Alaska is kicking ass! Nothing like the lower 48.

If the lower 48 were kicking ass the Alaska way, the U.S. would be twice as bankrupt.

Re: Give us your field report on your local economy
north dakota too....

another state that opts out of the liberal mentality.

a few weeks ago i read about a surf shop in california that closed their doors after 50 some odd years... and moved to north dakota because of it's business-friendly environment.

Yeah... the surf's up in ND I heard. LOL.

Ever heard of something called internet shopping? It's a wonderful invention.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22116104


Yes I have heard of the internet. It's in ALL 50 States... including CA. So why move to ND to sell surfing shit on the internet... when they could have stayed in California and sold surfing shit there on the internet?

Oh wait... I get it. California isn't going to be around much longer... so they decided to get the fuck outta Dodge and move to higher ground.

Nevermind.

Re: Give us your field report on your local economy
Moreno Valley, California (about 70 miles east of Los Angeles): one store after another closed and shuttered at the once-thriving local two-storey shopping mall.

Home invasions, bank robberies and street assaults becoming common.

Schools whose students are 95% anchor babies and illegal aliens going bankrupt.

Also: UNBELIEVABLY long lines at least 30% composed of pregnant, flip-flop non-English-speaking Mexican peasant illegal aliens (including their huge broods of screaming, running, unsupervised offspring) at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Offices building pharmacy.

You say you're paying $500+/month out-of pocket for medical benefits with Kaiser,and your employer is paying even more than that? Don't be surprised when you can't get an appointment to see a specialist until months later because most of the appointment slots have already been taken by illegal aliens and their anchor babies.

Re: Give us your field report on your local economy
I live on the border of Nigrovia ( aka Detroit) and you haven't seen anything ! Nigrovia is in complete ruins so I wont even report on it; just watch the vice video on Liberia on You Tube to see what The D looks like now and btw, the vice channel on you tube shows real life documentaries, please check it out ( [link to www.youtube.com]

In the surrounding suburbs, I would estimate 3/4 of the businesses that have been established for more than 50 years have went under. I am talking about EVERY type of business, from bars, laundromats,shopping malls, restaurants,landscapers,,ho lee shit, it is in-comprehensible ! Houses I grew up in or lived in, restaurants I frequented, 2 colleges I attended have all disappeared ! Do you know what it feels like to have your history erased ? Unemployment is over 50% in the D and is probably 30% in the suburbs with most jobs paying less than 10$ per hour. All of the donkeys that worked at the autoplants that lost their jobs go on Social Security Disability after all of their gravy trains run out. That means 40% of the people are claiming to be crazy. Teens have been brainwashed into WANTING to live in a ghetto ! Scrappers are going crazy picking up junk out of the weekly garbage and people are flooding to garage sales to get items for resale. Houses in some cities have dropped so low that you can get into a fully functional house for 5-10k US and there are thousands of these homes. In Nigrovia, you can just move into a house as nobody is watching ; they are for sale if you are stupid for probably a couple hundred bucks for a good one, you just have to be able to keep it. All business is down except for some of the trendy restaurants; they are frequented by OLD MONEY ( retirees with money). Young people go to McD's. The local Air National Guard replaced their F-16's with A-10 Warthogs !!! I asked the base commander why, and he said that he almost got his head handed to him on a platter for asking that question ( ground fighting is what the A-10 is for). I could go on as it is bleak. Most of the anus publicus that live hear are complete fxcking morons that had it easy for 50 yrs and never went to school ( just got elitist factory jobs). They have degenerated into mind mush democrats with most of them displaying Obama signs on their lawns.

ANG converted to the A-10, interesting. I wonder how many other NG units have been converted to ground attack air craft?

Re: Give us your field report on your local economy
Just moved from central Arkansas to West TN. The difference in economy was a bit shocking as we had been struggling majorly in AR. There has not been much of any job growth in Central AR for the last few years. It even took me a month to get a part-time summer job to pay for school books. A lot of businesses are closing and not much new growth. We got to TN and business is booming! People here are happy and there are places to work everywhere from manufacturing,farming,hospitals,tons of retail and restaurant and construction. It was a breath of fresh air! However, we have heard that this city is the bankruptcy capital for the U.S. So maybe the truth is people are so happy here because they are living unrealistically on credit.

Re: Give us your field report on your local economy
Always been poor always will be poor.. and as such we always get by, and this is the *cough* so called rich Southern part of England. LOL

And by that I mean, most of the home bakers around here have a go at starting their own bakery, most home cooks have a go at starting their own cafe ect, so while business do go bust frequently there is always some one willing to give it a go.

I guess it helps that we don't have any of the big named brand businesses to crowd everyone else out, and while we are poor it's nice not to live in one of those big business cloned towns where every thing looks, smells and feels the same *shudder*

We get almost no government funding down here, which is probably why so many people have a go at starting and running their own businesses, and to be honest I don't think that is a bad thing really.

So I honestly don't expect things to get worse, even in a crash, but then again I don't expect anything to get better either even in a speedy recovery.
