This shows more than anything the inability of the system to adapt to problems. The ships just sit there unable to unload in a chokepoint. Nobody gets paid, nor should they be. The politicians are useless, the lawyers collect nothing and the business people go bankrupt. The ship captains should head for mid ocean and dump the thousands of containers overboard. Let California clean up the mess when they float onto the beaches. The first rule of business is you don’t do business with idiots. California has left the country behind. Goodbye idiots. Solve your own problems. Its like the Russians trying to transport gas thru Ukraine. The pirates want too damn much of it.
