    They are also some of the most vocal people about our homeless problem in CA.

    Now, Iím not saying this one project ends homelessness, but how can one not see that a policy of not building homes contributes to the problem?

    No not building AFFORDABLE housing contributes. I can buy a 4 million dollar house and be spoiled for choice. Try and find one for 125k and come up snake eyes.

    Sure, though I suppose I just thought it went without saying I wasnít talking about building thousands of mansions that would make Nicolas Cage blush when the example I gave was about multi-family dwellings going on a former god course.

    Either way, even average/middle class houses would be considerably more affordable if we kept up with demand, and many places arenít coming remotely close.

    Well when covid hit, a lot of companies, hedge fund and investment companies, bought up a large percentage of the houses that were on the market. And turned around and are renting them out to people. Cornholing a fair amount of the population. Iím all for capitalism but I am not a fan of that model. You donít play with someoneís housing situation.

    Itís gonna be soon where damn near everyone is gonna be priced out of the market. Be it inflation, building material price increases, or just supply and demand. Something needs to be done.

    I donít say this often but states and governments may need to intervene on this matter. Thatís the only thing I can see stopping this.

    They couldnít charge outrageous rent if there was enough competition. And rent control wonít work.

    When we got married, I had to call in a favor to find a rental for the year before we bought a house. Rental open houses would get rented before the day was over. I know the owner of a large property management company and they held a house for us without ever putting it on their website. And that was eight years ago.

    I get housing prices work a bit differently, but itís still like any other in demand product where supply has been choked off.

    This is true. Though prices peaked in the aughts as immigration was going way down.

    You know, we really could kill two birds with one stone, here. Since the Great Recession caused illegal immigration to plummet AND the housing market crash was part of it.... ;-)

    Did the owners of TikTok make a large donation to Joe Biden?

    It is legit, and it is weird. Biden kinda squats when he answers a question regarding cookies like he's pressing a log in his britches. However in his campaign thought doing a Tiktoc clip to appeal to what... kid voters..? should lose their job. The second half of the Youtube video is quotes from the hearing about Tiktok Chinese owners regarding data mining, security, etc to show this administrations' hypocrisy about National Security and the app.

    No one in the federal government is allowed to use TikTok because it is a fucking spy application from the Chinese government. But, the DNC is going to use it as part of campaigning for POTUS.

    I would say "well, at least the Biden Administration is well versed in protecting national security information and would never use improper markings or protocols"...but, we all know that is bullshit.

    I need someone to figure out how to get rid of this guy, without bringing the other guy in, and having a fucking competent, sane person as POTUS. Just to spice things up a bit.
