It took long enough.

Want folks to willingly accept Xidenflation?

The answer is so simple that it's surprising it took this long for retailers to learn to cooperate.

1. Reduce the quantity of a group of items on open display. Classic example: Toilet paper.
2. At the register post notices of quantity limits on those items.
3. Bitch loudly about how the shortage of toilet paper is spreading to all paper products.
4. Reduce the amount of various paper products on the shelf.
5.. Remove all toilet paper and paper towels from the shelvest; post "Sorry about that" signs.
6. Change the price tags on the out of stock items upward....big time.

Beginning to get the flow?
Now leave the higher prices on the empty shelves for a few days. Then put a few things back on the shelves and watch them fly off the shelves at doubled prices.

But nobody would THAT, right?????

Yes, and equally, America would NEVER elect an Alzheimer's victim to ANY public office.

You know how it goes.....(according to the far right) the Left is weak and overly powerful, all at the same time.

Xiden has no ideas of his own.

He's not allowed.

Those who donated so much to him simply united on their own.

Watching a fun game being played by the owners of two gas stations about 3 miles from home. They're on opposite corners of a major intersection. For years they competed for volume, each trying to stay a little lower price than the other.

There's no other gas for at least five miles in any direction.

These days they play it differently. One jumps the price per gallon by a dime. The other holds for a day and reaps the benefits of price. Then it's his turn. He ups the price by 20 cents and lets the business go across the street. Then after an agreed time the see-saw switches tilt again.

Those customers (few these days) not "paying at the pump" are told they just beat the new prices Xiden's shortages are causing. They believe it without even looking at the prices 5-miles away.

The Gullible: God's Gift to Retail!

So you are saying a grocery store owner in Hungary is emptying his shelves to help Biden.

A global plot.

Fascinating.

I'm going to have to interrogate my local grocer and get to the bottom of this.

"All right, man. Where are you hiding the bacon bits?"

It does not really matter. The fault is not relevant to the political price, sadly.

the democrats will pay if they cannot right this and do so quickly. They have an advantage in that this is occurring now, a year before the next election, but if they do not get crap back on the shelves and Americans some normalcy, they are going to eviscerate the democrats in the next election.

With it being an off year, that can mean a sea change in the congressional makeup. It might be worse for them that is occurring in an off year when the republicans can really take this and run with it.
