OAS/OEA opaque obloquy...

Well it's not opaque really, it is clear as crystal: the OAS is corrupt, emasculated, inept and as about as much use as a chocolate teapot; in fact not even that because at least you could eat the teapot. "La OEA silencia a la oposiciĆ³n venezolana" [La Nacion, Spanish] , "Permanent Council of the OAS silences Venezuelan opposition" [El Pais, English]. "We do it for transparency" said the sinister fuckwit Venezuelan representative Roy Chaderton {facepalm}; you may remember him calling other delegates mentally ill. Argentine ambassador Nilda Garre said "There is need for us to discuss this"; her being Kristina's bitch you'd expect nothing else. Brazilian ambassador Breno Dias da Costa missed his own irony by "We don't need to allow the OAS to become a circus", oops too late Breno, you just did.

Another point, albeit moot: is it 'fair' that Antigua and Barbuda (pop. 82,000) has the same vote equivalence as Mexico? Or that Saint Nevis and St. Kitts (pop. 52,000) has the same vote as the USA or Colombia or Canada?
