The Daily Caller helps explain Venezuelan mess to Soccer-Mom and Joe-Sixpack (with a little help from their friends at Babalu-Blog)


“Now in the street, there is violence, and lots of work to be done!”

Workin’ so hard like a soldier
Can’t afford a thing on TV
Deep in my heart, I abhor ya
Can’t get food for the kid–GOOD-GOD!

The above battle-cry by many Venezuelans translated into Joe-Sixpack-ese and transmitted beyond the borders of Miami-Dade by our friends at The Daily Caller:

“Nicolas Maduro and his cronies are robbing Venezuela blind. It’s all under the guise of something the Chavistas call “21th Century Socialism,” mind you. But it still amounts to the government stealing businesses and replacing the owners and managers with vengeful, bumbling and rapacious government hacks. So the results are the same as old-fogey 20th-century socialism. Here’s a nation sitting atop the world’s largest oil reserves and earning $100 billion in oil revenues annually — but its citizens can’t find toilet paper in any stores.”

Entire intransigence here.
