Oversaturated With Inventory, Slow Sales And Dropping Prices Is The Norm

A report from Money Wise. “Buyers in many parts of the country are diving full force into the housing market. ‘[Rates] are still incredibly low in people’s minds,’ says Corey Burr, a real estate agent in Washington, D.C. Buyers feel like ‘they’re getting very close to free money. Our market is still white hot,’ says Burr.”

From ABC Action News in Florida. “Over a year into the pandemic, Tampa Bay’s housing market is selling at a head-spinning pace. Not since the bubble of the early 2000s have we seen prices increase this much, this fast. Real Estate Agent Sarah Clark who works with buyers of all budgets, says the market is so hot in Tampa right now that house hunters often don’t have time to negotiate. ‘We’re talking days, hours, sometimes even minutes,’ Clark says.”

“Tampa Real Estate Agent Vincent Arcuri is one of the most well-known agents in Tampa. He’s seen it all, from the bust to the boom. ‘We always see these cycles in real estate, and I think we’re in a bubble right now 100 %,’ says Arcuri. ‘What comes up must come down.'”

The Los Angeles Times on Florida. “LeBron James’ former home in Miami just sold for $12.75 million. The four-time NBA champion sold it for $13.4 million in 2015. Records show he originally listed it for $17 million.”

The Augusta Free Press. “Low inventory and high demand is the order of the day in Northern Virginia. On the other hand, the condo market is not doing so well. Oversaturated with inventory, slow sales, and dropping prices is the norm in this market area, but it is a great time to buy a condo as an investor. The same trend can be noticed in the rental market, which is also oversaturated and slow. It is believed that most of these trends are being pushed by Covid restrictions which limit the quality of life for condo residents.”

From Mansion Global on New York. “Though sales have picked up over the last few months in New York, pricing has not. The median sales price for a luxury Manhattan residence was $4.95 million for the first quarter, down 11.6% compared to the last three months of 2020 and down 13.2% year over year, according to the Elliman report. Even before the pandemic, inventory in New York City was high, especially for new developments.”

“Many developers are also offering more concessions for buyers, deal sweeteners that include covering closing costs, storage units or discounted parking spaces, added Vickey Barron of Compass. ‘They’re all doing that and if some of them say they aren’t, I’m not sure I believe them,’ Ms. Barron explained. ‘It’s a numbers game…if there’s an overabundance of one particular item, it’s going to go on sale. So they are going to give concessions to make up the numbers.'”

The Business Journal. “A new report analyzing the health of the 100 largest housing markets in the U.S. reveals that Fresno is a top performer using one certain metric. The April RealtyHop Market Health Report analyzed more than 300,000 listings on the website to calculate the difference in price between when real estate listings are first put on the market and when they are eventually sold.”

“Fresno came in at No. 24, moving up from a previous rank of 29. In Fresno it took a 2.65% reduction in the median listing price to sell a home, for a median price change of about $10,050. ‘In theory, stronger markets should exhibit fewer price drops and smaller percentage discounts, while weaker markets should show the opposite. Our results explore this metric and shed light on the market health of each major city across the U.S. right now,’ according to the RealtyHop report.”

“By that calculation, Henderson, Nevada came in as the hottest housing market for April, with a 2.18% average price reduction per listing to sell, or $8,999 in dollar terms. Irvine was the only California city to break the top 5, coming in at No. 4 with a price reduction of 2.3%, or $20,000, to attract offers. Detroit, Michigan was the coldest housing market last month with an average price reduction of 7.69%.”

  1. ‘Henderson, Nevada came in as the hottest housing market for April, with a 2.18% average price reduction per listing to sell’

    Wa? How can be? Every shack in the country is selling with multiple offers way over asking and the squirrels WILL BE FED! Unless of course, somebody is a lion.

    1. It’s just one of many craterisms. DebtDonkeys, Degenerate Gamblers, Housing Hens, lying realtors wrote an entire book of craterisms.

      The title of the buck is Cluck Cluck Cluck.

  2. ‘the market is so hot in Tampa right now that house hunters often don’t have time to negotiate. ‘We’re talking days, hours, sometimes even minutes’

    I’ve been waiting on the minutes thing.

