10 Tiny Homes With Icredibly Inspiring Design Concepts

*** end quote ***

I have an obsession with tiny homes. Despite not living in one myself, I feel overjoyed that there is a movement that celebrates simplicity, and goes against the grain of everything modern day culture pushes for. Rather than bigger being better, tiny homes exemplify the idea that less is more.

*** end quote ***

I’m not obsessed, but, in my next life, I’d love to try it.

I like #3. Rustic Backyard Micro House (154 square feet!)

Rustic Backyard Micro House

I can imagine myself in my old age living comfortable here. (Where do I put the home health aide?)

I can forsee that youngsters will chose this over a giant mortgage and giant student debts.

I can see how developers would build the World War II tract home type subdivisions with huge numbers of these “lots”.

IMHO definitely an idea who’s time has come.

RANT: Lester Holt — just like Candy Crowley — with a twist!

Lester Holt: The Third Debater?
By Heat Street Staff | 11:01 pm, September 26, 2016  

*** begin quote ***

At tonight’s debate, Donald Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt.

  • Hillary’s emails
  • Benghazi
  • The Clinton Foundation

While ignoring these issues, Holt grilled Trump on

  • stop-and-frisk,
  • the birther story,
  • his comments about women,
  • his many bankruptcies,
  • why he hasn’t released his tax returns

— and a host of other issues the media sees as unfriendly to the Republican candidate.

*** end quote ***

Disgraceful.

Trump was “Candy Crowley-ied”!

1)      Jobs: Holt pressed Trump with two questions on how he was going to add jobs even though the first answer discussed renegotiating trade deals.

2)      Taxes: He portrayed the tax plans from the left – Clinton wanting to tax the rich and Trump “calling for tax cuts for the wealthy,” forcing Trump to correct him.

3)      Tax Returns: Trump got hit hard with tax return questions for “business conflicts” while Hillary got a slide on emails, her hidden speeches and Clinton Foundation business conflicts.

4)      Birthers: Holt asked a “birther” question that lasted longer than Clinton’s email answer. He then added three separate follow-ups to jam up Trump.

5)      Iraq: He hammered Trump for supporting the Iraq War, downplaying how Hillary had voted to do the same.

6)      Hillary’s Gaffe: When asked about biased policing, Clinton said, “I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police.” Holt ignored it, rather than challenge the idea everyone is bigoted.

POLITICAL: Merge two broke cities to make … what?

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3805546/Obstacles-abound-2-poor-US-cities-consider-merging.html

A tale of two VERY poor cities: Cleveland considers merging with East Cleveland in bid to raise them both out of abject poverty 

  • Cleveland officials are looking at development possibilities that exist in its struggling neighbor East Cleveland
  • Cleveland has a shrinking population, entrenched poverty and neighborhoods beset with decay and violent crime

Well, at the very least, the “management” can be downsized?

One would think that a cut in ½ would be possible.

That’s good for the Taxpayers.

POLITICAL: Is HRC physically fit for the Presidency?

I’m not a doctor; nor do I play on TV … … BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), … …

It sounds like “We, The Sheeple” are being lied to again.

This is consistent with the Clinton modus operandi.

Spin, hide, obfuscate, and when in doubt lie!

Argh!

RANT: Neo-conservatives become neo-liberals?

The Neo-Liberals
The Z Man
September 24, 2016

*** begin quote ***

It is a good reminder that neo-conservatism was always a Progressive heresy and never had roots in Anglo-Saxon conservatism. Modern Progressivism has curdled into a list of hatreds, offering nothing but an increasingly dark vision of society. The neocons are following the same path. Guys like Jeff Jacoby can only tell you what they are not, and increasingly that sounds like “not American.” To be a neocon today is to do little more than spew venom at normal Americans for not supporting wars of choice and unlimited immigration.

*** end quote ***

Seems like if Trump wins the “conservatives” will take their warfare / welfare principles off to the D’s.

Can’t hurt for them to go away.

Argh!

RANT: College is big biz

Cruelty to Black Students
By Walter E. Williams
September 23, 2016

*** begin quote ***

The problem of black education begins long before college. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, known as The Nation’s Report Card, shows that nationally in 2015, only 7 percent of black 12th-graders scored proficient in math, and only 17 percent did so in reading. This suggests that the average black 12th-grader has the academic proficiency of a white eighth- or ninth-grader. Consider the following question: If one admits 1,000 randomly selected eighth- and ninth-graders to college and admits 1,000 randomly selected 12th-graders, who do you think is going to come out on top? Who would be surprised if the eighth- and ninth-graders felt inferiority, oppression, and insensitivity?

*** end quote ***

Clearly the Goofement Skrules are failures. They are not preparing posterity for “real life”.

Then, the politician and bureaucrats want to “send everyone to college”. How stupid.

What’s the ROI of wasting everyone’s time and a ton of money on “students” who will never succeed with majors that are virtually useless.

And, I still have never seen a poor plumber.

The problem, as I see it, is just another instance of the “socialist calculation problems”. How can one or anyone calculate an ROI? When a private entrepreneur invests their own capital, they calculate — perhaps at a gut level — what will be the likelihood of a return. Unfortunately, students and their families going into debt are essentially misled by the Gooferment Skrules about the return.

Argh!

Of course, the Liberals in the Colleges profit from the bodies pushed through their “meat grinders”!

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Maybe The Donald will kill the DEA, HHS, and the FDA?

Why These Federal Agencies Should Be Abolished
By Joseph Mercola Mercola.com
September 19, 2016

*** begin quote ***

The use of marijuana for medical purposes is now legal in 25 states and, as of this writing, two additional states (Arkansas and Florida) have pending legislation or ballot measures to legalize medical marijuana.

Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Colorado and the District of Columbia have also legalized recreational use of marijuana for adults, while 16 states have decriminalized certain marijuana possession offenses.

*** and ***

Marijuana Does Not Meet Criteria for Schedule 1 Controlled Substances

According to the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, Schedule 1 drugs are defined as those having a “high potential for abuse” and “no acceptable medical use in treatment.” Research to date shows that marijuana meets neither of these criteria. 

*** and ***

With this decision, the DEA and HHS have completely lost all credibility, proving they will act AGAINST the public good if it means protecting corporate interests. The hypocrisy is so blatant it’s infuriating.

*** end quote ***

These agencies are not serving the public but the Crony Capitalists of Big Pharma.

Argh!
