Unrest over food shortages spreads through the country

I've purposefully not posted anything on Venezuela. It's at the point where doing so seems exploitive.  But, having said that it still is important that we keep in mind what can happen to a country that is mired in debt, smothering government control and rampant corruption.

This....is our future.  This....is the American future.  It's only a matter of time.
"They're hunting. The people are hungry!" says the narrator of the video, who filmed the incident from his car. Lawmaker Paparoni said some 300 animals were believed to have been killed. Reuters could not verify the information.

Zuley Urdaneta, a 50 year-old vet in Merida, witnessed the looting of a truck along the highway around 2 p.m. on Thursday afternoon. About two hours later, he said some 800 people converged on a food collection center and proceeded to plunder it.

"They knocked down the gates and looted flour, rice, cooking oil, cooking gas," said Urdaneta. "The police and the National Guard tried to control the situation by giving out what was left."
Is it too late to stop this from happening here?

Yes, it's too late. All we can do now is to try to prevent it from getting worse.

If you think that government is the answer, it's too late for you.

Where is the answer?

The answer is in you.

Take care of your family.  Take care of your own future.  At this point, that's all you can do.
