...on my house hunting trip over the last few days. The four I actually looked at all had what appeared to be either many minor to medium sized problems and two had major problems. One of those two looked nice and was in a great secluded location but had foundation problems and the floors were uneven and cracked, the other also had foundation problems and it felt as if you were in a funhouse at the amusement park (or maybe just drunk and dizzy) once you walked in the door - it's floors were that slanted. There were two excellent houses on my list but both of those were already under contract before I got to TN; they were each on the market about a week. Nice houses are selling fast, very fast. Oh well, the realtor promised me she will be looking at house for me and call me if any other really nice ones come up for sale.
I am happy about that because the cost of another few days trip is prohibitive. I am guessing I spent $650 to $750 on a six day trip and I spent two nights of those days at my son's house.

...that's house hunting not turkey or pig hunting. Or should say, I am going hunting. Not going to say exactly where I'll be but I have seen some nice houses advertised, some with acreage up to 20 acres or so for well under 200K. Seen some others around $140 with very little land but nice enough to consider buying and then going out to buy 20 to 50 acres of land nearby.
I'd rather pay off a mortgage than pay rent. I most certainly am not looking forward to another rent increase in August when my lease is up. I also am not looking forward to remaining in my current apartment complex as it not all that great and I think will soon get worse. Yes, they are doing renovations to some extent but they are being done haphazard at best and too little too late to suit me. Even if the landlords renovated everything here and made it look nice, it would only be for the sort term because many of the tenants here, not all mind you but many, are absolute slobs and have no respect for their neighbors or for the property.
Time will tell if I buy a house or not but I had best be fast before Biden devalues the U.S. $ by printing more and more of them and causing massive inflation. Prices going up more and more and more due to anticipated inflation, as they already have been over the past few months already, and the belief this place is headed further downhill has me sick & tired of paying rent to live in what fast is heading toward becoming a slum. No matter how much they fix it, I think the tenants will turn it into one. I'd prefer to be the lord & master of my own house and land than pay rent to a slumlord. I can only hope at least some of the houses I am targeting have cable TV and high speed Internet available. Please wish me luck on they hunt.

Apparently he's another piece of shit killer of black people called to justice and from what I have seen there is ZERO stink being made about it by BLM. I guess that is because, in my opinion (and in the opinions of many others I believe), most members of BLM are racists pure and simple and only call for action when the person doing the killing is other than black (or maybe they would also do it when a black police officer kills a black person but that is questionable).
You really have to wonder though about why anyone in a group like BLM is not out marching calling for this guys execution when he reportedly did this:
"The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that Sir
suffered a ruptured stomach, bruised kidneys and a torn adrenal gland. " More here at the source. How hard must he have hit him to have done that! I am sure this excellent example,
of fatherhood of
what is wrong in the black community, will not be punished nearly enough for
his offense since he pled guilty and because BLM is not out protesting, marching, blocking traffic and or rioting to try to sway the court to assure he is punished appropriately not only for taking a black life but for destroying the future of a black child by ending his life, at such a tender age, by way of brute force.
About the only thing I will give him is that at least he has seemingly accepted responsibility even if only due to what I suspect was a plea deal.

...and they did it resoundingly when RINO Romney took to the stage there recently:
Hopefully they will get this bum out of politics as they seemingly got him away from the podium! Can you imagine the sheer gall he had to ask the crowd if they were embarrassed! Of what I wonder. I suppose my answer to myself would be that they might have been embarrassed of ever voting for him in the first place and thus are also embarrassed that he is their man in government. The man is, I think, pure RINO much akin to the late John McCain.
By the way, I checked what to call them before calling the Utahns see: https://www.ksl.com/article/24207511/is-it-utahn-or-utahan. I chose to go with what they call themselves in their state - not what the federal government wants to call them. After all, it is their state.
