One wonderful thing about moving to WordPress is that hate mail has increased. For instance, my post on Cuba’s energy shortages here.
I pointed out that Carlos Lege spent Christmas touring oil facilities and complaining that Cuba lacked enough energy. I pointed out that Cuba sent its doctors to Venezuela in exchange for oil – made deals with the Indians, Chinese and Canadians for exploiting it’s own oil – and still there is not enough energy.
Reader Russell Tarbet responded from Australia, and in the manner of dictator appeasers everywhere he begins his reply this way:
How sad, HOW VERY SAD, that u are so stupid, ignorant and plain and simple mind-fucked that you beleive, I mean honestly beleive that Lege is not concerned with “Normal life.”
Name calling rather than examples – invectives rather than argument. Thank you for reading, Russell, and please come back.
