#1 Government rationing of goods and essential services will soon become vital. We are essentially at war with China the pandemic. Moving to Florida should no longer be an option. You must do your part. Get the JAB. Mask up and shut up.

#2 Having to politely wait-on 100 to 300+ people crammed in a poorly ventilated cabin, during a Pandemic for hours. Then deal with the Type "A's" acting like its a turf war demand better. Then add NOT knowing what the "Latest" official fact or fiction regarding anything Covid19/21D? related is.

Hell I'd walk off too.

#3 I'll bet many, that have lived and survived thru the various US Gasoline, natural Gas, Medical Doctor, medicine, Ammo and food shortages over the last 40+ years. Are suitably stocked for the next 18 to 24 months.

WHY?
Because likely you grew up learning to adapt and wasn't fed hand-n-foot and pampered. eg. If you were military brat you lived on Frozen Milk and bread thawed as needed.

What I see as the future sufferers are the ones that did not look 2 years down the road when the C-19 started.

Those that didn't bother to think about the plants closed or shutdown due to lack of workers to produce basic items like FOOD not masks and hand cleaners. eg. Bacon

So likely they did not imagine stockpiles/Inventories would be seriously depleted or even sold to the highest bidder
eg. China and USA Hogs in 2020-2021.

So they did not see the likely upcoming 2021-2020+ spot Shortages.

BTW: Next time anyone is in the Super Market, start looking at the BEST BY DATES. Too many canned items are now running barely at 1 year. Where before we were seeing canned items running 18 to 24+ months.

Also note: the growing empty shelves ... yes even in Wally World food isles. eg... Rice shelves are partially stocked at best and usually sold out of brands like "Water-Maid" or 25% to 30% higher prices.

#4 I see it in our stores NN2N1. The supply chain is horribly disrupted and if they start another lockdown it will crumble completely.

#5 start looking at the BEST BY DATES

The expiration date on your bottled water is about the decomposition of the bottle not the water. Got to save the planet don't you know.

#6 And worker layoffs combined with a Dim sponsored massive influx of foreign workers look forward to a shit show like never seen before.
