"There should be a law, move to FL, must become a fan of a FL team and swear off the previous team from where you left."

Moving from Texas, I could never adopt the local teams. Cowboy fan for life!

Muzosi, > i think it's only fair to spread the wealth around a little. they gave a large chunk to their friends and now give a quarter of that to the common folk just to stop them asking "where is my bailout?" i'd rather have a socialist than a crook.

The real crooks are those who take hard-earned money from people who worked for it and give it to their constituents in the form of bridges to nowhere and social entitlements.

Call them out on it, like Joe the Plumber tried to do, and you'll get crushed by the media.

Socialism is not too much different from communism. Both rely on personality cults to replace the profit motive they necessarily killed for the "good of society."

Bush was never a real executive. He was a front man with the Bush name.

Ted, > S. Californians know how to play this game.....they've played it before.

I could guess, but it'd be better if you explained it yourself, if you don't mind.

I heard he's a Phillies fan.

"The real crooks are those who take hard-earned money from ME and give it to their constituents in the form of bridges to nowhere and social entitlements."

Fixed.

This is S. CA's third housing bubble in 30 years. Like the stock market, when a real estate bubble bursts, the selling becomes extreme and the bottom is overshot. When that happens, there are always people with money waiting to buy up. Investors in S. CA are particularly savvy to this process. They determined that a bottom was at hand and are acting accordingly.

In fact, KBH, a CA builder and one I own, has been responding nicely to yesterday's report.

I couldn't even be a Chargers fan when they got to the Superbowl! Here in Utah, the "local" team is the Broncos.
