I don’t know what you are talking about Sam. Ghastly things firearms and ammo. I stock up on peace tea and good vibrations.Seriously mate! Who didn't see this coming? I started stocking up the day Donald Trump became President and not for any political or other reasons, I stocked up because I knew this crap would happen again.
We went through the same thing under President Obama and the only reason it happens is because some people in the shooting community believe the crap that's on the internet. There's also the fact that due to the virus, copper mining in Chile ground to a halt, it's the same with powders, a lot of our powders are imported from Europe and other far away places.
I didn't go out panic buying, if I was in town I'd grab a pound of powder, 1,000 primers and a couple of hundred bullets and any other bits I may have needed. I was looking around the other night and as you say, there isn't much out there, but it'll bounce back, it always does.
Always fun watching utopian visions smashing headlong into reality and the resultant shower of exploding shit. Problem is, those left to pick up the pieces and clean up the mess are rarely the proponents of those utopian visions.
Psychologist on BBC Radio 4 just (Monday 0845hrs), squarely blaming MSM Press photos and TV footage of queues at filling stations, for generating unnecessary panic buying.I was out yesterday and saw no signs of queuing around Glasgow but later I hear it mentioned on the news.
The process probably goes something like this;
Producer in London; "This is a potentially big story. We need to find out what is happening round the country."
PinL 'phones Provincial Reporter; "What's happening in your area?"
PRep; "Not a lot as far as I know."
PinL; "Get off your bum and get some footage!"
PRep finds a local filling station with half a dozen cars waiting, films it from a camera angle that makes it look dramatic, files it to London and goes back to sleep.
PinL assembles the best of the footage, gets it on the News and the next day there is a panic.
A bit like toilet rolls (but I think we should be seriously concerned about the Walnut situation).
Won't sell. "Man has good day at work" type sh1t. It would be interesting to see the relationship between MSM and some of the petrolium* delivery companies or garage forecourts.Psychologist on BBC Radio 4 just (Monday 0845hrs), squarely blaming MSM Press photos and TV footage of queues at filling stations, for generating unnecessary panic
His suggestion, is/was MSM should be publicising pictures of empty, normal functioning, filling station forecourts.
Some of the more interesting information within that article . . .
I definitely agree. Can you please supply three MSM headline or lead stories from the last month that are good news stories? I certainly cannot think of any off-hand.'Cos you're WRONG !! .
It is more than a little trite, to repeat the oft quoted phrase that "Only bad news sells" .
Sometimes . . . quite often . . . "good news" stories, can be appreciated and are welcome .
There isn't any today,this from oneI definitely agree. Can you please supply three MSM headline or lead stories from the last month that are good news stories? I certainly cannot think of any off-hand.
