Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

7-11 Sends Hugo Chavez A Parting Gift
by Cordeiro
Venezuela's "Progressive" President Hugo "Wannabe Thug" Chavez is about learn a very tough lesson in economics.

Pissing off the client is a bad thing to do.

I salute 7-11 and the Southland Corporation for having the guts to tell Citgo (and by proxy Hugo) what they can do with their gasoline.

Gas is a valuable commodity, so market forces dictate someone will buy it. However, another middleman will be introduced into the equation which will increase the cost of the transaction thereby decreasing the profit margin for Hugo and Citgo. With the dramatic decrease in the price of oil in the past month, Hugo will have a lot less money with which he can fund his leftward lurches.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go patronize my local 7-11.
