Christ Almighty. Market place on NPR had a story this morning about how the market is up, Bigly now, because divided government means no one is liable to tax capital gains on rich people. :rolleyes:

behind you, don't wait up.
What are the chances it doesn't go like this?

1. People get evicted
2. Banks and investers swoop in to purchase glut of inventory
3. Homes get rented out or flipped for a premium within 2 years

Might be some of us poor schlubs who can get into a house, but it largely feels like another repeat of the rich get richer 2008 meltdown.
but you're in a good position to buy; flexible (no contingent sale required), cash on hand, credit worthy.
be positive for fuck's sake!

Oh not complaining about my situation per se, I/we will be fine, just having a bit of an empathetic moment for the 40% of people in some states who will find themselves homeless.

Just another transfer of wealth from people who had either started piecing things together post-2008, or were just starting to establish themselves in adulthood.

per se, my bro. Per SE
I primarily blame autocorrect, with my own inattentiveness playing a minor role.

Why do you hate freedom™?
Just because one has the freedom to be an unsufferable twat, doesn't mean one needs to exercise that freedom. Unless that verbiage is enshrined in the Constitution. Cause I'm an Originalist when it comes to insufferable twattitudes.

Those dumb hicks start popping off about secession every time a Democrat takes the White House.

What they really need to do is make a good, solid step by step strategy and let us know how we can help.

Article seems to include what I’d expect. It’s an issue with staffing and budget and infrastructure. Going after middle class and poor people is “low hanging fruit” since they lack the resources to put up much of a fight. Wealthy folks are going to hire accountants and lawyers to drag out the process and come to a settlement to make things “go away.” Going to battle with the wealthy could even generate some results the IRS doesn't like which set precedents that frame future arguments.

Still. Pay up. Some of these people hire lawyers and accountants to plan and optimize their tax consequences, and then still don’t even pay up? Well, as they’d say on RM...

Time to dust of the guillotine.

“You always have those people who are struggling to get by on a million a year in New York,’’ Ms. Griffin said. “South of the Mason-Dixon line, the money goes a whole lot further.”


I wonder what will happen if the north gentrification of the south starts influencing elections.

You mean like georgia voting for a democrat in a national election and electing two democratic senators?

Or like maryland and virginia going blue with consistency?


Why........the answer to that is massive voter suppression laws and further gerrymandering my friend!
