I will say the shortage is mostly due to hoarding but the supply is limited, so can’t be blamed all on hoarding.



Fake News!!!!!


There are over 100 plants in the USA producing the paper for your butt.


Come on people, why post stuff like this??

As an Airline pilot that travels the world for a living and one that owns a homes in WA, NY, FL, and Italy. I guess I am seeing things when I see empty shelves. Next time I won’t believe my lying eyes (which as of last FAA physical 3 months ago are still 20/20), I’ll just ask Mr. Wilson. My eyes may have been reprogrammed by the fake news media

Do tell us how you get cases of toilet paper past airport security?
Would not do much for your reputation.

Yes there are empty shelves in the USA. It's a result of over reaction, nothing to do with plants in China. There is plenty paper capacity in the USA.

What did you all do before pampers ? Gross but cloth diapers were not disposable.

You missed his point.

Someone posted a concern about shortages here in the USA. Retiring said - actually, it's not just the USA - it's a worldwide shortage. And he explained why it's a shortage in China.

With the run on toilet paper it is best to not let your subscription to The Daily Sun lapse.
