    So far in this thread, none of this is in evidence. The report another poster linked showed that the high cost of housing was due partially to local governments bending to pressure put on them by citizens. I asked you a direct question about this point, that you did not answer: are you saying that citizens don't have that right? Because if that's not what you're saying, it's pretty difficult to figure out what kind of point you're making.

    Of course, it's not surprising you won't answer any of my questions, including this one, because if you tried, it'd be easier for everyone reading this to see that you have no case.

Demand can always be handled by more building but that isn't happening, suggest you figure out why.
    The report already linked seems to have answered all of these questions. The salient point is that the citizens living there have pressured local governments to take the actions they've taken. So, again, unless you're saying that citizens don't have that right, or that governments should not respond to the demands of the citizens that elect them, I have no idea what point you could be making.

    You've missed the point entirely--and that point was quite clear in my example. Your response is irrelevant to the point at hand.

    I've ignored nothing. To ignore something, you have to be aware of it first, and I'm not reading every post in this thread--or even most of them, for that matter. I do read the ones addressed to me, provided the system alerts me.

    This is mostly an opinion piece that doesn't contain any information not already contained in the report to which I've already responded.

    As for things getting worse how can things get worse when your at the bottom? you think more spending is going to lower regulations, taxes, and the additional costs of living?

    Keep ignoring reality and keep playing that stupid liberal game of distortion and diversion.
    new cities solves many of our problems.

    No one is tripping over themselves to move to Jackson ****ing Mississippi.
    California is ranked 17th in population growth and #1 in poverty.

    The people tripping over themselves to move to California are illegals...
