        You're good. The price won't go down any time soon. What will you get, a 100+ pounds? You can eat through that in a few months. Inviting us over for steaks?

        I am happy to pay $10/lb for bison. It tastes so much better.

            All of our materials are going up at work (Printing.) Paper especially and the supply chain is thinning down on us.... A bumpy ride is ahead so I hope people are prepared....

            The cost of steel has went way up in the last year.

              Its gonna take a new policy somewhere to get this place running again. I don't care what party comes up with it. You give money to someone to not work and work DOESN'T GET DONE..and that affects everyone. Disclaimer: I'm not an economist.

                My first policy as economic czar: clear the F'n ports of containers! Rail them 24/7 all off to Barstow and store them in the dry desert to get sorted and back on the road...plenty of space! And then get the trucks driving again: Military, National guard, private..whomever wants to assist, this is a National crisis.

                        Shakers and movers have the power to implement the National guard to help with this.... But there are other reasons for it not happening and what those are I do not know. Leave no doubt you have a good idea but it's not going to happen until it changes the amount of money lining the pockets of politicians.... They are too busy making money on Vaccines and I suspect that ties into it...

                              If you can borrow money for almost nothing, does that not tell us there is something pretty much WRONG!??
                              When the Fed. prints all the $$$ they want and it is backed by what? nothing except a promise... what does that tell you?
                              IF you JOE whoever, owes more than your assets and the interest owed is more than you earn... are you really NOT broke!??
                              If the gov'ment starts forgiving loans.. any loan..student loans, whatever... what does that tell you??

                              You know what would jump start the trucking industry? Imported labor (or immigrant...those Afghans can drive the shit out of POS trucks!). No joke. Farm labor has been imported for decades because its back breaking work and no domestic work force is willing to do it. Imagine if the same happened in the trucking industry with Keystone pipeline back up and running or subsidized fuel prices for over the road trucking? (They subsidize everything else, 3 billion to homeless and we got MORE?) I tell you that industry would get back on its feet REAL FAST and the domestic labor force will be clamoring to get those jobs back. Would not be popular but neither is $4.00/g Diesel. Does this administration have the balls to pull that one, where you at Buttigiege?

                                Our money has been backed by nothing but 'a promise' since Nixon. Nothing new there.

                                  This is manufactured by people like Whitmer, Pelosi, Newsom, McConnell, et cetera to punish the plebians for their temerity in thinking that they are free men.

                                  This lockdown shit is part of it.

                                  This entire "emergency" is created and perpetrated by frightened and small minded sadists.

                                  Take this lesson to heart what fear of man, and fear of death leads to. What would this have looked like, had the world had fear of God in their hearts, been the rule instead.

                                  For all of A/J's long-windedness, and how he bugs people, even me sometimes he has the right of it.
