Capriles: situation of hospitals
is not a result of capitalism

El Universal [Caracas, Venezuela], by Alicia de la Rosa

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 9/12/2013 8:21:32 PM

With reference to the amount to work to be done in health care, Venezuelan opposition Governor Henrique Capriles Radonski stressed during a public event the country relies on a lot of talent and resources, but lack of Government. During his speech, the opposition leader referred to the cost of drugs and the dramatic conditions public health care institutions are facing. In this regard, the governor instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care. Capriles seized the opportunity to reject the remarks by Health Minister Isabel Iturria, who after 15 years of revolution in Venezuela, still blames the situation

Comments:
Venezuela´s hospitals are hellholes, one step away from cockroach-infested bloody Castrocare nightmares.

Coming to a country near you.

Venezuela´s annual inflation rate hit 45.4% in August, the central bank revealed this week, the highest in five years and the highest in the region, even as consumer price increases slowed from the previous month.President Nicolas Maduro´s government has vowed to rein in inflation this year, but officials have indicated that they will revise the year-end target of between 15 and 20% that was set last year. Inflation slowed to 3% in August, from 3.2% in July and 4.7% in June, thanks to a decline in the cost of housing services, and a slower increase in the price of education and

Former rap impresario Marion “Suge” Knight was arrested by Los Angeles police Wednesday morning after being pulled over for a traffic violation, officials said. The former head of Death Row Records was pulled over about 12:30 a.m. near Beverly Hills, said LAPD officer Drake Madison. He declined to say what the alleged traffic violation was. A records check showed Knight was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant and police took him into custody. He was booked into county jail and released before 4 a.m. on $20,000 bail, records show. A warrant was issued for Knight’s arrest in February after he skipped a Beverly Hills

Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa is "very concerned" over the direction Venezuela has taken over the last years, and remarked that the country "is a total disaster, a real chaos; where demagogy, corruption, and violence abound." "(Venezuela) is a country that, instead of moving forward, is going backwards; it features the highest inflation rate in Latin America," Vargas Llosa remarked in an interview with news agency Efe apropos the publication of his new novel "El héroe discreto (The discreet hero)" in Spain, Latin America, and the United States. As usual, the writer seized the opportunity to give his opinion about current

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced on Tuesday at a public event that the Government would launch a "Truth News Broadcast" via mandatory radio and television broadcasts to air his Administration performance. The newscast will be broadcasted at noon and in prime time. Venezuelan opposition denounces that mandatory radio and television broadcasts constitute misuse of power by the Government, in addition to using state-run media for propaganda. For its part, the Venezuelan Government argues that mandatory radio and television broadcasts are a necessary tool to broadcast its messages, in order to counteract the alleged "censorship" the private media apply against government events and

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fielded hecklers who hounded her on Benghazi at the tail end of an award acceptance speech she delivered at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on Tuesday evening. Mrs. Clinton was accepting the 2013 Liberty Medal, an honor to recognize her career in public service and advocacy for women’s rights, CBS reported. She told the crowd of hundreds of the U.S. need to balance national security with human rights issues in Syria, and called for American politicians to cross party aisles and strike a chord of unity.

Britain celebrated at Mansion House in London Chile Day 2013, September 10, with Minister of State for the Foreign Office Hugo Swire as the main speaker. This year’s event was attended by the Lord Mayor, Chilean Finance Minister Felipe Larrain and numerous participants. Main speaker Minister Swire said the fact Chile Day is again in London is testament to the strength of the UK’s relationship with Chile. Close relations, whether in business, trade or diplomacy, matter to us all. It is how we can grow as countries, how we can succeed globally, and how we can all work together for

"´Your No. 1 client is the government,´ John J. Mack, Morgan Stanley´s chairman and chief executive from 2005 to 2009, told current CEO James Gorman in a recent phone call. Mr. Gorman, who was visiting Washington that day, agreed." - Wall Street Journal, September 10, 2013. The five year anniversary of the ‘financial crisis´ has predictably generated all manner of commentary about its presumed causes. What´s most unfortunate five years later is that ‘financial´ and ‘crisis´ are still used together. It´s unfortunate simply because despite what you read, the crisis was decidedly not financial, nor was it caused by a

SANTIAGO, Chile — By the looks of the bright, shiny Chilean capital, where it´s possible to shop at Starbucks, H&M or Banana Republic, dine at globally ranked restaurants such as Borago, or marvel at the world-class architectural engineering of the continent´s tallest skyscrapers that escaped Chile´s 2010 8.8-scale earthquake unscathed, it´s hard to believe that 40 years earlier Chile was a tottering democracy in ruins, well on its way to becoming a Soviet-Cuban satellite. The country changed course by a legislatively ordered military coup in 1973, which to this day remains globally reviled as if it were a destruction of democracy

Clashes in Chile on anniversary
of 1973 military coup

Protesters and police have clashed in Chile ahead of the anniversary of the coup led by Gen Augusto Pinochet. Police said they had arrested dozens of people for erecting barricades and throwing stones and petrol bombs. A bus was set alight in the capital, Santiago, where 8,000 officers have been deployed to prevent any violence. The 1973 coup deposed the democratically elected president, Salvador Allende, and led to 17 years of military rule. Past anniversaries have regularly been marked by demonstrations, some of which turned violent. Interior Minister Andres Chadwick said on Wednesday that "up to this moment the reports have been very positive compared

A number of events will be organized from Sept. 11-13 in Caracas following Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s announcement of a multinational event against “fascism.” It will be organized in memory of Chile’s former President Salvador Allende, and will start on the 40 year-anniversary of the military coup that overthrew him. “I invite you this week to Caracas to attend the world conference against fascism, reminding [sic] President Salvador Allende,” Maduro said on Twitter.

