Uh, oh. 

 

So I reckon they’ll base the new socialistic system  on  the Walter Reed Army Hospital business model.  Wasn’t that where our wounded soldiers were being forced to live in almost squalor conditions? 

 

(Well, at least I won’t be paying for my doctor’s Chippendale furniture and oriental rugs  in his examination rooms any more).

Here’s reason #17 why we invest in real estate.

 

Wild [tag-self]stock[/tag-self] market fluctuations.

 

I guess we’ve  all heard by now about the [tag-ice]Dow[/tag-ice]  plunging 200 points  during opening moments yesterday.   The S & P 500 also went down as well as the FTSE Eurofirst 300.

They say it all started with a 9 per cent fall in the  Chinese stock market on Tuesday.

 

My question is why does it always happen on a Tuesday?  (1929 Collapse)

 

Talk about a learning curve.  Another reason why real estate is so inviting to many of us is that it’s just easier. 

 

And my most important reason for investing in real estate- I can control that property.  Or, at least I’m under the impression I can.

Housing Panic  has an interesting editorial about the Greatest Generation

 

Yes, I agree with him on this point.  The Greatest Generation who lived through the Great Depression, World War II, and all that 60’s nonsense, is getting older.

 

We’ll going to miss them terribly in the future.  Primarily because they had their heads on straight. 

 

And they were unselfish. 

 

We need to get into their mentoring programs fast, while there’s still time. So find one, take him out to lunch.     Learn from him.  Especially how he handled money.  Kept debt low, invested wisely, worked hard.  Made successful investments happen.

 

Just being in the same room with a Gen Great recharges my batteries.
