    That guy looks like a typical socialist slumdweller.

    There's talk of FAMINE this year in Venezuela.

    Yeah, double down.

    Starve out the Socialist that will solve a lot of the problems.

    Maybe that's been the plan all along

    Statism/Socialism always leads to Famine.

    What a stupid twit.

    While Oils was really valuable any sensible countries put a % of the money generated by production aside for a “rainy day”.

    Blame everyone else for their economic woes.

    Not easy to keep animals if you live in a block of flats.

    They really are just clueless.

    Maduro finally found someone dumber than himself and agree's with everything he says.
    Maybe it's for the best so VZ will crash and burn, then they can rebuild from scratch.

    These corrupt, socialist morons have destroyed a prosperous economy with their nationalization, control and thievery. Venezuela will not recover until the Chavistas are driven out of government, and people are free to manage their lives, businesses and property as they see fit. No government can manage anything as well as the individuals involved (even if they were trying to promote the general welfare, rather than increase their power and enrich themselves).

    Wouldn't trust him with cleaning public latrines.....looks like he'd try to steal the contents. Definitely he and MADurine have a lot in common.

    Like all socialists, this rube has but a superficial grasp of economics. He thinks he's so smart he can grab on the fly all the information he needs, which means he ignores whatever doesn't agree with his ideology. Hence, as all other of his ilk, he can keep coming up with silly “ideas” that have no chance in the real world.

    Meanwhile, people suffer because of his Olympian arrogance & obamaian ignorance.
