In the Trump era, are blue states are facing a Rolex shortage?.

Dear John: Here in Beverly Hills and throughout California, there is a major issue: There are no Rolex watches to be found!

Last US Business News: In the Trump era, are blue states are facing a Rolex shortage?. NY Post 24 - US News

Even the secondary shops that were begging people to buy at substantial discounts during the Obama years are now charging 50 percent-plus markups over retail. And still no supply.

In San Francisco you are lucky to see two or three watches in a case. Again, there just is no supply.

When you talk with retailers you discover that since Trump’s arrival, Rolex watches have been flying out the door. Now remember, this is California, where Democrats outnumber Republicans 100 to 1 or something. I was wondering if that is true in New York City or another Democratic stronghold.

I mean, it cannot just be Republicans buying these watches.

Just a trend I have been noticing for the past year.

Thanks, as always. I enjoy your column. J.K.

Dear J.K. OMG, no Rolexes!

Why did you wait this long to tell me? How are Californians surviving?

I haven’t been shopping for one in a while — actually, never. But let’s get this into the paper as soon as possible and maybe someone can help us solve this mystery.

We can’t allow Californians to be deprived any longer. We’ll see if we can get a planeload to you as soon as possible.

Just try to hold on a while longer! Help is on the way.

Dear John: Thank you for the service you provide for so many of our ordinary, everyday problems — and sometimes disasters.

My story: After 45 years of auto and homeowners insurance policies with the same very over-advertised company represented by a green lizard, I had the misfortune to let my homeowners policy lapse because I forgot to pay a quarterly payment.

When I realized my oversight, I called Geico to ask for reinstatement.

It reinstated the policy and increased my premium from $2,400 to $3,600, with less coverage. I have only filed one claim in the entire 45 years of home ownership and live in fear I might need to file another one someday.

Even $2,400 was overly expensive with a $500 deductible.

I feel we are at the mercy of these companies. S.M.

Dear S.M.: As you know by now, I contacted Geico, and your premium was cut in half. I guess it was a big mistake.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. Did I say thank you? Got apologetic phone call from Geico. My premium cut in half. May you live long and prosper,” you wrote in an e-mail to me with the Vulcan salute emoji.

Why do I even know that?

Dear John: I’m an 88-year-old retiree from Johnson & Johnson. I am entitled to shop for their products at reduced prices at the company store.

For over a month I have been trying to get cleared for admission to the company’s online site. I have the necessary ID but have been unable to penetrate the roadblocks.

Any assistance resolving this problem would be appreciated. Thanks. P.N.

Dear P.N.: Mission accomplished.

I called J&J for you, and a representative of the company said it walked you through the registration process.

Enjoy your discounted drugs.
