Meanwhile, in Venezuela

Postby SHMIV » Thu, 20 Apr 2017 04:06:46

We warn of the perils of disarmament. Venezuela is experiencing the consequences.

Of course, the opposition, over there, could always band together, pretend support, join the militia, gain arms and training, then revolt.

Bad thing is, they are getting precisely what they voted for.

Then there is this, http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gm-lea ... 2017-04-20

I suspect Venezuela is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.

GM didn't realize this possibility going in? If not, they are really too stupid to be successful in business. How did Venezuela get into the oil business? They allowed oil companies to find and drill, then nationalized oil production.

Ahh, yes. More consequences of what the left is demanding for us.

Big government is bad government.

Not really.. people voted Trump to drain the swamp, but it looks like he is drowning in the swamp.
Like one of my country ex-residents, at the end of his only mandate: "I was defeated by the system".

I would hope that someone at GM realized the possibility and ran the numbers on how fast the ROI would be vs the likelihood it was seized.

Jake, one might hope that would be the case, but even an iron-clad agreement in an unstable region makes bean counters qualify their projections.
