Pugsley makes his move.

He wants to amend the Venezuelan constitution to lengthen presidential terms and do away with term limits, but he says he doesn't want to be known as Maximum Leader For Life Chavez.

(Also, judging from some of his other requests there, if you're unfortunate enough to have anything remotely asset-like in Venezuela, you might want to get it out. Now.)

Read that story yesterday and knew you'd have to write something about it.

Right on track to the abject poverty, starvin' chirren in the streets, skyrocketing crime and riots in Caracas.

Can't wait.

I hope Jimmy Carter sleeps well.

After all he blessed Chavez' "election" because he wanted to avoid "violence".

Jimma ALWAYS sleeps well after having turned over the citizens of any country to thugs. He's only sorry he hasn't been able to do the job here in the US yet.

Picture if you will a Presidential office, let's say in Venezuela. The private phone line rings in and is answered by Chavez, reclining in his favorite chair at his large and well polished desk.

The voice on the other end says, " Remember, Hugo, you're only President for life."

And then he is splattered all over that lovely desk before the sound of the window shattering and report from the rifle reaches any of his guards ears.

We don't do it much anymore, but back in the old days...

Why do we care?

He booted the oil companies, and now he is going to steal the foreign currencies from the bank. Any reasonable company/investor would have realized after he booted the oil companies he was going to nationalize anything.

Just let him plug along and eventually the military will overthrown him and we might have a bit more luck with the next dictator.
