In Southern California's high desert community of Victorville, they're tearing down recently-built model "homes" (i.e., spec houses) even more quickly than they built them, as reported with glee on YouTube by libertarian website www.visionvictorymanifesto.com. Reportedly, many more are going to meet the same fate soon, both there and in Temecula.
These monstrosites were built (and are now being unbuilt) by Matthews Homes. They exhibit the typical garage-with-house-attached plan that puts automobiles first and people second.
The sight of the invincible metallic jaws of the great Caterpillar (invest now) chewing up these garage-forward McMansions is one of the few gratifying rewards of the current global economic meltdown.
