    Unbelievable.

    Because in the heat of passion, every woman wants to hear "So can I have sex with you?"

    The American jihad against men continues.

    The problem with the way silly Austrians quantify demand is that in a high wealth disparity economy, demand can simply mean ONE billionaire (the Hunt brothers is a good clear example) on a whim deciding to turn an entire market on its head.

    This is the problem with idle cash. A painting that costs $100 million isn't rational. It isn't supply and demand. It cannot be predicted nor can anything be said about its future appreciation or decline. It is not subject to cronyism, government interference, or macro-economic forces. It's simply a bunch of rich assholes in a room preventing each other from owning it. NOTHING MORE!

    This is the nature of bubbles and crashes. Austrians cannot comprehend it because the language to describe it is missing from their theology.

    Hope you're enjoying change.

    Very compelling considering about zero percent of that swat team voted for Obama.

    Or are you going to argue that a bunch of white assholes in Atlanta voted for a Democrat?

    New Renter says

    So how is this supposed to change the whole "he said / she said" problem? The guy can still say she said "yes" when she may not have actually consented and she can say she was "raped" even if she was the aggressor.

    Without a written, notarized contract or a professional, unbiased camera and sound crew on site to record the entire act in 3D 4k def who's to say what really happened?

    It's an attempt to pacify a bunch of screaming bitches who think rape is a serious problem on college campuses.

    I would be the first to agree that regrettable sex is a problem on college campuses, but women need to be taught that this isn't the same thing as rape. If they get drunk, get horny, and get laid, they should take responsibility and stop blaming everyone else.

    MattBayArea says

    This will not affect people having consensual sex

    Yes it will.

    MattBayArea says

    it will affect people who are raped but are too frightened to fight back.

    This law is specifically for college girls. I don't know what planet you live on but it's not earth. On earth, the idea that a college coed at a frat exchange would be too timid to yell or fight back is an absurdity.

    MattBayArea says

    thinking that the woman enjoys being overpowered.

    Most women enjoy being overpowered. I'm certainly guilty of rape myself however the "best sex in my life" comments afterwards told me I was safe.

    MattBayArea says

    The bottom line is that there is NOT a problem with women lying and claiming they were raped in order to get men in trouble.

    There is a massive problem with women lying and claiming they were raped in order to get men in trouble.

    Bullish!

    Obviously this means RSFBA real estate prices will triple by September, as the stock speculators cash out of equities and buy shacks in Stockton. Buy now or be priced out for EVER!

    mell says

    Did you read the outcome? Raised property values. There's nothing wrong starting out with a hypothesis in either direction - the outcome is what matters.

    That wasn't the purpose of the study nor was it the conclusion which is why you couldn't even copy and paste it here. You are again attempting to be dishonest.

    I will of course cite the conclusion of the study:

    These results challenge the conventional wisdom about the spillover effects of federally subsidized housing in some ways and confirm it in others. On the one hand, the results showthat the effect of these
    housing developments on nearby property values is not consistently negative.

    HOW THE FUCK DID YOU READ THIS AS RAISED PROPERTY VALUES?????

    Indeed, with respect to two programs – Section 202 and LIHTC – the impacts are positive and persist over time for the full range of project sizes in our sample. Additionally, small public housing projects reserved for the elderly have a significant positive effect which remains stable over time.

    Section 202 & LIHTC aren't section 8. Again why are you constantly dishonest?

    Even in the case of Section 8 and public housing
    for families, (this is the shit you REALLY wanted to discuss) the impacts are not significant for small projects, and for larger projects, the initially negative effects appear to decline with time and in the case of public housing, dissipate within three years of completion. Further, while the results clearly point to negative marginal impacts of public and section 8 housing, it is interesting that the marginal impacts diminish with scale, at least for public housing.

    Simplified conclusion: Section 8 and public housing for families DECREASED property values however it's not significant and decreases with time.

    Do you know how much fucking time I waste on taking you liars to task?????

    I will repeat this one more time. THERE IS NO DEBATE BETWEEN THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT! There is ONLY the left constantly trying to convince the right what is real and what is bullshit.

    LOL, like a mosquito born in May thinks itself as the cause of global warming in northern hemisphere in the next two months of its brief life.

    Hardly. I netted 6 figures from the oil futures market back in 2008 and 2009. Where do you think the money came from?

    I also covered the trade live on this very board.

