Forcing people to do stuff without telling the real reason why.

Why are they making the coast unbearable to live. Forcing people to move inland.

People are stupid beast. And are being herded. I guess it can be said to be for their own good. But This is not the way I would go about it.

I believe a big part of the problem is the containers that food is packaged in come from China. Even if the food itself is manufactured in the USA.

Yogurt, for example. Its made in the USA. But without those plastic cups with pull-off foil lids from China, its not going to be on supermarket shelves.

What the hell is going on?

Are they redirecting our food supply somewhere else?

Is it really a worker shortage?

Is it a distribution issue?

Is this intentional?

Why is the price of what IS available pretty much double what it was 2 years ago?

I feel like somebody is fucking with us....

The transportation secretary buttigieg said the supply problems will continue until everyone is vaccinated.

He said that publicly then went on a 3 month vacation.

My local Kroger here near Atlanta has pretty much stayed well stocked throughout the pandemic but last night when I went shopping everything was scarce . They still had a lot of stuff but the shelves were definitely low in almost every item.

It was weird .

The labor and delivery unit where I had my newborn said I wasn’t allowed to breastfeed, because their covid policy says only 1 visit per day and then the visitor(me) has to leave. Stand up and end all insane covid restrictions!! Separating parents from babies for covid is wrong.

Young folks think that people who go to supermarkets and prepare their own food are poor.

If you have Gatorade or cream cheese stockpiled keep it quiet or the military will come for it.
