Baby Formula shortage is a Government plot.

Politico: FDA timeline shows bungling on formula shortage — but also months of inaction by Biden.

And the agency didn’t notify the Agriculture Department, which oversees a critical federal nutrition program that purchases about half of the nation’s infant formula, about potential disruptions until a week before the Abbott plant shut down. The program, known as WIC, serves 1.2 million infants from low-income families. Abbott supplies nearly half of all infant formula provided through WIC state contracts.

 

This is why there were shortages.

Without the government, which makes up half the market thanks to you being robbed of your tax dollars to pay for welfare handouts, there would be as many manufacturers of formula as there are makers of breakfast cereal, and with as many different selections.

You’d have national brands like Similac, discount versions of the nationals like Amazon’s, Equate’s, or Great Value baby formulas, smaller regional producers, and extremely local-small production run products.

And with the market spread across dozens of manufacturers, instead of just 3, then the loss of one producer would mean a drop of maybe 10% or less, instead of 33%.

This government created monopoly caused this shortage.

From the comments about the price of energy.

Biden’s climate policies realized: New York’s ‘Home Energy Crisis’ – ‘More than a million households are 60 days in arrears on their energy bills, with an avg. of $1,427.71 in debt, & shut-offs are increasing’.

Heating oil is $6 a gallon, and it’s almost June. This should be the low for the season, ordinarily. If it’s the low this season, and people actually have to pay $6 a gallon for heating oil this winter, there will be widespread death – literal death – from cold, and incredible economic dislocation among anyone living paycheck to paycheck (and at this point, that’s the majority).

Heating oil is #2 distillate and is nearly indistinguishable from diesel fuel. And yes, my last tank fill a couple weeks ago was $1100. Interestingly, my online billing portal has my transactions going back a couple of years. in December of 2020 a fill was just over $400.

Right, exactly. So every word I see printed about diesel, I mentally add the words “…and heating oil.”

But because it’s warm out right now and because our journalists and politicians are unable to think ahead farther than 72 hours, nobody seems to be anticipating what $6 a gallon heating oil will look like, 20 weeks from today.

Quote of the day.

The issue is not the type of firearm, it’s not the magazine capacity, it’s not even the fact that it’s a firearm, and it’s surely not what flavor of politics the killer claims or espouses. The issue is mental health and criminal behavior. As long as we are letting the crazies and the crooks run the streets, we’re going to have dead people.William Lehman

One party wants to lock up criminals in prison and commit the crazies to institutions where both they and the rest of society will be safe.   And the other party doesn’t. And if you are a member of that second party, go to Hell.

New wrinkle on an old game.

King Of Battle

God fights on the side with the best artillery.
– Napoleon Bonaparte

Oberst (Col.) Reisner of the Austrian Army giving a thoroughly professional and easily understandable briefing on why Ukraine keeps kicking the shit out of inferior Russian forces with artillery tactics hitherto largely unknown, and capabilities that are even better than us at our best to date, especially so for a fourth-rate military cobbled together under constant attack and three months of invasion by a nominally far stronger power.

1. Ukraine developed a simple program (GIS ARTA) which anyone, even people who are essentially untrained national guardsmen conscripts, can use to upload target info to the network in seconds, to within a couple of meters of accuracy. This wiped out any requirement for highly trained FOs (Forward Observers), and shortened required competency at that task from months to minutes. That’s world-beating.

2. Elon Musk’s 1760-satellite multi-redundant and unjammable Starlink system communicates that data to every weapon system user on the network, in real time.