  3. Portland, OR Housing Prices Crater 18% As Industry Scrambles To Conceal Collapsing Demand And Plunging Prices Across The US

    https://www.movoto.com/or/97203/market-trends/

    As one Portland broker stated, “Homeowners should slam their fingers in the door to detract from the eternal financial pain they’re about to experience as prices continue to plummet.”

  4. ‘They’re all doing that and if some of them say they aren’t, I’m not sure I believe them’

    I believe that Vickey with an ‘E’ is suggesting some NYC real estate people may not be entirely truthful. Oh they are talking a good boom up there. Facts don’t back it up, but still.

  5. Today could be the day…

    If Chauvin is acquitted, many shoes will be stolen. If Chauvin is convicted, many shoes will be stolen.

    I heard Jesus Floyd’s funeral live on NPR last year and it was like listening to the British press covering Princess Diana’s death, LOLZ.

      1. Star Tribune — “President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he is “praying the verdict is the right verdict” in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and that he believed the case, which has gone to the jury and put the nation on edge, to be “overwhelming.”

        One, you’re not the elected president. Two, the riots are gonna happen regardless of the verdict.

        Will the last taxpayer leaving Minneapolis please turn out the lights.

    1. “Facts Emerging from the Derek Chauvin Trial Show a Different Picture than the One Portrayed by Media”

      Under cross-examination, defense lawyer Eric Nelson asked if drug use could cause hypoxia, and the doctor said it could. Mr. Nelson inquired about Floyd’s high carbon dioxide levels, and whether that could be caused by Fentanyl. Dr. Langenfeld said that it could; the “primary reason” Fentanyl is so dangerous is that it depresses the lungs. A high carbon dioxide level causes shortness of breath, even without stress. The doctor also said that Fentanyl causes sleepiness, and Mr. Nelson said in his Opening Statement that he would produce a witness to testify that Floyd was very sleepy before the police showed up.”…

      …Mr. Nelson showed the lieutenant a photo of a paramedic checking George Floyd’s carotid pulse by feeling the side of Floyd’s neck while Officer Chauvin still had his knee on him. “In your experience, would you be able to touch the carotid artery if the knee was on the carotid artery?” Lt. Mercil replied, “No, sir.”

      The defense then showed a screenshot from one of the officers’ body cameras, that showed Officer Chauvin holding Floyd down. Lt. Mercil agreed that Officer Chauvin’s shin appeared to be across Floyd’s shoulder blade, not on his neck. There were two other screenshots with different timestamps that also showed Officer Chauvin’s shin across Floyd’s shoulder blade.

      When he looked at a fourth photo that showed Officer Chauvin’s knee, the lieutenant said this seemed to be a “hold,” not a neck restraint. He conceded that it’s possible he had to hold someone down for 10 minutes in his own police career, and that he had held people down while waiting for Emergency Medical Services. He has trained officers to do this…

      …“In cross examination, Eric Nelson asked an intriguing question: Was Chief Arradondo familiar with “Camera Perspective Bias.” The chief said he was not. Camera Perspective Bias refers to the fact that the point of view from which you see an event can change your opinion of it.

      Two videos were shown in court, both separately and side-by-side. The side-by-side version matched the timing of the two videos, so you could see the same event from two points of view. One video was taken by 17-year-old Darnella Frazier with her phone and the other was video from Officer J. Alexander Kueng’s body camera. From Darnella Frazier’s perspective, it looks like Officer Chauvin had his knee on George Floyd’s neck — but Police Chief Arradondo agreed that from the perspective of Officer Kueng’s body cam, Officer Chauvin’s knee was on Floyd’s shoulder blade. Up until that moment, the chief said he thought the knee had been on Floyd’s neck.”

      1. A mistrial was discussed Friday and yesterday. The judge should have granted a change of venue or at least sequestered the jury for the entire trial. A hung jury wouldn’t be surprising given the issues of intent, causation and excessive force. We’ll find out shortly.

        1. The jury abdicated its responsibility. As an attorney, I don’t understand how someone could be guilty on all three of those counts. How are they not in the alternative?!

          1. Because the prosecution could rely upon the jurors inabiloty to recognize logical inconsistencies. I’m sure they’re all proud graduates of Mr. Banker’s favorite institutions: American government schools.

