if i were... a government

... and i had underground and above ground storage...

... and i was planning a "starvation" event...

... i might - stockpile for my own favored groups

... those other groups, well, they are the intended victims

i say this because i already saw my state stockpiling goods at the start of coronavirus - what reason do i have to think that they stopped doing that

Roman legions had more pigs than cavalry horses and more pounds of grain for those animals alone than all other equipment combined.

Mmmm yeah. An army runs on its stomach. Specifically bacon and baby back ribs.

They did a test run on this with lumber

Sylvester1212 21 points ago +21 / -0

Exactly!!!! Friends in Oregon said the lumberyards and sawmills were full when the prices skyrocketed.

Let's not forget the riots. When you destroy $3,000,000,000 worth of property, there's going to need to be some rebuilding done. That and what did all the businesses do when they suspected there would be another riot? They boarded up their shops with flooring planel covered frames made from 2x4s.

Unless you’re the one being shut down .

Same in Idaho. Logging trucks never stopped.

This is how they jacked up meat, poultry and fish prices. Processors intentionally slowed down and now have monopoly-like profit margins while ranchers are getting hosed.

Interesting...any sources on this?

SnowflakeJuice 9 points ago +10 / -1

Yeah, his ass. I love this website, but hate when people randomly post stuff without knowing what the hell they are talking about.

Some of the warehouses near the main west coast ports may be near capacity, but there are warehouses all over the country that aren't.

Normally, stuff comes off ships, gets moved immediately to nearby warehouses, then is immediately distributed throughout the country. The whole supply chain is Fcked up right now, so goods aren't moving quick enough from the nearby warehouses to the rest of the country.

Containers being unloaded now, should have been unloaded a month ago.

Nah, man.

As a guy who has to track down various raw materials and industrial products, as a guy who regularly talks to reps at the factories that make this shit, and who regularly converses with others who do this work, I can tell you that there are VERY REAL shortages in MANY raw materials and basic industrial commodities.

I fully appreciate your skepticism toward the "official narrative". That skepticism is healthy as hell.

But, I can tell you, in this case, they are massively UNDERSTATING the degree of this crisis.

We are fucked, in the very near future, unless there is a sudden and drastic return to sanity, which looks less likely with every passing week.

Buy your food storage. Have your water treatment strategies worked out. Know how you will stay warm through the winter if the power and gas go out.

I know I'm just some dude on the internet, but this information could save your life, and that of your family.

There also is no labor shortage.

SnowflakeJuice 5 points ago +5 / -0

The warehouses near the ports are near capacity, but that is just a very small percentage of national storage capacity.

In normal times, containers go from the ports to nearby warehouses, then, they are moved, often as quickly as the next day, to warehouses throughout the country.

The shit getting off-loaded now, is at least a month late. I got my seasonal summer products in at the end of the summer. This means the supply chain cannot be re-active like it usually is.

There maybe a shortage of processed foods and toilet paper sitting out in the ocean, while a container of lawn mowers is being off-loaded at the port. So while some warehouses maybe full of goods, they aren't necessarily full of goods that are currently in demand

Thanks to JIT supply chain policies...

It sounds great until the supply chain hits the slightest snag...

Then "Just In Time" turns in to "A Day Late and a Dollar Short".

UpTrumps4545 5 points ago +5 / -0

Who is driving this narrative and why? I went out to a few stores and literally everything is in stock but the prices keep going up on certain products. The only thing that's hard to find are certain sea foods and gatorade for some reason.

ceremony_ 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's so hard to figure out what the right narrative is.

"Inflation because of printing money."

"Inflation because American energy shut down."

"Inflation because ships can't unload."

"Inflation because trucks being prevented from picking up containers."

"Inflation because worldwide supply chains broken."

"Inflation because lot of people forced to quit their jobs over mandates."

"Inflation because goods are being stockpiled in warehouses."

Which one of these narratives is correct??

Star_Commander 4 points ago +4 / -0

You are in fact wrong. This is all about CA AB5. We are being fooled, but you are looking in the wrong spot.

ca18det 4 points ago +5 / -1

There is the "no trucks older than 3 years" law in CA. Not saying they also aren't stockpiling for themselves but it's very obviously orchestrated under the auspices of Climate Change laws. Plandemic giving way from medical tyranny to climate change eco-tyranny was confirmed by a producer in a Project Veritas video and we can now see it playing out openly.

CmonPeopleGetReal 6 points ago +6 / -0

Yes there is, and it's 11 years old

Anything commercial older than 2011 has to have a 2011 or newer motor installed. With DEF systems

BTW tons of great deals to be had buying any diesel truck from CA right now. They cannot be reregistered as of this year. Think about all the fleet vehicles.

Fourtyandfourtyfive 7 points ago +7 / -0

Diesel Exhaust systems use a fluid to make deadly exhaust into unicorn burps.

It’s 60% distilled water and the other is...cow piss

No shit. Uric acid is gonna save the polar bears.

Do you ever feel like a giant practical joke is being played on the entire country??

This is dumb. Containers don't need warehouses.

N Idaho has few masks and full shelves. Ten miles away in Washington you see the opposite. The closer you get to the coast the worse it gets.

Get ready to be a player in a huge real life game. It's called "blame every fucking thing in this universe for inflation, other than governments and the central banks"

GrayManNumber333 2 points ago +2 / -0

If they mention a possible shortage, there is no shortage.

Striganos 2 points ago +2 / -0

I work for sprouts and for over 2 months we have not had toilet paper or any paper products to sell. Last week we got a case of each in so I put them out. The next day got an email not to put them out that the warehouse sent them in error. So you may be right. They admitted they have it but will not send it to my store.

ZeroG1515 1 point ago +1 / -0

This is contrary to the common narrative. Emission standards, increased demand (due to the printing of monopoly money. $14k per person federal debt for those nice 1000$ checks they gave the peasants), driver shortages, vaccine requirements, government still paying people to stay home.. it's complex but it is all the government's fault

HunterSthompson 1 point ago +1 / -0

As a regional truck driver here in the Midwest I can tell you for a fact the warehouses are empty for the most part.

On the coast where the ships are being unloaded they are overflowing but for most of the country they are no more than half full.

ARfreedom 0 points ago +1 / -1

A lot of what is missing on the shelves near me is perishable food. That shit won't sit on shelves for long and definitely not worth the extra cost of storage and lost sales.

Trump2024 0 points ago +1 / -1

I don't believe your assertion in the slightest. There are hundreds of trucks lined up to take the cargo away. Warehouse space isn't needed to get from LA to Kansas city.
