La imposibilidad del cálculo político en Venezuela – Michael Penfold

EL CAMBIO HACIA LA DEMOCRACIA ES INDETENIBLE PORQUE EL COMUNISMO MUEVE SUS PIEZAS.

Jokeslab

Venezuela entró en una nueva fase de un conflicto político que va a ser largo, complejo y probablemente terminará con resultados que nadie pueda anticipar.

Vivimos una verdadera tragedia nacional.

Movie Review: SPOTLIGHT (USA 2015) ****

Despite the controversial topic, the film manages to get its message across without resorting to any unnecessary disturbing scenes of child molestation.
