I am so very thankful to God that President Chavez is conscious, aware of his fatal condition and able to feel as much pain as humanely possible. I alos pray to God that President Chavez remains in this condition for several more weeks, until the opposition party is ready to assume control.

Let’s see. Goes to Cuba, where the doctor makes the same money as my paperboy, has no medicine and the anesthetic is a wooden mallet to the head. Says he’s cured, but no one there has a camera to show Chavez giving the “HI” sign. Could be.

The Cubans and other communist controllers are trumping up some sort of grand finale that will give them more power over Venezuela and the region.

Let me guess, they know chavez is toast so, how do you make him look alive and turn him into a hero forever?

I would say they find a look alike stand in, then bury chavez and send the stand-in to Caracas for a welcome-home speech in front of the cameras. Somethime right before, during or after a few speechless waves to the adoring crowds, the podium or his motorcade car blows up. Then the communists are justified in keeping the dream alive for another 50 years.

Sounds fantastic, but not any more fantastic than the events already transpired, especially inaugurating an invisible man guarded on an island, ruled by a dictator taking over a free country.
