Condominiums and new homes in San Diego are now offering NEW CARS included in the price of the home or condo or property along with many other incentives. Real Estate (slow down) has been on both the local and national news almost nightly with tragic stories of people over-extended with the "creative financing" of the 90's.
People have been spending far beyond their income with very little in savings for the past decade - and especially for the first six years of 2000 - why? I sense because all of us feel our world is in jeopardy and no one knows what additional horrors and tragedies tomorrow or next week will bring. How sad. I certainly would NOT want to be bringing up children in the coming decades, nor even grandchildren - I know this is a dismal view, but I do not see the world wars, terrorism, or aggression abating - people are becoming much more aggressive, feeling out of control and overwhelmed by not only the future of the USA (thanks to Bush) and for the world in general that we are witnessing the most bizarre and totally over-the-top actions and reactions of violence and disrespect for one another. I do not have to give you any examples, I KNOW you are experiencing them in your own lives and in worldwide news - it seems that each report or experience is more outrageous than the last.
