Venezuela has a bread shortage. The government has decided bakers are the problem.BOGOTA, COLOMBIA Facing a bread shortage that is spawning massive lines and souring the national mood, the Venezuelan government is responding this week by detaining bakers and seizing establishments.In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad “economic war” aimed at destabilizing the country.In a statement, the government said the bakers had been selling underweight bread and were using price-regulated flour to illegally make specialty items, like sweet rolls and croissants.The government said bakeries are only allowed to produce French bread and white loaves, or pan canilla, with government-imported flour. However, in a tweet on Thursday, price control czar William Contreras said only 90 percent of baked goods had to be price-controlled products.Two bakeries were also seized for 90 days for breaking a number of rules, including selling overpriced bread.Juan Crespo, the president of the Industrial Flour Union called Sintra-Harina, which represents 9,000 bakeries nationwide, said the government’s heavy hand isn’t going to solve the problem.

What no one knows how to bake bread at home in Venezuela?
fuel and electricity - rationed. Materials to build a solar oven - rationed. Wheat, sugar, yeast, etc., - rationed. Under Socialism (Hillary Care, Obama Care, etc), if you're gonna go outside the government provided system, also known as the Black Market - you're a criminal.The whole Socialist Nation will suffer together, those not suffering will be imprisoned.
Farmers must be eating great.
Come on! You know that the first thing a socialist government does is take the food supply. Those farmers work hard growing those crops and the government comes along and confiscates them. For "The People", you understand.
13 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine. 14 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.15 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.16 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.17 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.18 When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.21 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
Repeal and Replace...? I'd rather they Repeal and Forget! I'd much rather cut out Insurance altogether, and just pay the Doctor DIRECTLY - it'd be cheaper, he/she would earn more money & I'd get better care. Insurance (or government) sticking themselves between me and my doctor....? We're both going BROKE.ObamaCare is about CONTROL. It's not about Doctors or your health.
