No, I am not promoting a USA military takeover of our Western hemisphere neighbor, Venezuela.
But I am disgusted by the actions, or should I say, inactions of our nation, with our good neighbor to the South.
I am baffled by the silence of the lambs in the USA.
It has deafened me!
As Venezuela sinks and rots, unarmed and helpless under the tyrannical fist of Hugo Chaves and Nicolas Maduro, our media is obsessed rather with the 500 theories surrounding the Malaysian flight, so many miles further away. Why?
Not a minute has been dedicated to the plight of Venezuela while hours of coverage are accumulated upon the missing flight.
Shame on them!
Our politicians, for the exception of Ileana Ros and Marco Rubio, are too busy with their Pinocchioisms, political game playing, and mega vacations!
Shame on them!
Has Maduro silenced us with cheap gas, or it is that our government is too socialist and secretly backs up this rule of despotism?
Has our media been ordered to stay silent?
I am reminded of the words of our Savior
Matt 22:39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
Luke 6:31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
In other words, “what comes around, goes around!”
Let’s pray that we are not in real need one day, just like Venezuela, and she recalls our selfish ditherings and chooses to reciprocate and not help us.
Mournfully we’ll gaze up to Joe Cocker, sobbing,
“Oh, I get by with a little help from my Venezuelan friends.”
