Venezuela Chavez' "Bolivarian" Computers

More comedy from Caracas! Hype From Hugo.

Chavez now decides to embark on building a so-called "Bolivarian" Computer for Venezuela, in a joint venture with a Chinese Company story here.

Underneath all the nonsense is the plain fact that this whole thing is no more than an assembly plant for Chinese-made computer components. Assembling computers has been done in basements, and in cheap-labor plants all over the world for years. So much for innovation, this is more maquilladora than "incubadora".

The computer you are using to type your ridiculous post is likely to be made with Chinese parts by Chinese people. Go get an education amigo!

^^^
"is likely to be made with Chinese parts"

Duh!

You just fell of the short bus dude.

You inadvertantly made my point. Chinese components are so widely used and readily available, that setting up an assembly plant for computers hardly constitutes a big deal. In fact, a Brazilian company is setting up an assembly plant in El Alto in Bolivia.

You should rename this blog.
How about: "Ignorance On Bolivia, Nicaragua, Latin America and US politics" That would be more accurate.

You swim in rethoric, ignorance and fear. You really fit the stereotype of the conservative idiot.

MiguelTercer: this guy most likely wants creationism taught as fact in schools. He most likely thinks we should nuke the world if they don't like the US, he most likely thinks Bush is a hero. Typical cookiecutter ignorant from OC. Just read his profile and the books he reads, it will give you an idea of how stupid he is.

Pepelito,

You are the epitome of liberal tolerance! You substitue ad hominem attacks for reason, because you have none. I can just feel the Bolivarian machismo oozing out your pores...

Dell is so full of shit!! all they do is assemble parts made in China and sell them as "dell" computers. What a stupid scheme, it sounds like something a "dictator" of a "backwards" "third world" country would do!

but you missed the mark, pepe. this here is a liberal idiot.

IGNORANCE: is a lack of knowledge, or a willful lack of desire to improve the efficiency, merit, effectiveness or usefulness of one's actions. Ignorance is also a "state of being ignorant" or unaware/uninformed.

Learn, idiots!

Geez, this Pepelito is pretty much up there on the stupid meter. The lemmings sure are getting dumber and dumber these days.

You Morons are so dumb, you don't even know your cartoons right.

IGNORANCE:
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge, or a willful lack of desire to improve the efficiency, merit, effectiveness or usefulness of one's actions. Ignorance is also a "state of being ignorant" or unaware/uninformed. Ex: In debate class Bill lost the debate because he was ignorant in that subject. (not knowing).

In politics, it is almost always used as a pejorative label, but some political movements have raised it to an ideal, for instance the Know-Nothings of the 19th century United States and some peasant and agrarian movements. This is usually simply a rejection of academia and professions and other power structures that assume they are intellectual superiors, that should be accorded deference by others.

Despite the admonition in some faiths that ignorance is bliss, some religions are particularly adamant that it does more harm than good. For instance, Islam views ignorance as a particular and unique evil that can and should easily be dispelled: "Seek knowledge, even as far as China." - Muhammad.

Secular philosophies also strongly condemn ignorance as illustrated in the classic story, A Christmas Carol where the Ghost of Christmas Present reveals to Scrooge the child like personifications of the major afflications of the world, want and ignorance, and the fact that the latter is more harmful.

In a society with a strong hierarchy or caste system, ignorance of the concerns of those one does not work or deal with directly may aid labour specialization, reduce jealousy and dissent, and otherwise serve the interests of social harmony. In such a society, control of any mass media tends to be carefully controlled, and one tends to perform one job for life.

There are few or no ethical traditions today that emphasize plain ignorance as a value. However, certain ideologies persist that find it useful or desirable.

When cultures meet however, ignorance can become particularly dangerous, as one's inability to comprehend the customs of others can lead to offense and thus harm. When Europeans began colonization of North America, there were many incidents in which conflict arose from unintended misunderstandings. There were of course also many bona fide clashes of values and bigotry - a particularly noxious byproduct of ignorance being racism and intolerance. In today's society, African, European and Asian cultures praise and reward those who endeavor to overcome ignorance (the fruits of their effort for instance, advancements in the field of Information Technology).

What is different is by and large seen as dangerous and threatening in animal cognition.

In humans, ignorance of another's lifeways or circumstances, failure to empathize with his or her experience, is cited in political science as one of the most common causes of conflict. Thus to build common experiences, e.g. to plant olive trees in regions where they have been torn up due to conflict, and learn at the same time, is thought to be one of the most effective forms of education and also of peacemaking. Crick's political virtues emphasize this kind of skill and activity where it is difficult or impossible to actually share perspectives.

This blog is a good example of ignorance.

I agree with Boli Nica ! This called bolivarian computer is an asembly of all chineese parts !! Nobody can't denied that. But it doesn't have to be a bad thing !! But it just have to be clear for everybody that the parts are no build in Venezuela ! Kind of the same that happens with the cars!!
In venezuela we just asambly most of the parts for the cars but we can not say that we do all the parts. It doesn't matter if the company is venezuelan o foreing, it just asamblies previuos made parts.

Gotta give some credits to Chavez for his foresight and leadership. Venezuela is finally on the move and much on its own. Keep up the momentum, and don't let the axis of true evils scares you.
