Halloween is a "game of terror" huh? What a jackass, say what you want about the US Hugo, but let your kids have their fun. Trick or Treating is NOT some capitalist evil.

Is this guy serious? It's a holiday meant for a goof, it's nothing serious. It's this kind of shit that pisses me off. Get over yourself, Hugo.

Despite what he thinks, he has no damn right to stop this holiday from happening over there.

Background process. Has something to do with some activity going on somewhere. Sorting junkmail, I think. No value or interest. Doesn't do much except hog resource.

This is how dictators are formed. Ban something and see how the masses react. Let us watch how a dictatorship is formed. So all the masses can understand.

well we also really don't embrace the Halloween holidays over here either, mostly because people consider it a holiday backed by commercial interests, secondly because we have no culture connected to the history of Halloween. its probably more popular in major cities.

then again, Chavez is a populist, he will grab the topics that gets him attention. he plays on being anti-US and he will be able to do so for a long time because thats something that the south-Americans enjoy.

Seems odd to remove a holiday, usually a government adds a new holiday to shut the people up. Here they remove one to shut the people up.

Haloween is not a holiday in latin american countries. Some people may celebrate it with 'fantasy parties' and some doesn't. Usually, the majority of people doesn't celebrate it. Trick or treat jokes to get candies are extremely rare...

Many nations celebrate Nov 1st "All Saints Day" some celebrate Hallows Eve or Halloween. But to ban a holiday simply because of "las vacaciones de Norteamérica" is stupid, he's a dictator and a tyrant and needs to be clearly identified as one.

No pulling punches on that one. He's a dick-tator. :lol:

If banning Halloween is the biggest problem to you people from Chavez, then your priorities are messed up.

Kacen, there are plenty of problems that folks have with the bastard, the problem, you see, is that this is taking shit too far. Tipping the scales; putting too much water in the cup.

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation
