Now under Maduro we have a new prohibition, importing anything that protects against riot police such as gas masks, bullet proof vests, metal balls and marbles (could be used as projectiles), knives, sports padding gear, helmets, etc
But it goes even further: Banned first aid stuff:
Antacids, gauze, cream to treat burns, bandages, eye drops, bicarbonate, etc.

Another worker’s paradise courtesy of socialism.
Please, all, pray for Venezuela.
If first aid supplies are banned then we need to send guns.
Why? Isn’t life good in Venezuela? Aren’t the people content with their lot?
Even a retarded bus driver can handle ANYTHING the opposition throws at him.
He has beaten the Venezuelan Congress, Supreme Court , and Press, and the rabble don’t even have toilet paper!
Trump is doing something wrong here.
How can you ban medical supplies? This is a crime against humanity.
Are they going to scour every junkyard and auto repair facility for ball bearings?? All the "metal balls" I ever had came from those, not bought. Marxists are SO stupid.
What a Larf! They can’t Pay for imports!
People been melting down lead tire weights for as long as there have been tire weights.

Maduro will ban the import of food one day.
Or, the bolivar won’t buy squat. Same same.
Such items were once prohibited from entering the Warsaw ghetto.
SOCIALISM BAYBEE !!
Before people believe reports of utter horror in Venezuela and how life can’t live there, check their population growth.
Truth be known, just about all of this is Rosneft and Goldman Sachs have funded a refinery in Venezuela that will process their Orinoco heavy oil. This means they won’t need Gulf of Mexico refineries anymore, who will lose that business.
THAT is what all the propaganda is about.
Toilet paper since it’s what they pay the troops there for meritorious service.
I’m sure the MSM will break from the “Trump is Hitler” narrative to report this, right?
The MSM has actually done a reasonably good job of reporting on Venezuela. I’ve seen a lot of news reports which seem to be relatively unbiased and don’t spin the facts in favor of the Maduro regime.
If the downward spiral toward a communist dictatorship continues in Venezuela, the South American democracies and the US will have some tough decisions to make. If conditions get extremely tough in Venezuela, even worse than today, we’ll begin to see refugees leaving and crossing the border into neighboring countries. At that point, the US would have to help pay for basic support for the refugees, just to stabilize the western hemisphere and help our friends in South America.
If Venezuela turns into complete chaos and a de facto civil war, then the US and the South American democracies might have to organize a combined military force to surround Venezuela on all sides, let all the refugees and political dissidents out of the country, and then blockade the country and take it back one mile at a time. If they cut off the food supplies, it wouldn’t take very long until the Maduro regime and the Venezuelan military surrender. While the blockade is in place, of course, the combined military force would provide security for all refugees fleeing to get food and essential supplies in neighboring countries. I have a hunch that this blockade option is being considered already as a worst-case contingency plan. This is all my own thinking and I have no inside sources in Washington. Let’s hope it never gets that bad in Venezuela.
