What Desperate Venezuelans are Being Forced to do With Rotten Meat is Exactly Why Socialism is Horrible

Published

on

Things are getting really, really bad in the socialist nation of Venezuela, so much so that citizens in the country have been reduced to eating rotten meat.

Yeah, that whole “share the wealth” thing doesn’t seem to be working out too well for these folks now, does it? If only liberals could get it through their heads that no matter how many different ways you try it, socialism ends the exact same way.

The reason so much of the meat has gone rotten in the country is because refrigeration units have been shut down due to rolling blackouts. But that’s not the only reason.

Another reason for the rotten meat is that runaway inflation has made the currency nearly worthless. Venezuelans are unable to buy fresh meat, and have to settle for eating rotten meat.

“Of course, they eat the meat — thanks to Maduro,” said butcher Johel Prieto. “The food of the poor is rotten food.”

Prieto told The Associated Press that he ground up a rotten side of beef and mixed it with fresh meat in order to mask the spoilage.

The Venezuelan government has tried to slow its inflation woes by demonetizing the money, the Bolivar, and increasing taxes. According to the International Monetary Fund, inflation could climb to a staggering 1 million percent by year’s end.

The government has also revoked a benefit they were previously offering to citizens — lower gas prices — unless they now register for a state “fatherland” identification card.

This is absolutely horrifying in every conceivable way. There’s no other way to fix this than for Venezuela to abandon socialism and adopt a free market system. How they would do this and what it would look like to make such a drastic transition is up for debate.

If something isn’t done soon, lots of people are going to get sick and die from eating this rotten meat.

This, kids, is the fruit of big government. And the left wonders why so many folks don’t want it?

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
