[quote=Lischou]If you go back and check the posts, I never referred to anyone as evil.
I know you didn’t. But in the chain of events, you commented on a comment I made in response to someone who did do just that.
Bravo, Mike! Manipulated like a true politician. Use the part the you can twist without including other relevant information.
I apologise; my intention was not to manipulate. I don’t intend to be rude either - but in my experience most Americans don’t know that there are differences between Marxism, communism, and the various forms of socialism. I don’t doubt that some do. Nevertheless, Chavez isn’t a Marxist or a communist
it’s just irrelevant to the conversation or the point that Chavez does not have the *best interests of the Venezuelan people in mind. *
As that is your point, I agree it is irrelevant in this case, and apologise again.
I don’t necessarily agree with ‘Chavez does not have the *best interests of the Venezuelan people in mind.’ though
Now I realize that you would rather discuss non sequiturs instead of Chavez’ behavior due to the fact that his moves of the last four or five years are hard to defend (with a straight face, that is). Unless, you truely wish to ally yourself with oppression and tyranny.
To be fair, if you look back, we’ve discussed Chavez a number of times before. My views are probably laid out quite clearly.
Take care, am enjoying the give and take, time for bed though on this side of the pond…catch you tomorrow, maybe
Glad you’re enjoying it
