re: Building a house: what are some things you don’t like about yours/things to avoid - I B Freeman
The elevation here is about 80 feet and I know the water table is at least 20 feet down. I figure I will simply block in a room and pour a slab for the floor. Maybe I will put in a sump on one corner in case I do get some ground water seepage somehow....

re: Building a house: what are some things you don’t like about yours/things to avoid - I B Freeman
I don't like slabs and have always built my houses off the ground. Present one is about 3 foot. Next one I build be 4 foot and I am really considering putting in a small basement/safe room/store room in it. If I am 4 foot off the ground I could dig out a 5 foot room and the roof would be a total of ...

re: Cuba's new Constitution recognizes private property, free markets - I B Freeman
I doubt they give back the property they stole. Why would any western country invest to develop property there? Same for Venezuela. Unfortunately Venezuela once had a chance then came Chavez and Maduro. If tomorrow either country made private property protection a priority it would take 50 y...

re: Fisher investments yes/no - I B Freeman
There are very few--very very few relative to the number of the ones that exists--who can boast of returns better than the S&P 500. It is really appalling the expenses so many 401Ks and such subject their employees to by enrolling with the big name mutual fund families. I had to look at one the o...

re: These tariffs are unfair--- - I B Freeman
You cannot and if you knew anything about the industry you would know that you can't. Get it in the country without it being registered. Won't happen. Find a country makes it other than China---won't happen. You are a blowhard idiot afraid to back up what you say with cash....

re: These tariffs are unfair--- - I B Freeman
No. It is part of the swamp. The entire point of the thread is that Trump did not consider the impact of a lot of these tariffs. His basic premise that the tariffs will cause investment to be made in USA because US manufacturers will be more competitive is a simpleton view that ignores thing...

[quote]It sounds like the EPA regulations are unfair. [/quote] You are correct and because of that the tariff is unfair too. [quote]Let’s eliminate it.[/quote] I am not for that. It does have a function of protecting property rights through protection from pollution. The EPA and the FDA ...
