   "The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.” Margaret Thatcher
   With "New Bold Leadership In The White House And In Bismarck" The Numbers Can Only Get Better
The Phrase Was Coined By Now North Dakota GOP Governor Doug Burgum - The Only Candidate For Governor To Endorse Trump
April 2018 - Governor Calls For More Budget Cuts - What He Should Call For Is The Cut Of The Waste Of Money In The Taxpayers Equity Govt! 
They Have & Need To Raise Property & Sales Taxes More - So They Dont Touch The Billions In The Common School's Fund & Legacy Fund

North Dakota Tax Gimmicks

Equity Is Used In It's Definition - The Quality Of Being Fair & Impartial & The Value Of That Fairness & Impartiality - As In Well Managed Business Equity Debt - As In Well Managed Public Equity Debt Created By Local, State & Federal Leaders
 The Democracy That Gives Taxpayers A Say In That Equity Debt. As In New Airports, New Public Structures, New Schools, New Jails, Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Addiction Recovery, Tax Reduction, Private Investing, More Government & Bureaucrat Waste.
Thank God For Bold New Leadership That Is Of A Equity State Of Mind. No More Money Squanders, No More Career Politicians, No More Good Old Boys, No More Tilting At Windmills Whose Foundations Are Anchored In Swamps.


Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, 

"Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them.
With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless."

As A Human & Or An Investor One Should Always Do Due Diligence To Protect Oneself - One Should Always Do Vetting Before Living Or Investing - Not Hype
One Can Only Interpret The Unknown Right Hand Side Of The Chart By Gageing The Known Left Hand Side

xmas classic of the mortgage bust

If you have hard time understanding what happened in 2007 - 2008 &
is still happening today with mortgages watch the movie
"The Big Short"
The Banks went out of their way to help you into a house & bet big to help you out of a house,
For in the end the FED is the ultimate underwriter of all mortgages and they let this go on and still goes on.
The FED purchased with fiat money - equity debt - from 2009 to 2014 $1.75 trillion in bad equity debt mortgage paper.
The Congress bailed out the banks and the FED bought their bad equity debt paper, What A Deal!

The FED

Big Lenders Wary Of Following Oil Money To North Dakota


"Here’s a shocking statistic showing just how temporary the housing boom in western North Dakota may be.
Data about home-building permits suggests workers are still keen to rent apartments rather than invest in housing and settle down.
Only 20 permits were granted in Williston [for single-family homes] during the first five months of this year,
compared to permits  to build 482 apartment units,according to the city’s building department.
As recently as 2010 the number of home building permits in Williston, a city of about 16,000, far outpaced apartment permits."

The Dickinson Mafia

The 5 Year (Fantasy) Study - 2014
"The Dickinson region could see a potential growth in employment to of 40,000 and 45,000. / The study also found the Dickinson region to have an estimated
population potential around 60,000 at the end of 2014 and a population potential in 2019 of around 77,000.  Housing growth in the Dickinson region
could increase by roughly 28 percent from 2014 to 2019, which translates into an increase in housing needs of about 9,500 units."

Actual Units Built, 2014 - 535 units, 2015 - 132 units, 2016 - 31 units, 2017 - 57 units = 755 units
The Private Game?
"Triplett supported the Berger Group’s proposal, saying it had better modeling capabilities and questioned whether lawmakers were being
 too provincial in choosing KLJ, which receives a majority of its business from the Bakken oil-producing region of western North Dakota."
