    Thanks, 22. Yes, I know I shouldn’t feed the troll. It’s just so difficult to NOT respond to his idiocies! Thanks for the reminder.

  2. 22 Says:

    Nicacat. Don’t feed the troll, as in, don’t give him any importance unless he tries to make a valid claim based on facts. If you acknwoledge him, he’ll just keep coming back.

    Arturo, since no one else has said it yet (at least, I don’t think so): (in caps, so, YES, I’M SHOUTING!) YOU’RE AN ASSHOLE!!!!

  4. An Interested Observer Says:

    Roger, Chavez has said that he’s a Christian Marxist – or at least, when he went to China, he did call himself a Christian Maoist, and it seems like a very small leap from that to the former.

    No, I haven’t the faintest idea what either of those is supposed to mean. But I don’t think Hugo does, either.

    Provoke, provoke, provoke. How about coming up with a new word (in Spanish, of course) to describe darknesss? It could be something dripping with sarcasm, you know, politically correct. An example would be calling flooding ‘excessive rain’.

    Or you could name it after Chavez. Maybe Negro, Negrito? I don’t mean to be racist, I’m playing off of his Rojo, Rojito movement. Anyway, as a non-native speaker, I don’t have much to offer, other than the idea.

    You have to pound on Chavez every single day, while you still have the chance. Soon Chavez won’t need to censor anyone, without energy, nothing much happens.

    It will be interesting to see what will happen now.

    speed gibson,
    apparently no winter olympic athletes from Venezuela, it’s listed here, and none from Colombia either although no listing. Yes from a few south american teams including Argentina, Chile, and Peru… Brasil too (skiing? who knew! .. they train in Switzerland). My interest tapers off quite quickly outside of the americas.


  8. Roger Says:

    Part 2!
    As all of us baptized Catholics know, you can’t pray to a living person. Which of course leaves out Chavez. So who do you pray to? In Mexico they have prayed to Pancho Villa for example http://ojinaga.com/villa/oracion/ In Venezuela who would be a good choice? Bolivar? Miranda? Paez? Sucre? or if your a sick puppy, Falcon, Monagas, or the long list of Venezuelan Dictators that have made the present one possible? PS if you like homework you compose a prayer to one of them!

    We are having rationing from 3:00 – 6:00 every other day in my sector. It is really crappy. There is not much you can do. Computers, printers, servers, and photocopiers don’t work. Can’t go get a coffee at the local cafe’ because the espresso machine works on electricity. Can’t take a shit because there is no water pressure due to the pump not working and the toilet tank is empty. Can’t buy any meat, fish, cheese, frozen food, or veggies at the local supermarket because their refrigeration units are fried from the surges. So yes, mr. troll, its is crappy and it is uncivilized and its is inconvenient. No modern country should have to deal with shit like this in the 21st century.

    isnt Hugo going to Vancouver BC for the Winter Olympics? Im surprised he’d miss such an opportunity for exposure. Did Venz send a team?

  11. Roger Says:

    And now the Government wants us to PRAY to solve the electric shortage!! http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100210/ap_on_bi_ge/lt_venezuela_energy
    Last I knew Marxists don’t believe in God much less pray. They put their faith in party leaders!

    ¿Cuántos chavistas se necesitan para cambiar 1 bombillo? R: 100. Uno lo cambia, 99 le echan la culpa a El Niño.

    We have our own

    Gives new meaning to the phrase Está para dar a luz.

    This dour serf only has chuckles for his boss’ jokes.

    No jen – “truthless”!


    7. The political dissenter/martyr troll

    If your blog is interesting, chances are it’s because you take a stand on things. You have political views you feel passionate about. You build a community of people who are interested in these things and who interact thoughtfully and productively about said things. Heck, some people even manage to disagree civilly. Until political dissenter/martyr troll comes around, starting fights with everyone in a comment thread, spewing its passionate anti-whatever-you’re-into views all over the productive discussion. This troll will likely get mouthy about how pathetic a blogger is for not entertaining dissenting opinions, all the while only being interested in hearing itself talk (or type, as it were). Political dissenter/martyr troll, what good do you think you are doing? Whose mind do you think you are changing? Troll, you are an asshole.