          2. the jurors inabiloty to recognize logical inconsistencies

            The jury’s decision wasn’t based on reason or logic. It was based on fear. It gave the mob (e.g., Mad Max) exactly what it demanded.

      2. “In your experience, would you be able to touch the carotid artery if the knee was on the carotid artery?” Lt. Mercil replied, “No, sir.”

        The standard restraint procedure is knee pressure is applied to the cervical spine, not the carotid artery or trachea.

  6. “…Irvine was the only California city to break the top 5, coming in at No. 4 with a price reduction of 2.3%, or $20,000, to attract offers…”

    What’s really amazing is that many of these homes, (zip 92603,92604,92612) are sitting empty, sometimes for years.

    Pure speculation!

    1. “What’s really amazing is that many of these homes, (zip 92603,92604,92612) are sitting empty, sometimes for years.”

      Ditto for San Jose in neighborhoods like Almaden, Willow Glen, etc., which are usually owned by wealthy Asians. A friend has a couple of these empty homes on his street, maintained by landscapers, pool cleaners, etc., pouring in the money. They’ve placed their bets on Powell, Yellen and King Dollar.

      1. They’ve placed their bets on Powell, Yellen and King Dollar

        It’s worked for the last ten years which is a pretty good run. I believed in working hard and saving and being sensible with money. Which hasn’t worked. And I don’t think it is going to work anytime in the near future. If you want to get ahead financially you have to work the central banking system. So all I can do is congratulate the people who recognized that before I did…even if they really didn’t know what they were doing.

        1. working hard and saving and being sensible with money

          Hate to break it to you, but that worked just fine. The key is to need less than you earn, and want even less than that. If you learn to live without debt, the bankers can’t touch you.

          1. I think what he’s saying is that had he bought a shanty in the right market that it would have appreciated handsomely and he could have sold it for a tidy profit.

          2. “Hate to break it to you, but that worked just fine“

            Anyone who invested in flipping over priced real estate in SoCal, over valued FANG stocks, and cryptocurrency electrons has outperformed 99.9% of people working at even respectable professional jobs saving a significant portion of their income.

            “The key is to need less than you earn, and want even less than that. If you learn to live without debt, the bankers can’t touch you.”

            Thank you for the words of wisdom. I had never thought of that.

          3. If you learn to live without debt, the bankers can’t touch you.

            Actually, they can. Even if you never signed on Mr. Banker’s dotted line special, he was still able to get rents to dissying heights.

          4. had never thought of that.

            Not said for your benefit. “Outperform” doesn’t enter much to my thinking.

            I just had a flashback to driving south to camp in the Carolinas in my old Airstream. There was a surprise freezing rain and I slowed down. I was passed by dozens of high performance cars. Later, I drove by all of them as they lay in the ditch.

            Outperformance is sometimes short lived.

          5. get rents to dissying heights.

            Isn’t that spelled with some “z”s? Anyway, I didn’t choose to pay high rents either. I guess I’m on the outside looking in.

        2. We’re also talking about foreigners, and their faith is in the U.S. dollar and our justice system.

  7. All these people moving to the desert. Good luck with that. When the water runs out, what will your house be worth?

      1. And if our water resources are already being depleted, why are we importing millions more Central Americans?

        Because “reasons”. I also think that most of the Nuevos Americanos are going to be settled outside the southwest.

      2. Lake Mead and Lake Powell surface elevations have been falling for years due to poor snowfall Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The low energy head also means low output from both dam’s hydroelectric generators. Of course the housing developers haven’t slowed their pace.

    1. The housing bubble is driving people further and further East in San Diego county. You can put in a well in many of those places that will provide water for at least a lifetime.

    1. The other day when I was out hiking I saw the pine beetles had bored some words into a tree. On closer inspection, it said “Realtors are liars.”

  8. An excerpt from the white privileged life of…

    Joseph Chute
    1926 – 2021

    It was typical of Joe’s style. Never one to sit back and wait for life to come to him, Joe was still underage during World War II when he forged his father’s signature on the release allowing him to volunteer for the U.S. Navy. He became a Navy Corpsman and served as a medic with the 5th Marine Division, Second Marine Battalion during the Battle of Iwo Jima. While tending to the fallen on the beach there, Joe was himself seriously wounded and evacuated to a hospital boat. He was awarded the Purple Heart for his service.

