      • Like my friend I mentioned before me, I am also Unemployed. And have been for Years. And don't receive any Gov. Bennies.

        And don'tr qualify for any.

        My friend Finally did. After he spent down his savings.


        That's Not an Economy in "Recovery".

        When folks who had some savings and skills, are chronically Unemployed. And end up on Public Assistance/The Dole/Welfare/Food Stamps, etc.

        Whatever you want to call it: He'd much rather have a real, Full Time Job, especially with benefits, than to received Food Stamps, and whatever else he can scratch up for bennies, as a single male.

        That's not what MY United States of America is about, nor what I want to live in.

    • I visited both Spain and Portugal in ballpark 2005/2006, I don't recall exactly.

      The trip was fantastic, and the eyeopening was priceless.

      Someone on the bus tour was telling me that I could buy "a property like this for about $20,000 USD", as we were whizzing by on the bus, in the countryside of Portugal. Not unless it was a TimeShare.

      Well, NUF SAID. Sounded like a lie then, and Just might be a reality In Another Year. Without the Timeshare hitch attached.

      When folks really CAN purchase what appears to be a reasonable home at a rock bottom price, that does create a Market. And every little profit creates a bigger market, which creates a bigger pool of interest, with creates a larger market, which creates a bubble, which tells you to SELL.
