By Stickin’ It to The Man.

Exxon makes the world a better place by standing up to Hugo Chavez, who is busy trying to steal Exxon’s portion of a Venezuelan joint venture, nationalize major industry, and plunge Venezuela into the hell of personality cult socialism a la Castro.

It’s incredible that Chavez, with Venezuela swimming in oil, with prices flirting with $100 / barrel, can seem to find a way to get his economy to produce enough stuff like milk and chickens.
But it’s not surprising. There’s nothing like a good dose of socialism to bring on poverty.

The real surprising twist is finding anyone willing to stand up to this thug.
