It is a new country, a new existence, not given to the landless. To own nothing is to be ostracized by government; without money, you have no voice, without voice you're not free. It makes you a peasant, moving from rental to rental, shopping at Wal-Mart or Target or some other corporate entity. You have little or no real control over the goods or commodities you purchase; instead you are force-fed a continual personality-based diet of infotainment. Will the government shutdown damage John Boehner's standing in the Party? Harming the People, instead of doing the People's bidding, ought to have consequences.

In the wake of a housing bubble -- enabled, enacted, and perpetrated against the American public by members of both political parties -- eight million homes were foreclosed on. With four members per family, it means thirty plus million Americans lost their homes; but sometimes the English language can be imprecise.

Renters tend to overhabitate; the economy of a low-wage renter society dictates more bodies to help pay the rent, which in turn speeds the decline of the property. A Real Estate rule of thumb says, never buy in a neighborhood with more than 20% rentals, as such neighborhoods are unstable and can decline rapidly.
