VHeadline commentarist Arthur Shaw writes: Now, here comes the Japanese, gloating over their second consecutive victory in World Baseball Classic, with $500 million to invest in Venezuela.
But a bunch of bizarre Venezuelan counter-revolutionaries who are abjectly pro-imperialists and laissez faire constantly complain "Oh me! on mine! There is no direct foreign investment in Venezuela," as the Revolution matures and grows stronger.
What these babbling Venezuelan bourgeois are talking about is US imperialist investment. The reactionary Venezuelan bourgeois dreams only about investment from US imperialist con-men like R. Allen Stanford who took the Venezuelan capitalists for about $3 billion in a brilliant certificate-of-deposit Ponzi scheme or Bernard Madoff -- another US thief or "investor" -- who duped the Venezuelan bourgeois out of a bundle or, above all, the Wall Street criminals who control the financial sector of the US bourgeoisie, who took the Venezuelan bourgeoisie for about $20 billion in mortgage-backed-bond Ponzi scheme.
Mostly, the $20 billion the Venezuelan rich lost were proceeds for drug dealing, money laundering, and human trafficking.
Then the bourgeois US regime in Washington last week seizes $250 million in the Bank of America accounts a black market currency dealing and money laundering operation that catered to Venezuelan rich. The seized $250 million represents a good part of the residue of the depleted fortunes of the Venezuelan rich after being looted by consecutive US imperialist frauds.
If you asked the once-rich Venezuelan bourgeois how he feels after being looted repeatedly by his beloved US imperialist idols, Venezuelan bourgeois replies "My close and dear friends, the US imperialists, are distressed at the moment ... and, anything that I can do or give to help them out of their financial distress, I shall do and give and I shall do it and give it gladly for my wonderful and charming con-men from up North."
Love blinds the rich of Venezuela to the moral or, more correctly, the criminal make-up of the United States of America.
So, the working class of Venezuela as well as the middle class, if it knows what's good for it, must be wary of all counsel that comes from this servile slime that populates the Venezuelan bourgeoisie.