    Can't speak for the rest of the country, but we've had a whole bunch of houses for rent in my SoCal area. They are all over 45 days, sitting empty, with huge monthly price tags attached to them ($1,000 more per month than I was seeing a year ago).

    I see that rent went up, but I'm not seeing that people are rushing to pay these prices. It's like they raised the prices because of news reports that say rents are rising... But until people actually agree to pay these rents, did rents, in fact, rise?

    I know that people don't put a lot of stock in the "rent Zestimates," but according to the rent Zestimate, these houses should be going for $1,000 to $1,500 less than they are asking. Seems like a big difference. Makes me wonder where any of these people get their numbers from.

    Sit back and relax. They will always get their punishment.

    I don't believe in karma - I have no idea why anyone would, given the records of guys like Nixon, Stalin, Mao, and Trump.

    Psychopaths do isolate themselves - Stalin essentially lived out his life in a prison of his own making, but it's hard to know if he really cared.

    I think the true secret of this is not giving a shit. Looking back on the worst assholes I have known, it seems most were already miserable, which is why they were assholes. But I don't know, and I don't care, because it's boring, and they're boring and unimportant, and I don't have the time to think of people who don't amount to anaerobic bacteria in the grand scheme of things.

    It's not so much a belief that they'll inevitably pay for their sins - a belief I don't share - but an utter indifference to them one way or another. Because if you really care one way or another about that ex, or that 14-year-old who kicked your ass when you were 11, they'll own a part of your brain.

    Yawn...

    I don't rent space in my brain to assholes.

    One day, after watching a particularly abject co-worker complain about her ex-husband, long since out of her life, I resolved to stop judging my exes, to stop even thinking about my exes, for several months. A period of professional and spiritual happiness ensued. I have now made it permanent - any time the scratched-up old newsreel of pointless rehashing starts to play, I look at kitten pics, or visualize Kim Jong-Un being executed in elaborate ways.

    By the way: given the (a) totally unreliable nature of eyewitnesses (including you), and (b) the even shittier recollections we have even months after an event, you don't accurately remember what happened. So if you torment yourself at all about the past, it's like sulking over fiction.

    If you can't bring yourself to believe in Buddhist karma, try living in the present, which happens to be a Buddhist recommendation.

    Think about the worst thing someone ever said or did to you. Realize that they don't care now, and that 7 billion other people, who weren't there, don't care either, whether or not they heard about it. That leaves at most one person who cares. Why not join the other 7 billion and stop caring? Every brain cell devoted to such things leaves less room for images of Kim Jong-Un being torn to pieces by kittens.

    Using New York City property sales and property tax assessment data, they found that on average, subsidized housing is associated with a small increase in neighboring property values.

    I cannot get any clearer than that. All you posted was the opinion that the conductors of the study thought of the increase as a beneficial effect, hence they started out with the negative hypothesis. The only thing you could say about this is that the increases were not significant, which is as usual in the eye of the beholder. The fact remains that there was an increase, though, which is what we were debating. I also linked another article discussing this phenomenon. Not sure what else to say. It's like talking to a brick wall.

    The pricing action in 2008 directly contradicts/refutes this.

    Seriously? That's all you have to say about it? You aren't going to even attempt to construct an argument or even post a graph of what the hell you're talking about?

    It is proven that section 8 raises prices for rents and houses.

    Then you post this:

    It's not just the vouchers creating artificial demand, it's developers passing the costs on to non-section 8 residents. You don't need to resort to Austrian websites to find info about this ;)

    Do you realize that the real estate market in a city like San Francisco is a mirror image of every world class city on the entire planet? Even in the developing world where poverty is a way of life?

    You are so isolated and your concerns so petty. Go visit or Rio De Janero or Santiago or Delhi or Paris or Bejing or Hong Kong or Rome or Manila or Berlin or Johannesburg or Moscow or Santo Domingo or Kuala Lumpur for fuck sake and tell THEM that houses are selling for 20 times wages because of section 8.

    IT'S NOT THE FUCKING FED!!!!!!!!!

    It is the nature of ANY capitalist economy to separate a tiny privileged class of people who hoard all the capital from the 99% who try to scrape by with whatever the 1% will share.

    I desperately try not to come off as an elitist however if you damn well visit another country some day then maybe you'd see how idiotic and naive it sounds to say "It's section 8 and the fed!"

UK's GDP per capital is about the same as its past colony Hong Kong's. i'm rooting for China and Russia. they are the only few that give the bullying U.S.A (United States of Assholes) the middle finger. India is just a weak cheerleading bitch.
