Yesterday, we went to Costco. The meat department had been significantly reduced. Storage space had been removed to make it still look full, but they had about half of what they normally do. I've seen a couple of reports about farmers having to destroy their livestock and crops because they can't get it processed and shipped. Yesterday's shrunken Costco meat shelves were shocking.
I've also seen reports that the farmers will receive government assistance. That means cash.
Since you can't eat cash, that solution only makes sense from a theoretical point of view. Also, as Senator Rand Paul pointed out recently, all of that cash is imaginary. So we pay people who we're preventing from making the real stuff that we need with imaginary money because that makes sense in our theoretical world.
And people wonder why the average person doesn't trust the Elites any more.
|On the plus side, I was able to find a couple of trail heads that were still open in the Cleveland National Forest. We took the Catican Guards out on maneuvers at one of them yesterday.|
