Silly things I heard recently that matter to Venezuela

February 15, 2010

(Eleven years screwing it up)

–Colombia offers to sell electricty to Venezuela

I guess El Niño only goes up to the border between the two countries.

–There are 60,000 Cubans helping Venezuela out from Ramirito Valdes down.

Whatever happened to sovereignty? Wasn’t the robolution about that?

–Ecoanalitica says the purchasing power of salaries will drop 12% in 2010 after dropping 6.2% in 2009

Imagine those that don’t have salaries!

–And to the consternation of Chavista fanatics, their idol Minister of Commerce Eduardo Saman was removed from his position.

It is not known if this was because Chavez read my blog and realized that Saman never worked at the Arepera Socialista , as promised, or that after all of the noise with Zuluaga’s Toyotas, a case could not be built on any violations. Of course, he may have been caught stealing, but we never know about those.

–Edelca workers prayed for rain and for the Guri dam.

It’s a test of faith and wills, you know what the opposition has been praying for years. So far, neither has results.

–28 airplanes used for drug smuggling were “found” in San Juan de Los Morros in a hangar.

That is why we feel protected, when such stealth and small objects used in drug trafficking are found by the authorities.

    Cubano bueno viene por tierra.

    all said

  2. RWG Says:

    If Chavez wants to rule a Cuban-like country, he should apply for Castro’s position. I understand it will be opening up soon.

  3. Bill Simpson of Slidell USA Says:

    Venezuela needs ‘help’ from Cuba? Maybe if an asteroid hit, it might.

  4. An Interested Observer Says:

    “I guess El Niño only goes up to the border between the two countries”

    Since El Niño is strictly a Pacific Ocean phenomenon, it apparently just jumps over Colombia altogether and unleashes its full impact on Venezuela.

  5. Beatriz Says:

    Venezuela is ungovernable and unpredictable ergo it will be impossible to keep us under the Cuban boot for too long. Puro bochinche dixit Francisco de Miranda!!!
    Perhaps that will be our salvation ; )

    I see that Bolicrats prayed for rain to solve the electricity crisis. Bueno! We will see if it works and I see that that they had some bands playing and making the usual Chavfiesta out of it. I wonder if they had the Maria whatever Voodoo folks there?
    When I was little French Canadian Catholic boy we would pray for the conversion of Russia. Damn if it did not happen!
    Seeing as the other side has decided to bring God into this, perhaps the opposition should also.
    Street Marches are good but praying Novenas in Churches for good leaders for Venezuela with the police outside wondering what to do next. A nice checkmate.

    Well, from El Nuevo Herald last Thursday, but now up at:

    A Translated Quote from Victor Poleo, Minister of Energy in Venezuela, 1999-2001:

    “There has been a militarization and Cubanization of the electric sector with ineffective results.”


    There’s enough understatement in that quote to make it almost Pythonesque.

    El Universal has an english page, that is great. How long before the Robolution goes after it?

    Here’s another one for you Miquel:

    “Crisis eléctrica es producto de la sequía que es producto del capitalismo, asegura Chávez”

    Chavez assures that the electric crisis is a result of the drought which is a product of capitalism.

    Well that just about covers it. We can now stop talking about the electric crisis. Chavez has now spoken & all must listen.
