House prices went up 20% here last year.  Wages were a shitload less.

Today this was a real headline: Labour announces that it will make more housing announcements this year https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/124016058/labour-announces-that-it-will-make-more-housing-announcements-this-year

They are too scared of the existing landlords so they are screwing over everyone else.  Share values can go up and down, but not property. wtf

It is amazing that he thought that was a good idea.  Just no concept of leadership.  And then to blame his kids.  Not that we had any doubt about what type of person he is.

After this hell of a week in Texas all the leaders want to point the blame at others.  Our senators, the governor, the mayors, everyone, when all anyone really cares about is things getting fixed.  For the most part, things did get fixed, although there are still ~160000 people without power now (there were 4+ million, including myself and most of my family in the area).  We still have to boil water because the water treatment plants also lost power for several days (why aren't these "essential"?).

It was sad to hear about various "heating stations" being opened up throughout the area in convention centers and libraries by the cities, and guess what their hours were?  7am-7pm.  Right, that'll help, closing by dark, when it got down to -2F, the coldest since 1899.  At least when the Salvation Army set up their own stations theirs were open 24 hours, because they know what they're doing.  Considering the scale of the problems it could've gone much worse, and now maybe they'll finally weather-proof the power generators throughout the area after apparently turning down the recommendation about 10 years ago.  It only takes a "once in a generation" storm to really change the worst case scenario, and anyone involved in the previous decision should be ousted, but everyone in charge will try to deflect presumed blame by pointing their fingers first.

another curfew in the twin cities tonight after a cop got mixed up between their taser and their gun yesterday and killed a guy.

That seems like bs.  I was always under the impression that taser guns were holstered in a different way and felt differently in the grip.  Specifically to avoid such a confusion.

Just awful.

Complete negligence on the part of the officer.  I wonder if she'll be charged with some type of manslaughter.
