A pox on both your houses

So the “world’s greatest deliberative body” has passed a sanctions bill against Venezuela for human rights violations during the previous election campaign there?

Really?

Really?

And this is in the lame duck session before the Republicans even take over?

After Ferguson and Staten Island, the Feds decide to act against……Venezuela?

Really?

Then of course there’s President Knuckles’ response: “We don’t accept insolent imperialist sanctions”

Ummm, Knucky? That’s not quite how it works, pumpkin.

How sanctions become law, Knuckles Maduro edition: 1. passes both houses of congress. 2. signed by the president. 3 goes to the intended sanctionee for a referendum.

Since Venezuela needs to sell us their crappy low quality oil more than we need to buy it right now, I’m guessing the sanctions will happen, Knuckles will make some political hay, and everything else will be business as usual.

Glad to see the Feds send such a strong message against state sanctioned violence against unarmed citizens though.

Our government makes me sick.
