    We've suspected that for quite some time, now. So what's next?
    Toilet paper supply was fine throughout.
    Ony because the Chinese actually expect an aging Gweilo to NEED serviets to wipe his waste-discharge vent...

    AFAIK, our Virginia residence had about a two-year supply on hand before this nonsense even started. If I was actually worried, I'd lay-in an Oxygen respirator and another hundred gallons of #2 Diesel.

    Folks eventually get a klew onct house and garage are full-up with bum-fodder, there's going to be a longish period the markets can't move a 2-roll pack in a whole week as sales go flat for the rest of the year to use-up a national over-stock "warehoused" in private homes!

    Puts me in mind of Harry Truman keeping sugar-rationing in effect in the face of an eye-bleeding surplus, the war long over.

    Dad got pissed-off, bought his parents, his three sisters and brother each a 100 lb sack. We spent a whole damned MONTH brewing Apple butter huge old Copper cauldron a day outdoors over a wood fire with our combined share and the remains of a 5,000 tree apple orchard.

    And the next dozen years trying to use it up!

    Can't STAND apple butter yet, 70 years on!

    This go? Person could learn to enjoy wiping-up with surplus "Feel the Bern" Tee-shirts, maybe?

    Somehow I don't think 16 million Chinese people are really concerned over my well-being. Grocery stores had everything because the socialist government figured out people need to eat, so they stayed open and stocked.

    Wow, what a concept. Preparation and logic .... too bad you weren't here to advise them, we could have had some shortages because, you know, people ...

    No quarrel.

    As long as a select few expat (or is it exiled or expelled?) Kalifornios such as yer good self are hard at work convincing the Chinese to be better Communists, and more along the lines of yer bosem bud in DPRK, if yah please?

    We can hope y'all will be too busy grabbing the opportunity and might ferget trying to kommunize America?

    Win-Win? Well the Chinese might disagree?

    Sixty mile long truck jams at every Euro state border now,so much for the antiBrexit forces.
