    Are you implying the government should “take them out” and then name stuff after them?

    That totally sucks..... a 30-year mortgage for $200K at 8% (a reasonable mortgage interest rate in 1999) would result in a monthly payment of $1,468. At an interest rate closer to today's rates (3.2%), the monthly payment would be $865. Property and interest only, in both scenarios.

    Using these same interest rates and the above amounts of $105K and $490K, the monthly payments would be $770 (1999) versus $2,119.

    But that's why you're pretty much always advised to invest in real estate. And if you ever listened to guidance telling you otherwise, you are a fool.
