Food shortages......

Post by jltrent » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:04 am

If people go as crazy if food becomes short as they have toilet paper these stores will be wiped clean. THis could become serious in a hurry.........I am not trying to scare anybody, but if you need something bad don't put it off.

Countries are starting to hoard food, threatening global trade

Ahh the truth hits home. Will people finally realize there is value to a bunch of low IQ farmers? Will they also realize that there are very few countries in this world that are capable of feeding their populations from within their borders? We are very lucky to be living in one. I don’t think many of the people here realize this but I promise you the leaders of the countries that can’t do. The 2nd amendment and bio security are way more important than most realize. Contrary to what a millennial will tell you, you can survive without an I phone and the internet food however is not optional. Oh and grub hub doesn’t work when there is no food before I get the but I can order food on my phone argument I usually get.

Coffee is going to be the next 'toilet paper'.... Dunno why.

Talked to my son over south of Seattle. He said a roofer he knows stopped in at the shop to ask if any of them knew where he could get meat. Said he had been to 7 stores and there was no meat at any of them.
