    Talked to an aquaintance I haven't seen for some time, he told me the gov now has hoarding laws.

    In other words, it's against the law to 'hoard.' Whatever that means.


    Does anyone know anything about this? Is this Federal, or state to state?

    I had this handy.
    It's hard to get everything that has been enacted since 2001.

    No offence was taken. I was just committing back that it is very hard to find all the new rules and regs. the way they have been spread around over the last few years. Should be able to find in one place but two wide spread out I think to hide all the new laws.

    This junk again.

    One more time. A closed mouth gathers no government busybodies.

    A president can make an Executive Order decreeing anything he pleases anytime he please so there's no use in wringing your hands over this junk. If and when the deal ever goes down the government will do as it please just as it has always done. People will continue to store food against need just as they have always done.

    A closed mouth gathers no government busybodies.

    :p

    Me, I'm not hoarding, I performing scientific experiments on packaging techniques.

    or, Just stocking up for my new job as a Sumo wrestler!

    [reminds me of i think it was Dick Proenneke of "Alone in the Wilderness," who built a log cabin on national park land.
    when the ranger discovered it, the ranger said "we only gave you a permit for cutting firewood, not construction."
    "well, does it matter how I stack it? :p
    he got away with it.]

    Hoarding is buying up when in short supply more than needed at the time.

    Stocking your cellar and pantry is something else.

    Saving gas by not going to town. Some places if you do not stock up when you go to the city you will do with out. Little town where maybe I will move in time does not have things I need. When that long trip to city would have to stock up to have it. Buy on sales to save money. They are trying to get you to buy the stuff.

    I have a feeling that nobody is going to care when you bought something, only that you have more than they feel you should have, and are therefore hoarding.