    Upon returning from the war, Joe completed his high school education at The Edgewood School in Greenwich where he, along with numerous other returning veterans, completed the roster of the school’s championship football team. One can only imagine the trepidation other teams likely felt facing Edgewood’s “high school” squad of battle-hardened vets. He was awarded a football scholarship to Fairleigh Dickenson University but chose instead to pursue the electrical trade.

    It was during this journey towards becoming a Master Electrician that Joe and Maisie met. It was also the reason for their extended courtship – they did not marry until 1952. A man of fierce dedication, Joe refused to ask Maisie to marry him until he was certain he would be able to provide for her and their family. Of course he accomplished both goals.
    A lifelong member of Local Union 501 and Local 3 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Joe would have received his 75-year service pin this summer. He left his mark on buildings large and small in Manhattan (including the 1964 World’s Fair), Westchester and Connecticut and loved pointing out the corporate headquarters that he played a role in building.

    But nothing was as important to Joe as family. He and Maisie continued their love of dancing throughout their life together – you could always find both of them on the dance floor – and he always made time for their daughter, Deborah, even after long days working construction, ensuring she learned such valuable life lessons as the gift of service, the value of a good book, and the art of throwing a spiral.

    Joe was the definition of a true gentleman and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

  9. “Buyers in many parts of the country are diving full force into the housing market. ‘[Rates] are still incredibly low in people’s minds,’ says Corey Burr, a real estate agent in Washington, D.C.

    Those same “buyers” will be walking away in their millions once the Fed’s Everything Bubble bursts and their insanely overpriced shacks start shedding Yellen Bux valuations.

    1. And then we’ll get to relive the acrimony of the collapse of Housing Bubble 1.0:

      – angry underwater homeowners walking away in droves

      – charges of racis’ lending

      – politicians pandering for bailouts

      – central bankers trotting out the too-big-to-fail / systematically risky argument to justify even bigger bailouts than the ones already propping up risk assets, like bubble-valued housing

      Where does it end?

  10. “A new report analyzing the health of the 100 largest housing markets in the U.S. reveals that Fresno is a top performer using one certain metric.

  12. This is an interesting article in Marketwatch today:
    ——————
    I don’t have the funds or the gusto’: My wife painted our house in Rustic Western — now Realtors want us to whitewash our lives away
    ————–

    Basically, the seller did major decorating, but now that they want to sell, realtors want them to do the usual Minimalist Millenial Gray reno to get more offers. The sellers just want to sell and be done with it. The article is whiny, but it brings up a question: how much reno should a seller do? And does a seller need to list a house “as is” 😮 just because of paint color?

    IMO it’s not worth the hassle to spend $30K on a reno just to sell for $35K more. That just puts free money into the seller’s pocket. If I were the seller, I would just clean and declutter, get a good inspection, and put $5-10K into small repairs. Then I would list the house at a lower price and tell buyers not to expect any cosmetic work at the lower price. But that compromise could be a trap, where the house costs too much for a flipper to want, but isn’t move-in ready for a lazy buyer. What would you guys do?

    1. That just puts free money into the seller’s pocket.

      I think you mean realtor’s pocket.

    2. “… now Realtors want us to whitewash our lives away…”

      This one doesn’t even begin to pass the smoke test.

      If the overall market is so hot right now, why does the homeowner have to do anything other the open the door to let in the onrushing crowds?

      For example elsewhere in todays post, “…the market is so hot in Tampa right now that house hunters often don’t have time to negotiate. ‘We’re talking days, hours, sometimes even minutes…”

      At the very least, you would think the REIConplex could get their stories straight.

    3. When my father passed a nephew insisted on doing a major reno on dad’s house that took a year, and after costs it came out exactly the same proceeds.

      1. This is exactly what a farmer told me about using chemicals to produce higher yields, i.e., the additional income goes to the chemical companies.

  13. Government being taken over by Globalist Monopolies, that have corrupted the function of Government , for the agendas of these Entities, is apparent now.

    The insanity of this power grab can be Judged by the insane fruits of this sort of insurrection .

