    I almost got into a fist fight with a right-wing guy (Realtor) this morning.
    Edited on Thu Jan-06-11 10:11 AM by BlueJazz

    He was looking at my neighbors house and told her to hold on to it ...that prices were going to go WAY up in the next year now that we have the Republicans back in charge. (I was looking at her internet cable outside...she lost the web..etc)

    I didn't say a wasn't my place to get involved. (of course)

    BUT..She asked: :What to you think about it, Bud ?
    ---What I'm about to write is not exactly what was said but not very far neighbor is helping me)
    I said: Well, as I understand it, Prices will drop even more.
    Realtor: What do you mean?
    Me: I know lots of people that are under-water right now and who are wondering how to even make their next house payment....and soon these houses will be on the Market..adding to the overflow already.
    Realtor: That's not true
    Me: I beg to differ.. I know just about every one of them ...I see...ah...maybe 50-60 people each week and know most of my clients
    (I'm a IT tech and Microsoft engineer and all that crap) ....tell me things that only their hair-dresser knows.
    Realtor: (Nasty Tone)'re full of it.
    Me: (just slightly pissed)"I see the economy getting worse now that the same people who caused this down-turn in the economy are now back in charge the fact that the spread of wealth is going to get worse..much worse.
    Realtor:'re one of those class-war liberals who don't understand that the wealthy built this country.
    Me: Oh..Pleeeese..spare me that right-wing talking points..they're not true...the Rich are the ones that started the class wars.
    If the wealthy were not getting all the money, the rest of us could just maybe afford their house payments and wouldn't have to put their keys in the mailbox and walk away from their responsibilities ....and houses wouldn't be sold for half their previous value.
    Realtor: (Changing direction) George Bush and the Republicans have kept us safe. It cost us money but WE ARE SAFE! (starting to holler).
    Me: Safe from what?? untold thousands of people have committed suicide from this down-turn and millions are under such stress that I guarantee their lives are being shortened...ask any doctor about that.Realtor: No one's attacked any more buildings.
    Me: Oh that's brilliant...right.. and if I turn around and clap my hands 3 times every day, no tigers are going to attack me at night.
    Realtor: What??
    Me: Never mind..The analogy is way over your head.
    Realtor: (Balls fist) maybe you need some sense put in your head.
    Me: Don't even think about it wouldn't stand a chance. It would be a very bad move on your part.
    (My neighbor is smiling through all of this..She's a FAR-left intelligent woman)
    Realtor: turns around and gets in car..leaves..
    Oh me...another day in Paradise
    Zero bongs. There is no BS meter that goes high enough for this one.

    That much detail is suspicious.

    It's not bad advice, regardless of who's in power. If his neighbor can wait and see what happens before selling, it might be worth waiting a few months.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Seriously, some of their stories are at least plausible, but this I find hard to believe. The "you don't know the rich built this country" line gave it all away, and the fist threat removed all doubt.

    Of course, it's a clearly made up story. And they all buy into it. :D
    May the FORCE be with you!
