I would demo a house for 3000 bucks. A stick of dynamite can't be that much money.

You wouldnt break even with insurance and disposal even if you did the labour for free.

It's what most call hungry

But most of us are in denial about the pockets of poverty in America

In fact most of us advocate sending troops to solve other countries situation(s) , while we are now living record breaking poverty here

thats the main part of demo right?? although here on the shore its common practice to burn the waste.. if a house is getting torn down you can pretty much count on a toxic smoldering pile for a couple days. every house ive seen demoed here has been burnt

seriously though, 3k would hardly cover the disposal fees, wear&tear on equipment, fuel, permit, etc

People who never had to want, crawl, humble themselves , or now how it feels to be humbled in this life

People who's sense of phenomenal entitlement to greed and gluttony is predicated on kicking their fellow man down (please read first sentence again) as an excuse for it all in this life

Get a listed of registered Republicans, and answer the "who is they" question for yourself.

They love a dog-eat-dog world, as long as they are the dog doing the eating.

But once people become desperate enough during the race to the bottom, I believe signs like this will be common place everywhere.

I know four guys within spitting distance of my front door that will do damn near anything for 7 bucks per cash.

And even WORSE, if you got them to bid against each other you could probably snag a couple for 5 dollars an hour cash.

But, thats the way it is now.
