    Venezuela’s president ordered the country’s main beer producer to reopen its breweries or risk being jailed for ‘sabotaging the country’.

      Polar beer is horrible, even on a hot day.

    these actions are just a direct linear projection of progressive/marxist policy. it starts with mandated provision of services to protected groups, it is a very small step to mandated service to the state.

    I remember when they started producing black bandaids….that was 30 years ago…it was then I knew we were in trouble.

      That and when they stopped making the McDLT and started selling pizza instead.

        The McDLT was the best burger mcD’s ever did.

          I loved them.
          My car was littered with those white Styrofoam containers.
          And you know, it puzzles me, they have all these upscale sandwiches now and they keep bringing back the McRib every year for a limited run and no McDLT.

    Speaking of parasite socialist governments, CTV Barrie news had a report tonight on the never ending story of the hydro line to nowhere. Yes, remember the 120 million dollar hydro line that hasn’t been used yet after many years, because the last five miles of construction has been blocked by whiny indians in Caledonia. Well, it costs 5 million dollars in interest payments every year, which is paid for by taxpayers on their hydro bills.

    I had a dog I named Kaiser when I was a younker……even though he was named Kaiser he kept having litters of puppies…..I was never confused about any of it……he was simply an Alsatian named Kaiser in error…

    The ruling marxist clique in Venezuela are world class experts when it comes to economic warfare.That is why they have billions salted away in convenient third world financial institutions while starving peasants riot and foreign commies applaud them.
    There is a huge oil sands deposit in Venezuela too. Some day the PRC will get the concession and make it pay.
