Scene from Atlas Shrugged remembered in Venezuela, "We've begun judicial proceedings against the business leaders of Kellogg's because their exit is unconstitutional"

CARACAS (Reuters) - U.S.-based cereal maker Kellogg Co on Tuesday pulled out of Venezuela due to the country's deep economic crisis, and an angry President Nicolas Maduro said its units would be taken over and given to workers.

Kellogg confirmed later on Tuesday that its manufacturing plant had been seized by the leftist government, the latest company to jump ship amid Venezuela's tough business climate.

"I've decided to hand the company over to the workers so that they can continue producing for the people," Maduro said at a campaign rally ahead of Sunday's [fake] presidential election.

    Since the Kellogg Foundation gave a cool million to the chanting "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" Black Lives Matter, me dino will no longer buy a Kellogg product even though I had been for years opting for the less pricey products competitors had to offer in the first place.
    So Manuro~oops, so woefully sorry am I for that misspelling!~so Maduro took over what Kellogg's left behind and gave it to his workers. Well, woopie woozy doo!
    Me dino would like to know how those oowee so lucky workers are gonna find corn to make Corn Flakes, sugar to make Frosted Flakes, rice to make Rice Krispies, apples to make Apple Jacks, bran to make All-Bran, raisins to make Raisin Bran and wholesale ingredients required to make any other Power To The People! Venezuelan kinda Kelloggie yum-yums,

      Maybe they will make fish gruel. It's arguably more healthy than all the big sellers that Kellogg makes. Haven't used any of the big brekkie products in decades. (Bagels are probably bad for my health, too;^)

        Do believe it was In Oliver Twist that a wealthy visitor to an orphanage viewed what little boys were eating and remarked, "Fish heads! Very nourishing!"
        For losing patience failing to find proof of that quote (haven't had lunch yet), me dino did run into this~

          When I was in Nassau Bahamas I was served a fish with the head. That wasn't a problem, but the fact it had not been scaled before cooking was. Straight to a nearby Dominos Pizza I went after expressing my dissatisfaction with the fish. That was the 2nd disappointment from a local restaurant in Nassau. The first was spent hugging a toilet on a flight to Abaco and the rest of the day in the hotel room toilet after eating at a popular Nassau restaurant. Thanks for the bad conch, guys. Luckily my system quickly rejected it. Some have died from such, I was told.
          When I lived in Honduras I learned that the fish cheeks were the best part, but that was taught by a dive-master from Austin TX.

            Me dino must say I've never been served cooked fish I was expected to scale myself. Or just ignore the scales, whatever.
            My Dad taught me how to scale and gut fish I caught when I was half grown. At about that time, a dirt poor Florida Panhandle redneck guy taught me how to locate earthworm hills and to force them up by pounding a wood stake in the ground and rubbing its top with another stake to produce vibrations.
            Loved the way Mama fried Compass Lake, FL, bream back then.

    This socialist crap was also done in Ukraine against farming by seizing the owners farms and handing them over to “the people.”
    It didn’t work out well. It didn’t work out well at all.
