<quoted text> Galt thinks home builders build houses when there are already too many on the market.
There were too many homes on the market & now they are being purchased. Its called fee market. As the inventory of available homes shrink, then builders get more interested in building more.
Pretty much what Galt said, except that many of the houses on the market are not in good condition, so the few that are bring premium prices.

Silencing the Outrage: Obama Dog Whistles Over Trayvon
In the wake of the raw anger and grief that black people felt about the Zimmerman verdict, the president was true to form. He spoke right over the heads of black people directly to white people, once again engaging in “dog whistle” politics. Just as there are sounds which can be heard only by the canine ear, there is language which can be heard only by specific constituencies though they may appear to be created for others. While black people waited anxiously to hear a statement from him, his words regarding the verdict were tailor made for white America:

“The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

His seemingly nonsensical statement made perfect sense to its intended audience.“A jury has spoken.” In other words, shut up, get over it and don’t complain. To say that Martin’s death was a tragedy not just for his or for any one community is an outright lie. His death is a tragedy and a trauma more for black people than for any other group. Not only was his death not tragic to millions of Americans, but some were quite happy that Martin was killed and were happy when his murderer went free.“Tide of gun violence” meant only one thing. The president was in agreement with the white people who minimized Trayvon’s death by constantly bringing up violence within the black community. The “black on black violence” trope was intended to silence the outrage directed at Zimmerman’s slave patroller style murder.

Many people asked themselves why Obama said anything at all given that the Department of Justice announced it would investigate whether to file federal charges in the case. Those people miss the point entirely. He felt it important to speak to his people in the language they understand. The dog whistle range was clearly understood by the people he wanted to hear it.

In 2012 when the story of Martin’s death first became widely known Obama was caught off guard and had to throw black people a bone. He was forced to point out that if he had a son “he would look like Trayvon.” That was the last time he would publicly make a connection between himself and Trayvon Martin. All the more reason to blow the dog whistle at the opportune moment.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS Im not the PRESIDENT OF BLAVK AMERICA WOW so WHO IS LOLOLOLOL AL SHARPTON lolol

This doesn't bother anyone?
Are we now just another country on the world stage at the mercy of other nations who are soon to be more powerful and prominent?
Do we no longer stand for anything? Have we voluntarily surrendered already?
This administration seems to be waving a white flag but controlling the people is what they're all about too so, if we do surrender, it will be to their allies.
Obama promised Putin to be "more flexible" after his reelection, so Putin is walking all over him.
China is just laughing at him.
So it shouldn't be too big of a surprise when and if that happens.
Tell Flack to quit buying Chinese made crap at Walmart. He's helping to keep the Communist Chinese in power and assisting them in their eventual take over of the planet.

I doubt you could ever break him free from suckling that Communist Chinese teat.

Yea,

Founded by geniuses & run by idiots !!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally -- you might
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents' permission to go on a field trip or to
take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion -- you might live
in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
to vote for who runs the government -- you might live in a nation that
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt -- you might live in
a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation's largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make
you fat -- you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but
is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head
searched -- you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but
is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of
dollars of debt is to spend trillions more -- you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his
teacher is "cute," but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class
in grade school is perfectly acceptable -- you might live in a nation
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government
regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food
Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell
phones -- you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but
is run by idiots.

If the government's plan for getting people back to work is to provide
incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks,
without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently
sought, but couldn't be found -- you might live in a nation that was
founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage -- you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes
you more "safe" according to the government -- you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots
--Frank Reed

IF being acquitted "of ALL charges" and can't get your gun back via DOJ --- you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots

Really Carol? What direction is that? The CBO announced that the deficit dropped 32% in the last seven months of the fiscal year. In 2009 the deficit was 10% of GDP, for the fiscal year 2014 it's projected to be 5.3%. Private sector employment is continuing to grow. Home prices are on the rise leaving fewer home owners under water. Auto sales are up.
So just where are we going that we shouldn't?
Do you even have a clue what you're talking about?
But those are just numbers and facts, don't you see??? We're all dooooooooooomed!
