Grocery store shelves aren't going back to normal this year


Many of the country's biggest food makers are telling grocers that they will have limited quantities of a number of their products, including items such as Rice Krispies Treats, Sour Patch Kids, some Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors, McCormick gourmet spices and Marie Callender's pot pies because of labor, commodity and transportation constraints throttling supply chains, according to emails viewed by CNN and interviews with grocers. Some suppliers are also telling grocers to cancel their promotions of these items and more over the holidays so products won't disappear from store shelves as quickly.

These latest limits mean that stores won't have all things for all customers heading into the holidays, and shoppers may not be able to find some of their favorite products, flavors or niche items. But shoppers will still have plenty of options, including most of these companies' core products, which they are prioritizing over items in less demand — meaning, for instance, that if you're a fan of Ben & Jerry's popular Phish Food, you shouldn't have a problem, but the company's less-well known Cold Brew Caramel Latte might be harder to find.

For Consumers, 'Build Back Better' Is Going to Start Getting Replaced by These Three Words Soon


CNBC had a lengthy post about Shipt—a shopper/delivery service owned by Target that's exploded since the COVID pandemic. The article was about the service and how it's handling the "out of stock" crisis in our grocery stores. Those are the three words that are going to replace "build back better" and the ones that describe the Biden agenda for consumers as inflation and supply chains tighten. Right now, there might not be items readily available come Christmas time (via Reuters):
White House officials, scrambling to relieve global supply bottlenecks choking U.S. ports, highways and railways, warn that Americans may face higher prices and some empty shelves this Christmas season.
The supply crisis, driven in part by the global COVID-19 pandemic, not only threatens to dampen U.S. spending at a critical time, it also poses a political risk for President Joe Biden.
The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows the economy continues to be the most important issue for Democrats and Republicans alike.
The White House has been trying to tackle inflation-inducing supply bottlenecks of everything from meat to semiconductors, and formed a task force in June that meets weekly and named a "bottleneck" czar to push private-sector companies to ease snarls.
[…]
American consumers, unused to empty store shelves, may need to be flexible and patient, White House officials said.

Just sneakin' around....
The answer seems pretty simple. The 'shots' do not prevent getting or transmitting the virus, and seem to actually increase the rate of infection, so getting the shot is for perceived personal protection and peace of mind only. It's not protecting anyone else. Remove the mandates for the shots. The ports and truckers are then left to their own choice and if they don't want the shot, who is it affecting besides themselves? Ports open, truckers trucking, supplies being delivered.

Am I off base here?

Went to my fertilizer/chemical/seed dealer this morning. They told me fertilizer prices have almost doubled since the spring. What was $425/ton in May is now $840/ton. Glyphosate (Roundup) can not be purchased in bulk (30+ gallon containers) and no supplier will make commitments for spring delivery. I can get 2.5gal jugs of glyphosate now at double the price but even that is limited. We better hope things improve by the spring as far as Ag inputs go. If not you ain’t seen nothing yet when it comes to supply and prices at the grocery store. Let’s go Brandon!

White House Reportedly Asks Energy Companies to Lower Prices


The White House has asked energy companies to help lower fuel prices amid a worldwide rise in energy costs, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
Oil and gas companies have spoken with the White House in the preceding days regarding the request, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. One of those sources said the Biden administration has been internally discussing ways to lower fuel costs.
“We are closely monitoring the cost of oil and the cost of gas Americans are paying at the pump,” a White House official said in a comment. “And we are using every tool at our disposal to address anti-competitive practices in U.S. and global energy markets to ensure reliable and stable energy markets.”
However, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said she was “not aware” of reported discussions between energy companies and the White House.

Biden Begs Industry He’s Pledged To Destroy To Rescue Nation From Looming Energy Crisis


“We would be happy to increase our production, but this administration is doing everything in its power to run us out of business,” Kathleen Sgamma, president of the Denver-based industry trade group Western Energy Alliance, told The Federalist. “I think if they stop manipulation markets the problem would be solved.”

Sgamma emphasized that the restriction of capital has become one of the greatest obstacles to ramping up operations.

“We can’t get capital because they’re putting so much pressure on banks not to lend to us in the name of climate change,” Sgamma said.

Even if the U.S. were to reach net-zero emissions, a primary target of Biden’s by 2050, it would post a minimal effect on global temperatures.

“If the whole country went carbon-neutral tomorrow, the standards United Nations climate model shows the difference by the end of the century would be a barely noticeable reduction in temperature of 0.3 degree Fahrenheit,” reported Copenhagen Consensus President Bjorn Lomborg in The Wall Street Journal. Lomborg citied high-emissions from India, Africa, and China, the last of which is the largest contributor of greenhouse gases on the planet.

Instead, the White House has shopped overseas, begging foreign adversaries to raise oil output to solve an energy crisis on the horizon as Biden actively suppresses production at home.

The Left’s Favorite Labor Shortage Theory Undermines Some Of Their Own Favorite Causes


In this week’s edition of “How Mentally Slow Leftists Undermine Themselves Without Even Knowing It…”

There’s a popular theory on the left for why frustrating labor shortages persist, even after those sweet federal COVID unemployment benefits have dried up. Here’s how Paul Krugman of The New York Times put it Thursday:

Well, it’s only speculation, but it seems quite possible that the pandemic, by upending many Americans’ lives, also caused some of them to reconsider their life choices. Not everyone can afford to quit a hated job, but a significant number of workers seem ready to accept the risk of trying something different — retiring earlier despite the monetary cost, looking for a less unpleasant job in a different industry, and so on.
People like Krugman believe the labor shortages are actually a good thing (he literally writes in that same piece, “Overall, it’s a good thing”) because they represent a sense of would-be workers being fed up with having been treated and paid poorly by employers, particularly in the service and hospitality industries.

“Long-suffering American workers, who have been underpaid and overworked for years, may have hit their breaking point,” wrote Krugman, who once claimed that child pornography ended up on his computer by no fault of his own.

This is a world wide problem, and BIDEN STARTED IT.
I am surprised other countries are not on the warpath against this lump of scat that is playing the part of our President.

Things were going along pretty good with trump as Presidents. We had plenty of gas, the price wasn't so outrageous. We had practically stopped the illegals and China was not flexing their muscles. But the Democrats wanted POWER, and they got it by plotting a coup. Now look at the mess we are in.

I am placing a lot of hope on 2022, that at least we will be rid of Pelosi as Speaker and Republicans can at least slow the flood of bad news created by the scat Lump in the White House, but Democrat Americans appear to be clueless.

Question: Why are you using glyphosate, a known carcinogen that con also be uptaken into any food plant? Aren't there other farming methods that can be utilized? How did the farmers of the past, say just 60-70 years ago, conduct their successful farming operations?

They can take every flavor of Ben & Jerry's and shove them up the liberals Ben & Jerry's ass as far as I am concerned.
Well, they are part of the zionist club. They are conducting a physiological operation. Pretending to be for Palestinians, or against Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, just to muddy the waters. Remember Mossad's/Israel's motto," By way of deception thou shalt make war."

Why not? Unless you bathe in it, it doesn't cause cancer, no matter what a jury of "your peers" "feels".

Just ask'in and say'in. And since it is everywhere, and in nearly everything we eat, and isn't a natural part of nature, and a man made chemical, I reckon it doesn't really matter, does it? Some of us get lucky not getting sick from it, and some of us don't.
