Obamas are the ultimate "nouveau riche" buying that place. That is the epitome of what you do not want to have for a summer place. The summer will have people all around doing upkeep on it, and what you want instead is a small place and spend time at the beach.

By coincidence, my parents rented a shack/cabin which they locally called "camp" right nearby decades ago. It was in a field and the Obama place is what was the woods adjacent to it.

Our summer place had no 1. electricity 2. running water but it was a ton of fun for kids to live in. We had a hand pump for water from a well and you flushed toilets with buckets of water, easy. The refrigerator ran on propane, and it had no lights but kerosene lamps work fine.

Obama who had a negative net worth when he took office, will soon find out how much a pain in the ass that white elephant house is.

It will need constant upkeep from the elements; the shitty weather most of the year will require painting every few years.

Water will be a problem; the guys who dig wells out there are the most important people on the whole island; imagine not being able to take a shower because your well is not functioning? He will likely tell guests about not flushing the toilets "if it's yellow, let it mellow."

Obama will have to pay some local to drive out there and see how the place is doing all winter long.

We lived later on the other side of the island and a new famous neighbor built a gigantic house; someone took offense and put a firebomb in the oven with a timer and it burned to the ground.

The beach is comfortable there for about 9 weeks and about 8 you can actually jump in the ocean.

His property tax will be through the roof.

Despite what he paid, as island locations go it's not at the top because of its location; it has no ocean view practically. My friends lived in smaller but nicer places.

If liberals looked where rich liberal hedge fund assholes put money, they’d see why they push solar bullshit so hard.

They invested billions in it, and they want profit from fucking taxpayers.

The climate change initiative is full of scams. When you have a company that sells a product that is economically inefficient, a nice subsidy can transform that company immediately in terms of revenue. It allows their stocks to magically shoot up with the stroke of a government pen. There is a reason congress refused to pass a bill that stopped them trading on insider knowledge of legislation.

Because nobody on the right or in the Republican party is rich, got rich from politics or is in any way hypocritical.

Heh, Heh, admitting Obama is corrupt as the day is long, and criminally enriched himself while in office, but it is JUSTIFIED! RETALIATORY CORRUPTION IS OK!

That's the life. Actually getting the 'little people' suckling on welfare checks to defend your grifty grafty lifestyle.

Is this place zoned to become a coca leaf plantation?
