There is no doubt that shortages are occurring more often in our country. My very elderly mother has an incontinence problem and yesterday I looked online to buy adult underwear to deal with this problem. Products are available but choices and sizes are limited and some deliveries are one month out. Adult diapers! It’s getting pretty damned bad when it’s hard to buy adult diapers in the proper size! I’m also trying to get her private at-home assisted care but agencies are stressed and nothing is available.
My last trip for groceries at Walmart, there was plenty available, but there were still many many brands and varieties that disappeared last winter and are still nowhere to be found.
A while back I read that UPS and FedEx couldn’t get enough trucks for deliveries. Yesterday UPS announced that due to insufficient capacity they would not be accepting packages from 6 major retailers for christmas delivery. Folks, something is seriously wrong and our leaders are NOT working to improve the situation. This is the kind of stuff I witnessed overseas in communist and socialist countries. It’s slowly getting worse and worse and I fear we are rapidly approaching the tipping point.

I don't anticipate it getting better so I am taking that fact into account every time I make a grocery run. I hit a couple of stores last weekend and the usual suspects where missing, TP, paper towels and plates. household cleaning, spam and some canned goods, and the meats were mostly low end cuts. No bacon! The Ho and Joe will only make it worse.

IF, and it’s a big IF, the president invokes the insurrection act, declares martial law, and starts arresting traitors (as suggested by some military patriots) things are going to go from bad to “totally f—ked up” in a heartbeat. Winter is the worst possible time for massive civil unrest to take place.

We're practically under martial law now. And if the gov. makes the vaccine mandatory in order to enter stores and places of work, then this isn't a free country. It's a commie regime. Voting is already as good as you find in some third world banana republic. They were right about the domino theory back in the 60's. Communism does spread like a virus. Pun intended.

I don't mean to start an argument, I'm only curious about your thinking. The government already requires vaccines for children to enter schools. How is it so different to require vaccines to enter stores or the workplace?

Since I've had required vaccines all my life, from school, to travel & to the military, I guess under this thinking, we have been living in a communist country for a LONG time.

I went to the club last night @ 5PM, place was crowded, mask and sanitizing was needed.
The had Bounty paper towels, about 20 pallets of them, limit of two.
I took one just to replace the ones I have used up already.
Almost everyone was grabbing two of them, and happy about it.
Rice, there was plenty of four brands of Jasmin rice, not moving fast, 5 pallets worth, saw none in anyone's cart, pricy too.
Regular plain long grain white was missing from the shelves.
There was low sodium Spam on the shelf, no classic.
Milk Bone treats were down to three boxes from the usual 1-2 hundred of three sizes, grabbed 2, large only.
There was no TP of any brand at all, a lot of other things that went missing in Feb. are still absent.
The coolers were full of chicken, beef ones about half full.

Me too, have had so many different ones I can't count them, made sure I kept close hand on the shot book, would have had to get them all over if lost.

I still get shots to this day, none bother me, flue shot, pneumovax, shingles, at least I don't have to have those out of country ones.
I will get the Covid when available.

If you've never had the plague vaccine shot into your butt you have lived a sheltered life.
I had so much put into my body prior to overseas replacement, at the 6 month point in Vietnam, and again before being allowed back into America that any COVID virus would turn and run upon trying to gain entrance to my body.
