    Very important that people be forced to rent rather than own.

    Renters almost universally believe there is no connection between property taxes and the rent they pay.

    So, when presented with bond initiatives almost all vote in favour of them because it sticks it to those fat-cat landlords and doesn't touch them at all.

    I believe the theme song for that movie is "Burn Baby Burn".

    I love it when outraged protestors burn their own homes and then wonder what happened to all the shit they stole to furnish those hovels.

    We make less money in flyover country because we aren't burdened by state governments sucking us dry for liberal schemes. Prices across the board are lower in flyover country, so it takes less to live. Companies pay higher wages in places like New York and California because those states would be ghost towns if they paid what the rest of the country gets paid. The question is, why haven't those companies moved? I'll give you a for instance. My 2800 sq ft house that is worth $289k would cost you well over $1M on either coast. I'll stay in flyover country with a relative wage/cost than your stinking, festering, decaying urban center.

    Your house is worth less because the economy and market where you live have only a fraction of the competition and demand for products and services that exists in urban centers. In other words, if you live somewhere where nothing’s going on, don’t expect people to be outbidding each other for the chance to work and/or live there.

    LOL You don't know shit about what you're talking about. We had one of the lowest state unemployment rates during the disastrous Obama economy.

    So? The market dictates that your house is cheap because there’s little demand for it. The most basic economic principle there is.

    That made no sense in terms of the post you responded to. Try again.

    Why isn't it the responsibility of the low end workers to work harder and care more about their jobs rather than Walmart to pay them more than they are worth?
