Re: Seriously though, what's with the shortages that have been lasting for years now?
Just got off the phone this am with someone who is trying to buy a new box truck in the Philly PA area.

Told me he has to buy a used one because every dealer (he tried them all) had no new trucks and no new ones coming in until June but all of those are SOLD! They said they would take an order on one but could not say when it would be delivered!

He had no choice but to buy used.

The craziest thing is WHAT is suffering a shortage in your area.

People are seeing different shortage of items in different areas.

It's definitely some implementation of psychological tactics.

A lot of the shortages of manufactured foods have to do with the processing and packaging.

Due to parts not being able to come in from China, or workers not being able to willing to work for whatever reasons ... plants have changed the way they run their lines.

In a food manufacturing plant, there are always X number of lines running Y number of Z variety of products, arranged in such a way that allergans and ingredients don't get mixed up and run on the same line at the same time. Packaging considerations such as labelling, size, intended market come into play, too.

So plant managers have to decide how many lines of Y are going to run, for what market (changes the line configuration), and for how long.

Workers and truckers come in at this point, too.

I think it's not so much a shortage of anything in particular as it is a change in manufacturing practices in order to accommodate all the disruptions to the just-in-time systems caused by the pandemic.

Different lines are being run on different days and distributed differently in an effort to get products out the door.

The varieties and brands shift along with availability, as manufacturers are trying to make it as efficient as possible for them to sell products amid all the disruptions.

Places that manufacture for institutions/venues have had to change to retail and back.

At least that's what has happened at MY work, a manufacturer.

ETA: not to mention there are regulatory requirements.

A plant can't just pivot to meet a need, or get something produced before a truck comes to pick it up. There are labelling changes, nutritional and sizing requirements ... people who have to make those changes ...

Sugar sand, the local name for a type of fine sandy soil found in the Pine Barrens of South Jersey in the U.S. state of New Jersey.

It is a component of traditional baseball rubbing mud, eroded from the Pine Barrens, used by Major League Baseball as an abrasive to condition new baseballs.

What the hell is going on?

Are they redirecting our food supply somewhere else? Yes or freezing it. Japan Mitsubishi did this a decade ago before Fukushima w the yellow fin tuna. It is documented in the movie "The end of the line" watch it.

Toilet paper shortages last year - there are no trees in America or factories that needed money during Rona lockdowns? Put lease. The local Mexican and Korean markets NEVER ran out.

Hyvee I know was paid millions in tax payer dollars to come here. Why? We had cub and rainbow never needed more grocery stores. They were getting government grants from the get.

Now all the other parts of locally sourced Amish chicken, including whole chickens are available but the breasts are not. Why? This has never happened before.


Is it really a worker shortage? No. I read Craigslist everyday. There are LESS jobs available. Nobody would mandate jabs or anything if so and risk losing employees.

Is it a distribution issue? Intentionally

Is this intentional? Ab so f in lutely

Why is the price of what IS available pretty much double what it was 2 years ago? Rent too is shy rocketing, to create two classes Elite and slave and eliminate the middle class.

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

China stockpiling food at historically high levels

China is stockpiling food at historically high levels and now has more than half of the world's maize and other grains. By mid-2022, the country is estimated to hold 69% of the world’s corn reserves, 60% of rice, and 51% of wheat.

The thing is, stuff can’t really make you happy. If you are looking for happiness through material wealth and things, you will fail anyway. So even if this was the plan, it doesn’t matter. No one gets to take a uhaul of their acquired stuff with them when hey die. So I don’t fret over this type of stuff.

Currently at the small rural hospital where I am employed sterile water, normal saline vials, and epinephrine syringes are only available through scalpers, not the normal big wholesalers like McKesson and Cardinal.

We are on limited allocation for numerous essential products including IV bags of saline, morphine and fentanyl.

For years from time to time this has happened temporarily, say a month or two, but this is the worst I remember in the 29 years I've worked here.

We are now reconstituting powder antibiotics by drawing from the bag to be used.

Once bags are unavailable, then what?

I know the wholesalers are under obligation to fulfill government contracts with priority over civilian orders. For years I've thought these shortages were due to preparations by the military for imminent wartime needs.

More lately I've wondered about elites stocking underground bunkers for use while the mushroom clouds clear.
