5. Just finished the first report from Amy Goodman, Democracy Now. It was excellent.

They bring up a point which has never been addressed here:

Why on earth does this government imagine it has the right to demand Venezuela's government which AUTOMATICALLY recounts 53% of the votes in EVERY election, feel it had the right to demand they recount every single vote last time, when the Republican Party fought like wild men to prevent recounts during the 2000 Presidential election, they never WERE adequately recounted, and George W. Bush took Al Gore to court to PREVENT RECOUNTS in Florida? To boot, we learn much too late that Al Gore, indeed, DID win the popular vote in Florida, IF the recount had been allowed to go through.

Damn!

Of course they've been interfering from the moment Hugo Chavez took office in 1999. Maybe even during the campaign prior to the first Presidential election, the way they did with Evo Morales, in Bolivia.

I really should calm down, a bit!

They are all so damned crooked, and they DO determine what our corporate "news" media tells us about the countries the military/political establishment doesn't like.

I will be watching the second of your videos a little later tonight. You've provided very helpful information. Thank you, monica angela.
