On Main street, that great street, I just want to say, They do things they don’t do on Broadway

Another report from the deplorable economy.

I saw an excavator dig out of Chapter 11 with a half million dollar contract…

Two small firms were hiring last year at 14.00 an hour for entry trainees are now upping the wage to 19.00 just to get applicants.

Paydays are the day of smiles as checks get handed out and the amount that surprised earlier in the month is still there.

One business had me license them to work in the neighboring state. The Department of labor there was telling me they used to have one applicant a week from the neighboring state, it is now four or five a day.

A metals fab shop is putting a third shift on their laser lathe. All for work that is coming back from China.

All the halfway house felons are working two jobs and most are staying sober.

If it is not yet Morning in America, I can sure smell the coffee brewing.

  1. It’s good to hear first-hand reports from the front. You certainly won’t get them from the dishonest media fake news purveyors Democrat Party operatives. Call ’em what you like but news organizations is not accurate.

  2. We may have to return to the gatherings of owners at the local coffee shop on Fridays to compare notes, or the small town Chamber meetings to get our economic news.  When I started my  Advisory service I belonged to ten chambers of commerce and was pretty well wired into the local economy. BTW, the local COC is NOT the national COC politically or otherwise.

    Trumps trade team is thankfully composed of people who actually practiced trade , not just read about it. Our media is the business and economics stupid group I have ever seen, including the so called “business channels”.

    Yes.  The local Chamber is the deplorables economy.   The National Chamber is the guys that poured $150 million into Jeb’s campaign and who dropped the Boy Scouts like a hot potato at the first sign of trouble.

    This reminds me of the dichotomy between police leadership and beat cops. A couple of months ago I had breakfast with a bunch of mid-grade officers. They were all in favor of citizens having guns and most were Trump supporters. When I asked why police chiefs seem to always come out against gun ownership, they explained that chiefs are out of touch and not respected by rank-and-file. Notice also that the Broward Country Sheriff is a Hillary supporter.

    Police leadership mostly have masters degrees in Public Administration, which is one of those Leftist indoctrination departments.
