Feel the Bern: Three dead in Venezuela cash unrest

Maria Isabel SANCHEZ

A weekend of looting and clashes left at least three people dead in Venezuela, authorities said, as anger roiled over a chaotic currency reform that left many without cash.  A man, a woman and an adolescent boy were shot dead when violence erupted on Saturday in the town of La Paragua, in the southern state of Bolivar, the attorney general's office confirmed on Monday.
 
The opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD), which accuses President Nicolas Maduro of driving oil-rich Venezuela to the brink of economic collapse, contested the death toll. It said five people had died in the state.  Unrest broke out Friday after Maduro ordered the 100-bolivar bill removed from circulation before the 500-bolivar bills intended to replace it had arrived.......
Maduro said the planes bringing it to Venezuela from abroad were delayed in a US-backed conspiracy.  The leftist firebrand called the alleged plot US President Barack Obama's "death throes."............To Read More.......
 
My Take - Leftists constantly make totally irrational claims to blame others for their failures and the failure that follows socialism.  That's history!  And that history is incontestable.  Obama blamed Bush, Hillary blames Putin and Comey, and now Maduro blames Obama.  Leftists hate everyone, including other leftists.  But they offer lots of free stuff, at least until they've run out of other people's money, then they print money that has no value.  It's never their fault when it all comes tumbling down. 
 
Before the end of 2017 Maduro and his crowd of thieves and thugs will be out of power and fleeing to - well, who knows where - with all the money they've stolen.  Venezuela will be impoverished beyond belief for decades because their oil won't be able to be sold to anyone because it's so contaminated.  All that money wasted by the Bernies of the world.  The day will come when the people of Venezuela will beg the United States to help them from starving to death.
