He’s right you know.


My only concern isn't really Trump. But what BLM is doing to our country that might turn it into another African shithole country too.

Dude, I'm sure he lurks, but Dan has been gone for almost 3+ months now I think. Move on.


He left? That bum didn't even let me know he was just going to up and leave like that. Liberals these days, so inconsiderate.

It’s a business proposition, but I bet there is already something out there mapping crimes.

There should be a Shithole layer for Google maps.


That's a great idea, Captain. We should have the option of bypassing high crime neighborhoods while using google maps. They won't do it because they will immediately be accused of racism.

Don’t like it personally. I think that kind of system would not be very American.

Just don’t accept people from countries that hate us and commit acts of terrorism.

The list is getting longer every day Trump is in office - we won't need immigration reform much longer, no one will want to come here for any reason.

Liberals today on the news were flipping out over the "shithole" comments, calling it "racist". How is that racist? Everyone thinks those countries are shitholes, even people who live in them. It's why they can't wait to leave to anywhere else.

Not saying Trump is most "polite" guy, but he is right that we need more people from countries with similar cultures to America instead.

it's why you should always stay the fuck away from HOA's. It's a fucking nightmare. You are at the odds with the board members about how money should be spent, and that relationship goes down quickly. HOA's are like unions, they sound good at first, but at the end just trump on your rights and freedoms.

Become a board member and be active in the community and it's not a big deal. I'm sure there are some hellish communities, but I really like my HOA. Good people, fair rules and the neighborhood stays neat. No shit to look at or deal with.


I don't want to be a board member. Not interested in that, and certainly not interested in having someone who can get pissed off and try to make my life difficult just because they have a mental hang up. Pettiness is the game when it comes to HOA's. You get a few of those petty assholes on the board, and whole place goes to shit.

You are lucky with your HOA perhaps, but like anything else ... sooner or later shit happens.

I'm sure it's been acknowledged multiple times.
I assume you acknowledge it as well. And of course, now that the goods have been somewhat distributed, let's make sure this can't happen to us. The folks who were murdered for their land likely felt the same. But by the rules of this country, if China invades the USA, murders citizens, takes and keeps land, and creates a new myth to cover it over, then that is the way. So let's acknowledge that is the way and that is what we stand for.

Like all of CA?


Do you see this tax change a major issue?
10k as max write off on property taxes does raise taxes on some people.

I'm talking about those who own a house over 1M in price paid, or own multiple houses where property taxes go over 10k total. I do believe it is 10k total, not per property which does raise taxes on a lot of "investors".

The poor can't buy houses anyway.
The middle class still get the write off.
The rich don't need the write off.


I wonder if people will start selling vacation homes since those are more of a want than a need, and no longer have tax incentives potentially.

When do the "white ghettos" of Appalachia and similar rust belt areas need to self deport, if they fail to fix themselves within a year ? If so, to where and who will take them with their meth, opioids and lack of education ?

Did the "white ghettos" of Appalachia and similar rust belt areas get what they asked for in life ?


Those places are fine, they are not "ghettos". For some reason, those neighborhoods try to better themselves. Unlike others, who are just waiting for government to fix it for them, while they sit and whine.

Why is the 'ignore' link not a satisfactory solution? You won't see the guy's posts or comments.


Some people believe that if they hit ignore, it should prevent others from hearing the person as well. It's a very high horse attitude.

say a family in which wife and husband each make $100K (average in Los Angeles). even when 401K is maxed, their state income tax is $16K. but they can only deduct $10K total for BOTH property taxes and state income taxes. they used to o be able to deduct $37K but this year they can only deduct $25K. as you can see this means $4K less in their refund.


You are overlooking the income tax rate decrease. It will most likely offset the lost deduction.


From what I've seen so far, if you are making over 100k and less than some very large amount (don't know where that point is), it doesn't really offset it. you are paying more.

our itemized this year gives us a much better outcome.
next year (that's when shit will hit the fan), everyone will be in tax bill shock around CA.... mostly in how much taxes we are paying here with no longer write off.

I expect rising wages, thank you Trump, higher business income as result of higher spending by people.

Also interest rate climbing to offset inflation by Feds. Next 8 years will have great economy, provided Republicans stay in charge.

Housing had some nice appreciation in last 6 years, but so did everything else. From 2012 and on you could have put money into stock market and gotten all same gains as houses. Hell some stocks would have made you an instant millionnaire.

Only difference, is you can't borrow money to buy stocks. So some borrow money to buy houses, and hope to cash out on appreciation. Although most house purchases are still families.

Refer to my thread “Brag about your RE investments” for how I turned $10K into $160K tax free after buying in 2012 putting 3.5% down.

A fair comparison uses performance of index funds. Owning individual stocks is highly risky and the chance of becoming millionaire this way short term is very low because it is a zero sum game. For every millionaire made in the stock market, a lot of people need to lose money. Good luck with that odd.

I don't disagree. To me it's just that, different way of getting to the same goal. Some people can make money in real estate, others do better with stocks. Can't do everything well.

In 1 year he turned economy around, grew jobs (by kicking out all the cheap labor that companies were using to replace Americans with).

I'm all with Trump.

With Obama there was more H1B's and other types replacing Americans, that wasn't right. Just drove wages lower, and made rich richer, and poor poorer.

Can anyone name a country that rejected capitalism, embraced socialism, and thrived?


I can name one, I call it Liberalandia. It's a fantasy world that liberals imagine they'll live in if they just vote in for more socialism.

Booming economy.

Sky high participation rate, record low unemployment.

Jobs returning to the states in the tens of thousands.

Apple brought back $250,000,000,000 to U.S shores because of tax reform. Companies investing back into the U.S at record pace. China trying to implement its own "tax reform" due to fear of US stealing investments.

AND THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO.

Hoping the POTUS gets a heart attack.


Democrats always focus on stupid shit. Only things I've heard Democrats want are basically summed up as .... handouts, no whites, BLM, gay shit, dog rights, cat rights, feminism, gender change crap, more people and less jobs, and calling everyone racist who disagrees.

They haven't changed one bit, I really thought they'd grow up after election and getting ass kicked.... nah same old shit.
