This is awful, just awful.

Is there a ribbon magnet  for this? Maybe a prayer chain I can join? I just want to help.

Maybe we could start a Kickstarter campaign to help them out.

If they can't buy a mansion, can't they just grab those bootstraps and build one?

I don't get the hate. Mansions plug a lot of money back into local economies. Groundskeeping, maintenance, repairs,  furnishings, and buying/selling through realtors all end up with a net benefit to local economies. If someone with more money than sense wants a crazy large house and to fill it with furniture they never will use... that's better than that same money sitting in a trust fund somewhere for your locality.

You should like their Facebook page. That always shows unwavering support.

Wealth redistribution is slowing; that's bad news for Obama.

Is this when the 1% have their butlers don "EAT THE FILTHY RICH" t-shirts and skull-brooched bow ties then order them to white collar bum rush the .1%'s carbon fiber gates (pure bred mountain hounds be damned), only to meagerly saunter into the aftermath in a daze, their tanning schedules for the afternoon ruined, scavenging what they can of helicopter fuel, priceless wallpaper, and Fiji-brand artisanal pool water?

Maybe it's different now, but I don't remember Carmel having many mansions.  All I remember is tiny houses with huge price tags.

Good news indeed.

What's America come to that the wealthy have to settle for the mansions they already own. They might have to stay in  *gasp* a hotel.

Exactly.  All these 6-figure middle-class jobs being suppressed.  Won't someone have pity on the Job CreatorsTM?

Want more mansions? It's easy, just lower your standards.

For some, it never actually happened.
