Mar 1st 2011 5:34PM Has anyone head of the word "refinery"? We can build them. We have the technology and more than enough manpower. Build 100 of them and we wont have an oil crisis. Put people to work, sell cheap oil and good bye terrorist oil sellers. How about more wind and water turbines for energy? How about passing a law on gas guzzling cars. I say its time for a hybrid in every driveway. any gas guzzler should be against the law. There is so much we can do. After all. we made the ipod and the iphone.
Feb 27th 2011 10:25PM I drive a Prius and it still takes $30 to fill up. Anyone out there read that BP and Exxon had the biggest profit they ever had? Hm. So gas going up is a great thing for them. They love using the middle east to raise the prices. We have plenty of oil and gas here to keep the prices down. Obama!!! do you ever fill your own car up? I guess not. Noone in Washington does. They could care less about the price of fuel. They dont pay for it anyway. As a matter of fact.They get paid off by gas companies to keep the prices high. Also, the speculators on wall street are making a killing on this.
Feb 20th 2011 9:22AM can we use that STUPIC XVWFWF#$%^& WORD "VIRAL" ONE MORE TIME PLEASE!!!
You didnt use it enough in 1 paragraph. That word is a marketing word that just is sooooooo played out. ENOUGH!!!
Nov 6th 2010 1:55PM I've had a website now for 7 years. I server a very useful service in the real estate community. My areas are Manhattan and Queens and I have had hundreds of thousands of visitors since I started and have gotten hundreds of people apartments to rent and to buy.I have not ever had my company on the dmoz index. Please put my company on it. It should be about time. Thank you.
Feb 20th 2010 10:50AM I made the exact pie myself. It cost me about $3.00 and it takes like a stupid, boring sugar cookie with some oatmeal thrown in. What morons will fall for this insane stunt? I guess the same people that bought 1 bedroom condos for over a million in 2007.
Mar 25th 2009 10:04AM All this talk about the economy getting back on track is good but it puts a real damper on something that people need. Its real estate. While housing prices in some areas of the U.S. need to come back, it also brings back the 2007/2008 prices. Now that everyone thinks that the economy is on the mend, rents and housing prices will start climbing again, making it virtually impossible for an average working family to buy. As I see it, the more the economy fails, the cheaper housing gets and will eventually bring people out to buy at an affordable price. Rents in Manhattan are finally low enough for people to eat also.
Jan 8th 2009 1:33PM Sure, pumping billions into the economy is great if it gets into the hands of the americans, and it won't. Did you or anyone ever stop to think that the bubble, the economy, the housing had to happen. Nobody with a normal salary was able to afford the current prices of housing in the big cities (especially Manhattan where a 1 bedroom is $750,000). Also, gas was over $4.00 a gallon. I think this crisis is what we need. We need everything to set back 5-7 years to a time where people can afford to eat out, to buy a car, to fill their tanks, and to buy property. We need lower prices everywhere and it took whats happening now to bring everything down a notch. We're not done yet. Food, real estate, and gas still needs to come down 20% or more so the average "joe the plumber" can feed his family and buy a home without taking a jumbo loan and maxing out his credit cards.
The other day I was in a deli where a young couple had to use a credit card to buy 2 coffees and a piece of cake for $10. They probably were renting a way over inflated apartment in Manhattan for $3000 a month for a 1 bedroom and eating for cash was not an option. this is what people live like. I saw someone in a supermarket using a credit card for a head of lettuce and a yogurt. Again, things are waaaaay out of proportion to salary versus housing/food. We need this economic upheaval to reset our pricing back a few years. Otherwise my 17 year kid will never be able to buy an apartment unless she's making $250,000 a year out of college. She should be able to buy a 1 bedroom in a good area for $300,000 and not pay $800,000. And she should be able to save enough for a downpayment. these days a downpayment needs to be over $150,000 minimum. so what young couples have that around. Not very many. I hope this makes sence. Lets stop trying to make the economy better. That will only bring higher gas prices, higher food prices, and make the housing market go back up again to obscene prices.
