    Comparing Detroit with SV is mistake . Rather than

    Manufacturing we are based in innovation . We in here are disrupting everything and making things better

    http://m.seekingalpha.com/article/2282823

    You're not disrupting anything, shithead. Writing code for apps that deliver coffee or allow you to post images of your dick to other teenagers isn't the same as building cars, ships, infrastructure or oil/energy facilities.

    We need to disarm cops

    Shouldn't we be disarming criminals first?

    That's exactly what dan is suggesting

    the worst sort of asset to own are these luxury homes

    Just FYI, on peninsula, this is pretty much of a shit box of a house. Not luxury.

    So now there's a problem with the Service entrance?

    I could have used you assholes about 20 years ago, when I was doing carpet and tile in buildings in Aventura Florida like Turnberry Isles. The service entrance is situated about a quarter mile of going through Maxwel Smart doors, vaults, and airlocks, to get to the service elevator. I should have called a Liberal.

    You just bumped a 2-year old thread that proved everything the RE bears believed in was dead wrong.

    As far as Leo is concerned, he's long gone and hasn't posted to this board since 2012. Clearly he should have ignored the high prices and pulled the trigger back in 2012.

    Here is what Foster city did almost precisely from the moment this thread was published:

    New Renter says

    Indiana Jones says

    In any case, difficult and scary to look at.

    Ugh, its just a !@#$% picture.

    But at least you're not choking out your cat in this one.

    Would this fuss exist if I were a man? The original accusation was that I was trying to be seductive, followed by being told that I look like a witch. So, a whore and a witch. Now, I know these were popular accusations against learned women in centuries past, but one would hope we've moved on from that. I see, for some, we have not.

    I didn't address The Original Banker's (TOB) comments because, I don't consider them to be genuine attempts to engage in a discussion. Rather, I view them as some kind of attempt to draw me into an argument that exists entirely inside TOB's head. For the last week, his comments to me have either attacked my appearance or attacked me for being a woman. I know it's a little confusing because TOB's posts seem like they are picking up from an existing conversation, yet the other part of the conversation is impossible to find. Don't be confused. I can explain.

    You see, TOB and I are having an argument. From what I gather, my half of the argument exists ONLY in his head. Since his last comments to me devolved into an attack on my appearance, it would seem he's losing his imaginary argument.... which is a shame. One should always be victorious against the imaginary opponent.

    That said, my pictures were just that. Pictures. Though I think that a personal touch is nice, causing emotional outbursts, personal attacks, or even debate, over my picture, was never my intention. I'd rather we just stick to emotional outbursts, personal attacks, and debates about the actual, posted news item.

    So, no worries. The color and individuality has been subdued. I'm now just like everyone else. Perhaps this will help TOB forget that I'm not a man. If not, perhaps TOB will opt to "ignore" me. Since we don't burn our witches and whores anymore, it is the best option for him to smite me from his patnet universe.

    Why should it cost anything? They have a garden hoe or an ax or something right. Just need someone to hold him down and someone to swing the hatchet.

    Prisoners have a hard time getting necessary medical treatments, and yet, gender reassignment is somehow a priority. Talk about political correctness gone wrong. I want my taxes back!

    Call it Crazy says

    That's what happens when you vote for Democrats.

    Buyer's remorse!!

    You're too stupid to realize what this really means. If liberals are upset at Obama, doesn't that mean he's far more conservative than you lying idiots have claimed?

    As an aside, the "3 likes" for iwog and "3 dislikes" for my damning post, and the rapidity of which those appeared, is turning my attention to the fact that Iwog may have a minimum of 3 accounts on patnet....hmmm..now who would they be??

    You realize I have 22 followers right? More than anyone else on pat.net including Patrick?

    BTW they aren't anonymous either.

    However if you want to stroke your own ego and pretend you're not a troll, feel free!!

    Talking to yourself again I see.......

    Health care needs to be universal or it needs to be administered based on how much you can pay or it will be utter chaos.

    Since most Americans don't think longevity should be determined by wealth, the other option is the only option. We're never going to be able to control how people live so just accept it.

    I don't think that was supposed to happen either. LOGAN!

