Venezuelans are marked like cattle to buy food
« on: March 13, 2014, 05:20:02 AM »
Venezuelans have to wait for hours to access supermarkets due to the severe shortage of commodities.

The severe [size=inherit]shortage of food and commodities[/size] suffered Venezuela has led to the emergence of long queues in some supermarkets to buy food. The situation has become so extreme that Venezuelans aremarked with numbers to sort the input to these establishments and prevent people strain.This applies, for example, San Cristobal , Venezuela where llavan several days suffering long waits for access to facilities. Many come to the government of St. Kitts market at two o'clock , six hours before it opens to get a good spot in line and buy the products they need while they last.
At dawn, as hundreds of people gather at the gates of Bicentennial supermarket, all with numbers in green ink on the wrist to avoid discussions of who came first.

Seems reasonable to me. Not sure what the point of this is other than to raise the specter of being treated like cattle. Seems it's ok here though if it's for entrance to the latest night club or service at your local DMV. Scare mongering and nothing more.

JAB...."seems reasonable to me"?????  :(
It's derogatory! Is this what the human race has come to.....practically begging for food because the Haves have drove up inflation? depending on them FOR SURVIVAL? Do you know how easy it would be for them to make food prices reasonable again? click of a few buttons...viola...
The Haves and the Have Nots, folks. This is what this is.
I think standing in line by choice for a beer is a hell of a lot different than getting up at 2am and tugging ones children along a line up, fighting back the tears and utter depression of ones state to look semi strong for your children, in the hope you'll get some soup or something.
Give respect, get respect.

My point was that people line up for many things.... is it better to be 'free' to stand in line then kill one another for a "Black Friday" bargain? I think the idea of having to stand in line for food is a separate issue from the orderly service of customers. I completely agree that it is appalling that food pricing and availability is manipulated for the benefit of the seller. I do believe though that IF that is the reality then it is better to have an orderly method of selling than a free for all where people WILL be injured or worse by allowing the law of the jungle to exist.
