Big, Unfair House

Another rich person is building a house bigger than mine, right on the beach in my hometown, unlike my humble abode a few blocks in.

Terribly unfair. The owners obviously did not know that they had made enough money two blocks from the beach.

Can't we redistribute the waterfront lot to me? And throw in the house for spite? And give me a bailout to help pay the ginormous property taxes on beachfront property (my guess, 50k a year for this gem).

You know who else is really angry at this unfairness?

All the guys who own all the pickup trucks in the front yard, who are helping build the house. And all the factory workers who helped manufacture the products in the house. And the truckers who transported the stuff. And all the landscapers who will keep the place neat. And all the town employees whose salaries will be subsidized by the property taxes.

They would rather be on unemployment than let this rich person live in this big, unfair house.

Because fairness is the only thing which will get our economy started again and get people back to work.


  1. "Thou shall not covet your neighbors house; you shall not covet your neighbors wife, or ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor" ;)

    Their 'God-lessness' is always their demise. History has proven it time and again.

  2. OK the rich are bad not because they build big expensive houses but because they build them along the shore and not across the road from it. When will the east coast get rid of the crooks that continue to let this happen because of greed and criminal behavior and zone the waterfront?

    RI's Ocean Drive was taken off the very special list of National Historic Register or whatever because the excessive building there killed the beauty of the place. It is like an overpriced slum.

    My family had to sell their cottage at Nantucket just down from Brandt Point because of the ridiculous real estate prices/taxes. Now the area looks like an over crowded wealthy slum as well. What is the benefit in this? OK more tax money but you can kill the beauty of the goose's golden egg. Oh, and there used to be public access to a small patch of public beach next to the house. Now it is blocked. Nice.

    We need the kinds of laws in the East that the Pacific North West has in place. No one builds on the beach.

  3. Sarcasm will get you everywhere!! :D Great post. Somehow the blowhards like Al Gore don't see the hypocrisy.

    I remember the line in "Silence of the Lambs" where Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal the Cannibal) says to the FBI agent, "What is their sin?.......They covet."


  4. The Democrats must surely be at work on an Unfairness in Housing Act. Senator Kerry whose beach front home is 2 or so doors from Brandt Point at Nantucket is working on it in consultation with Al Gore.

  5. Bill Gross did his part to stimulate the economy last year when he paid $23 million for an 11,000 square foot ocean front mansion so he could tear it down and build something that will make him happier (video at the link).


  6. I just love it when you dig your tongue into your cheek! You should do it more often.

  7. I have the perfect solution. Give the house to Obama's Aunt. She's been through so much, you know.


  8. This post takes the cake, just fabulous!
