President Hugo Chavez Has Died
(Excerpt) Read more at ap.org ...
Sean Penn: “Today, the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion. I lost a friend I was blessed to have.” He also says Venezuela and its revolution “will endure under the proven leadership of Vice-President Maduro”.
Well, if I hadn't been a young skull full of mush at the time, I probably would have been well-informed enough to get the joke. Thanks for filling some context that's been missing for decades.
She has more than one...
Ditto's and he'll be there to welcome Fidel C. other miscreants.
Sean Penn must be devastated because Hugo was his communist idol. To hell with them both.
I was just a youngster at the time, and had no idea who Generalissimo Francisco Franco was, but I was keen enough to pick up on the negative slant from SNL, so I naturally disliked the man.
Ain't leftist propaganda wonderful?
Are you kidding? Sean Penn and the Hollywood crowd would burn the SNL set down and most of the SNL cast would help.
Maybe the good lords finally beginning to clean house and rid the world of these dictators.
You wont be missed football head.
Ya, sure that’s why Obama Won?
I join in prayer for his loved ones as they deal with his homegoing!
Joe Kennedy must be in tears.
Another commie dead. I hope the "people" down there have good sense about them now and effect change for their own behalf's, not in what the "state" can give them.
He was a president? I thought he was a dictator?
"The memory of the righteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will rot." (Proverbs 10:7)
Needless to say, Hugo Chavez along with his name will rot, just as that of Joseph Stalin's has. It is appropriate that this evil, godless dictator died on the same day as good old, bad old "Uncle Joe".
LOL ... caption: “Stuck on Stupid” :-)
Eww. I just grossed myself out.
At least those T’s would actually be appropriate at THIS occasion!
Another dead dictator, good! There is nothing to cheer about with this thug. Who gives a rat’s ass about this,
only hollywood. Good riddance!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LOL...Sean Penn must be crying his little bitty balls out. Thanks for the good news.
here’s my laugh again and I hope DU libtards read this: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH dead commie
Hugo will be smelling the sulphur for all eternity...
take Joe Kennedy with you....
Amen to that!
Have you seen those despicable commercials where Joe Kennedy proudly proclaims that he is able to bring "Hugo Chavez' oil to the US to heat the homes of the poor"?! I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that ad recently!
My husband and I continue to boycott CITGO gas stations. Not always easy - we are surrounded by them here in The People's Republik of Connecticut...
Drudge got it right:
I wonder what Joe Kennedy II is going to do for a living now? I’m not saying Joe Kennedy II is a thug, he is more a parasite, with thuggish impulses. If he had any power, he would be a thug. His “Citizen’s Energy” company provides low cost oil to low income people in eastern Massachusetts and as of 2011, his salary was $596,988.
The company’s ads feature Joe dragging a hose to some old lady’s house in South Boston or Ravvear (sometimes mistakenly spelled Revere) and include a shout out to Hugo and Citgo. A bizarre and unedifying spectacle, all in all. I wonder what visitors to Boston make of them? Citizens Energy was able to provide this bounty through the fickle beneficence of Hugo Chavez.
The Boston skyline is forever defaced with the Citgo sign, which was declared a landmark and cannot be taken down. (Were there Yankee moles on the Boston Landmark Commission?) It is difficult to see from any place except Memorial Drive on the north bank of the Charles and pre-2005 television coverage of the Red Sox. Since the Green Monster seats were installed, it is no longer visible in TV coverage of shots over the Green Monster, fans must content themselves with old shots of Bucky Dent’s 1978 pop fly home run.
At the 2:05 mark:
The Citgo sign is no where nearly as large or prominent “in person”, this is an example of the optical phenomenon of foreshortening. How many Mets fans remember Serval Zippers?
I know — I just don’t learn my lesson!
Have you been watching “THE BIBLE” on the History Channel?
I heard they had 13 million viewers for their first show last Sunday (which is huge ratings for cable).
should have looked at how they handled the “generalisimo”-
Almost killed castro- finally flew in experts from Europe
to stabilize castro- at best they left castro-half dead,
and mostly bed ridden- that picture of chavez and castro-
Who would of thunk- castro would be saying-”yeah, hugo-
come to my wonderful doctors to be cured!”
There's a CITGO station about .2 miles from my house that consistently sells diesel for far less than any other station I've seen.However,I avoid it like the plague for the very same reason that I avoid buying products made in China whenever possible.
Will Obama attend the funeral?
Obama (Thinking. Difficult for a phony.): “Where’s Dr. Frankenstein when we need him?”
The Friend of liberals: Sean Penn, Danny Glover,
Cindy Sheehan, Harry Belafonte, Kevin Spacey, Jesse Jackson....they will be with their friend one day and all can st around the fire and talk ofold times..The Scumbags..
Do you think Obama will cancel one of his golf games to attend Hugo Chavez funeral?
Chavez directly criticized the President last December and said he was showing "aggression and disrespect."
The President disliked Chavez because he hoped that Chavez would work with him, but Chavez was uncooperative with him on Iran and defiant in terms of Libya and Syria.
I highly doubt the President would bother to show up at his funeral.
I for one think all of that was show it was a show..They loved one another..
I for one think all of that was show it was a show..They loved one another as most communist love one another..
Another tin pot communist dictator bites the dust...great!
Unfortunately, I can't say 'Hugo, Go to Hell', because you are there now!!
So he died in Cuba and the spin doctors are milking it. Got it. Typical communist rhetoric. I wonder if that will happen in this country? Oh. Wait. Thank God we don’t have a President for Life.
....just wondered if it was really true that he was really a friend to ALL the poor of his country....
....and that they ALL loved him as was being reported...
No. Really? You thought that could be true?
His personal estate is worth $2 Billion, (with a B), and Venezuela has more poverty now than it did 14 years ago......follow the money.
You're very welcome for the link. I've started watching historical documentaries on youtube and netflix. "Good Old Joe" knew exactly what he was doing, but too many people didn't see it.
They can't use the same old tricks over and over again IF we remember the last time.
That's what History is for!
I don't know if Chavez will rot in hell, but he will suffer unbelieveable pain & torment, knashing of teeth and roasting in hell. In the Bible account of Lazarus (who went to heaven) & the rich man who went to hell, he begged the Lord to send down Lazarus just to give him a tip of Lazarus wet finger upon his tongue. I'm sure that Chavez is feeling this same torment & pain, as well as 0dumb0 some day.! Don't know if he will rot in hell
I’m sure he’s smelling sulfur now.
And here 0dumb0 is the best friend that commies like Chavez has in the U.S. May 0dumb0 roast in hell alongside his bosom tyrant commie buddies.
“just wondered if it was really true that he was really a friend to ALL the poor of his country, and that they ALL loved him as was being reported...”
In much the same way that Cuba is a worker’s paradise and Saddam Hussien received a legit 100% of the vote in his last election.
Right from the beginning I was really asking a rhetorical question, but it went over your heads, sarcasm was NOT appreciated, I do NOT have manure for brains
Was trying to figure out what on earth CNN had to gain by suggesting he was loved by ALL the poor, who did they think they would fool.
You dont think I have ever heard of Dictators claiming that they got 100% of the vote, no I did not just fall off turnip truck, perhaps I could have worded it better
Yes they have played down the wrongs of Cuban leaders as well over the years
