Underpinning the nuts and bolts of something that clearly makes no sense, trying to weed out logic and reason with cooked noodle tweezers, and a noggin’ high on primo peyote. Sadly, despite the free-flowing thoughts sizzling on the sidewalk, this is not a case of fantasy supplanting reality but of a government majoring in applied hubris and a populace working on semantics, trying to scoop-out form in a non-euclidean landscape and floundering helplessly in a sea of sheer insanity. Standing its ground, like a diseased archaic remnant of the inbreed societal and political makeup of a pre-industrial Era, Venezuela chews […]

Please note that this is not an endorsement of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or of any candidate, but rather an opinion piece on how a nation can be hypnotized by constant media attention, fear of ‘the other guy’, short attention spans, and even shorter memories.

The setting, a cross between a gothic Byronesque romance and a cheap Ron Jeremy porn production.
