CNN just claimed "Chaos in Venezuela"...care to elaborate? Yes, yes, I imagine it an exaggerated response but...well...still curious.

not entirely certain what the chaos might have referred to.
there are marches everyday, but to describe it as chaos seems a bit sensationalist (and not entirely surprising). Things do look to be escalating, however, and as I write this, there might be a clash going on between students (opposition) and the police. I don´t have access to a television at the moment, so i can´t tell you more as of yet, but will post more soon.

hi cletus, hope you´re well. welcome.
