A major first amendment crisis is emerging from Venezuela. The government of Hugo Chavez has taken “The Simpsons” off the air as inappropriate for children. Until this moment, I did not see how dangerous this man really is to world peace.
This move against the Simpson follows a similar ban in China, click here.
Chazez has long appeared to be playing with less than a full deck. Yet, nothing prepared us for this. Not only did he yank the Simpsons but he replaced the show with that Mr. Rogers-approved child program: “Baywatch Hawaii.” Now, children can watch virtually naked men and women destroy the theater arts by bad acting and worse writing.

Chavez is precisely what Homer warned us about: “Your lives are in the hands of men no smarter than you or I, many of them incompetent boobs. I know this because I worked alongside them, gone bowling with them, watched them pass me over for promotions time and again. And I say… This stinks!”
Of course, the real reason appears the content-based fear of the Simpsons as a continual lesson on constitutional rights and principles, click here
One can only seek refuge in prayer:
Homer prayer #1: “Dear Lord: The gods have been good to me. For the first time in my life, everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is. So here’s the deal:
You freeze everything the way it is, and I won’t ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. OK, deal. In gratitude, I present you this offering of cookies and milk. If you want me to eat them for you, give me no sign. Thy will be done.”
Homer prayer #2: “I’m not normally a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me, Superman!”
