Burst My Bubble

So there is some good news in the midst of this housing kerfuffle going on around us. Sure, home prices were ridiculously high there for a while, builders couldn't keep up with demand, and pre-existing home sales were off the hizzy. Now, people can't unload their overpriced homes, can't make the payments, and are getting foreclosed on right and left. Plenty of homes on the market.

Which, since new construction has all but come to a standstill, many wetbacks illegal immigrants are going back to Mexico. So who says they weren't here for the money? Who says they were here just to make a better life for themselves? Hmmm.

Well, with all that, there is plenty to look forward to. For starters, we should now have shorter wait times in the emergency room. There won't be as many uninsured patients to wait on so taxes for indigent care should go down. Not to mention insurance rates. There won't be as many uninsured motorists on the road.

Schools could save money by eliminating "English as a second language" courses and reassign teachers to more useful classes, like Spanish. (B'yuk!).

More jobs will be available for residents, which can do nothing but help the economy.

Businesses won't have to worry about printing two languages on all their signage and labeling.

Wow! The list could go on forever! But I'll not get my hopes up just yet. There's still a long way to go to bring things back to normal.
