… The Sad Think with Venezuela [#oil exploration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 18th,2016

.. Venezuela is an oil – rich nation , that is no doubt . However , its legacy is being squandered by the Chavistas and now Nicolas Maduro and his gang , with an assist from Cuba …

.. it has an even richer legacy , one that is right now largely going unexplored . It is the Orinoco Basin . Outside of the United States , the Orinoco Basin is one of the largest unexplored areas of shale oil on the planet . Most estimates put the holdings there at about 150 billion barrels to 175 billion barrels of oil . Yes , they are that large . But , right now , nothing . Courtesy of the Chavistas …

.. courtesy of the economic insanity that is Venezuela and other countries like it [such as Ecuador] , that are will continue to go largely unexplored .

.. It seems that Evo Morales needs to learn a sense of diplomatic and religious tact ..

.. right now His Holiness is on a 3 – nation tour of Latin American [Argentina , Bolivia , and Ecuador] . Well , it seems that 9 years in office for Mr. Morales has not taught him all that much . In particular with dealings with the Roman Catholic Church ..

.. you give gifts of some moral or religious value to the Pope . But a so – called ” Communist Crucifix ” ? No , no , absolutely not …

— [update]  — I goofed . His Holiness did go to  Ecuador and Bolivia . However , I made a  big  mistake . The third country that the  Holy Father visited was Paraguay , not Argentina …..
