The Second U.S. Housing Bubble?

It's true that interest rates are (artificially) low now, but the chart clearly shows that median household income is much lower than than before the 1st bubble popped. I'm a real estate agent too, but if you can't see trouble in that chart, you're fooling yourself.
Conceited much? Much as Ryan's had a few good ideas in a town with way too few, he's 100% committed to be wrong here. The immigration reform that we need is to 1st enforce the laws we have and deport all those in violation. 2nd, eliminate the migration of unskilled labor. Then we could allow more skilled people to immigrate, but cap immigration by country of origin such that we don't get concentrated migrations from any one country, but skilled people from around the world have opportunity to migrate if they really want.
I think we all respect his service while in the service. He even did some good early in his Senate career many, many years ago. Unfortunately, he ran (poorly) for president and doesn't have the decency to go away. He's embarrassed by the reasonable people of this country who want some restraint in our foreign policy and you're upset that we're offended??? There's no herd mentality it's just a natural visceral reaction to basic disrespect.
Thank you Dr. Adams for standing up and making your arguments in the face of intense institutional pressure. You give us all hope that just maybe this country isn't too far gone.
The difference between the US and Mexico used to be the corruption and bribery endemic in Mexicos government.
"Honor, glory and respect are earned individually, not collectively." - Amen!
That's ridiculous. When we elect politicians we really don't know what they'll do and what they do tends to evolve over time while they're in office. They need to be held accountable and if they get too cozy, they need to be sent packing. Not only does it refresh the party with new blood and ideas, it gives other representatives a healthy respect for the voters.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.
I'm with you, but after reading this article, I almost want to switch. Seriously, if you're going to make this argument, you have to think about it. You have to believe this because the bible says so? That's fine for me, but if you're not sure about the bible, then you're just making eyes roll. Even if the Bible does say so, there's got to be some more consistent principle melding these ideas together or tearing them apart.
na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, Good riddance.
