Well I would call the recurring palpitations from those countries growing pains , if you look elsewhere , perhaps in the US you will see that no one is making noise about some idiotic kiddy show under the guise of gender awareness .
When it comes to Teletubbies , I prefer the word imbecilic as the nomer for the show .
I mean come on here , beings with television sets where their bellybutton should be ?
If you ask me I don't think we have to worry about the teletubbies turning our children into homosexuals , after watching that tripe they will be too idiotic to even think about their sexual preferences ....lol
Well Chavez is becoming rather well experienced at shooting his own people ...he's a paper Castro ..nothing more , nothing less .
I dont know if communism or even Stalinism is the vogue , they always tend to kill their own just before they break down and hit skidrow ....remember the mess that was left behind by the Soviets , you should know ..the stinking sweat shops , the terrible disorder , and environmental catastrophes they left as their legacy .
I still like Regan , he at least had the balls to tell the USSR to tear that wall down !~

Venezuela: Well Chavez, is totally en vogue
with turning his announced 21st century socialism (fear we'll have to wait till 22nd century for real cool socialism) into 20th century Stalinism. Authoritarianism and/or populism are THE thing on the political catwalks worldwide... Take a peek at Russia (where not only gay activists are beaten up by police), Poland (where after Teletubbies, miniskirts, abortions after rape and incest are in discussion for a ban), (semi-)officially accepted racism, antisemitism, anticyganism etc. flourishing in many places and so on... not to mention states like Saudi-Arabia, North Korea, Sudan, China, Iran, Myanmar, Pakistan, Belarus, Cuba, Syria, the 3 -stan countries of Central Asia, Singapore, Egypt, where (ultra-)authoritarianism is quite established since a while.
Off-topic: How do you like Sarkozy's style up to now? Concerning that beer bet - I'd like Jever!
