Hugo Chavez dies.

I have to be completely honest with you guys, I don’t know a hell of a lot about Hugo Chavez. I briefly read his history on wikipedia and I have seen snippets here and there talking about how he was a communist, how he was Obama’s buddy and so on.  It was mostly political and never in a positive light. But I have no opinion on him or his politics as I just don’t know enough.

I just want to report what you may or may not already know, that today this man passed away.  My facebook and twitter timelines are flooded with either support or hatred for the man. Comments range from “Rest in peace” to “Good Riddance you piece of crap”.

I’m curious how the NYCTalking audience that is familiar with him feels about his passing away and why? Will the new President be better or worse for Venezuela? Whatever your opinion, we can all agree that life loss is never a fun thing.

Much like you, I have very little knowledge of the man…but always sad to hear when someone passes. You’ve peaked my interest to do a bit of a google search on him:-)

Helenita Hui, I definitely want your feedback on this. I gather you didn’t like the guy. Care to share with the uninformed why?

I am very likely writing a piece for NBCL about it tonight. It will explain a lot.

as a Venezuelan (And proud) but for safety issues. I was forced to leave this beautiful country. A country with full of dreams, is full of Corruptions, full of Violence.

Helenita, when you say violence, are you speaking about violence from people like you and me? Everyday street violence, or more from the government and corrupt cops, etc? Though some may argue those are one and the same.

Well, Imagine you walking alone in the Streets in Venezuela at 8 PM. Chances of getting shot is 100 percent.
