Socialism Fail: Lights go out in Venezuela again...

This the second major power outage in 4 months. You would think a country with as much oil as Venezuela could keep the electricity on. That isn't true. The government is so incompetent, you can't even buy toilet paper in Venezuela any more. This is what happens when your leader is a former community organizer bus driver. Of course, socialists never accept responsibility for their failures. The blame a Tea Party right-wing plan.
CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's second massive power outage of the year plunged much of the nation into darkness on Monday night, prompting renewed talk of sabotage from President Nicolas Maduro's government and cries of incompetence from its foes.
Power went off in Caracas and other cities around the country soon after 8 p.m. local time (0030 GMT), to the intense annoyance of residents and commuters.
"I feel so frustrated, angry and impotent," said sales adviser Aneudys Acosta, 29, trudging through the rain along a street in the capital after having to leave the disrupted underground transport system.
"I live far away and here I am stuck under the rain. Something's going wrong that they're not sorting out. The government needs a Plan B. This is just not normal."
Monday's outage appeared similar to a massive September 5 blackout that was one of the worst in the South American OPEC member's history.

"I have no doubt that today's electricity sabotage is part of the right-wing's plan," Cabello said on Twitter.
