The Czech online daily iDNES reports that Official Obama Pal and Soulmate (OOPS) Hugo Chavez decided to ban Coke Zero in Venezuela, claiming that it damages the health of his people.
Just how Coke Zero damages Venezuelans’ health was not specified, but in a socialist regime, that is not necessary. All you need is El Supremo’s ukase to that effect, and becomes Truth.
Kinda like Stalin’s declaration that the sonata is the most perfect form of music (per my long-time friend, Prof. Dr. Herbert Thomas Mandl).
Given the chaotic economic developments in this country under the Obamites, one wonders how many OOPSes (of the same ilk as Chavez) beyond the current brace of White House czars and other shadowy apparatchiki are in charge of decisions about our economy. Let me see, a telephone type in charge of a car company…
It makes my head spin just to think about it.
