    OFF-TOPIC What is the freest state in the USA?

    I've always enjoyed visiting Texas. Seems to have an entrepreneurial attitude, values independence, nice people, mild winters, no income tax, cheap, BBQ, etc Thinking it would be nice to live in the hill country west of Austin. Austin itself seems overcrowded, but would be nice to visit. I...

    OFF-TOPIC What is the freest state in the USA?

    From what I've read, it sounds like if there is a VAXClNE mandate on the general population(in the USA) then it will more than likely be at the state level. What is everyone's thoughts on this? How would a mandate even be enforced? Pay a fine? It also looks like some states, such as FL, NH...

    OFF-TOPIC Anyone prep for collapse? Your life contingency plans...[Doomsday Prepping]

    Bump. Anybody thinking more about this lately? This is pretty wild: I don't think I'd let a CNET film crew walk through my bunker if I was that guy, though :rofl: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX1sRxCrduA

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    I've started to search for 100+ acres of land in rural America. Build a house down a long path with a gate. My goal is to live as independently as possible in all areas of my life and be prepared for anything. Live a quiet life, work on my farm, teach my kids how to be self sufficient, be...

    My opinion is that you sound a lot like CNN.

    You can inject yourself with experimental drugs and stay at home watching CNN if you are scared of the virus. Leave me the hell alone.

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    One day, in the future, Mars colonies may be like new land of opportunity. Maybe? But for now, I'm still as American as you can get. I don't see anywhere else I'd rather live. If nothing else, I strongly believe in the ideals that America was founded on. I believe there are lots of good people...

    Are You ADDICTED to Reading?

    You make lots of great points. You can certainly get rich without being wise. I've always valued being "healthy, wealthy, and wise" as Ben Franklin would say. Pursing one without the other is not something I want to do. Everyone has different values and I'd rather sacrifice some wealth to work...

    Are You ADDICTED to Reading?

    I disagree. I view it as an essential activity, not a hobby. It's the same with health & fitness for me. I'm investing in myself. It will compound over time and pay dividends. How can you succeed in business if you're sick and diseased? How can you make good business decisions if you are...

    Are You ADDICTED to Reading?

    I agree that reading shouldn't interfere with taking action. It can definitely be used as an excuse for not taking action. It's all about balance. Read and apply. Apply and then read. I'm not saying that all business & self-help books are bad. The Millionare Fastlane completely changed how I...

    Are You ADDICTED to Reading?

    Yes I am, but I used to be addicted to alcohol. I'd rather be addicted to books, than alcohol :rofl: Quality matters. Don't read superficial biz books & self help books. Read the classics. Some recommendations: - The Odyssey & The Illiad - Walden and Civil Disobedience - 1984 - Fahrenheit 451...
