Hates Mobile Homes
18, 2004 rljojodean:
do you know the devil didn't do it?
Ok i'm buying a manufactured home and just happen to run across
your web site. Man "get a grip" is about the only thing
i can say here as i'm srue others will read this and I'm not one
to add profanity in letters i write like this. I'm not a perfect
man, ya i do my fare share of sinning, i've been slain in the holy
spirit, been baptised cathloc and southern baptist, and i'm here
to say i do not run distractions on others comments or belief's.
that goes for gays, lesbians, people who live together not married,
and so forth. everyone's opinion is their own and i respect that.
however this website is "in my opinion" way off in left
field. Pull ur head out ur butt will ya. Me, my wife, my kids, and
my ex-thing-wife all survived hurricane Isibel here in Virginia.
Well let me tell ya something. I seen with my own eyes, the devistation
created by this storm. hundreds of thousands of stick and steel
built homes either totally destroyed or heavily damaged. I took
a trip with a friend of mine to the o
I've seen tons of garbage in my time and I have come to this conclusion
it dosen't make you trailer trash if you live in a moble home it's
how you live that determins if you truly are garbage
oh yes by the way , I don't beleive you know GOD at all and if so
when did he make you his messenger ???
you guys out of your Minds?
Two things . . . 1. You guys clearly have way too much free time
. . . 2. It can take years of unanswered prayers before realizing
that prayer is only effective when it's made to the one that made
us to pray in the first place and that it's done with a pure heart.
God moves on belief, not unbelief. Hope that doesn't sound pious.
These mobile homes you speak of are trailors.... I live in and sell
mobile homes. My avg price on a double wide is 55-65k on the home
only. most land home pckgs are over 120k... and this is in Kentucky.
These trailors are what make it hard to put a 2200sg ft mobile home
in a nice neighbored that may require a 1200 sg ft site built that
does not meet near the standards of the mobile home industry. Lets
see these builders pass HUD
about the other mobile home owners 2 !!!!
I dont think u should blame god for all the destruction of mobile
homes. God doesnt hate any1 or anything. I 2 live in a mobile home
and it is not trashy. I think if youre going 2 show all the trashy
mobile homes then you should show the decent 1s as well. At least
most of the people that live mobile home dont owe 70,000 to 100,000
dollars on their homes. Next time you publish something think about
it befor you publish it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a Christian and a mobile home owner the only thing I found offensive
here was your lack of reverence toward the Lord. But since we're
talking about mobile homes, I'll go on to say that my husband and
I often laugh at mobile home parks. When we were looking into buying
one there were parks we didn't even want to drive through for fear
of plastic pink flamingos and old pontiacs on blocks and then there
was a lovely park that turned down our application even though we
were prepared to pay for a newer mobile home in cash just because
we didn't have a history of $20,000 in the bank for at least a year!
(By the way, we aspire to that park someday!!!) Seriously though,
at the age of 23, through some seriously good financial planning
on my husband's part, we bought a remodelled mobile home for $28,000.
I'm the only one of my friends that owns anything, but we had the
money and we figured that if lived here, saved money and did a few
more improvements like vinyl siding and a rubber roof, we'll be
MOBILE HOMES AS A OWNER OPERATOR. MOST OF THE HOMES SHOWN ON YOUR
SITE AND MISSOURI AND GREAT MISS OR OLDER HOMES. BUT THEY ARE STILL
STANDING. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A HOUSE GO DOWN THE ROAD 70 MPH AND
STAY TOGETHER. JUST REMEMBER A TORNADO DOES NOT CARE IF IT IS A
HOUSE CAR MOBILE HOME. ALL HOMES THESE DAYS ARE BUILT WITH THE SAME
A HOUSE USES.
Hates Mobile Homes
interesting analogy. A metal home poorly grounded usually with no
foundation, and by some "weird" coincidence a lot of bad
things happen to them. Perhaps God also hates people that walk out
into traffic- a lot of bad things happen to people when they do
that too. Perhaps God hates people that play with fire- they always
seem to get burned. Personally I think God only hates Democrats
(or similar rationalizations and people who only gather facts that
support their conclusions and ignore facts that do not).
to admit, this is a hilarious site. The people that are flaming
and leaving hateful message to you just can't seem to take a joke.
