Laugh out loud, don't look at me, I rent.
"I live in hotels and tear out the walls, I have accountants pay for it all".
You can't take it with you when you go, and since the government actually owns everything and can take everything through either failure to pay taxes
or imminent domain owning something is just an illusion anyway.
I live a cash and carry life and only bank the funds that are required to make EFT payment obligations.
Please don't take this the wrong way, but your home's primary value to you should be for it's utility purpose, shelter, warmth, security. It's
monetary value which is speculative which is what you seem to be worried about is the root of the problem.
The speculation on homes as vehicles of passive wealth generation is what has led to this mess.
The flipping of properties, the real estate investment groups, the sub prime market, the government subsidies.
The housing problem is going to be with us a long time and it's going to get worse before it gets better.
This was all a scheme to acquire them all by the banks. In a world were few people own gold or gems the only thing of real tangible durable value
people have are their homes.
They are on a home stealing spree, and blaming it on the victims...well sure it's easy, and it might make you feel good, but what very few people
know still to this day, even the small time fraud rings that helped facilitate a lot of the loans, is that they too were dupes in a much bigger and
better thought out crime.
Personally I wouldn't blame the dupes, wannabees and genuine victims and idiots involved.
I would blame the people who conspiried to take advantage of and manipulate all those people in pulling off the greatest theft in U.S. History.
To date about 13 trillion dollars has been stolen by the Powers that Be in this scam.
Truly awe inspiring as crimes go. I shutter to think how they will top this one, but I know given time they will.
That one crime and theft sets up another.
That's what I am worried about the next crime, the next theft, that this one was a precursor towards.
Waking people up to the crime that has occured is the only thing that is possibly going to prevent the greater crime that will ensue.
If you think you have troubles now just wait until then!
The world really doesn't want saved, it's not easy waking up people to the fact that they are on a highway to hell.
Poor Bon Scott drank himself to death trying!
But we have to try. This is the tip of an iceburg.
The consequences of not waking up people will be beyond the pale.
We simply have to redouble our efforts!
