(5/22/14)The famed Kennedy compound in Palm Beach, Florida,
that served as John F. Kennedy and Jackie's "Winter White House"
has gone to market with a colossal asking price worthy of the
well-known selling power of America's First Family. Last sold by the
Kennedy family in 1995 to investment bank CEO John K. Castle for
$4.9 million, the 15,000-square-foot Atlantic Beach compound is
back with a $38.5 million price tag.

Joseph Kennedy, JFK's father, bought the home in 1933 for
$120,000 and later added a wing.

Chateau de Versailles (just outside of Paris) became popular in May
2014 as th place of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's
pre-wedding party.
It is a parody of culture how people like Kim Kardashan who earn from
bikini photomodelling, without any proved intellectual achievement more
than most ordinary people, have been trying to play almost royals. The
society feels like wasting of too much energy for nothing since
reproduction of society needs values and not bikini photomodels playing
royals.

"Seeing Florence turned into Hollywood is not something you see every
day!" said Sara, a teenager out for a stroll near the picturesque
16th-century Forte Belvedere overlooking the Boboli Gardens where the
festivities will take place.

Comment: However, Kim Kardashan is not Hollywood at all. She may try to
achieve a sort of "social status" through her husband, obviously a popular
pop singer, but for how long nobody knows. The cultural value  based on
until now "achievements" is 0. Many may think that the global culture
would look much more valuable without "stars" like Kim Kardashan and
Paris Hilton. For the young they are negative examples of how should not
develop a personality with ambitions to be a positive value in society.
And if her eventual current husband believes that Kim is a beautiful
woman, one may question what a pop star understands under a beautiful
woman. Beautiful woman is the woman who has a valuable framework
for making money. Nothing valuable in the framework of Kardashan -
bikini photomodel!

Deadly violence of Elliot Rodger on May 24, 2014 may finally help the law
makers change the laws at state and federal levels to prevent further similar