There's nothing wrong with living in a trailer, but some of these
pitiful excuses could stand a clean up! There's nothing wrong with
being poor, but being dirty is another thing. Keep up the good work!
have a couple things to say... #1- God doesn't hate anyone or anything.#2
I live in a moible home on a large piece of my own land. My husband
and I are living there while I am working my way through dental
school and he is a head manager of a car dealership. We could have
a nicer home then you probably live in and we both have 2003 cars.
The next time you go putting down EVERYONE who lives in a mobile
home, think again. If this whole page was meant as a joke then that
is fine but consider the people who find it easier and pleasent
to live in the mobile homes. How about you get a life and stop accussing
your maker of things you don't even know about.
i have something else to say- you are the dumbest idiot i have ever
heard of. you have to be joking, right???
this is the funniest site ive ever visited. thanks for good laughs,
and good creative ideas for the trailer im buying!
I agree that SOME mobile homes look trashy and there is no excuse
for it other than just being a lazy slob, and you are certainly
making a point of pointing this out, but I live in one on ten acres
and it is a beautiful home and landscape, so how about showing some
of the beauties out there instead of making fun of the trailer trash?
I guess this is how you get your kicks, eh? Sort of like taking
candy from a baby or picking on a kid with glasses?
firstname.lastname@example.org: dick breath
are you really from new jersey "the garbage state" and
then making fun of mobile homes? i don't live in a mobile home,but
you probably have built a a home on my, or someone else's piss and
shit filled diaper's. hope you like smelling my shit every waking
hour. thank's for making your entire state a landfill for all the
world's garbage.i've been to new jersey,and hell (hell is a lot
better). FUCK YOU VERY MUCH .
So where do you get the idea I'm from New Jersey? (I'm not) -- And
what, exactly, difference would that make?
Shiza1: Hey people take a joke. I think the pics were
funny. I know alot of people don't have money and
have to do with what they have. But rather you live in
a trailer or house clean it up. Do you really think other people
out there in the world aren't talking about your rat hole? Their
just not taking pics and making a website. And your place doesn't
look like crap because your poor. It's because your lazy!!
So stop spending so much time crying and go clean your yard.
If you don't have enough room for your stuff at least put it in the
back yard. And if the website was about houses I would still
laugh at all the trashy pics.
Jessica: Very amusing website! When people say you're sick & arrogant,
I wonder why they leave out hilarious & observant too! Some of
the comments you printed give the distinct impression that christians
have no sense of humor -- & white trash no pride or they'd be
boasting instead of denying. Thanks for some giggles.
Rick Berger: Way fun. I
liked it. Well written.
The churlish responses from the born-agains only reinforce my innate
tendency to run away from true believers as fast and as far as I can.
Taking up the credo seems to require checking your sense of humor
at the pulpit.
While atheists and the Gods may laugh, it is apparent the devout cannot.
3/3/2001 Chuck and Rose Henry:
I thought that your observations were very amusing. It would
appear that you have struck a nerve with some of those surfing the
'net. I think that the funniest is the one from a 15 year old
girl whose email address amounts to "So Sexy@ whatever.com".
Could there possibly be anything more white trash than a 15 year old
child using a name like sexy to identify herself to others?
(I'm sure there are a ton of trailer trash thinking, "15 ain't
no child, she's a woman!!!" Note the drool leaking from the corner
of their mouths.)
Now, I am not saying that a trailer(it IS a trailer, or was at
one time, how the hell did it get to the site?) can't be maintained
and be a well kept home, it's just that the majority of them have
piles of trash out front and seem to be sought out by natural disaster.
As far as the those who wrote in on a theological note, just sit down
and shut the hell up. The whole thing is a joke. It's
sad that we have become so sensative in this society that we all sit
down and cry every time someone mutters anything politically incorrect.
I see the term fortunate and less-fortunate used a lot here.
I disagree. I grew up very poor and even now do not consider
myself "fortunate". It's called hard work and education.
While my buddies still live in trailers, drive new trucks, and have
new boats and all of the toys they want, get drunk every weekend and
gripe about being poor, I live in a nice house, DON'T have all of
the toys but am easily approaching my first million in the bank and
on the market, whilst driving around in my old 1994 pickup.
