This story exemplifies WHAT is wrong with America TODAY.
Since we, in this country, have in the past, and most recently
mandated the state, local, and federal government's false promise
of "Cradle to Grave Security", we are less free, less productive,
and less happy.
HELLO ? Is there anybody home in the Land of the Proud and the Free?
Property Values and Rents are a direct function of market place economics.
In other words, 'you get what you pay for'.
It is a small wonder that the Asians and Europeans are literally eating our
lunch in the Global economy. The poor and pathetic people of this country
have banded together as an unruly mob and are extorting value from those who
work, produce valuable goods and services, and PAY TAXES!
Meritocracy? I call it a Kleptocracy!
For those of you who are so steeped in their lower class resentment that
you would not know a solid argument, even if it bit you on the nose...
I have a simple message :
PROSPERITY CAN NOT BE LEGISLATED.

"Property Values and Rents are a direct function of market place economics." and "Prosperity can not be legislated."
So why are the prosperous, I mean the rich, constantly asking for legislative privileges, like zoning changes to increase their profits, and legislation to lower their taxes. and legislation to exempt them from production rules, like safety or the use of poisons.
And crooked bankers who cheated on home loans, is that marketplace economics? or is it lying, cheating, stealing. Is all that market economics?

Huh? What on Earth are you talking about? Are you kidding?
And how do we have cradle to grave security in America? I wish you people who talk in these kinds of code words would just once explain to people in plain words what you were talking about, because it seems to me that the meritocracy you talk about is a diversion to constant demands for special privileges such as lower taxes and political favoritism and the "Cradle to Grave Security" you mention is an attempt to protect people from being trampled and killed by people who just do not think or care about average people. It's merely another version of trying to protect might makes right.
