When Britain voted for Brexit I thought wow, how stupid can the Brits be? Then the U.S. voted for trump. When it comes to the STUPID they got nothing on the good ol’ US of A.

Much as I would like house prices to drop to non-science-fictional levels, I won’t hold my breath, at least while Baby Boomers live. The home ownership cult is so deeply entrenched that this country would (will) see half the population in homeless shelters before it let people’s houses fall in value.

Not a word on why this is attributable to Brexit. Sure it’s not because of toothpaste prices, or assault weapon bans, or immigration problems, or Donald Trump, or ‘the Jewish problem’, or Nicolas Cage tweets?

Housing prices in city centers can always be expected to rise linearly? Brexit applies to London, but not to Manchester? Seriously, wtf?
