I thought we were blaming inflation on too much money being in everyone's pockets. Now you're saying we are living in poverty. Can you at least make your narrative consistent and not laughable.

And when you sell it to buy a nicer one? What then? Check out Zillow listings in Montana?

that you don't have to buy a new one, that's cash in the bank.

Just think of these people who own 4-5 homes, live in one and rent the other 4. They're sitting on a goldmine right now. If I had a crystal ball, I would have leveraged my finances to the hilt and bought 4 single-family houses in say 2015. Rented them for a few years, then I would sell them right about now.

remodeled the house, put the kids in private school, bought a new range rover, bought a gym membership and signed up as a "Founder's Circle" donor for the United Way banquet. Right after the husband just refied the house at 100% of appraisal to pay off all the previous loans that came due.

"Isn't all this nice, sweetheart?" What is the answer to that question?

But I don't attribute our household's situation to sitting presidents and neither should any other American.

We're better off because we took steps to make ourselves better off.

Is the country better off is the better question. And no, it isn't, but if you're trying to craft a silly defense of Trump, then this is just a base false dichotomy. Trump set us on a path of disaster for America. Biden's incompetent administration has escalated it.

They are both terrible presidents. Yes, they are.

EDIT: LOL, reading the responses, this didn't go as you planned.

You should try more reading of what other people write and less spouting. You would be in a better position to discuss the political views of others. It's a much better approach than making assumptions.

You should read it. The sentence ends in a question mark. Sentences that end in question marks are meant to find out thoughts of other people. I wanted to gauge what the board thought about their situation. I figured I would get various responses.

Why do you typically ask questions?

Did my answer not indicate that I read your question?

Was your post not an attempt to draw a correlation between Trump/Biden administrations and how everyone is doing as a result?

If not, I apologize for the assumption.

. She has her first job, so my cash flow is definitely greater.

Also, it's so refreshing not to have an embarrassing 3rd world dictator-type child as president. It's nice to not have the whole world laughing at us.

Hopefully, I can return my vote to the GOP in 2024. We'll see.

Congrats on your daughter. If the option in the next Presidential election is Trump vs. Biden or Harris, I just won't vote. Hate to say it, but the world is still laughing at us. Sending Harris to Europe was a complete embarrassment.

I too, am better off in most ways than I was 3 years ago. Is the country and the world? I don't think so.

They are laughing at us. Pootin, Xi, Kim Jong-un, Iran all see us as weak and are/will take advantage of that. If you don't believe this, you're kidding yourself.

Putin isn't laughing. He's currently getting embarrassed by a country that would take the USA less than a week to over run. But keep dreaming, lol.

High five on the cash flow improvements though. I'm a little psyched that after schollys lil'Obed's college tuition next year will be less than high school, so I'm counting that as a win.