    These are not Entities that should rule because they are nuts, inhumane, and they plan a Dictorship of the populations, that wasn’t voted for. The Great Reset and the 4th big industrial revolution of a One World Order of rule by these madhatters is a Nazi like vision of forced compliance. The problem is their agendas take freedoms and choice from populations that would be harmed by this control they plan.

    And the worse part is they can’t be trusted to not harm because they look at populations like ants or cattle to be played with by their social engineering plans.

    Who in the hell are they but a bunch of control freaks that have been ripping off economies for centuries now by their rigged games to make slaves out of societies of people. They are the ones that have looted by their rigged games of parasitic cheating of the people .

    And its the blood and sweat of the workers that made them rich, but they only credit how clever they are in the amassing of wealth at the expense of Society. Rockefeller writes extensively on how to become successful by the Monopoly blueprint, eliminate all competition, and make millions of slaves make you rich.
    So, Monopolies are a great evil and it isn’t capitalism and it isn’t communism either.

  14. A Pearl clutching head line from CNN:

    ‘Dire warning’ for the planet: Coal is powering the economic recovery

    Of course, guess who’s burning the most?

    China is expected to account for 50% of global demand growth for coal. Use in the United States and Europe is also rising but is expected to stay “well below pre-crisis levels.”

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that China won’t be doing much to reduce their carbon output, while we will be expected to bend over backwards. So, please stay home and don’t go anywhere, while China continues to stay open.

    1. 11F degrees of global warmism down here in South Denver this morning. If electric vehicle owners want to pay me to install chargers so they can charge their vehicle with electricity produced from burning coal, I am going to take their money.

      1. Def been warmer in Montana last 30 yrs, just saying.

        Too bad because those *entire months below zero* we used to get helped keep out undesirables.

    2. China won’t be doing much to reduce their carbon output

      They don’t have to, they’re already Communist.

  15. From the LA Times piece regarding LeBron James’ mansion:
    Photo 10/15 depicts the master bedroom, titled “primary bedroom.”

    1. LeBron is a fraud.

      He’s just another woke kneeler hypocrite sucking up to (and sucking off) China for his sportsball paycheck, knowing full well that China has literally enslaved its minority population to pick cotton.

        1. I tried watching March Madness, but I quickly realized that I didn’t give a flying f@rt, so I turned it off.

  16. I guess you guys don’t want to know about the new Indian variant of COVID. It’s a double mutation, both on the spike protein. It’s so contagious that it’s out-competing the Brazilian and UK variants. Indians are dropping like flies (they can’t cremate them fast enough, and that’s not a joke), and it’s already been seen in San Francisco. So far there’s “no evidence” of vaccine escape, but we all know know what “no evidence” means. 🙄 Israel reports “some” efficacy (probably Pfizer), but there’s not enough information.

    Britain just shut down travel from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh. Come on, Biden, now’s your chance. Are you going to shut down travel too? Or are you going to let this in? Can we blame you like you blamed Trump?

    1. CDC website sez:

      Travelers should avoid all travel to India.
      Because of the current situation in India even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to India.

        1. Why do quotes always look so strange here, too big, and too grayed out to read.

          FYI the JoshuaTree extension makes them a little smaller/denser than they are by default. Give it a try, if you’re not currently using it

    2. Stupid question: why isn’t India at least trying to use hydroxychloroquine? Or Ivermectin? They don’t have the same political constraints in India.

      1. Stupid question: I scanned some English language Indian websites. Both are being used there by some practitioners, but experts in Indian have expressed skepticism as to whether these drugs accomplish much. Predominant impression I got from my scan is that the medical system in India is collapsing under the load of severely ill patients.

        1. So Ivermectin doesn’t work? Ugh, we can’t seem to get good data anywhere.

          There appear to be three mutations on the Indian strain:
          E484Q: Very similar to E484K, which are seen in the South Africa and Brazil strains, some evidence of vaccine escape.
          L452R: seen in California strain, more contagious.
          P681R: more efficient entry into the cell, “partial” evasion of antibodies.

          Vaccine escape: vaccines are less effective
          More contagious: needs higher % of vaccination to achieve herd immunity.

