The Whiplashed American

What is a Timeshare and how does it work?
(Google definition search return)

A timeshare is a way for a number of people to share ownership of a property, usually a vacation property such as a condominium unit within a resort area. Each buyer usually purchases a certain period of time in a particular unit. Timeshares typically divide the property into one- to two-week periods.

It's usually only after you've purchased a timeshare that you realize there are more people looking to sell them than buy them. The likelihood of recovering your initial investment is very low — to say nothing of recovering many years' worth of maintenance fees.


Many people in America who have entered a timeshare arrangement end up yelling bloody murderer due to relentlessly escalating maintenance fees.

Rental units in America have likewise become a form of legalized extortion by way of greedy landlords who worship their God of Moneybox Pyramids.   

Housing and commercial units are flat-out necessities while renters over time can become increasingly and inevitably anchored. Like taking candy from a baby, rate increases and fees ride a speedy up Trump escalator--never down or you can be sure the Pirate Himself would cry like a victimized toddler.

The PR-Conscious philanthropists pirates sprinkle comparative chump change from one hand and frenetically wave the American flag in the other (signifying their doctrinaire free-choice right to play an Omnipotent god over lesser mortals).

So while an American employee can be treated as cannon fodder at work, he is simultaneously treated as a totally expendable sucker by his landlord.  Isn't it interesting and pure happenstance that the shark named Trump just loves real estate.

Well that flick (above) is just fiction, let's turn to today's news...
