Do you remember how optimistic there was last January? Many Americans were entirely convinced that really bright days were around the corner, but instead things have taken a dramatic turn in the dumpster over the past 9 months. The debacle in Afghanistan was the worst foreign policy embarrassment in modern American history, the Biden administration is trying to tackle an unprecedented crisis at our southern border, and how our politicians are handling the pandemic is causing extremely deep divisions. throughout our society. Furthermore, our economy is starting to collapse at a very basic level. On a widespread basis, goods don’t get to where they need to be when they need to be there, and services are often not available when people need them. Over time, the “malfunction” of our economy has spread and now the next mandates threaten to make matters worse.
Just look at the chaos that was caused in Florida on Sunday …
Southwest canceled 1,018 Sunday flights at 2 p.m. ET, according to FlightAware flight tracker. This is 28% of the airline’s scheduled flights and the highest of any US airline by a large margin.
American Airlines canceled 63 flights, or 2% of its operations, while Spirit Airlines canceled 32 flights, or 4% of its flights, according to FlightAware.
Overall, more than 1,800 flights were canceled over the weekend and Southwest is publicly blaming the problems of “weather challenges” …
“We experienced weather problems at our Florida airports at the start of the weekend, challenges that were compounded by unexpected air traffic control issues in the same region, which caused delays and required significant cancellations for us starting Friday night. “the spokesperson told FOX Business.
“We continued to work diligently throughout the weekend to restore our operation with the aim of repositioning the planes and crews to take care of our customers,” the spokesperson added. “With fewer frequencies between cities in our current schedule, recovery during operational challenges is more difficult and prolonged. We are working diligently to satisfy our customers as quickly as possible and are grateful for their patience. “
Obviously it is total and utter nonsense.
A large number of Southwest Florida pilots engaged in a “sickout” over the weekend to protest Southwest’s vaccine mandate, and apparently at least a few air traffic controllers joined them …
For the record, they are denying any kind of protest, but there are reports, citing aerial sources, that a huge “sickout” has subsided and the ripple effects are still being felt.
Regardless of what the truth is here … it’s screwing a lot of people and causing a lot of trouble. And, IF there is merit in the exhaustion speculation, it could also be a bad sign of what will happen in other industries that may try to enforce vaccines for employees.
As I write this article, there are rumors that American Airlines pilots are organizing similar efforts.
Good for them.
Indeed, we need brave people in every industry in America to start doing this sort of thing.
Perhaps if enough people stand up, those who are trying to impose these mandates will start to back down.
Right now, we are already facing the most epic labor shortage in US history and, as a result, economic activity is severely stalled. If millions of more skilled people are expelled from work in the coming months due to these absurd mandates, it will cause unprecedented chaos across America. A weekend of canceled flights might be bad, but that’s nothing compared to the complete and utter nightmare our society will face if all these mandates go through.
The military will also be deeply affected. On Sunday, it was reported that “hundreds of thousands” of our service members chose to resist the mandates …
Hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members remain unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Pentagon’s first compliance deadlines approach, with asymmetric rates between individual services and a spike in deaths among military reservists illustrating how the political division on strikes is filtered into a non-partisan force with univocal orders.
So what would it do to the state of our military if hundreds of thousands of military service members were expelled in the coming months?
This is a question we need to ask ourselves, because it appears that this is indeed what is going to happen.
On top of everything else, we are now facing a major global energy crisis …
Energy is so hard to come by right now that some Chinese provinces are rationing electricity, Europeans are paying sky-high prices for liquefied natural gas, power plants in India are running out of coal, and the average price of a day. gallon of regular gasoline in the United States on Friday stood at $ 3.25, up from $ 1.72 in April.
Most Americans may not realize it yet, but this is a really big deal.
There are more than 1.3 billion people living in India, and coal is so scarce that officials warn there could soon be widespread blackouts …
Just like Chinese authorities ordering energy companies to keep supplies at all costs, numerous power plants across India could be forced into continuous blackouts due to depleted coal stocks. A minister in the Indian capital New Delhi warned on Sunday that blackouts could rock the huge city in the next couple of days. But the nation’s capital is not alone in suffering from energy shortages: it unites two Indian states – Tamil Nadu and Odisha – who have warned of the growing possibility of blackouts due to dwindling coal stocks.
Other nations are facing similar problems. In fact, Lebanon has just emerged from a blackout that lasted about 24 hours …
Lebanon finally turned the lights back on some 24 hours after the country was plunged into total darkness due to fuel shortages.
The Mediterranean country is battling one of the worst economic crises on the planet since 1850 in the wake of last year’s devastating explosion that razed much of the capital Beirut to the ground.
If things are already that bad, how crazy will things be in the dead of winter when energy demand is at its peak?
People need to wake up, because the times we are moving in will be completely different from what we are used to.
It is not just the US economy that is crumbling. Literally, the economic infrastructure of the entire globe is falling apart and experts are warning that things will continue to collapse in the months to come.
Many of the things you’ve been warned about are starting to show right before our eyes, and this winter it looks like it’s going to be very dark indeed.
