Fivedollargold's boss is from Venezuela. Her family there have suffered terribly under the Chavez-Maduro dictatorship. Whatever America can do to support the removal of Maduro is greatly appreciated by the vast majority of Venezuelan people. From a Randian perspective, it is in America's interest to oppose Maduro, who has given a foothold in South America to Iran, Red China, and Russia.

    Saw the young lady from Venezuela on Fox last evening. She told of her life in Venezuela before all this happened. She elaborated on shopping and people eating their pets. Breaks one's heart. Such a beautiful country.

    A few weeks ago a Venezuelan working in a restaurant in Panama told me "I don't know much about politics, but socialism makes it hard to find a job. I'm going back as soon as Maduro is gone." I hear that from commentators, but it was poignant to hear it from someone working in a foreign country because there are no jobs at home because of bad policy.

    In Argentina and a few other countries "sos" means "you are". For a second I read it as "you are Venezuela," then I got it. I don't think Venezuela says "sos" so the double-meaning may not be intentional.

    I used to have many (usually 10 per year) productive Venezuelan students come to my university, vowing never to return. The last two of them graduated in May, one of whom worked for me. We haven't had any new enrollees from Venezuela in over 4 years.
