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. Foreclosed, lost, tells us by implied misunderstanding the meaning of what has happened. Thirty plus million American who once had homes, were put out into the road, without care or concern.

It isn't efficient, nor cost-effective, when after years of neglect, the property will be sold "as-is", and the landlord simply moves on to a newer property. 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.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
