FIRE!

I think it's particularly funny how people, and it's usually sellers or a seller's realtor, seem to think that the "slowing" or "softening" RE market is somehow due to housing bubble news articles and blogs. As if they could actually sell their overpriced house if it wasn't for the chicken-littles and our self-fufilling prophecies. Maybe if we're all quiet we can go back to believing the Realtors Association's lies and buying houses we can't afford with suicide loans ... and the market will come roaring back making everyone millionaires. The end.

They view us (the bubblewatchers) at worst as "letting the cat out of the bag" and spoiling the Pozi scheme buy tipping off the potential suckers. At best, they see us as yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater - i.e. creating panic when there is no need. We, however, see ourselves as yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater because, and this is the important part - There is a fire! Look over there man! See the smoke!? See the Fire!? Sorry that it's going to spoil your movie and all but it doesn't change the fact that the theater is on fire! ... you dumbass. FIRE!

Nice blog.
You know what. You can say "Fire" or you can say "FIYAAA!", as in "U R ON FIYAA!" Both are equally effective at summarizing the subtle clues pointing the way toward the housing armageddon before us all in Orange County, CA.
God help them, every one.

Give a man a fire, keep him warm for the night.

Set a man on fire, keep him warm for the rest of his life!
