Scott, your story reminds me of the aphorism of the great Ludwig von Mises: "Capitalism breathes through those loopholes."
I am glad that Rhys and John have made up. It would have made for some awkward council meetings with half of the four new horsemen fighting.
Sadly, interest rates can go lower. In Denmark there are negative interest rate mortgages being offered; Chase is starting to charge large customers to keep deposits here; and the last four months of my mortgage with Chase will be negative interest rate as they pay me back the 1% of principal and interest.
I don't think I know any of the board members but count myself lucky enough to have served on a committee that George Krawzoff served as the city liaison. I also road the bus system when headed it. Based on those experiences, I have a difficult time understanding how George could only keep his job at YVHA for such a short time. Add in what Scott talks about above, the missing meeting minutes, and the strangeness of George's firing, I have a very hard time giving this board the benefit of the doubt on anything, much less credit or praise. Maybe these things are market timing or personality driven mere coincidences, but until otherwise proven I am going to stick with my current though potentially unwarranted view of this board.
With hopefully Scott Wedel, George Krawzoff, John Fielding, and Rhys Jones joining Sonja and Scott F on council.
I support a new police station as well, the size of an outhouse with the same features. Dual-use and all. That could help bring back some of the western flair. Drachten, Netherlands, got rid of traffic lights and signs several years ago and saw a significant decrease in accidents. Maybe getting rid of cops would be a good experiment in seeing if the the same positive results would occur. If I am wrong, we could do a 180 and deputize the entire adult population. That has worked in Switzerland to ensure no one invades it.
I guess these jokers missed this study:
Tom was my realtor for my condo. I was very happy about that; he is a man before his time because someday the 6% racket on real estate will be broken. Of course we agreed on more than real estate commissions!
Next thing you know they will require us to give up our fingerprints to keep our cell phones, all for our own safety and well-being of course. Oh, that would never happen here ...
Good thing the people are allowed to dig their own dungeon
