Socialism is a curse that should be wished only on an enemy.
Just 20 years ago, Venezuelans were the wealthiest people in Latin America. Then they voted for socialism.
Today, Venezuelans starve in the streets, eat out of dumpsters and die in knife fights in the streets while fighting over dollar bills.
Now, facing a bread shortage that is spawning massive lines and souring the national mood, the Venezuelan government is now detaining bakers and seizing bakeries. See here.
“In a statement, the government said the bakers had been selling underweight bread and were using price-regulated flour to illegally make specialty items, like sweet rolls and croissants.”
In response to long bread lines, the government has announced that the lines will be banned.
