  1. No maybe it was not so Smart for the Goverment to "PAY PEOPLE NOT TO WORK"
    Add that to the numbers of Americans that are taking losing their jobs over being Forced to take a shot "And why not that is what Socialism is all about. Goverment paying people NOT to Work if they chose not to. Socialism is like an Unearned Retirement. But then what happens when you don't have People to unload Ship's or Fly jets or Answer when you call 911? What we are seeing now is just the tiny tip of what is looming if we do not STOP this craziness NOW

  2. You can see the freight trains on i-10 everyday and i-40 everyday..if the train track breaks there will not be supplys for the east coast because all the truckers went home and out of Business..truckers are under strick laws to have insurance that is unaffordable..so with the choking of freight to deliver they dont make the money to pay insurance and the cops shut down the trucking companys that same day of non insurance payment.and the cops driving all over the place looking for truckdrivers to bust.

  3. The freight fowarder is in charge of paying freight brokers.freight brokers hire and pay truckdrivers..freight fowarders is a billion dollar operation with shares in insurance..they want to put out of bisiness independent truck drivers by price gouging insurance in the range of $1500 to $2000 per month which is unaffordable..and now the freight fowarders dont want to pay truckdrivers.they want to put everthing on the train because ita cheaper and they have shares in the railroad freight trains too..

  4. This information is so you can get your facts straight..the shipping logistics in charge of paying truckers dont want to pay truckers.they want to put the freight on the train to go east to make more proffits because the train is cheaper..and they are partners with insurance companys that decided they want to charge truckers double tripple price for mandatory insurance which is unaffordable to truckers out of Business..so they can corner the market and thats the outcome..they run the truckers out of business and charge the remainding double tripple insurance prices and put there freight on the train to make more proffits.

  5. Oh my, oh dear, what on earth will we do if we can't buy things? All this drama because we might not have even more stuff to buy. Now if we could just put that energy and focus on real problems we'd be on the right path.

  6. We're the same here in UK,so what's our excuse,plus MSM just love scare tactics with food shortage headlines creating panic buying,we are seeing people piling trolleys high with panic buying,MSM telling us shortages for Christmas so people are emptying shelves,those that can afford to of course,other people with lesser incomes that have to buy in smaller quantities end up with not even the daily essentials. What is the end game of all this I ask myself,what's the world leader's big plan,

  7. There Is No Shortage of Energy; There Is Shortage of Normalcy

    Despite increased production of energy from renewable sources, and despite the slowdown in car manufacturing, oil prices are skyrocketing. Even though fewer power plants still burn coal, coal prices are skyrocketing, as well. Natural gas prices, too, are going through the roof, and energy demand seems to outpace supply in every country and in every form of energy. Have Earth’s energy sources dwindled so drastically in a matter of months? The answer is a resounding “No!” There is no shortage of energy; there is a serious shortage of normalcy in human relations. I hope the current crisis will put some sense into humanity’s insane consumption.
    The energy crunch indicates that we are over consuming. We are producing too much, throwing the excess production to the trash, polluting the ground, the air, and the water, and then we are complaining that we do not have enough. It is about as sane as killing one’s parents and then pleading for the court’s mercy because I’ve recently been orphaned.
    It is time we reconsider everything we produce—how we divide production, profits, and goods, which services are necessary and which are redundant, and most importantly, how we treat one another. The goal of this process should be clear to everyone: survival.
    There is no ulterior motive, no attempt to dominate or deprive anyone of power or wealth. It is simply that reality is forcing us to take all of humanity and the entire planet into consideration. If we don’t, our entire civilization will collapse like a deck of cards.
    Since we still do not understand it and insist on running things the way we have always been running them—through power games—I anticipate a very cold and gloomy winter for the northern hemisphere. The energy crunch will leave many in dark and cold houses; there will be no gas for cars, and renewable energy will not replace traditional sources since there will be little sun during the winter. I hope that at least, it will make us rethink our values. If it doesn’t, next summer will be even worse than the awful summer that just ended.
    I know that many people are counting on the promise of renewable energy to solve the energy problems of humanity. I think they are mistaken. There is plenty of energy, far more than we really need. We could cut emissions by at least half tomorrow. But the more we have, the hungrier we become, so our thirst for energy will never be satiated, and we will never stop exploiting the planet or each other until we reeducate ourselves and start being humane toward each other.
    We have been behaving like spoiled brats whose parents buy them whatever they want. Now, our parents have run out of money and our childhood is over. It is time for us to mature and conduct ourselves like responsible adults, caring for all of humanity the way a mother cares for her entire family. If we think like a family, we will achieve normalcy.
