News from around the fascist robolution…

October 28, 2007

Getting ready to watch the Red Sox game, so in short you should learn about these events driving news in the fascist robolution::

—-Human Rights organization COFAVIC, warns
that it is the poor that has been affected the most by abuses when a
state of exception has been called in Latin America’s history.

—-Imagine
how bad things must be in terms of corruption and drug trafficking in
Venezuela, when former cheerleader of the revolution reporter Juan
Forero writes this piece
in today’s Washington Post. Just think, revolutionary military officers
like border postings because they can get rich and drug traffickers
have credentials from the intelligence police and the Ministry of
Finance. God help us form robolutionary destruction!

—-And
how about funny man the Minister of Culture, who incensed because
actress Fabiola Colmenares opposes the Constitutional reform and has
joined students demonstrations, thinks that maybe, just maybe,
people like her should not be hired by the Government. Calling her “a
minor personality of criollo fascism” because of her dissenting
position, the Minister proposes having a discussion as to whether
people like her should be hired in Government cultural projects. Jeez,
who is the fascist here? Does this remind you of Tascon/Chavez
database? Of course, its is the same discriminatory policy from a
well-known fascist Government.

—-And since we
are visiting the Ministry of Culture, how about Vice-Minister
criticizing the violence associated with the destruction of the
monument to honor Che Guevara? Wasn’t he the one that twenty years ago
was part of the guerrillas and was part of the group that kidnapped
William Neihous and was captured when he attempted to collect the
ransom?

\u003cdiv\> \u003c/div\>\u003cdiv\>—-And the Minister of the Interior and Justice joins the fascist chorus \u003ca href\u003d\”http://www.unionradio.com.ve/Noticias/Noticia.aspx?noticiaid\u003d220362\” target\u003d\”_blank\” onclick\u003d\”return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)\”\>as he tells us\u003c/a\> that the only way of expressing dissent against the Constitutional Reform is through the vote on Dec. 2\u003cfont size\u003d\”2\”\>\u003cspan style\u003d\”font-size:10px\”\>nd\u003c/span\>\u003c/font\>.

Where should I
start? First of all the violence is coming from pro-Government groups.
Second, has he read Article 350 of the Venezuelan Constitution? It
seems to call for civil disobedience precisely against his type of
authoritarian, fascist non-democratic behavior. Finally, what are we
supposed to vote on if the Government makes no effort to discuss what
is in the proposed Constitutional Reform? After all, the original 33
articles are now up to sixty-something, with most of the new ones being
added and discussed by small groups in smoke filled rooms.
Additionally, the Constitution is being violated in the way the reform
is being done. Shouldn’t the people have the right to do that?

But his best phrase had to be referring to the students:”They had the gall to challenge the authority of the State”

Yes, when the State takes away your rights, you have th RIGHT to challenge its authority, you fascist!

—-And
Chavez did not hold his Sunday variety show “Alo Presidente” today for
the second Sunday in a row because of health reasons. I guess this is
one case where I do not wish someone a speedy recovery…

More flowering!!!

October 28, 2007

This magnificent bunch is called Bulbophyllum Tridentatum from Asia. The whole bunch is maybe two and a half inches long. On the right is a close up of one flower.

This is a very delicate Cattelya Warnerii from Brazil, this variety is called Alfonso Gregory and is very finicky, I have had it for 15 years and has only flowered three times in irregular fashion, the plant looks very healthy.

Left: Blc. Morning Glory. Right: Another no name Percivaliana, bad shape, but I love the coloring of the lip.
