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.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

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.
