Comrade Chavez to U.S. :"Go to Hell, Gringos"
Comrade Hugo Chavez is at it again. From FoxNews:
The National Assembly, which is controlled by the president's political allies, is expected to give final approval this week to what it calls the "enabling law," which would give Chavez the authority to pass a series of laws by decree during an 18-month period.
On Friday, U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey said Chavez's plans under the law "have caused us some concern."
Chavez rejected Casey's statement in his broadcast, saying: "Go to hell, gringos! Go home!"
This comes after Chavez's recent call to nationalize (confiscate) electrical and telecom industries as well as the additional powers sought by Comrade Chavez that Casey has critical of, and rightfully so.
If Chavez is granted the power to execute law by "presidential" decree, this will set him up in a position to rule Venezuela as he pleases. So much for Liberty and Democracy in Venezuela.
