Where'd all the forums go?,
Well, I do not blame Patrick for not buying in the 2009-2012 period.
I saw the huge propping up of the market and my thought was how could this possibly go on for long? Well, it did.
Besides, many of the properties available at that time investors bought, fixed up, and sold for a profit. I looked at the original listings and went 'Ewwww'.
And we are talking California. Check out many other areas of the Country, North Carolina, Florida, etc. There are many livable and reasonably priced properties available still. On 16 Jan 2015
Will I Reach 100 Years of Age?,
Of course you will you Old Fuck.
I will quote some of your Friends:
"The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy."
"A slave government is an oligarchy; and one, too, of the most arbitrary and criminal character."
"Those who are able to climb up the ladder will find ways to pull it up after them, or selectively lower it down to allow their friends, allies, and kin to scramble up. In other words: 'Who says meritocracy says oligarchy."
"“Representative government is artifice, a political myth, designed to conceal from the masses the dominance of a self-selected, self-perpetuating, and self-serving traditional ruling class.”
“Those in power must spend a lot of their time laughing at us.”
“A ruling intelligentsia, whether in Europe, Asia or Africa, treats the masses as raw material to be experimented on, processed, and wasted at will.”
"The second corruption of the state is oligarchy (oligos = few), in which the military elite is narrowed down to a few ruling families of immense wealth and prestige, who now openly flaunt their wealth and possessions."
"Democracy is premised, in some measure, on majority rule, and democracy is difficult in a situation of concentrated inequalities in which a large, impoverished majority confronts a small, wealthy oligarchy."
“The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.”
