So the queasy decor thrown in by those builders is certainly portentous…

And it isn’t merely unimaginative small-world indoctrination. It’s debatably heritable acquired lending deficiency syndrome by any other name.

The middle class lost money in the stock market, and they are not the ones who have made money in the recent market upturn. Also, unemployment is still high, and people are still nervous. Most of the money that our government created out of nowhere still has not fallen into the hands of the middle class. It’s too bad that some of that money couldn’t have been used to create jobs.

It is quite ingenious to offer a Disney Themed room to a home buyer as I know a lot of people whose children want a Disney room.

Yeah, that sure is a good sign for economy, alright. No wonder they are going to extend the tax credit for anther year (through the 2010 elections).
