It’s been a trip, but it’s time to put the site to bed. It was nice, for a while, being able to have some of my favorite minds on the internet to talk to, again. Thanks especially to my friends and commenters who stuck it out, I love each and every one of you.  Special shout outs to Shohanna, Noti, Kreskin, Dosido, Edgar, Flora, Hypno, Thud and anyone else I’ve missed, at this early hour, it’s been my privilege.

And most thanks of all to you, 17, I couldn’t have done it without you, buddy!

May good links always come your way, and don’t forget to stay Progressive!

Looks like its time to give it another go. I'll try to put something up daily, it may be a link to a single article or a…

Demand, Stagnation in the Economy and the Vanishing Middle-Class

UnkaWillbur - May 21, 2017

Over at The Institute for New Economic Thinking, Servaas Storm brings us a fine analysis of the causes and motivations for the stagnation in the eonomy, the…

    This is a sad link posting. Good luck Unka and thanks for the good times here.

    • kreskin

      Homeless again .

  • kreskin

    Thanks , Unka . Good job . We’re on the same wave length , comrade.

  • FaunaAndFlora

    Best wishes, Unka. Hope you drop in at FLC sometimes. Take care.

    Damn.

  • towerofbabel

    Unka! Sad news but understandable. The internet is fickle.
    Thank you for all of the great links and good times.
    I hope you stay with us elsewhere, like FLC?

  • 17

    Unka, you took me aboard when it seemed like the entire internet threw me over the side. I never forgot that, and never will. Thank you, brother. Please come see us at FLC.

    • Dosido3

      Same. What a bond we banned berners share.

  • Dosido3

    Unka, you gave us a home. You let us sleep on your couch and we cleaned out your fridge. Partied all night when you had to go to work the next morning. The air BNB of the Internet. Hope you will hunt us gypsies down and drop in unannounced once in a while. We owe you, my friend. ❤️

    ETA. Ugh. Just watched the clip! Now I’m ugly crying like Hobbit second from left. Blergh, sniffle…

    I never thought it appropriate to plug a blog on another’s blog, but under the circumstances I don’t think Unka will mind. Anyone here who wishes to join us at FLC is certainly welcome.

      Now that’s it’s closed, anything goes! I went Stairway and Freebird on your ass! *evil laugh*. You may take your revenge at FLC. I’ll see you (and Unka) there!

  • Shohanna

    I hate to see it close Unka, but I understand! Love you and please don’t be a stranger at FLC. *hugs* Was a pleasure to be here and to be involved. 😀

  • Shaykayvah

    So long all, hope for peace.

  • Pat_Shackleford

    This kinda felt like the cool little back alley head-shop/record-store from long ago. Good luck to ya!

  • Edwin

    Well, you had a pretty good run. Thanks for doing it, Unka. I always liked our little corner here.

  • thud

    Aw SHUCKS! Well I guess I’ll have to mend some fences over at BB! Yes is a joke. I only go there to taunt them. But it looks like there may be much hilarity watching them in the near future. Take care Unka. I wish I’d started dropping in here sooner than I did. You done GOOD!

    I can’t thank you enough, Unka. I mean that from the bottom of my pig heart. :@)

    Good luck to you and I hope we run into each other some day. (((hugs)))

    Oink!

  • all_hail_the_hypno_toad

    Aw, sorry I haven’t had enough time to hang out. I hope the new job is what’s keeping you busy.

  • MeanValueTheorem

    Damn! Thanks to you and 17 for all your work.

    Hope to see you around!

  • SmotPoker

    Been gone for a bit, but back just in time to say farewell I guess. It has been a trip, and it’s been a fun one.

    • 17

      We’ve been wondering where you’ve been. Hope you’re well. Come on over and join us please.

        I tend to withdraw from society a few times a year for no damn reason. It’s a problem I’m working on…

        • 17

          I’m looking forward to summer so I can back off some myself.

          • SmotPoker

            Well, to be fair, I don’t do it on purpose. It just happens. I actually feel awful for doing it to people, I just disappear for months at a time only to reappear without notice. I do apologize.

          • 17

            None necessary.

          • Ann Watson

            Your reappearance is always welcome. ; )

  • Ann Watson

    Unka!
    Sad to see you go. I feel a song coming on but I’ll refrain. ; )
    All the best whatever you do and hope to see you again.

  • Unka thanks so much! I’ve missed you. Now I will only miss you more.

    Good luck and best wishes♡