3. Ukraine deploys its artillery, not in traditional “Come counter-battery the shit out of me” compact battery formations, but rather in highly dispersed packets over wide areas, making counter-battery massing of fires immensely more difficult. Used to be, an artillery gun or rocket battery fit inside an acre or two, and Ivan’s counter-battery would wipe out that whole grid square within 3 minutes. Now, the Ukes have dispersed their weapons over entire square miles and miles, and anything over everywhere can get the target, and open fire, and the fires are massed on the impact area, without the tubes or systems being massed from the launch point. This isn’t evolutionary, it’s revolutionary. It’s the difference between taking a Napoleonic company of riflemen blasting away with smoothbore muskets, and transitioning your force to 200 guys with Barrett .50BMG sniper weapons, and scattering them from hell to breakfast, and having them pick off people from a mile away. Good luck returning that kind of incoming fire. (It was last tried by the US 7th Cavalry at the Little Bighorn. Spoiler Alert: This did not go well for them.)

4. The Ukrainians are using laser-targeted and GPS guided projectiles, and getting first-round hits with artillery. Russia is getting, in their laps, what happened to Saddam’s army for the first time in 1990, where you had LGBs (Laser Guided Bombs) going into truck windows, and through ventilation shafts at HQ, and precisely targeting anything you can see. And Ukrainian drones are seeing everything.

5. Turning this level of targeting on Russian HQ, and any massed forces. In the video, Col. Reisner notes 13 Soviet generals, and 30 colonels are now good Russians, courtesy of the Ukrainians shellacking the hell out of any Russian HQ they find. (FTR, IIRC, the US hasn’t lost 13 generals in battle in the last century.)


This is all new to me.  And (if true) gives heretofore unknown importance to Elon Musks Starlink system.  And it finally explains (to me at least) why the Russians are doing so badly.

I don’t believe this system is completely or even mostly homegrown, EU or USA is the Papa.

Whisper of a warning that bad times are coming.

Snippet.

Less than half of the corn, wheat and soybeans usually planted this time of year is in the ground.

Combine that with virtually no wheat exports from Ukraine and America’s already shaking supply chain and things could get interesting — difficult, perhaps.

Remember, baby formula shelves are bare because one plant closed. You don’t need to take much out of the system to cause chaos.

We are now talking about a large percentage of corn, wheat and soybeans — gone come fall.

Enjoy your last taste of meat.  Fill your freezer when the prices dip briefly when the cost of cattle feed gets to the level that slaughtering the animals that the farmers and ranchers can not afford to feed causes a glut of meat to hit the market.  And afterwards nothing.

The Ukrainian farmers are shooting at Russians, not planting Spring Wheat. Russian soldiers are hauling stolen Ukrainian farm equipment away.  You can’t harvest wheat you didn’t plant.  Fertilizer is in short supply in America.  Diesel for farm equipment is sky high.  Fuel shortages and rationing are coming.

Bread will become very dear.

The Fed can print all the money they want.  You can’t eat money.

This is what Elon is talking about.

Almost half of President Joe Biden’s current 22.2 million followers on Twitter are fake accounts, according to an audit tool provided by software company SparkToro.

Coming soon, it’s in our future.

Could It Happen Here? 200 Dead, as Sri Lanka Literally Runs Out of Gas

The Indian Ocean island nation’s government committed the country to 100% organic farming in 2021.

Can you guess what happened in between banning agrochemicals and 200 rioting Sri Lankans being shot dead in the streets by security forces?

This:

Within six months of the ban, rice production in the country—a once very sufficient industry—dropped 20 percent, forcing Sri Lanka to import $450 million of rice to meet supply needs and surging rice prices rose nearly 50 percent.

Now, Sri Lanka will pay farmers across the country 40,000 million rupees ($200 million) to compensate for their barren harvests and crop failures. In addition to the funding, the Sri Lankan government will pay $149 million in price subsidies to rice farmers impacted by the loss.

Formerly self-sufficient, taxpaying farmers were forced on the government dole — by the government.

Sri Lanka went woke and now it’s gone broke with enough gasoline to last “for a single day.”

“The Ministry of Finance” of the Democratic Socialist Republic “is finding it difficult to raise $5 million required to import gas,” new President Ranil Wickremesinghe told his hungry and broke nation on Monday.
