Spicoli's (sic Penn) view of America and his Hollywood multimillion dollar riches can be summed up as ... free market capitalism for me, but not for thee.

Ironically Sean Penn is rich.

I wonder if he’s written a check to the US treasury yet to make up for the low taxes he pays.

If Sean Penn thinks Chavez would give him the time of day if he had no fame or money he is coo-coo.

Dear Sean, you have the money to leave this horrible country and live in Venezuela.

Don’t go away mad...just go away.

Love Ya Much (not),

I guess Cindy Sheehan was busy this weekend and Chavez leans both ways.

I lived in Venezuela in the mid 70s. Things were not perfect and there was corruption. However a thriving middle class existed and capitalism was the name of the game. Venezuela was prosperous but not perfect.

Today Venezuela, one of the leading oil producers in the world is an economic disaster due to the policies of the Marxist Hugo Chavez. Most of the Engineers, Doctors and skilled have fled Venezuela. When I lived in Venezuela there was no shortage of food, electricity, etc. This is no longer true.

Hugo Chavez did win his first election. He did not win the second election as it was totally fraudulent. I think he took to heart the saying of Stalin, “It is not important who they vote for. What is important is who counts the votes.”

It must be great for Penn’s ego to hob nob with dictators so he can feel like he matters...especially when no one cares what he says.....
