Is a designed cartel of Hypocrisy the real reason why home prices are rising while at the same time there are over 17 million abandoned homes in the USA, or is the truth linked to something else……?

A Chicago Tribune Op-Ed titled:  Hypocrisy on housing is a bipartisan scourge, ended with the following statement:

“Bipartisanship can be a way for people of differing views to find practical compromises that advance common goals. In the case of housing, though, it amounts to a cartel of the haves against the have-nots. And it’s working exactly as designed.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient King Solomon proverbs to give clues to the conundrum for interested readers to decide if “the truth linked to something else?”

King Solomon

Rich and poor have this in common, the Lord is their Maker of them all. (Proverb 22:2)

Woe to you, O land whose king is a youth, and whose princes feast in the morning. Blessed are you, O land whose king is a son of nobles, and whose princes feast at the proper time—for strength and not for drunkenness (Ecclesiastes 10:16-17)

What’s My Point?

The article gives two others more truth and realities clues to the conundrum about property values in this follwing statement:

“During the 2020 campaign, President Donald Trump alleged that Joe Biden would “eliminate single-family zoning, bringing who knows into your suburbs, so your communities will be unsafe and your housing values will go down.” Biden’s infrastructure package includes $5 billion in grants to local “

“It’s often said that the three most important factors in buying a home are location, location and location. When it comes to housing affordability and access, the three most important factors are supply, supply and supply.” 

My point is, in my opinion, the main reason housing values are going up in some communities and abandoneed in other communtities is because of the “Woes” brought to fruition by lack of wisdom of both voters and politicians, not hypocrisy, supply, or zoning in the opinion of the writer.

Woe Definition Merriam Webster

: a condition of deep suffering from misfortune, affliction, or grief

2: ruinous trouble: CALAMITY, AFFLICTION economic woes

Hypocrisy Definition Merriam Webster

: a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not: behavior that contradicts what one claims to believe or feel

In My Opinion

When Trump predicted the Democrats would reduce prices, he never in his wildest imagination could have forecast the present disastrous effects taking place now in the USA under Joe Bidens leadership.

What are the truths causing the rise in prices is related to three truths that the writer has mistaking assigned hypocrisy instead of realities?

The first truth and reality are there are 17 million abandoned homes mainly because of Democrat liberal policies to allow criminal gangs to chase people out of the communities for fear of being shot or victims of crime.

The second truth and reality are Democrat politicians are allowing millions of immigrants into the USA by illegally crossing borders which is adding to the housing supply problems.

The third truth and reality are foolish politicians have allowed millions of USA manufacturing jobs to be outsourced to other countries which has reduced wages while at the same time raise taxes and cost of living remaining residents in communities that are being abandoned in once urban areas where millions of Americans left their homes to obtain manufacturing jobs in Chicago and is still the reality why they are leaving Chicago to relocate to manufacturing States like Texas and Florida.

If the writer’s opinion that hypocrisy reason   in my opinion, it is not that the writer is feigning hypocrisy, it is more related to his liberal political opinions rather than realizing the truth and reality of what is occurring now to raise home prices and inflation in the USA.

You Decide

Which opinion is related more to the truth and reality of what is now occurring with crime and inflation of not only homes in the past six months under the leadership of Democrats?

Are the problems more related to wisdom or folly causing the woes of leadership now in power in the USA Congress as a result of the voter’s choice in the 2020 election?

Are the present politicians (Princes) feasting on tax revenues or borrowing and printing dollars to cause inflation in the USA?

Will Bidens five billion dollars intrastate plan in grants be sufficient to provide relief from the woes of abandonment of homes in high crime and joblessness created by past and present leadership follies and feasting of politicians in the USA?

Will voters wise up in 2022 after they realize the folly of their political choice of “feasting, drunken with power, Princes Politicians” that resulted after the 2020 election that they too never imagined would be so foolish?
