Fast and furious 

The lies just keep on pouring in. Taking their lead from Giusti now Veneconomy, which claims to be a serious journal and pays for some opposition bloggers international jaunts, claims PDVSA is going down the tubes. They claim that international observers say that production is 600,000 to 700,000 below their quota. Of course, if they actually read PDVSA's audited financial statements they would know this is complete non-sense. And that shouldn't be beyond the capabilities of such economic gurus as Veneconomy. But they instead prefer to keep lying to whoever it is that still believes in them.

And that is not the end of the propoganda. For example, the article claims the PDVSA workers who were fired were fired for political reasons!! Well, maybe if you don't go on an illegal strike for the political reason of overthrowing the government you won't get fired! How's that for an idea.

Barely more than a week ago the opposition suffered yet another significant reversal. In what according to international observers were transparent elections they were wiped out of the National Assembly. So do we see any introspection and change in course? Nope. I'm just seeing the same strategy, the same denial, and the same tired lies. Venezuela needs a serious political opposition. But it doesn't look as though they'll be getting it anytime soon.
