America’s Future Under the Left: Socialist Venezuela has No Coffins to Bury the Dead

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On June 16, 2014 @ 2:25 pm In The Point | 7 Comments




Hugo Chavez and his seance bus driving buddy Maduro have managed to top Lenin and Castro. At least neither of those geniuses of command economies were working with a country in which money came out of the ground.

Maduro has managed to bring Venezuela to the point where it can’t manage to stock toilet paper, milk and now even coffins.


Now, even in death, Venezuelans are afflicted by shortages. Coffin production has dropped between 20% and 30% this year for lack of materials, forcing funeral and burial delays and boosting cask prices, industry officials say.

Pedro Navarro, former president of Venezuela’s funeral parlor association, has blamed lagging production at the state-run foundry Sidor. In short supply especially was the metal leaf used in the construction of coffins. “Some factories are paralysed. Others are buying thicker leaf,” he said.

The country, which has a population of 30 million, has about 50 coffin factories. The president of one of Caracas’ biggest coffin companies, Ataudes Venezuela, said that glue, varnish, paint and fabric for the interiors, was scarce.

Demand for coffins has grown in recent years. Venezuela has one of the world’s highest murder rates. People have been coping with shortages since 2006, long before the death from cancer last year of the pro-socialist president, Hugo Chávez.

I’m sure Maduro is even now issuing a press release blaming the CIA and ordering his thugs to find coffin hoarders and expropriate their coffins to give to the people.

Giving coffins to the people is a timeless Socialist hobby.

Fortunately the good people at Democratic Underground have seen through this filthy scam.


rickyhall  – The rich punishing the socialists? Just another day in paradise. . .

Spouting Horn  – Shortages are good for the environment. Blackouts? No CO2 released. No toilet paper? Trees not being cut down. No meat? No cows flatulating into the atmosphere changing the climate.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

So - when's he emigrating? Anyone with a DU account want to ask him? Or is it the usual leftist drivel - other peoples shortages are good for the environment. I'm compassionate, so deserve it all.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
