Well, water would be nice.

I like it here. And for some reason, most of you seem to like it out there.

I like both. And happily, I get to experience both.

But frankly, there is likely more interesting architecture in one square block of Buffalo, NY than there is in all of SoCal.

I also prefer 4 seasons.

As opposed to wet season, dry season, drier season, driest season.

Trump said that there will never be another black president after Obama.

The title was the most interesting. For example my title said there are to be no colored persons on the property unless they are a slave.

Enjoy the SUPERBOWL of debates

Robbie, have you thought of firing up your deadsite after the 2016 elections?

Bearly and ilk will need a place for quiet contemplation afterwards.

Perhaps you could serve Spam on toast points for the pity party.

"As she walked through the factory floor, Ms. Ni pointed to digital screens at the end of each row of spinning machines, which displayed in real time, out of a score of 100, how efficiently those machines were kept running by their operators. The screens flashed: 76, 85, 90. Experienced workers in China rarely let that number drop below 97, she said.

Rental Demand Supplies Home-Building Opportunity -- Heard on the Street - WSJ

"In June 2015, ground was broken on most multifamily-housing units since 1986"

tg wrote:

will it affect rentals?

Well, there is always an effect. But currently, the majority of urban multifamily rentals are geared towards working singles with higher incomes and downsizing Boomers.

The forcing-function for the construction of more affordable rentals in the suburbs should be these millennials with lower paying jobs, but that hasn't occurred....yet!

The culture has changed. The stigma of living with your parents has changed.

Someone had better prune their single family housing forecast:

"But over the past 15 years, the economy (and culture) has evolved in ways that make living solo less appealing. The rent is high. We have education loans to pay off. We're not in a rush to get hitched. So long as all that stays true, America's basements are probably going to stay pretty full."

Rob Dawg wrote:

Instead of encouraging free and open debate, collectivists strive to discredit and intimidate opponents. They engage in character assassination. (I should know, as the almost daily target of their attacks.) This is the approach that Arthur Schopenhauer described in the 19th century, that Saul Alinsky famously advocated in the 20th, and that so many despots have infamously practiced. Such tactics are the antithesis of what is required for a free society—and a telltale sign that the collectivists do not have good answers.

Koch decries ‘corporate welfare’ at GOP retreat — but his firm gets millions in federal subsidies

"The Koch-organized conference at a luxury resort in Southern California reportedly attracted roughly 450 conservative donors who have committed to spending nearly $900 million on the 2016 presidential election. The event also is scheduled to include Republican presidential candidates such as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio."
