Apple and the iPad joined the Empire against Chavez

Yesterday, during the introduction of Apple’s new product the Ipad, it appeared as if the company joined the Evil Empire as millions saw the demo of the iPad showing the New York Times page and right there on the middle right side, the headline:

“Anti-Chavez channel is taken down”

Of course, those on the other side feel it was the other way around, the good guys at Apple are actually on our side and wanted to show it!!!

(To M.G., thanks!)

Venezuelan Nazional Guard unveils new weapon to repress students
