    S'okay. As good excuse as any to crack open a beer whether it's an accurate story or not.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Didn't have time to discuss it at length, but he thinks that Chavez will be gone in the not too distant future -- not having anything to do with his health problems.
    And what business was this?

    You do realize its pretty much exactly like an executive order. Also Chavez is not the only and first Venezuelan President to rule by decree. Carlos Andrez Perez used in in 1974. In 1984 Jaime Lusinchi used it. And Ramon Jose Velasquez used in in 93.... Also its in the Venezuelan consitution and has been there sense 1961... Also the national assembly has to pass the Presidents request to rule by decree..

    I hope that Chavez is OK. He has every reason to dislike the US as they tried to organize a coup against him (12. Bush Administration Behind Failed Military Coup in Venezuela | Project Censored)

    I don't recall what the father's business was. The guy I was working with worked for a TV station that Chavez shut down because they weren't quite pro-Chavez enough.

    Or possibly drummed up support for an illegal coup? Or possibly qualified as seditious in a legal sense. You do realize no stations in the free world allow the type of speech they had on their tv stations.
