The cost of rentals is going up in correlation with the increase of illegal immigration. People have to live somewhere...

and when the gov gets involved in helping subsidize rent..well, basic economics, the cost will rise...supply/demand + unlimited funds not subject to market forces  = screw you regular consumer.


But yea, correlation does not necessarily imply causation...

We are a nation of candy-asses.  Gas prices are NOT historically high.  Take a look at the prices 15 years ago.  Way higher and that is not even adjusted for inflation.  Go back to the 70s and 80s if you want high gas prices.

We also all have the option of purchasing fuel efficient vehicles now.  We don't have to buy pickup trucks or full size SUVs.  We buy them because we think gas will stay cheap forever.  You're an idiot if you pay $50K for a Suburban and then biatch about the cost of gas.

I am in a bad mood today.  I hate EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY!!

Yup... A Honda CR-V is larger and more luxurious than the Jeep Cherokee of 20 years ago and gets double the fuel economy (BuT WhAt AbOuT OfF rOaD aBiLitY?!?) - nobody gives a shiat except Cletus McTruckNutz, and I personally look forward to local news clips of him crying about trying to split his funds between Oxycontin and filling up his F-Teen-Thousand.
