everytime hear a complaint like this I think, "Gee this poor guy is working 65 hours a week and can't make ends meet"
You ARE working 65-70 hours a week aren't you? If you aren't workin that much you are just lazy. Anyone can work 40 hours heck that's easy, but if you are only working 40 hours a week and bitchin, you aint even trying.
So because you are unwilling to work more than 40 hours a week and other folks are willing to work more than 40 hours a week it's their fault they are rich, cause, reasons.
President Trump and many other rich folks didn't get there by working 40 hours a week. the problem is YOU ARE LAZY!
this is not an illegal immigrant problem, it's a problem of effort, you want a paycheck for 80 hours a week but only work 20 hours.
Don't complain because other folks are willing to work more than you!

Look...... As someone working in the bankruptcy field, it's common knowledge that real estate developers are the scum of the earth, worthless pieces of little dog turds that represent everything about the human civilization that needs to be flushed down the toilet while their family watches.
Look, I understand that may have been a little harsh, but these a$$holes buy up all of the available vacant land as fast as they can and turn it all into condos, subdivisions and apartments as fast as they can; they don't want to build any actual HOMES, that would be too "buyer friendly"...... no...... they want to stuff everyone in condos that sell for twice the price as an actual home, where they can collect HOA fees of hundreds of dollars per month for doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING and foreclose on people and kick them out of their $200k Condos over $1500 in missed HOA payments, and do the same with their $800k sub homes with the same HOA fees.... only difference is that they all remain empty because nobody can afford them.... Then, the housing market goes up because of these little spawns of Satan because of the high listing prices where everyone else gets drowned out of the market when they're looking to buy.
Should I even go into the homes that go for sale that people can actually afford which are bought up as soon as they hit the market, have 10k worth of remodeling and cleanup done, and the flipped within weeks for at least 50-60k more than they were listed at the previous month (which again, drive up markets and sit vacantly since nobody can afford them)?
All of this eventually and inevitably leading to the housing market bubble-pop (and being one of the primary factors in our crashing market, second only to predatory mortgage/equity lending).
Look, I'm all against illegal immigration, but I would take 100 illegals in my town before I'd let one scumbag, POS, Satans' little helper real estate developer come in.

So subsidized housing seams to get a pass; what about those who scream " we don't want universal health care - its communism "

If you enjoy urban life, thank a developer for putting in the effort to give you your urban life. And if you think displacing poor people to build commerce is bad...take that up with your local governments.

Trump...and me....have a problem with ILLEGAL immigrants. Not immigrants. Immigrants welcome. Illegal immigrants not. And i am not sure what either has to do with property development.
