....then they came for our fillet-o-fish...

If the artificial and intentional supply chain shortages and hyperinflation with the price of beef wasn't enough to excite you,  now we have this:

"Customs dispute jeopardizes US fish stick, filet supply.

America's consumerist economy and dependency on the "global supply chain" is nothing new... but the facts they aren't telling you about include the pressures on supply that are occurring worldwide, as the consumerist economy expands to include everywhere. Especially China. Chinese demand for previously "American" style food and products are exploding. Nobody protected the American consumer from the burgeoning Chinese demand. Nobody stopped China from buying our largest pork producer. These are American farms shipping our pork to China. Canadians ship their timber to China. It's not us right now, it's them, because our population and its character remains unchanged. We are in no position to criticize them, however, because the over-commercialization, over-development and wasteful demand for perpetual plenty is an American trademark more than anywhere else. Unfortunately, the system is drugged up on monetary meth-driven growth at any cost. Even when it tries to retract, our government refuses to let that happen, juicing the corporations with trillions of new stimulus. The whole condition is perverse, if you ask me, and only serves to harm the planet and reinforce the population's dependency on the corporations and international banks. Conservatives used to applaud retraction and sense opportunity in it. Now, they whine like babies without lollipops. This is an indication that the victory of materialism and reductionism is complete.

Started to notice a few items issuing on the shelves today at the higher price place.  The self checkout were all see the cashier.  Fine I’ll go through the traditional line.  Maybe they’re trying to subtlely pull another coin shortage?

Chuckle I know how to fish and surrounded by lakes.

I've caught two 5 pound bass fish, decades ago, by just playing around the lure in the water. The random movement makes the lure look injured.

Contrary to the long winded pro-socialist post a few posts up...the supply chain is being broke on purpose.

It has NOTHING to do with our ability to make, raise, create, grow or supply products or food...and EVERYTHING to do with fkg globalists playing politics.


There are ships in the harbors behind denied docking due to politicians that WANT us to suffer so they can blame global warming or over population.

It is ALL BULLSHIT and those that defend these psychotic upper elite socialist fks will not be forgotten or forgiven for covering their crimes against humanity!

Hell, the biggest pork producer in the country is owned by a Chinese parent company. (Smithfield Farms)
Almost ALL of the higher grade patio equipment that is sold here is made in Vietnam. ALL of our microprocessors are made in Hong Kong or Taiwan. Tyson is 25% owned by Chinese investors, GE is Chinese owned now
Check out this list:

Cosco is one of, if not THE biggest shipping container companies in the world. China. Hard to ship things if China stops sending empty containers.
Yeah, the US definitely has sold its soul to the devil in the name of international trade. I realize trade is essential, but we ship more pork and soybeans to China than anywhere else and the demand for those products has spiked the prices here. Etc.

Was being a little facetious, but you get the point.  Another supply chain disruption that is not due to anything but an intentional act.
