THE TRUTH ABOUT REAL ESTATE+

Real-Estate-Market-Money-300x199

Real Estate: n. a subset(s) of land which includes the air above it and the ground below it and a relatively permanent subset(s) on it

In general real estate is the safest long duration tangible investment which you can make. It usually keeps pace with inflation and rises in value accordingly.

Yes, you can lose money in real estate by investing in run down neighborhoods, in outdated buildings, overpaying for swampland or non buildable areas, paying too high an interest rate on a home, mortgaging your properties to the hilt, renting residential homes during a financial crisis, and can lose money investing during a real estate bubble of inflated prices but in general real estate is a relatively safe long duration investment.

The major drawback of real estate is taxes. If you are not renting the property then you may actually lose money on a yearly basis. Renting can also be difficult with tenant problems even in good neighborhoods so if a real estate management firm can’t do it for a reasonable cost then even real estate investment, other than for your private home, may not be the smartest thing to do.

My advice having a lifetime of real estate experience  is buy the real estate for cash by saving it first and weather financial crises by mortgaging the property to some extent. When the crisis is over then pay off the mortgage as soon as possible.

The most important real estate is wilderness and the plants and animals which live there. It should not be considered to be an exploitable asset but a safety net to be used when the domestic food supply is no longer safe for human consumption due to excessive use of toxic chemicals, monoculture agriculture, and factory farming of domestic animals.

Planet earth and it’s real estate is all that humanity really has to depend on for its survival so living on it in the most sustainable way possible should be the long range goal of a healthy, truly wealthy, and happy present and future human society.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RECYCLING***

thCADCRF0W

Recycle: v. to make a used subset(s) into a different subset(s) which can be used again

Nature recycles everything and it is only humans who create materials which aren’t properly recycled and cause pollution in the environment. We should create as much biodegradable waste as possible and limit industrial pollutants which are toxic to the environment to a minimum.

Glass, paper, metals, and plastic is recyclable but antifreeze, synthetic oils, radioactive waste, medical waste, and synthetic drugs pose a real recycling problem which causes much pollution which is non biodegradable.

Sustainability is a word used which signifies the use and reuse of materials which are not harmful to the environment and we should pursue this goal fervently to prevent future generations from paying for our irresponsible behavior with bad health and a toxic environment. The goal should be to recycle almost everything with minimal or no pollution at all.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ENVIRONMENT

billboard-chge

There is the healthy natural wilderness environment at one extreme and an unhealthy artificial human made environment of apartments, commercial buildings, roads, and transportation vehicles at the other extreme in many cities.

Even many suburbs are devoid of animals other than cats and dogs and there is frequently only grass and some ornamental shrubbery which can’t support wildlife and make it thrive. A ride through many suburbs at night is like a ride through a cemetery devoid of animal life.

The result of this brainwashing is that nature is seldom respected and admired by the inhabitants of cities and suburbanites and they are major pollution sources which makes the surrounding environment frequently unhealthy and impossible for animal habitation.

A biodiverse food supply is being devastated by monoculture agricultural lands and factory style farms producing unhealthy produce loaded with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, artificial fertilizers, GMO’s, antibiotics, growth hormones, and animals reproducing with artificial insemination who frequently can’t breed naturally any longer. Too many don’t respect natural biodiversity anymore and in the quest for the all mighty dollar or profit the food is becoming more unhealthy with each passing year.

If it wasn’t for a small and growing organic food industry there would be no long duration hope for a sustainable biodiverse healthy food supply.

You are what you eat and what you surround yourself with. Too many modern humans are eating unhealthy crappy food and surrounding themselves with a lifeless environment or a coffin of the mind and body.

Humanity is gradually poisoning itself and its offspring with an unhealthy living style without a respect and conservation of natural biodiversity which is the only hope of a future healthy food supply when we pollute all our domestic plants and animals and make them too unhealthy to eat.

Will humanity quickly switch to sustainable living with minimum pollution and a reduction in human numbers? Current trends don’t support this vital necessary change and future generations will suffer our neglectful treatment of the environment. Poison the earth and destroy wilderness and you will inevitably poison all the humans and wildlife living in it.

Worshiping the environment, behaving accordingly, and not exploiting it for short duration profit is the only hope for long duration survival of humans on the face of this precious endangered planet.

Environment: n. a subset(s) of the universe (suchas the sun and/or air and/or water and/or minerals and/or temperature and/or lifeforms and/or the internal subsets of a lifeform) which is affecting or can potentially affect a lifeform(s) at any point in future time or has affected a lifeform(s) in the past

THE TRUTH ABOUT TAXES

efficient-tax-man

The IRS rules are more than 3000 pages long, the Affordable Care Act or Obama Care is also about 3000 pages long, thanks to special interest laws or legislation many corporations and businesses pay no taxes at all, and the poor workers only pay social security tax and no income tax. What is the solution to this unjust paperwork nightmare? Simplify the tax code and legislation.

