How Hard

does Hugo Chavez rock? Really fucking hard, is how:
The Venezuelan government has warned it will confiscate hundreds of private companies that are lying idle if they fail to re-open.

President Hugo Chavez said the firms' workers would be given help to set up co-operatives and re-start production for the benefit of the community.

He said the move was needed to fight poverty and end Venezuela's dependence on "the perverse model of capitalism".
And lest anyone fail to fully grasp his meaning with that last, here's Chavez's formulation of the 'clear choice' facing Venezuelans: 'Either capitalism, which is the road to hell, or socialism, for those who want to build the kingdom of God here on Earth.'

Boo yah.
