It is Joe Biden’s Fault that there Isn’t .50 A.E. ammunition at Cabela’s: Democrat Party communist tampering destroys supply chains from eggs to ammunition

There is an old Ronald Reagan joke, which I will include with this article, that talks about how ridiculous buying a car in Russia was during the open days of communism. Because of the tight government controls on the means of production, the joke went that it took ten years to get on the waiting list to buy a car. But that a person would have to know whether the car would be ready in the afternoon or morning because the plumber was scheduled in the morning, which might pose a conflict. The essence of the story is that government tampering with the marketplace causes production delays, and no matter where in the world it is tried, communism and socialism slow down production. But wait, what about China, you might say, or Vietnam? They are very productive and are the fastest-growing economies in the world. Well, two things are happening there; first, they are very industrious people, not afraid of hard work in most Asian countries, and they have a lot of people to overwhelm the inefficiency of government bureaucracy. The other thing is that the World Economic Forum has artificially propped up all Asian countries through corporate manipulation, so the money they enjoy and investments they see coming in are a direct result of market tampering by hostile forces hell-bent on taking over the world. So the value of Chinese manufacturing at all levels is smoke and mirrors. Communism is the pick of the Desecrators of Davos investors at the World Economic Forum because they like it, and banks like centralized control. So despite the realities of President Reagan’s jokes about Russia, there has been a global push to outspend reality and force the world into communism anyway.   

And there is a reason those same forces felt they had to steal the American election, just as they did the one obviously in Brazil. The world is on fire, and there are protests everywhere, Paris, London, Mexico, and just about anywhere that large populations are struggling to reclaim their capitalism from global commitments from finance into socialism and outright communism. And Joe Biden represents the Democrat’s deep desire to install Chinese communism in America and to rot away Americans’ expectations about production and market value. Now we are seeing the effects of this Democrat Party push for Chinese-style communism everywhere, whether we are talking about baby formula, gas prices, or the latest crisis, the price of eggs. Something many of us take for granted, eggs, which are easy to get in large numbers in America, are now rising in price to dangerous levels because the Biden administration policies have tampered with the market to such an extent that they have interrupted production and delivery which can’t keep up with demand. But for me, this is a much more serious issue going much further than the price of eggs. I see the destruction of the Biden administration differently every time I go to Cabela’s to buy ammunition. I have had through Covid thousands of rounds of ammunition for my .50 A.E. Desert Eagle, which is my carry gun, and it has taken me a while to burn through them. It hasn’t been an issue in a few years, but I used to be able to go to Cabela’s in West Chester, Ohio, and buy all the .50 A.E. ammunition I could want. It was just as easy to buy .500 Magnum S&W ammunition, my other carry gun I take with me everywhere I go. But on this particular day, I couldn’t find them, so I asked the store clerk if they had any, and he just laughed as if what I had said was the funniest thing in the world. “I haven’t seen any of that kind of ammunition in over three years,” he said as if me asking for it was the most absurd thing in the world. 

Now, I can make all aspects of ammunition on my own. I don’t need an ammunition manufacturer to do it for me. Most of the time, ordering all the components, I can assemble my own ammunition by reloading at my home. But I could just as well do it in the middle of the woods with no power grid. The government has obviously done what it can’t do with gun laws; tamper with the supply of ammunition by making it hard for manufacturers to produce it, and they have tampered with the supply chain. The result is that Cabela’s, which is one of their core competencies, has had a hard time getting any ammunition. For a long time during Covid, they struggled to get some of the most common ammunition in the world, 9MM. As I looked at the shelves, I thought they had managed to get most ammunition from .22 through .45 caliber, and equally rifle ammunition as well. But the really big stuff, the exotic stuff I like to use, has dropped off the radar and is likely interrupted forever. You could tell by the way the clerk talked that he had already accepted the limits of global communism and had made himself a victim to those lowered expectations. Whereas, under President Trump, during the year of 2019, the year before Covid, I would have asked for .50 A.E. ammunition, and he would have proudly said something like, “right over, there are six boxes of 20. And if you want, you can get a free hamburger and a 2-litter of Coke for free if you buy five boxes today.” Excesses are expected in American culture, which makes things cheaper.

But for the global market tampering schemes of communists, they want what is happening at Cabela’s. They can’t pass laws to get rid of gun rights, but they can make it hard for people to get ammunition to use. So they have attacked that sector of the economy for personal activism. I’ll still shoot my guns, but they have made it harder and much more expensive to get, and the efforts have been on purpose, clearly. It’s part of the overall communist philosophy of why the Biden administration was put in place, to begin with. Unlike the store clerk at Cabela’s, I don’t accept these ridiculous restrictions that have been artificially imposed on us by out-of-control, stupid government and their tampering desires. I expect to live in a country where I can buy a chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A and stop by Cabela’s, which is right next door, and buy up several boxes of .50 caliber pistol ammunition all in about 10 minutes so I can get back to doing other things in my life rather than looking for ammunition. The real reason that communist countries have less productivity is that people waste time waiting on the government to do things, and that gives them less free time for personal pleasures. I don’t waste time in my life, so it is quite insulting to waste time looking for things like ammunition that should be easy and quick to get. It’s bad enough when these market restrictions start to emerge with common items like eggs. But you can best see the effects of globalism and the Biden administration’s communist philosophy on luxury items, which are always the first targets of attack by overly centralized governments. When the store clerk laughs at the assumption that we live in such a competent world that .50 caliber ammunition would just be sitting on the shelf, you know you have a big problem on the supply side of an economy. And it was made worse by government not by accident but by purposeful activism that is part of a global strategy. And it’s far worse than many people realize.
