    Default Welcome to the new world order.

    Welcome to the new world order Middle America. Made possible by a Corporation near you.

    KUSA - The housing market may be in a slump, but there are certainly some good buys if you have the money. It seems mansions are big business just about everywhere in the country. Sales for luxury homes are up, and they're outpacing the rest of the market.
    San Jose, CA, has seen a 27 percent spike. In Nashville, sales of million dollar homes are up 13 percent. And in Washington D.C., the high end surge is 20 percent.
    The problem is, the rest of the housing market is struggling, especially homes considered moderately priced.

    I guess I don't understand the point of the post. Is it good or bad that at least one segment of the housing market is turning around? What is the point?

    I don't think it's necessarily good or bad. With the real estate market depressed, those with the wherewithal and inclination to buy are in a great position. One can get twice the house today for the same money you could have bought 5 years ago. The same applies whether your budget is $100K or $1M.

    Should be obvious, Joe. He rails against anyone with money. The class envy just drips from his posts.

    Like most libs, they might work for a corporation, but they hate every minute of it...they just never make enough, or don't have enough bennies, or have been passed by for a promotion they were sure they should have gotten, just because they have more time in grade, etc., etc., etc.

    Then again, he may just be upset his hut on Green Mountain, much like the brother of the POTUS..."hut sweet hut"...hasn't appreciated in value as much as he was expecting. Not much market in the land of Sasquatch.

    Is this the same San Jose that is about to go into bankruptcy?

    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose's mayor says the city must declare a state of fiscal emergency in the face of skyrocketing pension costs and the planned layoffs of hundreds of municipal workers, including police officers and firefighters, to close a $115 million budget deficit.

    Most of CA is in "fiscal emergency"! Have been for a many years. Democrats rule this state and they still don't get it as having elected a proven failed democratic governor again with a democratic legislature. The state is ruled by the SF bay area and the LA area. It is lost...

    I want to move out of state so bad!!!

    Ahhhh, the smell of a bay dog... nothin finer!

    One who lives this life without plans for eternity may appear to be wise for the moment but a fool forever.

    California hasn't had a Governor worth a damn since Wilson in the early 1990's.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    I left in '95....but the population and demographics have changed dramatically in the last 15-20 yrs...the Hispanic and Asian populations have surpassed that of any other demographic and are no longer the minority, but the majority
