People crave dignity.

 

The System has been Rigged,” the 45th President of the United States (POTUS), Donald J. Trump, has said. He understands these realities.

POTUS Trump undertook to break the grip of those who’ve rigged the free markets that harm the opportunities, and diminish the dignity of tens of millions in our Republic.

That’s a worthy topic to consider on Flag Day, which happens to be the President’s, and this writer’s, birthday.

Millions have been misled by flawed education, and agenda-driven opinions masquerading as facts or news.

Dignity flows from many factors, including:

  • the pride of work,
  • rising earnings,
  • maximum opportunities,
  • innovation,
  • enriching human relationships,
  • the spiritual life,
  • a growing net worth,
  • which can be fueled by the security, and pride of home ownership.

The bullets above yields a healthier society, happier people, and offers the additional benefit of reducing the costs for government at all levels.

Common Sense Solutions that Boost Wealth for Everyday Americans

Small-town business expert, talk radio host, and author Tom Egelhoff plus myself share some common beliefs.  Those common principles caused us to do a joint article on how factory-crafted manufactured homes are a proven path to increased home ownership, that fuels the creation of more wealth for everyday Americans.

Egelhoff and myself also share a reason-based confidence in President Trump’s fine work on behalf of all Americans.

RevDonaldTyeJrBusinessmanManufacturedHousingAdvocateDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Tye explained that public housing – an entitlement – often yields addiction. Ownership vs. renting or living in “projects” leads to integrity, a view he likens to those of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

ItsAsWrongtoUseNWordToDescribeBlackAsUseTWordTodescribeManufacturedHomeRevDonaldTyeJr.ManufacturedHousingNotT-railerNotNword

Isn’t this part of the antidote to the t-word issue?

Someone making a basic wage is unable to buy the typical, conventional house in America.

But millions priced out of conventional housing can buy a manufactured home.

When millionaires and even billionaires own a manufactured home, the rest ought to consider its wisdom too.  For example, POTUS Trump supporter and performer Kid Rock is one of those who owns a private jet, a Rolls Royce, and a manufactured home.

The Kid Rock video below uplifts – celebrates – those who own a lower cost house, be it a manufactured home, or an older conventional house.  Note to parents with kids at hand: the video has some salty language and suggestive images. The video has had over 16.4 million views as of 6.14.2018.

 

Daily Business News on MHProNews sources tell us that Vice President Mike Pence understands first-hand the value of manufactured homes, which along with RVs, are produced in his home state of Indiana, and elsewhere from coast-to-coast.

 

America First, Economic Nationalism are Common Sense

Peace, prosperity and security are all supported by the president’s most recent deal on behalf of Americans, Koreans, the people of Asia, and the nation-states of the world.

America First” is common sense.

Placing one’s homeland first is part of a new geopolitical framework the president is creating. It recognizes the inherent goodness of nationalism and cultural pride.

POTUS’ move away from globalism is a step toward the proven principles of solidarity, and subsidiarity.

Someday, historians may say that pragmatic economic nationalism, personal or cultural pride, solidarity, and subsidiarity are key contributions of what can be called “the Trump Doctrine.”

 

Tariffs and America First

There are elitists across the political spectrum that don’t understand, or won’t admit to, the fundamental common sense of economic tools such as tariffs.

By contrast, the president embraces their use.

When America was a young nation, tariffs protected our farmers and factories. Before the income tax, when the federal government was smaller, tariffs protected American jobs, plus paid much of the federal government’s expenses.

POTUS Trump no doubt knows what Pocket Sense expressed this way, “Prior to the passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913, the United States government funded its operations mainly through excise taxes, tariffs, customs duties and public land sales.”

PocketSenseFUndingUSGOvtBeforeINcomeTax

Given the numerous scandals, millions of man-hours of lost time, plus other problems with the current income tax system, is the president leading America back to the future by using tariffs in strategic ways?

TaxReformPragerUSteveForbesDailyBusinessNewsManufacturedHousingINdustryResearchDataReportsMHProNews

One doesn’t always know what the president’s next move is. Are his threatened use of tariffs also a possible signal for something else in the future?  Would this president at some point take on a reform of  the U.S. income tax system, which Steve Forbes, and others say is massively wasteful?  Image credit, Prager U.

 

Trusts-Busting Yields Innovation, More Businesses, and Job Creation/Protection

MHProNews has chronicled the rise of globalist uber-billionaires, and their monopolistic conglomerates.

The president has signaled a willingness to do trust-busting actions.

Breaking up monopoles would protect and fuel American Jobs, American Innovation, and American Independent Businesses, that historically create the most jobs, and also innovate the most.

