The Joys Of Socialism: Venezuelans Are Looting Corpses For Jewelry And Bones

Venezuelans, desperate to find anything of value in their country where the currency has collapsed and widespread political and economic chaos rules, are now targeting whatever commodity they can get their hands on: this includes jewelry and human bones, which desperate locals can then sell for a profit, according to the BBC.

The British network spoke to relatives of those who had family members at one cemetery, the Cementerio del Sur, who are now standing guard at their relatives tombs to keep looters away.

Eladio Bastida, whose wife is buried in the cemetery said: "I come here every week, or every two weeks. I keep watch. I worry I’ll arrive one day and she’ll be gone. When I buried her, you could just walk in here, but lately you can barely reach her grave, because every tomb has been opened and the remains taken out."

Well, that would never happen if America adopted democratic socialism, because our command-and-control economy would be expertly run only by the best and brightest from Harvard and Yale.  :whistle:

I don’t doubt  that Venezuela is a failed state. But I wonder if some of these stories are a little exaggerated?

I would like to see the looks on the faces of the wealthy, liberal elites when the thieves i.e. socialism enforcers with guns drawn knock on their doors demanding they turn over 99% of the "wealth they didn't earn." For liberal multi-billionaires it will be far more than 99% because nobody should have more than a million dollars.
Of course, that's after  the people who believe in free market capitalism and the U.S. constitution split from the socialists and idiots who believe in "fair distribution of wealth" who now have their own country to ruin.

Oh, the ones whose mommy and daddy bought their way in (or who had 'sponsors', like BHO)?