Fortunate? NO!!! I just choose to invest and save rather than
keep up with the Jones.
Love the site!!! You need to visit all of the other trailer
I just wanted to add that Beanie Babies, and Hot Wheels NASCAR collectables
are NOT a reasonable investment opportunity.
- Bill Bergen: Your article on
mobile homes is arogant,ignorant,sick and pathetic. But it is
only the opinion of a few, as you well know. Their are probably
more run down regular type homes(Built from the ground up) that
you could sneer at when you feel the need to boost your ego or low
self esteem. I hope you get yourself some therapy,love or understanding
of other people and their feelings soon before you have serious problems.
- Ralph213@webtv.net: God does
not hate mobile homes. Mobile homes can be very nice. I have always
liked them. We had three houses but gave them up for a mobile home.
God guided us to this home. God doesn't hate mobile homes, He hates
SIN!!!!!!!!! Where do you get your information? I didn't read
that in the Bible, which is God's word. There are seven things in
the Bible God hates and Moble Homes are not one of them. I'm not trying
to make you like them, but don't say God, or anyone else, hates them
unless they tell you themselves.
- R.Bradlow@att.net: Dear
web page designer,
( I am sending this to several of you in regards to Manufactured Homes
and their dwellers. )
As we all share our brief existence on this planet
together may I say that slinging mud around at others expense is not
productive nor healthy. While my attempts at teaching any of you humility,
compassion, or empathy may be futile, I will still give it a shot
as I pray that this will not fall on deaf ears or closed minds.
Since some of you have brought God into the picture,
let me quote some scripture ( Matthew 7:1-5 NIV )
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
2.For the Same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with
the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3.Why do you look
at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention
to the plank in your own eye? 4.How can you say to your brother, 'Let
me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank
in your own eye? 5.You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your
own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your
of homeless as a result of Hurricane Andrew - Small fraction
of which were Manufactured Home owners. Click
here to see two photo archives courtesy of NOAA. - Meteorological
Monster Hurricanes and their aftermath.
My 30 year old Manufactured Home and I both survived Hurricane Andrew
and my 30 year old home looks better than most new homes. While
this is not my preferred choice of dwelling, I have made do with
what I have. None the less, I still have a roof over my head to
call home until my situation improves.
for taking the time to read this and view the attached links thoroughly.
- email@example.com: well your
site was semi amusing, only because i will assume that it was written
dilebratly to rise some anger and opinions. i would like to
just pass along some advise. be careful who you insult.
first i'd like to just pass along to the readers of
this site to keep in mind that the media has control over what you
see after each natural disaster. why its much more fun to show
the lesser of the community loosing their asses, rather than the tv
crews families or themselves loose everything. right??????
i would also like you to address how funny all the dead bodies and
wrecked lives were as you look at the crushed mobile homes spread
all over after a storm? are the mangled bodies just as
funny as the mangled homes?
and would God rather look down to see all those people who live in
mobile homes living on the street? or how about putting them
up in your home? you seem to present yourself as the almighty
with all the answers, just give us a better solution 'o great one'.
- Rat Fan: My husband is a probation
officer, and one of his clients worked at a factory where 'manufactured
homes' were...uh, manufactured. We were considering buying a modular
home and putting it on 10 acres, preferably near a lake. The client
was adamant that this was a bad idea. He said that when being built,
the builders are very careless ; they shove broken tools, lunch bags,
fast food containers and unmentionable detrius down in the sections,
which are then carelessly soldered together.He said he'd never
live in one, after what he's seen.
real question is this: why are hardworking bluecollar people, who
were once able to buy decent homes on one income, now barely able
to rent a crappy trailer on two fulltime incomes???? Between the
shipping of factory jobs overseas, plus the gouging of Americans
via obscene rates of taxation, more and more US citizens are living
on the edge of poverty. And don't fool yourself into thinking that
people who live in trailers are 'different', that they all act like
the people on Jerry Springer, that they're stupid and lacking in
education, and no college graduate is among their numbers. The proliferation
of trailer parks is a testimony to the gross inequities of the US
economy, it is NOT a reflection on the poor and working class .
are not fit for human habitation. If they were banned, would decent
site built homes for low income people start being built? Or would
homelessness increase, and the rents on these glorified tin cans
get even steeper?
very glad I'm in a site built home with a basement, but every
time I drive by a trailer park, I think, "There but for the
grace of God....". And I feel that as the income gap widens,
the tax rate increases, more jobs are lost overseas, and the trade
gap worsens, more and more people will feel the same.
