Ah, Bermuda Bruce surfaces. BB, you stupid boob: Radio Shack's tiny little shops aren't even a blip on SPG's radar screen. As bullishstkpkr said, very few of them are in enclosed malls. Most REIT underwriting departments flagged Radio Shack with a "danger" sign long ago.
Really, you know so little about the commercial real estate business, you embarrass yourself every time you open yer yap.
Exactly how will "all dissension be squashed"? You talk like a fool. Rates can't "skyrocket"; they are regulated.
Comparisons to Obama are absurd. Obama has a law degree (we are told), nobody has ever seen his transcripts. Having a law degree does not make one a lawyer. I doubt Obama could even find a courtroom, let alone try a case. He no longer has a license to practice. He is not a lawyer. Coincidentally, his wife has a law degree but surrendered her license years ago under suspicious circumstances. Two frauds in a pod.
Lowest credit rating of any major city except Detroit, which is bankrupt.
Chicago's only way out is to impose large tax increases to pay for their huge pension liabilities and bond debt. Except that raising taxes drives more people out of the city and shrinks the tax base.
Congratulations, Dimwitcrats. Your model destroys another city.
Interest rate on the 10-year was up eight basis points today. What's "pathetic"? Or do you think the stock is supposed to go up every day?
I'd say that signing the Obamacare bill without knowing what was in it and then lying about it was a big risk and he lost.
These events could well expose Obama as a bigger fraud than he is already is perceived to be. This is already being called his "chicken Kiev" moment. I doubt he welcomes more problems right now. He prefers fabricated crises.
That's what is causing this. Ukraine never wanted to be Bolshevik; they suffered horribly under the Bolsheviks and they don't want to be under Putin's thumb either.
The idea that this is just a purposely set-up distraction is nonsense. For sure we have our own horrific problems but the hatred Ukrainians have for Russia is not something we started.
He's much more stupid than garden variety. Anyway, he can do his "job" without me.
At the very least, ownership of a knife must be subject to strict regulation. Owners must undergo background checks, obtain federal permits and register their knives at the local constabulary.
