It's almost Junta time.

To say that Venezuela is a cluster-f*** is to give a bad name to f******.

It should be learning point no. 237 about central command economies...but it won't. Some idiot will try the same thing in 3 years and poor people will vote for it. What is it with former Spanish colonies?

I was under the impression, from the article, that the Venezuelan GM plant was originally meant to supply Venezuela, and maybe some other South American countries.

Of course it wouldn't surprise me if they used it to completely off-shore specific stuff in a bid for cheap labor, or later did so.

Don't care who their target customer base is. Make it in the USA or get fucked when someone nationalizes your assets. I wouldn't waste a drop of Federal US political or military clout trying to fix things for GM when shit happens overseas.

The partee continues ...

... After weeks of violent protests that left at least 22 people dead, Venezuelans will take to the streets Saturday dressed in white to pay tribute to those killed in anti-government demonstrations this month.

The peaceful demonstrations planned nationwide come after at least 13 people were killed in one day in the capital of Caracas.

Thousands of Venezuelans marched in silence to remember those killed in three weeks of protests against the government of President Nicolas Maduro.
In the capital, Caracas, protestors dressed in white were blocked from reaching the office of the Roman Catholic archdiocese.
Similar marches took place across the country.

Soooooo.... tell me.


Who else predicted this whole Communist timeline happening, as it has, awhile back?

Most of us, no?


Where's Red James when you need to Neener Neener and "Told You So"? Does someone know the Rite of Commie Summoning?

Video: Venezuelan armored vehicle plows into crowd of protesters

POSTED AT 10:01 PM ON MAY 4, 2017 BY JOHN SEXTON

If a large truck drives into a crowd of people in most places in the world, you might suspect another terror attack had taken place. In socialist Venezuela, it’s the government that’s responsible.

Footage published Wednesday shows an armored vehicle belonging to the Venezuelan National Guard driving into a crowd of protesters and knocking them aside.



It’s not clear if anyone is actually run over by the vehicle, though a motorcycle does get stuck between the wheels. Between this and his plan to rewrite the constitution (to avoid elections) President Maduro’s regime is dropping the last pretense of civilized democracy.

This week Financial Times published an excellent video report titled “Thug Nation: Venezuela’s broken revolution.” While some of this material has been presented before, this clip features interviews with people who supported the socialist revolution but who now realize it was a mistake.

“Deep inside we are revolutionaries because we believed that society needed a change to ease so much misery and poverty,” a shopkeeper named Carlos Gonzalez says. He continues, “We believed in [Chavez’s] ‘Bolivarian Revolution’ and we supported it. But now we see that revolution is not what was proposed to us back then.”

And don’t miss the colectivo thugs sporting Che Guevera jackets who spout party disinformation as if it were gospel truth. This is worth 16 minutes of your time.






The 2nd video above is particularly interesting.
