My god, what is it with these leftest socialist governments that they will double down on stupid and let their populations starve instead of admitting their policies are idiotic and revert their dumb-ass laws? Appears the next step is to force people to work on State-run farms (slavery). Yes, the Socialists are fine with slavery now.

My God, the stupid hurts! Please pray for the "people" of Venezuela.

A food shortage plaguing Venezuela right now has thrown citizens into a frenzy in search for sustenance and they have resorted to breaking into zoos to butcher and eat the animals.

Last week, groups of intruders broke into Caricuao Zoo in Caracas, Venezuela, pulled a rare black stallion from its cage, and slaughtered him there on the spot. They left behind only his head and ribs, which zookeepers found in the morning when they entered to care for the lone horse.

Earlier this month, Vietnamese pigs and sheep that called the zoo their home were stolen by citizens for food as well.

I doubt that those in government are starving. Why would they care about anyone else?

I'm surprised no one has posted this..

Venezuela is getting ready to impose forced farm labor for its citizens for 60-day periods to try to address the food shortage.


In a vaguely-worded decree, Venezuelan officials indicated that public and private sector employees could be forced to work in the country's fields for at least 60-day periods, which may be extended "if circumstances merit."

"Trying to tackle Venezuela's severe food shortages by forcing people to work the fields is like trying to fix a broken leg with a band aid," Erika Guevara Rosas, Americas' Director at Amnesty International, said in a statement.

What is next for those that refuse to be a slave to the system? Will the government realize that humans have a history of resorting to cannibalism for survival?

Edit add: Those fat politicians may just begin to look mighty appetizing!

I know, and you know. Try telling that to many of the fine folks here who think socialism is wonderful though. They refuse to hear it.

Thomas Jefferson's quote is so apt for this situation.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have."

LOL, a few years ago they were using Venezuela as a shining example of a socialism success. They loved Chavez... so did many in our current administration.

Pretty soon Venezuela is going to get some of that special brand of US democracy. At least it will make it easier for the CIA to move coke from Columbia to Maracaibo.

Socialist countries do well, as long as the people obey, as long as the slaves remain happy.

Yes, centralized, socialist control that made it illegal for anyone else who was smart enough to realize that having all your eggs in one basket is a bad idea to diversify and find other niches in the economy put them in this position.

You still don't get, and it's still a variation of "socialism isn't bad; they just didn't have the right people running it." IMO any system that is so dependent on having the "right people" all the time or it goes so spectacularly bust is maybe not the best system because it cannot adapt and react as well as other systems that allow the people to find their own solutions.

I'm not suggesting it's perfect, Venezuala would never have been a shining example..when I think of success I think of the good standard of living in some of the northern European countries. Canada has socialist leaning's.

I could agree with that for the most part..obey is more and more a part of any current system though.

Venezuela is a beautiful place with many good and proud people living there.
I'm sure you know that the majority of their troubles started when Chaves had the gall to nationalize the countries oil.
He kicked out the oil companies, kept their equipment and refused to pay after he was sued in US court over the matter.
I always admired Chaves and Venezuela for standing up to the soul draining corporations. Unfortunately, Those sins can never be forgiven by the PTB and Cuba and Russian Fed are not able to help them much, anymore.
when the suffering reaches a certain level, good ol' Uncle Sam will sweep in and save whoever is left and occupy the country, set up a puppet ruler (who will have to be taken out eventually) and give the nation back over to exxon.
Don't get me wrong, I am no Lefty, I just like pulling for the underdog.
