It might be wise to start the shopping early this year with a pending railroad strike early in December? This was on CNBC today:

“Four rail unions have aligned on a potential national strike date of Dec. 9, with the Signalmen’s union agreeing to move back its date in coordination with other unions that rejected the labor deal.

Railroads begin preparing for a strike seven days ahead of that date.

Chemicals take priority in rail strike preps, with transport of this sensitive cargo stopped 96 hours before a strike.

The railroad industry expects economy damage of $2 billion per day; other industry groups have warned of a direct hit to GDP and inflation increase.”

Thanks Joe Biden, I thought you had this FIXED? Much like all of your fixes it was all an illusion just like that Student Loan Debt Forgiveness, is unconstitutional and it ain’t happening! [thumbdown][censored][thumbdown][ohmy] Deaton
