    Amusing Clinton story about you don't always get what you ask for.

    Nothing like BROTHERLY LOVE Bill. :p

    On a serious note...can complaining people ever be satisfied
    by mainstream America...I don't think they can...complaining
    is what they do best.

    I'm thinking...how many poor black people sold property in that
    neighborhood and are now on easy street in the cheaper real estate
    areas of the south...sometimes you have to search for the good in these stories.

    Hogwash...wealth and greed knows no party. In fact, i bet a study would show that the political alignment of the wealthy landowners in the cities coincides with the parties in power at the time.

    I would bet that the longer a party was in power...the more wealthy people of the same party there are.

    That's because Republicans have more money than Democrats because Republicans are smarter.

    Or greedier, QuiGon. Or to use nicer language, more concerned about the accumulation of assets. I guess it all depends where you're coming from :)

    Very true...what I was saying to NEM was that many times Uncle Sam $$$ is available for redevelopment of old property or purchased property. The politically astute...who have connections find ways to get their hands on that money easier than let's say you or I.

    I am convinced that cities where the same party has been in control for some time will show greater property ownership from the same party...or at least the elite buildings will have some connection to which party was in power.

    I think that's fair to say...I'm digging to see if I am right or full of crap.:confused:
