The shortages are coming from two major issues;

  1. You're right, covid didn't create a shortage of resources - the democrats did, when they shut down all "non-essential" businesses and feared everyone into their caves.

  2. They established moratoriums on rent, evictions, student loans, etc. and then started cutting massive unemployment checks to everyone sitting at home with nothing to do.

Most people aren't smart enough to save that money - they'd rather blow it on a new xbox, TV, computer, phone, etc. Especially when they know that they don't have to pay rent, more checks are coming, and they'll be confined to their homes for an extended period of time.

So when you give irresponsible people no right to work, no obligation to pay bills, and no motivation to do anything productive, then start cutting them huge checks for sitting on their asses staring at the TV all day, they tend to spend it on anything and everything that you might also be looking to buy - all while the manufacturers of such goods were shut down for being "non-essential."

And my "essential" ass was still working the whole time, paying even greater taxes because of the handouts and Xiden's socialist wishlist.

And now want me to feel bad that they didn't spend some of that Covid Cash on getting caught up on their rent, which they haven't had to pay in a year plus.......

You know, we rag on him a lot because he never gets off the fence, but one thing Tim Pool says is spot on:

If the government is paying me $15/hr to sit at home and watch TV, and Walmart is offering me $16/hr to stock shelves, then Walmart is only offering me $1/hr to WORK, when I can just sit home and keep watching TV.

At first glance, it seems like the obvious thing to do would be for Walmart to increase wages. But that's nonsense, because it'll SEVERELY increase our already busting inflation rate. Fuckin socialists are destroying America in record t time.

There's a 3rd reason for shortages: hoarding

Let's see, you shut down everything, then hand out bushel loads of money to the masses who then promptly try to spend it on goods and services, before the supply chains around the world have recovered.

Perfect storm for inflation, supply chain meltdown, shipping meltdown, etc....

Too many dollars chasing too few goods and services. The Democrat's economic policies have created inflation.
