Venezuelans Now Eating Cats, Dogs and Birds

Bernie Sanders is telling us that Socialism is a wonderful thing.  We simply take the money from the rich people and redistribute it to everyone else.  Free college!  Free apartments!  Free laptops!  Free money to newlyweds to start a home!  Free day care for new parents!  Free health care for everyone! Free retirement at age 60...because you have worked enough!

Yea!! Yea!!  Yea for Bernie!!...say all the college kids and a surprising number of idiotic adults.

As we have been blogging about the past few weeks, it turns out that Socialism in Venezuela hasn't turned out so great...again.

People are reportedly eating dogs, cats and pigeons because Socialism hasn't provided enough food for the populace.

So, you know Venezuela is on the verge of economic collapse. The price of oil has dropped precipitously over the past few years—that’s a budgetary nightmare for a nation dependent on its oil exports. As a result, basic necessities, like toilet paper, are being rationed. There’s limited access to television and long distance phone service. There are rolling blackouts due to energy shortages. And now the government is cutting back the workweek to just two days. This comes at a time when Venezuela’s citizens need government services the most. Supermarkets are not stocked regularly, so there’s a food shortage; people are starving. They’ve resorted to looting to survive. You would think that the government can’t really afford to print its own currency because it’s so broke would be the cherry on top of this socialist nightmare. Nope—the hunger games appear to have begun, as Venezuelans are now hunting stray dogs, cats, and pigeons for sustenance (via PanAm Post):

Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.
Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger.
People are also reportedly gathering vegetables from the ground and trash to eat as well.
The crisis in Venezuela is worsening everyday due in part to shortages reaching 70 percent. This to go along with the world’s highest level of inflation.
The population’s desperation has begun to show, with looting and robberies for food increasing all the time. This Sunday, May 1, six Venezuelan military officials were arrested for stealing goats to ease their hunger, as there was no food at the Fort Manaure military base.
The Venezuelan Chamber of Food (Cavidea) said many businesses only have 15 days worth of inventory. Production has been effected as a result of a shortage of raw materials, as well as exhausted national and international supply resources.

Just when you thought this left wing dystopia couldn’t get any worse—it does.


"Wow Dennis!  That's crazy!  Just a few countries South of here, their economy is collapsing, their money is near worthless and they are eating dogs for food!  I'm sure glad we live in America where that kind of thing can NEVER happen!!  I'm sure glad that here in America we can do whatever we want, we can tax whomever we want, we can print as much money as we want, we can elect whomever we want, we can define marriage any way we want, we can abort whomever we want, we can screw whomever we want, we can get any drug we desire, we can divorce whomever we want, we can throw the 10 commandments overboard...and none of that matters one iota!  We simply can't ever have anything bad happen to us! It's like we are the Superman of nations!  We are indestructible!...and we always will be!"

Obadiah 1:3
The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’ would seem that 99% of Americans are deceived and clueless.  Deceived by the Evil One and clueless as to what the Word of God actually says.  Sadly, that seems to even apply to many (most?) who are sitting in pews across the country.
