Hugo Chavez, Cindy Sheehan Highlight Socialist Forum (NewsMax, 1/23/06)

The Bush-bashing "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan will join leading third-world America-hater Hugo Chavez on Tuesday, when the two team up to address the 6th World Social Forum in Caracas, Venezuela.

Sheehan and Chavez will headline a list of yet-to-be-announced speakers from places like Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Colombia, according to the web site VHeadline.com.

Amazon pipeline plan fuels concern (Al-Jazeera 25 January 2006)
Environmentalists have been caught off guard by South American leaders' plans to build a massive natural gas pipeline through the Amazon rain forest from Venezuela to Argentina.

The plan, unveiled earlier this month by the region's left-leaning leaders, was short on details, but one thing seemed certain: The $20 billion pipeline would destroy part of the environmentally sensitive Amazon, the world's largest wilderness.

Environmentalists contend construction of the network of pipelines would pollute waterways, destroy trees and create roads through the jungle that could draw ranchers and loggers.

At a meeting in Brazil's capital in mid-January, the presidents of Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil promised to prepare in-depth studies for the 10,000km pipeline by mid-year.

We thought a fisher cat had killed a squirrel in our front yard but it was just a chunk of Cindy Sheehan's skull thyat was blown here when her head exploded. If they can't trust Hugo Chavez who can they trust?

Just a guess, but IMO work on that pipeline won't start until after Chavez is gone, and it's a toss-up whether such a pipeline will EVER be built.

This is more along the lines of "Wouldn't it be nice if..."

Cindy will simply tell everyone that only non-native plants put in by capitalist exploiters of the masses will be destory by the pipeline, and the animals in the rain forest have already expressed their joy at being able to give up their habitat and lives for the greater glory of world socialism (You can say stuff like this even after your head has exploded).

Doesn't Chavez know that, in the west, socialists are supposed to betray workers on the altar of environmentalism? Sheesh, I thought everyone knew that.

leftists are the worst polluters and environmental defilers going. only the dim witted western chump would be surprised by this turn of events. luckily they can manufacture whatever justification is required, to avoid having to change their overall world view.

Any support for your "lefties is the worstest" claim, Toe, or you just you-ing the party line?

Your lack of lemming knowledge is making me think you don't know what you're talking about:

here's one that holds for many of the celebrity environmentalists on the Left, flying around at all, but in Gulfstream IVs and the like in particular:

Hope we see Cindy at the convention.

All right! It's been a few weeks since our last troll sighting.

We could start a list of environmental horrors caused by socialism/theLeft, starting with East vs. West Germany, or Chernobyl vs. Three Mile Island, or China's Cuyahoga River re-creations of the last few months, but no matter how many examples we give, I'd expect that won't be good enough.

jam, here's one for you:

. . . and let's not forget Ben & Jerry's annual dump of liquid refuse into Vermont waterways with nary a peep from the Lefty envirowhackos. But had it been Exxxon, well. . .

Heh, speaking of Vermont based prgressive businesses, I used to work for a very liberal organic dairy up here. When we had a surplus of milk, why we would dump it in the creek out back! Very, very naughty from an environmental standpoint.

Posted by: Bryan at January 27, 2006 8:09 AM

why wouldn't they give the surplus to the proles ?
