Damn straight, they got so fat and ugly I had to decommission my Facebook account!


I think the site died along with Cayo's irrational promotion of Venezeula and its utopian socialist society. Ask Cayo how that is going these days, but he's probably out schlepping for some stupid candidate like most the leftist Democrats are these days.

I think the site died along with Cayo's irrational promotion of Venezuela and their perfectly working socialist society. Ask Cayo how that is going these days, but he's probably out schlepping for some stupid candidate like most the leftist Democrats are these days.

Hi,


I might have missed it, but I would have thought that by now someone from "management" would have chimed in with some helpful, encouraging explanatory information.


There may be a message there all on its own...


FWIW.

Well the site has certainly gotten tamer than back in the days of Chunderboy, but after 20 odd years boating, I just yesterday found an old thread about how to shorten cataract oar shafts (thanks avatard!). Damn. I thought it was just me had gotten older and more boring, not Mountainbuzz too.

Not much time to argue ,at the moment.Let's just apply your 4th grade reasoning ability to other countries:how are things going in capitalist Honduras,Guatemala,Haiti,and El Salvador.And those govs were propped up by,not undermined by ,the US ( in blatant collusion with the opposition and Columbia).Another idiotic bullet point being bandied about,mostly by righties but the Dems aren't much better on this issue,is the rhetoric about Venezuela having been a wealthy oil state before Chavez.Yeah ,they should have been,but the right wing oligarchy that ran the country for most of it's history did little for the common person ,invested little of the proceeds domestically,and racked up massive debt.Then they succumbed to neo-liberal dictates to privatize,deregulate,and give tax cuts to the wealthy and foreign investors ,while cutting holes in the meager safety net and putting austerity measures on the poor.That is what brought Chavez to power in the first place.

Contrary to right wing nonsense ,the majority of the economy is not even under Maduro's control.2/3 of it is still in private hands,including food production and distribution until the opposition started using food shortages they created against Maduro ,in the run up to the elections a couple of years ago.The proof was that the stores were miraculously full soon after and the expiration dates on the products indicated they'd been shelved.Maduro then came up with his own failed food program.His handling of inflation made things worse.His approval rating was down to 17%.It is time for him to go.But we have no right to install Guiado as our puppet.His party only holds something like 14 seats in the Assembly.The right's economic plan was rejected by 61% of the people not long ago and overwhelmingly in multiple elections under Chavez.

Unfortunately,there are not many good guys to support there now.But our excessive meddling,lying,undermining,and outright interventionist imperialism,absolutely does not deserve to be rewarded in any way.I hope the international community intervenes and has early elections with neither Maduro or Guaido on the ballot. Maduro can go into exile somewhere.

No one ever claimed anything Utopian or pure Marxist style socialism,they attempted to emulate Norwegian style use of oil revenues.But as Greg Palast once put it, " it just drives Washington crazy when brown people demand Scandanavian priveleges" and our knee-jerk reaction being something like Pavlov's dogs salivating every time they try to.

Oops! Doh! ,on calling out 4th grade reasoning with 2nd grade punctuation errors....my bad...How are things going in capitalist Guat.,Hond.,ES,and Haiti ? It was after the Nuggets game .I'd had a few.I would have liked to have added that Elliot Abrams ,Trump's point man on Vz, once appeared on Nightline,or a similar program,saying that people critical of Reagan era policies in Guatemala,like funding ,arming,and training the leadership,of right wing death squads who engaged in a scorched earth policy-literally burning and murdering 626 whole villages - were communist sympathizers.We've seen this movie before.

I'm not "irrationally promoting Venezuela".I am calling BS on the version of reality we are being fed.

Now it's the Buzz we used to know and love -- irreverent, irrelevant, and you know, sometimes off kilter.
