And I can barely get more than one day off at a time. Fark you idiots.

Maybe it's becuase they understand the President is full of shiat and they know that they are being pandered to.

So addition to food shortages and massive inflation, they don't want to have their education taken away?  Sounds like a reasonable position.

You want to pander to me with a few weeks off? Pander away.

Most students know Venezuela's form of socialism is idiotic and destructive. I guess I should say most rational students, not the one from U.S. Ivy leagues.

Nice to see at least one group of people cannot be bought with the offer of more "free stuff" from politicians.

When those politicians are arresting and/or killing your friends on a daily basis, at least.

No worries you got it right.

Venezuelan kids don't want a free week off?  Geez, no wonder Chavez and Maduro think Americans
are idiots! In the States, they'd probably want one even longer (it's called "spring break" by the college
crowd).

Wasn't Maduro legally voted in?  So they are violently protesting a legal process with gas bombs and deadly missles?  no sympathy for these douches when they get hurt.

Noticed in one pic that a "poor student" is wearing an Omega SpeedMaster.  Maybe the Miami slave masters are initiating this conflict under a false flag?

I also note that Rep. Ros-Lehtinen (R-Really a dumb-ass) is urging US intervention.

Actually, as someone who has been to Venezuela and lived in Colombia the students could wise up and stay off the streets.

What happens in Latin America is students(people) love to protest whether the cause is or isn't justified.  And there is never any organized marching.

The protesters hit the streets and immediately start throwing rocks and bottles at the cops.  They break windows in private homes and businesses and set cars and buses on fire, that have absolutely nothing to do with what they are protesting.  "Hey we are protesting not having shiat, so lets fark up the shiat we do have".

I would say 80% of the rioters were not actually participating, but went anyway because there is something ingrained in the latin american culture to rubberneck.

A sensible person would say "Hey, they are shooting over there, let me get behind this wall" while a Latin American will say "Let me go see what that is all about, hey why did I get shot".


I got caught up in a riot in Colombia when the mayor raised the tax on bus fares.

The people applied for a permit to march and be heard, and the city granted it for them, shut everything down and said go ahead let us hear you .

1. Instead of rioting on city hall, the people got drunk and took to the streets and set buses and taxis on fire and vandalized buildings.  All things which had nothing to do with the bus fares.

2. The riot police were place on corners in full gear and the water cannons were rolled out.  The people were asked to protest peacefully, but respect the property and each other.

So Cops who were minding their own business got pelted with rocks, the water cannons got firebombed, downtown was ransacked.  And the cops held off for about 30 minutes before entering the fray.

I was on my way home from seeing my sick girlfriend and the next thing I new i was caught in a haze of teargas and some jackass tried to mug me and i fought my way through the crowd to my office building who rolled up the metal security door about six inches and i scooted under.  The crowd died down a bit an I put on a baseball cap, slung it low and walked 5 miles home through skid-row.

What was accomplished, millions of dollars of damage to private property, and the mayor they were protesting was out of town.

They're not poor.

Who the fark has claimed they're poor?

The poor are mostly happy, given that they're bribed off with cheap food and rising wages. Something the economy of Venezuela obviously can't support.

Eh yeah no shiat, Americans thinks every thing concerns them.

Yeah, legitimately voted in. Keep telling yourself that. Second, I am no fan of the Cuban exiles or the CANF but this is purely a Venezuelan issue. Go watch vice guides episodes on Venezuela and maybe you will see how bad it is.

Labeling your national police force as being from a different South American country.

Shrewd move, or just merely confusing?

I worked in Venezuela in 1992, 2000, and 2010.  Compared to the US or Denmark, even the rich, middle class would be considered poor.

The poor in Latin America are "happy" to have food in the pot. Not necessarily the happiness you know of no military dictator, riot police, etc.

Are you one of those guys that did a six week tour around South America who thinks they now get the place and it's people?

Hey man, long time no see, whereabouts are you in the US?

Last time I read something from you was years ago when you got shot with a rubber bullet during a protest.

Eh no, and you also didn't present any information I weren't aware of.

The middleclass is stuggling in Venezuela. But that doesn't mean that they're not aware of their position in society, and that there's a far larger number of people who constitute a worse of class. That's the poor in this context.

But I was told is was a war for oil and Afghanistan was a war for some oil pipline, something about peak  oil was mentioned, GWB was supposedly going to declare martial law   oh and that Arctic Ice would have disappeared by now and the current administration would be the most transparent in history, put and end to warrant less wiretaps, close Gitmo and the need to raise the debt ceiling.  Something about millions of Chevy Volts being on the road by now along with milions of green and shovel ready jobs.