Historically you had to give about 10% of your income to your religious organization. That is historically fair or just and 5% to 10% of everyone’s income should go to the government.

Accountants should not be engaged in busy work making deductions for mortgage payments, medical expenses, number of dependents, charitable contributions, losses due to theft, etc. for individuals. Accountants should not be making business deductions for meals, business trips, furniture, machinery, etc. Accountants can actually frequently reduce your taxes to close to zero and this is unjust taxation because many escape by paying very little tax or no tax at all.

Sustainable non-polluting businesses such as organic farming, organic wholesalers, organic restaurants, car repairs, etc. shouldn’t be taxed at all because they are excellent sources for jobs where the workers will be taxed on their income.

Polluting businesses should be charged a tax on gross income not to exceed 20% and they could qualify for no taxation if they figure out a way to be a sustainable non-polluting enterprise. This will encourage businesses with money to be non-polluting and invest their dollars trying to become non-polluters.

Competition is international and corporations should be encouraged to manufacture in the United States with zero taxation if they are a sustainable business like the BMW plant in Chattanooga Tennessee. The jobs which they will provide will be the source of revenue from the corporation.

To discourage rampant consumption of information, goods, and services there should be a flat national sales tax of about 10% on all information, goods, and services consumed by the public. This money will primarily go to the armies of unemployed and also destitute which will be displaced by technology and the government should provide free technological education on the internet for all those willing to put in the time, effort, and achievement at any age so that they have some hope of reentering the useful job market.

We need a lean, efficient, just government with a safety net for victims of technology and no safety net for inefficient polluting corporations and businesses working in the red and constantly lobbying for government handouts.

Money is a motivating tool and we should all be using money wisely to promote sustainable behavior and businesses with 0% taxation.  Humans will benefit with more jobs and better health through healthier food, drink, and a minimally polluted environment.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY

sust1

There is much talk about living a sustainable lifestyle but what does it really mean? Wilderness is sustainable because it is diverse, productive, efficient, and lasts for a long time without polluting the environment. In effect all the natural resources are efficiently recycled for the benefit of future generations.

For humans sustainability means diverse organic farming and using natural resources for products which are recyclable, efficient or use the least amount of energy, and minimally pollute or don’t pollute at all, and last a long time.

Food is the most important human necessity which should be diverse and as healthy as possible. This means organic farming without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and smaller farms dedicated to the production of a large variety of crops and not the monoculture crop agribusiness of today.

Houses not in the city should be PASSIVE relatively small houses or houses which use recyclable materials, use the least amount of renewable energy, recycle their waste, and use renewable energy sources such as solar as much as possible. In the city the buildings should use recyclable materials, be PASSIVE durable structures which use the least amount of energy, and the water and waste should be recycled for continuous use. Steel, glass, and concrete should be the primary materials used.

Cars should be relatively small, efficient electric powered, durable and reliable, and with easily replaceable parts so that they can be used from generation to generation. In the snow free areas efficient, durable, reliable, with easily replaceable parts motorcycles should be used more frequently as primary or secondary motorized vehicles.

3D printing should be used as much as possible for the manufacture of products and where large scale production is more efficient then sustainable robotized plants like the BMW plant in Chattanooga Tennessee should be used.

Sustainability: n. developing resources which satisfy human needs and protects the environment

CONCLUSION:

Sustainability will use the least amount of recyclable natural resources in an efficient way with ultimately no pollution so that future generations will be able to live healthy lives and not run out of natural resources on into the foreseeable future.

The bigger is better philosophy will be replaced with a philosophy of smaller, more efficient, reliable, durable, and non-polluting is better.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MEAT AND MILK

meatmilk-300x270

It may not be obvious that the quality of our meat and milk is decreasing with every year and the use of disease promoting industrial confinement of livestock to small spaces, GMO feed, antibiotics, growth hormones, artificial insemination, and other artificial additives to meat are going to lead to bad health for present and future generations.

Here is a Popsci article which shows how quality can be maintained in a sustainable way and produce healthy quality meat and milk in the process. I look forward to the day when raw milk with all its nutrient value will hit grocery shelves and not be labeled as food just for pets and the paranoia of bad meat for human consumption will be a bad historical nightmare no longer lingering in our minds and fearful dreams.

Certified organic meat and milk will be available to most for a much healthier lifestyle of eating.
