Push boulders up a never ending hill by that I mean:

Work at countrywide in Loss Mitigation/Foreclosure department trying to get FB's to pay up and/or help to 'modify' the loan to trick chumps into paying 5k a month on upside down asset that is depreciating when it rents for 2k a month. (hint: mission impossible!)

The ones who watched their money will be out there ready to screw everyone once again. They'll buy up distressed property from their former customers, just to be good guys and gals. You think you can turn a snake into a dove?

(And my apologies to the REAL snakes. At least the real snakes eat rats and stuff like that. They at least do something useful.)

With a little increased illegals enforcement, there should be lots of lettuce and spinach pickin' jobs.

On the other hand, they spew so much bull$hit that they might cause another e-coli outbreak.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- New orders for long-lasting U.S.-made manufactured goods surged a much greater-than-expected 5.9 percent in July, the biggest gain since September, and a business investment gauge posted the first gain in three months, a Commerce Department report showed Friday.

Multilevel Marketing!!!!

I know 6 former mortgage brokers that have already chosen this path.

It fits. They suckered people into bad loans now they are suckering people into bad businesses.

Their business model is one of finding the next fool and taking advantage of him. Sound familiar.

A few months ago my brother asked me what I thought of a business opportunity his former youth pastor was trying to recruit him into. My research on the net showed it was a gigantic MLM scam. One thing that really struck me was the large number of small-time realtor web sites pushing the program. I found lots of forum postings where realtors were encouraging each other to leverage all those contacts they've built up over the years to sell all these MLM products (after signing up for the program underneath them, of course).

So there's your answer -- Realtors have many options open to them:

* Quixtar
* Pre Paid Legal
* Expensive fruit juice seller
* Work-at-home travel agent
* Insert your favorite MLM work-at-home opportunity here

You swallow these govt statistical reports whole and dare call other people "dopes"? You probably created the "Hedonic Index" which has been used by the government since the early 1980's to help cover up for the collapsing US economy.
When you see bridges just fall down flat that's probably a good clue that this economy has reached the fag end of a long decline.

california was doing fine in the 1960's without millions of illegals. i would say they were better off then. if these illegals are so great for the economy, then why are mexico and el salvador such shitholes?

Answer: NOT TRUE! Cost of living would not triple but would actually go down! Illegals take out MUCH MORE than they give back. California's social welfare entitlement programs pays out tens of billions of dollars for illegal aliens and their anchor bablies: this is true with free medical care illegals receive in emergency rooms, the free k-12 schooling they receive, not to mention the costs of prosecuting and incarcerating illegals who commit crimes when they come here.

And what about the other intangibles that you didn't mention, like quality of life, overcrowded freeways and intolerance for cultures and nationalities of people who other than Mexican (e.g. chickens running loose on side walks, cars parked on grass lawns).

This is what I was talking about when people refer to California as it being once a great state. It may mean nothing to you, but at one time California was the envy of the world, NOW everyone and anyone who isnt illegal wants out of here! ITS TOO EXPENSIVE for honest people, but if your illegal- not to worry, the US government hand out is ready, willing and able!

I opened a used car lot, started doing more property management, and raised the rent on my personal rentals(close to 100 units) so I can live better off of the cash flows. Some of us aren't the tool boxes you all make us out to be.BTW I was also one of the honest realtors who didn't throw people under the bus, and will make handfuls of loot when the dust settles, both buying for myself, and helping savvy investors buy nice cheap rental potfolio's. That's what I am doing

The race pimp pro-illegal immigrant crowd have learned well from Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Anytime somebody criticizes law-breaking illegal immigrants, the race pimps claim it is racism against Hispanics. The hispanics who are here legally can stay, as with all other races of people who are here legally. Anyone who is here illegally should be deported. That means all whites, blacks, hispanics, asians of any gender should be deported. The ball is already rolling and ICE agents are rounding up the hordes of illegal immigrants. Hopefully they will arrest the slavemasters and toss them in jail soon.
