    1 in every 3 Venezuelans hungry – UN


    CARACAS: One of every three people in Venezuela is struggling to put enough food on the table to meet minimum nutrition requirements as the nation’s severe economic contraction and political upheaval persists, according to a study published Sunday by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

    A nationwide survey based on data from 8,375 questionnaires reveals a startling picture of the large number of Venezuelans surviving off a diet consisting largely of tubers and beans as hyperinflation renders many salaries worthless.

    A total of 9.3 million people — roughly one-third of the population -

    They feel the “Bern”... in their stomachs.

    Reagan was wrong... they cannot even provide bacon and beans for their slaves.

    “Socialists ignore the side of man that is the spirit. They can provide you shelter, fill your belly with bacon and beans, treat you when you're ill, all the things guaranteed to a prisoner or a slave. They don't understand that we also dream.”

    It will be the sort of horror story that will ensure Trump wins if he faces Sanders in the general election.

    It can't be all bad, at least they have energy to fill out surveys. Are hungry people really the issue you want to get an erection from?

    From bolshevik Bernie's Senate website:

    These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who's the banana republic now?

    1 of our dollars is equal to 73,232 of theirs.

    so for about 20 bucks you could be a millionaire down there.

    I think the point is they spread the wealth around so much there isn't anymore to spread.
    of course that doesn't mean that the political elite aren't living it up.

    they are living it up as course.

    ignoring the facts do not make them go away. VZ use to be one of the most prosperous central american countries out there
    no one went without and they actually had low levels of poverty. When that guy and his brother took over they turned
    the country into a cesspool of death and decay by their policies.

    it took no time at all to turn VZ from a prosperous country into a dump.

    that is the problem with socialism you run out of other peoples money.

    There are good places to live in the USA, but your country is still consumed by racism and hatred. It's gotta suck to live like that.

    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.