Linked reports – like NY Stern’s Scott Galloway speaking out against monopolies, or how monopolies harm workers and wages, – can be read later for more details.

“Winners and Losers,” L2 Founder, Prof Scott Galloway on Monopolies

It’s the mega conglomerates that are automating more, and hiring fewer human workers.

It’s the leaders of the mega corporations that often want open borders, cheap foreign labor, and the illegal immigration that is undermining our economic, judicial and electoral systems.

Progressive “Nation” Reports on Monopolies Cites Buffett, Clayton, Others – MH Industry Impact?

Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway’s manufactured housing finance, production and other units have been accused of monopolistic practices by a range of media across the left-right political divide.

How many more Americans would be in a manufactured home already, if not for the allegedly monopolistic practices of anti-Trump, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway?

Land Use Killing Affordable Housing, How Common-Sense Law Enforcement

Unlocks $2 Trillion Dollars in Additional Annual GDP

Problematic zoning, so-called expert “central planners,” and land use policies have hamstrung America for far too many decades.

Two university professors in 2016 estimated that the roadblocks to affordable housing are costing the U.S. economy some $2 Trillion dollars annually in additional GDP.

Using their $2 Trillion potential GDP growth statistic, if existing federal laws were being robustly enforced, the economy could experience a largely unsubsidized jolt that could create even more good jobs.

POTUS Trump understands from his professional experiences that factory home building can create entry-level to elegant homes.

MultipleReasonsExpectManufacturedHousingDoBetterThanSiteBuiltHousingEricBelskyEecDirJointCenterHousingStudiesHarvardUnivDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

At the time Belsky made this prediction, manufactured homes were selling over 250,000 new units per year. What happened?  Smoking Gun 3 spells it out.

From Operation Breakthrough in the 1970s, to Harvard’s Eric Belsky in the early 2000s, the potential for the manufactured homes that HUD Secretary Ben Carson called “Amazing!” to fuel the American Dream is real.

HUD’s Operation Breakthrough, Promoting Factory, Industrialized Building – Mobile Home Era to Modern Manufactured Homes.

Enforcement of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 – which includes enhanced preemption – utilizes principles the president grasps from his myriad of professional experience.

Mandating the robust enforcement of the Duty to Serve Manufactured Housing that the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 required would also aid the process. Leveling the playing field via regulatory tweaks across FHA, VA, and the USDA (Rural Housing) loan programs for manufactured homes in both fee simple and home only scenarios would too.

The New York Times and MHProNews surveys both suggested that manufactured home owners were among the once “forgotten Americans” who supported President Trump.

Those home owners deserve the dignity and respect of being manufactured home owners.

A simple president tweet in support of those manufactured home owners could be a useful step to restoring their dignity, often robbed by elitists politicos whos slammed them as deplorables.

Enhanced preemption, education on the realities of manufactured homes vs. the myths, and proper lending access could transform America in short order.

That can be done via enforcement of existing law.  It would cost very little to the federal or local governments.  It would increase the property tax base.  It would increase the net worth of Americans.

God is modest, and the Creator understands the notion of saving the best for last. The American Dream is tied up with faith, flag, family, and fortune.  Hebrew and Christian Scriptures prove that the Ten Commandments protect private property.

God isn’t a socialist.  God’s Word enshrines free enterprise, and private property.

President Trump’s taking action that protects faith communities, defending the use of the phrase merry Christmas, and protect Life, Liberty, and Property are Godly principles.

These are all concepts worth to reflect on this day, and every day.

Our sincere thanks for the president’s many successes to date.

Here’s to more, and a heartful happy birthday wish to President Donald J. Trump. Please continue your work at making America ever greater, all for the benefit of restoring the dignity and opportunities of Americans first. ## (Coaching tips, marketing, sales, and management news.)

“FEAR, Manufactured Homes, and a Solution to the Affordable Housing Crisis,” Special

June 12th, 2018 Comments off

FearManufacturedHomesSolutionAffordableHousingCrisis

Popular ValuePenguin recently featured a column on manufactured homes entitled, “Fear, Manufactured Homes and a Solution to the Affordable Housing Crisis.”

It opens with, “Fear affects decision-making every day. But often, “fear” is an acronym for “false evidence appearing real.” Our research indicates that the solution to the affordable housing crisis is hiding in sight, but fear and prejudice have kept it from being widely embraced.”

This “ValuePenguin op-ed, manufactured home experts Tom Egelhoff and L. A. “Tony” Kovach explain why fear and prejudice are keeping a key solution to the affordable housing crisis from being widely embraced.”

The article linked below sparked the team work between “Tom and Tony.”

