Sad Sight

Fontana, KS

#1 Feb 25, 2013
Went to the mall this evening and was shocked to find it in such a state of disrepair. Maybe 20% occupancy. Just a sad, sad sight to see.

A new Dollar General Store at the corner of Main and Court.

The Goodwill and Salvation Army stores are doing pretty well on some of Marion's prize commercial property.

Have no fear or pity though because 42 percent of our people receive food stamps and millions come from Mexico to get on our liberal bandwagon.

I think you are looking at our liberal's paradise and we will all be as wealthy as the folks in the U.S.S.R. and communist China, very soon.

Maybe those that are working should just shut up and pay more taxes to King Obama and Michelle.

They appear to be living pretty large.

Marion's plight is shared by communities all over the country indicating the liberals' influence is everywhere.

I think I had rather breath air polluted with the results of burning clean coal than raise my children on food stamps and fast food.

Quit taking wealth from productive workers and their consumerism will provide employment in other unrestricted fields.

It worked many years in America until the liberals came along and attempted to fix something that wasn't broken.

I have been several times in recent months, and was very surprised to see so many blacks lurking around.

So may i ask. Who is suppose to be lurking around? Money is green and pays all kinda bills. No matter the color. Why do people think they have more rights then others. The lack of books smarts is painfully to see on here. Go to school, take a history class. Im sure not one black or white man or women was here first. Its no ones land.

Only because Obama and company are determined to take from those that have worked for what they have and give it to the lazy, the illegals, etc......all in the name of votes!

I thought this was supposed to be about the mall. I was tricked it's nothing but raciest slurs, name calling, and president bashing. If you people think you can do better then run for president already. At least this one didn't start a war with a country that left us cleaning up from multiple terriost attacks and leaving thousands of families grieving for husbands, wives, children, etc...
Just because someone is of another race doesn't mean they can't run a country. I have never seen a nation get so bothered by a president before...I mean really Clinton was getting hummers on a daily basis in the oval office & most people just shrugged their shoulders and went on with their day!!!!

I went before Christmas to the mall hoping for some different stores than I have in Cape. I lived in Carbondale 17 years ago and Marion always had the "nicer" places. I was shocked at how empty it was 2 weeks before Christmas and hardly any stores! We ended up going to Cdale but will go back to Paducah in the future.(Stl is always an option but I prefer smaller city shopping). I hope things start to improve...

The new trend we have noticed around the country is open air malls. They have built them in the Memphis area to stop the gang activity and are full of stores and shoppers. The Marion Mall is a dinosaur.

Since: Jan 13

The only thing that keeps that place open is the anchor stores (Dillardís, Target, and Sears). Anyone who works there will tell you that. Iíve been in there on a weekday afternoon and bet I didnít pass more than 6 or 7 people as I walked through.

That guy from Makanda bought it a few years ago promising all these upgrades and renovations, yet itís gotten worse. I wonder how long it took him to realize he was in over his head.

It would be nice to see the mall recover, but I donít see it happening anytime soon.

I think that a chicken/kool aid joint would really flourish.

Oh, boo Hoo!! Here, have a tissue and yes, you very much appear to be a racist. True racists are always wanting to play the racist card when their argument is weak....so here's my free, unsolicited opinion for you!
