    Yeah, and I said that was asinine.

    Now you think that you somehow clarified yourself? You just repeated what I called silly and ridiculous. So...thanks? It's silly and ridiculous, still.

    Thousands of 'iron horses' swarm streets in Caracas to vow support for Venezuela's Maduro - YouTube

    Thousands of motorcyclists who support the government of Nicolas Maduro drove through the streets of Caracas on Monday (February 24) while anti-government demonstrators put up barricades and set fire to trash in other parts of the city.

    As the death toll from the recent wave of violence rose to 13, the motorbike riders vowed support for Maduro.

    "What comrade Nicolas Maduro can count on is that the "iron horses" (the motorcyclists) are demonstrating civic behaviour, peace, tolerance and it is done within a legal context, within the constitution and within the law," said Ricardo Vargas, a spokesman for the bikers.

    Some have blamed violent acts on the motorcyclists, but the protesters said they were for peace.

    It'd take a thousand monkeys a thousand years to come up with a page that special.

    What did I misrepresent, exactly? Be specific. Try to stay focused, here. Like walk me through this, logically, please.

    I can remember a time when we were close to that. I use to pull into a full service gas station, they would check the air in your tires, wash your windows, check you oil, pump your gas while you told the attendant you wanted a dollars worth. Gas was 19 cents a gallon, I can remember when they had gas wars and the price would drop to 11 or 12 cents. You also got free maps at any gas station.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Are you still defending this armpit of a country? Jeez only an extremist like yourself could try so hard to pass a laughable failure like Venezuela as a success story.

    People? Ha. Toppling foreign governments is not secret US business. Venezuela booted us over it. Only if US interests aren't served by it would there not be involvement.
