Bidenflation: Another American Staple Is Disappearing Thanks To Joe

All across America today, families are being forced to make some frustrating choices thanks to the economic situation that we are currently enduring.

This, of course, with little more from the White House than a day-late, dollar-short admission just this week.

The Biden-flation crisis have weaseled its way into nearly all aspects of our lives as well, from gas prices to grocery store shelves, and now, even into the snack bar at the local movie theater.

While the big movies are back in theaters—Insider flags the coming Jurassic World: Dominion in particular—some other things are in short supply: among them, popcorn. So reports the Wall Street Journal, which talks to the head of Preferred Popcorn, which sources kernels from about 150 farmers. Norm Krug tells the Journal that he’s been forced to pay those farmers more to keep farming popcorn, as crops like soybeans become more lucrative for them (and don’t involve the use of the same costly fertilizers, which are just getting pricier due to the war in Ukraine).

Even with that higher pay, he fears the output won’t match that of previous years.

And it could get even worse.

But that’s just one issue: Another is having enough truckers to get the popcorn kernels where they need to go, and a third is the bags the popped corn comes in. It turns out the material that lines the bags in is in short supply, too, so much so that some theaters are opting to serve the snack in plastic and metal containers.

The Biden administration has been routinely criticized for their stark inability to get the economy under control, (despite having been in office for nearly 18 months now), and it could put even more pressure on the Democrats to perform in the 2022 midterm elections.
