    Ron Swanson's Plan For The Bacon Shortage*Video
    Best to store up
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

        Bacon has already gone up here so I'm focussing on pork roasts at the moment. With the current sale price of 0.99$ per pound, buying next month's pork will likely save me at least 100$. Which I will spend on bacon.

          There are Federal Anti-Hoarding laws.

          The government forced it's population to ration during WWII, and it will do so again.

          Just wait until the Federal government's price controls start kicking in. It always happens.

          Politicians always have to appear as if they are coming to the rescue to save the people from the perils of the free-market. And they always make things worse.

            Canadian. The central government holds like no power here because people from Ontario (where it's based) are wimpy little bitches who can't hold the respect of the rest of the country.

              Yeah, the US just slipped down to 18th place in the economic freedom list[1]. Canada is still holding its own.

              I just hope Canada doesn't follow our lead, because I will need someplace close by to escape to when jet fuel is too expensive for 99% of Americans and the government is building walls to try and prevent the American prisoners from escaping starvation and slavery in the US.

                Lots of room up here and I'd be happy to head to colder parts to make room for you guys. And I think I just lived up to every Canadian stereotype in one sentence.

                  Oh and again, no chance of the government getting more power. If they had any sort of competence they'd have cracked down on the Atlantic provinces years ago.

                    Canadians to being hoarding Canadian bacon?
                    Canadian bacon won't run out, but will cost more | CP24.com
                    The threat of a shortage sparked a frenzy online, with many posting tongue-in-cheek messages of distress.
                    "Who wants to start hoarding bacon with me?" one read.

                      I haven't eaten bacon in years. I'm so ashamed.

                            Yes, but the fed'l min wage in 1962 was $1.15, so the min wage worker had to work 41 min to buy that pound.

                            At $7.25 min wage, s/he now has to work 39 min.

                            I didn't do the taxes on those wages, so those are gross wages, so I'm sure my numbers are only a ball park figure.