          India has been vaccinating like mad, BUT they are mostly using Astra-Zeneca, a homegrown Indian vaccine, and a little Sputnik. The A-Z vaccine is not effective against the South African strain, and one of the Indian mutations –E484– is the same as the South African mutation. So, is India is using the wrong vaccine?!?

          And on another note, the J&J vaccine is 64% effective against the SA mutation, and appears to be at least 85% effective against hospitalization against SA, Brazil, and original COVID. In other words, unless the FDA comes back with restrictions, I’m still going to aim for the J&J vaccine.

      2. Come on, this is India we are talking about. Step #1 is to stop pooping on the streets. Basic hygiene and sanitation would go a long way in India.

    3. they can’t cremate them fast enough

      Fewer than 2000 a day are dying in India, if the worldometers webpage can be trusted. Considering they have over 1 billion inhabitants, that isn’t a lot.

      Anyway, sounds like the UK government has another excuse to keep everything locked down. I’m beginning to doubt that I will ever see the UK relatives again (face to face).

    4. “don’t want to know”

      Don’t know, and don’t care.

      I’m half vaxxed with the Pfizer poison, my body makes its own vitamin D from the sun, I exercise, and I’m eating roast chicken and broccoli for lunch right now.

      If the CCP Flu was ever about public health (hint: it’s not) all the fats would be quarantined, chained to a treadmill, and fed only fruits and vegetables until they can stop being such a risk to themselves and others.

      Reddit needs to put down the fork and shave its neckbeard. Some sunlight and soap wouldn’t hurt either.

    5. The globalist scum (looking at you, Pedo Joe) still need to bring in Indian labor to displace American tech workers, so don’t expect travel from India to be stopped.

      1. Seriously, 600 mutant strains. That sounds like a movie I saw one time where the bug couldn’t be stopped and it would kill the human race if the secret formula wasn’t discovered to stop it. Wasn’t that a movie, or am I combining two different movies?

        Now I’m wondering just how much movies have programmed people into acceptance of far fetched stuff. Or maybe these movies have traumatized people into a state of unconscious fear, making them suspend their rational thinking.

        And the dreaded double mutation , oh no.

    6. a double mutation

      So two nucleotide changes that may not even change the primary, secondary or tertiary structure of the spike protein? Double mutation sounds scary and is being used to instill fear in those without scientific understanding.

      1. “Double mutation sounds scary and is being used to instill fear in those without scientific understanding.”

        Or any kind of understanding, which means most people.

    7. “Come on, Biden, now’s your chance. Are you going to shut down travel too? Or are you going to let this in?”

      Global travel is why we’ll need covid boosters for a couple of years.

      1. for a couple of years.

        I’m actually happy to see you say that. Eventually this thing will be eradicated — or at worst reduced to just another common cold.

        1. Received jab#2 last Saturday morning. Then I worked all day on hot concrete wearing a straw hat in our 85° weekend heatwave. No issues.

    8. India has like a billion too many people. Something at some point has got to give. The world is overpopulated.

      1. At the current rate it would take the virus over 1000 years to kill everyone in India. I suppose the fear is that the daily death rate will become much more than 2000.

        1. They are doing about the same as Canada, on a deaths per million basis. The Canadians are afraid of “cases” rather than deaths.

  17. They’re baaaack.

    Just heard a TV commercial in the background the likes of which I have not heard in this part of Region IV (West Palm Beach area) since about 2006.

    “Put your newfound home equity to work for you with a cash out refi!”

  18. Who here like being lorded over and lectured to by that little bastard Fauci? I know there’s one but anyone else?

    1. Ooh ooh! Me me me meeeeeeeeeeeee! I’m down on my knees every day to Tony!

      Look, Fauxi is a terrible speaker and flip flops on science. But I still trust info like “The FDA/CDC is meeting this Friday.”

          1. 1. Make nebulous statement re: some disease.
            2. Own vaccine patents.
            3. Profit.
            4. Cover your lying, globalist bureaucratic renter butt with more nebulous virtue-signaling statements knowing the DNC propagandists formerly pretending to be journalists won’t ask you anything harder than, “Why should every rational person cower in fear over the common biological term ‘mutation’?”
            5. Profit more.

