The Venezuelan Socialist Diet

  • @KUSTEVE You haven’t updated this in a while… Recently introduced a Crypto Currency backed by an Oil Company that is $45B in debt. This supposedly reduces the worth of the Bolivar by 96%.


    I read where inflation is now 1 million percent…unheard of and unprecedented. Also, the government finally and officially admitted that the socialist economic model was a failure, something everybody has known for years.

  • This is a 4 part series where a former USSR citizen asks people supporting socialism and communism to explain it: it’s pretty funny…

  • The great lie of socialism is that the workers will suddenly have “power”( meet the new boss- same as the old boss). Read how “powerful” they are, as they line up to buy spoiled, rotten meat:

  • Step 2: Crash all of the South American economies to create chaos, fear, and massive migration:

  • Nicaragua on the brink of collapse. Ortega has hired criminal gangs to shake people down, especially his opposition. Another socialist paradise on the brink of total anarchy:


  • Apparently the U.S. talked about supporting a coup against Maudro. Not surprised. Needs to probably happen soon.

  • Here’s a brilliant idea: when monetary inflation has hit a million percent, raise the minimum wage 60 times higher, and don’t allow businesses to raise prices. Socialist math = 40% of businesses closing down…

  • @KUSTEVE I just read that the accused plotters of the drone attack on Maduro mysteriously fell out of an upper level window. Geez, conditions must be really getting bad there if the thugs in the secret police can’t afford helicopters like they used to in Latin America.

    Edit: Oops, it was just one guy who threw himself out of the 10th floor bathroom window.

  • @KUSTEVE The newly elected right-wing President of Brazil is showing that the dangers we face have nothing to do with political ideology. The danger, as it was with the near simultaneous growth of Communism and Naziism in the 20’s, is TOTALITARIANISM. Extremists, regardless of left or right, seek to destroy the rights of any opponents. This is a section from an article in The Nation:

    Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s president-elect, who won Sunday’s second-round vote with a staggering 55 percent of the ballet, is an open fascist, a violent phobe of every decent thing. A misogynist who said he would rather see his son dead than accept him as gay, Bolsonaro is an agent of the world’s most reactionary tendencies, someone who joins fake-news-style social-media manipulation to old-fashioned death-squad repression. The makeup of Brazil’s congress looks grim as well, and the military will have his back—there’s little foreseeable break on what he can do. Markets are soaring. Global proud boys are dancing.

    The mega-dozers are revving their engines, and the earth will be pushed to the limits, as Bolsonaro peeled off some of the landless vote by promising he’d remove prohibitions on colonizing the vast Amazon, even as his soy, lumber, mining, and cattle backers will lay waste to far larger swaths than any peasant ax could. “For Canadian business, a Bolsonaro presidency could open new investment opportunities,” the CBC reported last night shortly after the results were announced, “as he has pledged to slash environmental regulations in the Amazon rain forest and privatize some government-owned companies.” “Our Amazon is like a child with chickenpox, every dot you see is an indigenous reservation,” Bolsonaro has said, promising to do away with land set-asides for native peoples.

    Brazil is one of the world’s largest economies, so it’s not hyperbole to say the election is a geopolitical Pittsburgh massacre. During the campaign, Bolsonaro’s supporters targeted his opponents for violent hate crimes, including carving a swastika into the skin of a 19-year-old woman carrying an LGBT flag. The crackdown on universities began even before his final victory. [EDIT by Mayjay: Over 20 universities were raided by military police, seeking teachers’ materials about fascism.] Just a week ago, Brazil’s new president-elect pledged that upon winning he would carry out “a cleansing never before seen in the history of Brazil.” Last year, he said he’d “give carte blanche for the police to kill.” Election day wasn’t even over when São Paulo’s new governor said he’d pay for the “best lawyers” to defend police who execute criminals. The targets will be, overwhelmingly, poor urban black boys and men, along with rural land and environmental activists.

  • This was a truly awful result. Humanity as a whole was worse for it. I know people in Brazil and I am genuinely concerned for them. It was already hard enough for LGBT there…

  • Also worth noting that Lula da Silva was going to win, and was thrown in jail on bullshit charges, put in solitary confinement and no one has access to even talk to him.

  • @mayjay You’re falling for the rhetoric. They are trying to justify the onslaught of violence they will wreak across Brazil to battle such a “monster”. They need cover to justify all the terrible acts they plan on committing against the “tyrant”. Once they begin the terror, the “tyrant” will strike back with some pretty crummy solutions. This is all planned, all choreographed, and the same actors running Brazil are running the same game in the US. This is all a scam…Trump and Bolo are in on it, too. Their job is to piss off the left, which causes them to react, which causes the right to react. Trump will be president when they crash the stock market. When that happens, it will be easy to start the civil war. I have no doubt civil war is the goal. And there will be civil war all across the world, as the formula is repeated again and again. This is " Death Of A Nation State" 101.