    You might want to read my work before making an assumption. This isn't Nazi Germany where we burn books instead of reading them

    "We can expect 1 to 2 more months of increasing sales before the dampening effects seasonality kicks in, as happens each year. 2013 had a peak Seasonal Annual Adjusted Rate of Sales (SAARS) of 5.39 million. I project a peak SAARS of 5.14 -5.21 million in the up coming sale reports but even with more homes on the market, we will not see growth from last year. Look for total sales to be between 4.78 million to 4.93 million. There is not enough demand to have even a flat year in sales, year over year, even with increased inventory"

    http://loganmohtashami.com/2014/07/05/housing-2014-mid-year-updatehousing-2014-mid-year-update-the-rich-have-their-cake-and-eat-it-too/

    However, lets take a housing Math, Data Facts

    2014 Existing homes sales are going to be negative YoY

    This means that sales growth is going to be negative even with housing inventory up YoY and YTD now up 15% per Monday's Data

    Let's look at the charts Today's MPA numbers still down -15%

    Existing homes Sales

    Inventory Low claim

    Buyer Profile

    68% mortgages 22% below historical trends
    32% cash buyers 22% above historical trend
    27% first time home buyers 13% below historical

    So, even with 32% of the market place being cash... You can't even get total sales to grow

    This is basic math, this isn't some difficult algorithm model

    2014 will have higher inventory and negative sales even with a 22% above normal trend cash buyer.

    Throughout my life, I often heard women complaining that the decks are stacked against us. I never believed it. In my experience, people (men and women) always treated me fairly. I never earned less than my male counterparts. I was promoted fairly. If someone else got a job instead of me, it was because he/she deserved it. The men I dated, treated me like a lady. Ye Gods! They opened doors for me and paid for dinner. Not because my arms are painted on or I couldn't afford my own meal, but because they are gentlemen. They wanted me to feel special. They never made me feel that my opinions didn't matter. They appreciated me for what I had to offer. And I appreciated them, and as a younger person looking for a mate, I had the highest hopes with each guy that we would forge a lasting friendship.

    Lately, there have been several threads of a similar theme to this thread, that have shown me how lucky I am to have never run into most of you in real life. YOU are the very people these women who claimed the decks were stacked against them were talking about!

    You love to say that "women should be this" and "women now are that." But have you ever stopped to think about why women were what they were and why they are now what they are? Do you think about why women in less developed countries are what we used to be?

    The western world emerged from the dark ages strongly guided by Christianity. Like it or not, Christianity wasn't especially kind to women:

    ==============================

    "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." (I Corinthians 11:3)

    "For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man." (I Corinthians 11:8-9)

    "Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." (I Timothy 2:11-14)

    "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean." (Leviticus 12:2)

    "But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days." (Leviticus 12:5)

    "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Whoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death. He that sacrificeth unto any god, save to the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed." (Exodus 22:18-20)

    "Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go." (Judges 19:24-25)

    "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything." (Ephesians 5:22-24)

    "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." (Genesis 3:16)

    "Give me any plague, but the plague of the heart: and any wickedness, but the wickedness of a woman." (Eccles. 25:13)

    "Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die." (Eccles. 25:22)

    "If she go not as thou wouldest have her, cut her off from thy flesh, and give her a bill of divorce, and let her go." (Eccles. 25: 26)

    "The whoredom of a woman may be known in her haughty looks and eyelids. If thy daughter be shameless, keep her in straitly, lest she abuse herself through overmuch liberty." (Eccles. 26:9-10)

    "A silent and loving woman is a gift of the Lord: and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well instructed. A shamefaced and faithful woman is a double grace, and her continent mind cannot be valued." (Eccles. 26:14-15)

    "A shameless woman shall be counted as a dog; but she that is shamefaced will fear the Lord." (Eccles.26:25)

    "For from garments cometh a moth, and from women wickedness. Better is the churlishness of a man than a courteous woman, a woman, I say, which bringeth shame and reproach." (Eccles. 42:13-14)

    ============================

    There are more passages, but I think this is enough to illustrate what I am talking about. Passages like these are what dictated life for western European women after Constantine. Make no mistake, this was law for much of our history.

    Do you believe that women had a choice about this? Do you believe that they were able to evolve as nature intended despite the "hand of God" hovering over them?

    Men had the luxury of evolving relatively unfettered by such rules. Women did not until VERY recently in western history. We haven't changed. The fact is you haven't a clue what women are. Up until very recently, we've not been allowed to be anything but what you men said we must be.

    Without naming names, you say things like, "men created all the technical advances that we enjoy today; women can't/won't do it" and "women are going against some genetic need to be subservient."

    What choices did we have when it was considered a SIN to teach a woman to read or for her to give the mere appearance of putting herself above a man?

    I'm so impressed that you invented stuff. Men only had a thousand-year head start on women! (Since we emerged from dark ages.)

    Just know that these "rules" made it impossible for any of us to know what women really are. It's only been about 50 years that we've been allowed to develop by our own volition. I have no doubt that you admire women from developing parts of the globe. But make no mistake... They suffer from the very affliction that western women suffered from prior to the 1960s. Men made the rules and those women haven't yet realized the profound unfairness of it. They will.
