The Important Matter of General Contractors
One guy, named Frank, is obviously in the Italian mafia. He looks like Phil Leotardo and sends a 6'5/275 pound gorilla to "collect," after every 1/4th of the job is complete. I am constantly arguing with him and his fucking prices are absurd.
For example, he charged me $850 to skim coat and prime a small wall. Whenever I ask him to do a job, his initial reply is: "that's gonna cost ya." Then he proceeds to mark me up 300%. Everything starts at 1,000 dollars. Everything.
However, Frank and I have a certain understanding with one another. He probably thinks I sell crack, being so young and able to pay him 30k in cash on a day's notice. He, on the other hand, has ample supply of "illegal Mexican's," who do everything-- soup to nuts.
In short, Frank has probably whacked a lot of people to get where he is today. Who am I to debate his inflationary construction bills?
The way I look at it, it's good for karma. The more money I give Frank, the higher my stocks go.
I've even gone so far as to bypass the contractors and discuss the situation directly with the "illegal Mexican's" but they sense my desperation and are sticking it to me as well.
He'll serve you a nice cocktail of Scotch and water, while taking you to the cleaners.
I don't think it's 3:40 like it normally is...
Looks to me like a break of the 50-day just sent it lower.
No news that I see.
dudsephs, it boils down to this:
congress is a "bunch o' cunts," which is not a failed cereal brand like it sounds. It is an apt description for ritards making tax laws with huge consequences and not understanding shit along the way.
luxury auto, according to tax law - more than $15,300
For fucks sake, you get a stand. exempt+ded of $8,750, congress' idea of how much it costs to have basic sustenance and living.
They are morons who have no prblem making wrong laws. They will crush america like I crush gypsy children.
Watch it with the crushing of gypsy children.
Once, I saw a gypsy child out on my lawn. I ran out and crushed him with this heavy machinery I had lying around. I was like, "fuck you gypsy child" while I crushed it.
A neighbor heard me, called the cops and I've been under house arrest since. Now I can't do anything except trade stocks in this cave, invariably losing money unless I buy the stocks that Fly recommends.
Speaking of, I notice kidstock officially lost all his money and shut down his blog. Huzzah.
you guys fucking blow. that is the most irresponsible use of money I have every heard. I literally guarantee you a better return, just paypal it over. Your return, of course, will be zero, but yards better than your current -95% compounded annually;so it'll be a big improvement.
I have looked here is not much out there. It even seems that Broker was trading on spec and rumors i.e "Fedelity is buying," and "my friend says..."
After some personal losses and observing friends loose big money in DNDN, I avoid semis and biotech altogether.
