I looked it up on a world map. Croatia and Minneapolis MN are at the same Latitude. It makes more sense now. I pictured him moving from an area comparable to weather in the Carolina's to MN and couldn't wrap my head around it.

Other guy said I do not know what "industry standard" mean and I think it is unhinged as I just finished that big project all alone.
I come here because here is better money and in 97. Croatia wasn't part of EU. It do not make any sense for me to go to Germany etc at my age and learn theirs techniks in building houses.
Fair enough!

Re: Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


I did not know Tipi was from eastern Europe. They do things a little different over there many time it's whatever to get by.

I knew some plumbers from Bosnia who were asking "what is all this with vents here in the US?"...."we don't have any vents in Bosnia". Really? I thought....wow

And, was virtually incapable of self-care in a free culture. For all he had to offer, he threw away his own wealth, essentially stole from Morgan and was sued for rent at the end.

Sure, but he was raised Orthodox, which is materially Communism.

Re: Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


^^^ IMO it is a lot true in it. But we could talk about it for days and I can be wrong to. Especially with my English. From my life experience Madison Grant and other early 20 centuries eugenics explain everything as is related to economy. I do not think religion, rather race is key for high standard.
As communism/socialism is in question it simply show up where poor and incapable people make most of population. In Venezuela for example native outbreed Europeans.
Problem with Orthodoxy and it is noticed even by some Serbs writers, for example Dobrica Cosic, that do not encourage people to go in trades and other productive disciplines. It is not that Orthodoxy support communism they do not support productive work and than you must take from someone else and that equal communism . Max Weber is guy who you want read about religion and economy relationship. For ex Max Weber wrote about Catholic order of St Francis as very productive and trade supportive and it is well proved down in Balkans.

Quite insightful. It's a pleasure to hear the honest perspective of on an Eastern European.

I agree. I'd just add that "poor" is a state that results by refusing to create value through applied labor.

And, being incapable is typically the result of being insulated from responsibility and higher demands.

Good stuff.
