A colleague from work said to me yesterday, that his parents just came back from a 25day vacation in Venezuela and that Venezuelan population doesn't know about killings/deaths that are happening.

Actually his parents where surprised by the numbers that where published on international media.

Totally inside media censorship.

ok. that's control.

Same deck of cards other nations use when the government tries to keep power. They dream up some outside interference story and blame random nations in order to distract the people from their own failings. Maduro has pulled several plays out of Chavez's book.

The political stand of the Venezuelan government is essentially equality for all, without taking into account how those actions affect business, people, jobs etc. Like when the Venezuelan government seized several electronic stores and forced the companies to sell items at or below cost.

If the health system of Venezuela was so damned good, then why did Chavez go to cuba for his treatments?

Chavez, and now his minion successor, have done all they can to control the media while going after any media entity that does not report on what the government wants. (Obama and his administration should watch Venezuela and take notes when it comes to their idiotic idea of placing monitors in US news rooms).

The final nail for the Venezuelan government will come when they run out of people / countries to blame. The protests are a sign of that end.

You would think these dictators would figure out it's just easier to turn the people into sheep. You don't have to control everyone individually, you make the herd follow.

The government of Venezuela has attempted that with various scams, like commandeering stores and forcing the sales of items at cost. Chavez pulled it when he was in power, and now it continues under this president.

In this particular case I think the people of Venezuela might be a bit to independent for the sheeple program to be completely successful.

I'm not familiar with the situation in Ukraine, but if Maduro is trying to censor the press, then he's a terrible person. If you aren't doing anything wrong (left or right), then why censor those who talk about you? If what they're saying about him/this issue is false, then he should have no problem as they wouldn't have the evidence to back up what they're saying.

When this guy took over, my husband said, and I quote "This guy is going to be the devil. He'll make Chavez look like just another pompous prick."

Looks like he kind of nailed that... Man, I feel for Venezuela, this is going to get a whole lot uglier before it gets even a smidgen better for them, Maduro's regime is practically out for blood.

You think Chavez was bad you should see how his grown children are acting. they are refusing to vacate the Presidential Palace, and apparently have been hosting lavish parties for their friends.
