Authoritarians and Socialists in Venezuela are spreading the joy of their Leftist ideals by starving their citizens. Now the poor people of Venezuela are having to hunt flamingos, anteaters and even dogs. It would be nice if the U.S. could help the people of Venezuela, but apparently their leaders don't feel like they need help from us Capitalist scum.


Venezuela’s food crisis has gotten so bad that people are apparently killing pink flamingos and other protected animals in order to stave off hunger.



The collapse of the country’s economy has made it difficult to import basic goods such as food and medicine, created acute shortages and stirred deep-seated anger toward Maduro. A recent study conducted by three universities found that in 2015 87 percent of Venezuelans didn’t have enough money to buy sufficient food for their families.

The lack of food has even earned its own nickname: “The Maduro Diet.”

I hope their leaders eat flamingos and turn pink. Give them a taste of their own medicine...


(Nerd joke. Flamingos are pink because of their diet).

No kidding. I remember when all these hollywood idiots were praising Chavez as the grand example of socialism.

But it is really bad there.

Back in July, they were eating the zoo animals:

Starving Venezuelans Break Into Zoo And Eat Equally Starving Animals

Malaria is the highest in decades and diphtheria is coming back after 24 years. And of course, the Government is doubling down on Socialism.

They eat krill, chock full of astixanthin, same reason salmon have pink meat.

On topic...no completely socialist economy survives. People must be made responsible for themselves, perhaps their tribe, but national socialism is a failed experiment time and time again.

Food is food I guess. This is what happens when total anarchy arises from the ashes of a corrupt government. Better than eating human flesh I guess.

So are you an anarchist?

Sorry, but I won't allow anyone with that attitude allow my country to burn away without a fight! But you go on with your bad self!

Horrible how it's descended to this. How does stopping this stuff even happen anymore. As it goes outside help might implement another banana republic in the guise of stopping the one that is there.

Yeah. I know. Didn't intend for my remark to be so flip.

Oil and its bi-products account for 80-90% of Venezuela's total revenue.

U.S. imports of Venezuelan crude and petroleum products are down 30% in eight years.
Total Crude Oil and Products Imports from Venezuela

Consumer prices Inflation rate is at 545.9% (2016 est.)
CIA World Fact Book

Exports from Venezuela sank -58.4% since 2011 and year over year, the value of Venezuelan exports fell -46.3% from 2014 to 2015.
Venezuela’s Top 10 Exports

Their transition to bolster mining, manufacturing, and agriculture exports didn't come fast enough. Almost looks like the country is poised for a do-over. Its gold reserves aren't high enough to warrant invasion by a not-so-well-meaning state. They're not even in the top 10 of world gold producers.
The top 10 gold producing countries

Off-shore businesses won't invest or do start-ups because of the difficulty getting dollars to buy essential goods and services. And the state could well end up just nationalizing the business and seizing assets like they did with Exxon.

Cannot imagine the conditions the people are living in day after day. The crime rate has to be astronomical at this point. Gangs absorbed by newly formed crime cartels. Those cartels will end up buying dirty politicians, even in a new government.

Maybe DoS T-Rex is especially suited to make a visit to Venezuela... but more likely it will be the IMF.

I don't either, but I am not so far gone to say "Let it burn" YET?

My primal instinct to survive has kept me from committing suicide for quite awhile, so I might as well stay around to fight?
