There is a worldending drought in CA now.
Ads on radio telling us LET LAWN DIE.
Dual solution to teacher housing and water shortage: all soccer/play fields on school property to be REzoned as highrise condo mixed use!
I would recommend bars, strip clubs, adult stores, tobacco and pipe shops on first floor (to get max foot traffic from students with fake id)
Stories 2 through 99 to be palatial 380 sq foot apartments for teachers. There should be PLENTY of units from floor 5 to 99 to RENT OUT at a profit thus we can then completely eliminate the property tax to fund schools. elminate the lotto tax which funds schools, and the 10% sales tax. so much profits! Rents in SF are 5000 a month for a 1 bedroom above a bowling alley and below another different bowling allley.
from th article:
Despite the famous ingenuity of the tech entrepreneurs who live here, there’s no clear resolution to the looming teacher housing crisis.
I JUST SOLVED THIS PROBLEM IN THREE SECONDS: rezone
The reason is the tech people wont solve it is there is no IPO possible from zoning law changes and it would effect thier 1.8m crap shack house value.
They should rezone all schools to mixed use (live/work) zoning.
Then we can let teachers live in their classrooms free (put up a small partition and a closet) AND THEN WE CUT THIER PAY as now they live 'fer free'.
All our problems in america go back to ZONING LAW.
Patrick did you get a chance to do any nazi hunting while down there?
I'm pretty sure near 100% of all german people south of the US/Mexico border are decendents of nazi's, especially any well off ones.
Its well known. But its not illegal to have nazi grandparents.
This was the last thing men still 'owned'.
Now we are truly useless (after they get two small trophies out of you and the alimony/child support/other checks all clear).
TX has sky high prop tax.
up to 3% depends on area.
CA is 1 to 1.25%
ALSO there will be zero appreciation other than 'rate of inflation' in TX real estate. So forget about getting a 100k HELOC one year after buying with low down. (pretty much that is normal in CA).
The benefits of stable real estate prices are probably worth it to many people who dont have a 'im not getting rich fast enough/CA mentality'
Its liberal utopia
Its like cuba as much as possible within the US.
There are two classes of people:
1. Rich and Middle class (mostly all government employees)
2. Poor people in and out of jail and/or on welfare/s-8, ebt, etc (these people are fed upon by group#1 in various ways, jailers, social workers, teachers, cops, gov healthcare workers)
Fit into one of those classes and its a great city.
Question: What if a woman wants to report a man groped her breasts 40 years earlier? Surely a whole team is dispatched?
Answer: Yes, a team of jewish attorneys, (but only if its a deep pockets target)! ZING!
Can they drive me home over the internet if I'm too drunk?
I DIDNT THINK SO THANKS FER NUTHIN AGAIN HACKERS
RE is now a casino/investment and a money laundering scheme all in one wonder.
No one will move to MN, they cannot find enough diversity hires in that state.
they also collect pensions after doing this 100 times a day for a number of years.
If they had cameras looking inside cells that would be breach of privacy, LAWSUIT THEY SAW ME NEKKID
No camera = murdering going on
She suffered from depresson and PTSD
Starting attacking the cops
then killed herself in jail
sounds like bi polar so suicide would be totally plausible. right?
Does it come in gel form?
Yes this book came out right at the start of the BEST BUYING OPPORTUNITY for RE in our lifetimes.
Especially in bay area where patrick is mostly concerned with.
09,10,11 was a rare, never to be repeated period where houses cost far far less than today. And the banks with thier short sales did not care what price they got (if you could land one of those deals, there were lots of them)
I know in LA area 2 bedroom apartment style condos couuld be had for 130 to 200k and the same units are now 300 to 500k and rent for 2300+ per month.
Anyway no one knows the future but patrick is a perma bear - you gotta buy the dips people.
Patrick should have released this book in 2005, then another book in 2009 saying 'now is the time to buy re' then another book NOW saying 'now is time to sell re'.
That would have awsome.
These fuking bubbles are makeing me crazy. They are really all scams and frauds we actively participate in, so I guess i respect patrick for not knowingly investing in a ponzi fraud scheme, but we cant all rent, that society cant exist.
People laid off by robots can make money programming 'apps'.
Or prostitution apps.
I'm coding one now where its a pick-your-price reverse auction whoring app AND the whore is delivered via self driving car OR (for extra fee) its a self driving sex-van and you make sex in the van. One in ten will randomly take you to the police station where the police robots will book the john into for profit prisons. But also one in ten get free sex and are dropped off home safely - no one will able to resist using it.
Randomly booking one in 10 johns means we can lay off half the police, no more cops in drag pretending to be whores - what kind of fucking ridiculous government make work job is that anyway?!? jesus think about it.
I wouldnt co sign for myself!
too much risk
Too soon to say.
I read same articles about iphone1, and ipad1.
I remember the 'backlash' against the first people to buy the first iphone - it was pricey like $600
Since most americans are on food stamps and s-8 they only see $600 by turning lots of tricks or selling drugs so that price point is 'rich people'.
I want to know if the images were of obese children or not.
This is important to the story.
Its an outrage she only got 3 hours in jail.
Its punishable by up to 90 days!
She should have gotten the WHOLE 90 days in jail due to all the notices and the phone call she ignored.
Then she should have had her 14 year old in the car taken away by the CPS since she is in jail and abandoned her child in a car!
Then there is more jail time for the child abandonment.
Then there is the money to pay the state of MI for processing and taking care of her child for 4 years, easily this could be 50k a year, depending upon whether the kid is adopted out to a brothel or if the child is fat, the parent must pay for a foster family for 4 years.
Probably the kid is obese so 200K fine easy.
After they fix it, it might label gorrillas as people.
Will the gorrilas be offended?
This seems to be happening daily, but rarely in the news.
Its obscene that CNN and other networks dont show these stories but if a white guy uses the n word, or a white lady pretends to be black, or some woman claims a famous guy fondled her 40 years ago - THOSE stories are front page news requiring national debate.
We know why, the real stories dont 'get eyeballs' on the website.
Yeah the muslims can have up to 4 wives legally, how the hell do they have more personal freedom that the US?!?!?!
Clearly polygamy would be a win for fat chicks too, thats a large demographic (zing!).
Clearly its much better to live in this tent for 900 a month and take the money you saved by not buying and invest it into the stock market.
