Extra 3-4 days sail time vs having your ships sit idle off the California coast for months.
Once again Democrats scare away major businesses.

“Florida is where your success comes in, and our seaports are the solution to ensure the cargo shipping logjam doesn’t become the Grinch that stole Christmas,” said Michael Rubin, President and CEO of the Florida Ports Council. “Why pay to moor off the coast of California, when Florida shipping lanes are open and serving as the gateway for getting goods to America’s market,” Rubin said in a press release.

Good for him.

I may just get back into driving a truck and head to Florida. It looks like the jobs are going to be booming!

It goes without saying that the cucks on the left are just going to sit and collect their government bribes to stay home.

A deter through the Panama Canal would not be unreasonable or unduly lengthy to break up the
logjam in west coast ports like Tacoma, Oakland, LA, etc.
Especially since California ports refuse to operate 7/24 like they should be.

Plus in Florida they don't have to worry about this:

How many ports on the East Coast can accomodate massive container ships some which are over 1000 ft. long on the Atlantic Ocean in winter, the stormiest time of the year? Do those ports have gantry cranes which can unload containers weighing tons or haven't we thought of that yet?

LOL. The cost to move goods - mostly from the Far East (China, S.Korea) - is an absurd consideration.

The vaccine mandate caused this. Now the Los Angeles port can operate 24/7. The port has hired a bunch of Non union unvaccinated workers. The Union can only let the vaccinated work. They are livid. High school kids are being given a run down on truck driving. The big retailers, Walmart, Target, Costco, have hired their own crews and their own trucks. Vax be damned.

Why is it that every time I see Pete Buttigieg on T.V., he reminds me of Alfred E. Newman....

Like All Old-School Policies, Gunboat Diplomacy Was a Good Thing

We should extend the Rio Grande straight through to California and build a new canal there That will teach Panama a lesson about being so ungrateful to us for creating its independence from Colombia, which it never would have gotten on its own.

California is becoming a wasteland.

40% of US port freight is unloaded in Los Angeles/Long Beach alone.
Businesses have over-ordered.
Warehousing is full.
Florida can't handle what the left coast can.
Holy shit folks... this wins the prize for the dumbest post of the month already.
Hilarious.

If Florida begins picking off that work California's ports will magically open.

Obviously you have forgotten the ports of Baltimore, Virginia, Newark, New York, Boston. Tampa Bay, Wilmington, Charleston, Georgetown, Houston, and New Orleans. That's just a few that are available on the Atlantic Coast to help alleviate the burden of the West coast.
