CORONAVIRUS LAMENT: EVERYTHING'S OUT OF STOCK IN KANSAS CITY!!!

The all singing, all dancing consumers of Kansas City have pretty much been failed by capitalism and the free market amid pandemic panic.

Thing of it is . . . As bad as it is in Italy, the grocery stores are still open.

So a lot of this hoarding is nothing more than panic and people showing fellow shoppers that they're scared and they didn't take time to prep earlier.

Here in the basement HQ of TKC we're out of toilet paper BUT we've got a trusty spoon, a case of 64 ounce jars of peanut butter, a hose and about a half dozen 1.75 liter jugs of discount rum. We're good until, maybe, June.

Kansas City Stores Struggle To Stock Clorox And Cold Meds As Residents Prepare To Self-Quarantine

Lila Symons was waiting in line at a grocery store in midtown Kansas City on Thursday, wearing a surgical face mask and pushing a cart full of paper goods and non-perishable foods. When she returned to her Kansas City home later that afternoon, she planned to hunker down in a self-imposed quarantine for the next week or two.

  1. The Chinese made any discoveries about the virus available to the world scientific community. The tools were there, only because this administration lacks leadership don’t scapegoat the Chinese. The only real cure is contracting the desease, build antibodies and protect the very young, old and pregnant. Quit spreading shit.

    1. No. China has been lying about this since the crisis began, about everything one could lie about. They disappeared people who were speaking out, suppressed information, and lied about what they couldn't suppress.

    2. I'm new to Kansas City3/13/20, 1:33 PM

      You can get a bidet for your toilet that attaches directly under the seat with a valve you can turn off and clean yourself. You only need about six squares of toilet paper to finish the job, it's really just drying up that is required. Quite refreshing in the summer when it's hot, can be a bit startling in the winter when it's cold. But the use of toilet paper decreases exponentially. The cost is around $25, the reduction in frustration is well worth any money spent on toilet paper

  2. ^But Trump failed to prepare anything remotely resembling a coherent plan. He has lied continuously and most egregious, he delayed testing to improve his reelection chances. He is a complete and total failure. He has lost the presidency over this.

  8. You can click your Ruby Slippers together all you want and pretend it is Trump's fault, just like you can pretend if you're Progressive and have a dick that you are a girl, but it won't change a fuckin thing.

    The Chinese Communists released this pestilence on the world and it is killing people every minute of every day. P.E.R.I.O.D.

  10. ^^^^At last you can start using some of that Y2K stash that's been taking up room in your basement for 20 years.

  11. Don't blame capitalism for the empty shelves. In a free market system, prices would rise in response to increased demand, which prevents panic buying and pays for overtime at the factory. Blame our communist price gouging laws and our fake news press instead.

  13. TOP PHOTO -- LIKE WATER OFF A DUCK'S BACK

    The public's unfamiliarity with a small cheap handheld device (travel bidet) led to panic hoarding of toilet paper!!!

  20. 401K's and stock market is legal gambling with your money. You are all smiles as it grows, but now is the other side of the coin. Anyone who invests in such thinking it will always be sunny days filled with fresh flowers are the same fools who flock to Vegas every year betting the kids education fund money at the crap tables. If you invest in stocks or 401's not understanding what you can or could lose you are clearly like most people that failed to do your homework. Remember those pushing you into buying into those sorts of investing have about the same integrity as most used car salesman do. They get paid, they make a profit and will continue too as you lose.

  29. In Reality all this crap is nothing more than a prelude for Donald Trump to extend the "State Of National Emergency", cancel the November Elections, suspend Congress as "too large a gathering", nationalize the National Guard, declare Martial Law, and rule by decree!
