Haven't heard that one yet. Are they perhaps making a supply of rotten eggs to throw at politicians when they find out how much freedom we just lost for no good reason?

Okay folks, turns out the TP shortage isn't just about hoarders and profiteers. Turns out they are simply a small part of the problem. The problem lays in the fact that there are two production streams for TP; one for consumers and one for commercial business. The problem is it's not the same stuff. Commercial TP is usually thinner and a little coarser than something like Northern Quilted. The bulk of the TP shortage comes from the fact that a f*ck ton of people are now at home all day. Parents who worked and kids who went to school all day are now using the bathroom at home all day. Those in the business have stated that even a modest increase in TP sales would have left a shortage in the stores.

He's a Spanish comedian nicknamed "El Risitas" ("The Giggles").

In June 2007, he appeared on Jesús Quintero's show Ratones Coloraos (Colour Mice) and described an incident when he worked as a dishwasher. He describes leaving some paella pans (paelleras) at night in the ocean to soak and clean, and when in the morning he returned to retrieve the pans, they had washed out to sea with the tide. He frequently interrupts the story with his trademark laugh. The original video was uploaded to YouTube on June 25, 2007 and received over a million views.

Since then, it's become popular to put English subtitles over his interview to make it appear as though he's talking about something else, usually a current event.

OH BOO HOO!


And what freedom did YOU LOOSE?


The freedom to share a VIRULENT PESTILENCE with old folks is not much of a right!


Yes- it is DIFFICULT to deal with social distancing and related CRAP!

But recall that LIE-berals SNEERED at people - calling them RACISTS for advocating that travellers be quarantined!


If LIE-berals had closed the border at the same time as Australia - we could have saved BIG BUCKS AND MANY LIVES!


Too bad LIE-berals were too busy VIRTUE SIGNALING AS USUAL to bother protecting us!


And yes the BIG BAIL OUT is generating HUGE DEBTS THAT WILL HURT US FOR A LONG TIME!


But the alternative - meaning doing NOTHING is even WORSE!



As proof - I suggest you read the old book about The Great Depression - written by Pierre Berton!


It is depressing as hell but it is informative about the COST of not helping out!


Your right to go to the park IS TRIVIAL compared to MY RIGHT not to be infected with a NASTY VIRUS!
