Poor Cuba

Bernie's socialist paradise Cuba propped up by Venezuela forced to ration food and essentials. How can it be?

"Cuban government announces it will ration food and everyday goods amid 'grave economic crisis'after Venezuela was forced to cut its aid to the communist-run island"

That gun ban that the populace somewhat supported to "stem the violence" looms large. If only hindsight brought back your weapons & ammo....

GUN CONTROL?

No socialist will ever allow guns in the hands of citizens. It would be dangerous to their health. Are there any Dimocrats running for POTUS that "DON'T" want to ban all guns?

On full display for all to see...socialism, Statists, progressivism...the Venezuelan “green raw deal...”

Complete article with photos at link below.

Harrowing pictures of emaciated former oil workers in Venezuela capture their plight more than a week after they went on hunger strike over lost wages

Daily Mail
By STEFAN BOSCIA FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 08:50 EDT, 8 June 2019 | UPDATED: 01:29 EDT, 9 June 2019

The workers used to be a part of one of the most productive and lucrative oil exporting industries in the world...

Despite having the largest proven oil reserves in the world, Venezuela is now producing less than half the amount of oil it was in 1997 when Mr Chavez came into power.

The crash of the oil industry comes amidst wider economic turmoil - the country's inflation rate hit 130,060 percent in 2018 and the country's GDP shrank by 22.5 per cent in the third quarter last year.
