Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge: Hugo Chavez dreamed of one day throwing off the shackles of the western world, claiming Venezuela’s gas reserves for itself. Chavez said doing so would make the country enormously wealthy and the Venezuelan people happy beyond their wildest imaginations.

Sadly, yesterday’s promises are today’s sorrows. Consumer prices have risen 56% since Nicolas Maduro took power in 2013. Venezuelans sometimes go weeks without running water or access to food. The poorest among them, sadly and ironically, have to wait in line for gas–the one substance Venezuela is known best for.

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge: In Venezuela, the National Guard can be seen playing Venezuelan revolutionary cowboy music during raids of towns. The music is meant to “inspire loyalty” to Maduro’s Socialist Revolution. How ….1940s?

In Venezuela, all government lackeys–officials, national police, and national guard own brand new cars.

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge: Can’t root out Maduro protesters in a neighborhood? Well, take it out on the neighborhood. Maduro’s National Guard typically enter a city or small town, steal items and destroy private property.

The smoke you see here is from the library of a university that preaches capitalism and free markets in some of its classes. The University’s teachers were deemed radicals by Maduro. The Los Colectivos entered the school, burned its library, and the National Guard sat on the gates watching while the school burned to the ground.

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge

Venezuela: The Untold Story - Daily Surge: Venezuela is a country in crisis, a country consumed by the consequences of decades of unfettered socialism and dictatorial rule. The death of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez created a vacuum that Nicolas Maduro quickly filled. It has been nearly a month since U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Pope Francis urged an end to the violence that has consumed Venezuela.

Nicolas Maduro was “elected” in 2013 under suspicious circumstances. He has done nothing to improve the country’s unemployment rate. He has virtually destroyed Venezuela’s tourist economy. And Maduro has somehow managed to tank the price of oil — Venezuela’s only natural resource worth exporting.

Indeed, at the center of the violence in Venezuela is that country’s National Guard. Under President Maduro’s reign, they have been caught on camera abducting teenaged girls off the street, kicking and punching unconscious protesters, and busting out car windows.

being one of the few in its city with food.

Articles: Zero Tolerance, Evil Objects, and the Psychosis of the Left

Articles: Zero Tolerance, Evil Objects, and the Psychosis of the Left: Progressives pride themselves on their highly evolved psyches, their awe-inspiring good intentions and their admirable sense of right and wrong. Indeed, so sure are they that they are right, disagreement can only be an insult. Opposition triggers instant hatred, in a chorus chanted so loudly that nothing said, no evidence presented, will be heard or considered. Indeed, in order to cement a belief, whatever the left decides to believe magically becomes new science, granted an exemption from any sort of scientific process because the leftist has declared that a consensus of leftists makes something scientific. Belief alone is the sole test. This process is, quite literally, detached from reality, as if written by an inebriated Charles Dodgson.

Federal agents raid four Ares Armor gun part stores in San Diego County, confiscating polymer 80 percent lower receivers and customer lists | FOX5 San Diego – San Diego news, weather, traffic, sports from KSWB: “If anybody is a criminal organization that should be investigated, I think they should look in the mirror. We gave them a black eye publicly,” Karras said. “They tried to do an underhanded deal with us. They said, ‘Hey hush, hush. Keep it secret and nobody’s going to know that we took the customer list from you. Nobody’s going to know we took this from you.’”

The investigation has some customers nervous about their right to bear arms.

“I’m on that list, and I’m waiting for the knock on the door to tell me they are here to remove my second amendment rights,” one customer told Fox 5.

AP photographer hits White House: 'Once we lose access, we'll never get it back' | WashingtonExaminer.com

AP photographer hits White House: 'Once we lose access, we'll never get it back' | WashingtonExaminer.com: The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we'll never get it back.”

In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP's White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president's team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image.

At the Newspaper Association of America's mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in at major news events, like the president's recent meeting with the Dalai Lama, it is issuing “virtual press releases” on social media.

China's Housing Problem In One Chart | Zero Hedge: The one problem with every Ponzi scheme is that it must constantly grow, in both demand and supply terms, for the mass delusion to continue. The other problem, of course, is that every Ponzi scheme always comes to an end.... which may have just happened in China where as the chart below shows, as of this moment at least, the supply side to the Chinese housing ponzi (and recall that in China the bubble is not in the stock market like in the US, but in housing) has slammed shut.

THE REAL INTENTIONS OF THE WELFARE STATE | Conservative Teachers of America

THE REAL INTENTIONS OF THE WELFARE STATE | Conservative Teachers of America: Conservatives ought to read the biographies of Frederick Douglass. He wrote three, all of them masterful and articulate to explain, not racism, but the true meaning of freedom. Exemplary is his explanation of the importance of individual self-reliance and self-development, as opposed to the collectivist tendency to rely on others for one’s sustenance, in the case of the slaves, their “masters,” trading in exchange their eternal labors in the chains of a system that denied them the fundamental right to own their bodies and minds. Douglass eloquently describes his path to freedom, which begins when he realizes and develops a deep belief in his own right of self-ownership, exemplified in his teaching himself to read as the door opener to greater self-education, because, as he says, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com: Was it the harsh winter in much of the United States? One problem with that explanation is that the numbers are already seasonally adjusted.

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com: The labor market's strength and economic activity are better measured by the number of total hours worked than by the number of people employed. An employer who replaces 100 40-hour-per-week workers with 120 20-hour-per-week workers is contracting, not expanding operations. The same is true at the national level.

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com: Although it is often overlooked, a key statistic for understanding the labor market is the length of the average workweek. Small changes in the average workweek imply large changes in total hours worked. The average workweek in the U.S. has fallen to 34.2 hours in February from 34.5 hours in September 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That decline, coupled with mediocre job creation, implies that the total hours of employment have decreased over the period.

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com

Edward Lazear: The Hidden Rot in the Jobs Numbers - WSJ.com: Most commentators viewed the February jobs report released on March 7 as good news, indicating that the labor market is on a favorable growth path. A more careful reading shows that employment actually fell—as it has in four out of the past six months and in more than one-third of the months during the past two years.
