HAHAHAHA!

Next, they'll be fighting hyperinflation of costs of yams and belt-fed ammo.

These commie cunts are fucking doomed.

Worthless houses, country over run will millions of bug-eyed rape-crazed rag heads.

Overpriced yams and belt-fed ammo.

The surviving government will be begging to be nuked in a few months.

I vote no. This is the type of policy that causes people to focus on attacking individuals and not their ideas.


If only people realized this over the past five years while one of their team members racked up over 50,000 posts, the majority of which were nothing but personal attacks.

It’s of the most peculiar coincidence that NOW it has become important
Now that the leader of the free world has set such an uncivil tone, rife with personal attacks
Now that all legit criticism is discarded as FakeNews
Now, all honest criticism must be censored!


Just a remarkable coincidence, the timing of these things.

What bubble?

Housing in the states is still practically free compared to normal housing markets like Monaco, London and Singapore, you know, places where there might be jobs posted.

There is no reason a condemned 3/2 in Flint with a water supply that can melt flesh should be valued at less than 141x the GDP of Slovenia.

We need all the TDS sufferers here to raise their hands and tell us how many are taking their families for a weeks vacation to the shitholes of Haiti or Somalia?

history of what user has been saying is important in estimating the merit of what they are currently saying


It's possible to look at it another way: estimating the merit of what people say based on pre-conceived notions of them is not really listening to them at all.

I remember when Killary Klinton was dragged like a manniquin into the back of a black van while on campaign or when she went into her 10 minute smoker's cough fits.

Leftist/Democrats/CNN: "Discussions about Killary's health are off limits! Let's focus on Trump grabbing pussy."

Also Leftist/Democrats/CNN: "Discussions about the booming economy are boring. Let's focus on Trump tweeting pics of him drinking Coke and eating McDonalds!"

Booming economy.

Sky high participation rate, record low unemployment.

Jobs returning to the states in the tens of thousands.

Apple brought back $250,000,000,000 to U.S shores because of tax reform. Companies investing back into the U.S at record pace. China trying to implement its own "tax reform" due to fear of US stealing investments.

AND THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO.

Hoping the POTUS gets a heart attack.

This “Trump heart attack watch” is going to backfire like every other silly thing the TDS crowd throws at him. In response to health concerns, Trump might just make some positive changes. With no bad habits other than Ben and Jerry’s, his health is better than most at that age. If he starts eating healthier, loses a bit of weight, and exercises a few times a week, he could stoutly serve another two or three terms! (JK)

A fair comparison should use index performance of the stock market and in that case there is no way stocks can outperform housing due to leverage. When i put down 3.5% and borrow 96.5%, a 6% annual appreciation translates to 171% return.


Lol, a fair comparison would point out that leverage works both ways. Houses may not go to zero (except in Detroit) but your equity can easily go to zero, and then keep on digging a hole you may never be able to climb out of. Stocks don't do that. If they go to zero, that's the end of the damage. (Unless you buy on margin, generally a bad idea.)

When you put down 3.5% on a house, you're already 2.5% in the red because of the 6% commission, and then if the investment goes down, you're doubly screwed.

I'll stick with stocks for now, thank you very much. Money has been raining on me since Trump took office.

100% of the credit goes to Trump. No way Obama could have done it.

This whole thread is really violating the spirit of discuss anything but the other users.


I wonder why people are having these types of reactions?

It’s almost as if they were sold a lie that they were made to be subjected to years of attacks and harassment, all in the name of Free Speech.

It’s almost as if some people don’t understand Free Speech. That harassing and attacking others incessantly is the most effective means of denying others their rights to Free Speech.

Maybe there’s a lesson to be learned here

It just dawned on me that for many years on this very site, many posters pleaded for civility, and asked time and again for an end to the personal attacks and harassing. Over and over again, different ideas were tried to cease the nonstop character assassination perpetuated primarily by one user, but supported by all who enjoyed watching those who suffered at his hands, mainly because they knew he was on their team, and would never aim those sites on them, but rather continually disrupt those who they see as on the “other” side.

Oddly enough, the perp was left to continue his shtick unabated, and the victims became target of a return to civility campaign, as if they were the reason for the uncivil tone.

Is it any wonder that it was greeted with such backlash, and has been so poorly received, with even poorer results?

IT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT THINGS, otherwise, Speech has no value

None of them.

Even "that's a lie!" is about the user.

"That's not true" would be fine though, because it's about the veracity of the fact.

Not necessarily. If someone states something, then someone else points out that it is untrue and why, and that person still continues to post it, then they are lying. Why is it unreasonable to point that out? And it happens a lot on this site.


Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity
