This can't be right...

How can the crypto currencies be up...and the Dollar Down Under, and the Yuan, and the Euro, and just about everybody but the Pound which is only down slightly...where's the other side of this balloon?!

Commodities?  Au Ag not too impacted...

Somebody dump a sh*tload of hogs for other sh*t?   ::laughonfloor::

Even after the last cratering of prices and a return to higher (but in many cases still not above past peaks) I find this incredible -

Obamunism did so much damage to property values and jobs and wages.

If another dipstick like Obama gets control of the government again it could get fugly quick.

Still, another dipstick like that and it might not matter anyway...leverage up!

Now browsing real estate in Cedar Rapids.  Very nice to see I can get something for much cheaper than the Twin Cities.  And in that rare city that's Republican run.  And it shows.  There are no bad neighborhoods in CR.

Yeah that looks like a safe haven, might get some thru-traffic of a nefarious sort, hopefully they blow on through.  Some of the surrounding towns that have a high concentration of itinerant farm laborers primarily of Latino heritage and questionable legality have the attendant crime issues.  Cedar Rapids' primary challenge seems to be periodic flooding of the Cedar River.  I could see myself settling in the Czech Village under the right circumstances.

The meat packing plants suck in the low skilled immigrants who are a net drag on the taxpayers.  Any of them near Cedar Rapids?

Ever notice that when liberals threaten to leave the US it is always to mostly white countries with stricter immigration laws than the US?

Do what the liberals do:

The median age in Cedar Rapids is 6% lower than Iowa. In Cedar Rapids 86.69% of the population is Caucasian. In Cedar Rapids 6.21% of the population is African American. In Cedar Rapids 2.66% of the population is Asian.

Yes, just have to stay out of the flood zones.  I don't need that hassle.

I don't remember any meat packing plants.  The major employers are Rockwell Collins and the various oats plants. 

It's big enough to have all my favorite places, except Ikea, and small enough to not have the dysfunction setting into the Twin Cities.
