You didn’t hear this on Fox News or the Drudge Report, but on October 10 Venezuela seized and nationalized a massive fertilizer plant part-owned by Koch Industries. The media silence is a bit puzzling. You’d think that the seizure of property belonging to America’s second-largest private company, owned by one of the most powerful families in the country and the bankrollers of today’s libertarian/Tea Party revolution—the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch–would be considered newsworthy. But no, even though their Venezuela plant was nationalized a whole three months ago, other than a handful of short business-wire dispatches, this has yet to make the news. Even Koch Industries has been suspiciously silent on the matter.

One reason why the Kochs could be keeping the news under wraps is that the nationalization of the fertilizer plant may appear to be bad news for Charles and David Koch, but here’s the big surprise: the Kochs made hundreds of millions on every end of this deal…and even more surprising, bond markets cheered the nationalization. In other words, the free markets championed by the Kochs gave a big thumbs-down to Kochs’ negative influence on the value of the business, while at the same time, the free-market Kochs earned huge windfalls doing business with socialists. No wonder this story hasn’t made the rounds.

What were true-believer libertarians like the Kochs doing running a fertilizer plant in Venezuela with two state-run companies, anyway? After all, Charles Koch’s own Cato Institute brain trust has been writing for decades that government-owned enterprises are less efficient and productive than private companies. The answer is simple: they were there for the subsidies.

Teabaggers looking for government handouts.

Venezuelan "socialist" handouts.

Teabagger Congress Trying To Eliminate Overtime Pay

It seems like a simple proposition: give employees who work more than 40 hours a week the option of taking paid time off instead of overtime pay.

Republicans in Congress are pushing legislation that would extend that option to the private sector. They say that would bring more flexibility to the workplace and help workers better balance family and career.

The push is part of a broader Republican agenda undertaken by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to expand the party's political appeal to working families.

Republicans and business groups have tried to pass the plan in some form since the 1990s.

Almost as long as their war on the middle class.

Rotten teabaggers.

Part of what Maduro said was right------Obama is the grand chief.

Now if Maduro were any type of a statesman, he would be trying to normalize relations with the US. It would benefit Venezuela and its people. With annual inflation heading toward 30% thanks to a currency devaluation and expanding money supply and periodic shortages of products like medicine and flour, they people need better leadership than what they’ve got. Inflation and stagnant grow won’t get Maduro reelected next election cycle.

What ever that is pookie, it's more than you know. You're the idiot that voted for an empty suit that kept America in hock and debt without even trying to increase jobs.

Special ops halted from responding to Benghazi attacks, U.S. diplomat says

By Ernesto Londoño, Published: May 6

As the weakly protected U.S. diplomatic compound in eastern Libya came under attack the night of Sept. 11, 2012, the deputy head of the embassy in Tripoli 600 miles away sought in vain to get the Pentagon to scramble fighter jets over Benghazi in a show of force that he said might have averted a second attack on a nearby CIA complex.

Hours later, according to excerpts of the account by the U.S. diplomat, Gregory Hicks, American officials in the Libyan capital sought permission to deploy four U.S. Special Operations troops to Benghazi aboard a Libyan military aircraft early the next morning. The troops were told to stand down.

That 'ObamaPhone' call at 3am is going to come back and bite like 'bo'(the WH dog). Even the naming indicates a mental issue.

Even though, you're off-topic spam is noted, I'll respond anyway.

NOT in this case.

The embassy and the consulate should have been closed.

Just as the one in Syria should be closed, if it isn't already.

"American officials in the Libyan capital sought permission to deploy four U.S. Special Operations troops to Benghazi aboard a Libyan military aircraft early the next morning. The troops were told to stand down".

I would have done the same thing.

FOUR?

That's suicide.
