General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.

 

The plant was confiscated on Wednesday as anti-government protesters clashed with authorities in a country that is roiling in economic troubles such as food shortages and triple-digit inflation.

It is not good what is happening down there. You can work hard, be intelligent, and still not have any food at the end of the day. Halliburton no longer operates in Venezuela so the company i work for has an extremely large presence.

In hindsight, turning the entire country over to a bus driver might not have been such a bright idea.

It's a start but they need to get bit in the ass over a larger spread of 2nd world countries before the lesson really sinks in.

Maybe they will wise up and move some jobs back to the US.  You know, like Ford is doing.

What's the opposite of a mic drop? On a side note, this has to be the United States fault somehow, right? Sean Penn is busy crafting that narrative.

Trump supporters want past quotes? Really want to go there?

Bernie is an idiot? What does that make Trump?
Bernie is far more intelligent than Trump or you or I.

On a serious note. Do you think they will ask for US help? Many are already screaming for humanitarian aid. I'm guessing we lead that department. Even though the world hates us.
If and when they do ask....and no guarantee. What do you think Trump says?

It's funny, while President Trump is in Wisconsin the other day saying buy American, hire American, the figurehead of the Democratic Party, Lizzy Warren, is on the View yelling "Russia". Like a bag lady on the corner. They think they have a chance.

I will say one thing about Bernie. He really duped you idiots into giving him millions of dollars. I often wonder which of his three houses he's tweeting from when he spews his socialist propaganda.  

 

Oh yeah that's right. Even though socialism has failed time and time again, it's not REAL socialism. It'll totally work here.

I'm not nearly as far on the political spectrum as many of you here. I consider myself fairly moderate.

But I remember watching Roger and me for the first time thinking why the fock is he blaming all of Flints problems on GM?

So I guess I missed his message

I gave zero money to him.
You calling what he says socialist propaganda again only exposes your ignorance. The best you all can come up with is a quote from 2011. Again...youball dont want Trumps past words brought up...it makes you look dumber than ever for supporting that jackass.

And no...Bernies policies are not real socialism and the more socialistic stuff would t have gotten thru congress.

Buddy worked in Venezuela a couple years back (exec with phone company). Said the company had a "ransom fund" set aside, because kidnappings were so common.

His quote was 6 years ago...you want to try and compare that to what has happened recently there.

 

Again...I don't think you want past quotes if you think that is a sign of Stupid...you voted for a guy with dumb quotes in the past and present.

But the exact thing that Bernie was commenting on when speaking of Venezuela (their new found socialism) is what laid the groundwork for the collapse. Try and keep up.

You should try and keep up if you think that is all that happened in Venezuela.

And that he had not proposed the same type of things here that have gone on there.

But that would cause you again to educate yourself...something you have shown over and over you are unwilling to do.
