Do you remember when it was normal for American families to own two houses?

By the way, I have this great outdoorsmen lifestyle because I choose to be single and not have kids.

Those bastards are exspensive anyways! I like my money and materialistic things. I remember that I slept next to my brand new AR when I bought it. Hahaha

Although if I meet the right woman, I'm thinking that I may downsize. I'm never home to have a family because having purpose and making money are too important to me.

With such a diverse range of opinions what's the actual truth?

Where can we find data?

a reply to: onequestion in my area, little lake cabins used to be owned by middle class families. Now the whole Idaho panhandle waterfront property is covered in multimillion dollar mansions, and Sotheby's is a big developer. The middle class is still here, but they mainly go camping.

Too many people, not enough houses. Prices in my state are going through the roof and it is becoming quite unaffordable by the standards I grew up with.

No offense, but I notice that you are from Santa Barbara.

I know enough about Santa Barbara to know that what you are suggesting might seem more normal there.

Otherwise I am pretty sure discovering a data-source of any sort is on you.

I tried Googling, "Decline of two household ownership America" and the results were less than desirable.

*shrug*

What "Golden Era"?

Where? When?

Post WWII for about eight years or so? During the 60's for about eight years or so?

All I remember from youth and even adulthood is short periods of excess followed by 12 or so years of absolute financial anxiety and money-shuffling.

We live in a time when epochs of American history can be defined in a mini-series.

I'm honestly just interested in America as a project. It must be seen in these terms. We have only been at it for some years more than 200, and despite our troubles, we can still kick you ass to Kingdom Come...

You forget that all empires fall, we call it human nature, you call it your citizen rights.. You think anyone is gonna do anything, you are doing a great job yourself, we are just watching and eating popcorn.. You think your 200 year old history can do anything to a 8000 year old culture of the north.. you are kids.. you have the mentality of a 10 year old, havent you realized why we treat you like a teenager with tantrums..
We are a old nordic culture..

There was a time in American history when it was normal for middle class families to own a house in the city and one out in the mountains or Florida or somewhere else.

So I'm wondering what happened to that?

This leads me to another line of thinking... What was it about that generation that made it possible for this to be true?

Was it that they made more money? Did they have more purchasing power? We're goods cheaper?

What changed happened please help me understand.


What happened to the 1000 to 1500 sq ft house as an average size too. I can have 4 houses at that size for my one lol....

What a joke! You're a bunch of donkey-riding primitives out of the Caucasus, like the rest of us.



You think your 200 year old history can do anything to a 8000 year old culture of the north..


This is a valuable window in to the Russian educational system, to say the least.

Solving the problems that your burned-out whore-of-a-culture couldn't handle is why ours was born.

We feed on your corpse.

Read some Toffler and STFU.

Have a nice day.
