Communism Sucks: Beer Edition

From MSNBC:

President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday he is fed up with seeing beer trucks sell alcohol directly on the streets of poor neighborhoods.

“It’s the degeneration of society. It’s one of the causes of public drunkenness in the slums,” he said as he declared he was putting a ban on the beer runs.

“As of today, I want the National Guard to stop the beer trucks and take them to the nearest command post. No more trucks,” he said in a televised speech.


I think the Venezuelan people may be regretting that whole "unfettered power" decision:

The crowd had cheered him enthusiastically earlier in his speech, but his beer decree was met with a lukewarm response and scattered applause.

Chavez assured his audience he was not banning the consumption of alcohol.

    This can't be good for national security.
