Everyday life in the “Patria Querida”

Bu6woWkIEAAwKfB

No explanation is needed to see how hard everyday life is for many Venezuelans. Reports like this, from Puerto La Cruz, pretty much say it all.

People were waiting in line for powdered milk in a local supermarket (some had been in line for eleven hours, since 3 am) when a few people tried to skip the line, creating a sudden quarrel. Local police officers intervened, and fired non-lethal ammo to disperse the crowd. Ten people were wounded with the rubber bullets, including a little girl. Four people were arrested. People were waiting since the wee hours for their 2 Kilos of milk.

As i said, life is hard for most, because a selected few are having it pretty good. And then there’s Maria Gabriela Chavez…

  1. María Gabriela. Sounds like Mariela, doesn’t it? Of course, Mariela could run rings around her, but then again, she’ll be representing the government of a certifiable moron, so she can be a pretty dim bulb herself. Just another classic Latrine “development.”
