Flying Socialist Class

Bolivia’s President Elect Evo Morales is quickly changing habits.

A Venezuelan columnist revealed that the Anti-Capitalist leader flew to Spain and France in a Citgo corporation jet.

The airplane, a Falcon 200EX with American plate N-977-CP, was graciously lent by Citgo’s de facto chairman and Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez-Frías.

It’s so good to be a socialist President. You fly for free in big-oil-company jets and on top of that, you get your own complimentary security service.

Indeed, Chavez’s generosity knows no limits. He also provided Morales with an armed security force to escort him all the way to Spain. Spanish authorities where dismayed when they met the armed escorts in Madrid. The bodyguards where allowed to enter the country under two conditions, no weapons and no accompanying Morales.

Thanks for bringing this to light camilo,I just worded mine a little wrong,what bothered me most was the other nine oil companies that should have been in line first with their hefty profits. I know he only did it for show and he is a caballos rump,it seems that the other companies should have been leading the way when it comes to helping the poorer class of this country.

Yes, it's sad to see that the only big oil company showing a sense of corporate responsibility is the one owned by Chavez. Thanks

Thanks for the heads up!

I think we all should be concerned for the left-leaning direciton of our Latino neighbors. History has proven the fallacy of Communism. Yet it always sounds just good enough to spark hope.

That is until you check the freezer and realize that "some animals are better than others."
