HP presents "Real Economist (NOT Lawrence Yun) Housing Market Quotes of Brilliance"



"No one is buying into their Kool-Aid; that's why prices are falling"

- Paul Kasriel, chief economist with Northern Trust in Chicago, questioned the Realtors' assessment that this is a good time to enter the market, saying weak sales and prices suggest that potential buyers are smart to be sitting on the sidelines right now.

Yep, time to put all the money in the Dow, lease a brand new Mercedes, and buy a couple of McMansions with interest only loans. The market already forgot all the long term bad stuff over the weekend, like it never happened. Man, this country has been controlled by con man and legalized mafia. Now they are selling arms to the Gulf to make more money to their groups. Con games and scams everywhere...and the sheeple oblivious to all.

Hey Keith, who's that troll who calls everyone DOPES here? Is he a starving realtwhore or a con broker from Arizona? If you give me his IP, I can even get his blood pressure, because of my line of work. I want to check if this guy is such a bigshot the way he acts. It's up to you, all I need is his IP number to dig the dirt.

Keith,

I think its time to revisit the educational point about the Hindenburg Omen.

I'm glad more and more people are wising up, sitting it out, and waiting as housing prices continue to fall.

Price/earnings ratio for housing is *WAY* out of line with reality for the country, and as such, prices will continue to fall.

Very good point.

It appears so many people hear who are trumping up the stock market look at a day as if it's an indication of the overall health of our economy - pure bullox.

The stock market does not exist in a vacuum, and it's the *overall* rise and fall, over a period of time that tells us more than whether or not someone made a "killing" or not on a particular day.

As long as we forget to look at the bigger picture, instead of short-term personal gains, we'll never resolve the bigger issues our economy faces down the line.

Dress Up Ramen for Dinner in Minutes

This delicious noodle dish is one of my favorite "shortcut" recipes -- you can put it together quickly and it leaves you feeling satisfyingly full, but not stuffed. When you're pressed for time, it's surprisingly good even if you make just the main recipe and omit the peanut sambal. You can also dress it up by substituting soba noodles for the ramen and tossing in some grilled shrimp.


Ramen Noodles with Peanut Sambal
4-6 servings

2 packages instant ramen noodles
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
kernels from 2 cobs of sweet corn
1 jalapeno, chopped with seeds and ribs removed
2 bok choy or 1 cup cabbage, cut into thin slices lengthwise
4 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
