Bernie Sanders said that he liked bread lines.
When asked about the food shortages provoked by the Sandinistas’ voodoo economic policy, Sanders claimed that bread lines were a sign of a healthy economy, suggesting an equitable distribution of wealth: “It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”
Sadly in Socialist Venezuela, the citizens don't seem to appreciate how good bread lines are. Not to mention fingerprint scanners for buying milk.
Venezuelan cities cleaned up from a night of looting and fiery protests Wednesday as government offices closed their doors for the rest of the week in the face of a worsening energy crisis that is causing daily blackouts.
The socialist administration began imposing a four-hour daily blackout around the country this week to save electricity. Then, Maduro announced that millions of officials will now work only Mondays and Tuesdays, taking the rest of the week off in a bid to save electricity.
Angry residents in darkened towns around the country took to the streets Tuesday night, setting up flaming barricades and raiding shops for bread and other scarce food.
“The crazy right wing doesn’t understand that in hard times, a family has to band together,” he said. “They’re trying to create a violent situation.”
Apparently two-thirds of Venezuelans are now crazy right-wingers.