Prisoners held by the regime of former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet were played a “torture soundtrack” of songs by Julio Iglesias and George Harrison, according to new research. Music played at high volume during torture was part of the psychological suffering endured by some of his thousands of political opponents who were detained when Pinochet seized power in 1973. According to former prisoners, Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord”, the soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick’s film A Clockwork Orange and songs by Spanish crooner Iglesias were played for days at a time.

MOSCOW — RECENT events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies. Relations between us have passed through different stages. We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization — the United Nations — was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again. The United Nations’ founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and

So the Syria "crisis" is reaching its culmination. Syria´s WMD´s are likely to be placed under the control of its patron, Russia, perhaps even with the cooperation of other disinterested, responsible states such as Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela. The world´s only superpower, for its part, will loiter on the curb outside, asking hurried questions while the big boys come and go, stepping aside quickly to avoid being shoved into the gutter by their bodyguards. This situation is the sole handiwork of Mr. Barack H. Obama, successor in office to Washington, Lincoln, Truman, and Reagan.

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences. Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to

After 4 1 / 2 years of reminding Americans to eat their vegetables, Michelle Obama is turning her attention to what’s in their glasses. On Thursday, she and her staff will begin to ask Americans to drink more water. “Let’s Move,” meet “Drink Up.” In an all-out effort, Obama will fly to Watertown, Wisc. (Get it?) Actress Eva Longoria is expected to accompany the first lady. While there, Obama plans to ask cities all over to make their town a Water-town. She has produced personalized messages asking viewers of the most popular morning and daytime television shows to drink more

After a week or so of political whiplash, the country heard directly from President Obama as he tried to explain his policy. The speech was exceptionally revealing in the logical disconnect that plagues his policy: Chemical weapons use is beyond the pale and different than any weapon. We cannot let it go on. We have a national interest in acting. But I would ask Congress to hold off on voting for me to do anything. We’ll consider a deal to have Assad turn over his weapons. But remain in power. Several other disturbing inconsistencies were noteworthy. First, he talked about

Congress´s investigation into the IRS targeting of conservatives has been continuing out of the Syria headlines, and it´s turning up some news. Specifically, emails we´ve seen between former Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner and her staff raise doubts about IRS claims that the targeting wasn´t politically motivated and that low-level employees in Cincinnati masterminded the operation. In a February 2011 email, Ms. Lerner advised her staff—including then Exempt Organizations Technical Manager Michael Seto and then Rulings and Agreements director Holly Paz—that a Tea Party matter is "very dangerous," and is something "Counsel and [Lerner adviser] Judy Kindell need to be

Hillary Clinton hit pause on her presidential ambitions last night as she had to share a stage with former Florida governor Jeb Bush who is thought to be one of the most likely Republican candidates in 2016. In addition to being a politician himself, the son of one president and the brother of another, Jeb is also the chair of the National Constitution Center and was on hand to award the former First Lady with a lifetime achievement award. The evening wasn´t without any awkward moments, however, as a group of hecklers interrupted the ceremony chanting ´Benghazi´ repeatedly, as the

Successful recall elections Tuesday of two Democratic state senators in Colorado were because of “voter suppression, pure and simple,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday. Wasserman Schultz blamed lawsuits filed by opponents of gun control to prevent voters from mailing in ballots, the late announcement of polling locations, and “efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win.” “The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing

Miss Kansas is not in Kansas anymore. And the Miss America pageant has never seen anyone like her. First off, Miss Kansas Theresa Vail is a sergeant in the U.S. Army, only the second contestant ever to be on active duty. "Nobody expects a soldier to be a beauty queen," Vail told People magazine. “But I´m all about breaking stereotypes." Second, Sgt. Vail has big tattoos. Two of them. One, the insignia for the U.S. Army Dental Corps, is on her left shoulder, while a massive version of the Serenity Prayer runs down her right side. And when she struts her stuff in

The good news is we´re not at war. The bad news is … almost everything else about President Obama´s handling of Syria – the fumbling and flip-flopping and marble-mouthing – undercut his credibility, and possibly with it his ability to lead the nation and world. As he addressed a global audience Tuesday night, liberal elites blindly accepted White House fiction that Russian intervention this week was somehow part of Obama´s master plan. Their conservative counterparts practically rooted against a diplomatic breakthrough, preferring an Obama black eye over peace. Obama won! Obama lost! The fact is it´s too soon to keep

Here’s the read among Congressional Dems on this fall’s fiscal fights. At some point, House GOP leaders will have to pass an important bill with a lot of Democratic support — stiff-arming the Tea Party in the process. GOP leaders are trying to defer that moment for as long as possible, but there’s just no clear way around it. Multiple reports this morning tell us House GOP leaders are struggling to round up support among House Republicans for their new strategy for the fall. They are proposing a vote on a measure that would temporarily fund the government at current sequester
