    Supreme Electoral Council

    If the bird's banner is too small to read (I needed a magnifying glass ) it says "No Re-election."

    This last one has to do with the recently exposed bad behavior of some cops in Mga. The chief editor was harassed because he gave a cop some attitude instead of a bribe, they took him to the station, gave him all kinds of threats, etc.

    When a statement came out about how this was just an isolated example, lots of folks wrote into the paper about having similar experiences.

    To be sure about the relationship, it's understandable he behaves like that with them. After all, the similarities come from being his political uncles.

    The official celebration of his workers' day

    "I came to celebrate that they aren't going to run me for not going to the celebration."

    Or something like that.

    You've gotta remember that su/sus can mean his, her, their, yours.

    The pro-government's celebration of THEIR workers' day

    "I came to celebrate that they're not going to run me off (fire me) for going to the celebration".

    I'm still a little confused. Is that not an example of a double negative (permitted in Spanish)? I see two "nos."

    So should that not literally be "
    I came to celebrate that they're not going to run me off (fire me) for not going to the celebration. but one normally only translates only one "no" (which is how it is translated above; I'm asking is that the intended reason for only one negative in the translation??)

    I think I like it better with both negatives translated because it illustrates the intended paradoxical irony better in English, i.e., he went to celebrate that he wouldn't be fired if he didn't go (but ended up going anyway just to be safe)!

    Or???? Any comments appreciated!

    Thank Frog you're back, Cathy. Nica Spanish can be quite vexing. Please chime in with a better translation any time!

    Businessmen say, "Electoral observations?"
    "Not so many days off!"
    "A lot of abuse with road closures!"
    "Are you listening? You said you would and we believed you!"

    "And that's my fault?"

    Oooopssss! Good catch! Yes, indeed. We loves us some double negatives in Spanish. It should've definitely read "...for NOT having gone to the celebration".

    Same thing happened in VZ. Corpoelec, the nationalized electrical utility company, sent out a letter saying that ONLY the employees who attended the Chavez-run marches would be given a day off today. They took roll. Imagine...
