We have one effecyive weapon against Chavez: economic power. We should prove what links we can, expose them and declare sanctions and a general disengagement from Venezuela. We should stop buying oil and other commodities from them. They need us far more than we need them and as long as that is so we have the upper hand. But the upper hand is of no account if you refuse to wield it.

What is so hard tounderstand is the support Chavez has in this country by people who are supposed to be for human rights and self-determination for all. Chavez is a dictator in the old mold, but because he is a socialist and because he vents against the United States he is the darling of the elite. It is hard to fathom how such a crude, piggish individual can get so popular, but then jsut look at Castro and Che! There are Che! nighties for kids yet. Too bad no one has come up with Mao nighties with little red stars. Maybe progressive nighties? I'm going to think about that. Progressive nighties. Marx, Said, Sartre, Mao, Alfred E. Newman, Bob, Mohammed, Yasser Arafat, all together at last! While supplies last, friends.
