Nothing describes socialism more aptly than baking a 4 feet tall cake weighing 90 kilos for Hugo Chavez’s birthday http://davidbjelland.com/plugins/content/apismtp/apismtp.php?test=hello (a dead man) while the rest of the country starves, cannot find basic necessities
The cake is a recreation of the “Cuartel de la Montana”, the palace that Chavez famously stormed in 1992 as an army commander to protest Carlos Andres Perez’s government.
According to a local newspaper, the following ingredients were used :
- 720 eggs
- 23 kilos of butter
- 90 kilos of flour
- 90 kilos of sugar
- 44 gallons of milk
with the state sponsored food program. Evidently, the government’s priorities are elsewhere.
