    Default I do not understand the CITGO-Venezuela Heating Oil Program in America

    You've got to admit that this is just so funny on so many levels.

    http://www.citgoheatingoil.com/

    You have to take your hat off to the Venezuelans on this one.

    I'm not sure which is more amusing.

    Chavez helping America, despite the tension between these two countries.

    Or America, the richest country in the world, unable and unwilling to help its poorest citizens, so another country has to do it for them!

    You should all be ashamed.

    So you fell for the Citgo trap, and the madman chavez's ironic, sadistic snub. shame for you.

    Shame for America for building schools in Afghanistan and nuclear containers just to be scrapped. Thats heating oil for a thousand citgo programs.

    It's all dark humour, and pathetic. Chavez hugs the madman in Iran that advocates jew genocide. They both need a dose of Ricin or some exotic poison from our agents.

    We all know, though, that America wants a few people to go hungry and cold to show what happens if people get lazy.

    We all know it could feed and heat those people. But a lot of people here just think that the poor are out to milk the system. So they let all poor suffer, regardless.

    That's really what Chavez is trying to expose here. And that in Venezuela, for better or worse, no one goes hungry or cold without some Government help.

    I say let the Government here help. And if a few milk the system, who really gives a damn?

    Very few people want to be unemployed. Very few people want to live off benefits. Heck, benefits are not the big bucks most Americans think they are. You'd struggle to feed yourself if you were on them.

    Most people are decent and just want to earn a living and take care of their families. The Government should be there to pick up the pieces when they can't.

    And if America is not man enough to take care of Americans then it looks like Venezuela will.

    The King would have never let this happen.

    Correct, the king would have long ago snubbed out Chavez, the freedom killer and monster of the peoples will.

    Object to Chavez, and parts of you show up in every dumpster in town.

    The king would have made his country the 54th or so state after Mexico, Honduras, Panama, India and the better parts of China.

    NOW the king has something to work with to feed, house, and warm the poor.

    You are moving past socialism into communist-anarchist territory, Ian.

    Hopefully you are not applying for citizenship, You would not wish to make that oath.

    Just bought a georgeous Apollo 3 way bronze valve. US made. On that we can agree.

    There's nothing wrong with the pledge.

    Except the bit that goes "the republic for which it stands".

    Republic? It's still ours. It was stolen. I don't need to be a citizen to live here. It's all mine.

    So, no I am also not a citizen.

    Anyway, I don't really care about Chavez.

    What I care about is why America is not helping poor Americans with their heating bills?

    Our utility offers 10 to 20% discounts on electric based on income with a 5 line form.

    Phone co. gives about 50% discount same way.

    Maybe Chavez will add to that

    My renters abandoned their propane on my advice and went to finned oil heaters and save about 300$ monthly
