    Default Venezuela’s Oil Production On The Brink Of Collapse

    What's this years crop of chickens look like?

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    "The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can. While it is perhaps true that "one cannot fool all the people all the time," it seems one can fool millions for centuries."

    Yes, I mean planting chickens: like burying them in the dirt, watering them, and expecting a crop.

    Not unlike this insanity, from the USSR.

    "The push to reopen the Chinese beef market likely was aided by the U.S. approval to allow fully-cooked Chinese chicken to enter the U.S., a deal that was also announced Thursday. Chinese chicken has been banned in the U.S. due to sanitary and health concerns."

    Yummm, extra lead.

    I see Wikileaks is blaming the US for Venezuela's problems. What a trash organization. It is always the mean old US causing Marxism to fail in Cuba and Chile and Venezuela and the USSR.

    Skimming the Wikileaks section on Venezuela I found no blame-casting for the country's problems. Where are those allegations?

    The only sanctions I found were against specific Venezuelan govt. employees.
