Yes you did, a BIG one... your 401K balance:

The dow went up 250% under obama. Does that make obama the best president to date instead?

You should be ashamed of yourself for that one.

Was this the assault weapon that got $200?

I find that wall opposers typically fall into one of two categories:

a.) They plain and simple don’t believe there should be borders. They believe that people should’ve able to roam freely anytime anyplace.

b.) They’ve seen one too many liberal late night talk shows that say that a wall won’t keep everyone out. And because it won’t keep everyone out, it would be a failure.

See the slope of the chart above? Thank the left political party and their “progressive” bullshit for that 👍

If you are moving to San Mateo with the expectation that those ads you posted are real/norm, you will be in for a rude awakening.

On the Peninsula you can expect to pay $2800-3000 for a 2bedroom apartment or $3500-4000 for a 2 bedroom house (with lots of competiton).

Cost of living is very high on the Peninsula.

I think people who come here are often shocked at how much money they can make here yet how much less buying power they have compared to where they came from.

Not just used cars...

Houses, cars, sandwiches, jeans, fruit, everything has gotten out of this world expensive in recent years.

98 firebird, not a daily driver though. It’s a fun car. Fast as hell, but corners like a boat

Cool, got any pics?

The LS1 was an absolute game changer. No engine has been part of more motor swaps than the LS1, and for good reason.

I think a 67-68 camaro with updated brakes and suspension along with a well built 416 LS3 and T56 would be my dream car.

What a conundrum for the Bay Area.

Side with riders who use BART for transportation vs homeless and criminals

It’ll be like trying to pick your favorite child... impossible

Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

“In spite of a recent initiative to "increase public's access to BART crime data", they have in fact been reducing the amount of crime information they publish because of fear of racial sterotyping. While I agree with the notion that it would be a shame if racial biases are formed for any reason, I am of the firm belief that it is not BART's job to hide information from us. Nor is it their right.

BART has reduced their daily crime updates to a mailing list which requires approval. The information on this site is scraped from those daily emails and posted.

I created this site while sitting on BART for my daily commute back and forth from Fremont to San Francisco. I've seen a lot of crazy things on that commute, and I think security is in serious need of some attention. Particularly gate security. I'd venture to say a huge percent of the negative press BART is getting is by the same people I see hopping the fare gate every single day. Nothing is ever done about it.

I love BART, but I've had it with the overly-aggressive begging, bodily fluids, needles, and just plain garbage I see on a daily basis”

I was thinking

If right wing simps couldn’t whinge and complain about liberals all day, what would they do?

They’d continue to ride the wave of economic growth.

People know CANNIBAL! ANARCHY! is imminent and they're moving to higher ground, securing dry YAM! storage, drilling the kids and wife on care and feeding of M134.

Cannibal anarchy
Belt fed weaponry
Higher ground
Dry yam storage

I think it’s becoming clear to people that we’ve hit the peak and it makes sense for many to cash in, move, and live happily ever after with financial freedom.

I think so too. There are lots of for sale signs springing up in the last month in my neighborhood in Carlsbad as well. Prices are definitely softening

I just feel bad for the poor bastards that are jumping in today, my gawd that would be scary.

Be careful what you wish for. Coem to Illinois and pay 15k for 350k house ayear and then there is no cap on taxes. The pigs here want to increase income taxes also.

What does that have anything to do with prop13 in CA?

both perps were caught already, I believe

they were small business owners, had no choice

Wonder what will happen to the perps. Hopefully the criminal justice system doesn’t take a page out of the Fish and Game’s “catch and release” program.

And I wonder what the legitimate $75k cash was needed for that couldn’t have been transacted in another way or at the bank with two parties.

@APOCALYPSEFUCKisShostikovitch you might really enjoy this little gem:

In addition to blocking ads so you don't see them, it actively goes out and clicks on all Google ads, etc just to mess with their statistics and cost them payments to advertisers.

Can you plant potatoes on the front yard of the SV shack and tie up a goat in the drive way and apply for the agricultural exemption on your taxes? Have the kids put on farmer jeans and take pot shots at cars after school while screaming 'Skeedaddle! Pesky varmints!' for added badness.

Hehehehe “tie up a goat in the driveway”

San Jose is actually an even worse deal than San Francisco, just going by prices compared to local incomes. I think they are right to sell, especially since some other overpriced places like NYC have been falling for a year or more.

SJ/SV has an 11x ratio of home prices to median household income. SF closer to 9x. Info courtesy of USAToday

To the post above...

Yes, if you are short term investing, day trading, follow the media hysteria stories, or just making a lot of transactions, your are likely to get eaten alive. This is where money changes hands from the middle class to the upper class.

BUT, if you go long and invest in SP500, popular Vanguard ETFs, and high dividend funds, you will win over the long run. This is the only chance the middle class none financial professional has to win.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
