104. Pardon me for not confirming your prejuduices.
Always happens when I say anything about Venezuala. Since I don't conform, there's always an 'expert' to accuse me of lies, or spounting propaganda, or being a CIA plant.

I provided anecdotes. Personal stories, told to me by people I trust in Venezuala. Others provide news stories, told by people they trust. Of course, I could spend time finding links that contradict the others. I imagine that if I did, people would claim the links were biased and ignore them. So, I shant bother.

I've told my stories, given my warnings.

If I'm a liar, it's because I've believed people I know better than I know you. People living in Caracas; people who grew up in Venezuala. Not people posting on internet boards and playing flamebait games.

No doubt, you'll point out my foul mouth. And yes, I have one. But I respond with anger to people who call me names. So, sir or madam who declines to state,

Never mind. It's not worth it. Why do I bother? Is it because I hear the fear in my inlaws voices? Is it because that I know that the stories coming out of Venezuala from both sides aren't true? Caught between Chavez psuedo leftist on one side, and the CIA backed Oligarcha on the other, where will my family go? Perhaps Canada; it seems the United States doesn't like refugees from the wrong government.
