So when your socialist agenda has the effect (it always has) of killing the incentive of food suppliers, what do you do when you’re huguito to quell the proletariats concerns about the lack of food? Why, steal, of course!
Venezuelan troops seize food
Jan 24, 2008 12:14 PM
Venezuela’s top food company has accused troops of illegally seizing more than 500 tonnes of food from its trucks as part of President Hugo Chavez’s campaign to stem shortages.
The leftist Chavez this week created a state food distributor and loosened some price controls, seeking to end months of shortages for staples like milk and eggs that have caused long lines and upset his supporters in the OPEC nation.
The highly publicised campaign has also included government crackdowns on accused smuggling, with the military seizing 1,600 tonnes of food and sending 1,200 troops to the border with Colombia.
Jose Anzola, a director of food company Alimentos Polar, told reporters that troops stopped 27 of its trucks over the last three days and described the seizures as “illegal, arbitrary and irresponsible.”
Leftists are dumber than a bag of rocks. (And that means you too, liberals!)
