Hugo Chavez Spearheads Raids as Food Prices Skyrocket

Mountains of rotting food found at a government warehouse, soaring prices and soldiers raiding wholesalers accused of hoarding: Food supply is the latest battle in President Hugo Chavez's socialist revolution.

Venezuelan army soldiers swept through the working class, pro-Chavez neighborhood of Catia in Caracas last week, seizing 120 tons of rice along with coffee and powdered milk that officials said was to be sold above regulated prices.

Presented by President Hugo Chávez as an instrument to make shopping for groceries easier, the ``Good Life Card'' is making various segments of the population wary because they see it as a furtive attempt to introduce a rationing card similar to the one in Cuba.

The measure could easily become a mechanism to control the population, according to civil society groups.

He's just trying to help everyone get along.

That's not scary, is it?

This is why some parts of the world work much better as "tribes" than as republics.

Large government will probably outlast our lifetimes, but its on the way out as demand for resources increases, and the ability to apply fossil fuels toward dominating entire countries evaporates.

Follow the money, and the Oil - there has been a dirty hand at play here for quite the while - I wonder whose hand it is?

The system works!
And for some reason this also reminds me of the horse from Animal Farm.

Making it safely through the day in Venezeula’s capital, Caracas, one of the world’s most dangerous cities, requires a careful mix of planning and precaution. As the Venezuelan economy has crumbled, rising crime has created what one local group called a “feeling of permanent and silent fear.” Here’s how four middle-class residents told us they try to stay safe.

New Ypork Times should be reveling in that socialist utopia. Its what they want here.
The robbery stops when its more dangerous to rob people,than what the trickets you steal are worth. Make the bastards pay with blood.

Let them sit and starve while they curse yanqui imperialism and praise the great Chavez and his Bolivarian revolution. Take a good look, because American leftists are just as vengeful, jealous and short sighted as these morons. There are white assholes in my family who I know for a fact wish that some personal misfortune would befall me just because I humiliated them with facts and reason. These people are the same wild eyed, infantilized, frothing at the mouth imbeciles they've been since Robespierre and The Terror and they would gladly see us and our families all wiped out if it meant they could have their way.

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan authorities arrested a National Guard soldier over the weekend and accused him of shooting a pregnant 18 year-old during an incident that local media described as a melee over scarce pork. Alexandra Colopoy was gunned down by First Sergeant David Rebolledo, according to a tweet by the state prosecutor late Sunday night. No further details were provided, but critics of President Nicolas Maduro’s leftist government seized on the incident, calling it a stark example of the oil-rich country’s meltdown.

SAN CRISTOBAL/BARINAS, Venezuela, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Hungry mobs ransacked a food collection center, and a supermarket in Venezuela's western Andean state of Merida on Thursday and reportedly even slaughtered cattle grazing in a field as unrest over food shortages spread through the country.
An opposition lawmaker from Merida, Carlos Paparoni, said four people had died and 10 were injured in the chaos over the last two days, but he did not specify the circumstances.
