CITGO, Venezuela Distribute Oil To U.S. Services

Joe Kennedy Program Delivers To Hordes Of NYC Qualified Residents

Provides 112 Million Gallons Of Fuel To Social Services In 23 States
NEW YORK (CBS) ―

For scores of low-income families it will be like the equivalent of winning a small lottery jackpot. A program run by former Congressman Joe Kennedy will deliver free heating oil – donated by Citgo and the Chavez regime in Venezuela – to some 200,000 households. CBS 2 takes a look at how the program works, and who qualifies.
(snip)

According to CITGO, The CITGO-Venezuela Heating Oil Program will provide an estimated 112 million gallons of fuel this winter to be distributed in more than 224,000 households and 250 social service providers in 23 states. These totals include the CITGO-Venezuela Tribal Heating Oil Program.

CitGO and check it out!

1. Charity begins at home----something Chavez seems to have
 forgotten. Lots of poor in Venezuela,a lot more than in the USA.

Joe Kennedy is an ass and only does this because his political ambitions have been thwarted.

11. Petty, mean remarks, assuming the worst about people who are committing 
 a kind act--providing for the needs of the poor in winter.

If you don't have something useful and informative to say, and all you can say is that someone is "an ass," why comment at all?

Mature people understand that human beings--particularly politicians--often have mixed motives. Why assume the worst, of a kind act? And is it not an important part of Hugo Chavez's job to be a good ambassador from his people to us? The Bushites revile him, for no good reason, and give people here a very bad impression of his government and his country. Why shouldn't he seek to counter that disinformation with direct, people to people aid? And is it not an important part of Joe Kennedy's job to see to the needs of his constituents, especially the poor? These days, we often get politicians who only see to the interests of the super-rich. That isn't right. So, when a politician does the opposite--does the right thing--that deserves praise, no matter what you think of him personally. This mean, personal, nasty point of view is not called for, and it is not persuasive. It makes me suspect YOUR motives.
 


The alert button is getting worn out over there!
Let nothing trouble you,
Let nothing frighten you. 
All things are passing;
God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
He who has God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

Real world translation: Your opinion of leftwing politicians and socialistic dictators is not in lockstep with the hive. It makes me think that you like the USA.
If you want to worship an orange pile of garbage with a reckless disregard for everything, get on down to Arbys & try our loaded curly fries.
