For any of those who doesn't know, RCTV better known as Radio Caracas Television, is the oldest channel in Venezuela. With 53 years on air is gonne be closed today at 11:59 local time. Just beacuse they make opposition to Chavez Goverment, he's gonna take them unproperly out of air 'cuz he doesn't want to give them the permission to work again and besides that he's gonna take "legally" all their equipments and they're gona send the army to teh building to make sure they can't operate.

There's some links for you all:

Ah yeah. Down with Capitalism, dead to every Neoliberalist in the world. Congratulations to all you Bolivarists and so called Socialists, you won this time.

Now, seriously. I think when a country invades another to take down a leader elected in a democratic way, this country deserves to be punished. But right now anyone willing to get rid of Hugo Chavez would do more good than harm. Specially because Chavez is acting in a very anti-democratic way to make sure people won't democratically choose another leader when they realise how rotten he is.

Practically all the money Chavez uses to keep his assistencialism (forgive my spelling or even a possible choice of the wrong word, this is just a rough attempt to guess the right word from the Portuguese equivalent) policy working comes from oil. And guess who's Venezuela's biggest customer... ;)
So, all the money Chavez gets to brainwash people and turn them against America comes from America.

I dunno about other Latin American countries, but here in Brazil most of the press often remarks that it's impossible to fully understand Chavez and foresee what he'll do, how he'll react to certain things, because he's more of an actor or anything. Even his Bolivarism/Anti-Americanism is no more than a strategy to get popular among his people. Of course there are many people in Venezuela aware of what Chavez really is, but most of them are poor people who don't have much access to information, so they don't even know all the free stuff they get is paid with money coming from the same America they're told to hate.

Venezuela does have oil. Lots of it.

From the November 27, 2006 report (by Cesar J Alvarez) for the Council on Foreign Relations report entitled "Venezuela’s Oil-Based Economy":

>>How much oil is PDVSA producing?
According to the U.S. government’s Energy Information Administration (EIA), production of crude oil reached an estimated 3.1 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2000 before falling to about 2.3 mb/d after the PDVSA strike. It is not clear whether Venezuela’s average output has been able to return to its prestrike production levels.

Since 2004 it has reportedly been yielding a relatively consistent 2.6 mb/d, according to the EIA. In contrast, PDVSA estimates the rate at around 3.1 mb/d in 2005. But PDVSA’s estimate also includes over 600,000 barrels a day of extra-heavy crude oil from the Orinoco belt, whereas the EIA’s estimates do not specify what type of oil grades make up its crude oil supply figures.

A report (PDF) by the International Energy Agency, which does account for the extra-heavy crude oil production, put PDVSA’s 2005 production rate at 3.2 mb/d, but showed a decreased rate of 2.55 mb/d in September 2006.

Venezuela has an estimated 78 billion barrels of conventional crude oil reserves and an additional estimated 235 billion barrels of unconventional extra-heavy crude oil in the Orinoco Belt region located southeast of Caracas. If development in the region can turn this extra-heavy tar-like oil into a more marketable commodity, Venezuela’s total reserves could rival those of Saudi Arabia, reports the New York Times. Yet Professor Tinker-Salas argues that production of extra-heavy crude oil is “only viable long as the price of oil remains over $50 per barrel.”<<

http://www.cfr.org/publication/12089/venezuelas_oilbased_economy.html

From the CIA World Fact Book:

>>Venezuela remains highly dependent on oil revenues, which account for roughly 90% of export earnings, more than 50% of the federal budget revenues, and around 30% of GDP. Tax collection - Venezuela's primary source of non-oil revenue - is expected to surpass $23 billion in 2006, exceeding the yearend collection goal by more than 20%. A nationwide strike between December 2002 and February 2003 had far-reaching economic consequences - real GDP declined by around 9% in 2002 and 8% in 2003 - but economic output since then has recovered strongly. Fueled by higher oil prices, record government spending helped to boost GDP growth in 2004 and 2005 to approximately 18% and 11%, respectively. Economic growth in 2006 reached about 9%. This spending, combined with recent minimum wage hikes and improved access to domestic credit, has fueled a consumption boom - car sales in 2006 increased by around 70% - but has come at the cost of higher inflation. Despite government attempts to withdraw liquidity from the economy, Venezuela's money supply set a record in June 2006, approximately 70% higher than the previous year. Imports have also jumped significantly.<<

It will be interesting to see if someone picks up the cable broadcast and broadcasts it illegally over the airwaves (i.e. pirate radio) or the web.

As an aside, I hope you are doing well Mari!

There's a project: they're moving all the people to another building to make a cable channel, but it's like giving them the pleasure to make fun of them. And thanks Cindy, we have to chat soon ^^
