Forgive me dear readers.
When socialist countries implode things start disappearing. First it’s meat, then bread, then soap, then toilet paper, and then that absolute necessity of a socialist paradise, booze. Then it’s only a matter of time before people start filling the streets and toppling statues of Lenin, or in this case Hugo Chavez.
Why? Because without alcohol socialism of the kind we see in Venezuela is simply intolerable. Ask anyone who lived in the Soviet Union.
