venezuela cake

In George Orwell’s 1945 book, Animal Farm, the pigs who controlled the government proclaimed:

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

A book probably unknown to the naïve fools who cried for Bernie Sanders.

Via Twitchy.

As Venezuelans starve and grocery store shelves stand bare, its government has spent tens of thousands of dollars to bake a massive cake for the birthday of dead dictator Hugo Chavez, according to Venezuelan press.

La Patilla, a popular news website in the country that often writes in opposition to the socialist government, is reporting the more than 200-pound cake is built as an “architectural replica” of Chavez’s mausoleum.

Socialism, the ideology of equality? Nope.

Indeed, it seems the ruling elite was able to get access to obscene quantities of ingredients, which the news website estimates altogether cost more than $65,000 or 650,000 Bolivars (the Venezuelan currency).

La Patilla reports the cake was made from 720 eggs, 44 gallons of milk, 50 pounds of butter, 200 pounds of flour and 200 more pounds of sugar….

    8 years ago, the book that rang true was Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.” Today, as the world burns, the tome to cite is Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” Not a bad flick either.
