GOOD BYE, HUGO CHAVEZ


One of the few world leaders to recognize and call George W. Bush for what he really was, is gone.  While I wasn't the hugest fan of Hugo Chavez's policies, I was even less impressed by the U.S. media's coverage of him.  His democratically-elected voice was a welcome one, oftentimes talking about policies on poverty and resisting unfairly controlled resources in the region.  This is, of course, Colby Dong Il riding off from Chavez' memory into the sunset, but no one has made a Colby Chavez so work with what you get, just like a democratically-elected president (read: not dictator) from an oild-rich and developing country. Cancer at 50? I have my doubts. . .

  2. Sorry but yes he was a dictator, I came from my own experience with my family, my grandfather was a military in the highest position and worked with him for a while, when he say he wasn't supporting his idead, he told him to pack his stuff and go, after some time, other military people go throught the same thing, they got together and do a formal protest in a place that lasted kinda long time (a year maybe a lil more, i was like in 6 grade when that happend), we suport him, go to the hotel where him and the other where staying, it was pretty pacific, the regiment that was putting them thought was not fair at all. So the thing goes down when he contract some people to go and go around like they belonged to the place and shoot and stuff, everybody part of that protest go and hide, becuase they where now that they wheren't together and people wheren't there supporting them (a lots of people it was crazy) it turns all into a witch hunt, some "friend" of us that support us during that time, knew where he was hiding and call the authorities and they got him in jail, he spend 8 years of my life inside that hell, but not one going to 3 jails and one of those where tipical jailhouse with thugs, rapist and stuff, the other two where more calm places where they put the "political prisioners" as they are called, he was in that place apart from me since 7 grade (I was about 12 or 13 years old) he lost a lot of things of my family, my graduation, the born of my cousins, the wedding of my aunt and my father, he lost a part of my life that I will not get back, that could have been better but it wasn't, during that time they got nothing to let him inside that hell, cause even there was the protest that wasn't enough to put him in that for long time as maybe he wanted, they put in him the change of some bombs about a military situation in Colombia, wich he didn't do at all, he was sentenced 10 years after 8 years in jail and going to trials, we didn't even get to discuss if they could quit those 8 years he was in there so he got like 2 left, but thanks to a protest of some college students about letting some political prisiones out of the jails, he got out, and he is now with us but still in a very stick stuff, he goest to sleep in a jail during the week and he can spend the weekend here where we live, he only can move betwen 2 states the one where we live and the one where the jail where he sleeps is (and is a typical jailhouse not another very secure one) he is trying to ask for permision since last year (when he got out) to add one more state where my father and my aunts and his other grandchildrens lives, but they still not get that and even there was something about him getting out finally all early last year and he didn't get out, he change, that time of his life change him so much from what I know and he is also very surprise about the person I am without growing up around him, he is not like a father to me, he is my father, I live with him and my grandmother, they are both my mom and dad, because my dad is too young to take all the responsability and my mom is not in the picture since I was 3 months old.

    1. And Talking about outside my experience, this country is a hell, there's killing everyday, all is turning into a big hole cause the highways are so bad made it that the cars are all fucked up all the time, buildings are awful constructed, the recurses are less everyday, people protest in a very formal pacific way he got people to go and hurt them or even try to kill them, theres a lot of people in jail in the same situation as my grandfather that doesn't deserve to be in it for 30 years some with less, but those are the worst ones, theres always some stroke of state, where people try to protest and they got killed by his people, we got two chances to get him out, but always the elections are all fucked up and cheated, cause they know they will win because everybody in the electoral body is on his side, he treated the life of one of his contenders one of those years if he didn't give up and this maybe he didn't do it, but his people, I was with some friends helping them to sell stuff outside the places where the voting was happening and his people come around with motorcycles shoorting fireworks and stuff and we got back, maybe they got even guns too, becuase there where a lot of pictures the day before of his people in social networks taking pictures with them and the day before the elections there where a lot of dead people, he always talked trash about church and blame usa and other countrys about the bad situation when he was always giving away money for other countrys instead of his and the oil, he take out the left overs of Simon Bolivar or liberator and the most influenced been in this country to god know why and he always tells people that been rich is bad when he and his family spend a lot of money on own stuff for them, his slogan before he got cancer use to be "homeland, socialims or DEAD, we will win", after he got cancer he take out the "dead" part but he have it, he wanted in every way to win even that brings dead, i'm sorry but he was bad, awful and evil, he doesn't deserve the people to feel sorry for him.

  4. Colby, I live you but please don't voice your opinion when you know nothing about it! Chacez at the very beginning was a promising president, after 2 years in power, around the year 2000, his true colors star to show! You call him democrate? Let me tell, in his 15 years in the goverment, he cheat a lot of times to stay in power. That's not democracy. And he is not a dictator? Calling people horrible name and degrading them just because they oppose him, getting people in jail for years for calling him out, robing BILLIONS of dollars of the country and many many more stuff. George Bush wasn't a great president, but compare to Chavez, I rather live in the US during his presidency that in Venezuela right now!

    And one last thing, his so called policys about proverty are pure smokes and mirros. He was a normal person when he was elected, not rich not poor, but now his family is value at 2 Billions dollars, he traveled all over the world on his private plane, wore designer suits and his kids took avantage of that. So he was not poor. And his you want to live it for yourslef, I invited you to come here. You can stay at my house is you like.
