Venezuela
Oct 2017

If at first you don’t succeed…

Who among us could have predicted this?

Friends in all the wrong places

Sep 2017

“There comes a time when you get tired of being a slave.”

Saber rattling from somebody who can’t afford a saber

Two of these things are not like the others.

Not exactly critical of authoritarian states

“On a suicide mission for himself.”

Good luck getting paid

There will be a special speaker anyway

Not surprising, but frightening none the less

Aug 2017

The long slide into darkness continues

Run for your life

Mr. Maduro has some friends after all

Shutting down the last of the free media

“…hunger forced her into the only job she could find at 14.”

“We will not stand by as Venezuela crumbles.”

“Welcome to politics…”

“…installing a dictatorship in Venezuela.”

“Many options for Venezuela.”

“Cabello might have gone as far as to contact ‘unspecified Mexican nationals’ in connection with his plan to harm Rubio.”

Sunday morning talking heads

Moooooooooch.

There is no “military option” for Venezuela

Jazz Shaw Aug 12, 2017 8:31 AM

Not a good one, anyway

Central Authority

“If the criterion for censorship is that nobody’s feelings can be hurt, we are finished as a free society.”

“…things can always get worse, and worse, and worse.”

A possible military revolt in Venezuela?

Jazz Shaw Aug 07, 2017 8:01 AM

If it’s a rebellion it’s a small one… so far

“I can’t permit my country to become a dictatorship. And yesterday’s installation of the Constituent Assembly was the birth of dictatorship in Venezuela.”

Reuters: Massive fraud.

Will Maduro’s military turn on him?

Jazz Shaw Aug 02, 2017 10:41 AM

That would make for an interesting twist

He’s not listening

Jul 2017

“we’re going to have to augment the hypercapitalism which will provide the growth of the hypersocialism”

Venezuela is now either Cuba or North Korea

Jazz Shaw Jul 31, 2017 8:01 AM

The deed is done

The end of any semblance of democracy, anyway

“It is prohibited throughout all national territory, all public meetings and demonstrations, gatherings and other similar acts…”

This is how Venezuela might become the next Cuba

Jazz Shaw Jul 26, 2017 12:31 PM

Maybe, but not terribly likely

And they may go to jail for it

“We must all do our best to get rid of this tyrant.”

Donald Trump just put Venezuela on notice

Jazz Shaw Jul 18, 2017 2:01 PM

Smack down

“freedom does not go backwards, democracy is not negotiated”

But still not on his way home
