Spicoli’s Paradise: Ex-Bus Driver Says All Food is Now Government Cheese

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has promised to nationalise food distribution in the South American nation beset with record shortages of basic goods, runaway inflation and an escalating economic crisis.
During a rally on Friday, on International Workers’ Day, the socialist leader allowed a union activist to ask for the nationalisation of food and essential-item distribution.
Various estimates suggest the government already controls about half of the country’s food distribution, but that hasn’t stopped record shortages in shops and markets.
