Jonathan Sampson replied to Tim's discussion 'How do I build this?'
"Actually, this is basically a self-draining planter box with fill (albeit big and with different materials). All you need to do is set your fencing evenly around the rough dimensions of 9 x 48. But, instead of carrying the fence line down the slope,…"

"I think so too - it's going to be a repeat of the 2000 era boom/bust cycle. Build build build, money money money... and then oh $hit. "

"Oh Craig, you know the answer to that: OBAMA! Right Bob??? But yes it is shocking that this sort of discussion has been floating around Land8's forums. Bob and I have butted heads on other Land8 threads as well, so his rhetoric is no surprise…"

"Having worked on both sides of private sector and the public sector - if you don't have LA's providing oversight and direction to the public (infrastructure) contracts prior to the RFP process, there won't be any/many LA contracts to…"

"Back on point - federal agencies are already feeling the crunch of budget cuts and more cuts can be expected on the coastal states if they don't crack under pressure from dc. So like I expected, public sector LA jobs will almost completely…"

"You have a very interesting perspective Dave, some of your opinions I share, some I don't. The ACA could be improved. Like most legislation it will need refinement as time goes on. It does benefit people, though, and it's fairly…"

Jonathan Sampson replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"Anecdotal evidence: my MLA class was about 65% women, but the data (like CLARB shows) indicates that the industry is about 50/50. But you and I both know that there's a lot of burn out + a lot of people just never get their LA license. So…"

"Come on Bob, you haven't corned the market on what LA is. I know lots of successful LAs that probably couldn't pass a life drawing class, but are doing just great in the industry. Face it, hand drawing is disappearing. Which is kinda sad,…"

Jonathan Sampson replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"Fact: more women are in LA school than men. Reality: seems like a gender split field, but that's probably from flame-out more than anything else.  Fact: most (new) LA's have minimal hand drawing skills. Reality: almost everyone just…"

"Actually, it makes sense why a) people wanted to give mortgages to people b) why people wanted to have them. It stems from the American dream (right?), not 'social engineering', unless you call the propagation of picturesque 1950s american…"

"Really Bob?! Who put us in this situation to begin with - uh, Bush anyone? And with those free-market republican ideals American's over reached to buy homes that lenders gladly supported and developers (every tom dick and harry) cashed-in on it…"

"I agree that university's are businesses and to be skeptical, but when I applied to my MLA program I was one of about 50 candidates for 12 spots. Maybe for the BSLA there are better odds."

Jonathan Sampson replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"I'm just parroting. My opinion is this: by selection, everyone who gets into LA school is talented. Some are better than others, but all are talented. Everyone who gets through LA school has the right skillset to find work. That's a…"
