    Have you tried the Illuminati?

    Barry fans just blame Bush for all their failures.

    First, demonise those Third World leaders who won’t play the game (cf. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins). Then Allende, Torrijos or Noriega them.


    Limitless wealth for the 1% in the Third World country and the US (sometimes shared with the Western European 1%). Significant reduction in living standard for the rest in the Third World country.

    The “scriptures” have it wrong. The rich are already in “heaven”.
    The rest of us don’t even have a needle to go thru the eye of.

    Morin must have forgotten that this is one of the socialists he idolizes and preaches emulating here.

    I think the crisis in Venezuela should be of special interest to all those occupy idiots who kept demanding a redistribution of wealth.

    This is the ultimate demise of every Socialist economy.

    We need to crack down on toilet paper makers in the U. S. for depriving the Venezuelans of such an essential.

    Main thing is that Maduro continued the worst parts of Chavez’ policies without the relatively good bits, or the smarts Chavez had.

    “Does anyone really know the what and why of Venezuelan situation ?”

    Try Al Jazeera, Adrian. They’ve been covering both sides in Venezuela at length this morning.

    Heh Adrian – Try reading a Newspaper once in awhile. The Venezuelans are getting tired of the shortages. Shortages produced by people unwilling to work and take risks because they know the State will rob them of their efforts.

    Where-ever you have weak property protections (Warlords, Communists, Socialists) you have lower productivity and eventually shortages.

    You may not like conservative posts but you can’t possibly be thinking that if you ignore the situation it just won’t matter to your liberal bubble.

    Venezuela was doing fine as long as oil was in high demand. Then along comes fracking which allows the US to become very good at producing their own oil again. The price of a barrel declines and Chavez can’t get enough cash to pay for all those social programs his supporters demand.

    This is a warning for the rest of us as well. Oil is entirely fungible and will go where the cash to pay for it is. If Venuzuela has a major strike, the price of oil and then Gas will go up. Look for $4 and $5 gas come summer.

    Cheap oil, arable land, clean water.

    None of these is getting more plentiful.

    Regardless of who gets the blame the shortages and prices will continue to get worse and continue to spread to more advanced countries no matter the form of government.

    $5 gas, soon it will be a fond memory.

    Good post, but if the Keystone Pipeline is built and more land is opened up to fracking, we could be oil independent for decades. Independent except, of course, for Canada who is more than willing to cooperate since they save hundreds of billions on defense per year thanks to their superpower friend the U.S.

    Somebody ran out of their Dr prescribed greenery today.

    Yeah, and they learned from bush, who blamed everything on Clinton. Who had left him peace and prosperity, both of which bush threw away on 9/11.
