Hugo Chavez New Enemy of the State:  Fake Boobs (VIDEO)

With little good economic news in Venezuela you would think that the fact that Venezuela is the world’s leading market for breast augmentation would please President Hugo Chavez.

Not so.  The fact that some 30,000 to 40,000 Venezuelan women every year undergo breast surgery has irritated the very easily irritated Hugo Chavez.  He feels plastic surgeons are convincing women to have the surgery when they can’t afford it or don’t need it.  He laments the poor use of money when there is little resources in some households. 

Boob jobs have become so prevalent in the culture and economy of the country that it is routine to see bank finance ads for surgery or have political candidates offer breast lifts for votes.

In an interview over the weekend Chavez rattled off on state TV his many reasons for disliking breast surgeries with all of it boiling down to the fact that boob jobs don’t enhance his revolutionary priorities in anyway.  Describing the surgery as the path to other vices like teen pregnancy and drug addiction.
