Skip to comments.The Declaration of Cumaná: Capitalism 'threatens life on the planet'
Posted on 04/24/2009 8:05:06 PM PDT by Crazieman
We, the Heads of State and Government of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela, member countries of ALBA, consider that the Draft Declaration of the 5th Summit of the Americas is insufficient and unacceptable for the following reasons:
- The Declaration does not provide answers to the Global Economic Crisis, even though this crisis constitutes the greatest challenge faced by humanity in the last decades and is the most serious threat of the current times to the welfare of our peoples.
- The Declaration unfairly excludes Cuba, without mentioning the consensus in the region condemning the blockade and isolation to which the people and the government of Cuba have incessantly been exposed in a criminal manner.
For this reason, we, the member countries of ALBA believe that there is no consensus for the adoption of this draft declaration because of the reasons above stated, and accordingly, we propose to hold a thorough debate on the following topics:

I didn’t realize Honduras has gone over to the dark side now too.
They worry too much. All our people know Hondurans like those cheap Cuban whores.
Cuba had 50 years in isolation, to “prove” Communism worked. Of course, it did NOT. Not in Cuba, or ANYWHERE else! What makes these lefties so INSANE???
Ohhhhh noooooes! Not the dreaded ‘CAPITALISM’?????
What to do....what to do???????
My ‘Spidey Senses’ are tingling!
Send up the ‘Batman Signal’ right away!
Of course fitting the square peg of rhetoric into the round hole of reality can't possibly work.
A new Socialism for the 21st Century? The image at the link is the perfect metaphor for the sad actors in a banana republic comedy movie; a bad parody of the Soviet Union of 90 years ago.
I started to quote their stated goals, but I couldn't stomach the puerile mix of lashing out at the hand that feeds it, and delusional goals that can never be achieved; The only thing that can save those poor countries: a solid, educated and motivated middle class, and a system of government based on merit not the destructive two class system.
At least in the old two-class system the upper rulers were, in fact, educated. The new system is long on incomprehensible rhetoric and short on actual achievement. Take away their imaginary enemy and they are purposeless and helpless.
What will be their sad condition when the vehicle of their hatred, oil, runs out? I shudder to think.
Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela - Good Lord!
What if these economic power houses embargo us! Doomed.
Oops, wrong Alba.
