    Venezuela's crime problem fixes itself...

    Crooks can't buy bullets and nobody has enough of anything to bother robbing them.

    It's the socialist dream come true! Gun control and universal impoverishment!

    I have a good friend from there. He used to have a great job with one of their largest companies (oil). He said it was a beautiful country with good people. He still has family and friends that are in terrible despair. It's sick what has happened, but a testament to the nature of man.

    I was in Venezuela for 2 years just before Chavez came to power. I left just after he took office. It may be a total outhouse now but it was no capitalist Shangri-La back then either. It was a very dangerous place. Crime and kidnapping were rampant. The Venezuelan Mafia was all powerful and controlled many of the private businesses and distributorships. The Government and all it's agencies were totally corrupt. The police were probably the biggest criminal gang around. The National Guard, La Guardia, were a law unto themselves, cross them and you could and would disappear. The infrastructure for the most part, especially outside of Caracas, was in absolute disrepair. You've never seen roads so bad with potholes that could swallow a truck.

    The wealth disparity was incredible. There were very, very wealthy people, most of whom had their own private armies for protection, and there were the peons who had nothing, lived in squalor, and who, in total frustration, elected Chavez who promised them anything and everything. Sound familiar.

    It was such a pity. It is a beautiful country with fun loving people who know how to party, just don't ask them to work, and some of the most beautiful girls in the world. Going to any of the local beaches or hotel swimming pools was an eyeopener.

    All they had was oil. It's difficult to see how it could have got much worse but it seems as if they achieved it.
