Chavez holds an auction for foreing investment in his massive natural gas fields.
Despite the obvious demand for the product, NOBODY bids on it. The story is ignored by he American press in general, not a single comment to be seen despite the clear implications. Later, Chavez decides to Nationalize (that’s government speak for steal without penalty) a foreign grocery chain for daring to adjust it’s prices to account for the devaluation of the country’s currency. Again a story not seen in the American press, I have to read about it from the BBC. It seems that nobody is willing to put the dot’s on paper, much less try and connect them in any way.
What? Do I need to say more?
Ok, here’s the title:
“Preserving Cognitive Dissonence In An Age of Unreasonable Clarity”
Now send me some money so I can get started writing it.
As India water and power dry up, the people revolt
Hundreds of times a week across the nation, frustrated residents block roads and demand resources. But there’s simply not enough to go around.
Amazing, they demanded resources be provided to them, but got nothing. I wonder if anybody here with the “I demand it” mentality will get the lesson
These are some of my thoughts and opinions. Most are original, some may not be. They are here because I felt like writing them up. Comments are welcome.
