Only an imbecile would believe the economy is getting better
I am on Long Island for the past 2 weeks and what i found is that roughly every third store front says for lease or rent. Commercial building are for sale as well as tons of homes. 12 years ago when i left NY you had to wait for someone to die to find a rental. Now, rentals are everywhere. I local Diner was torn down and replaced with a JP Morgan Chase bank. A foodtown supermarket was converted to a CVS. All the Auto parts stores in the area are vacant. The taxes are sky high even after lowered assessments due to huge increases in the school tax portion of the tax bill. So even if you win your grievance your taxes are still rising. It is unbelievable how anyone in their right mind can't see what is going on. We are so doomed. Buy Gold.
Forgot to mention the insane prices for everything. $11.00 for a pack of smokes. All the food items are much higher than in NC. I am getting to meet my new nieghbors and the old retired fella across the street told me they cut his pension in half and now is working part time at his old job as a machinist to make ends meet. I had to move back to Long Island for family reasons, my mom is very ill and needs special care. Anyway, we are doomed. Buy Gold.
