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?

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