    1. Up in Denver today near Broadway / Alameda lots of drivers and pedestrians wearing masks while alone.

      1. I’ve started to see these male cucks in masks driving solo that you have mentioned in the past.

      2. I saw a woman out for a walk the other day with a sun umbrella and wearing a mask. Likely stuck in Piaget’s “Concrete-Operational Stage,” i.e., thinking is limited to real situations (the here and now), cannot reason hypothetically or solve abstract problems.

  19. Has there been much news coverage re: virtual rent moratoriums, foreclosure moratoriums & the like which are due to COVID-19 unemployment problems? I imagine it would be impossible to sell a home occupied by deadbeat renters that the current owner/bagholder is barred from evicting. This would create an artificial shortage of inventory, IMO.

  20. With politicians and NPR commentators weighing in on their preferred outcomes to courtroom trials before an impartial jury has weighed the evidence and delivered a verdict, is America’s justice system in danger of being replaced by mob rule?

    1. Yes.

      And the best response to all of it is to not contribute property tax revenue or sales tax revenue to Democrat Party cities where mob rule prevails.

      STOP GIVING THEM MONEY.

        1. Let ’em. You must revoke consent. It is now an ethical duty for people who claim to love liberty.

          Besides, they are drawing up the blueprints of their own demise.

          Onward, Soviet!

        Antifa/BLM Flyer Instructs Portland Rioters To “Rage” for George Floyd “No Matter What The Verdict Is”

        “No Streamers. No Peace Police. Just Rage,” the flyer continues.

        The poster warns rioters to have the National Lawyers Guild phone number on hand in case of arrest, and are also told to “stay with a buddy.”

        “You have the right to protest,” the sign says, indicating those caught committing criminal acts could attempt to use the First Amendment’s freedom of assembly as a defense.

        Breaking911 reports the account that posted the image, @RisingPDX, subsequently removed the post. It’s not currently visible on their account as of writing.

    2. Of course Mob Justice is endangering the Justice system, and it might be endangering more than just the Justice system.

  21. In all this coverage of Saint George and the others who are hunted down and murdered because of their skin color I haven’t heard…

    don’t commit a crime and resist arrest

    one time.

    Sure seems like that message would save some lives if it was repeated as often as the “Black Lives matter” are.

      1. If a white person resisted arrest and suffered bad consequences as a result of the police response, it would make the local evening news, and then soon be forgotten. It wouldn’t become the rallying cry of a protest movement.

        1. In my little burg an 80 lb white granny with dementia was man handled by a cop at WalMart because she spaced out and forgot to pay for $10 of merch. He dislocated her shoulder and broker her arm. This happened last year and it only made the news because her family just filed a lawsuit.

          Anyway, no angry marches, no looting or burning, etc. Foot Locker managers can rest at ease. The city council is busy engaging in damage control, and has promised to train officers on how to recognize when an arrestee is mentally impaired. I expect she will get a cash award and that will be the last we’ll hear of it. She was placed in a “memory care” facility since the incident.

          1. “In my little burg an 80 lb white granny with dementia was man handled by a cop at WalMart because she spaced out and forgot to pay for $10 of merch. He dislocated her shoulder and broker her arm.”

            She had it coming.

            After all she was an 80 lb white granny with dementia.

            It would only have been riot worthy news with a multi million dollar settlement had it been an 80 lb black granny with dementia.

          2. It would only have been riot worthy news with a multi million dollar settlement had it been an 80 lb black granny with dementia a 300 lb black felon going for the cop’s gun while resisting arrest on assault charges.

            There, fixed it.

  22. Democrats, BLM Unsatisfied With Chauvin Guilty Verdict: “Justice Will NEVER Be Served”

    Gavin Newsom
    @GavinNewsom
    George Floyd would still be alive if he looked like me. That must change.

    No conviction can repair the harm done to the Floyd family, but today’s verdict provides accountability.

    Now, we must continue our work to root out the racial injustice that haunts our society.

    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) said point-blank that Chauvin’s guilty conviction is “not justice” for Floyd.

    Barack Obama
    @BarackObama
    Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more. Michelle and I send our prayers to the Floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice that George and so many others have been denied.

    MSNBC’s Jason Johnson melted down over the guilty verdict, saying he has no “sense of satisfaction” because he doesn’t think it shows the “system working.”

