Between the gas shortage, real estate skyrocketing, stock market bubble, etc. My anxiety is *really* bad. I don't know what to do and it's scary. I wish there was somewhere safe to go, but I feel like it's too late and the rest of the world isn't great either. Not sure if I should be stockpiling emergency food things or what.

In response to a confession. Real Estate con't: Even though prices here are soaring, it's still cheaper than California or New York, where A LOT of the folks are moving here from. The bigger problem is that appraisals are not keeping up with sold prices. So houses aren't appraising at the value of the offer. That means if you're financing through a bank, you have to make up the difference. So people are having to bring $250K or more to closing on an $800K house (average cost in my zip). And a lot of people don't have $250K cash lying around. Someone actually offered us $929K for our house. We have absolutely no intention of selling. At all. But they lost out on our neighbor's house and loved ours and the location. We paid $280K for it 15 years ago. I love my house. We have made it in to our perfect home, and even I don't think it's work $929K. But if that's what someone is willing to pay, that's what it's worth.

In response to a confession. The zip code where I live was recently cited as having the 6th highest increase in value in the country. No, it's not foreign investors. My neighbor recently went through a divorce and put her house on the market. She received 26 offers in 24 hours. Not a single one was from a foreign investor. Sold info isn't public record in my state, but m job allows me to see that info. So I can see who's winning these buying wars, and it's not investors. The crazy thing is that there are actually bidding wars for rentals here now. People are unable to win bids to by a house, and are just desperate to find a place to live that's zoned to schools. So they're giving up buying for now and trying to rent, causing people to even bid up rent prices. Most of our increase is people relocating from other states or even other parts of the city. Now that so many people will be working from home for good, they don't need to be close to the office any more. Con't

I'm watching the housing market in my area closely. The majority of houses that are being sold for way over value, are now being put up for rent for crazy amounts. A house that should be no more that should be no more than $1400 for rent is up for rent for $2600. A slightly bigger house is $3500. I don't think it's people buying the houses up, I think it's businesses, possibly different countries, buying up these homes.

In response to a confession. What horrible people they are to mock someone for trying to protect others. The Magats seriously make fun of people for being kind. WTF?

I love that Biden is being mocked for wearing a mask during a virtual meeting. The last guy is a sexual predator who told us all to squirt bleach in our mouths and shove LED lighting up our asses, but yeah, wearing a mask is definitely stupider.

Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. I hope that violent, racist asshole never sees daylight again. Now let's convict the rest.

The Chauvin trial has me worried. I think a lot of people are being awfully cavalier in assuming there will be a conviction. Those of us who are old enough remember the Rodney King case. It was an absolutely blatant case of horrific police brutality, all on tape, and they were aquitted. Never underestimate the depth of the racism in this country.

Matt Gaetz is everything I hate about the right wing distilled into one inbred looking human being.
