8 or so bees in my bonnet

[rex_the_runt] how is life in venezuala?
[rex_the_runt] are you feeling the american pinch?
(23:57) [RichardIII] American pinch? I am feeling the Fidel Pinch
[rex_the_runt] surely fidel's on your side?
(23:58) [RichardIII] Not on my side
(23:58) [RichardIII] but in Chavez´s
[rex_the_runt] how are they restricting your freedom?
(0:00) [RichardIII] well, private property is sistematically threatened
(0:00) [RichardIII] Inflation is reaching 20%
[rex_the_runt] property is theft dontcha know....
(0:01) [RichardIII] Are you a communist?
[rex_the_runt] i have communist sympathies, yes. certainly in south america
(0:03) [RichardIII] but not there?
(0:03) [RichardIII] hehe
[rex_the_runt] nicuragura, el salvador etc....
(0:03) [RichardIII] Chavez is destroying the economy
[rex_the_runt] chance would be a fine thing
(0:04) [RichardIII] if we had no petroleum...
(0:04) [RichardIII] it is a complex subjetc
[rex_the_runt] chavez is battling against a system railed against him
(0:05) [RichardIII] he is just doing the same that the others did
(0:05) [RichardIII] but eroding democracy
[rex_the_runt] the us can up the inflation rate whenever chavez doesn't play ball
(0:05) [RichardIII] he is a lousy player
[rex_the_runt] they tried to kill him
(0:05) [RichardIII] This is going to become the next cuba
(0:06) [RichardIII] Not really
(0:06) [RichardIII] that´s what he says
(0:06) [RichardIII] It´s true there was a coup
(0:06) [RichardIII] But not a militar one
[rex_the_runt] oust him at least
(0:06) [RichardIII] And he came back in three days, like Jesus
(0:06) [RichardIII] hahaha
[rex_the_runt] america loves a dictatorship
[rex_the_runt] especially in south america
(0:07) [RichardIII] yes, I know
(0:07) [RichardIII] but the truth is
[rex_the_runt] then surely he's the lesser of 2 evils?
(0:07) [RichardIII] no
(0:08) [RichardIII] look
(0:08) [RichardIII] for all Chavez says about Bush
(0:08) [RichardIII] the truth is that Chavez needs American dollars
(0:08) [RichardIII] we are not less dependant
(0:08) [RichardIII] if USA stops buying us oil, then we are screwed
(0:09) [RichardIII] because we don´t have a diversified economy
(0:09) [RichardIII] sorry about my English
(0:10) [RichardIII] so, actually America is financing the revolution...
[rex_the_runt] your english is good. but chavez also has the US over a barrel, so to speak, they need his oil
(0:10) [RichardIII] yes, but the way things are going here
(0:11) [RichardIII] we are even more dependant
(0:11) [RichardIII] now, that we were before
(0:11) [RichardIII] than*
[rex_the_runt] you should sell oil to cuba too
(0:12) [RichardIII] I mean, since Chavez is destroying the private sector, we have to import food and almost all goods
(0:12) [RichardIII] if the gringos stop buying us oil, we return to the cave-age
(0:13) [RichardIII] we don´t sell oil to cuba, we give oil to cuba, freely, as a gift
[rex_the_runt] i suspect the us is complicit in this
[rex_the_runt] they have serious trade clout
(0:14) [RichardIII] they are not saints
[rex_the_runt] regime change.....
[rex_the_runt] i like chavez because he has the balls to stand up to america

it's good to get perspectives from venezuelans and others of the region, because it feels like most everything that reaches the US, pro or against chavez, is some kind of propaganda. suppose it all is. mixed feelings seem the most realist. it's hard to help being gratified by the anti-buffoon buffoon who spoofs our highest hated executive. thanks!
