Hugo Chavez returns to Venezuela 'praying for life' (He's getting desperate alert)
Associated Press ^ | March 17, 2012

Posted on 03/17/2012 2:34:07 PM PDT by Zakeet

VENEZUELAN President Hugo Chavez has returned home nearly three weeks after undergoing cancer surgery in Cuba, saying he is praying for life.

After stepping off the plane, Chavez smiled and waved but also spoke soberly about the path ahead.

"I lift up a prayer ... in this battle for life," he said in a televised speech on the tarmac. "We will live and we will win."

[Snip]

Chavez has kept secret some details of his illness, such as the type of cancer, spurring speculation about how it might affect the country's political landscape.

His close allies have assured Venezuelans there is no Plan B.

[Snip]

He stepped down the stairs at the plane hand in hand with his daughter and his mother.

The president has said a February 26 surgery in Cuba removed a tumour from the same location in the pelvic region where another tumour was removed in June. He has said he is recovering smoothly.

I'm going to whip my rot-crotch because I'm praying to all of my all wise and powerful buddies, including: Fidel Fuzzy-face Castro, Jimmah the Idiot Carter, Dan Fake but Accurate Blather, Sean Dumber than a Bucket of Rocks Penn, Barry who Walks on Water Obozo, and the entire remaining Kennedy Klan!

I remember a few weeks back, his remark that he was praying to the traditional gods of Venezuela and I thought, dude, you’re cooked.

Understandable, given that he opted for the Cuban Health Care Plan. It's certainly a little late to be praying for common sense.

He must have been getting a real good whiff of sulfur lately if he’s actually praying.

Hahahahaha, that is good. I bet no reporter has the balls to asked him if he has smelled any sulfer yet?

Well that should reassure everyone.

We assure the people of Venezuela that if dear leader Chaves dies chaos will reign

i don’t wish ill to anyone. I just don’t want him to have political power, anywhere.

On a different note, I think it’s interesting that he has had multiple surgeries etc. for what appears to be an aggressive recurrent cancer. In the socialist ‘paradises’ that he and his buds are pushing, I’m pretty sure heroic medical measures would not be paid for or supported. Those discussions have already started here in the US, and rationing based on prognosis is already in place in many European countries with nationalized health care. Socialism is what socialist leaders want for everyone but themselves.

The Russian surgical team that worked on him gave him 2 years or less. From the looks of his prednisone puffed face I’d say way less.

Remember socialism is the transition phase to communism.

During socialism there is a small elite that guides the process to communism, where there will be no need for leaders anymore, everyone will do everything.

Of course the proletariat buys this because they will be better off and have more control and power. the current ruling socialist elites do not, and know they will never get to communism, because they want to stay in power and have a life like a king over their prole subjects. Any questioning, “I do it for the state and the goal of communism, comrade. Now do not question me or my loyalty again.”

Sorry Hugo. That cold breath you feel on the back of your neck is the Grim Reaper.

Time to get right with Jesus, Hugo. Get down on your knees in front of God's Altar and pray for forgiveness

If I could go back in time I would make it a point to drag the lazy POS Marx out of his paid for digs and make him work for a living.

The best route to a humane world is spiritual. Human beings have to make voluntary choices to be charitable and not to be selfish. It can not be legislated. One huge hole in Marxist philosophy is the idea that only the haves can be selfish. The fact is that selfishness occurs at all levels of the socioeconomic ladder. It is no less selfish to sit on one’s butt and expect others to take care of you through their tax money than it is for a corporate executive to want a bonus or to look for a tax loophole. Selfishness is ubiquitous in human society, and all that politicians do is play to the selfishness of one group over another.

Marx was bitter, lazy, and selfish. He appeals to people with the same attributes.

I was reading an oncologists remarks on Hugo’s 2nd cancerous growth in the same region they removed the primary one less than one year. The doctor didn’t think the long term prognosis was all that favorable. Who knows and we shall see-— but Hugo is living on borrowed time now.

"I lift up a prayer ... in this battle for life," he said in a televised speech on the tarmac. "We will live and we will win."

God-hating socialist who places the state above the church and faith along with all those other quaint little things like "freedom" finally discovers God?

I suppose he's still referring to himself as "we" since he still embraces the thought that he's "legion".

To whom do Communists pray? Jane Fonda once called on her listeners to pray that some day America will become a Communist country.

Well lets hope Hugo gets right with God-—although he’s been reading books by one of his favorite authors Nietzsche
who was somewhat of an atheist albeit not in the rabid sense.
