Worse, they're yapping like curs after the masters that shipped their livelihoods overseas, sold them bad mortgages, reporsses their homes and evicted them. And now they can make more money by building rental units to keep their serfs in.

Go Toronto!

I was reading in the paper this morning that there is a resurgence in the sales of houses priced between $12,000 and $ 20,000 in some areas of St. Louis City and County. The reason? Rental. They are buying homes that before the ecomomic downturn were priced probably in the $40,000 to $60,000 range. Which means they were already on the lower economic scale. With the job losses, these owners couldn't make the payments, and were forced out. Now the carpet-baggers are moving in to snap up the homes and rent them to the very same type of people that lost them in the first place. The more things change, the more they remain the same. So sad.

They are being puchased in large lots by the same people who did the S&L scandal that Pres. Bush's brother was invovled in, was convicted for, and then pardoned for by Reagan. The same people who pull off Enron and the Dot.Com scams.

Get it straight, people. You are being transformed into serfs, whose value is diminishing the more your upkeep costs. To keep your money coming in, they'll sell your jobs to other countries, and make you pay for the cheap crap that comes back. But with no work, how long can it keep up.

Now Romney is strutting around, making 25 MIL per year by doing absolutely nothing from the very "investment" practices that made your jobs go bye-bye.

You are quite rightly frightened by what's over the horizon, but the rightwing wants to you to believe that the cause is two people loving each other. We are just a convenient deflection of responsibility.

The scary thing is that these people believe that they are religious and worse .... loving.
