    Report: Hugo Chávez in Critical Condition In Cuban Hospital

    By Adrian Carrasquillo

    Hugo Chávez extended stay in a Cuban hospital is because he is in critical condition, according to a report in El Nuevo Herald.

    The Venezuelan president, who was last seen in public June 9 and last heard from on June 12, on a phone call with Venezuelan state television, was said to have been treated for a pelvic abscess in Cuba.

    During the call Chávez said that medical tests showed no sign of any "malignant" illness.

    But according to the report in El Nuevo Herald, Chávez finds himself in "critical condition, not grave, but critical, in a complicated situation."
    The Miami newspaper cited U.S. intelligence officials who wished to remain anonymous.

    Chávez silence has led to chatter and speculation in Venezuela that the socialist leader is actually suffering from prostate cancer. Intelligence officials could not confirm a diagnosis of prostate cancer but Chávez family did go to Cuba in the last 72 hours, according to wire service EFE.

    A sad loss if true.

    Maybe we can send him 1,000 lbs of Tritonal to help ease his suffering.

    Here's an interesting target, down at the range:



    The Porsche 911's owner donated his troublesome car to a local gun club rather than pay more than $20,000 to have the engine & drive train fixed.

    The thing looked more like Swiss cheese by the end, especially as they poured some .50 cals on in the afternoon.

    Wow. Those guys give credence to the old saying "you can't hit the broad side of a barn!" Seriously, worst shots I ever saw.

    No no no... if you hit the dirt 30 feet in front of the thing you're trying to kill, the rocks and dirt you kick up act like shrapnel... they were doing it on purpose, dude!

    I'd have to have access to both a Porsche and a .50 cal to see if this is true though.

    With all of the unbroken trap shooting targets in the background I’d say they aren’t very good with a shotgun either.

    Safest spot when they shoot = downrange

    It looks WAY too good. Got to be smaller calibers- .50s I've seen do way more damage than that. Don't take my word for it-

    "We say in our platform that we believe that the right to coin money and issue money is a function of government....

    Those who are opposed to this proposition tell us that the issue of paper money is a function of the bank and that the government ought to go out of the banking business. I stand with Jefferson rather than with them, and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of the government and that the banks should go out of the governing business."

    North Korea loses soccer match because of lightning strike!

    Guess why Pyongyang's women soccer players weren't up to snuff in their match against the US. They were struck by lightning. Duh.

    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."