I sign my name to anything I write, but given some of the things
I put in the first paragraph, plus the chance of this being posted
(which you're welcome to do), I believe I'll use my nomme de nette,
and sign this
- Christilectro@aol.com: First-why
the Pink Floyd;The Wall picture? Second-The reason trailers are damaged
more in storms in obvious:they are lighter, not grounded, and are
often in places away from lakes.
As a carpentar
and Christian, I disagree with everything on your page! If Gods
wrath was the reason, how come gay bars aren't destoyed? Theres
a block of 4 gay bars near my house which would be a perfect oppertunity
for God to show His anger twoard gay sinners. In the Bible we read
about homosexuals: "these will not see the knigdom of God"
and we read "blessed are the poor". This site was a waste
of my time and yours! What about Gods anger twoard rich people?
The Bible says things about rich and how possesions on earth will
rust and be eaten by moths, it says, stack up treasures in heaven
where they can be enjoyed eternally".This is not a theological
site, your right, because there are no theological evidences to
support your theory!
I'm 15 and I live in a mobile home. We just moved here out of a house
actually. I thought your article was funny because I used to think
that same way until we moved here. Now I finally have my own bathroom,
a bigger room than I had before..its exactly like our house was, without
like you, and how I used to be will never know the beauty of living
in/buying a mobile home until they do. Who wants to pay $150,000
to live in an on-site built house for 2 people.....when you can
buy a beautiful lot and mobile home with an in-ground swimming pool,
huge deck and Jacuzzi for $80,000???? Not me or my mother. Thats
- Mystar: Well for starters, God
is not a he or a she. Are hurricanes, tornados, cyclones, typhoons,
thunder storms, and everyday weather not the result of atmospheric
and earthly conditions? Not a God. So Nature rules all, such as evolution,
weather, right down to the D.N.A. of humans, animals, plants and vegetation,
(a category I believe you fit under). (Nature sure screwed up on the
gene pool with your birth)! You have to know a bit about life to get
this, (sorry you won't understand). End of lesson one.
is so obvious your a man. If not, you should be. A dead give-away is
your total lack of understanding anything. Also trying to create, I
repeat, TRYING to create, a J-O-K-E out of others' misfortunes, (I'll
bet the majority of the smart-assed comments from the E-mails are from
men). Why do you waste your time,(don't you work?), energy, and good
film on such NEGATIVE output? There's so much more to life, (something
you don't seem to have). You don't even know the difference between
a TRAILER and a MOBILE. A trailer, in case you didn't know, is pulled
behind a car. I'd like to see YOU pull a big mobile behind you car down
the road, (well, on second thought.....)!!!. Your intelligence is sure
showing in your pictures. End of lesson two.
all the pictures of the beautiful, and lovely landscaped mobiles?
Are they beyond your UNFOCUSED LENS of life? You will not be remembered
for where you lived, or how many square feet you had in your home, or
how big your bank account was. That is not what life is about, (but
what would you know about that)!!!! How silly of me!!!! You stated,
if I recall, that you live in a TRAILER. Too bad you couldn't upgrade
yourself to a MOBILE. The weather, ( NATURE ), must play hell on you
sometimes in your trailer, seeing as they are only a seasonal form of
housing, such as camping. Oh well, maybe you could sell your pictures
to a moron and move up in the world. Maybe someday you'll be living
in the lap of luxury, in your new MOBILE. Keep it neat now, because
some ass might be out there sneeking a picture of it!!!!!! End of lesson
three. HAVE A NICE DAY.
Rorie: It isn't God who hates mobile homes, it is the
people who can afford better than a home on wheels. Imagine, if the
people who are in the "have" catagory in this country, were
more tolerant and understanding of those who are in the "have
not" catagory, chose to give credit to families for trying to
provide affordable housing, rather than show such a lack of compassion.
