Red Skies At Night

In his strong bid to become the Muammar Qaddafi of South America, Hugo Chavez turned his attention to the cosmos.

Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela’s socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday.

“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.  He added that the West’s attacks on Libya were about water and oil reserves.Reuters

As a sad and puzzled world looks on, wondering what’s in that water he’s sipping.  Again.  Somehow if adds up that the socialist/narcissist leader invokes “the red planet.”

You might remember the last world leader to say something hideously ignorant about Mars: our own Dan Quayle, VP in the administration of George Bush I:

Mars is essentially in the same orbit… Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe. [via]

Trouble is, there’s genuine doubt he actually said that.  Wikiquote says he did, Snopes says he didn’t.  I hope he did: his only value and contribution to American arts and letters is his record of moronic utterances.  Unless you count his unique content to remain married to Marilyn, hideous and horsefaced, nasty as a burro, and stubborn as a jackass — so much so that when they stay in hotels, they’re given the bridle suite.

Nothing Chavez says, no matter how outrageous and moronic, surprises us.  He can’t help himself, and won’t allow anybody else to.  I look forward with delight to the moment when Daffy Qaddafi, forced to flee, contacts his fellow master of eructation is South America and gains entrance…..leading to years of entertaining pronouncements and babbling dialog.

Meanwhile, Chavez rabbits on  incoherently.  Keep it up, Hugo.  Today’s it’s on Mars, tomorrow it’s up Uranus.

    I served with Hugo Chavez, I know Hugo Chavez, Hugo Chavez is a friend of mine.

    Mr. Writer, you’re no Hugo Chavez

    Chavez, nuts as he is, runs the only country that supplies heating oil at extremely low cost to the poor in the United States via Citgo. The only ones. The rest of the gluttonous pigs like Exxon Mobil, BP etc. couldn’t care less. And he doesn’t wear funny hats ….often.

    • Hose B says:

      This is true, but place it in context, which is that Chavez does this for the sole purpose of embarrassing the American government. Which he does. The American approach to the problem is to offer subsidies to low-income families in order to purchase oil. I doubt this program will survive the new Congress’s budget cuts, though.

      I have family in Venezuela and have visited many times. Chavez is not nearly as generous to his own people, despite his lofty idealistic chatter. If he was not such a lunatic, Venezuela’s economy (with its oil production alone) would be in far better shape. He’s power-hungry, self-centered, and potentially dangerous, as he’s really too stupid to think through his own actions and policies. Look at how he’s playing footsie with Iran. Like Khaddafi, the only way to get rid of him is to overthrow him, or maybe drown him in the waters of Mars.

      • A True American Speaks says:

        Let Masspube and his evil friend Chavez drown in the came crude oil they see as largess to unwitting poor souls.

        Such misguided “share-the wealth” Socialists must be eliminated, put down like the social vermin they are.

  3. A True American Speaks says:

    What a disgusting comment. More liberal crap.

    Chavez hangs with Castro, Quadafi, Ahmadinejad & Kim Jung-Il and even worse kisses up to the Kennedy’s.

    If the poor want oil, let them buy it. If they freeze to death, it’s simple social Darwinism.

    We can’t let this great nation slip further into “creeping Socialism.”

    PLEASE reconsider your remarks or you’ll be branded as just another Obama lackey, running dog.

    “… much so that when they stay in hotels, they’re given the bridle suite.”

    Ooooh now that’s nasty.

  5. Mr. Mirth says:

    There is no water shortage. There is no oil shortage.
    There are simply to many users…THIN THE HERD!!!

    I can’t believe nitwits and knaves such as wacky Kadaffy, El Gordo Chavez, The Moron Bush, North Korea’s Mentally Il, whoever’s running Burma… these people get to run sovereign nations when there are such wise people whose outstanding talants are being squandered writing, reading and commenting on blogs such as this one.


    • A True American Speaks says:

      Unlike the evil Masspube and his Socialist ways, you are a fine American and a credit to your race.

      We need more like you.


    • Dr. Robert Bentley, M.D says:

      So by THIN THE HEARD you are endorsing mass genocide.

      You and “True American” should rot in hell.

    I think the comments to this post have been overtaken by wackos, or at least more wackos than usual.

    Nobody in his right mind believes the solution for overpopulation is genocide. Not even the ones who have committed genocide did so for that reason. That’s saying something.

    It’s also worth pointing out that there were food shortages severe enough to wipe out entire tribes, races, and geographical regions long before the population exploded. Even today, the reason the population starves in North Korea has nothing to do with the number of North Koreans — the only relevant number there is ONE — their maniac dictator.

    • Werner Schoenbrun says:

      Alle blogs werden durch wackos verwendet. Wenn Sie einen intelligenten Austausch von Meinungen erwarten, haben Sie Platz Unrecht.

      Blogs sind Platz für Idioten, die keinen Verstand und zu viel Zeit auf ihren Händen haben

  7. Gen. Richard Thomas says:

    The tribes and the poor of “undeveloped” nations have been starving for centuries. It’s their culture. Why waste resources now?

    I’m sick of “do gooders” trying to save the world where there is so much to be done in the USA…create jobs…reduce the deficit.

    I’m not a WACKO but a proud American who is serving my nation in Afganistan and has a brain.

    • John Birch says:

      Couldn’t agree with you more. History is clear about this, and demographic data accumulated and analyzed over the decades bears it out. I invite you to examine our conclusive findings and philosophical essays, available at no charge on our website. Bless you Sir, for your service to God and America.

  8. Gen. Richard Thomas says:

    Thank you Sir. All of in the Armed Forces appreciate a good sense of humor. I shall share this with my loyal men and women.

    You are a fine example of a true American patriot who cares.

  9. Rabbi Avi Goldschmidt says:

    Please my children, please. It saddens me to the core of my heart to see such rancor and bitterness. It’s as if a sword has been driven deep into my heart and brings me to tears.

    We are all children of God and not to besmirch his name must work together in brotherhood and peace. The poor and the men of gold all must answer to him.

    May these words of Moses bring you comfort.

    Pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

    Rabbi Avi
