The motel is just two doors away from Sarah's place. No use having to wash the sheets herself.

Gas has gone up, food and clothes have gone up, and hotel rooms... shit. A room used to go for $65-95 and now are over $200 for one night, and that depends on availability. The hotels raise costs depending on how booked they are, if things get tight, they raise the rates!
Families that were getting by on working 1-2 jobs are now having to work 3-4. Politicians are doing jack crap, making lots of money on the real estate, and wages are not going up. Mom and Pop places are closing because they cannot afford to pay higher wages to keep up with costs elsewhere. Staffing businesses have become increasingly difficult to where they are closing down early or shutting down a few days out of the week.
People that are coming up for jobs in the field bring family with them, workers come and go. We've had to attempted kidnappings in a month and a half, in broad daylight. Rapes and assaults are skyrocketing. But hey! Prostitutes, drug dealers, and other riff raff and making a killing.

There was a girl who posted her letter from her rental management place, showing the complex had been sold. She started out paying $650 a month for rent for her place. It went up to $840... In that letter, she was given the usual 30 days to sign a lease for a rent increase to $2000 or find another place. I wish I could find the actual pic of the letter. I rent from the same company. I was told, "Oh don't worry. You're fine. This was in a town next to the oil field." So? My rent increased 250% last year. You know what happened. It's not stopped, and no one will do anything about it.

Yeah... forget knowing how to work and operate dangerous equipment, mixing chems for fracking...

We have some real idiots up here right now. It's crazy. I don't begrudge anyone from looking for work and getting that job, but I have a HUGE problem with companies raking people over the coals and coming over and taking over cities, and politicians joining them in doing it. Haliburton is a big one.

Coming back to Texas?

I'm sure the statute of limitations must've expired by now!

If I were to ever move back, I'd go to Kemah. That's about it. Too crazy and too tense for me.

Driving is not a lot of fun here, especially on I-10 and 610, but the job market is absolutely booming here. Anyone not working in this town is not working by choice.

Houston succeeds in spite of Rick Perry, not because of him.

Hell, even a chronically unemployed loser such as yourself could find gainful employment out here.

Send me a resume via PM and I'll put you in touch with some janitorial outfits.

30 years ago I gave money to a company called United Houston Oil & Gas. They sent me a worthless stock certificate. It hangs on my Wall of Shame.


(Next to stock certs from US Air, Inktomi, Global Crossings and several others)

When I was a lot younger (we have rules here...) I would often spent my weekends tending bar, and such at a place were the Dice game would sometimes start on Thursday evening and run until after midnight Sunday.

As I was a fair cook I made a hell of a lot of my money serving up food.

My point is, that people making (to them)lots of money and having a damned good time will pay very well to have what they want, when the want or need it.


I have witnessed some strange,funny and sometimes stupid behavior around some odd people.

Legal?

Well money buys lots of things.

As for me...I like gambling but I rarely do it. i tend to look on it as entrainment which is going to cost me a set amount.

I am happy if I break even more than that is Gravy!

There are many systems of philosophy and political life which try to base law and all human relationships upon the nature of man. Man is made the measure of all things. All such systems, whether communism or humanism, or socialism, are doomed to fail because of one fatal flaw: they do not recognize the sinful, self-centered nature of man.
They ignore God and deify man.

They had yet another expose on the lawless frontier that is "libertarian paradise" North Dakota last weekend.

A local police chief was asked about the huge spike in crime.

He said, it's very simple:

"Too much alcohol, not enough women".
