#1 In the past, Mr. Morales has said, "Latin America must build many Cubas

Now there is something to look forward to. But I guess from Mr. Morales POV, getting to be another Castro wouldn't be too bad.

#2 Of course, B, if you're "another Castro" you get gifts, visits, and all sorts of perks from America's Democrat party.

#4 George HW Bush, William J Clinton and George W. Bush have all dropped the ball in Latin America since the end of the cold war. We've ignored them instead of weeding out the last vestiges of communism by enforcing reforms along with a constant pushing of capitalism and democracy.

#5 Nearly two decades of economic liberalization, in which successive governments, under the guidance of the International Monetary Fund, have privatized public companies and mines and moved to modernize the oil and gas industries, has failed to improve the lives of ordinary people.

Graft and corruption.

#6 I remember staying overnight with a player on an opposing hockey team in Missisagua, Ontario when I was a kid. I came home and asked my dad why the kid had long hair and was really in to KISS while all the kids in my Junior High had graduated on to STYX. My dad explained that the Candians just found out that Americns wore their hair long in the 60's. It was 1978 at the time.

Is it possible that the news that the demise of the communist/socialist type of economy has not reached South Americ yet?
