yeah ... we are forgetting about our life improvements and just ranting about jews and trump. It's kinda lame sometimes.

I gotta stop thinking about white genocide so much and being enslaved by jews. Such insignificant details./s

I think politics is a good discussion topic but I agree, we should have more postings like this and less of cute animals in the front page.

Great job, man. I moved into my home a few months ago. It's a huge step.

I spent over 2 years rebuilding my home, now that I moved in, every time I walk in it puts a smile on my face seeing everything I accomplished.

So much more rewarding than apartment living and listening to the cholos blast their culture late at night.

Hey, I'd like to offer three suggestions to think about.

1) If you have to replace the roof consider biting the bullet and go with a steel roof. The price shouldn't be much more, the color doesn't fade, they're flame retardant, and they last for around 50 years.

2) Spray foam insulation. Will save a lot of money on heating & cooling over the years. Actually seals air pockets/voids. And you can usually pressure wash it clean if there is a flood of any kind. Ask your local company about their foam.

3) Geo system over a furnace & AC. These can be pricy depending on the region. But some places or states like California give tax credits for switching over to them. Because they use a fraction of the energy of a Furnace & AC unit.

I like it to be honest. I do yard work on the current house I am living on.

Yard work is reminiscent of the good days. Work the week. Spend your weekend with family in yard. Not out spending at Disney and facebooking

I don't want to do lawns. I'd rather do astro turf. It's better looking than grass and i never have to touch it. My buddy did this and his backyard looks like a vegas attraction. All the money he saved he put into things like a hottub pavers and flowering vines.

Lawns are bullshit. A multi billion dollar industry that serves no purpose, and causes a great deal of fresh water pollution.

meh, not for me... I understand the appeal, but i want to be able to dig into the lawn and pull out some FLorida Lizard worms! actually have found two of these fuckers now. I like the natural grass but it is harder... heh

Sounds like an AZ/NM/NV/CA/TX kind of solution

Isn't it fucked up how worker productivity has increased exponentially yet real wages have actually decreased. There's no reason why a man working minimum wage should not be able to own a house and support an entire family. Instead, he has to support a pack of niggers on welfare.

Dude. you realize the biggest welfare recipients by a massive gap are the baby boomers. It's probably 500:1

Get your facts straight. There is 100T in unfunded liability and a massive global debt.

Except the market decides. And the market says that your pathetic shit-tier low-skill McDonald's job doesn't deserve all of those benefits. Learn talents that make you stick out from the bunch and you'll do fine. It's why this country is great, you get what you put into your work.

I would honestly love to move with the wife to an abandoned foreclosed southern plantation home with hundreds of acres. I've toured a few places and am seriously thinking about it. If only I can find a way to work from home.

That's always the rub. I'd love to move out to the middle of no where, but you have to make money somehow. Even if you score a great deal on property it's only yours as long as you can pay the fucking taxes.

Do you have land to grow things on? If so you should check out permaculture.

Houses are always better then and apartments. They take more work but the privacy is worth it. How the fuck do you live without a car? Buy an old beater if nothing else. The dogs are going to fuck up a new car anyway.

Agreed. I will be working on the car thing, always lived with the mentality that if I can handle myself in bus then I don't need a car. But the distance is something that I need to think of now so believe me I will look into it. Thanks for the advice.

Find a car auction. You can get one super cheap that way. My sis got her first car at auction. It was old and not fashionable ride, but it ran well and the body was is good shape.
