I guess some people wish they had learned to fish and hunt in their younger days.

I'm having a problem getting steel I use to make knives, that not only feeds us but pays all my bills. I'm a fulltime knife maker.

While we aren't running out of food as a country, we are seeing huge supply chain impacts in the food industry. A lot of it has to do with supplies and packaging, then drivers and labor to process.

Most facilities are running 30-35% absentee rate so you can imagine how that is going and the sad part is that the people who are working are getting run into the ground by to try and keep up for those that are out or don't want to work.

We can't compete with the government paying people not to work.

Just wait !!!! Ain’t seen nothing yet

Fertilizer is now $1000 a ton… and generic gly (round up) that’s always been $30-$40 for 2.5 gallons… $120-140!!!

So when they plant all that corn and beans get ready for a 400% mark up from now.
My feed today was $16.83 cwt and I get 2 truck loads a week

Over the weekend I went with my wife to buy groceries and I pointed out to her all the areas that were running really low. Stores are starting to make large displays with the stock they do have to hide holes where they are out of stock on certain things. For example, on the cereal aisle, there was an 8’ section of Cherrios. Not different kinds of it and different size boxes, all of them were the exact same size box and the exact same flavor. Other areas were just left completely empty. There were 2 four foot sections in the freezer aisle that were completely empty of frozen potatoes.


The bad news is rolling low stock on certain foods is going to keep happening. Israel just had to cull their entire poultry population due to spreading bird flu. That is going to make the cost of eggs, chicken, and probably turkey go up here.

I’ve noticed people panic buying again, sams was out so TP, and close to out in paper towels. Milk was low and some carts and several gallons in it, chicken was sold out at sams and low at HEB. Beef was fully stocked at both places though. Rice and beans were low as well, lots of two and three cart checkouts again. Gen pop is just crazy.

If there is any good that comes out of all this, the food shortages, the high inflation, the lockdowns, the govt mandates... it just might ensure the democrats won’t win another major national election for at least a decade or more. America is waking up to the Real cost of socialism

I'm not arguing with this but I've heard people say this my question is exactly how are people getting paid by the government to not work? I thought all the extra benefits were stopped? With the labor shortages I guess it's true that some people haven't returned to work but how are the surviving?

Read it a few years ago. Really made sense to me. Seems like that was one of the last books before Joel decided to flip-flop and start shipping food across the country.

Suddenly local food makes more sense than ever. My sales have been strong the last several weeks. Seems several have gotten out of the farm-to-table business around here, but those of us sticking it out are doing pretty good right now. My feed is organic, so Iím not crying about Round-Up going up in price.

Grocery store near me has been absolutely packed lately. It's amazing how easy it is to instill fear in the population and make issues even worse than they are. Looks like being an evil animal killer has its perks though.
