There is a lot of self-loathing in the population. This escalates the pain for everyone. However, the self-loathers also tend to be self-destructive and this is where the Agenda falls apart. The regular people, no matter how enlightened they claim to be, will not tolerate their own misery just to sustain the ideology of their idols.

Last time I checked there were 70+ container ships off the coast of Cali. When my son and I were there a couple of months ago there were 25 or so.

How many containers are on one of those ships?


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Had an interesting conversation w some former South Africans a week ago. They have been here about 5 years. We discussed 1994 when Mandela was freed, how the media changed a bomb setting terrorist into a hero. How it would be difficult to find a white male under age 35 in SA today, how the blacks have ruled the country for 30 plus years, it has progressively gotten worse, yet it is still white mans fault.

I asked what he thinks of the situation here, open borders, white man bad, govt tyranny. He was a bit sad and angry, said that is what he fled from to give his kids a chance, opportunity, and now its manifesting here as well. He said gulags, work camps are next here.

I said they are already here. The govt can lock you up in your own home... no shot, no job, no eating out, no travel, no shopping... and they can shut off access to your bank, your broker, all of it. You will be without funds, no way to pay bills... in a virtual gulag. Invisibly screaming while the jackbooted brownshirt nazis scream at the unvaxxed.

Situations like this bring out the worst of human nature. Too many are WAY too happy to use govt instruction as an excuse to exercise their normally somewhat suppressed evil side. The more extreme govt gets, the more evil these people get. Its not about covid, never was. This is just an opportunity to ram a boot where the sun dont shine, and they will always take that advantage.

Newsom in cali outlawed all offroad gas engines... how do tree guys, lawncare companies, others do work? Someone commented that govt is stupid, they dont understand.

Govt exactly knows what they are doing. They know these mandates will crush people financially, healthwise, emotionally. They know that all this covid stuff only devides families, friends, workplaces, churches, communities, countries. That is the whole point. Divide and Conquer. They want divided society. They want people suffering. And they want people to die.

They dont care about you. They wont suffer, will in fact enjoy this. "Some animals are more equal than others"... and these pigs think they can lie, cheat, steal, destroy and murder on a genocidal scale, without consequence.

There are always consequences, but looking at history and having been an observer of human nature and action or lack therof... its gonna get bad.

Make yourself as unreliant on society as possible as you will soon be either a Nazi or a Jew.

I can relay what I am seeing:

The employees requesting exemption are being processed differently based on value to the employer. This is obviously a massive HR mistake, violating the "Treat everyone the same" rule of thumb, second only to "It's better to not have a policy, than to have a policy and not follow it." Stage right: Lawyers.

The company I work for is basically falling back on special designations for "Essential Employees."

And, as those people are disproportionally pale compared to the "Non-Essential" employee population, the R issue is now even more in play.

It's a publicly traded company and it's vale is going to zero. And it's far from the only one.

@Bakerv,

Yep, Ole Uncle Joe has done the equivalent of crapping his diaper and there is literally no one around to change it. And we're all going to suffer from the stench. Where are the extra dock workers going to come from? Has the vax mandate exacerbated this situation? Do the clowns he appointed (Buttigieg, etc.) have any idea how complex supply chains operate? Have there been ANY studies as to the over all logistics of transporting goods from China to America in an expedited fashion? Given the increase in the price of crude, how does this impact the price of these goods on the average consumer? This is a self imposed train wreck. As Karl has said, nobody works for free. And that includes someone who makes $20 an hour but his COL rises exponentially each month.

No, I don't expect the average dumbsh*t American to figure any of this out. I will enjoy watching the whole thing go***** up by Thanksgiving or perhaps earlier. Long popcorn, long beer!

@Tappedout,

Another thing to keep in mind is the "lucky" workers who are granted their exemption and especially the jabbed who will see their work load double or triple. You will be able to smell the resentment from afar. Already the ire of the general public is being directed at us, the great unjabbed, for pissing in their Cheerios.

This is from a negro who fully enjoys his active role on the Democratic plantation.

An enormous supply disruption is already baked into the cake. Hell, if you haven't seen it already you've not been paying attention. Sure, sometimes things go awry and a specific product you want might not be in stock. Guess what? More and more things are not being produced, and even if they unloaded EVERYTHING right now there wouldn't be enough people throughout the chain to actually get it to the consumers.

And that doesn't even include the items to actually ship those things once the truck drivers delivery the goods to the warehouses. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap and the like just magically appear out of thin air, right?

