Are homeowners unrealistic about their selling price?

Response
All very interesting.  Thank you for your contributions. In our view, what is the most important thing to keep in mind is, for whatever reason(s):  "if they don't wanna, they aint' gonna".  To earn a living, and maintain your sanity, rather then becoming a potential lighting rod, and wasting your valuable time, and resources, we have found it is best to approach sellers this way.  Show them all the market data &  facts in written form, have a full, honest discussion about their property (plusses & minuses), and tell them that you don't think you can help them if they don't agree with your analysis.   Your goals: to educate them, despite your less than welcomed news establish a rapport, and, introduce the idea that they will call you if someone else takes on the task, and fails because of their miscalculations and misunderstanding of the market.

How to Remove The Voter Fraud Corruption from the System

Response
Mikal1 I tried to engage you in a civilized conversation, but you couldn't do it.   What's up?  Why the anger.  Maybe you should stop exchanging mesages for a while, and have a sincere talk about yourself with a good friend.  There may be a whole new you waiting to be discovered.

Socialism and Redistributing the Wealth

Response
Yeagermike zeroes in on the crux of the issue.  The decisions we all make are all based on an economic principle called a "comparative market advantage".  Whether it is known or not, everyone is making a choice everytime they buy goods and services. The principle:  for consumers worldwide to get the benefit of the best (lowest) prices for goods and services, all goods and services should be produced in areas of the world where they can be produced at the lowest cost, i.e., where there is a "comparative market advantage".  We can't have it both ways.  If we want to keep jobs in the U.S., by taxing producers that outsource jobs, or by placing tariffs on imported goods, then, according to the principle, we will have to subsidize them by paying higher prices for their goods and services. We can cast aspersions on corporations and businesses, many are warranted, but unfortunately, lofty thoughts and patriotism tends to fade when individuals' pocketbooks are affected.

How to Remove The Voter Fraud Corruption from the System

Response
Pasadenan We are on the same page.  I Think the idea of signature or thumbprint verification would be just fine, and could be viable sometime.  I don't plan on breaking any laws, so I don't mind my thumbprint being in anybody's file. I'm still not sure I get the "tin hat" reference that Mikal1 threw my way, and wanted me to try.  His message was poorly communicated, though I'm sure it was perjorative. If so, I wonder what he/she is all about getting so carried away, and allowing that kind of zeal to find its way into a supposedly civilized discussion.  Maybe he/she had some rocks in their Cheerios, their dog bit them, or their spouse said "no". He still owes me some thoughtful answers to my questions posed.

How to Remove The Voter Fraud Corruption from the System

Response
Mikal1You didn't answer my questions.  You fluffed them off on Pasadenan.Hey, we're not talking of ending Republican or Democratic voter fraud; it's about all ending voter fraud.  It is about principles, honesty, and setting examples for all; particularly the country's young people.  Fraud is an ugly concept.  You seem to take it lightly.To repeat:   I feel everything possible should be done to eliminate voter fraud, and I'll ask you again:  in making an effort to limit potential voter fraud, do you really believe that given time a number of different forms of id's (photo) couldn't be made available to all voters who truly care about voting, and are willing to do what is necessary to exercise that right. If you don't believe that, then you should be wearing the "device".

How to Remove The Voter Fraud Corruption from the System

Response
mikal1:Honestly, you don't seem at all undecided. How can you "honestly" make that judgement?  But is any of it even truly relevant? Do you know how many charges of election fraud have been filed in the last 25 or 30 years? If you're really concerned then just build and use the device below.  I don't have a clue what that drawing ("device") was all about. It appeared to be some form of aggression being expessed on your part.  Were you getting angry and acting out?  Please tell me you weren't. Regarding IDs, it's not at all simple Many things worthwhile aren't simple.  I still see nothing wrong with a system that requires its voters to have some form of positive identification for voting purposes.  Do you really believe if a person truly values his/her right to vote, and understands well in advance that there is an ID requirement they will have to adhere to, they won't go throught the proper channels to meet the requirement?  I don't think that is asking too much.  It may take effort, but some form of ID(s) system can be established so that all voters can get an legitimate, acceptable voter ID.

How to Remove The Voter Fraud Corruption from the System

Response
Last thought. Why do some people object to a requirement of showing some legitimate form of positive ID when checking in at the voting stations? The right to vote is just that.  It is the most important right we have as U.S. citizens.  What's wrong with that right mandating the very small responsibility of needing to secure whatever form of ID is acceptable in one's area (there can be many different types of ID's, so any legitimate voter can get something), and having to present it when voting.
