re: Obama's Mideast 'free fall' - doubleb
Bad question, after years of neglect how could anyone expect to turn things around with one big move? Obama is a reactionary. He does little of nothing to build alliances or affect events. That's why we are in fee fall. We are alone and out of touch being led by a philosopher not a president....

re: Obama's Mideast 'free fall' - doubleb
[quote]Posted by FT This is the kind of thing that happens when we topple regimes and then fail to stay committed. Bush fricked things up by going, Obama let them get more fricked by not leaving a contingency force. Still more blame for the guy who started the fire than the guy who didn't put it ...

Interesting how Bush invading Iraq caused Obama to get caught with his pants down and not see the rise of Isis or the rise of Iranian influence in the region. Damn Bush...

re: Metro council approves up to 620k to design building - doubleb
[quote]Ryan Heck asked the Mosquito Abatement person about the square footage. 16k HVAC, 30k storage. Part of the 16k is HVAC space chemical storage. As other posters who know construction said, the costs may be in line. But 8.5 million and 620k respectively still seem awfully high for a project w...

re: Metro council approves up to 620k to design building - doubleb
[quote]seems in line to me. [/quote] It is in line, and the architect isn't getting a "deal". Now he may have been dealing to get the award, these services contracts involve a lot of smoozin'; but the fee is the standard fee. They do not take bids from architects on the fee. That is set by sta...

re: Metro council approves up to 620k to design building - doubleb
[quote]Digging deeper, only 16,000 square feet has HVAC. The remaining 30,000 square feet is storage/hangar. That puts the costs way out of line.[/quote] After they design the project and put it out for bids then the actual cost is determined and the fee the architect receives is adjusted if it...

[quote]I'll design a hangar for $5.[/quote] LOL, You are all wet on this one sir. The fees are in line with state law., and fwiw, any large project takes time, and engineering (the architect pays all the engineers involved) and plus contract oversight, and administration it's not cheap. Tru...

[quote]Just a question (because I do not KNOW): Is the "Bidding" and "Construction Admin" additional services? It seems to me that CA might involve a lot of time / work. Am I incorrect? [/quote] It does. La State Facility Planning & Control has a set price for their projects. It may be 8%, I...

Thxs for the kind words. I'm not one that wouldn't change my mind if evidence shows I am wrong. I believe you and I are alike. I believe at the end of the day the movie deal will get cut back. How much I do not know, but it wasn't meant to be permanent. The entire program is a good lesson f...
