Chavez Might Be Crazy!

Any on the topic of very strange quotes comes one from Hugo!

“I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet,” Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.

Chavez, who also holds capitalism responsible for many of the world’s problems, warned that water supplies on Earth were drying up.

“Careful! Here on planet Earth where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts,” Chavez said, sipping from a glass of water.  At least he is smart enough to be willing to admit there might be life on other planet?

  1. He’s still much smarter than Bush ever was. And he’s smart enough to recognize what a universally-destructive force Capitalism is. It’s killed hundreds of millions, and enslaved/oppress far more than that. Poverty only exists because of Capitalism; the concept that one person should have more of the wealth/resources available than another person is inherently destructive.

  2. I will agree with you on most of your points relating to capitalism but like the justice system which is very flawed. It is still the best system in practice.

    And yes, George Bush was hilarious! I like his comment about border relations between Canada and Mexico!

  3. If you guys were from Venezuela, like me, you’d know why this guy is derranged and Bush is my hero… Either way, Chavez IS already crazy…

    I’m looking forward to Obama installing socialism/communism in the US.

    Then I can stay home and watch Jerry, eat chips, drink beer and still get my fair share of wealth and resources!!!

    You’re going to have a long wait, because Obama doesn’t have a socialist/communist bone in his body. He’s pure moderate conservative. The Socialist Party of America has thoroughly rejected him and his principles; especially his choice to let the selfish Republicans remove the essential Single Payer Option from Healthcare Reform.

    Crazy conservatives like you are so amusing; anything less than lunatic fringe conservatism is “liberal” or “socialist” or “communist” to you. I guarantee, you have no idea whatsoever what socialism or communism really are.

    @Admin Guy: There is a better system; an equal balance between capitalism and socialism. Canada is much closer to that ideal than America, and it routinely ranks much higher that the US on all positive bellwethers. Even troubled as it is by unconscionable cuts by the Conservative Party, the Canadian Universal Healthcare System ranks much higher than America’s in all areas except quality of care for people who can afford the highest premiums.
