Just watching CNBC and they keep saying they're not buying in bc the market is up 150% in 4 years, I could turn around and say we're not even up 10% in the last 5 years. It is just silly to keep mentioning the last 4 years in such a context without mentioning 6 months before that.

What exactly does this accomplish? The rich people didn't kill trayvon so why are you bringing poor black people who have no business in this gorgeous neighborhood their to protest?
