    It is always a conspiracy!

    The economic catastrophe that is Venezuela isn't a conspiracy, it is a fact.

    Argentina has been tracking Venezuela since the Ks took over. It won't be long before this happens there.

    And to think we're heading down on that direction. Hell, Argentina has been imititating Venezuela for a few years now.
    2015 can't come soon enough, i really hope for a turn of events, but i doubt so. There are so many people brainwashed by the government.
    Socialism is idiocracy guaranteed and i don't want to think how we are going to get out of this one.

    Right, latin american socialism is so humanitarian that lets people starve to death.
    That explains the shortage of toilet paper. Why bother to get any if there is nothing to eat?

    Do you think we have gas chambers as in Europe? Do you think we make nuclear bombs like Europe? Do you think we destroy our habitat like Europe does?

    Do you think?

    @ 6 Mendocino

    It refers to the claim by the idiot bus driver, now president of the damned country (in all senses) tha a little bird visited him and claimed he was Chavez (the recently dead former president) and the bird talked to him about what he (the bus driver) should do to run the country.

    This idiot even had a model of the supposed little bird put on a straw hat and appeared in public with it claiming Chavez was with him. A lot of the supporters of Chavez (also stupid bastards ) and “Free Energy Stevie” fell for it.

    You can’t help these people, they got what they voted for: utter chaos.

    Brazil shit on Venezuelan democracy when it supported a fake election. This suggests that Brazil only cares about human rights when it is applied to like minded ideology.

    But now, that Brazil's Pyrrhic victory is coming to pass, the chaos developing in neighboring Venezuelan presents the opposition there with pure Gold. That is the opportunity to piss on Brazil during its limelight in front of the world. Not for revenge, but to force Brazil to do the right thing. To admit that the Chavista's are phonies and dangerous to all of South America.

    Brasileiro @8 “”Venezuela is from the place where the humanity is more human. ***** MERCOSUL *****“” where did that sh*t come from ??
    @10 “”Do you think we have gas chambers as in Europe? Do you think we make nuclear bombs like Europe? Do you think we destroy our habitat like Europe does?“”
    Your 1st 2 questions are too stupid for comment. As to your 3rd question “Do you think we destroy our habitat ”? the answer is a resounding YES ! where d'you live ? in a nice neighbourhood full of gardens and streets lined with trees ?? the Brazilians are notorious for not giving a damn about nature, and chopping down every f*****g tree they can ...excluding a few privileged neighbourhoods, Brazilian cities are cement jungles.... and you have the nerve to accuse Europe....go back to school to study !! that is, if you ever studied at all...

    @26 Brasileiro,
    Well, you will have that on your conscience.
    You are doing to the peoples of the Amazon & to the land, what you would like the Argentines to do to us.
    You are obviously an idiot.
    What is a “whimper of you”?
    Some Brazilian juju?

    We humans are merely guardians to this planet,
    And we have no sole rights,
    Other species , plants , and all other living creatures on this planet that we share with, have rights,

    Yet we destroy everything,

    The Brazilian rain forest is being destroyed,
    It must be stopped,
    Before we destroy the whole planet, just to satisfy the whims of the few,

    Just a environmentalist thought..

    @5 Yankee. This is exactly what I have been warning against for some time. I agree. For the future of Argentina, ref: VNZLA.
    also @7 Sir RR. I concur
    @10 Idiot!!! Isolde & Jack B & others are right. How dare you say that you can do what you like with the Amazon you fool. It is the lungs of the Earth... You make me too angry to engage with you, you fool.
    Meanwhile, back on topic... This is why there are riots in VNZLA.

    @33, Ilsen....don't expect the Brazzo asshole to reply...he never does. What makes me curious though, is how someone can be so devoid of a brain to state the absurdities that he /she/it , or whatever this piece of s**t is, does....must be poor nourishment, pollution, or the disease-ridden slum he hides in.

    @33 ilsen,
    i think that the Congo basin in central Africa is also part of the “lungs of the world”
    IMO, I believe that that is the reason why no-one has helped the Congolese nation to modernise itself with roads, railways, modern townships, air services etc.
    Keep it primitive, keep the virgin jungle, keep the trees pumping out oxygen.
    lts all for the benefit of the rest of us.
    But l agree with you, this Brasileiro kid sounds like a real plonker.
