I am not exaggerating by saying ‘if you want to get a good look of what socialism would look like in the United States of America go grocery shopping right now’. Shelves in some departments are bare and in others dwindling down to be bare soon. Bernie Sander’s America.
I went to our local supermarket to pick up a few things this morning, early, 6:30 AM. They have a window for people 60+ and those with health issues to shop from 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM so we can get to their newly stocked shelves before the rest of the younger and healthier population further drain them. LOL! That was a pathetic sad laugh.
I picked up a gallon of “no fat organic milk” for nearly $7.00. It was one of the remaining milk items left, one of three. I was kind, I left the other two for someone else. Hope they like no fat organic milk. I normally get 1-2 % fat free milk. Here is what is more remarkable, they had absolutely no ground beef, no ground chuck, a few port chops, of which they now have less. The fish, gone! I did pick up some frozen fillets, one of 4 pkgs. left. Again, I was thinking of leaving some for my fellow citizens. If they are stocking the shelves between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM, I’d hate to see what the shelves look like by mid afternoon.
On paper products like toilet paper, facial tissue and now even paper towels……..GONE. Nothing in sight, that at 6:30 AM this morning. There was no sign there were any of these items on the shelves at even 6:00 AM sharp.
Looks like they did restock with Bunny Bread! All other brands………gone! I was able to pick up some hot dog buns for the beer brats I bought (about 10 pkgs left of the brats).
So, the grocery stores and their vendors should be doing well right now. There were signs hanging from the shelves that read, “if you don’t see it, we ran out and are working with our vendors to restock”. That will also be a slow process, as I am sure there is a big run on the vendors from everywhere. Actually, this could be a great time for less popular brand names to pick up the slack. Some of these salesmen should be pounding doors right now. “We can get it to you tomorrow!!!”
Now is a good place to mention my point of all the above. If you had no idea what socialism looked like before, go out and see it now. Oh, that is only if you can go out. Hopefully you haven’t had a curfew placed on you yet. Empty shelves in grocery stores, a common everyday thingy (as liberal Joe Biden would say) in places like Venezuela. Just for one. I am serious folks, this major midwest/Missour grocery chain I visited this morning had about 20% of their shelves empty. Most edible items are going fast. The paper products are gone. What are on the shelves are items you probably don’t really need to survive or have a lot of at home anyway. Things that you don’t run out of that quickly.
Government is imposing rules (temporary rules I know) on how we socialize, whereto and in numbers. Some people in government want to “NATIONALIZE” some manufacturing industries. That is about control….period!
I get it, drastic action needed to be taken in order to deal with the coronavirus. I would however, argue all day and night it isn’t that much different than what we have dealt with in the past, without this hysteria and panic.
Government(s), and this is not just in the U.S. it is global, are learning just how quickly they can take control of our daily lives, with the assistance or you can even say excuse of a pandemic. They always think they know what is best for us. When do they run this drill again, when there is no virus? Right now, (and I said its to control the virus), they shut us down. No socializing in groups of 50+, in some cases 10+, shut down dining in, schools are closed, bars are closed, food supplies and essentials are dramatically down…….and towns/cities are looking like ghost towns. They are even talking about bringing in National Guard in some areas…….oh and lets not forget some communities have banned the sale of guns. OF COURSE, take advantage while they can! Control, socialism a little bit at a time, hidden in this pandemic exercise we are going through, or not so hidden. How much from this temporary experience will remain when it is said and done?
I understand the virus is real……but this isn’t just about a virus! Go ahead, I can hear it, he’s a conspiracy freak. Quite frankly I am way beyond that……it doesn’t bother me.
This coronavirus (COVID-19) started in China. Do you think China is concerned about losing a few thousand people? NO! So, they could care less about anyone outside of China. Their only interest in the United States is and always has been THEIR UNFAIR TRADE ADVANTAGE. China has always wanted to have a thumb down on us. Keep us somewhat dependent on them. The medicine products and resources to produce medicine is a weapon to use against us. We are dependent on China for much of our meds. That to me is ridiculous. We have pharmaceutical companies, and they should be capable of producing EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING we need. You think we don’t have medical researchers, which includes pharmaceuticals? I’ve gotten off track here, so back on track: John Hopkins, Bill Gates and Mrs Gates (and I believe little George Soros was involved) had this 201 event in NYC. The event was about the ‘coronavirus’. This event occurred 6 weeks before the coronavirus broke out in China. Of course that timeline could be off as far as when it broke out in China, as we are learning China lied about it. So was probably a bit sooner than that. Regardless, Gates is probably also working on the vaccine………conveniently. This to is about $$$$$$$ ! Globalism plays a part in this, I will bet my life on it. What I am saying, it is hard to believe (for me anyway), that all we are going through is coincidental!
This is a test, a test of the American Broadcast System………… if this were a real emergency……
Will it is an emergency, it looks man made!
So, go look, and tell me what you see…….. it isn’t the America our forefathers and fathers and grandfathers, brothers and sisters fought for and they would not recognize today. THIS BETTER BE TEMPORARY!
