People thought I was kidding when I said that Chavez was planning to celebrate the ten years of his program Alo President with a four day program. Well, it has started. To top it all off, it is not Alo Presidente, which is carried only by his party’s TV channel VTV, but it is in “Cadena”. For those who still don’t know what that means, it means that all TV stations have to broadcast him (chained!) as long as the “Cadena” is on. Democratic, no? Of course, there is no right by any opposing group to speak afterwards and reply or anything like that. That would be destabilizing propaganda.
If Chavez does indeed speak for four days in a row and keeps the forced broadcast on, it will be another milestone in his dictatorship. The Devil has no plan to post until the Cadena ends. If it goes into VTV alone, that is fine, only fanatics and empty minded people can watch VTV for more than five mniutes.
Chavez began his program criticizing the garbage problem in the West of Caracas. Funny, his party has ruled over that district for the last ten years. What’s his excuse? He also complained about the plants that are not watered. Maybe he can have cameras installed all over the country so that he can report all the things that don’t work to his subordinates. He may also notice that way that blackouts are common and maybe he can call the police every time he notices a crime on camera. Can you imagine the cops laughing at him when he calls and asks them to go over and check the crime out?
What he is saying is a tribute to the incompetence and failure of his Government.
My five minutes are up!
