While we’re at it tonight there were two interesting points about Mr. Chavez in the news today.

Chavez to expel foreign critics

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has vowed to expel foreigners who publicly criticise him or his government.

“No foreigner can come here to attack us. Anyone who does must be removed from this country,” he said during his weekly TV and radio programme.


The second article was about the idea of removing term limits which are presently mandated by Venezuelan Law.

Venezuela term limits for others, not president, says Chavez

Chavez said during his regular Sunday broadcast that allied political parties had asked that the move to lift the two-term limit on elected office apply to lower-level posts as well.

“No, no, no, no and a thousand times, no,” said Chavez. “If there is to be continuous re-election, or whatever they call it, it should only be for the president of the republic, not for governors and mayors.”


Man that Duck is really starting to waddle!

  1. Chavez rule is “Do what I tell you, you can’t do what I do, I’m the President, it’s all difrent for me and my friends and family”
    I want YOU to be poor… stop looking at my watch, and bracelet and shoes, and food, and travel, and my family. No no no no no!
