if that's the logic, those who constantly talk shit about Obama over the last many years should be thrown in mental hospital.


I'm sure you are right.

So he was talking about countries that practice capitalism.


No socialism.

I assume you acknowledge it as well. And of course, now that the goods have been somewhat distributed, let's make sure this can't happen to us. The folks who were murdered for their land likely felt the same.

We can't help people who are already dead. If you think you can, go ahead and help them. I'm more interested in helping people who are still breathing.

But by the rules of this country, if China invades the USA, murders citizens, takes and keeps land, and creates a new myth to cover it over, then that is the way. So let's acknowledge that is the way and that is what we stand for.

You really think that? LOL.

Due to tax changes, price drops expected, at least what I see.

Any other thoughts?


If realtors could predict, they wouldn't be realtors.

This is a great article that uses the Case-Shiller housing price index to compare home affordability today to the bubble ten years ago. This is eye opening!!


The charts do not show home affordability, nor do they indicate a bubble.

I am assuming from your comment you did not buy?


Property taxes are more than my rent, why would I buy. Plus interest from cd's pays the rent.....


Very hard to believe, unless you rent from mom.

I don't see this new tax law having widespread impact on housing prices. It only has the potential to affect prices in expensive areas.

Like all of CA?


The poor can't buy houses anyway.
The middle class still get the write off.
The rich don't need the write off.

Conclusion: the new new tax law will have no impact on home prices.

After dinner at an oyster bar a few blocks away, she said they returned to his apartment.

She claims he performed oral sex on her and then asked her to reciprocate, which she did."

I wonder if people will start selling vacation homes since those are more of a want than a need, and no longer have tax incentives potentially.


The wealthy, who have vacation property are most likely to have prospered with the rise in stocks and property prices. If anything, they are likely to buy more property.

Las Vegas is in the middle of a desert. Empty land as far as the eye can see. I don't know how much prices will increase there this year, but I do know in the long run they will build like crazy, limiting any prices increases.

from what i know, the land surrounding Vegas is federal land. developers have to buy land from the federal government through auctions.


You make it sound like it's a major problem.

again, one more time, starting at $40K a year, people are already affected by this tax bill. that includes dual income family of two janitors making minimum wage. meaning it will drive home prices down. either agree or disagree with this and provide calculations to back up your claims or quit arguing with yourself.


Disagree. With a $40K income, you won't qualify for a home in the LA area anyway.
Refer to post #9 on this thread.

California seems to be in the middle of the pack.


I'm really surprised. Alaska and other sparsely populated states I can understand. But the corrupt, inefficient, high taxed California? Wow. Thank God for the few republicans in Sacramento.

“I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting.”


“For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already answered that line of questions’ when tens of millions of Americans are hurting right now because of what they’re worried about right now in the White House — that’s unacceptable to me,” Booker yelled at Nielsen.

Let it hurt. Cry all you want. No one cares.

The value of an asset is only what others are willing to pay for it.

There is another sucker to pay even more at time of resale.
These are called brilliant investors. ;-)


My cousin was a sucker. Purchased a small house for $1 million in silicon valley in the early 2000's. Zillow values it close to $4 million now.
My aunt custom built a huge home on a golf course at about the same time, in a small town in Illinois. Cost, $425,000. It's been on the market for 3 years. No one wants it even for $325,000.
Conclusion:
1. Everyone in Silicon Valley is a sucker.
2. There are no smart people in Central Illinois.

I've often wondered whether it would be possible to extract and burn methane from the atmosphere for a double-win:


I plan on patenting a device that runs a tube from a CO2 tank to the rectum, for the purpose of extracting, and selling the methane we produce on a daily basis. If I start production now, I can be to market in time to take advantage of my new health book coming out "Beans, beans, the musical diet".


LOL. I would like to see you on Sharktank.

Here are the facts:
1. Fossil fuels causes unacceptable levels of pollution.
2. Wether you believe in global warming or not, nothing good comes out of fossil fuels.

Saudi Aramco, the world's biggest energy company, is investing in research to make gas-powered cars more efficient.
The investment comes at a time when nations around the world are considering bans on the sale, production or use of vehicles that run on fossil fuels.
Improving fuel efficiency in these cars will play a bigger role in cutting emissions than adoption of electric vehicles in the near term, Aramco's chief technology officer says.

The chief technology officer of Aramco (Saudis are not known for their brains) is desperately trying to keep future crude demand intact by competing with renewable energy that produces zero pollution, at a fraction of the cost of fossil fuels.
A few weeks or months after Aramco goes public, I will buy the longest available puts on the company. I can hardly wait.
