Venezuela: We will eat fried rocks… #Socialism

Eat Rocks, Venezuela
Eat Rocks, Venezuela

Food prices skyrocket amid shortages in Venezuela… people are starving. And their government’s suggestions… fry rocks. No. I’m not joking. Governor Francisco Rangel is quoted as saying:

“We are capable of eating a stick, or instead of frying two eggs, fry two rocks, and we will eat fried rocks, but no one can beat us.”

They won’t have to beat you Gov, you’ve beaten yourself when your people are starving due to a government-induced food shortage!

Do you really think government officials are eating fried rocks? You KNOW they’re not! They’re just letting their citizens starve while they’re living high on the hog. Because in socialism, those at the top are the “haves” and if you’re not at the top you’re a “have not.” Gotta love that Socialism!
