Full Tank of Gas in Venezuela < 1 Gallon of Gas in U.S. - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

Here is an article that should twist your underwear in a knot.

Energy Crisis? Venezuela Gas Is Cheaper Than Water
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsartic ... rss&rpc=22

"Those gringos have everything -- so why does their gas cost so much?" asked Tinoco between chuckles as he navigated a midday traffic jam. "Don't they have oil reserves?"

Excuse me, but isn't "gringo" a pejorative term, that would be censored if it referred to South Americans? Of course that is a rhetorical question, and of course the answer is, "Yes, it would be censored."

From Dictionary.com
gringo
n : a Latin American (disparaging) term for foreigners (especially Americans and Englishmen)

From Answers.com
grin·go (grĭng'gō)
n. Offensive Slang., pl. -gos.
Used as a disparaging term for a foreigner in Latin America, especially an American or English person.

Aren't double standards great when you can get away with it?
