Pork Lips Now!

Once upon a time, towns had a "downtown."

It was occupied with "mom and pop" stores that were (more often than not) owned and operated by a single family.

My mom and dad ran a general store in a resort town. "Low Prices are Born Here and Raised Elsewhere."

Then a mall opened - with Safeway being the Anchor. Dad retired.

Mom worked for a couple more years, closed the general store, and retired. That was 50 years ago.

I went to college. I graduated in 4 years (not having the means to take the six-year plan). I got a Standard Secondary Teaching Credential (my grad year being financed by a scholarship).

That was then, this is now.

As up to 1/3 of the malls in America will close in the next 10 years, it's simply time for people to "skill-up."

Students are flocking into programs to “skill up” in pursuit of lucrative jobs. Community Colleges Are New Gateways to Hot Cyber-Space Jobs...

Oh, them Dems. Better KILL that program so the rich (0.1%) can get a tax cut.

The WalMart career people can't see it.

Walmart announced Friday that is closing 269 stores worldwide as it sharpens its focus on its e-commerce business.

Face it. The people who voted for Trump are simply too dumb to employ! (pun - simply + dumb)

Trump’s Housing Cuts Spare the One Program He Profits From

President Trump’s budget calls for sharply reducing funding for programs that shelter the poor and combat homelessness — with a notable exception: It leaves intact a type of federal housing subsidy that is paid directly to private landlords.

One of those landlords is Trump himself, who earns millions of dollars each year as a part-owner of Starrett City, the nation’s largest subsidized housing complex. Daddy left it to him - and his siblings - in the Last Will and Testament.

Trump also owns large chunks of "commercial space."

And THAT could lead to larger drops in his income.
