    Yeah but Salt Bae is just a meme, just a guy who cuts meat. But yeah he's definitely an useful idiot. He also loves Erdogan, and he probably loves Maduro because Erdogan and him are friends

    Dunno if that is a good thing. But i guess atleast that means a little more for the people in the end.
    That is debatible. It is not like the shambles that we call opposition is in any shape to take control, but any more stability that the goverment gets, is who knows how many more years of hard work that will be needed to pull Venezuela out of the damn hole that we keep digging in, and there is no bottom.

    This is the last year that any semblance of non bolivarian education is going to be thaught.
    There is a lot of studies done about the effects on hunger on developing childs.
    The cracks for next chavez have already been formed, the ones with money or other nationalities are already out, so when we come back and start rebuilding there will be resentment and envy, even if we manage to wash away the one that is already there
    Malaria is back, and the other mosquito disease are out of control.
    The oil production keeps faling, and those world famous oil reserves? That's the crappy, hard to work, shitty stuff that needs a ton of procesing to be useful, and I bet it's been sold to the chinesse by now.
    The armed militia
    The rampant crime
    The colapse of infrastructure that left the hottest city on the country in a blackout for 2 months
    The exodus
    The buyout of 80% of the caribean islands, who everyone except like Jamaica and Dominican Republic deserve a big fuck you (except Haiti, as they have suffered enough)

    That money that they got from china? Any hope that it will trickle down to the people that need it is delutional, as you see, there aren't any elections this year, but there is a lot of international pressure to disperse right now.

    Keep an eye for Brazil's elections tho.

    Only 3 to 10? I thought it would be longer.

    They merged all three counts into one for the sentencing, so that might be why.

    Can't she give them like... an one?

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    While I don't agree with the firing, the logic of the teacher is of a competent one, not a good one. If this was a labor of passion, then she would have found out and stated why they didn't turn the homework in.

    I dunno about partial credit, but couldn't she give them an extra credit assignment to try or something?

    It seems like she was making a stand out of discipline, granted that the average classroom might need that.

    Sentencing guidelines are two to three years per count with an option of subtracting or adding twelve months depending on the circumstances. As is, even with the counts being merged, the judge still basically hit him with the total average sentence for each of all three counts plus the extra time for his complete lack of remorse.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    I am conflicted right now:
    https://www.caracaschronicles.com/20...eral-assembly/

    On one hand, the fattest idiot called the mustachoid idiot and his cuban benefactors out, but then proceded to make an ass out of himself, and then proceded to say what is obvious, the bolivarian revolution is only alive because they dismantled the opposition and that the ones actuallly defending the goverment aren't these soldiers:



    But the chinesse, cuban and russia operatives infiltrated in every level of the army, and the fact that they hold ~30million people hostage.

    And then Argentina, Brazil and Colombia with their not that popular presidents expending political capital on us (thank you!, I hope we can repay them, and collect on Bolivia, Cuba and the caribean islands while we are on it, sooner than later)

    A question for the non-American posters here: Is political campaigning as nasty and under-handed as it is here? And as relentless on commercials?

    The goverment isn't using it's power to inhabilitate the opposition, or to cherrypick the one party that can run. Or to abuse the full power of the country's economy to use it for campaing, or to blackmail people into obedience or else they lose their one access to medicine/job/food, specially old people.

    Or like Brazil where someone shoot a candidate 2 months ago.

    Sure, they don't insult eachother in tv, if that's what you are asking.

    Political campaigns all over the world are all at some extent getting influenced by how it's done in the US.
    In France, it was at first with the introduction of tv. Jean Lecaunet, a nobody, ended up with 15% of the votes (1965 presidential elections) pretty much only because he's the only candidate that had used tv to campaign

    Also, obviously Sarkozy who worships Amerikkkka has introduced videoclips for political campaigns

    NO ONE was doing this crazy insane thing before. And now... well, lol, now everyone's doing it

    wow fu-u-u-u-u-uu-ckkk. I hate the French now
    Also, since Sarkozy, the French have gone way too much american-friendly. Before, everyone despised the US, and now (among politicians) there is only Mélenchon that makes it sound like anti-americanism was some tankie thing... this is the end my friend, I'm telling ya. The next president is gonna be a fascist and no one's gonna be able to stop a nuclear power

    Times like this I'm glad I'm half Chinese, because you can feel they will be our conquerors.

    Or as Napoleon said: "China is a sleeping giant. Let her sleep, for when she wakes she shall shake the world."

    If China decides to take us over, maybe they'll be more lenient on me and my family since we're Chinese.
