Yes, over the weekend Venezuelan President and clairvoyant Nicolas Maduro decided that the best way to combat his Nation’s lack of provisions (flour, toilet paper, cooking oil, coffins) is not to release his dead man’s grip on the economy, but to instead shrink the size of the US Embassy and to force all Americans to apply for tourist visas.
Oh, and those tourist visas? Yeah, Maduro expects those to be paid in the US dollar.
Calling the moves necessary to combat Gringo Imperialism, Maduro also decided to ban Florida Senator Marco Rubio from his shores, along with former US Vice President Dick Cheney.
Apparently, even though he’s supposedly orchestrating the coup, Maduro’s decided to give a pass to Vice President Biden.
Senator Rubio, whom has also been banned from traveling to Nicaragua, took Maduro’s decision on the chin, simply saying, “I love the people of Venezuela. I want that country to have freedom. I want it to have human rights and to be banned by a dictator like Nicolas Maduro is, to me, a badge of honor.”
Something to consider before you book your ticket.
