Americans left in the cold as US, Venezuela bicker

Up until three years ago, heating oil was the homeless shelter’s biggest expense. Kathy Boylan has lived and worked here for more than a decade helping homeless mothers back on their feet…with a budget of $1,000 per month.
“We try on a shoestring to keep this home for 20 people functioning,” said Boylan.
So when Joe Kennedy’s nonprofit organization, Citizens Energy, offered Boylan free heating oil from Venezuela, she took it. Citizens Energy and CITGO assistance currently pays for three-quarters of the homeless shelter’s heating budget. For six years, Citizens Energy has provided

It is disapointing to see, that many american diplomats and politicians would rather see their people freeze, then see Hugo Chavez, Venezuela and associates help them during these tough times. A smaller and poorer nation is helping a larger, more wealthy country. Yet the U.S continues to challenge Hugo Chavez and pursue and agresive political campaign against him.

Sounds like political propaganda to me. Let me ask you this. Would you take money from the mafia to feed your family even though you knew it was bad money. Maybe later the mafia might ask you to do something in return for helping you out. Maybe Mr. Chavez should use that money to help his starving people first. Makes more sense to me. But anywhoo, believe what you want

Maybe it is just a way for Hugo Chavez to take a jab at the US Political heavy weights, it doesnt matter either way. What needs to be done is getting done, why should someone suffer because party A does not like party B, party A should then take up the slack and offer what party B is offering.

Maybe it is propaganda and maybe it is not, I know that much propaganda has been spread up here against Hugo and people are not getting the clear picture.

It would make more sense to me if the US would stop spending a lot of money on psyops and coup attempts in Vanezuela and used the money on their own population (but that would be socialist, wouldn't it?)


Seriously. Did you know that the US funded a coup of Chavez in 2002? Chavez was held hostage for 47 hours until he was released when the population demanded it. The US tried to claim that Chavez's soldiers were sniping civilians on the street and even went through the trouble to obscure photographs (one was supposedly of Chavez's snipers shooting at a crowd, but the original photo showed it was actually the crowd hiding behind a bridge and exchanging fire from the CIA-lead snipers).

Going by that reasoning, you should never use money in the first place, because it's all printed by the corrupt Federal Reserve.

Or because the US government itself is corrupt on so many different levels, might as well use that as an excuse to stop using your US currency too.


Tell the homeless people that an evil man is stealing their hearts with the free heat, and see how many give a rat's ass. Better yet, go put yourself in their shoes.

I'd be more upset that our own leaders are doing less about our homeless than foreign leaders, whether you think it's propaganda or not. They're still freezing.
