Where can you stop, but can’t really shop? Our reporter walks past empty shelves in New York.

The #coronavirus has caused shoppers to stock up on various items like cleaning supplies, water and toilet paper.

Empty shelves in grocery stores remind me of Castro's Cuba, with Trump playing the part of a dictator, claiming that everything is plentiful and tremendously fine. As a result, fear contagion over the pandemic appears to be spreading faster than the #Coronavirus is transmitted.

A word to the wise, If you're going to stock up on goods to limit your time out your home, please be considerate of other shoppers who may not have been able to buy yer. Please, folks cannot walk into a market to find empty shelves of food while you have more than what you really need.

If you're one of the shoppers responsible for contributing to this state of affairs you should be ashamed of yourself. These empty shelves should concern everyone. Because so many people have lost the ability to think for themselves and be rational. Yes, there are too many stupid, selfish people out there that do not have the ability to understand what they are doing.

Finally, why are, there are some who will resell these items at jacked-up prices to rip off their fellow man? Judgment day will come to all you greedy, self-absorbed idiots sitting at home with excessive amounts of supplies. Some supermarkets are offering senior-only hours during the #coronavirus pandemic.
