Just about everyone in the nation either has received, knows of someone who has received, or has at least heard of the $1,000 bonus checks issued out by a boat-load by employers because of the President Trump tax cuts.
Since then, a very well known politician from the Bay Area opined of the bonus amounts as “mere crumbs.”
In Nancy’s world, a mere $1K probably is mere crumbs. No thanks to the same brand of socialism that Pelosi and Crew try to force on the rest of us.
Perhaps as proof of just how bad things are in the People’s Republic of California is a recent story out of Silicon Valley that a burned-out husk of a home is on the market for a modest $800,000.
But in all fairness, the burned-out shack isn’t in Pelosi’s congressional district.
In all honesty, things are worse in the City by the Bay. Much worse.
As reported by the CBS affiliate KPIX (of San Francisco), the cheapest home on the market today is a cracker box of a two-bedroom home that totals less that 600 hundred square feet (actually, the home is 596 sq ft).
But get ready for this… the teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy abode lists a whopping $649,000. Keep in mind, that’s just the listing price.
When it’s all said and done, the glorified studio apartment may sell for $1 million.
Coldwell Banker realtor Karen Mai said, “It’s going to go higher…It is very crazy that the price is so high that a lot of people cannot afford it.”
San Francisco firefighter Kevin Day said, “I have not made an offer yet…but I’ve been told I wouldn’t even be able to compete. They’ll probably get $800,000 to $1 million for it.”
Oh, and no one is quite sure how old the home really is. The only thing for sure is that the tiny house was built sometime before the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. All the records were burned in the post-earthquake fire.
One other thing, if and when this home actually does sell for a million, that figures out to $1,677.85 per square foot.
A $1,000 bonus check won’t even buy you 12″x12″x12″ in Pelosi’s world.
To give the reader an idea of what a generic 600 square feet of home looks like from the inside, here you go. Remember, this will more than likely sell for a million dollars.
So maybe a thousand clams really is nothing more than just pocket change to the likes of Pelosi and the rest of her Limousine Liberal pals.
But for a better idea of what exactly Joe and Jane Lunchbox have to deal with living in the Soviet Socialist Golden State, a recent report from KABC-TV (Los Angeles) paints a much gloomier picture than the vast majority of Americans could never imagine their hometown.
With San Jose located at the tail-end of California’s famed (and über-expensive) Silicon Valley, the city named in honor of Saint Joseph is literately just down the road from Pelosi’s 12th Congressional District.
As KABC cited;
An uninhabitable burned-out home in San Jose went up for sale at the price of $800,000.
While it may sound crazy, there are people willing to pay. A realtor said in less than 24 hours, 10 potential buyers contacted her. She anticipates selling it in a few days.
So what’s the reason for the high interest? Buying the charred home and rebuilding on the property is a lot cheaper than buying a brand new home in Silicon Valley.
As one of the studio anchors noted at the end of the video report;
“That is a testament to what’s going on in the state of California…”
Possibly giving the hint that Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner aren’t what one would exactly describe as drinking buddies after duty hours, the San Francisco Democrat launched into a tirade slamming the Ohio Republican for not only being out of touch with his inner child, but also for being mad with power. As reported by the conservative-leaning PJ Media news portal on Jan. 22, 2015, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went after the Speaker of the House for inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of the U.S. Congress without first consulting either her or Barack Obama.
As reported by MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin on May 9, 2014, just about every biography of Rep. Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy III (R-SC) begins with the fact that the Congressman’s professional career began as the U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina, soon to be followed by his election as a South Carolina District Attorney. The politics beat reporter for the left-leaning network made note that Gowdy himself “loves to speak in the language of the courtroom.”
True to form, when the Carolina Gamecock appeared last Wednesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Gowdy used a courtroom metaphor when asked if his committee’s investigation could run into 2016, “when Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the Benghazi attack, could be running for president.”
Failing to name names, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is accusing Congressional Republicans of playing racial favorites , as reported by the left-of-center news portal The Daily Beast on April 14, 2014, the Los Angeles Times on March 14, 2014, and lastly by the right-of-center Breitbart.com on March 9, 2014.
