    “Please, experts are asking, don’t panic” Well there’s your first problem, if 2020 proved anything, people won’t listen to anything any so called experts who so called know whats going on so called say, not when they have other less reputable sources like Fox that tells them to panic

    What a surprise. Remember when people were fighting over packs of toilet paper? I thought, at the time, just shows how thin a veneer human civilisation is. Of course not everyone is like that but it highlights those without empathy and concern for others.

    Yesterday I sat for half an hour waiting for a truck to unload gas so I could top off my tank. I was looking over my shoulder for possible violence. Very glad the pipeline is up and running now. Just think if the internet went down for a few weeks what the young techno generation would suffer.

    You know what’s hilarious though? The ransomeware attack had ABSOLUTELY 100% NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY SYSTEM OR CONNECTED SYSTEM THAT CONTROLS THE PHYSICAL PIPELINE AND THE ONLY MFKN REASON THE PIPELINE IS “SHUT DOWN” IS OUT OF AN “ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION”. Aka, this is a fake shortage money grab to push legislation and increase quarterly gains. It’s mind boggling how many fukpotatos there are mixed in with all of you supposed “human beings”. The ransomware attack was on a completely separate office management system you mindless fukbananas. This is all fake. Like for real now. Actual fake news. And you’re all still stuck so far up Trump’s ass you are missing it.

    Fun fact: transportation fuel can be made from hemp, and the US legalized Cannabis to win World War II.
    Fun fact no. 2: No one cares, so Cannabis is still illegal (even though it’s legal damn near everywhere now) so the world is still dependent on fossil fuels.

    It takes a special mindset to react like the South did to a 3 day partial shutdown of one gas main. End-timers and Q-tippers, mostly, all too young to remember the real shortages in the 70’s, which were irritating, but NBD.

    I remember a time of chaos
    Ruined dreams of this wasted land
    Another age when the world was powered by the black fuel
    Where deserts sprouted cities of pipe and steel
    Two great warrior tribes went to war
    They touched off a blaze which engulfed them all
    Men began to feed on men
    Only those mobile enough to scavenge and brutal enough to pillage survived
    The roads were a white line nightmare
    Gangs willing to do anything for a tank of juice
    In this maelstrom of decay the ordinary were battered and smashed
    Men like Max
    With the roar of an engine he lost everything
    A shell, burned out and desolate
    Haunted by demons of the past
    Wandering the wasteland

    It’s a wonder that as soon as the southeast started re-opening, Colonial’s database got hacked. Note that the pipeline never lost fuel. They chose to turn off four lines. It was their decision. The prices are going up due to the dwindling supply of what’s already in circulation. How can you lot not understand that? Are any of you demanding that the Biden admin re-instate Keystone Pipeline? Are any of you demanding they at least publicly advise Colonial on what to do about the “ransom” demand? Are any of you demanding they declare this an act of war from as of yet relatively unknown parties? No. Instead, you lot mock the fact that after one week, over 15,000 gas stations in the southeast are already out of fuel. (According to Epoch Times.) Your heads have softened so much, while your hearts have hardened even more against your fellow-citizens. How can you not think for yourselves? How can you not see this is an act of war?

    If you can’t tell that you’re being manipulated, it means you lend yourselves to deceit. Viewers of the Late Show, please understand that’s what these comedians are doing to you. And stop watching.

    (I had subscribed years ago when Colbert had just taken over the Late Show. Then my views began to change. I kept the subscription to observe how the writers’ room spins the “news”. To me, they seem to get more deceitful over time.)

    God bless you, those who claim to follow Christ. Please stay in prayer and confess your sins and help your brethren.

    as someone who lives 45minutes outside of Nashville, I can attest that on Tuesday there were like 20+ plus cars at every gas station in my town, and on wed all gas stations were out of gas… good thing I filled up on Sunday… and now on Thursday everything is back to normal and I’m just laughing my ass off at the idiots creating a shortage with their panic… fucking idiots were loading 10+ gas cans… literally everything is back to normal and those assholes hoarding 2-3 weeks worth of gas created a shortage out of their stupidity…

    Pasco Florida here. Yesterday I was on E when I left my house and went to three gas stations and finally got stuck at the last one with no gas. In tears I had to call a friend who drove all over the next town over and finally found me 5 gallons of gas and brought it to me two hours later. I was stranded.

    The thing about a just-in-time supply chain is that, while it saves on the costs that might otherwise be incurred by having stockpiles on-site, it does mean that if any significant number of imbeciles panic and decide to hoard stuff, it produces an immediate short-term shortage. The good news is that at least one gas-hoarding twit had their hummvee burn up. So that’s good.