So, if I have my numbers right:
After Xiden's big corp pow-wow, the Daily Mail says by adding night and weekend shifts, they hope to add 3,500 more boxes / wk through LA *AND* LB Ports.
Considering the avg ships holds 15,000 boxes, between now and Christmas, they might empty 2-3 more ships than the current run rate.
They're showing 142 ships currently in port (62) and anchored offshore (81).
A drop in the bucket........
But, to the numb-skulls, he did SOME thing.
Oh, and they are blaming inflation on the supply backups....hahaha. Just wait dumb****s.
I'm getting price increases about every 8 weeks and delivery times pushed out more, not less, and some items indefinite.

One of the biggest problems I see is that the vaccine narrative was allowed to continue. Once it was proven that the clot shot didn't qualify to be called a vaccine because it doesn't actually do what vaccines have done in history (prevent you from getting and passing on the disease) the word vaccine should have been removed from the narrative by everyone that isn't on board. Allowing the other side to use the word vaccine is a huge mistake, because they can continue to paint everyone objecting as a crazy anti-vaxxer. It's working very well for the maniacs. Just watched that cock bite prick CEO of United this morning, and the whole attitude of these ****ers since the beginning has been and still is: "it's a vaccine, my god what's wrong with these people". It looks like United isn't going to be any help if what he claims is true, that 99.7% of their workforce is already jabbed; so only a few that leave won't make much difference. It just goes on and on and on.

Florida fines county more than $3.5 million for requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID

"If a government agency in the state of Florida forces a vaccine as a condition to employment, that violates Florida law and you will face a $5,000 fine for every single violation,"

Leon County required that all employees be fully vaccinated ... 700 county government employees provided such documentation ... 14 employees were fired for their refusal or failure to do so.

Section 381.00316, Florida Statutes ... vaccine documentation.
(1) A business entity, as defined in s. 768.38 ... may not require patrons or customers to provide any documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery to gain access to, entry upon, or service from the business operations in this state. This subsection does not otherwise restrict businesses from instituting screening protocols ...
(2) A governmental entity as defined in s. 768.38 may not require
persons to provide ... [same as s1]
(3) An educational institution as defined in s. 768.38 may not require
students or residents to provide any documentation certifying COVID-19
vaccination ... for attendance or enrollment, or to
gain access to ...
(4) The department may impose a fine not to exceed $5,000 per violation.
(5) This section does not apply to a health care provider as defined in s.
768.38; a service provider licensed or certified under s. 393.17, part III of
chapter 401, or part IV of chapter 468; or a provider with an active health
care clinic exemption under s. 400.9935

I'd like to think the exemptions are to show post infection recovery, before medical care but who knows?

This is just another example of how arbitrary and capricious the mandates are.

When they passed this in 2012, I went down to the town meeting where the sheriff and his deputies were hosting a the meeting to discuss the law and what they were going to do about it. Essentially, they said this "we are having our lawyers look at the law to determine its constitutionality".. my reply as I walked right up to sheriff Walsh was something like this:

"Under what rule of law is this decree a law and why on earth do you need a lawyer to look at this? It's obviously, on its face, invalid and void and I don't care what you do. I'm not registering anything and I'm not obeying this law or ANY of the laws. I will buy what I want and host what I want".. in a room of 80 people. That's it.. 80 people.

I then tore out a piece of the news paper that was on his desk that read "I will not comply" in the headline and slammed it on the desk, looked him straight in the face and said "I won't comply with any of it". He just nodded his head and all the deputies just gave me a smile as I walked right the eff out of there.

I left NY for NC with ALL of my gear after 6 years of fighting because not enough of us cared. Drove right the eff over the border Snake Plissken style and never looked back.

I will be G_d damned if I am going to budge on this ****.

Oh.. I just got out of a convo with my home builder's warranty officer for various reasons that are unimportant. The result of that convo was not surprising.

-warranty guy:
We can't get any windows
We can't get wood
We can't get WORKERS
We can't get AC units
We can't get appliances, refrigerators are on back order. Dishwashers too.
We can't get anything to build a house.. your equity is locked into your house; good luck trying to find another one/move..
Since we can't get those things, not only can we not build new homes, but those homes that we can't get appliances for we can't close on, so we have to put people in hotels and pay for them to live..

...WHAT. A. ****. SHOW

Karl knows what he's talking about - the 20/80 rule is about spot on.

