Yeah the supply chain disruption is hopefully something that is temporary around these parts. The Walmart warehouse is located in my town and have a brother in law that works there so maybe that’ll come in handy. I read that Texas is temporarily suspending certain DOT regulations to get supplies more quickly and the Governor has just declared state of emergency.

I’m sure Jim’s seeing some realities of panic in Washington.

My wife is fairly cautious on any sickness and won’t go to birthday parties if she reads a kid who’s going was sick recently on Facebook before any of this Covid panic. So we’ll break out the music collection and board games and have a staycation if it gets too serious.

I spoke too soon, went to Sam's this afternoon, not a roll of toilet paper left for sale in the store, no tortillas, no white bread,(the worst bread you can eat BTW) the meat section was nearly picked clean except for the expensive cuts, and lots of empty spaces in the upper parts of the pallet racks but there was plenty of beer on the shelves and bacon in the fridge, thank goodness. I got a email from Sam's the other day above how they were handing out disinfectant wipes at the door for everyone to wipe down their carts, funny thing was the you had to grab a cart before you got to the lady with the wipes, she offered one to me and I just laughed and said "I'm good thanks". And I learned about "scan and go" the greatest thing ever

Our stores started a 1 per customer on certain items which should add some stability. Even if you can partially beat that system it still helps.

Speaking of plants, I got poison ivy. I have never had poison ivy in my life. And I have rolled in it like a dog rolls in poop. Better have another beer to boost my immune system before the Corona gets me

Interesting link about price-gouging and those individuals looking to profit from a pandemic. Yeah, yeah I know big pharma is guilty of the same every single day, on a much more massive scale to boot. But goes to show what a thin veneer societal norms are in relation to people’s true instincts. Or something like that, it’s nearly 1 AM and I can’t sleep.

It is a shame that people try to make money on the misfortune of others.

I figured some people would see profits before people when something like this happens. When the hurricane hit Texas, Home Dipo got caught gouging bottled water prices. Very sad thing. Without going too far to keep this thread alive when moral reasoning is removed from business this is the kinda stuff you get.

It’s a bummer to hear about stories like this guy who drove thousands of miles cleaning out store after store after store of nearly 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and really thinks it’s okay to gouge the prices when society is in need of supplies. This isn’t like buying the favorite Christmas toy and selling it for a profit. These are supplies folks consider essential.

The Arkansas attorney general announced that price gouging law are in effect for is now, so goods can only be sold for 10% above the price that they originally retailed for.

It was enacted years ago during 9/11 when gas stations jacked up the price of gas.

I read in the article where he said 'well it is not gouging when you factor in my labor and shipping which is high" My response would have been well if there weren't assholes like you there wouldn't be a need to order it on the internet it would be available locally. I think it is a bold move to give out your name and area you live when you do something like this in these times of panic. I hope his family business goes out of business


Kansas has also implemented no gouging law on food, lodging,sanitary and cleaning supplies

Today we went to Walmart for regular shopping run. The TP and cleaning product aisles were empty..... but

We found spicy Eyetalian sausage which I've had a hankerin for.

We found plenty of bleach (which we were out of) in the ceement pond section sold under the name of 'sodium hypochlorite'. We bought a gallon.

We found TP in the RV / camping section. Didn't need any so didn't buy any.

We found nitrile gloves in the painting section. These are the only 'crisis' items we purchased.
