March 1 (Bloomberg) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez sought to tighten his grip on South America’s third- largest economy as he ordered National Guard troops to seize rice-processing mills for allegedly failing to observe government price controls.

“Some companies are refusing to follow the government’s rules,” Chavez said yesterday on state television. “I’ve ordered the intervention in those industries to protect the people, not the bourgeoisie.”

Ahhh, the joys of socialism. If it wasn't happening here, it would be fun to sit back and watch Venezula implode.
