    Biden is to blame for supply chain shortages? Because even the linked article says that's the reason for the inflation.

    And in addition to the inflation, we are also seeing the largest rise in wages. Considering we saw deflation last year, overall, things aren't bad. We'll see what the holiday season brings us, because more supply chain shortages could bring more inflation. But then, higher demand might also mean more jobs, and higher wages.

    Title of thread should be Trumpflation from screwing up pandemic response and poisoning the well on rational actions.

    What a ridiculous question. No money is needed since we were told it wouldn’t cost anything. Thanks again Joe

    I don’t know the answer to your question and whether it has merit, but if fiscal responsibility isn’t an issue when it comes from the side you voted for, than as a matter of principle, you shouldn’t use it as a criticism when its coming from the side you didn’t vote for.

    If you value fiscal responsibility, be consistent.

    Biden needs to order those Chinese slaves back to work!

    Seriously though, this supply chain stuff is going to get messy. I see all the car dealerships low on cars (fortunately we traded in 2 when they were having covid panic deals last year, would have been completely screwed if we waited until this year instead taking the deals). But the chip shortage there seems to not be getting better. It’s weird how long this chip issue has persisted in autos in particular (Apple and Google on the other hand seem to have no issue getting chips).

    Saw a thing that Nike and Under Armor might start running out of shoes and apparel products by the holidays. Reason? The U.S. consumer demand is strong. But the Delta wave has hit Vietnam and Bangladesh particularly hard, and all their plants there have been effectively shut for months due to COVID. So what is being sold now is stuff in the pipeline through the supply chain months ago, but once that’s sold through to consumers there will be major lags to deliver new products and it will likely not come soon enough, including having to work through a period of effectively zero production. While we have our own issues with truck driver shortages and whatnot, a lot of this stuff is still being driven by COVID reality, overseas factories being shut down.

    How do you propose that Moderators manage this request of yours? That seems like a lot of extra work for them, without much rewards. If the person that disagrees with our posts and has something to add, they would reply.

    I feel a dislike it bacon allows a user to disagree with our statement, without derailing the topic of the thread.

    If we find drive by posters that don't regularly post in Too Hot we can remove the ratings and/or remove their ability to give ratings. If someone is a regular poster in too hot, then their ratings are okay unless they are stalking a particular poster, giving every post from a poster a dislike or disagree.

    I have a stalker who never posts here. But I don't mind. It gives him an outlet that he probably needs without having to try to (poorly) argue his point. :)

    Funny that the snowflakes concerned about fly by negative ratings are some of the worst offenders. That's the problem with the "everyone gets a trophy" mentality.

    It would appear that several posters are unaware of the difference between cost-push and demand-pull inflation. End result is the same for different reasons.

    The question is, if supply chain is causing a shortage at a time where domestically, we have an increase in demand, what can be done? We could bring manufacturing back to the states, but that's a temporary solution that in the long term, would probably cost more money. Need to build or retrofit buildings, plus hire and train staff. And by the time this was accomplished, the overseas factories will likely be back in production, and producing at a cheaper rate. And cheaper is why companies like Nike produce their stuff overseas.

    If you want to pin this problem on Biden, what do you think Trump would have or could have done any differently? Maybe send these countries shut down by COVID big shipments of UV lights and bleach?

    I would suggest get your holiday shopping done early this year. Because in reality, there isn't much more we can do.

    It would have to be corporate based, so it aint gonna happen, but it would be nice to bring some of the textile jobs back. Air Jerdons by Schmike made in Durham North Carolina. Who's in?
