No. I didn't ignore what the farmers said. Their statement is truth.

You are lying. I watched the video. It clearly states the reasons. You are choosing to emphasize one, while denying the other.

That's known as bias.

EU fail




I am not lying, you are. There is no way that food prices are not going to inflate when producers are LOSING MONEY when selling products DUE TO GOVERNMENT PRICE CONTROLS...


In fact, what happens is that either food is exported, or it will be sold in the black market... Then the socialist/communist government will use this to impose more sanctions, and even nationalize more industries meanwhile rationing even MORE food and other products...

You are not going to be able to lie to me, I have LIVED THIS, YOU HAVEN'T...

No. You said that at the 1:40 mark the lady mentioned the reason, and it was price control.

This is a lie anyone who cares to watch the video can verify.

She states that it is due to inflation AND price control.

You are losing influence on this site because people are continuing to call out your lies.

Please be more honest.

Thanks.

Oh wow, and AGAIN people like you proclaim to "talk for everyone else"...
And then you have the galls to claim I am lying....


Amazing... Did you not hear that for example milk producers ARE LOSING 12-13 cents every time they sell something due to government controlled prices? How is that not going to cause food shortages when producers are losing money by GOVERNMENT PRICE CONTROLS? Or are your socialist/communist ear plugs in place and you become oblivious to the truth when you can't stand it?...

Oh and btw, you should be the one learning how to be honest and stop CLAIMING you are a mouthpiece for everyone

This link destroys your mindless barking:

Venezuela Inflation Highest Among Top Emerging Economies

It's from 2010.

I'll make it simple so you can keep up.

2013-2010 = 3. 3 is greater than 1.

Guess what that means? It means the inflation had been an issue for a VERY long time, and it finally reached a point that something had to be done.

The policy failed. I don't disagree with that. What I'm doing is pointing out your agenda. You have a huge bias which must be called out.

western Europe is 'socialist' but I don't see any hysterics about food shortages, although they don't seem to have the butter, beef mountains they used to have, or the wine lakes, there again, I'm typing about 30 to 40 years ago

I love it. Isn't it ironic how the supporters of socialism/communism and Chavez's regime claimed things will get better because of him and things are only GETTING WORSE?... Yet they want to claim "it is because of capitalism"...


It's not like Chavez has nationalized/taken over certian industries, and has made it harder to make business in Venezuela... But yet again, instead of going directly to the source, the brainwashed claim that because the mouthpieces of the regime claim one thing, that must be the reason, and it is not because of their other messiah "Chavez" and his socialist/communist regime...


Oh and btw, in case you haven't heard Chavez's government stifles free speech, and like Cuba, much of what "government run institutions" have to say, it is all lies, and claims from DICTATORSHIPS... After all Chavez himself has been stating for years that Venezuelans should learn from Cuba, and that castro has been his mentor. what else can you expect from Chavez when he leaned from another DICTATOR?

But of course, "unityemissions" will try to defend his comrade Chavez and his socialist/communist ideology...


"unityemissions" before you go claiming others should be honest, you yourself should learn the meaning of honesty, because you have not one inkling of it

So you continue to lie? I'm not supporting any economic or political ideology. Just pointing out that you have bias, and an agenda.

Pretty sure the truth speaks for itself. I'll leave it up to other members to decide for their selves.

Western Europe is socialist?.... Would you care to mention what country, or countries you are talking about?...

Please, go ahead, I want to read this...

Really, care to tell us what "bias and agenda" I have?...

If I have any "bias and agenda" it is the truth, unlike yours... I am sure those not blinded by socialism/communism will see the truth. Meanwhile those who proclaim socialism/communism is the best thing in the world will continue to defend leftwing dictatorships until they can't defend them anymore, and then will start claiming "this is not socialism/communism"...

Socialism exists because capitalists with heart are harder and harder to find. I personally believe in capitalism, but not the kind where the big guy squashes the next guy coming along. That's when the problems begin to exist. when the capitalist doesn't understand when he has enough.
I don't believe that lazy people deserve my money, but I do believe that when someone hits a bad patch, we need to be there for them.
When a nation sees socialism as a right, it is doomed as the capitalists will leave. When a capitalist nation sees only the almighty buck, it's people will sooner or later starve as a few capital empires control everything and refuse to understand that their empires only exist because of those in the streets.

Balance = survival
