The problem with politicians is that they are elected not by the people who read the papers but by the ones that wipe their asses with it.

A reality that fit the bill in this case. Literally.

So, if they order 50 million rolls, what will that do to our supply in the US? Run! To the store NOW! Gotta get 50 rolls of TP just in case.

My grandfather suggested that there were times during WWII that toilet paper could be a bit difficult to come by locally.

Well said!

Venzuelans elected their crap socialist government so it's fitting they get their hands dirty.

When Barack Hussein Obama was first elected one of our first preps was a 4 year supply of TP. No ****.
