But that's really not a good analogy at all. That Texas colony would still require vast hinterlands to grow food and produce other resources. The limitation on how many people the earth can support has nothing to do with space to live. The limitation is from resource availability. Exactly. That's a...

The population is much to high. Are you talking about the world population? If so, I disagree. There's a lot of talk that the planet is overpopulated. And what demographic is it most overpopulated with? Some cultures won't voluntarily cease to procreate. Along that same thought some cultures need t...

Thanks for all the replies. It helps. We've been keeping track of each penny since Feb. 2011. We know where our troubled areas are and are working on that. We've been under the impression we need to keep a detailed record. The problem is keeping a tedious record is wearing us out because we get behi...

My wife and I have been trying to keep track of our expenses and keep within a budget. But we often get mired down in recording receipts, checks, and especially keep track of cash used. We've been trying to record each day's expenditures but after a while we just get behind. Before long a few months...

Thanks for the help everyone. I guess I should've done more research into refinancing. Then I would've realized I am underwater and saved everyone the trouble. I'm still going to talk to a local realtor about the property value. I'll continue building the portfolio and paying the mortgage in hopes t...

Is it worth refinancing? Assuming your credit is good (you'll qualify for a sub-4% rate) and you have 20% equity, then, almost definitely. Quick equity question: We currently owe $197k. All market value I've found on house and land say it's worth $156k. That's negative equity right? Which would mak...

I will look into no cost refinance.

I guess the goals are this: Lower rate while we can get them. Lower payment because then we'll pay the same amount to work towards getting out of debt sooner.

....so many decisions. Numbers and percentages all around. It's midnight. I got to get to bed.

Is your credit good enough to qualify for a sub-4% interest rate? Why do you need to liquidate the investments to do the refinance? Are you under water? Or need to get to 20% equity? Or is it to pay the closing costs? I try to avoid guessing about the future. But if you can use the investments to l...

This is my first post to the forum so bear with me- My wife and I have a 30-yr conventional fixed-rate mortgage. It's $197000 with 5.75%. The house payment of $1214 is painful to pay each month. We're considering liquidating some of our portfolio in order to fund the refinance. We're really big into...
