          I have purchased more tools in the last year than the previous 30. I really want to buy some land too but who knows what taxes may be in the future. I may not be able to afford land after I buy it

            Re: the depression

            If I was to buy a piece of land it would have to be some place secluded. I would put a good sized trailer on it and have a well dug. Woodburing stove and I'd be good to go. I think it's stupid to have all your money tied up in the bank and investments and not have basic tools and supplies readily available in the event of an emergency. I hope I never need all the things I've amassed over the years, but if I do, I'll be better prepared than most of my neighbors who don't even own a flashlight!

              Yea BUY BUY BUY all you can the world is coming to a end. Why must people watch CNN and Fox news. Everything is just great here. The people that are having a hard time are dumb and needed to be weeded out anyways. They just fired over 300 teachers in S Florida and everyone went crazy. Well one month later they hired back 200 and over 100 new ones its called wedding the **** out.

                Unfortunately layoffs aren't always related to the value you generate. The company I work at has developed a habit of laying people off then hiring them back as contractors, which may be cheaper in theory; but contractors get paid hourly and even get time and a half for overtime.

                  I may be wrong Charles, but as independent contractors I'm guessing someone is watching the insurance costs & all other benefits. They can often come out ahead with paying hourly and the overtime.

                    In some instances, I'm sure they come out ahead, but in other's I'm sure they come out behind. They've still got the same real estate expenses, just not benefits. I think the real reason is it is easy to hire a contractor, hard to hire a real employee. Contractors are hired through purchasing and require far less approval. They hourly rates can be very high, and they are able to get insurance etc. through the staffing agency (who of course will also take a cut).

                      easier to get rid of a bad contractor than a bad employee also.

                      At least in government jobs. Some of the people my wife's agency has hired are brutally awful at what they do.
