Greetings:

Here is an article that should twist your underwear in a knot.

Energy Crisis? Venezuela Gas Is Cheaper Than Water
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsartic ... rss&rpc=22

"Those gringos have everything -- so why does their gas cost so much?" asked Tinoco between chuckles as he navigated a midday traffic jam. "Don't they have oil reserves?"

Excuse me, but isn't "gringo" a pejorative term, that would be censored if it referred to South Americans? Of course that is a rhetorical question, and of course the answer is, "Yes, it would be censored."

From Dictionary.com
gringo
n : a Latin American (disparaging) term for foreigners (especially Americans and Englishmen)

From Answers.com
grin·go (grĭng'gō)
n. Offensive Slang., pl. -gos.
Used as a disparaging term for a foreigner in Latin America, especially an American or English person.

Aren't double standards great when you can get away with it?
