When You Sleep With Dogs...

Hugo Chavez has expropriated the Venezuelan branch of glassmaker Owens-Illinois Inc., a U.S. Fortune 500 company. This proves two things...

1) Contrary to what many celebrities and liberals like to believe, Chavez really is a true socialist, and

2) If you lie down with dogs, expect to get fleas

Owens-Illinois kept there facilities in Venezuela in spite of the socialism of the state, and knowing there was no safety for any business. They have no cause to complain - any fool could have seen this coming. And any patriotic American business would not be doing business with Chavez in the first place.

The worst part - Chavez took the company because other food companies throughout the region require the glass containers. By controlling the supply chain, he indirectly controls the food supply in the area.

It would be a good thing if liberals would think about the consequences of that, and understand, finally, the dangers of socialism.

But they won't.
