If Bush I did it, it must be communism 

Today President Chavez announced a number of very good measures. One is studying possibly increasing the price of gasoline - something that no president in Venezuela has had the courage to do since an attempt in the late 80s led to turmoil.

He also proposed increases in what are known as luxury taxes:

CARACAS, Venezuela: President Hugo Chavez announced plans to slap taxes on luxury property including second homes, expensive cars and art collections on Sunday, targeting the rich to help fund his drive to remake Venezuela as a socialist society.

The last time this sort of tax scheme was thought of it was Vladimir Lenin doing it in revolutionary Russia. Oops, not it wasn't. The last time was when Moa did it in Red China. Oops, no it wasn't. The last time was when Fidel did it as he turned Cuba towards communism. Oops, no it wasn't.

The last time I can remember when a luxury tax was imposed on yachts, expensive cars, and jewerly it was in, of all places, the U.S.A., and it was done by none other than that infamous communist George Herbert Walker Bush.

Chavez following in the footsteps of Bush senior. I guess that must remove all doubt, the buy is a commie!
