“But Maduro is now threatening to expel CNN, which is about the fairest and most balanced news source on the planet.”

I laughed so friggin hard my teeth fell out!!
CNN leans so far to the left that they are horizontal! Never met a socialist or left winger they did not like. If they are out of favor you know things are going to hell in Venezuela!

I stopped reading right there because thanks to Fox News -- the fairest and most balanced news source on the planet -- and elsewhere (for example 1 | 2 | 3), I can appreciate that CNN's reporting is a crock.

Statements like that italicised above cause me to question young Master Stanley's assessment as being not nearly bleak enough.

One can only dream, but I'd rather feed the sharks to the sharks first (lawyers).

Once they're done, I want to know more about how Chavez' vote rigging system is used. Given his stake in Diebold, I'll bet the Democrats are using it here.

Hey, maybe that's why they're so quiet! ;-)

The President of Venezuela is living in the Vice President's residence because Chavez's kids won't leave the palace and he doesn;'t have the power to kick them out. Ironically the Vice President is married to one of the Chavez brats so he's living in the Big Hut.

Obama is trying to control 100% of the American Media... It seems that Obama is also Taking a Page Out of the Castro/Chavez Playbook.

“Socialism, disguise it how we may, is the negation of Freedom. That it is so, and that it is also a scheme not capable of producing even material comfort in exchange for the abnegations of Freedom, I think the foregoing considerations amply prove.” EDWARD STANLEY ROBERTSON

— Thomas Jefferson “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

— Thomas Jefferson “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

CUBA, Venezuela.. A disarmed people are an easy prey for tyrants... AMERICANS DON’T ALLOW ANY APPRENTICE OF TYRANT DISARM YOU!!!

Capitalism is the unequal distribution of wealth.

Socialism is the equal distribution of poverty, (with the exception of the ruling elites, who of course do very well for themselves )

Really? The author also seems to be longing for the good old days when Chavez was in charge.
