Gas, Stocks, Houses, Cars

It seems like we have been conditioned to believe that rising prices are always a bad thing.

The price of gas at $4.00? B-a-a-a-a-a-d.

Food prices up? B-a-a-a-a-a-d.

So, when housing prices go down, why is that also bad?

Or when stock prices go down, it’s also bad?

For whatever reason, houses and stocks are two things that people feel better about paying a higher price for. Go figure.

And when you have the answer, ponder this … when a house catches on fire, it “burns down.” But a car on fire? Well, it “burns up.”

Have a good Thursday.

Oh yeah, one more thing … the next boneheaded idea from the enlightened class: Save The Planet — stop mowing your lawn
