Popular joke in East Germany:
"What would happen if the desert became communist? Nothing for a while, and then there would be a sand shortage."
Latest developments out of socialist Venezuela:
Oil-rich Venezuela ushered in 2010 with new measures rationing electricity use in malls, businesses and billboards, as Hugo Chavez's government aimed to save power amid a crippling drought.

The new regulations came into effect January 1, with businesses required to comply with reduced consumption limits and authorities warning of forced power cuts and rate hikes if the measures are not followed.
Utterly predictable.
