  1. Good ole Walmart

    "Give me a 40hr job with bene's under FDR's New deal liberal socialist government progams - and I will take it!" Typical, "What can the government give me" attitude! "Tax the 'rich' at 85% - that was when America was at its finest hour" Mean old rich people should have to give away thier money! Daniel Your an american company, Are you paying your fair share of taxes(85%)? With comments like yours, I don't understand why we haven't went straight to communism, bypassing socialism. How is it, you guys think our government does a better job than anyone, telling them how to run their business. Do you need uncle Sam to step in and tell you how to run your business, where you can do businees, how much you can and cannot charge! Then at the end of the day, tell "you", you can only keep 15% because other people think your rich! Are you going to bother to try and run a company, if all the government is going to allow you to keep is 15%? Some of these companies that moved out of the United States, done so, to be competative with the global market, if they diden't move, they could close their doors and not do business anymore! Either way The US was going to lose those jobs! You say you invest in the stock market, Then you are investing in the hopes that one of those "rich companies", makes a profit and gives you some profits and dividends off those "God forsakeen profits".
  2. Have you ever had problems with ticks? MY wife and I went over to clean the exterior and porch's and sidewalk of a house last week, and was eaten alive by ticks! At first we thought it was flea bites, (had dogs and itched really bad) but, my wife found seven ticks on her, smaller than a pin head. I found no ticks on me, but, I have around 50 to 60 bites on me, as does my wife. Most of the bites was around the ankle and top of feet. Then they moved up from there to our upper chest and back. The bites like to drove both of us nuts for about 4 days, finally starting to ease off. They are talking about us doing their house twice a year, since its real dusty. I will definitely need to find something to repel ticks before we do their house again!

    go figure, just as I hit retirement age!
  4. Thoughts on Aaladin equipment!

    This liink will take you to their hot boxes. AaLadin Cleaning Systems: You Can Do Magic! I have one of their hot water units that I bought used with 73 hours on it. It has worked and performed as expected. The only problem I have had in 1.5 yrs. is the starter selonoid(SP) went out shortley after I bought it.
  5. Back-logged! Off to a rocky start!

    Must be something about us Tennessee guys, we were out in the pouring rain in January with highs in the low 40's.
  6. Flatbed truck I just bought

    congrats!:lgbounces Looks like you found a great deal! It pays to wait it out sometimes. Now, get busy lining up work to help pay for it!!:lgmoneyey
  7. How would you clean/remove this...

    It's called efflorescence, check out this thread! http://www.thegrimescene.com/forums/residential-pressure-washing/9940-efflorescence-problem.html
  8. Is a listing agent necessary to sell my home?

    one other thing to consider, the buyer thinks they should be saving some of that money also.
  9. More than I can handle?

    Re-think worse case, If you bid to little, you will end up paying the difference out of YOUR pocket. Remember, a bid is a binding contract in court, and you will be held responsible for the cost, whether it is you or someone else that does the job. If you can't look at the job and feel comfortable that you can do the job, then you better pass on it! A lift to get you high enough to do a four story building, you would need to look at a bucket truck with at least a 50 ft. reach and levelers. That will cost mega bucks to rent, if you can find one! "Four stories is pretty high for a scissors lift" - Forget that! you want to live to see another day.
  10. Cool picture show

    some pretty cool pics! not sure i would use that outhouse. I wonder how many skiers that boat was actually pulling?
  11. Ught-oh's, NO-NO's! and S-C-A-M-S...

    C-mon Scott haven't you got some friends or relatives that live near by that can help you on this.
  12. 1)Get WorkComp, and 2)don't burn down your trailer

    Goes to show that you may never think it can happen, but, it can and it will. Usually when you can least afford for to happen. Thank god, it was not worse than it was. I hope your right hand man makes a quick recovery and makes it back sooner than May. I'm sure he is hoping for the same.
  13. Cash or loan

    word of caution, before you go the route of leasing, know what you are getting into. I contacted a company about purchasing a used box truck for $5,000. I used an on-line lease calculator to see what payments would be for a worse case scenario. According to the on-line calculator my payments would be $189 a month, when the lease company sent me the contracts my payments was going to be $269 a month for 3 yrs, and a deposit/w 2 payments of $926. With a $1 buy out clause at the end of the lease. Well over double payback of the original amount borrowed. They were feeding me the "well, since your a new upstart business we have to charge you extra on interest and this and that crap". Their interest rate was at a supposed 16% interest, they supposedly based that on my personal credit, which is quite good. Needless to say I did not lease the truck through them, I just bought it outright. And of course, you guessed it, the motor blew up in it on the way home, now I've had to borrow the $3500 to have a Jasper motor installed in it. It's still in the shop as we speak. Good luck on whatever you decide! I hope your luck is better than mine.
  14. Just Curious Death penalty or not?

    I myself was talking about people that commit cold blooded first degree murder. Understand though, that the kid ( life sentence ) will likely get out in less than 20 yrs. BUT, the dead kid has to serve his sentence ( death ) for life. My kids know where I stand on drinking, and they know I don't approve of anyone drinking and driving. You see I'm the victim on the other side, my mom was killed by a 19 yr old drunk driver when I was 5 yrs old. 3 weeks before Christmas and 4 weeks before my 6th birthday. I've had to live with that all of my life! "IS THAT FAIR." The 19 yr old that killed my mom served less than 30 days in jail. They were not big on prosecuting drunk driving in the 60's.
