This is going to send world economy into an economic collapse of never seen before proportions. B/C, even the GNP of countries that is not being shipped will be hoarded and inflated to astronomic proportions. Hang on, folks. the ride is going to get wilder than we've ever seen.

This is what the elites have been trying to do. Stock it, stack it, repeat.

Such a mess. I am only one person, but I buy a pkg of toilet paper EVERY TIME I go in a walmart or dollar general or whatever....and usually kleenex and sometimes papertowels; I don't use alot of paper towels, preferring dish towels for most things.... I don't drink coffee and don't know anyone close who does more than an occasional cup... but I have plenty of hersheys syrup and Nestle' Quik for choc milk and hot cocoa stashed.... Also keep plenty of soap, and toothpaste, and deodorant, Q-tips, and some gauze and bandaids....Don't want to ever get as low as I got the last time, and I still had a fair amount stashed back....

Still can't find any canning lids in Walmarts or the co-op.... I am ordering some of the rubber rings for my old glass bail-top canning jars; Lehman's has them. Got some canning lids from U-line.... but want to get a full sleeve for backup.... have some of the tattler lids but don't want them on anything I give away or share since you don't know if you are going to get them back.

Its been freed and refloated now. I only learned of it in the first place because of the memes 🤣 it barely made news waves here until tonight, after being moved. I guess because it barely affected anything in Australia. I didnt even know what the suez canal was!

Yep, it's freed. but the back up of ships waiting to get through will send prices of all goods through the roof. I'm guessing we won't see the end of the inflation from that until the end of the summer. By then, there will be a whole new "boatload" (pun intended) set of excuses for inflation.

Lot of news of cyber attacks in Australia. Hard to tell what's true and what's not true, maybe you could give us the truth.
