Nicolas “El Platanito” Maduro to spend mega-millions of petrodollars on “Pharaonic Hugo Chavez Park”
From ABC Spain, source of all important news from Caracastan. Whole thing HERE in Spanish.
Just when you thought that the latrine couldn’t be dug any deeper or be filled with more ordure, Saddam-Hussein-look-alike Nicolas Maduro comes along to prove everyone wrong.
Today he announced plans to build the largest of all parks in Caracastan, in honor of his mentor Hugo Chavez, and he is actually calling it “Pharaonic” … though the exact meaning of that bombastic appellation remains somewhat unclear to all non-Bolivarian minds.
The funds for this project were set aside by Hugo Chavez himself before he died, but only to the sum of 15 million dollars. The projected cost announced today was 30 million.
Current “president” Maduro has pledged to siphon whatever else is needed from the country’s treasury.
The 1,600-acre park will include a 35,000-seat baseball stadium and a 55,000-seat soccer stadium, as well as many other expensive features, including a bus depot, a symphony hall, bike trails, and a 100-acre plaza (ostensibly for Fidelesque gatherings of “the people”). To top it off, the park will also house the campus of the new Bolivarian University. It will be the largest park in Venezuela.
Multiple-prize-winning British architect Sir Richard Rogers has agreed to design this eighth wonder of the modern world, the first in human history to combine a bus depot, bike trails, university, stadiums, and a concert hall as window-dressing for a huge plaza in which a dictator can berate hundreds of thousands of his subjects in the tropical heat.
As everyone in the world knows, the budget initially announced for all public works projects always turns out to be a very small fraction of the final cost. Consequently, some in Caracastan have expressed concern over this potential money pit.
So it goes. There you have it. This is what Revolutions are all about, especially in Latrine America. No toilet paper, no bread, no freedom of speech, no hope, but plenty of “pharaonic” memorials for the tinhorn dictator. Imagine what Fidel would have built for himself if he had access to petrodollars….
Can you imagine the Sphinx –ten times larger than the one in Egypt — with Fidel’s face on it, and with nine pyramids in the background, each ten times larger too? Seguro. Segurísimo. No problem….. and each of these monuments would be loaded with nuclear missiles too. H-bombs, for sure, all aimed northwards.