    Curtis Houck
    @CurtisHouck
    MSNBC’s Jason Johnson is FURIOUS with the verdict, calling it “a cultural make-up call”: “I’m not happy. I’m not pleased. I don’t have any sense of satisfaction. I don’t think this is the system working…This is the justice system trying to say, hey, this is one bad apple.”

    1. Multi-Millionares virtue signalling would they change their minds if protestors burned down their gated communities instead of footlockers ?

      1. “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function,” Cahill added later. “I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful and in a manner that is consistent with their oath to the Constitution, to respect a coequal branch of government.”
        “Their failure to do so, I think, is abhorrent, but I don’t think it’s prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury,” he said, adding that “a congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot.”

        1. I don’t think it’s prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury,” he said, adding that “a congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot.”

          It’s more than just one opinion from one Congresswoman, and he knows it. Threats of riots were well known since the day of the incident.

          1. The former residence of a witness was vandalized.

            One juror lives in Brooklyn Center, the cite of recent protests.

      1. A rational person could see that the person with the knife had to be subdued. This is why I don’t like to see a police officer’s actions being reviewed in courtrooms by civilians with no experience in dangerous situations. Pilots are fortunate in that their actions under review are done so by others with piloting experience.

        1. “A rational person could see that the person with the knife had to be subdued.”

          Unfortunately, there seems to be a shortage of rational people lately.

    1. Love the Lep. Por Some Sugar on Me: melody of choice for women with husband’s who like private dances.

  23. Ok, so all systems based on merit are considered Racist now. So the systems should be based on your skin color ? You don’t have to earn your position . And even criminal Justice is based on your skin color.
    Criminals are exalted , while law enforcement is demonized.
    The Democrats are trying to change the Judicial system by packing the Court, having Mob Justice, and the constant promotion of unequal Justice.

    The Media and the Mob not interested in the facts ,but just false narratives to create irrational division
    that might lead to race wars or Civil War.

    A war is already being waged against the White Race , which isn’t rational at all.
    It’s really a War against the middle class in the US who would be the biggest opposition to take over by Monopolies/Commie insurrectionist.

    And than you add the Medical Tyranny to the equation and its a full blown assault on the US Citizens. None of its rational or justified or based on facts or proof, and censorship of facts or dispute is necessary in this power grab. Its fraud by powers that want to take over.
    People like Bill Gates who want to dictate your life and even what you will be allowed to eat. People like Soros that want open borders and a One World order of Dictorship. People like Klaus Schwab who want to impose a Great Reset , that Citizens didn’t vote for , that would take freedom of choice.
    The insurrectionist have been working a long time on this corruption of US Government and Government Agencies.

    They have come out in the open now and even tell you what their goals are, which are pretty creepy and freaky and maybe even depopulation agendas.

    If you look at agenda 21 going back 20 years it said that 500 million population World wide would be ideal in sustainable earth. Since we have over 7 billion on the Globe, than what could that mean?

    Could it mean that these control freaks want to eliminate a good percentage of the population, or sterilize the populations or what? Bill Gates has talked about population elimination for a long time now , mostly targeting certain groups like older people in his rhetoric.

    I really don’t trust the agendas of these People . Who are they to threaten populations of people with their vision of life for populations. And its noticeable that all these freaks are old themselves. Biden, Pelosi, Shummer, Soros, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Clintons, Bernie Sanders, etc. What the hell is going on here ?

    1. Bill Gates has talked about population elimination for a long time now , mostly targeting certain groups like older people in his rhetoric.

      It sure would go a long way to solving the pension/retirement crisis. Dead people don’t need Social Security or Medicare.

      1. And why would it be Bill Gates business about Government obligations like Social Security. Does it affect him when he has all the money in the World.

        1. Does it affect him when he has all the money in the World.

          Indirectly, yes, it does. Medicare is about to become insolvent. If you can get SS and Medicare back into big surpluses, that is a windfall of free money for the government to spend, and transfer to people like him.

          Plus, he just wants to get rid of people, period. Or as others have put so succinctly: He wants you dead. Since Boomers seem to be so universally hated these days, if they suddenly die off the masses will most likely cheer their demise. An easy sell.
