    Venezuela has shortages of every commodity except electricity, which is practically free. Hence the rise of bitcoin farms there, for the win-win. Mine bitcoins and pay for commodities in bitcoins, which are more stable than venezuelan money. Corrupt cops monitor electricity usage, storm the farms and either steal the rigs outright, or charge a $1000 "penalty" fee for each computer. This has forced the bitcoin farmers deeper underground, spreading our their computers among several different locations, or mining Ether, which can be more easily disguised as regular home computers. Bitcoin usage is up from 450 in 2014, to 85,000 in 2017.

    Hopefully it's only a matter of time before the evil oppressive regime is taken down.

    American companies should easily be able to take the Venezuelan oil post-Maduro. Bonus.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Trump sold them weapons, but only after they agreed they wouldn't allow Mueller to investigate Manafort's former associates there anymore.

    I'm actually wondering the same thing. The cartoon indicates that the U.S. is the angel of death that visited Ukraine.

    It's some weak-minded nonsense to compare the USA to Venezuela.

    I was talking about them. There's ample evidence that you're not weak-minded.

    I wonder what the purpose was for the Second Amendment, and if that purpose is universal in any way?

    I'm not sure it's the same thing as the second ammendment, but the right to overthrow a corrupt overlord is both sacred and universal, while at the same time nearly always illegal.

    I think the National Guard fills that well regulated provision. Each governor has a national guard force that he/she is the commander-in-chief over. Each of these well regulated militias are a check against a federal army wielded unrighteously.

    I've seen it argued that "well regulated" simply means that the firearm (and the person wielding it) are in proper working order, and that the person knows how to use it. Here's an example: https://www.constitution.org/cons/wellregu.htm