Talk Radio “Open for Business Host” Tom Egelhoff Sounds Off On “MOBILE HOMES” as “AFFORDABLE HOUSING ANSWER”

May 1st, 2018 Comments off

MobileHomesAffordableHousingAnswerTalkRadioTomEgelhoffOpenForBusiness

From time to time, the Daily Business News or MHLivingNews.com discovers or is provided as a tip a column that is re-shared to our readers at length.  That’s the case this morning, with a post about manufactured homes written by talk radio host, Tom Egelhoff.

 

Before sharing Egelhoff’s observations about a hot topic in his part of the country – and the nation at large – some background on him and his career are in order.

KMMS AM 1450 Bozeman says about Egelhoff, “…Has Been The Host Of “Open For Business,” A Business And Consumer Talk Show On KMMS Since 2004. I’m The Author Of “How To Market, Advertise And Promote Your Business Or Service In Your Own Backyard” (Wiley), And “The Small Town Advertising Handbook: How To Say More And Spend Less,” And “How To Market, Advertise And Promote Your Business Or Service In A Small Town.”

Egelhoff’s books are used as texts in the University of Alaska and Missouri State University.  He’s been a guest on MSNBC’s “Your Money.” He’s also been featured in Costco’s Connection Magazine, Target Market Magazine, Emerging Business, and Business Adviser.

We don’t want to do the SIC (typo or terminological error found in the original) during our extended quotes from his article, so we’ll politely note that what Egelhoff calls a “mobile home” in a “trailer park,” he himself clarifies by saying is in a manufactured home community.

A few thoughts will follow his column. The extended quote in brown text below, with only his closing call for comments omitted.

The original column is found at this link, here. Enjoy.

MOBILE HOMES: BOZEMAN’S AFFORDABLE HOUSING ANSWER

A small trailer park (sorry, manufactured home park) located on North Willson in Bozeman is in the cross hairs of development plans.

Kick out the MH’s and build multiple three-story duplexes in their place. Affordable housing gone. Welcome to another high rent district on the North Side.

My Affordable Housing

About ten years ago my wife and I disposed of our Bozeman home and moved into one of the Mobile Home Parks in Bozeman.

Why on earth would we do something so stupid? All that equity gone, losing an appreciating asset to live in a depreciating asset. Why?

Plus, you don’t own the land. Why do such a thing?

Consider this, as I did. The fine folks on South Willson don’t own their land either. They pay, as I do, lot rent in the form of property taxes. It’s semantics.

Don’t pay your property tax and guess what — you’re homeless.

My Affordable Housing Retirement Plan

Since I realized too late that retirement was closer then further I had to make serious plans for our financial future.

One of those plans was to dump a $1,500 a month mortgage payment for a $400 lot rent payment on something I owned outright.

That freed up $1,100 a month to invest in an interest bearing financial vehicle rather than pay it to a bank and hope my home might appreciate as real estate usually does.

However, in Bozeman I found that Mobile Homes also appreciate in this market.

In hindsight my decision to downsize our living quarters and upsize my investments has paid off handsomely in spite of the Great Recession of 2009.

Some Final Thoughts

For some people there might be a negative stigma attached to living in a mobile home. I really don’t care considering that I’m able to do most of the things my wife and I want to do without the worry of the monetary consequences. It’s a good feeling to have.

Our home appreciates as does our investment portfolio. I live in affordable housing. So do the folks on North Willson.

If the city commission was true to its word it would deny the raising of that park. Destruction of affordable housing to make way for unaffordable housing makes little sense.

Just because it’s on wheels doesn’t make it bad.”  

end of extended quote

He didn’t use the graphic below, but we have a strong hunch that he’d get the quote, and enjoy the collage of modern manufactured homes too.

That noted, and not yet having spoken with Mr. Egelhoff, he may be using that lingo for specific tactical reasons – such as to connect with his target audience. The Daily Business News would note that there’s another way to accomplish that, but he’s a talk radio personality, not a manufactured home (MH) industry spokesperson.

At least. he’s not an MH spokesperson yet…

But in short order, Tom Egelhoff made the following points, that dovetail with topics we’ve covered for years.

  • Egelhoff’s brilliantly blunts the sting and stigma unjustly attached to manufactured home living.
  • He explains how manufactured homes can appreciate, as well as depreciate, part of what causes that are the same factors found in conventional housing.
  • He walks readers through the logic of investing the difference in cost between the affordable manufactured home and the higher cost conventional house, a point that Florida Atlantic University researcher and real estate economist, Ken Johnson has made (see that in the related report, linked further below).
  • He makes the pithy case for land-lease living too, and
  • Manufactured homes as the solution for affordable housing hiding in plain sight.

We plan to reach out to Mr. Egelhoff.  Should we connect, MHProNews will bring you more from this gentleman. Stay tuned. ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)
