| O-T Lounge|| re: Thoughts on real estate as a profession - Bestbank Tiger on 3/3/15 at 6:55 am|
You need to have a couple of years of living expenses. A couple of the top residential agents in New Orleans literally made $0 their first year.
Also, as someone already noted, commercial real estate and residential real estate are two different animals. The former is dominated by men, the latter...

[quote] It's curious when it comes to this conflict, though, how fervently some cling to the notion that slavery had nothing to do with it at all, when clearly it was the underpinning issue that carried the day. [/quote]
Not really. Slavery was so evil and shameful that people don't want to admit...

Every one of those cops and prosecutors should serve whatever the sentence is for battery and witness intimidation.
And they should serve it in the general population. If they can't do the time they shouldn't do the crime....

Same reason you're friends with a guy. Some kind of connection/common interest that brings you together and you enjoy each other's company.
My closest friends are married women. ...

Well the short answer is finding qualified people to fill any particular job and how many people are in the labor pool to fill those jobs. This is what generally determines the wage for any position. [/quote]
And it's not just skilled labor vs. unskilled labor. Being an oilfield...

Yep. Sometimes the chemistry isn't there and your mind just doesn't go in that direction.

My brothers had to work and my grandfather made my dad (his only son) join the Marines "to get out in the world." I'm the only girl, so I got treated a little better.
I work on my book 8 hours or more every day. I know what hard work is.
That's the problem. You've always liv...

I refuse to go through those lines on principle. That's the store's job and I ain't gonna do their work for them for free. Screw that.

Had a catastrophic plan for $100/mo, which is right for me since I haven't used the medical system since the Clinton Administration.
But Obama decided I'm not allowed to have that plan anymore because it doesn't cover crucial medical necessities like drug rehab and contraception. The che...

Your own graph shows that it's never been higher than $11.
And I can tell you've never had to make an honest living because you believe burger flippers should make more per hour than salaried, white collar workers. Entry level professional job...
