Local citizen reports: Shelves are bare at Naval Air Station

Maps and signs help us navigate and avoid danger. As a society, do we still have that ability to recognize signs that something is not right?
Pulling into a gas station or standing in the checkout line at the grocery store have become anxiety inducing interactions. High prices are not the only sign that something is not right.
A recent trip to the commissary at Naval Air Station Jacksonville presented another sign that something is definitely not right. Never has an entire freezer in the frozen food section been empty, and shelves completely bare. 
What is happening? Food prices out of control, gas prices out of control, now food shortages. History is a teacher, and Venezuela is an excellent example of what we do not want to become.
Venezuela, a once prosperous and free nation has become a nation in despair under socialism. The Chavez, in 1999, government promised the people fair wages, affordable housing, affordable health care, and education. Also, promised that corporations would pay their fair share.
It has been two decades since those promises were made to the people of Venezuela.
Today, they live in fear in the streets, and search garbage dumps for food. Their currency is worthless, and the inflation rate is just over 200%. Government policies destroyed the Venezuelan economy, businesses, and the lives of it’s citizens.
Our government is spending more on a myriad of social programs, is hostile to the fossil fuel industry, and has burdened businesses with costly regulations. The inflation rate has increased 7.2% since this administration took office, driving prices up, and making our hard earned dollar worth less.
We are looking more and more like what began in Venezuela approximately 20 years ago. Take a look at the time line of their descent into despair and fear. https://reut.rs/3HkaUed After reading this, ask yourself, “Is it too late for us?” “Can we stop America from becoming Venezuela?”

Researcher and Writer Debbie a native of New York became a resident of Jacksonville via the U.S. Navy. After separating from the navy she worked for both Grumman Aerospace and later Northrup-Grumman Aerospace. After almost 20 years in the aviation industry, she went back to college to change professions. Going back to school as an adult that had lived all over the United States and abroad she had experience in culture and circumstance, which created an incongruity with the material being taught. At that point she began questioning the validity of the material and made the observation that to pass her courses she had to agree, at least on paper, with the material. She graduated about the same time as the Wall Street crash of 2008 and jobs were now difficult to find. So, with time on her hand she began to look into other areas to see if the incongruity existed outside of the college curriculum as well. This is where her mission for the truth began. Since then she has worked to get facts out to the public.
