Editor’s Note: There are few places as chaotic or dangerous as Venezuela. “Life in Caracas” is a new series of short stories that seeks to capture the surreal quality of living in a land in total disarray.

“We don’t have any.”

:roll:


Yeah....I'm sure that's going to fix everything.

The Chavez and now Maduro governments have devalued the currency on multiple occasions, yet we are.

It’s all the USA’s fault cuz we sanctioned a dozen or two of the Venezuelan government leaders (not the country itself). That of course means that millions will starve.

So that's the current Commie apologists' excuse, I take it?

Shamefur dispray!

I guess they think the rampant gov't strong-arm takeovers of private businesses had nothing to do with it's economic collapse, along with other willfully ignorant dismissals of reality. :lol:

You have to believe somebody around Maduro (if not Maduro himself) is aware they f***** up the country massively.

Where is the fun in running Venezuela? Every day there is a new pile of fresh dog shit to clean up. Seems like you bring in some opposition leaders to spread the disaster around and make sure the big beach house in Mexico or Colombia is owned by a shell company so you have an exit route.

It is also amazing that poor people in South America fall for the same bullshit over and over again. Everyone over 30 in Venezuela has seen half a dozen neighboring socialistic regimes fail miserably.
