Mountain Don’t: Kentucky Couple Has Meltdown After Being Prevented From Mass Purchase Of Mountain Dew

The video below shows just how intense some panic buying has become in some stores as demonstrated by a Kentucky couple who was prevented from buying 23 cases of Mountain Dew with 552 individual cans.

The man ends up denouncing the cashier (who really does not need this) as a liar for refusing to allow him to load his car. The video shows him yelling “A straight up lie. What a liar! You’re such a liar. … You just told me right now that I could go outside and come back in and get the drinks.”

Another couple in Vancouver succeeded in the early days of the pandemic in buying the entire meat section of their local store — only now to complain of death threats.

Now back to Mountain Dew. The clerk may have protected the couple of certain death — not due to the pandemic but caloric implications. A can of Mountain Dew has 170 calories a pop. Thus, the couples was carting away 93,840 calories with zero nutritional benefits.

If some doctors are correct, the impact on one’s liver is scarier than the obesity danger. Such drinks has also been linked to diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

      1. I have more than just USLawReview if anyone needs them, some ppl need both visual and auditory learning, usually a whiteboard with some examples or projector you can write on.

      2. Actually, just realized, some of the Servitude lecture may be offensive to some people, who may be more sensitive than others, but USLawReview has others videos on Present Estates, Future Estates, the Recording Statute.

  1. Like Mtn Dew is a necessity? The store people were rude? These two were just being anal sphincters and management should have thrown their big butts out of the store for creating a public disturbance.

  2. Now you know why the American Founders established a restricted-vote republic, distinctly not a one man, one vote democrazy.

    These parasites vote.

    If parasites vote, parasites get into office.

    America is the land of the “free stuff” and the home of the parasites because parasites are allowed to vote.

  3. mountain dew is gross. sugary pop is gross. it makes people very fat and sick. those people are probably diabetics and should be home exercising and getting off the sugar habit

    its a good thing i was not there I would have been tempted to tell them to stfu and move out. so far, I have been able to keep my own mouth shut entirely in public. its important to keep your cool especially when others dont.

    but its hard. one reason i am avoiding public in addition to social distancing is that I find myself very testy. this would have really annoyed me in person

    but if i threw a fat guy like that down with a foot sweep or trip, although it would be a good lesson for him, he might break his skull on the pavement and die and then somebody might catch my plates and i could end up in jail. so i would not do that and i would avoid putting myself in the tempting circumstances to do it and teach the bully a lesson

    let me tell you, you don’t want to be in jail when a respiratory pandemic breaks out.

  4. “A Demonstration of the Mentality of Contemporary Voters in Once-Great America”

    Restricted-vote democracy originated in Greece, was perpetuated by Rome and perfected by the American Founders as a “republic.”

    To vote in America in 1789, citizens generally must have been: Male, European, Age 21, Net Worth of 50 lbs. Sterling or 50 acres.

    Never did the Framers of the Constitution intend for the “poor” et al. to vote. The American Founders intended for the vote to be restricted in perpetuity.

    “The true reason (says Blackstone) of requiring any qualification, with regard to property in voters, is to exclude such persons, as are in so mean a situation, that they are esteemed to have no will of their own.”

    “If it were probable that every man would give his vote freely, and without influence of any kind, then, upon the true theory and genuine principles of liberty, every member of the community, however poor, should have a vote… But since that can hardly be expected, in persons of indigent fortunes, or such as are under the immediate dominion of others, all popular states have been obliged to establish certain qualifications, whereby, some who are suspected to have no will of their own, are excluded from voting; in order to set other individuals, whose wills may be supposed independent, more thoroughly upon a level with each other.”

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

  5. Nobody looks good in this story.Nothing illegal about buying stupid amounts of mountain dew….Love the haters making this about Trump. keep it up, between this and Pelosi playing games instead of helping Americans the dems are ensuring Trump’s re-election and have severely damaged their brand.

  6. Not sure, but good chance they are on welfare, food stamps, medicare, medicaid, Social Security disability.

    1. Not sure, but good chance they are on welfare, food stamps, medicare, medicaid, Social Security disability.

      Kentucky has no general relief program. Single adults and two-parent families collecting TANF are to be found, but the number of adults collecting benefits in such arrangements amounts to about 0.2% of the adult population nationally.

      They’d only be on Medicare and Medicaid simultaneouly were they nursing home residents. They’re not.

      They’re too young for Medicare unless they’ve been adjudicated as disabled. That’s a possibility, given the mission creep of disability programs, but not something you’d assume. The number of non-elderly adults and their dependents receiving Social Security Disability or SSI amounts to just a shade north of 4% of the population. The median age of Social Security Disability primary beneficiaries is around 55. SSI may skew younger, but younger SSI beneficiares were commonly awarded it for intellectual deficiencies, which would commonly preclude them driving a vehicle. They’re too young and the man too articulate for one to assume they’re disability beneficiaries (or, by extension, Medicare beneficiaries).

      About 12% of the population was enrolled in SNAP (ne Food Stamps) as of November 2019. It’s about the same in Kentucky. Among non-hispanic whites, the share would likely be lower, perhaps 9.5% in Kentucky.

      About 30% of Kentucky’s population is enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP and not resident of a nursing home. That they’re enrolled in Medicaid actually might be a reasonable wager.

  7. From the looks of them, they’ve already consumed FAR too many calories. Make them buy water instead of Mountain Dew.

    1. “Make them buy water instead of Mountain Dew.”

      You’re such a good little communist. You support government mandated purchasing of a product whether the buyer wants it or not. You must love Obamacare.

  8. Enough sugar in that Mountain Dew to make any concerns about sheltering in place pale in comparison. The store clerk should’ve slapped a hazardous waste label on those cases.

  9. A 12 ounce can of Mountain Dew provides 46.2 grams of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). The World Health Organization recommends that an adult ingest a maximum of 25 grams of HCFS daily. Extensive research (by mostly overseas scientists) reveal that HFCS negatively affects the digestive and nerve functions

    Perhaps, however, this explains the couple’s behavior:

  10. If these two buffalo’s think that caffeinated sugar soda is going to get them thru a pandemic, then let them be. When the buzzards start circling their single wide sewer hut, then just bulldoze the entire thing under. You’ll be doing society a favor, seriously.

    1. It doesn’t, and they’re not.

      About 50% of the ‘health care’ expenditure is accounted for by the situations of 10% of the individuals in this country. So, 45.5% of the expenditures on ‘health care and social assistance’ is accounted for by the care of this subpopulation over and above the baseline of what the rest receive. That’s around $1.3 trillion in gross revenues. About 38% of that is allocated to nursing homes and other ‘social assistance’. About 6% is allocated to cancer treatments. Another 2% is allocated to kidney dialysis. Another 10% is attributable to general aging. These people are not nursing home residents, they’re not 70 years old, and there’s no particular reason to believe they have kidney disease or cancer.

  11. The a$$hat hoarders are getting to be a true irritant. I can see hoarding if you’re anxious you’ll be quarantined and unable to purchase groceries, but that’s not a staple. (And some of the staples being cleaned out are highly perishable dairy products).

    Our local Safeway tells us they haven’t received a shipment of paper products in five days, so there are supply chain bottlenecks as well.

    1. My grocery store syas they restock the shelves every night and first thing every morning people show up and hoard a few products. So there is no supply issue at all.

    1. I’m not sure why you felt compelled to drag Trump into this, but considering this took place in Kentucky, it’s a safe bet they are Trump supporters.
