Venezuelans Throng Grocery Stores Under Military Protection

Quote:
Shoppers thronged grocery stores across Caracas today as deepening shortages led the government to put Venezuela’s food distribution under military protection.

Long lines, some stretching for blocks, formed outside grocery stores in the South American country’s capital as citizens search for scarce basic items such as detergent and chicken.

“I’ve visited six stores already today looking for detergent -- I can’t find it anywhere,” said Lisbeth Elsa, a 27-year-old janitor, waiting in line outside a supermarket in eastern Caracas. “We’re wearing our dirty clothes again because we can’t find it. At this point I’ll buy whatever I can find.”

A dearth of foreign currency exacerbated by collapsing oil prices has led to shortages of imports from toilet paper to car batteries, and helped push annual inflation to 64 percent in November. The lines will persist as long as price controls remain in place, Luis Vicente Leon, director of Caracas-based polling firm Datanalisis, said today in a telephone interview.

Government officials met with representatives from supermarket chains today to guarantee supplies, state news agency AVN reported. Interior Minister Carmen Melendez said yesterday that security forces would be sent to food stores and distribution centers to protect shoppers.


"Government officials met with representatives from supermarket chains today to guarantee supplies" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, good luck with that.

Venezuelan shortages, long lines spark violence, arrests

Quote:
At least a dozen protesters arrested in Venezuela remained in jail on Monday and masked assailants burned a bus overnight amid scattered unrest over swelling lines for basic goods, activists said.

Police rounded up 16 people for protesting in front of stores over the weekend, according to the opposition MUD coalition, which said four of them were released shortly after.

Rights group Penal Forum said 18 protesters were still behind bars on Monday. The government did not confirm that.

Venezuela is suffering from chronic shortages of goods ranging from diapers to flour that have worsened this year because of an ebb in deliveries during Christmas. The scarcity has forced shoppers across Venezuela to line up in front of stores before dawn.

The MUD also accused soldiers posted outside shops of banning photos of the lines, which sometimes snake around blocks.


Socialism FTW!

Venezuela just defaulted, moving deeper into crisis

Quote:
Venezuela, a nation spiraling into a humanitarian crisis, has missed a debt payment. It could soon face grim consequences.

The South American country defaulted on its debt, according to a statement issued Monday night by S&P Global Ratings. The agency said the 30-day grace period had expired for a payment that was due in October.

A debt default risks setting off a dangerous series of events that could exacerbate Venezuela's food and medical shortages.
If enough holders of a particular bond demand full and immediate repayment, it can prompt investors across all Venezuelan bonds to demand the same thing. Since Venezuela doesn't have the money to pay all its bondholders right now, investors would then be entitled to seize the country's assets -- primarily barrels of oil -- outside its borders.


Socialism is retarded.

The little kid in a communist country (originally the Union of Fewer and Fewer States):

Kid: Grandpa, what is a line?
Grandpa: When I was a kid we would stand in a line to get meat.
Kid: Oh.
Kid: ...
kid: Grandpa, what is "meat?"

Ah, I see old JB has experience. This is, in fact, the correct answer.

The source of this mess I see in the western world, is because of a big attack on nations. To dissolve that you have to bring in 'identity politics', thereby destroying the glue of that society. Polarise the people into folders of them and not them. A good start I'd say. I see this attack as a challenge for the western values we have come to indulge for so many good years.

So, here is how a great mind goes...(a-hah!)

Western worl values and it's challenges.

Number one : Farmers
Number two : Energy
Number three : Feminism
Number four : Men at work
Number five : Infrastructure
Number six : Copulation
Number seven : male marrow whitering.
Number eight : Destroy of Nations.

Solusion to number one:
We cannot produce enough food for our own population == Dependency of farmers of mediocre and shitty standards.
Easy fix : Voting. The established parties will suffocate money where it does no good use and extends this into agriculture, by far. It's a core point to weaken the stronger.
Reason is : Because they do the global bidding to destroy nations.

Solution to number two:
We demontage all nuklear power plants for exchange of wind and coal. Making us import chinese tech in wind and mixed nations into coal energy.
Thorium breed reactors equals : Less CO2, Recycle of past nuclear fuel, aplenty to use. Subvention this.

