    Attic Insulation Recommendations? (photos)

    While the spray foam is the best insulation by far it is also a complete ripoff with companies charging as usual as much as the market can possibly bear. You can probably buy a new house for what it would cost to have this one spray foamed. They have to be marking it up something like 1000%...

    Inadequate Crawlspace

    Instead of digging under I would raise the whole house. Depending on the size of your house though. If fairly small like under 1200 sq/ft and on concrete blocks its probably about $20,000 (guess) http://www.nachi.org/house-raising.htm

    Foggers for crawlspace?

    Could just do Diatomaceous Earth over the ground and any area that you crawl through or possibly contact which you can buy food grade and actually eat it, so 100% non toxic. Then just use the Boric Acid along the walls and floor joist. Even though Boric Acid is poisonous it isn't REALLY...

    Foggers for crawlspace?

    I suppose that would be sorta possible, but digging any sort of hole in what is usually pretty hard ground at least in every crawlspace I have been in, plus with only under 2' of space meaning you will be doing it on your belly. I dunno, sounds pretty harsh to me. Especially since foggers...

    Foggers for crawlspace?

    That low and most likely all it will do is soak the ceiling above it and do very little over a small area. Best bet is to get Boric Acid powder and spread it very liberally all over the crawlspace.

    Healthcare costs.

    Yet magically the rest of the planet can do so. and as I stated in last post if the top 2% paid what they should be in taxes and if corporations paid a real living wage to the bottom 50% then we would have more than enough tax money to pay for it without raising taxes on anyone except the top...

    Healthcare costs.

    Which is exactly why as a Liberal I wish EVERYBODY in the country to have the exact same health insurance coverage that we have, all preferably paid for by that horrible government 100% out of the taxes that we already pay. The only change in taxation should be those that make well in excess of...

    Healthcare costs.

    I pretty much totally agree, however when approx 50% of the country is Liberal and thinks as I do and 50% Right wing and believes exactly the opposite which frankly is all pure nonsense then it literally does come down to Us vs Them. When facts mean nothing, then rational discourse is not...

    Then the Koch Bros should basically pay for everybody. You see the thing is both my wife are fully abiding by total right wing ideology. We both are highly educated, I have a Masters of Science In Environmental Science from Stanford University, she is also college educated. We both have...

    Healthcare costs.

    That is combining both my Wifes and I retirement incomes. I worked for Scripps Institute of Oceanography as a Marine Biologist for just 24 years and retired early, she for the Federal Courts for 37 close to the same income but she had better benefits.

    Healthcare costs.

    You of course realize that this BENEFIT was part of of my wifes 37 years of working her *** off as part of her retirement plan right? I realize that we could not touch the quality of this plan for what we are paying because her employer is paying the lions share of the premium as part of her...

    The majority of that red in "blue states" district wise is most likely massive gerrymandering . As for the LSA, no problem at all it would flourish while the red states would crumble without those blue states supporting them.

    Correct, has nothing to do with the ACA.

    Healthcare costs.

    46 vs 40% is only a 3% difference big deal, and that is with a massive right wing campaign of lies to discredit it. Without $10s of million$ of right wing lying advertising dollars against it then FAR more would be for it than against it. 86% of Democrats are in total favor of it, the ones that...

    Healthcare costs.

    We have had the same coverage for 20+ years, it is from my wifes work as part of her retirement. It is Federal BCBS, same plan that every member of Congress can get and the Judiciary. Has nothing at all to do with the ACA.
