Sounds like the United States. Fox News is the only station that speaks out against US govenrment doings.

No wonder the Democrats look up to Hugo as a hero. Next Beck will be arrested.

Russia is a key part of BRIC and will partner with other BRIC members and key Latin American countries to counter the $TRILLION war machine of America. Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world and will make $TRILLION deals with the BRIC countries that have a goal of reducing human misery by increasing social programs that reduce poverty, illiteracy, hunger, and increase FREE healthcare and FREE education. Do you hear Obama, Clinton, Bush??? Only ALBA the FREE alternative to the global conquest policies of the EMPIRE and it's occupied countries of Honduras and Colombia. Brazil a key pat of BRIC has purchased $11 BILLION of military hardware to protect itself from the EMPIRE.

I had a dream! Obama, Chavez and Correa were vanished in the oil spill in Louisiana! In my dream people were cheering happily and free again to elect a good president who cares for their people.
People has the right to speak out and to express their opinions. It was a beautiful dream!
The cruel reality is different for people without freedom of expression in Venezuela or Ecuador. People are unhappy but they fear these two monsters.

Chavez..........is the nightmare of the 21 century for South America! Correa follows him...

Obama is another bad dream, but for now I stick to the theme of the this blog.

I imagine your one of the tea party folks, yes? I suppose you won't accept an unemployment check if unemployed and I bet you won't accept Social Security when you retire? And your one of these lucky people who HAVE health insurance? Lucky you, and to hell with your fellow Americans who have no health insurance and can't afford insurance....let them die of cancer or whatever else that ails them.

I also suspect your happy that after 8 years of the Bush administration and spending 10 billion a month to two wars, no WMD, and thousands of young americans dying for what? is also okay...
And that would have been more than okay with you........were you silent when Bush took us to 2 wars? Or the amount of money that was and is being spent? So Obama should not have done nothing to save the financial system, the US would have ended up like the collapse of Russia!

There is still plenty of freedoms here, some you don't even enjoy anymore in the US! Had to get a drivers license lately? Thanks to the Patriot Act you need 2 photo IDs! Don't have two? your SOL!

You know nothing about Ecuador, do some research. Some things are changing but people can still
protest and fight for what is right here. Hugo and Raffy are alike in many ways, especially they are two people with one (tiny) brain. Raffy is like Hugo's little puppy and comes when told. Hugo however, has an army to do his bidding and suppress his people, while Correa does not, in fact the military does not like Correa!

Dear Bill, no amount of money could prevent Venezuela from getting its ass kicked by "The Empire" if and when they need it, ask for it or beg for it.

Sincerely,
The Emperor

Dear Latino-Gringo y mis otro amigos y amigas,

First, I am no Tea Party type and I have zero love or respect for this President of ours. And, by the way, neither does any world leader of any country. I am only surprised he hasn't invited his pals from Caracas, Quito and Tehran for dinner yet.

Second, I am glad to read that some things in Ecuador are improving. Especially a major water project along the coast near Manta. The people and the government will benefit by such projects.

Third, The major problemo in South/Central America contiues to be the Chavez Chaos. As I write this there is a growing tension between Venezuela and Colombia which will threaten the stability of the entire region. If you think there have been too many innocent people killed in Afghanistan just wait till this kind of war comes to your barrios. And it will. Es cierto. I hope and pray I am wrong, and may God help us all if I am right.

Ps, my Latino-gringo amigo, the Patriot Act has prevented hundreds more terrorist attacks on Gringo Land and you don't hear about this because even the idea could spread fear and chaos. I'd be glad to give 10 photos for a driver's license if it helps prevent an attack on America that kills thousands which would include many of my family and my friends and perhaps, may God forbid, my Latino-gringo amigo.
Sincerely de su amigo, Su Gente
Ernesto
