that dictator

Augusto Pinochet managed to live to 91. His regime tortured and killed 3,000 Chileans.

He overthrew the elected socialist government of Salvador Allende with the support of the United States.

Pinochet supporters would rather live under a military dictatorship than under a socialist government, even though it was democratically elected.

Plenty of European countries have had socialist governments elected - France, Spain, Sweden etc.

If there was a time for a coup, it should only occur when a government no longer abides by the principles of fair and free elections.

And the military should only be a caretaker until fair and free elections are held.

If the majority of the people vote for a socialist government, then they have chosen.

It was cold last night. I even stayed in bed all night (I usually hop off after my night time cuddle and my human is asleep and sleep on my mat in the living room).

I did a naughty thing though. This morning my human discovered that I had peed on his shorts that he leaves on the floor. He wasn't upset or angry with me, just worried that I might be getting old. The truth is, I was just being lazy.

I didn't feel like eating this morning and just went to sleep in my soft bed/basket on the couch.

Anyway, Emily came over tonight and she and my human had a rare roast beef with green vegetables. I didn't get any as usual, so I've just been nibbling at my cooked chicken dinner.
