MEXICO RISING : Mexico’s middle class Too bourgeois to bus tables ...

Reiteró que mientras el Gobierno central se empeña en decir que en Venezuela hay patria, el pueblo no tiene calidad de vida. 




“Los enchufados dicen que no importa si no tienen empleo, comida, papel higiénico, si la nevera se daña porque se va la luz o si el transporte público no funciona, porque lo que realmente importa es que tenemos patria. Hay…