Solution to number three:
End voting rights for women under the period of eight years and look how things go. It can be bad, but most things is at this point.
No party imburse this. I think the majority is not ready for this step/experiment. And I hope we should never have to. I cannot cunt it out though. I've seen too much women hood agendas.
Women also do have a tendency to tend to the needy, no matter may it be false or wrong. I call it 'The Nightingale syndrome'

Number four :
Give women the option and give an OK for women to stay at home if that is what they want. This implies only to residents and should not be given to immigrants or those opposing western values. That group should be punished with a fee for not contributing. They should feel unwelcome. Lazy as they come, they will end their citizenship.
Give those that are women, a pay for it.

Number five :
Good roads mean good transportation. This is necessary for all. We fix this by exiting Soros globalisation agenda. We fix this with the Englishmen and the Americans, existing mad institutions. Sometimes, even at these times, a country has to toss the dice.
Good schools will come if we give the moral guide and the support the good teachers need, to continue educating people. If they give the students/pupils a foundation to stand on their own, we will have a very stable foundation. Get rid of the Soros teachers.
Good hospitals : Get rid of the Soros doctrine of implementing intergration of shitty citizens from 'gold digger countries'. Coming with pestilence, car burning, school burning, stonethrowers, molesters, just degenerate wanna-be-western-value-killers. Those given the right to enter, has to be necessary for that nation.
Good Police : Give them room to use good for the society, not orders to destroy it.
Good judges : Give freedom of speech an upper hand. Then the unjust will succumb. Do not give in to tolerance against freedom of speech.

Number six :
More snow? Give the people a day off for some days with the man and wife at home. Isolated with 'nothing to do'. Let the 'car stay in the garage' for once!

Number seven :
Militia for males for everyone at the age of 18, for one year. Club for men to mingle and discuss. (english plus here).
Let men and women be what they are without guilt for being said gender. I.E. Freedom of speech. The western society will flourish and improve.

Number eight :
Nations will, if fallen, mix again as fat and water in a canister. The homogen groups won't go away. Even if of some mystery force, all earth people unite. It will be for a short time of period. The urge to be unique is too strong in one person. The unity will be in belief of what is right ( faith ) and principles. That group will become Manchester United!

You could as well try to mix dwarf chimpanses and chimpanses then put them into a multi cultural society.

In a final say: Western values tops all the rest there is. None comes close to the openness, freedom, expression, philosophy, literature, prosperity, science and tech. It's a platform, a central point for other cultures to participate in. If this are not to continue, the planet we live in will be just shit for all mankind and die in a sunburst, expected in about 4 bn years from now and on.

Proof number 1: 1173 BC a multi cultural society within the area of eastern mediterranian, containing about egypt, mesopotamia, phenice, canoteese (not knuteese), and such else, fell because of - imigration.

Proof number 3 : 1500s in South America, the imigrant detoriated the standing civilization of the Inca.
Froof number 4: 1800s in North America the imigrant detproated tje standomg tribes of that continent.
Proof number 2: The Roman empire detoriated because of free food for anyone on the soil of the empire - Led to imigration.

The positives: Despite the destruction, mankind has improved in the line of time.
My hope: To die before shit hits the fan.
My wish: Being born in 1920s!!!

Some are better more was better.

None of this would be a problem if we just put a chip in everybody's head, like I been saying.

Also, this is unimportant. What's important is Stormy Daniels.

Exactly. It's the one way Democrats can comppound their fuck-up and keep the white house in Republican hands for another 14 years or so. It would be too good to be true. :lol:

I've caught on at this point, but I'm still new enough to have some hope left that this is all an elaborate joke on newcomers.

His head pops out, and in a squeaky voice, out comes shit like "A call for full employment is a call to war!" or "Capitalism is just late-stage feudalism!"

Socialism (and communism) are great. If you want to get to the power and have no ethics. It is so easy to push the right buttons and followers will come. For instance, taking from rich is a great argument. Average Joe is jealous, seeing wealthier people than himself is poisoning his mind. Tell him you are going to re-distribute wealth and he will be yours. No joke, this has worked so many times in past. Classic example, Lenin in Russia. His guest for power was pure success after he told blue-collars how he is going to eliminate rich. And legit Russian government was too tolerant to disallow his propaganda.
But there is no need to go a century back. Look right here, in the USA. To save this country socialism as other totalitarian movements should be promptly outlawed and known members should be jailed as enemies of nation. It is not happening, they are gaining momentum and there is enough fools to support their movement. Right now they are merely weakening the country, but as they succeed in creating more poverty they will have more and more supporters. It is not easy to convert someone living in their american dream with a nice home and sufficient income. But strip their income and they will listen to you. This is exactly what left is doing, look at all those homeless and jobless in Dem cities.
