some thoughts about having a home...

The climate cons want the world to spend $2 trillion per year for the next 30 years to add oil dependent wind and solar as a way to save us from imaginary doom.

That money each year could instead provide 20 million homes at $100k each EACH YEAR to those without one.

Instead we are getting conned by industrialists who are becoming richer by the millisecond, buying theselves 3rd and and 18th homes.

We are being lied to about "clean energy. Money is energy. It takes energy to make all this extra money for these wacky climate control schemes.

Excess heat escapes into space that's a frigid 456 degrees below zero. There are no carbon blankets, air is subject to convection which is movement.

Please have all your climate cons send me their extra carbon blankets so I can donate them to the poor. To date I have not received one blanket.

Meanwhile man's best friend is being put down due to lack of funds for adequate shelter.

 There is a stark contrast in the United States of America, a very wealthy nation, where we have countless homeless. How can we allow there to be any homeless people in such a place? In many parts of the world people build homes and survive. In the USA politicians who always claim to have all the answers to all the problems do not allow homes like this to be built, thus, people end up living on sidewalks and alleys and are constantly shuffled around. The problem never gets fixed and many of those on the streets turn to drugs to get through another day of hell an experience that many who have homes have never endured.

So much time and energy is wasted. Windmills powered by electricity will not fix this nor will coming mandates for new homes in California to all have solar panels which create even more heat and are made from fossil fuels and will add even more cost to a mortgage.

Meanwhile more and more people have more than one home and stay in other people's homes that become vacation rentals thus diminishing supply. A country cannot effectively believe it is "great" when it allows it's people to suffer without shelter.

As homelessness in big cities soars as Los Angeles reports 16,000 people now live in vehicles.

As millions more millionaires are created throughout the world by job killing robots and tech and the rich are getting richer exponentially and people are catering to them by offering up their homes on Airbnb available rentals have almost disappeared. 

In these other countries we see a big divide between rich and poor but so much of the time these poor are able to build themselves shelter. In the USA we destroy what they build as they are "legal liabilities" for a community and "eyesores". And we call ourselves the greatest country in the world. Hmm.

When you consider buying a home consider it also a way to home others. Habitat For Humanity has been doing this for decades and I recently discovered they have thrift shops where you can donate and buy. I decided to start shopping there now rather than at other thrift shops as a 1st choice.

Many charity thrift shops offer services that do help people like those that assist the disabled by giving them rides on horses or other fantastic luxuries, all of whom have homes already. Those charities are nice, but as homelessness has become a very serious crisis I think it should be considered to take precedence over such luxury. Goodwill at least offers desperately needed rehabilitation to get people working again.

In 2019 we have more multi millionaires who direct their monies into things that they expect will help them make even more money so they can have that 7th collectors vehicle, or antiquity, surrounding themselves with luxury, but buyer beware, in 2007 everyone was on the same bandwagon and some got richer than ever buying all the cheap properties while more than ever people were losing their homes.

To create a really great country, and for some to call The Desert Home, we need to be mindful of all of our neighbors rich and poor. I hope we all can find ways to direct some of our world's massive wealth so as to create homes for everyone. Homesteading was a path at one time, what happened to that.

Insulating your home with eco-nutty carbon

Instead of closing the window to keep the house warm at night I went all eco-loon and placed a carbon dioxide (CO2) blanket over it then I ripped out all my fiberglass fossil fuel based insulation which still would let heat escape as the air-conditioner this summer kept cycling on and off all day.

So to eco-save the planet I installed only carbon dioxide blankets of air BECAUSE that is what eco-nuts keep saying is an insulator wheras if I don't hand over my vote to them I will die.

I found it was insulating so well trapping heat that I had to rip it all out as there were so many eco-nuts attached to it expelling so much hot air that the house was getting so warm in the winter the eco-loonlightbulbs all made of fossil fuel plastic, which Democrats keep telling us they will ban or we will all die, were melting.

Noticing that the house was not staying warm I opened the curtains and there was Al Gore at the controls. The wicked witch had already melted. Eco-insanity exposed.

The greening of elitism

US taxpayers using their green $ energy provides desert based shelter for illegals coming in to the country unauthorized with fantastic new accommodations while leaving homeless US citizens to live on all our city streets in squallor without shelter then they move them to other streets while focusing on the all important task of saving a few fish and turtles from plastic straws. As we listen all day long to loons in congress tell us we then need to spend 666 trillion dollars to completely transform our economy, dump oil in the recycle bin which no country will take any more thus the end of ecoPlanet recycling centers, and then watch the Obamas buy sea level homes that were supposed to be under 100 feet of water and watch all of the eco-ELITISTS make gobs of money off all the carbon dioxide emitting based industries one cannot help but notice the corruption and lies and it is disgusting and while many desert landscapes were prodded by government to forgoe their green grass for eco-reasons grass that made a simple desert home a fantastic lush sanctuary those who pushed those bans on green grass and plastic bags all waste so much energy it's not funny anymore.

