These bi-partisan clowns in Washington just don't get anything right. If you are going to invite foreigners to purchase a home for over five hundred thousand dollars and are offering them a visa, why not a work permit? The visa snd permit could be tied to the length of ownership and not an arbitrary three years. After all, isn't the idea to clear vacant houses and heaven forbid create some jobs.
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Two senators are preparing to roll out a bill that would give residence visas to foreigners that spend at least $500,000 to buy homes in the U.S. The bill, to be introduced Thursday by Utah Republican Mike Lee and New York Democrat Charles Schumer, would grant a three-year residence visa but wouldn't authorize the resident to work in the United States. The measure is part of a broader immigration package to be introduced by the two senators.

THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.
