There are definitely problematic neural connections in the brains of chavistas

These days the mood of chavistas seem to be oscillating dangerously between shit scared and batshit crazy.  If you forgive me the vulgarity.  My S.O. and his co workers of a ministry that shall remain nameless were forced to go to yesterday's April 13 march, which apparently, free subway and all, was not as spectacular as previous editions.  Rain?  Fatigue at the ever repeated rittornello? Public workers diving to escape into the first subway station they could manage to do?  He still managed to send me a few pictures and I chose two that truly represent how out there in space chavismo is navigating.

Supporting Qaddafi

"Murderers of Libya's people, Obama and Clinton"

No surprise there, except that apparently the argument has caught on among some of the faithful.  I am not going to bother a counter argumentation with the intelligent and well educated readers of this blog who know better.  The idea is here to show you how knee jerk primitive the street slogans have become among these people.  What is really scary, if you ask me, is that the billboard carrier might actually believe 100% that crap.

By the way, the intense red shirts are of a recent distribution to the attendees, for free of course.  You can probably find in the crowd a few people that did not wear them and have them thrown over their shoulders.  Then again I might be wrong as so many ministries have now mandatory emblazoned red polo shirts.

Let him work!

Billboards like this one seem to be the latest slogan that the "Miraflrores sala situcional" could come up with, a rewarming of what was used in 2004-2005.  Then I still had plenty of chavistas leaving comments and I had to explain to them more than once that since 1999 for all his problems Chavez had had already significant stretches of time to rule, in particular  from July 2000 until December 2001.  Today offering such an excuse, that we do not let Chavez work and hence the country's problem, is simply an insult to our intelligence.  I mean, since October 2004 Chavez has not had anything physically or legally stopping him to do whatever he wants!!!!! 

But I suppose that among the chavismo lumpen that slogan might work still, up to a point, or at least until they can come up with a better excuse for the mess the country has become.  Though it also works among some folks that normally one would not place in any lumpen whatsoever.  Juan Carlos Monedero in an interview to Colombia's El Espectador advances that argument, that Chavez has had "only 6 years" of real government....

For someone that is back teaching at a Spanish campus it is simply incredible to say such an idiocy.  He has an example in Spain itself, of incredible changes that happened in LESS than the 6 years he mentions, namely the 5 years of Adolfo Suarez who took Spain from Franco to democracy, including drafting a new constitution and resiting a coup.

But Juan Carlos Monedero was a mercenary of Chavez and he probably would still be paid by Chavez had he not coined the term "hiperlider" meaning that Chavez was doing too much.  Kind of a contraction in terms to his interview title, if you ask me.
