#1 via Drudge: UPDATE -Chavez seizes Cargill Venezuela unit, warns others
Posted by Frank G 2009-03-04 20:57||   2009-03-04 20:57|| Front Page Top

#2 "'Prepare the decree, we are going to expropriate Cargill. We are not going to tolerate this,' Chavez said.

It was not clear if Cargill's other Venezuelan food units would be affected."

It's clear as a bell. They will be. Cargill is a U.S. company.

Hope the Venezuelans like eating Oooogo's bullshit - that's all they're going to have left pretty soon....

#4 Communists just don't have the knack for farming. This is a sure path to food shortages leading to famine leading to violent revolution.

#5 First, you get control of the government. Then, you get control of the major source of revenue. Then, you take control of the food. Then, you quiet all dissent. Yep, Chavez is leading the way and Obama is following in the same path.
