Weld County, CO


Business last night took me to a newer subdivision near Milliken, CO.

Driving down the streets around 1900 hours, I noticed one pickup truck after another in the driveways. Probably 40% of the vehicles were pickups.

The homes in this subdivision are no more than eight years old. Selling price, new, for these homes, was under $200,000. Most residents are in their late 30’s.

Sorry, nothing profound in this post, just observations. My guess is many of the families depend on the petroleum industry for part of their income. Probably most households have both adults working.

My part time gig is contacting people who are behind on their mortgages. Business has been slow due to COVID forbearances. That will probably change with a double whammy of the Greenie’s war on oil and the SloJo/Ho war on the economy.

The prospect saddens me. The folks living in that subdivision will soon see their American dream become a nightmare.

That they will, and they will wonder what happened... sigh

We can see it coming. Maybe some of them, too. You still see Trump campaign signs all over this neighborhood.

Just hope the people living there aren't in way over their heads, and living paycheck-to-paycheck!

Most likely, judging by the vehicles in their driveways. Three vehicles, all relative new.

That's scary, especially given the war on oil/lng in our own country. And it's especially scary because the psychopaths in suits who rule us clearly don't give a damn about the people.

I could go on... but won't.

Their hypocrisy, lying, and not caring is outrageous.
