Meanwhile, in Venezuela …

A mineral-rich socialist diet:

The governor of the Venezuelan state of Bolívar has some advice for dealing with the widespread shortage of food across the country. Can’t find eggs at your local Venezuelan grocery store? Why not try fried rocks instead? […] Governor Francisco Rangel said during his radio show on Tuesday, September 29, that the Venezuelan people should not “yield to temptation” or worry about not being able to find a pack of flour or sardines to buy amid the shortages. […] “Let them take away whatever they want. We are capable of eating a stick, or instead of frying two eggs, fry two rocks, and we will eat fried rocks, ” he said, “but no one can beat us.” […] Rangel referred to the so-called economic war and the “induced inflation” that he and other ruling-party leaders claim is being caused by the opposition. “Now that prices are sky high, we need to fight against this together. Let them not feel like they have beaten us,” he said.

A functional world order should always have a few socialist regimes hanging on, to do the teaching job the education system can’t.

    As Rush Limbaugh observed leftists are always campaigning. B. Obama often acts as if he has little political power and tries to manipulate public opinion such that he is granted more power. Of course the opposing party are also leftist and do more or less the same thing. To the progressive the solution to all problems, even the ones they have caused themselves, is the granting of more power and money to them. They never retreat no matter how dire the circumstances. I keep thinking that the Venezuela ratchet has moved as far left as it can go, and I am proven to be wrong.

    It actually makes me glad that the 2002 coup d’etat attempt failed. If the Venezuelan regime fell them Hugo Chavez would become another Latin American socialist martyr like Salvador Allende and he would have to deal with more decades of documentary films about another lost chance of a socialism that could have worked, Noam Chomsky wouldn’t have stop talking by now.

    Oldie but goodie:

    Midnight Petrograd… A night watchman spots a shadow trying to sneak by. “Stop! Who goes there? Documents!” The frightened person chaotically shuffles through his pockets and drops a paper. A soldier picks it up and reads slowly, with difficulty: “”… “Hmm… a foreigner, sounds like…” “A spy, looks like…. Let’s shoot him on the spot!” Then reads further: ” ‘Proteins: none, Sugars: none, Fats: none…’ You are free to go, proletarian comrade! Long live the World Revolution!”

    Venezuela’s trajectory over the last 10 year or so so is like something Ayn Rand would have written to caricature leftist economic ideas. I read Atlas Shrugged as a high-schooler and thought leftists would never be *that* pointlessly evil and stupid. Well, Rand knew better–she grew up in the Soviet Union after all. Venezuela is governed by Poe’s Law at this point.
