Why do you encourage that kind of shit? Why not just put it down as pure nonsense?

The benefit in doing that would be in discouraging such idiots from proposing nonsense.

If it was a case of a stupid individual there could be merit in trying to teach and convince. When it's just another of Oppo's little people it's damaging to the forum.

Partially because I'm curious if this nonsense has a source or if its just one guys odd notions.

Thanks for your answer. You get my point so I hope you can come to a conclusion soon.

One of the reasons why there's so many persons that haven't been adequately fed is because some farms and ranches are being used for growing marijuana to sell for "recreation" instead of said farms and ranches being used to grow more food for competitive markets.  While I don't oppose marijuana grown for industrial hemp, and I'd like for sales of medicinal marijuana to be lessened when possible, I do believe that people deserve liberty from addictions (such as "recreational" marijuana).
The price of pot is skyrocketing in Venezuela too.
Maybe pot farmers fed it to their goats because they could get more money for food than for recreational drugs?

The point we are trying to make is that the problems in Venezuela can be laid squarely at the feet of their "socially responsible government."

On this one I was able to agree on both points of view. Expressly, that there couldn't be a famine without food involved, as well as your and their position on government.

Don't push it on socially responsible government if you want a conversation with me. That wasn't called for even though it can be a topic elsewhere any time you wish.

It's called having an open mind. Try it sometime.

When Venezuela had a fairly good government that protected property rights and permitted a mostly free economy, they were one of the most prosperous nations in the world.

Their current problems arose directly from a "socially responsible government" that denied economic liberty to Venezuelans.

I know facts like that inflame your brain, but that's your problem.
