Jerry, the reports with images are very common in media. The last one was in El País, where the mother of Chávez appeared sumptuously dressed. Of course, this is a very tricky manoeuvre of those who blindly support Chávez or the Cuban regime becoming their accomplices.   Since there are not accountability mechanisms to record and punish this corrupted enrichment, we juts can use our discretion to judge those valiant who dare to denounce the situation. And it happens that those are opponents that you try to discredit and don’t even read because they don’t share your doctrine.   Your tolerance of these abuses leads me to point out that you don’t support accountability mechanisms indeed .  A.

If the Chavez family  "shamelessly shows off its wealth" then it would be a very simple matter indeed to show us the the digital evidence. You did say "shamelessly", didn't you? That means, to me at least, that it's out in the open and visible to anyone who will look. Show us the beef.   In solidarity, Jerry
