Skip to comments.US Tells Venezuela to Resolve Newspaper shortages
Posted on 02/15/2014 6:06:16 AM PST by mgist
Venezuela has been in the midst of protest because of severe inflation, high crime, debilitating electric blackouts, and shortages of food. Protesters have been killed, and jailed, and they continue to protest in desperation.
This is how our country responds. The US government is asking Venezuela "to resolve it's shortage of NEWSPRINT and others materials that are "sqeezing" the nations dailies."
No mention of food, electricity, toilet paper, etc. It isn't a spoof my FRiends.

Except that in Venezuela NEWSPRINT is their toilet paper.
Let the NYT share some of their Canadian trees.
The newspapers were the only independent voices left.
The newspapers can't afford the newsprint at a 58 percent inflation rate, so they are shutting down.
Cuban trained government forces are just beginning to crack down.
This is getting ugly quick.
Bammy has his head in the sand.
No one in their right minds listens to ANY of our clown agencies any more.
Least of all the marshmallow major State(less) Department of Idiots or our Dork-in-Chief.
Because if the newspapers stop printing, the people might start looking to blogs to find out what’s happening in Venezuela. And we can’t have that.
Obama is afraid that if the poor people of Venezuela can not read about his great exploits in the newspaper they will succumb to total despair.
After all Obama is the embodiment of HOPE and change.
Sure is a good thing there’s no media bias or suppression occurring here in the US.
United Socialists of America - it’s what they do
Nice to know our government has its priorities straight...
And no mention of motorcycle riding government gunmen shooting dozens of people who are protesting against the government.
In socialist countries, newspapers are toilet paper. It’s all they have. Now they don’t even have that!
Who are we to tell that country what expeditures to make? Chavez would have flipped out over such an imperial attitude from Obama.
Time to send "Cambodia John Kerry" in to make things worse !!!!
Not possible, he hasn't pulled his head out of his arse in five years.
WRONG! That was when The Bozo was declared to have won the 2008 Presidential Election.
A red line drawn on news pring.
You show them just how tough you are little Barry.
So I guess they’re down to using their hands now. I hope they have soap.
