the venezuelan system doesn't work, and the people are organically angry about that, with the venezuelan govt

it has nothing to do with the usa

i don't know how or why you frame this as the usa doing something it did in the cold war, when all of the angry venezuelans on the street right now are in the street because of how fucked up the system is in venezuela is right now, because of something their own govt is screwing up. nothing to do with the usa at all

you don't really have any understanding of the situation in venezuela. you have the same tired old cold war thinking that the propaganda by the venezuelan government deploys. which, because as the existence of people like you show, still works as propaganda

but it has nothing at all to do with reality. the cold war is long over

with venezuela, the kneejerk "blame america" is pretty swift and is standard

when venezuelans started protesting last week, they kicked out some american diplomats in response


1. the usa is pushing magic buttons in washington dc and making venezuelans revolt (and not the actual issues and problems about venezuela the people revolting articulate)

2. it's a tired bullshit cynical ploy that, unfortunately, still works with large enough of the population that it is still worth doing

or... i dunno, as an american, maybe i have dark magical powers over venezuela i have not fully explored

let's obsess over the cause of a fire that has nothing to do with the battery... and only happened once and probably has absolutely nothing to do with the car's engineering?

and let's ignore the thousands of accidents with gasoline every year that kill or maim?

you're doing exxon mobile proud, slashdot editors. thanks for featuring this "story" so prominently

i never said romney was extreme right. i said he *had to appeal to* the extreme right

he had to compete for votes from tea party loony toons with wackjobs like santorum and cain and bachmann

and romney's problem wasn't trying to be a democrat, that's called "trying to win the election by appealing to the moderate center," which, in your bias, you've called "trying to be a democrat"

which is exactly how and why the right will not win the white house in the future: they view being a moderate as some sort of RINO betrayal. this is how and why republicans lose elections, this ideological inquisition

and so, as a democrat, i say, "keep it up, tea party, thanks for destroying the republican party with your inflexible, intolerant, rigid extremism"

the point is you want politics to be something it never was and never will be

it's *politics*, not polite academic debate society

all of the ugliness in politics you dislike is the whole point of politics

all you are telling me here is you don't understand the subject matter. you can't just wave a magic wand and make people behave like robots. of course people aren't robots. but they behave like feral beasts in politics. of course people aren't feral beasts either. but in POLITICS they are
