Triumph of Venezuelan Socialism: 4 Rolls Of Toilet Paper Now Costs Only Half Of Monthly Minimum Wage!

NAIGUATÁ, VENEZUELA — The thin, elderly woman paused at a supermarket display of toilet paper to do a quick calculation. A four-roll package cost 115,204 bolivars, almost half of the country’s new monthly minimum wage.

“Keep believing in the revolution,” she scoffed aloud Wednesday at the store in Naiguatá, a coastal community about an hour’s drive northeast of Caracas, the capital.

Why do I get the nagging feeling this will be Ontario’s reality shortly?
