I feel bad for the healthcare industry, I really do. I know they are doing their very best with what they have to work with. However, as for someone who works in the manufacturing industry, you can't snap your fingers and have a boat load of new inventory pop up and out.
What is happening around the world is something no one could have ever predicted or forecasted for. I wish they would stop blaming people and/or pointing the finger at certain individuals.
As for the TP shortage, that's all about the hoarders, plain and simple.
What is Faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead. HEBREWS 11:1
Fact is that I have a simple solution if I run out. I wear T-shirts year round under my regular shirts. Always have. When the holes are biger than I want, I then use them as rags. My ex wife was old fashioned and chose to use regular cloth diapers as much as possible so I was used to soiled cotton filling the washing machine during those days.Now I am saving those old T-shirts for another reason. So if I run out of TP and I give you an old clean white T-shirt, all will know what to do with it!

choose to do nothing about that! Einstein
I reached my tipping point last night when I was at Walgreens. I was picking up my 12 pack of Diet Coke when I see this guy and his cart is loaded to the brim with toilet paper, cleaning supplies, diapers, etc. I said, "You're a real hero, pal. It's guys like you who make this country great. Hoarding the essentials so some mother out there doesn't have diapers and can't clean off her counters. Maybe we should give you the Nobel Prize?"
The guy gave me a weird smirk and turned his back on me. That's when I lost it. Four letter words came pouring out, most of the shoppers gathered around to see the show. When it was all said and done, the man looked at me and said, "Can I go back to stocking the shelves now?"

nogie1717....Thanks for my laugh today! God Bless
Well, if the toilet paper runs out, we can always get tamale wrappers, although a bit costly.

Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.
