    Chavez says capitalism may have ended life on Mars

    (Reuters) - 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 has consistently blamed capitalism for all the problems in the world, but this may be the first time he's blamed it for problems on OTHER worlds.

    can't really blame him, he's just repeating what Sean Penn told him.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I guess you can blame capitalism for the destruction of planet Headbanger too, which is where Chavez actually lives.

    I liked the one where he blamed earthquakes on GW Bush. Chavez is comedy gold.

    Oh come now, everyone knows the Mars suffered effects of over use of fossil fuels, which led to run away Global Warming, so in a way you could blame it capitalism.

    But then again it might have been a pandemic, they might have picked up here on visit. Like in the movies, they pickup a common cold and the marstranaouts take it back and they all die.

    This all happened a million years ago. The Face on Mars was to tell future visitors that they were once there.

    I think he is right.

    Life On Mars was a short lived TV show, while interesting, it showed its hand too soon.

    Capitalism killed Life On Mars because they couldn't sell any more advertising after nobody wanted to watch it.
