CattleRest RV & Saloon
I received an email reply from another RV shop in Tucson that said they can not do a countertop replacement. They did suggest another shop. The fact that they responded is a good sign, I may ask them to do other work although they also said that they only do mobile RV service. I sent an email to the suggested shop but do not expect a reply and if I get one I expect them to say that they can not help.
I guess I need to ‘get with the program’ and join the consumer culture. Junk my old obsolete RV, take on multi thousands in debt and buy a new RV. That is the true American Way ‐ fixing stuff is so ‘old school’.

70% of America’s economy is generated in fewer than 500 counties; the other 2,500 counties are left with the remaining 30%. The nation’s productive capital is even more concentrated in a few hands and regions, and since income and political power flow to capital, the financial disparity / inequality far exceed the 70/30 split depicted in this political map.…No quote, just a link to Fighting Words by David Horowitz a recommended read.
America has no plan to reverse this destructive tide. Our leadership’s “plan” is benign neglect: just send a monthly stipend of bread and circuses to all the disempowered, decapitalized households, urban and rural, so they can stay out of trouble and not bother the elites’ continued pillaging of America and the planet.
There’s a lot of big talk about rebuilding infrastructure and the Green New Deal, but our first question must always be: cui bono, to whose benefit? How much of the spending will actually be devoted to changing the rising imbalances between the haves and the have-nots, the ever-richer who profit from rising debt and the ever more decapitalized debt-serfs who are further impoverished by rising debt?–The One Chart That Predicts our Future, Charles Hugh Smith
