Last time I bought from them was about 2000. I bought MRE cases to take to the mining claim.

That's about when they went to the dumps. No later than 2004 or 5.

I'm going to cut and paste something I posted in another forum.....something that really irritates me, as predictable as it is, and something that most people haven't really examined the notion and thought it through, they let their emotions do their thinking. Hopefully, this will provide some food for thought for folks who never really were interested in economics, but this C-19 crisis is an excellent course lesson in free market economics vs socialism.

Sometimes, the assumed problem is actually the solution, and we actually make the problem worse with our solutions;

This focus on price gouging is the perfect example of making a catastrophically stupid mistake by way of socialism.

What a completely idiotic thing to do.

First of all, it is a waste of government time and resources. Secondly, it is criminalizing something that is not criminal, and third of all, it guarantees that shortages will remain and be extended indefinitely.

It make the shortages worse, not better.

This is the universal error made by all big government socialists in every crisis. When I say "socialists", I include Republicans, who are just "socialism lite".

Look, if you have facemasks that normally sell for $1, and people are willing to pay $10 for them, you don't fucking go after the person selling them for $10!! You let them make $10 a mask, and everyone everywhere who has masks to sell will put them on the market, or ship them from wherever they are to wherever they are needed, and make them as fast as they can, and it will be done at lightning speed to take advantage of the demand!

BUT...if you shut down and prosecute people selling masks for $10, there is absolutely no incentive for people who have them to make them available, especially if making them available incurs costs like transportation that actually reduces profits.

Where shortages are a problem, price gouging is the SOLUTION! It signals the market to "MAKE THESE AVAILABLE NOW AND YOU WILL MAKE MONEY!"

Fundamental economics. Price signals are how the market communicates and coordinates supply vs demand.

By suppressing the price forcibly, you are suppressing the supply exactly when you need it the most.

This is a classic big government mistake that makes problems worse, not better.

It really is too bad we don't live in a country with free markets. This might have never happened. I'm always blown away when socialists try and explain to me why free markets are bad.

My wife got lucky and found a 12 pack of TP at a Walmart of all places.

I was at Lowes last Sunday (im Marion) and they had paper towels out the ying yang. Limit 1 per and they were sticking to it.

I have to believe that stocks will come back soon, unless the market is being suppressed, which is possible.
