Defeat Prop 10: Strict Rent Control, Housing Freeze, Economy Freeze and Frozen Tech


#162

Are guns an obstacle to rent control? I guess they will take away guns first then take away your property rights


#163

Gun owners don’t like government taking away rights. Are conservatives and not interested in liberal ideas like rent control.


#164

At the start of this forum, you said you would buy 1 house per year. Are you still doing that? Or you have poured all investing dollars into stocks?


#165

Singapore has similar.


#166

In BA, rent in rent controlled neighborhoods such as MV, and buy rentals in non rent controlled neighborhoods such as Sunnyvale🤔


#167

No I no longer do that. Stocks have more options. I have both US and HK REIT’s. They give me exposure to real estate I can’t get into by myself. I may still buy a house here and there but stocks is it for now.


#168

Are we officially a stock forum now?


#169

We are a stock forum as much as it’s a politics forum. :smile: we talk whatever we want.


#170

We are food forum, stock forum, and god damn prop 10 forum.

As far as food. I went too the Star hotel In Elko. Great basque food . Good and cheap. Best French fries on the planet. Worth the 8 hour drive from the BA.
Steaks the size of a toilet seat. Including all you can eat sides. Soup salad beans bread fries. $20-40. Five dollar drinks.

That does not sound appetizing at all.


#173

Elko should change name to Elmo.


#174

You have to be a cowboy to eat that much. I had prawns done Spanish style with garlic and paprika. Best ever.
The Basque restaurants in SF are not nearly as good or generous. Many have gone out of business.


#175

Building in small towns where there’s small population. Is it just a housing upgrade for local folks?


#176

Nevada is the fastest growing state in America and Elko is the third fastest growth area in the state. Californians will flock there. Reno has gotten expensive.


#177

What’s driving elko’s growth? It’s a surprising development


#178

Elko is in the middle of nowhere. If you want cheap housing and no state income taxes might as well move to Texas or Florida.


#179

Don’t forget Washington. If you want middle of nowhere, there’s South Dakota.

Can I open an Asian themed casino (mah jong, pai gow, etc) with legal asian brothel there? Could be a winner…


#181

Washington is probably not cheap enough though, unless you are talking about places like Spokane.
