    Default Canned Pumpkin Shortage

    Has anybody NOT been able to get the supply of pumpkin that they wanted?
    There have been no shortages in my area. Shelves are full of whatever kind
    of tinned pumpkin that is usually available.

    It's called a publicity stunt.

    Expect more of them every year after year after year.

    Publix didn't have any large cans, just small ones and not nearly as
    many on display as they usually have... but across the street at
    Albertsons they had plenty.

    Yes and expect more threads day after day after day, as each new
    retard *discovers* this "shortage"......I think the shortage is on
    brain-cells.

    The threads will continue for at least another year. The pumpkin in
    the stores now is from last year which was very wet also, but his year
    was worse in Illinois so I imagine next year will be worse. Libby's
    and other packers may be exploiting the situation to raise prices but
    there "is" a shortage due to mother nature. Big business playing
    games to control prices is nothing new. You may remember a post I
    made about dairy cattle being slaughtered so supply would go down and
    milk prices could go back up.

    Here's a middle of the night twist from an insomniac: I was driving
    through central and north-central Illinois a week ago and drove past
    miles of fields filled with rotting pumpkins. All within 90 minutes
    of Chicago. So we've got over 10% unemployment and who knows how many
    on food stamps or other government assistance. Yet there's food
    rotting because a machine can't get to it? A human and a pair of
    boots could harvest it. Something is really wrong with this picture.

    On our return trip back to Chicago I saw at least 20 farmers working
    the corn fields on tractors with lights at 10:00pm Sunday night. At
    one point I had 4 of them in my sight. All different farms. These
    men and women are working through the night trying to make a living
    and keep their farms while some fat-ass lazy bitch is stuffing her
    face with potato chips purchased with food stamps while watching
    desperate housewives.

    I wrote the above at 3:00 this morning and after going back to bed I
    decided against the paragraph that was where this one is. Some stuff
    is really screwed up with how things work in the US.

    I was surprised to find no canned pumpkin at Aldi's when I shopped for
    Christmas dinner last year. I couldn't find a place on the shelf for
    it, so I assumed that they didn't carry it at all. I bought sweet
    potatoes and made sweet potato pie instead.

    Hopefully she's the only one with their hands in the chip bag. She
    doesn't wash her hands after she goes poo.

    Aldi's isn't a real grocery store. There's a few things we get there
    but they don't come close to filling all our needs.
