VIDEO: 8-hour food line in Venezuela was HUGO

VIDEO: 8-hour food line in Venezuela was HUGO

Socialist paradise…

The food shortages in Venezuela have continued to worsen to the point where thousands of people are fleeing the country to Colombia if they’re able.

FOX News Latino reported:

In just 12 hours, more than 35K Venezuelans cross Colombian border to buy food, medicine

In just 12 hours, more than 35,000 Venezuelans crossed the border into Colombia on Sunday to buy food and medicines in the city of Cucuta, when the Venezuelan government agreed to opened border crossings for one day only.

People began crossing the Simon Bolivar international bridge at 5:00 a.m. to purchase products that are scarce in Venezuela.

“We’re from here in San Antonio (and), honestly, we don’t have any food to give our children, so I don’t think it’s fair that the border is still closed,” a Venezuelan woman told EFE in Cucuta.

The woman, who preferred to not give her name, crossed the international bridge with her husband and children ages 5 and 2.

For those without the means to leave the country, there is little choice other than standing in line for up to eight hours to get into a grocery store that’s likely almost empty.

The Associated Press posted this insane video on Twitter:

Of course, humans aren’t the only victims of this crisis. USA Today reports that abandoned pets are becoming a sadly common sight:

Pets are the latest victims of Venezuela’s economic crisis

Every day on her way to work, Angela Exposito sees more abandoned dogs along the road, discarded by owners who can no longer afford to take care of them.

Exposito, who heads Fundanimalia, a non-profit animal rescue organization, said abandoned pets have skyrocketed over the last three months as the country’s economy descends into ever-worsening chaos. Until recently, most stray dogs she saw were mutts or mixed breeds. Now she sees more purebreds, such as golden retrievers, left to forage for garbage along the Pan American Highway that passes by this industrial city of 150,000, about 50 miles west of the capital, Caracas.

Household pets are the latest casualty in a country where food and other essential goods are becoming ever scarce, inflation is rampant, looting is escalating and electric blackouts occur regularly.

Here’s a thing to remember: Do you know who’s probably not starving in Venezuela right now? Members of the politically connected class.

Socialist leaders rarely suffer like the people they rule. Strange, huh?

Thus we see now, the sad end of the USA if Clinton et al are elected.
The elite i.e. The Chavezistas, will never ever voluntarily give up power or change their beliefs based on what their eyes tell them.
They will look at things as they are, and decide that more suppression of the people is what is needed because otherwise they, themselves, would need to give up power to the people. I’m sure there is a thriving black market for the things that are really necessary.
Comparing,now, to the Clintonistas, it will be the same. No matter what happens she will never ever let go. As president, she will force her will on the country so that she can rule, not govern. The Clinton’s do not understand the word “Govern”. They only understand the word “Rule”.
She would suppress the people to whatever extent she needed to in order to enact her will upon the people.
As we’ve seen for the last 8 years, a republican congress will do nothing to stop her.

Socialist leaders rarely suffer like the people they rule. Strange, huh?

But if they were suffering, they wouldn’t be able to keep their country thriving.


Socialism, it’s what’s not for supper.

What are they buying food and med supplies in Columbia with?
A sheaf of Venezuelan money should be worth a box of Kleenex (or, rather, the cheapo generic substitute).

Another peculiarity in this story; when things are really short, one tends to see fewer pets in the streets. Pets are abandoned and left to scavenge; but that doesn’t last long, as they’re soon captured and eaten.

If they could go to Colombia, why would they go back to Venezuela?

When do Sean Penn, Kevin Spacey and Danny Glover arrive with their humanitarian supplies?

Toilet paper, food, medicine, beer and cola are all in short supply.

Progressive bullshit, sadly, is not.

The important thing to remember is, #never Trump!
According to some of the genius’s on this site, he’s the same or worse than Hillary.

Government efficiency micromanaging the living daylights out of everything. Big gov leads to disaster.

One need look no further than N. Korea and Kim Jong Fat to see the plight of the common people compared to those at the top. I hear these Democratic Socialists asking, “What would you do with your time if you didn’t have to worry about your income?” Well, if history (and present observations) are any indicator, probably stand in line for toilet paper.

Catastrophic Anthropogenic National Misalignment.
