Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


The day after the latest (literal) “sh-tstorm” at the White House over an alleged choice of words by POTUS yesterday, the president in a previously scheduled event was flanked by smiling African American leaders.  The smiling group at the end of the video below included the nephew of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and HUD Secretary, Ben Carson, M.D.

In a social media exchange with our publisher today with a clearly anti-Trump personality, L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach said, “Aren’t facts better than commentary and mere opinion?

Listen, you’re clearly a passionate person. But what part of less government in your life, more money in your pocket, and more opportunities for millions do you oppose?

As to racist, what nonsense. His black and Hispanic friends don’t see [it]. They may agree or disagree with the president, but none who knows him call him a racist.”

The need for prison reform is a bi-partisan issue.  The discussion below is not only an important one, but as this vision is implemented, it’s aimed as part of a broader plan to provide more skilled workers while helping those who’ve served their time to re-enter society in a productive, lawful way.

That’s potentially good news for manufactured housing, which is reportedly using some from the penal system in various states, today.
