A potpourri of more than pot: Neither Hugo Chavez or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, nor Lula, are loony

A.  Whatever happened to the Monroe Doctrine, whatever that was?

President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela presents migraine headaches for the Obama Administration because Chavez is at the forefront of creating, if not an alliance, at least a close working relationship with countries that are uniting to counterbalance the interests of the USA — worldwide, and specifically in America’s backyard…  Hugo Chavez has close relationships with various countries in the hemisphere, including CubaBolivia, BolivaandNicaragua, and Argentina, as well as worldwide with China , Iran and Russia…  Alone, he and Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad still are relatively minor players on the world scene, but together and in cooperation with Presidents Dmitry Medvedev of Russia and Jintao Hu of China, the two are formidable players… 

President Luiz (Lula) Inacio da Silva of Brazil — if anyone is not aware of who Lula is, stay tuned because he quietly has turned his country into a major player in the world, by various means, including by taking a leadership role in the BRIC organization, composed of Brazil, Russia, India and China…  [If anyone didn’t notice, recently President Da Silva reportedly let Sec. Clinton know that Brazil would not support imposing strong economic sanctions on Iran]… 

On the other hand, in various ways the USA seems to be giving up its leadership role  in this hemisphere, becoming more passive, isolationist even  — who’s minding the store?

President Obama and Sec. of State Clinton need to get into the game because game’s on in Latin America, while they seem to be whistling on the sideline –America might begin to decline before our eyes, on their watch

B.  drugskill, man (in more ways than one) and smoking pot on the job is not a right, potworkers — and don’t you forget it.

[And finally,  an Iranian cleric has found the causes for earthquakes, and all the world is grateful]

  1. Latin America does not vote in the next presedential election of the USA. That’s the long and short of it.
