No burial for you! Collapsing economy affects funerals in Venenozuela.

34529_BTK9JM

Anyone who has lived in a communist totalitarian state knows that oppression and destitution affect not just the living, but also the dead.  Twenty-first century socialism is no different from communism in this respect.

Right  now, caskets and cremation urns are in such short supply in Maduro's Venenozuela that it is very difficult to afford a funeral or to bury the dead with dignity.

To make matters worse, as this funerary crisis mounts, the number of homicides continues to increase.  It's a ghoulish double whammy in a country already battered by the inevitable effects of economic policies designed in the Castro Kingdom by Caracastan's colonial masters.

This shortage in caskets and urns has led to a supply-and-demand nightmare.  As unburied corpses mount, an inflationary spiral has been set in motion, causing burial costs to rise by 619 percent.  The general inflation rate in Venenozuela for the past year has been "only" 60 percent.

The Maduro government blames this crisis and the inflation on "profiteering" and "hoarding" by heartless capitalists.

Oh, the joys of life --and death-- in Cubazuela!

    And this in an oil-rich country, which should be doing at least as well as Chile, not to say Norway. And yes, all the Latrines know the score, but being Latrines, they remain full of shit. It is simply impossible to respect such people.
