Unlicensed short term rentals are illegal, this guest knew it was illegal when they rented it, thus they’re complicit in a crime. She felt like a criminal because she WAS a criminal.

This is cognitive dissonance at it’s best. Compare and contrast today with 18 months ago. The shifting of goalposts is like never before. Most people don’t have enough self reflection to see they’ve been had. And they continue to buy the BS from the mainstream media. That said, a lot of people will wake up in the next few weeks.

StupidityCheck
Guest
StupidityCheck

Which goalposts have shifted? No one has even seen Mueller’s report! Barr didn’t even consult with him wrt his letter! There are still a lot of unanswered questions.

From the looks of today’s letter, it looks like Mueller only looked at whether anyone on team Trump worked with the hackers or the IRA. NO ONE has ever accused them of that! The (as of yet, not disproven) allegation is that Trump was offering sanctions relief to Russia in exchange for help winning the election. I suspect Congress is going to have to figure that out, since (apparently) Mueller wasn’t investigating it.

There might be more indictments. It will just be Bill Barr bringing them investigating the Obama regime.

“How to end our National nightmare – probe Hillary Clinton again”

Trump’s vindication is a devastating rebuke to Democrats and their media handmaidens, all of whom insisted his guilt was guaranteed. Their legacy is that they ruined their own credibility, and their continuing efforts to destroy him by innuendo and investigation can only add to their disgrace. For them, too, Friday night was like a repeat of Trump’s election victory.

Australia: Home builders start laying off workers as they face sharp downturn

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-22/home-builders-face-big-housing-downturn/10925890

Since building its first house in 1957, Zuccala Homes has seen its fair share of highs and lows in Melbourne’s residential construction market.

“Builders are just battening down the hatches and looking after their costs,” Mr Zuccala told ABC’s The Business.

Melbourne house prices have fallen 9.6 per cent since their 2017 peak, and that is having big implications for home builders.

This seems ridiculous. In Tokyo or New York it makes sense because population density is so high. But a capsule hotel in Richmond? Give me a break. The only reason why this happened is due to the temporarily ludicrously high suburban land values in the GVR. I expect in the future this capsule hotel will be seen as yet another oddity of our housing mania.

bullwhip29

this isn’t about population density but rather repurposing existing commercial and likely residential space. one would think that the city should tread very carefully in this regard, but somehow this so called pod hotel got the green light is up and running (right across the street from city hall…lol). hey, what do i know anyway? in a city that seems to allow illegal spas, hotels, gambling establishments, money exchanges, safehouses, autobody shops, amusement parks built on farms and so on and so forth, why not add this to the list of available services? how long before some clever entrepreneur out there gets proactive and crams a few of these pods into his garage, condo or in the rear of his grocery store?

A bit off topic….

Renewed ICBC insurance…had a few questions for the agent.

—-Expensive cars……( ie that foreign locusts children drive and crash )
They don’t have much impact on overall premiums…BUT each of these high end cars is independently assessed and then the premium is calculated.

—-Currently..the owner of the car is responsible for what happens to it…but coming this year is if say you let another party use it and they have an accident..the driver at the time gets nailed with blame…not owner…and affects their insurance,not owners.

—If you have a vehicle that you use LESS than 5,000 km /year…you get a $300 discount on premium.

—-Used vehicles…maybe check into this….you have the ability to insure it in a manner that avoids depreciation….if 10 years old or less.

Vancouver’s rental development program under review due to sky-high rents

https://www.citynews1130.com/2019/03/24/vancouvers-rental-development-program-under-review-due-to-sky-high-rents/

I think most are look a loos like me gauging the market. People like me that fear FOMO 2.0.

But the longer the low sales continue, and the population keeps rising, there will come a time when the buyer floodgates open.

The lower rates are but one stimulus. The CMHCI is another. The backtracking of the SpecTax was another. The failure to do anything about money laundering is another. See the trend?

My worst fears are coming true. I wish people would have pressured the damn NDP to do more and sooner. The minion she have to realize that it is China capital controls that have primarily slowed the market and NOT the NDP. The NDP just did minor tweaks.

Oracle: “My worst fears are coming true”.

Your worst fears are coming true alright: Sales have tanked to 30 year lows, and prices are coming down. Steve Saretsky has hinted that March is on track to be another 30 year low.

Sales are now lower than when the population of Vancouver was half what it is today, so your 500,000 TFW’s/students and their 4 parents each don’t appear to buying anything.

If your dream growing up was to be a bag holder than you’re about to realize that dream.

Heavy fines levied for Bacelona empty buildings:

For some years now, Barcelona has been making a threat to landlords: If you don’t find tenants for your empty buildings, we will fine you.

The tone emerged as the city’s affordable housing crisis deepened, exacerbated in part by the fact that some buildings lie vacant even as housing has become more scarce. This month, however, the city has gone further than ever before to act on its threat, levying fines of €2.8 million ($3.17 million) against two investment funds that each own an unoccupied building in Barcelona’s center.

“reinforcing concerns that consumers may no longer be able to drive the economy with household debt at record levels and borrowers facing higher costs following five rate hikes by the Bank of Canada”

So basically because interest rates were held so low for too long, the population adjusted to those lower rates and borrowed accordingly. Now when the CBs raise those too low rates it puts us into a recession. Can you see the incompetence of these guys?