No one chooses for bad things to take place in their lives, that puts
our lives on a different course, we make the best we can out of our
lives and hope for compassion and understanding. God is not the destructive
forces that move on this planet, He is the compassion that flows after
the destruction. I think the real issue is that whatever dwelling
we have, we should take pride in it and take care of the upkeep of
it. This goes to all the "Slum Lords" out there too,
who take the rent from the poor but fail to make sure the poor are
living in humane conditions. Thank you God for Habitat for Humanity,
wish more people were involved.
Mobile Homes are mad to sell not to live in|
- Ruby Werdehausen:...God loves
everything, except evil. Tornados, floods, any disaster are evil,
therefore they are the works of Satan. I would be very careful stating
what God hates, he just may show you...|
- Dirk Woods: Your article is
more hilarious than an unsupervised toddler burning a "double-wide"
to the ground after finding his drunken mother's Newports and Zippo.|
While you do offer some interesting perspectives on mobile homes floating
down rivers I would also like to ask you to thank God that you obviously
can afford to live somewhere else but a mobile home.|
Really enjoyed your article on Mobile Homes-- God's pimple of delight
for the landscape. (You didn't discuss the added value of recycling
your M- home.... along with your crushed six cans of Dr pepper.)|
- Dallas: Terrific commentary
on why God hates Mobile Homes! I laughed till I cried.|
- Raymond D West: go to hell|
- Greg: Mobile Homes have not
been built since 1976!! H.U.D. (Housing of Urban Development) adapted
and developed stict building code for manufactured housing at that
time. You obviously are BLIND and STUPID!! Over 40% of the housing
in the US today is manufatured in a controlled enviorment, and delivered
to site location by way of Trucking. I have been in the manufatured
housing business since 1978 and it has provided me and myt family
with a GREAT way of life. I am proud to be associated with the business!
I lived in Manufatured housing for 10 years from Midland/Odessa to
Santa Fe New Mexico. Do you think that everyone can afford a SITE
built home? Do you think that these articles you read do not show
multi million dollar homes, malls and business flattened by Hurricanes,
GET A LIFE!!
I found your thesis on GOD's disposition on mobile homes to be rather
funny. I have lived in a mobile home all my life (28 years) and have
not had a single run in with GOD's wrath. I was quite amused, however,
when a tornado ripped down a road a quarter mile from my portable
domicile, bypassed a non-stationary habitat community and trashed
a large number of condominiums. The best part though, is that this
particular road has a history of tornadic activity. The meek shall
inherit the earth. So I guess that means that it will either be those
of us in nomadic housing, or cockroaches.
- Dean of Students [firstname.lastname@example.org]:
I own a beautiful Mobile Home in North Carolina. There is one thing
which angers me. In my experience, the people who generate their negativity
against a mobile home are always those who own nothing. Some of them
pay up to $900.00 a month for rent and have no tax write-off, while
my mobile home payment is $250.00 per month (2 bedrooms and two full
bathrooms). My home will soon be paid for. Until these people own
something, I think they should just shut their stupid mouth. At least,
I can take my mortage as a tax write-off. Some people are so insensitive.
All criticizer of mobile homes should think before speaking. Thank
you very much.

- lchappell: I'm in total agreement
with your mentality. My only disagreement with pay diving boards on
the bridge is why give this fare to nimrods of the Golden Gate Bridge
District? I say give 'em a break and let them jump for free! I'm tired
of all these bleeding heart liberals and their so-called "feelings!"
You want feelings buddy? Feel this! And while we're at it I think
it should be totally legal to gun down homeless people who hit you
up by shaking a can with two pennies in your face! You want my spare
change? None of my change is spare. It's all going to good use. And
hey...you slow walking fat people..GET OVER on one side of the sidewalk
and let me by! Stop gobbling so many Whoppers so there's enough room
on the sidewalk for everybody! And if you don't know what the hell
you want to eat by the time you get to the register GET THE HELL out
of the store! I have WAY more important things to do than wait for
your dumb ass to come to a simple decision!
The rest of you are cool though...
Right on on all counts with your GGBridge call.. Barrier yes, suicide
system no. Cowan, the guy who went across two lanes in June goes to
court on Tuesday.. Watch the debate resurface then.
Sharks are Circling
23, 2004 Lady Sidhe:
good news/bad news in response to this:
good news is that a male friend of mine won primary custody of his
son, and the mother, who refused to keep a job, was ordered to pay
child support. The bad news is, she hasn't paid in....how long?
