    I mean, I am. So yíall arenít wrong. At least I own it. But, in reality, I know you arenít a bad dude Brasky. I think we need to not accuse each other, even tacitly, of rape/murder/pedophilia and the like.

    Also I apologize to Townie about the wife comment. That was a low blow. Sorry dude.

    Things that are popular:

    low or no premiums and deductibles
    high quality care
    zero cost at point of service
    no medical bankruptcies
    removing the link between employment and access to care

    Things that aren't popular:

    working with an insurance company on a medical charge
    being forced to change doctors or hospitals
    as someone who has what is considered decent employee-provided health insurance and a little bit of savvy in navigating systems, I do not understand how the average person is okay with the status quo

    you never even know what things actually are going to cost

    Ok, I can agree with that. I apologize for taking it too far. And Iím honestly happy that youíre offended by what I said, you should be. I will cease the personal attacks.

    Now back to the discussion about how M4A is just as impossible as government recognized marriage equality.

    Also will add I have a property management company that handles 100% of that. The only time Iím involved in anything is when they need money for something. My dad likes to joke that itís what it was like to parent me as a teenager.

    Whatís the point of rushing to debt freedom in an insanely low interest rate environment

    pretty sure you both are talking about the exact same thing and disagreeing on the meaning of the word "landlord"

    Because I donít like owing anyone anything. Iím sure youíve noticed over the past few months, but the world can change at the drop of a bat (heh heh heh)

    I guess. Like if you lose your job tomorrow (or get sick in the US healthcare system) youíd not want to be forced to make a mortgage payment? but if youíre plowing all your liquid nw into rental property by paying cash thatís like the opposite of risk averse and wouldnít help a ton in that situation either.

    Iím sure teenage DG3 was. Not much has changed. But the tenants are nowhere near as exhausting as a few of the startups Iíve seeded. Thatís another level.

    I am 100% serious.
    Coming back around to this - how do you sincerely feel about Americans who don't like America?

    I paid those off several years ago, to be clear. I see exactly what youíre saying, but I just like to free of debt. Like if we went into another 2008, which will almost certainly happen sooner or later, I donít want to be at 40-60% income and still have to pay down boatloads of debt. I guess I saw what 08-09 did to my parents and it scared the shit out of me.

    Thatís their right as American citizens. I obviously disagree, but if thatís what makes you happy, you certainly donít need my permission to hate away.

    Ok. The 5k offer to help move came off pretty aggressive for you now being so understanding, but we all go off a little hot sometimes.

    Do I want those folks around me and influencing elections? Fuck no, but they also have to same rights that I do as an American citizen. They should never be compelled to leave by any stretch, but if I can help facilitate that in a mutual manner, Iím game.

    This is akin to my take on abortion. Iím pro choice. SHOCKER! Personally, Iím absolutely against abortion, but, I am in control of my own decisions and, generally, outcomes. I donít need my morality to be governed to the masses.

    I think there is some fantasy of oh you are American welcome to our country you superior being. When in reality to move to another country is exceptionally hard especially when its somewhere like Europe or Canada. Many require advanced degrees or showing some tangible value that you will bring to the country. Its why the saddled with debt millennial with a useless degree proclaiming they are moving to Canada every election is laughable.

    This is where I was leading you. Why would you be more concerned with getting rid of malcontents than addressing their concerns?
