    Where is the Mel Gibson-level backlash against Sean Penn?

  • “…how that exodus has accelerated economic stagnation in the neighborhoods of Caracas that once benefited from a vibrant Jewish business community.”

    And now Venezuela repeats Spain’s suicidal mistake of driving out the most vibrant element of its economic life.

    “which keep the Caracas poor hemmed in the Chávez camp.”

    What better illustration of Bebel’s remarks that, “Anti-semitism is the socialism of fools.”

    Robert Heinlein: “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as ‘bad luck’.”
