Soldiers Reduced to Stealing Goats for Food in Socialist Venezuela

It might seem that the triumph of statism would at least be good for people who are employed as guardians of the state. But in the end it works out poorly for everyone. For example, in socialist Venezuela, hungry soldiers have been reduced to stealing goats:

Over the weekend, six members of the Venezuelan military were detained by local authorities for stealing goats, the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported Sunday. It said the soldiers confessed to stealing the goats and said they did it to feed themselves, since they had no food left in their barracks.

“It’s not a good sign when your military doesn’t have enough food, and when the military has been relegated to guarding and protecting food lines,” said Jason Marczak, director of the Latin America Economic Growth Initiative at the Atlantic Council. “This is endemic of the problems going on across the country.”

Venezuela recently tried jacking up the minimum wage, as Donald Trump is open to doing here. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t seem to have helped.

On the positive side, government employees are enjoying 5-day weekends.

You would think that Tinseltown leftists like Sean Penn and Danny Glover who ostentatiously supported the Bolivarian Revolution would be down there to share some of their champagne and caviar with the guys responsible for enforcing that revolution, so that they don’t have to eat other people’s goats. But like South Africa, Venezuela is no longer a trendy topic, now that lefties have gotten their way, and other people have to live with the aftermath.

    It is a short journey to the discovery that if one has the weapons and training the one with the gold/power can be protected for pennies or assassinated for it all. The history of South American politics 101.

    Coming soon to a nation very near you.

    Funny how the likes of Glover and Penn never move down to Venezuela while praising it to be superior than America. Wonder why?

  5. Pegon Zellschmidt says:

    Silly. Danny and Sean buy their groceries at the capitalist Beverly Hills Whole Foods, not from any stinkin’ mom and pop or government owned dump.

    Celebs only support what they are paid to support.

    Remember how the media coverage of the collapse in Venezuela has been wall to wall for the last six months?

    Yeah, me either.

    Instead, we have had 24/7 Clown Show apprentice shoved down our throats.

    I have no gold, but I have plenty of lead.

    I have the weapons and training but I choose my employers very carefully.

    Incoherhently, Moonbattery will spend a vast majority of its time deliverying Anti-Trump rants and rages, while intellectually, failing to link the socialists failure in HUGO-VILLE pointed out here to their antiTrump SHILLARY and Obama inspired march towards another socialist failure in their G** D*amn America Progressive crusades

    Foraging: how armies fed themselves from Sargon The Great on forward. Kind of hard on the countryside and the peasants, though.

    At least they aren’t trying to make the goats their girlfriends, like the Cesspoolistanis do!
