I am aware that my foretelling of Venezuela's demise has been long forthcoming. I am frankly amazed they have lasted this long. At this point now they are running on fumes and I can't understand how they can function at all anymore.

I saw a poll that 15% of people now regularly eat garbage as part of their diet, but that was in 2016. I can't imagine it's anything but worse now. Inflation was a few hundred % a year but now might be as high as 400,000%. Money is basically worthless and defunct. Banks have a limit of 10,000 bolivars a day for withdrawal - this is worth 6 cents.

I guess I thought people wouldn't wait until they reached Biafra-like conditions before a violent overthrow of their government. Looks like that's what they are waiting for. And violent it will be, I imagine. It would be like me losing 2 pounds a week - obviously I could only do this for so long before I would die. They can't have much left in the tank. It's possible Russia will prop them up some but that'll just delay the inevitable.

And in Mr. Torres defense, I've been around some five year olds. If Pint sized tennis rackets are outlawed, only toddlers will have pint sized tennis rackets.

@VA,

Not disagreeing with your assessment, but you have been predicting the imminent demise of Maduro (and possibly even Chavez?) for a very long time. Interestingly the Rambo former policeman action hero dude just went down to the government last week without any popular support rallying to him despite social media pleas up until the bitter end. Not sure what it will take for the supporters of this particularly inept Marxist Leninist clown to change their minds but there still seem to be a lot of them and they seem to have an extremely high pain threshold.

They don't have birth control. They don't have antibiotics. They don't have cancer drugs. They don't have parts for service of their diagnostic equipment. They don't have basic medical supplies. They are screwed.

Their country is disintegrating. Widespread hunger is setting in and hundreds of thousands of refugees have spilled into Colombia, who is asking for help in caring for them all.

The global crisis of 2018. It's finally happening.

Of course they blame the United States. Obviously. Recent (Venezuelan government-controlled) news stories blame the US and Israel for all the worlds problems and refer to them as "the enemy". They truly don't understand how they did this to themselves.

A news/WTF combo...

With an estimated five percent of needed medicines available, Venezuela on Friday launched a health plan that relies on herbs and natural remedies.

The "100 percent Natural Health Plan" seeks the "rescue of historic and patrimonial health, knowledge of the old ladies," President Nicolas Maduro said at the presidential palace.

Citizens have demonstrated against shortages of essential goods including medicines. The country's medical union estimated Venezuela's pharmaceutical shortage at 95 percent.

"I am curing a terrible flu that hit me at the beginning of the year with chamomile, aloe, lemon and a little honey," Maduro said.

"This comes from the ancestral knowledge of my family."

I think it's because I'm a swingle female (and yes, admittedly cuckoo at times)

Taisei Corp., a construction company based in Tokyo, announced in December that it will use autonomous drones, taking flight in April, to combat karoshi, or overwork death, reported The Independent.

The drones will hover over desks of employees who have stayed at work too long and blast "Auld Lang Syne," a tune commonly used in Japanese shops getting ready to close. A company statement said: "It will encourage employees who are present at the drone patrol time to leave, not only to promote employee health but also to conduct internal security management."
