All these companies are price gouging assholes who ripped off consumers for the past three years at the very least.

walgreens and target are perhaps not the best examples. their margins the past two years are lower than they were pre-pandemic and walgreens is not making money as a business:

https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/WBA/walgreens/operating-income

instead look at the companies who produce the products which are stocked inside TGT and WBA. such as proctor and gamble, which has underwent a seemingly permanent margin expansion post-pandemic:

Lol, we're never getting away from the loving hellhole of CENTCOM

Sometimes I wonder what would happen if we pulled up stakes and left the entire region. We donít need the oil and gas or anything else.

OMFG PTSD LOL PBUH posted:

I kinda think the reason games like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing are so popular is that they're games you can live an idyllic life in and get "ahead" in and own a home and some land.

That's the kind of poo poo most millennials won't get to do, almost no Gen z's are going to do, and my daughter who isn't even 1 yet is statistically very unlikely to do unless me and the wife pass.

I like Stardew Valley too, but just to have a common factual frame of reference -- most millennials own homes, and >25% of gen z does already too:
