OK We All Know Our News Reporting Services Can’t Get The Facts Within Their Stories Right But You Would At Least Think They Could Get Their Headlines Right

I saw a Headline on the front page of my Newspaper a few days ago that read, “Crisis Deepens in Venezuela After Maduro Backers Storm Congress”.

Below the Headline was a Picture of three members of Venezuela’s National Assembly. Two of them are bleeding from their heads and had their own blood all over their clothes as a result of the Maduro Backers having stormed the Congress with guns, pipes and sticks.


Maduro is trying desperately to stop an election that will likely show the voters want him gone. Whether he goes gone after the vote is taken is another problem.

Are you laughing at our media’s incompetence along with me? Pretty funny, is it not?

What’s that you just said? You said you don’t see anything that is so inaccurate or is so funny? I can’t believe you sometimes. I would think you are not too smart, if it were not for the fact that you read my Foolishness…Or Is It? Blog Postings. The fact that you read my silliness shows that you are smart but, come on, you have to be more aware of what is going on around you than this!

We all are familiar with Venezuela’s ongoing disaster…Or are we?

Venezuela is, for all practical purposes, is a Failed State...

Ø Venezuela has 298.4 Billion Barrels of Oil Reserves. That’s more than any other country on earth. That’s 30.1 Billion Barrels more than second place Saudi Arabia.

Ø Venezuela used to be one of the more prosperous countries in South America.

Ø Venezuela’s Inflation is out of sight.

Ø The absolute basics of life are not available at all or are in extremely short supply.

Ø Venezuelans are running across neighboring country’s borders to get darn near anything and everything…Toothpaste, Toilet Paper, Food, etc.

Ø They are also fleeing into neighboring countries at a very high rate.

Ø Their Democracy is in a shambles having been replaced by a “Democratic” Dictatorship.

Ø In the past three months, almost 100 demonstrators have been killed.

OK, I’ll give you one more shot at what’s wrong with the Headline above. I’ll wait…………………………….

You still don’t see what’s wrong, or said more pointedly, what ought to be absolutely impossible?

It’s the two words, “Maduro Backers”. That can’t possibly be right! How could there be people that still back Maruro in a country that has been an ongoing disaster for so many years now?

There can’t possibly be any Supporters of Maduro left in the Entire Country…Or can there be?

Would I kid you?
