I am not a political person. I never was, never will be. However, the current state of the world disgusts me. Right now I am sick and grumpy, and thus shall I rant…

This article, “Chavez revamps "imperialist" horse on coat of arms.”

Can someone say “bourgeoisie”?

Chavez was elected seven years ago to the presidency of the world's No. 5 oil exporter promising to reverse years of neglect of the poor." WTF? So is this guy an idiot or what? Does he understand how much money this will end up costing? That he could have spent on things that would HELP the proletariat he promised? Really. Sure, symbols help bolster the pride/mentality of the people and all, but I think this only bolsters his pride. Does he think the people will be fooled by this empty "horse and pony" show?

Dude, the flag comes last, man. The people should come first. Why don’t you just buy them a goat? Heh, for the price of all the money that will have to be spent to revamp your flag, you could buy quite a few “Arks” :P

To be honest, I have no idea what he really has or has not done as I'm pretty sure that this story is if not biased, at least not painting the whole picture. Still, it strikes me as ridiculous...though well, the change of the flag will, in a sense, make him "immortal" in the history of his country and that's probably all he really wanted anyway.
