. the chávez govt HAS been able to increase the quantity of electricity generated – the blackouts are because this massive increase has not been able to keep pace with the even more massive increase in demand. the govt has been increasing electricity generation but the past corrupt and visionless leaders of venezuela never considered such widespread power usage so the 1998 infrastructure was woefully inadaquate and modernisation will take some time. of course if the government had not increased the poor’s access to electricity, and simply focused on increasing power supplies, then Venezuela would have the same amount of electricity is does today but this time without the complaints of petkoff who would not have to share this resource with the poor. maybe your neighbour in the foothills of santa monica knows a little bit more about planning than you think teodoro…

    Hugo Chavez does plan ahead. He knows exactly where he wants to be for at least the next twenty years. Electricity for the masses is not important since Hugo will always have electricity.

  3. GeronL Says:

    You want to end blackouts?

    Give companies an economic incentive to provide a good service at a good price. This requires free market capitalism of course.

    Sadly, all too predictable.

    Everyone knows what needs to be done, but no one has the courage to do it. Chavez MUST go. He is destroying the country, and EVERYONE is paying for his stupidity.

    He will NEVER leave via a fair election, so if you’re waiting for that, you’re SOL. And if you think that he will, then you don’t know enough history.

    About Chacumbele:

    Petkoff gave the moniker to Chavez because supposedly Chacimbele was responsible for his own demise. Here is a brief history of Chacumbele:

    I am a bit surprised that “THE FAT MAN” has not announced that the revolution will produce the world’s longest extention cord to provide power to Caracas. Perhaps he and Evo are working out the details. Similar to the high speed train to Argentina.

  7. Roberto Says:

    He means jury. They have to take turns and judge wherever there is electricity. Sort of a “rolling jury” if you will, that rolls with the blackouts.

  8. framethedebate Says:

    Don’t you mean Judge (not jury)?

    Jury will examine evidence on the weekend.

  11. GeronL Says:

    Let me be the winner. *laughs*

  12. framethedebate Says:

    Miguel, who won the Gaddafi contest?

  13. rwg Says:

    When will Chavez say that blackouts are practice needed for when the Imperialist United States invades?

    I hope Chavez has generators at his houses to help direct the bombing.
