I have figured out the Trump job-creation numbers. I don't like it.

We all know, because Trump has told us, that job creation is at a record pace.

The other day, I was looking around my little burg and noticed something odd: The vast majority of the jobs that have been created here have something to do with food - and almost all the places that were offering jobs also offer home delivery. The rest of the jobs are in banking and telecommunications.

Therefore, I believe it to be completely feasible that the reason all these jobs are being created is people are scared to leave their homes thanks to the epidemic of mass shootings. If someone can find a telecommuting job, homeschool their children, and have everything they need delivered through DoorDash, UberEats, Walmart Home Delivery, and whatever online shopping site they choose to go through, they can just barricade themselves in the house and keep the world away.

You can read this as "Trump has nothing to do with this" or "Trump has everything to do with this, and that's a problem" but that's how I see it.

2. You could be correct, partly.

In an affluent "village" near where I live in northern NJ, every new business that opens is either a bank or a restaurant.

40 years ago, the business district was a mosaic of delightful shops. Clothing, ice cream parlors, butchers, shoe stores, gift shops, etc.

Shoppers have abandoned "Main Street" for the malls.

3. Since you mention job-creation, it's important to correct Trumpists

who believe Trump's rhetoric.

The facts show that hiring has slowed under Trump.
