Socialism: Venezuelans So Poor They’re Giving Away Their Children

Funny how under socialism, the poor and non-apparatchiks suffer the most, just like the black communities and have suffered the most under the Obama economy, where unemployment has risen the most.

From Reuters:

Struggling to feed herself and her seven children, Venezuelan mother Zulay Pulgar asked a neighbor in October to take over care of her six-year-old daughter, a victim of a pummeling economic crisis.

The family lives on Pulgar’s father’s pension, worth $6 a month at the black market rate, in a country where prices for many basic goods are surpassing those in the United States.

“It’s better that she has another family than go into prostitution, drugs or die of hunger,” the 43-year-old unemployed mother said, sitting outside her dilapidated home with her five-year-old son, father and unemployed husband.
