Traders Village a flea-market chain that boasts the largest flea-market in the world in Houston has been building a new location in San Antone.
Scuttlebutt has it that Traders Village management is deep-sixing the project due to problems with the depression. Vendors were complaining at another flea-market that they had given deposits for spaces at Traders Village and were refused a refund. Other signs are obvious. My neighbor has been working less and less hours, now down to three and a half days a week. I would go to the grocery store six months ago and see almost everyone with a full cart.
Lately the majority of shoppers have four or five items only, like maybe spending under ten bucks each. I heard today the powers that be are planning to charge farmers when rain falls on their crops. Gasoline prices are on the rise, unusual as the prices customarily go up in June and fall in autumn. The 23 billion “jobs bill”for police and teachers was the biggest red flag, pumping up that dead horse just to beat it back down again. An un-policed city and teacher-less schools are a dead giveaway that a nation is belly up, we cant have that.
The roads here are getting so bad I had to put ball-joints and struts on the family car. News today talked of kids having to take toilet paper to school, a custom I learned of in Mexico. If any of yall have any similar horror stories of a good buck gone bad please relate down under the cyber-fold. Waiting for the next shoe to drop in Texas…….Korn out.
