re: Advice on first home - I B Freeman
Buy or build a duplex or quadraplex After interest, taxes, repairs, insurance, etc. the chances of actually making money on a house are very small. That is a myth. People will buy a house for $200K and ten years latter sell it for $250K and call it making money. They rarely put a pencil to their...

re: La Tax credit program scores another major victory - I B Freeman
Mr. Meaux Jeaux wants Louisiana taxpayers to pay a minimum of $2.4 million a year for the same $8 million a year payroll year after year after year forever and ever. After 20 years we will have paid $48 million dollars for less payroll than a Wal Mart store has. That is a good deal in his eyes....

You know a lot of things he claims as accomplishments and goals I like but he hasn't delivered. I would love no income tax through a smaller government. Just a talking point. I would love school choice statewide for ALL. Just a talking point. I would love a leaner higher ed and the closing ...

Nothing important that needs Governor's leadership in La. so Bobby is in Iowa - I B Freeman
As usual he is out of the state as we all await a well thought out budget to overcome the pending revenue fall. I suspect like last year Bobby will roll out some big idea in a press release, leave the state and come back the day the session starts as is his constitutional duty. If he cared about Lo...

I wrote a contract on the back of an envelope once. Gave the seller a dollar. Wrote that we would close in 30 days for $X and during the 30 days we had access to the property to inspect it and we went from there. My lender told me the name of the attorney who would close and he drew up everything el...

Republican primaries should be Paul vs Bush--- - I B Freeman
The mainstream, chamber of commerce, big government, neocon republicans seem to be coming together around Jeb. The big money guys in this group are sort of picking between Romney, Bush and Christie.

re: Russian borrowers money woes include their home mortgages - I B Freeman
I suppose they borrowed in dollars because a loan in rubles would have cost a lot more?? Pretty risky it seems to me if all your income is in rubles. Borrowers should have to take the hit. I suspect those houses that secure those mortgages in dollar terms have collapsed in price but in rubl...
