Prices for all kinds of products, from lumber to diapers, have been climbing this year. The headline measure of consumer prices rose 4.2% in the 12 months through April, the most since 2008. The numbers for May are due to be published on Thursday.


gas is up too..

It's a disaster

Walmart has major suppliers not shipping, more empty shelves to come. Not just supply chain issues with the freight forwarders (which is a major problem, covid has shut a major port this week in Yantian) but suppliers will not air goods in, their costs are skyrocketing, Walmart doesn't want to give increases, so some suppliers are not paying premium rates required to get goods on the water in timely matter.
A container from Ningbo was $4k range a year or so ago ($3k to LA) , now they start at $9k.

  • Headline consumer prices rose 5% year over year in May, the fastest pace since August 2008 and higher than Wall Street expectations.
  • The 3.8% rise in the core inflation rate, which excludes food and energy prices, was the sharpest increase in nearly three decades.
  • Surging used car car prices helped drive much of the inflation gains.
  • Initial jobless claims totaled 376,000, a touch higher than the estimate.

Things are going well

We are spending $20k/container now, often more from north China.

Walmart and others are going to have a rough 4th qtr with nothing on the shelves and suppliers demanding increases.

I went to Kohls for the first time in prob 6 months this week after they sent me some kohls cash - the store is thinly stocked, what used to be constant racks and displays now has large tracks where you can take 5-6 steps before coming to the next rack. I assume it's due to supply chain issues.

I ended up not buying anything either.

It will be an ugly year for cars also. We are looking at 2023 before things are somewhat back to normal.

Nope. They have a gimme when Supreme Leader Biden's totalitarian, dictatorial COVID-19 policies have absolutely no effect on reducing cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in the northern states over the winter.

Just in time for the vaccine to lose every bit of its effectiveness in most people already vaccinated.

The protests have already begun. Just wait until every excuse that you idiots have used to this point has been completely exhausted and the surge ends right when midterm campaigns kick into gear.

They cant break away because the republican party establishment controls no aspect of their base, none whatsoever. Whereas Trump controls most of it. I would personally prefer Desantis but I doubt that'll happen, Christie is utterly irrelevant, I know a whole bunch of republicans like him and Haley for example fancy themselves as potentials, but they are in la la land.

LOL. Nobody likes Christie. People voted for Trump because he WASN'T a career politician. Trump was a grassroots candidate.

You people have been so busy getting brainwashed that you never actually took a single minute to truly understand why people supported Trump.

You might as well throw Liz Cheney up there too. She's got about as much of a chance. There is no way the people who voted for Trump vote get behind any of those corrupt slimeballs. They're no different than the Democrats.

The republican old guard thinks trump will pass and it'll go back to the way it was. that's not happening, Trump could die tomorrow and no one would go back to supporting the christies, haleys and jeb bush's.

In that scenario, it would be interesting to see who takes the reins from him - the Trump Reps.

It would be whomever opposes the establishment the most, desantis, abbot, even noem - I understand that there are huge doubts about some of them too but under no circumstance would a lindsey graham for example ever have a chance.

Who The Fuck is Going To Take on Trump in a Republican 2024 Primary ?

A Total Waste of Time.

Trump's Approval Among Republicans is in The 80 Percentile.

I'll Tell You How They Can Act Smart.

Battle Like Hell To Get on The Ticket, as His V.P. Running Mate.