I retired March 2019 after 35 years working for the fed gov - USDA. I was working 10-12 hour days and weekends. Burned out.

They called mid-Covid May 2020 asking me to come back as a "annuitant rehire" at 20 hrs/week (flexible) for 2 years to help get caught up. I was bored silly so took them up under the condition that I had no management responsibilities. I've spent the last 18 months helping get caught up on what wasn't done after I retired.

Now, this conspiracy nonsense about the fed gov planning this is exactly that - nonsense. The fed gov, and particularly "WDC aka The Beltway", is populated by warm bodies who all "fell up" or are there to pad their "high 3" before retirement. The fed gov has increasingly become dysfunctional at an accelerating rate over the years. For a variety of reasons, the fed gov jobs that actually require work, like mine, can't attract new hires let alone keep them. Lost 2 more to the private sector the last month and one had 14 years in. If other fed gov agencies are having similar problems, they are operating on severely limited resources just like we are - and the Dems keep piling mandates upon mandate.

If you'd seen the emails flying about the fed gov trying to implement its own vaccine mandate you'd realize that it's an absolute s***-show.

As per Ben Schapiro/The Daily Wire, Biden hasn't even signed an executive order yet to mandate vaccination. It's all a cluster-****ing bluff.

BTW, we live in a small Midwestern town where my wife runs the lab in the local clinic. I took the jab as a matter of keeping the peace at home. No side effects - yet. But, no booster, no pills, no more.

If the fed gov mandates a booster I'll just be retired again.

Spoke to a long-time customer friend yesterday, CIO of a multi-billion corp who's biggest season by far is Christmas. He spoke about the ports (supply-chain) and said, " We have a ship but have to order special labor to off-load. We can't use the port people.... there aren't any. Then, we have to empty the containers into our OWN containers, again with special labor. Then we put the containers back, then hire own newly purchased trucks (again, with drivers when we can find them) to store elsewhere when we can find storage."

They are now leasing planes and rail... ALL going to the bottom line= 30% product increase already just to keep afloat

They had early foresight on what was coming with COVID and survived with furloughs for 90 days while employees kept health insurance. This time, unless the docks resolve quickly (which he admits no chance that will happen) that they are DONE.

A household name... it's just starting....

Agree with Cheetah9 - empty grocery shelves mean nothing to somebody who hasn't gone grocery shopping in years. If things get too scarce they will set up special distribution systems just like party members had special shops in the Soviet Union. But that provides a target and a way to identify other targets right there.

The NEWS says the California port situation is caused by a driver shortage.

Not so fast: It is in part caused by a California Truck Ban which says all trucks must be 2011 or newer and a law called AB 5 which prohibits Owner Operators.


https://mobile.twitter.com/JERRYO1029/st....

No owner/operators?? You've got to be kidding...local owner/operators the ones who do the bulk of the work moving cans in and out of the ports!
Oh look...no more glider trucks too.
So if you're an owner/operator, your choice appears to be...leave Commiefornia.
So that leaves companies? If you had a choice between using older but reliable equipment, or having to buy newer machines that are more expensive to operate, for the privilege of plodding through Commiefornia at 55mph, or simply confine your operating area to the OTHER 49 states, what would you choose?

Anecdotal evidence is not proof.....but see enough of it and things make sense.

Heard of two friends who went to different hospitals yesterday for simple things like blood draws. They waited several hours for something that should have taken 15 minutes. And the staff looks toasted (as in burnt) and quite surly.

I listened to Molyneaux speak about the mandates from companies, which is an overt use of force upon their workers. He equated it to being no different than being in an abusive spouse situation. I would agree.

So even after you take the jab...against your will....to keep the meager paycheck flowing......how does that affect you psyche? Your work ethic? Your morale? I predict many if not most will eventually succumb and take the jab, then resent it and seethe, especially if side effects become a thing. Only an imbecile still believes they actually work.

Boosters will be mandated as well, you can bank on this. Once these psychopaths start....there is no stopping them. This is what has been erased from all levels of education. Start with masks......then social distancing...then complete lockdowns.....now forceful injections (WITH ZERO LIABILITY) that would make Mengele smile.

I spoke with one friend who got the jab and they had a hard bump at the injection site for several months afterward. Hmm.....

This is no vaccine. We need to stop using that term as that implies some sort of efficacy and protection.

This is a JAB. And a dangerous one at that.

Your money or your life....that is the question.

Choose wisely my friends.
