Crisis in the Heartland...

Just saw the store closing list for Starbucks..and I am distressed as 1/2 of all the Starbucks in this part of Iowa - Yep according to the list

9644 LINDALE MALL 4444 FIRST AVE NE CEDAR RAPIDS IA
8688 CORAL RIDGE MALL 1451 CORAL RIDGE AVE CORALVILLE IA

are being closed. The first one is like 300 yds from where I type this missive...

The gas price thingy has now gone too far...people are choosing to drink substandard stale coffee instead of a quality brew in order to pay for gas or to keep the bank from foreclosing..

If you think about this is plainly un-American..whats next -savings accounts...or actually paying cash for things..

Our economy is doomed if either of those things happen and you know it - now go out there and go further into debt will you..

Oh and God bless America!
