It Is Now Against The Law In Venezuela To Stand In Line To Buy Food

Mariana Zuñiga and Nick Miroff, Washington Post: In a hungry Venezuela, buying too much food can get you arrested

BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela – The hunt for food started at 4 a.m., when Alexis Camascaro woke up to get in line outside the supermarket. By the time he arrived, there were already 100 people ahead of him.

Camascaro never made it inside. Truckloads of Venezuelan troops arrived in the darkness, arresting him and nearly 30 others seemingly pulled from the queue at random, according to his lawyer. Camascaro, 50, was charged with violating laws against interfering "directly or indirectly" with the production, transportation or sale of food. He has been in jail for three months, awaiting a hearing.

“I went to see the prosecutors and explained that he was just buying some food for his family. He’s not a bachaquero,” said Lucía Mata, Camascaro’s attorney, using the Venezuelan term for someone who buys scarce, price-capped or government-subsidized goods to resell on the black market.

No food lines proves no food shortages.

Starvation avoided. Socialism Works! Huzzah!

North Korea has had repeated famines. RRH defends them to the hilt.

Why isn't RRH defending this socialist paradise?

Will Ombamacare cover a glass bellybutton? If so Aizino should seriously consider the procedure. His head is stuffed so far up his a$$, it would certainly improve his vision.

I defend N. Korea "to the hilt"?

Do tell....

Oh look,

a questionnaire....

On a another story RRH, you did just that.

No, RRH I will not get a glass belly button. It is not my thing and I do not want to attract a reject such as yourself.

RRH said...

You should. It'll improve your outlook.

Show me where I backed them "to the hilt" Little Wolfowitz.

Just like little Breitbart wordgame buddies, you've conveniently "missed" where I've poked fun at and critcized them

By lying, "filtering", and twisting of words is are par for the course for you. As is avoiding physical labour I'll bet.

I just searched 40 posts on the subject of N. Korea going back as far as February.

Of that forty, I could find a grand total of two where I made a comment. Neither of which could be remotely construed by any sane, or intelligent human being (I guess that excludes Aizino on three counts) as backing N.Korea "to the hilt".

On further reflection, a reasonable individual (another disqualifier for His Divine Eminence) would expect to encounter far more than two measily posts out of forty on the subject from an accused "to the hilt" defender of Kim -Only Upstaged By Aizino For Living In His Own World- Jong Il such as myself. A reasonable individual may even come to expect said defender oof Kim to post a "to the hilt" defence at every opportunity.

Just sayin....

Now,

a perusal of said forty posts will find our Aizino never missing a chance to enthrall the blogging community with his comments born of upper class erudition and probity; hereunto referred to as running his big stooooooopid mouth. We could also find Mr. Smith "farting unicorns" out of said mouth namely "operational and tactical victories" during the greatest crime ofcthis century (so far, give his kind time), the invasion and dedtruction of Iraq. A crime he "defends to the hilt" without reservation.

Aizino, once again on this forum you have pulled down your pants and bared your true self to the world as a fraud, liar, and a lazy c---.

Now,

go get that f'n operation.

But you have.

It was something along the line of mean evil USA telling North Korea what to do and you were happy that they NORKs were standing yup to the U.S.

It betrays your whole mind set.

You cannot betray your DNA.

RRH said...

"Yes you did. Yes you did na na nana ns na...." betrays your whole mind set.

Bein' stupid, hysterical, and sketchy.

And your head measuring posing as science is as low brow as your general ideological outlook.

But anyway,


That is not defending anyone "to the hilt". The point is that the U.S. record is not much better than anyone else's on, well, ANYTHING. So, the North is right to tell them to pound salt.

I'd say the same of Lord Lucifer Himself if one of you, what was it, "pure as the driven snow" MFERs called him out.

Something along the line....

Lazy c---.

Congrats