So yeah, it's not only deadbeat dads who need to be convinced to
pay up on behalf of their children.
husband is also in the pickle you describe. He is being forced to
pay child support for a child he has never (aside from the blood
test) seen, and will never see, as the child's mother has moved
out of the country. This woman was not his wife, incidentally, and
she refuses to work at all. Apparantly she makes her money by cheating
on her current husband and then collecting money for the children.
Because she refused to work, and was on public assistance, the state
she was from made my husband pay back every cent she'd gotten from
them, PLUS back child-support for the years (5 years) that he didn't
even know this child existed (her husband divorced her when he found
she'd cheated, she went on welfare, and didn't contact my husband
until the welfare ran out and the child was five). Now half--HALF--of
my husband's paycheck goes to this woman who REFUSES to work at
all. And though he will never see this child, who is now 12, he
will be paying until the child is at least 18 and probably until
That being said, I will also say that I understand why the courts
usually award custody to the mother, except in cases where she is
unfit. It's usually the mother who is the primary caregiver in the
family, insofar as things like feeding, bathing, changing, watching,
etc. Daddies play with the kids, and are often the disciplinarians,
because that's what daddies do. But most of them leave the 3am feedings
and diaper changes to mommy. As a result, children are often more
attached to their mothers, and vice-versa.
not to say that the children should be deprived of one parent in
favor of another, but more of a statement of understanding.
well, that's my 2 cents' worth...
Look Now, But You're Being Monitored
Spray or a Gun?
23, 2004 Lady Sidhe:
too cruel, you say? Too barbaric perhaps? Maybe so, but is the current
state of affairs acceptable or functional? I say 'No, it's not.'
Our society has become so 'civilized', so 'concerned' that we've
sacrificed our civilization to the animals and social predators.
We've become so concerned about what a bad upbringing the poor devils
may have had, contributing to their anti-social behavior, we've
lost sight of the fact that they behave like animals. Worse, in
fact than any of the animal kingdom if you stop and think about
it. Animals only kill for food or survival. You don't see rape,
murder or mayhem among the 'lower' animals on this planet, only
among Homo Sapiens."
with you completely. I think that's a great idea, and I'd be one
of the first to buy a ticket, EVERY week. Now that's a dollar well-spent.
your frustration with the whole "poor baby, his mother looked
at him wrong when he was three, that's why he's a multiple murderer"
mindset...personally, I think that while they're waiting to be executed,
they should take the place of lab animals. Make them earn their
keep instead of taking it out of MY pocket....
- Joe: I have a solution
that you may have overlooked, and may even be more palatable to
those "in charge". Rather than have that lottery and make
a game of it, take all the "lifers" and all the "Dead
Men" and put them in a SuperMax, lock it down tight and pull
out all the civilians. Once all the law abiding citizens are clear,
flood the air vents with Serin or Mustard Gas or something. Send
in a Haz Mat clean up team, cremate the garbage and give the place
a new paint job. Youíre damn right there will probably be some collateral
damage, but you let that serial rapist in the living room of any
of those liberals that think that those animals should have the
protection of the same society that they abandoned by committing
their crime, and letís see if they change their tune as well as
their lyrics. I didn't hear any protests when the US bombed Baghdad
over the price of gasoline, why is this such a difficult concept?
It is no different than shooting a coyote for attacking the livestock.
I guarantee that if this was done, there would be fewer volunteers
next time. And when it fills up again, repeat the process. I figure
a "Life without parole" sentence should be a very short
one, and a death penalty should be enforced. I lived in Texas for
20 years and I firmly believe in the death penalty. I just think
that it should not be a 45-50 year sentence, then a lethal injection.
This is a war on crime, and it is starting to look like Viet Nam.
Too many rules for the good guys and the law abiding citizens. I
say "Kill them all and let God sort them out!"
- DadieWags: When does it begin??
Those are my exact feelings. My wife does not agree, but hell, she
doesn't agree with me on anything!
I would be honored to be the first "winner"
Put me on the list, I would be one of those that would gladly do
it without the "incentive"
Give it all to the victims' family.
I'm sure you wrote it as a "tounge-in- cheek" article,
but I'm not responding in kind.
