Well, well, well. What have we here? Democracy NOT “restored” in Honduras after all?
“Te-goosey-goosey-galpa–Knock ‘er down and scalp ‘er!Up hers! H’ and your ass!Nobody will halp ‘er!”–from The Sheep Look Up, by John Brunner. Sung to the tune of “Goosey Goosey Gander”.
Oh, cry me a river, Pepe. You and your Yankee bosses know full well that democracy was not restored when you were “elected”. You knew it at the time of your farcical “election”. Which you would not have won if REAL democracy had existed in Honduras. Well, you had democracy once, but you eated it. You might have had it, if you’d let Mel Zelaya finish out his mandate and hold the Fourth Ballot, the one that would have convoked a constituent assembly to rewrite the Honduran Constitution–this time on DEMOCRATIC lines. But noooo, you had to have your little banana putsch. You had to have the military bundle Mel onto a plane in the dead of night, in his pajamas. And since you’re stuck with the OLD constitution, the one written by the generals during the dictatorial 1980s, you’re fucked. Suck it up, cupcake–you’re not popular, and you’re not even really president.I wonder if that Facebook troll (undoubtedly from Washington, DC) who lamely tried to tell me What Hondurans Really Want is reading this. If you are, “Liberty Heights”, take a good goosey gander at this. There’s your “democracy”. Go live in it, and may a drug gang or some other assassin give your brainless antidemocratic existence the ending it deserves.
A year after the coup that ousted Manuel Zelaya, the new Honduran president warns some want him to be next.Porfirio Lobo says he is the target of a new plot by some of the same wealthy businessmen who supported Zelaya’s removal.Himself a wealthy rancher who supported the coup, Lobo surprised his own political party when he denounced the conspiracy, warning: “I know who you all are.”The claim — made less than a month before Monday’s first anniversary of the coup — laid bare the lingering instability of a desperately poor country where a few prosperous families call the shots.[…]The violence — and Lobo’s allegations of a coup conspiracy — threaten to undermine the message the president has spent months selling to the world: that Honduras is a thriving democracy and should be welcomed back into the Organization of American States, which suspended the Central American country after the June 28, 2009 coup.
