Sic Semper Tyrannis. Thus do we here at the Alexandria Daily Poop bid good riddance to Venezuelan despot Hugo Chavez, who died of cancer of the asshole yesterday (Some folks say it was prostate cancer, but even if it was lung cancer, in Chavez's case it was still cancer of the asshole).
Chavez was a player right out of the Castroite chapter of the Marxist playbook. He achieved "social equality" by making everybody poor, of course enriching himself in the process. He nationalized the petroleum industry in Venezuela and all but wrecked it.
Chavez disarmed the citizenry and made them so dependent on government handouts that people in that country yesterday mourned, saying: "Who will take care of us now?" That, by the way, is the path Current Resident Obama is attempting to take the nation down.
In the end, all of Chavez's pilfered wealth could not save him. Now a line of Venezuelans waits to piss into his grave and then dance on it.
Rest in Peace? Hardly. Sic Semper Tyrannis - thus always unto tyrants.
