CPS mass group buy?

Post by peter cornbriar » Sun Aug 12, 2018 5:52 pm

For your review:

Given the FDA and their "we know what's best for you,wankers", attitudes toward tobacco,has the idea been brought up for CPS members to pool their resources and consider buying out the blends,(most popular), among members AND that are definitely disappearing? < OK, no aros >
As in, let's buy 100 tins of X, or 20 pounds of Y brand?
I'm serious ,CPS becomes the big time buyer for disappearing brands.

Yes, I can think of a thousand ways to make this pipe dream go away- but,but,butt ... and,and,you see... yadda,yadda,yadda -> und their goes another blend down the FDA toilet.

To show I'm serious I'll put up $500 U.S.Dollars, no $1000 U.S.Dollars to make that first buy happen.
I can put in a little spare change; someone,(or some people) will have to do the logistical leg work,someone or persons will have to be the buyer(s), some will have to warehouse, and so on. I'm thinking selling what is purchased at cost,plus shipping. Oh no,sounds like the makings of a business :signofcross:

Now would be a good time to volunteer your/our skills for such a thing to happen. Or we can just fondly look back at the lost blends while we kick ourselves in the ass.

Show me how this will work with honor and parity, (OK CPS JDs and Esquires, time to shine!), and the 100 C-notes could become seed money to save what's left of the endangered blends.

P.M. me if you think I'm full of fecal matter.

Did I say 100 C-notes? I meant 10 C-notes, but judging with what response this thread has,I doubt many saw the typo.
I suppose the tobacco prophets, proven correct, have already stored up their favorite blends before their favorite blends got killed by FDA.
That's big government for 'ya.

Even if this was feasible, it's about a year or two too late to attract my interest. McClelland is gone, just for starters. Not to mention that my cellar is stocked up bigger than it really needs to be already, from buying so-called doomed blends over the past year or so.

And besides, I don't know you. And what if this is really a scam? You see? When you get to be my age, your faith in man diminishes a bit. But, regardless, I wish you the very best in your endeavors.

I already stocked up on more tobacco than I can smoke during the previous scares.

I don't think we need to organize ourselves in order to buy too much tobacco. TAD happens.

Its a good idea and a generous offer of $$ but like S&S and Del, I have stocked up more than I can use in my lifetime. I would also wonder about the issues legal, regulatory and others, with opening up a club tobacco store. I also know that deciding the shape for the pipe of the year is a process...what would the discussion surrounding the list of tobaccos to buy look like?

Woowww, looks like some serious CPS members have already stocked up for the Tabakocalypse! I would think much more than the three that commented here have stored up vast quantities of Tabak up in their cellars/mancaves/bunkers, proly enouph to open their own shops :lol:

Note to self: Do NOT disappear from Forums whose main topic concerns Big Government taking what is good,legal and fun, and regulating such to death.
Squirt gun Forums: My name is Peter,glad to be here,what's up?

Barring the 55cents/ounce baccy penalty, I'm glad to live in Penn's Woods and feel for Marylanders, DCites, New Yorkers, etc.Come to Penn's Woods,where the state budget often gets approved when the next one is due...

Can't help but thinking a black market for baccy will spring up like PA pols springing up for more taxes.

Its not you per se but in the past there have been guys in the past that would pop up take advantage of the generosity of the brethren here and disappeared.

You're the third person on here in less than two weeks to take offense to something I very innocently said. Maybe I best go down to a town, get outta these mountains.

Like I said before, I wish you the very best in your endeavors.

I hope you don't take offense. I sure nothing personal was intended. But you were talking $500 then $1000. This is pretty big money to most of us. It would take King Solomon to manage this fairly.

It was a nifty idea.... maybe not a practical one to pursue, but still a pretty nifty idea.

Keep on brainstorming. Breathe new life into this stodgy old corner of the Internet!

Please “indulge” me.

“Mass purchases” were the reason for the Reformation.

If you want to participate, tack your order form to the church door (95 item limit) and we’ll still be arguing about this in 500 years.
