couple that with the scarcity of toilet paper, and they are now in DEEP SHIT.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of anti American communist sympathizer *******s.

I suggest we donate all our used toilet paper for re-used in Venezuela! [grin]

But THIS TIME socialism will work, right?
Tobias: You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised a number of couples to explore an open relationship where the couple remains emotionally committed, but free to explore extra-marital encounters.
Lindsay: Well, did it work for those people?
Tobias: No, it never does. I mean, these people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but ... But it might work for us.

Socialist Utopia. But gasoline is cheap. They've got that going. You can bathe with it, play with it, put it in your Rice Crispies.

Venezuela national average IQ is 84 = first world civilization not possible. Natural resources are irrelevant.

Edit: The IQ floor for first world status is around 90. There's data out there on IQ by US state. I expect it will surprise no-one that California is close to the bottom of the list and falling.

1. Massachusetts - 104.3
2. New Hampshire - 104.2
4. Vermont - 103.8
48. California - 95.5

That there is effing frightening. No medical care to speak of. No meds. No sterile equipment. No electricity to keep ventilators going. People are dying left and right.

If the SHTF around here, I'm grateful that I have a handful of MD's as good friends. And I suspect they'd be glad to help because of my firearms collection and ability to defend myself and others.

When the SHTF the barter system will come back like a tsunami. Currency won't be worth the paper it is printed on.

I recall reading that the government had jacked up the price of fuel to collect more money. I could be wrong on that, but I do recall they were paying pennies a gallon for fuel prior to the economic collapse.

Racist!

I had been reading a bit about this last week and it seems to be a major factor in why "diversity" does not work without government intervention.

"“I doubt that anywhere in the world, except in Cuba, there exists a better health system than this one,” Mr. Maduro said."

That's all you really need to read right there.

I plan on sending my old used batteries to Venezuela...just so they can siphon the last few electrons from their dead husks and possibly show them the miracle of electricity one more time before its lights out.

I asked a surgeon (Venezuala MD; US residency) what country he preferred for practicing medicine.

He told me Venezuala was really nice since doctors get paid in cash at the time of the procedure.

I'm always stunned that the average IQ in MA is that high. I sure as hell haven't met any anywhere near that level....lol.

IQ is not common cense, this state proves that.
We have many foreigners. Harvard, for example.
