Nope -- once I see a suggestion of humanity, I'm more than happy to drop the politics and sit down for a virtual cocktail. Anyway, I'm glad to see your humor coming through. I bet you're not half bad once you get through that crusty exterior. I fully admit to being "sour," but I think you might understand why. I said long ago that I despise politics, while being fully aware that it is part of the whole human experiment. I would have consulted you about building, but I don't know who you are, and I doubt you'd tell me -- with all the distrust and paranoia on these threads. Thanks for the good wishes. It's going to be a long haul moving all the animals. I managed to snag 38 acres in Florence at a relative bargain because of an estate settlement. If it weren't for all the hostility, I'd be glad to consult with you. It seems as if things are picking up slightly again in the building trades, unless I'm mistaken.
Here's my first consultation: What do you think of modular vs. stick built (assuming the integrity of both are equal)? I can't be out there all that time to watch the construction, so I thought it was my only real option. Have you heard of TLC? If it makes you feel any better about my posts, I'm tearing my hear out and having some mini strokes myself about now. ;)
Florence is beautiful, we used to flog our sand rails (dune buggies) over there. The Oregon Dunes are impressive. You do know the secret ingredient to good dunes, right? I'll be more than happy to advise you whenever you ask, buy I really did retire last January, 62 was old enough for my sweetie and me so we called it quits. I let it out a couple times but you didn't see it. I finished my last building four months ago.
First, what's your main concern? For lasting value, nothing beats stick built. But what you may gain in the future, you pay for now. Modulars are really getting popular but honestly, there's not a huge difference in the final price tag. As far as their resale value, I couldn't say. I'm not aware of any that have sold, but there's no reason to believe they wouldn't hold their value, though somewhat less so than a stick built. For instant gratification and less initial outlay, mobile homes are a good value, unless you're looking to settle down for the long haul. MANY people set up a mobile home, do their landscaping, plant some trees, sell, and move up. But these times aren't really conducive to that strategy. It all depends on your intentions but in any case, you're going to want to be there, or know someone you trust, who can.

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”– Patrick Henry


My conscience, and the urgency of our current situation, compel me to speak out. The victim disarmament freaks are now telling us that they don’t want to disarm us- oh, no! They just want to take away our “assault weapons”– our semi-automatic, magazine fed, military-style rifles – and the “high capacity” magazines that feed them. They want us to believe that so long as we can own some kind of firearm, after our semi-auto military rifles are taken, we are not disarmed. That is a LIE.

The truth is that our semi-automatic, military pattern rifles are the single most important kind of arm we can own, and are utterly necessary for effective defense of our lives, property, and liberty. When you are disarmed of your military rifles, you are DISARMED. At that time, the lion’s share of your military capacity to effectively resist tyranny is removed (yes, accurate bolt action hunting rifles are useful in that role too, but the semi-auto battle rifle is truly the Queen of battle, as Col. Jeff Cooper correctly noted). It is a significant force on the battlefield, and as Patrick Henry said, when you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

It is the height of Orwellian perversion of language and logic to say that disarming you of the most effective arms for combat that you still have is somehow not really disarming you, because you still have hunting rifles and shotguns. And you can bet that if you let them take your military semi-autos, next on their list will be your bolt action rifles, which they will call “sniper rifles”(and by God, that is certainly what they are good for!). And then when they have those, they will go after any weapon that holds more than a few rounds, or is capable of any degree of long range accuracy and penetrating power, telling you that you really don’t need one of those to hunt or target practice (a shotgun will suffice), and then they will take everything except single shot shotguns or .22’s (as was done in England) and on down the line. So long as you have at least a .22, they will say you are not “disarmed” while they take everything else (and then they will take the .22s, or insist that you keep them at a gun-range).

We need to call a spade a spade and teach our fellow citizens that taking away military style semi-autos is disarmament. And we need to throw down the gauntlet and take a hard stand against it, right now. When we, as Oath Keepers, pledged to not obey any orders to disarm the American people, this is what we meant. Any attempt to disarm the people of any arms currently in their possession is illegitimate and must be nullified, refused, disobeyed, and resisted

legal versus illegal...

"Fact: In Texas, citizens with concealed carry permits are 14 times less likely to commit a crime."

"They are also five times less likely to commit a violent crime."

"Fact: People with concealed carry permits are:
• 5.7 times less likely to be arrested for violent offenses than the general public
• 13.5 times less likely to be arrested for non-violent offenses than the general
public"

"Fact: Of 14,000 CCW licensees in Oregon, only 4 (0.03%) were convicted of the
criminal (not necessarily violent) use or possession of a firearm."

"Fact: In Florida, a state that has allowed concealed carry since late 1987, you are twice as likely to be attacked by an alligator as by a person with a concealed carry permit"

Let's use your slippery slope argument in the other direction. Since assault rifles were banned and that ban was lifted, is the next weapon to have a ban lifted be hand grenades? And then will the next weapon on this slippery slope to have a ban lifted be a rocket launcher? And then when that's not enough protection for you looney gun nuts, what will be next on the "slippery slope"?