Land for sale near Palm Springs

9.3 acres in Morongo Valley seems to be back on market for $29K I saw this as sold for $22.5K now it's not showing sold. It is a fantastic location near the hills tucked down into a rural canyon this area is just up the hill from Palm Springs and 10 degrees cooler yet you can walk to local village shops in Morongo Valley from here. And if you love renewable energy you can drive through massive wind farms every time you drive into Palm Springs and enjoy their facinating beauty.

As homeless in the USA soars and individual wealth for many shoots into the stratosphere we have those living in huts while corrupt United Nations officials stole millions of dollars in donated food, medicine, fuel and money from desperate Yemenis

How is this even possible, where are the checks and balances to prevent such corrpution? In reading about this though I noticed these Yemenis ARE NOT HOMELESS. Meanwhile back at the USA homelessness is out of control for some and for others homes are being collected in huge quantities.

And as presidential candadates step over each other to get that elusive prize nomination that will too make them rich, they push the homeless out of their street beds for their rallys where they will do what politicians do best, never solve the homeless problem ever anywhere in the United States as they collect more homes for themselves.

There's always money for rallys.

If I am elected president there will be a new law, 50% of all political campaign distributions will go to buying homes for these people. Then after they are finished with their term in office at least we can say they got one task completed.

No we will not cancel all school debt including that of those who are rich, no we will not provide 1/1024th of a real apology for systemically scamming the system by claiming Indian heritage, and no we will not use your taxes to give every one brooms to continue sweeping this issue under the rug, we will solve this problem.

A world of fantasy awaits us, just raise taxes for it

Here's an artist rendering of how to fix it, spending 1,00,000 times what a small tiny house would cost to create "affordable housing" providing the most costly elaborate "solution" I have seen presented anywhere. It's a fantastical imaginary impossible in reality "solution" that entertains us. There's a running track and spa and daily massages and concierge and....

image appeared on the Huffington Post and it appears this is called the Star Apartments

What's Playing seems to present an entertaining thought as to where we can get the money for such a fix, of which fixes seem more like they are a chemical dependency fix. I think it would be best to call them an "entertaining fantasy" fix not that that is bad, we do this with Noah's Ark, movies, and many things.

Zoning regulations appear to be a big problem and no sitting, standing, rallying, or twitting President of any United States can fix that. What's needed is "the power of persuasion to make a real impact on the way America's cities and states implement their zoning codes". This is yet another way to also save energy so we don't have to keep wasting energy building puke green energy plans that feature as their star attraction, wind farms that barely produce anything other than blight.

Legacy at Homestead at Honeycutt Road & N. White and Parker Road

These are smaller 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom homes outside Phoenix. They are in the $200k up range and exceed energy guidelines with nice floor plans, weather sensing irrigation, low volitile organic compound materials, filtration, light emitting diode lighting.

Also note "N. White and Parker Road" is the name of one vehicle routing system, not two separate roads, and is made using efficient energy saving fossil fuel based pavement using asphalt which is a by product of the steel industry.

Meritage Arizona

Meritage Homes in the Phoenix area

I noticed there are some different interesting styles in their new homes but there's one version that I really don't like as a front entrance. Here we see an open sidewalk entrance area leading to the front door. It has an attached small covering that might help protect from rain. I think it's more of a style thing.

This next one has a fantastic open walkway but relies only on the indentation into the footprint of the home as protection from elements. It's nice and practical with clean lines yet the added stone brings in some warmth and character of the elements we enjoy.

Next we see obtrusive wide columns of stucco that structurize the small roof to not really protect from anything, certainly not rain, maybe protects a tad from sun. It is primarily aesthetic but to me these 4 columns look awful and are in the way. Imagine walking through this obstacle course with as many groceries you can carry in as you park in the driveway walking in also with dog on leash and kids following behind and trying to get in front of you as they always do during 6 months of blazing hot summers. I'll pass.

They get in the way of walking up to the front door especially if there's a group of individuals doing so at the same time. I can't stand this design. Another terrible problem with this design is that you can hit your face on the corners of the tops of these. Your desert home should never be hurting you.

Phoenix homes by HomePath is a government "clearing house" of extra homes that the government obtained many through foreclosures. As the 2008 property crash winds down the inventory on this site has dwindled especially in high demand areas like California. During that crash you could get a home near Palm Springs for $35,000. Now you are lucky to find one for $200,000. Once again I missed out while all the people with money made gobs more of it by getting into this greedy flipping craze once again. These things crash eventually. Prices have soared way too high. Buyer beware. These areas that soared are topping out. Long term your investement is likely a good thing for you if you want to live in a home and stay a while. There are other areas in the country that have homes at rock bottom. Southern California has soared so just be a bit more careful these days.
