118. Chavez? I Know This ...
I do not live in Venezuala nor do I know anyone who does. I also do not trust what my media pumps down my throat and view everything with a grain of suspicion.
I also know this.
In New England people would freeze without heating oil, literal dead frozen. As the price of oil has risen, so equaly has federal fuel assistance fallen ... Bush's way of saying screw the peons, let them suffer.
Here's what I know about Chavez.
Through his actions Peoples Energy has the ability to offer discounted oil assistance to the truly needy. That is something he gets points for even though I recognize it is a publicity stunt.
But ya know what.
Thats way more caring about the common man than our own glorified leadership cooks up in an entire lifetime.
So who should we be more concerned about?
