I'm looking at a beautiful historic home (all brick, built in 1864,~3,000 square feet above ground, see [link=(http://s818.photobucket.com/user/generallee2121/media/house.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0)]LINK[/link] here) on quite a few acres, but I'm struggling on the uncertainties involved with the heating an...

Real estate comps - GeneralLee
I'm in the process of looking for a house with a few acres and the way in which real estate agents look at comps is so idiotic. They just take the property value and divide by above ground finished square footage and come up with a $/sq foot metric. Why don't they back out the value of land, other...

Only one overseas trip... where would you go? - GeneralLee
If you had only one chance for a ~2 week overseas vacation before you started having kids, where would you go? We're big into wine, hiking, outdoor scenery, and history, but most importantly want the experience of immersing ourselves in a different culture....

Why do we let Turkey support ISIS? - GeneralLee
One of the most frustrating parts of watching the ISIS threat grow over the past year has been the obvious support that Turkey has provided ISIS. ISIS members are allowed to travel freely across the Turkish border at cities like Jarabulus, Tel Abyad, etc. Also, there have been widespread reports o...

Isis close to taking ramadi, last major city in anbar province Iraq. - GeneralLee
Not looking good folks. Unless the air campaign picks up significantly, I think that the green zone will be under siege in a few weeks. Question is Obama willing to commit ground troops and reverse the tide? I don't think so. We may see gradual fall of Baghdad and spread of isis into North Africa....

Why is the United States abandoning Syrian Kurds in Kobane? - GeneralLee
The Pentagon just said a few hours ago that they "don't have permission" to defend Syrian Kurds in Kobane as it doesn't fall in their mission to degrade and destroy ISIS. For a week, dozens of ISIS vehicles have been in plain sight and would have been easy pickings for coalition airstrikes. Seems l...

HDMI splitter - GeneralLee
There was a recent lightning storm that fried one of the two HDMI ports on my TV. I need to find an HDMI splitter that would allow me to toggle between two inputs (DVD player and satellite TV) on the one functional HDMI port left for view on one output (1080p TV). I went to Best Buy and bought a s...

Shouldn't FBI be focused on ISIS not Michael Brown? - GeneralLee
Holder and Obama are going to look really misguided if ISIS strikes America in a domestic attack while they are wasting their attention and manpower on racebaiting in Missouri instead of focusing on potential sleeper cells that ISIS might have here....

Obama policy in Libya vs. Iraq - GeneralLee
If I remember correctly, Obama ordered widespread airstrikes in Libya to stop the [b]possibility[/b] of genocide taking place in cities like Benghazi if Gaddafi's forces were to retake them. Yet, in Iraq, with clear actual evidence of genocides taking place, we are only airlifting water and food to...

Most likely path to repeal Obamacare? - GeneralLee
What do y'all think is the more likely option at this point.... a 2/3rd's majority in both houses of Congress to overturn Obama's veto, or a constitutional convention? I'd say today that the convention route would have a higher chance of success, although it would take longer to accomplish. There a...

Well my girlfriend is now in the 29 hour Obamacare victim pool - GeneralLee
She's an educational assistant for a public preschool and they are cutting all of them back to 29 hours per week. In addition to hurting the assistants, it will also harm the children's education as the turnover rate is going to be much higher and they won't be able to have the same assistant consi...
