Other than the gulags, what the Soviet Union was perhaps known best for were its lines of subjects stretching around blocks, waiting for rationed goods that were never available in the quantities in which they were needed, much less wanted by the subjects of the Evil Empire.
Now that rationing and those lines might be coming to America; the DC mayor is calling for citizens of the district to engage in “voluntary rationing.”
Yes, really, that was announced on Twitter, where the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management account said “If you’re hitting the grocery store to prepare for winter weather, please just buy what you need and leave some for others! You may have noticed empty shelves in some stores due to national supply chain issues, but there is no need to buy more than you normally would.”

Perhaps Klaus Schwab and the rest of the Great Reset crowd can change their slogan from “you’ll own nothing and be happy” to “you’ll wait in a Soviet-style bread line for hours in the bitter cold to get your bowl of beet soup and moldy bread and be happy.”
And, as the Conservative Treehouse says about the issue, after this “voluntary rationing” is over, not-so-voluntary rationing might follow and with it might come “anti-hoarder sentiment”:
For those of you who have prepared it is wise to remember the advice that always accompanies the final stages of preparation. Once you are prepared, shut up, zip it, run silent and run deep.
The reason is simple comrades, when the “voluntary rationing” phase concludes, those who have prepared are quickly cast as ‘hoarders” and targeted by those who created the desperation. It has always been thus.
In any case, the comments to the announcement on Twitter were hilarious. With one on Bidenzuela being perhaps the best:

Another went ahead and made fun of both Brandon and Psaki’s margarita comment, saying “George Orwell’s Ministry of Love wants to remind you to limit the number of groceries you buy -if you find any. Oh, and if your store shelves are empty, have a margarita!!!”

In any case, it’s clear that Mayor Muriel Bowser’s new “voluntary rationing” plan isn’t a smashing hit with a citizenry that’s seen some of the strictest lockdown rules in the nation and already has to deal with high prices.
Further, these empty shelves and “voluntary rationing” pleas are the exact opposite of what Brandon himself said during his press conference, when he said:
“Notwithstanding the recent storms that have impacted many parts of our country, the share of goods in stock at stores is 89% now, which is barely changed from the 91% before the pandemic. I often see empty shelves being shown on television. 89% are fully, which is only a few points below what it was before the pandemic.”
I guess that 11% of stores that are understocked just happen to be the ones that people go to and need food from; otherwise, no rationing would be called for, much less necessary. This isn’t exactly World War II, after all.
