Venezuela

This is really funny: a reporter went to a mall in Venezuela shopping for socialism and communism. Exposes Trump and MSM as liars.



El socialismo es la minoría.

That's what a character wrote in a short story O'Rourke wrote when he was 15. A character, who is the narrator, in a story that a teenager wrote. I mean, O'Rourke is probably a dick, though he's a democrat so he's a capitalist. But jeez.....You are the King of confirmation bias.

And Robert Deniro killed a lot of people. Spiderman is real.



I know you are just expressing yourself. You're right. You just proved socialism is bad.

your post will go viral. you've saved us...

Yes, Jakob is storytelling to prove a point.. I'm glad somebody's got that. =D>

Philosophy is like cable TV, it has many channels.
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Something for him to note, in that case..

Discussions from other sites seem to be spilling out onto ILP.. it's like WWE SmackDown in here.

Some of it is a bit old, but looks like something we’ve seen before. (Challenging the mighty dollar is a serious offense)

Yeah, but at least Venezuelans are free. Unlike certain orange northern European countries...

But I do gotta say, these Russian/Chinese beads are BULLSHIT.

Wait, we are not free? We did not just have real elections where a real hero vanquished the socialist cabal?

Do tell.

Also how much freedom it gives to have your socialist cabal leader hand out the countries riches for Chinese and Russian pearls.

Educate me in freedom.

Freedom is not relating overmuch to the structures of authority.

In a nutshell.

Gad, I'm so surely glad that my inversive bias has been confirmed. After all delayed maturity at 15 is not as uncommon as previously thought.
