This parabolic trend failure is a Thanksgiving Day miracle!

Some of us may actually be able to stay in our homes over the long-term after all!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I should probably temper my enthusiasm, lest state and local government employees storm my house looking for property tax leftovers. In fact, let's just keep this little secret to ourselves. Okay?

I've probably said this before, but were you aware that parabolic growth is not sustainable?

I'm doing my part. My property tax mil rate is about 1/5th of one percent. Something something not sharing mumble something.

Huh, "they" keep voting for more property taxes in my bucolic limousine-liberal college town; filled to the brim with the wealth of student loan debt.

I think the line is "Prosperity baby, that's what I'm talkin' about here". Or somethin like that.

Nothing says property tax prosperity like filling to the brim with a wealth of student loan debt!

You must feel very fortunate, very fortunate indeed!

Sarcastic prosperity baby, that's what I'm talking about. ;)
