CITGO, you have some explaining to do!

VCrisis has posted a letter sent to Mr. Félix M. Rodríguez, President and CEO of Citgo. The letter authored by U.S. Reps. Joe Barton, R-Texas, and Ed Whitfield, R-Ky. polity requests Citgo to explain in detail the discount oil program to low income Americans in the Northeast. Is there an alterior motive, in light of of Hugo Chavez's hateful and idiotic comments towards the U.S.A? Duh! The letter cites several instances of Chavez's hateful remarks, and requests an answer to the following questions:
1) How and when was this Program first conceived? (2) How and why were the particular beneficiaries of this Program selected? (3) How is the Program being implemented? (4) What is the status of the Program in each of the proposed communities? (5) Does this Program run afoul of any antitrust laws? In addition, please provide all records in CITGO’s possession, custody, or control relating to the Program. All responses and documents should be provided on or before February 23, 2006.
Like all dictatorships where the rule of law has crumbled, these programs are not drawn up in a conference room, or well conceived and planned, and much less altruistic. These are opportunistic, and put in place at the whim of the dictator, paticularly when they feel the "enemy" is most vulnerable. The dictator is the law, the program maker and the program taker. Didn't fidel (Death and hell be upon him) decided on the spur of the moment to erect 138 black flags just to block an electronic sign, so to is the discounted oil program by the Venezuelan government. When this program fails, when oil expecting low income Americans fail to get their oil, or prices goes up, the left and MSM will declare that it is the fault ofUnited States for derailing the generous and wonderful gift from the people of Venezuela.
