#1 Asylum request: Venezuela

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...02-12-00-02-17
Venezuela now leads US asylum requests as crisis deepens

This is what I'm talking about. We told you that it wouldn't work. We told you that this leads to a path of ruin. You told us to eff off. Now you think it's our problem?

You broke it, you bought it. Peace.

What truly irks me is that people run their place into the ground, expect us to help them, then they vote for the same Crap that ran their place into the ground here.

This also applies to people that flee high tax states

Aren't you one of those conservatives that had no problem with Trump continuing to write-off millions each year in taxes from failed business ventures because he should try and pay the least tax possible.

Jesus christ you're a special kind of stupid. There is nothing wrong with writing off taxes, he had to ACTUALLY LOSE THE MONEY for that to be possible. It's not like he's getting a refund that he didn't deserve like the poors.

Nothing wrong with taking advantage of the tax code legally. We all try to do it.

Exactly. AofG is getting his knicks in a twist when people he doesn't like take advantage. If they are doing nothing illegal, what is the issue. Except his faux outrage, of course.

wtf are you talking about? I'm referring to people that vote for big government in places like NY, then leave because of the high taxes. They then move somewhere that isn't fvked, like North Carolina, and then vote for the same crap that ruined NY.

Has nothing to do with dodging taxes you pickle pusher

Some people, usually poor people from third world countries. European immigrants generally don't want to turn the US back into their homeland, I know I sure as sh!t dont.

Well there are two classes of people in VZ: Chavistas and capitalists.

I would bet most of the asylum seekers are capitalists. At least the Venezuelan that I know got asylum because her family are capitalists.

They were threatened with death if they stayed.

Local gangs there surrounded the landfills, and charge a cover to let people dig through it. Socialism is awesome.

I think so.

When I was there I saw seas of "red shirts" and I was warned not to tell them I was American.

Gasoline was $.12 per gal.

What's the land speed record for socialism ruining a one-thriving country?

http://freebeacon.com/issues/sociali...civilian-guns/
Socialist Venezuelan Leader Steps Up Arming of Supporters After Outlawing, Confiscating Civilian Guns
Maduro plans to arm 400,000 supporters amid protests and unrest

Wow, if only some gun rights advocates could have predicted something like this
