The Homes of Jimmy Carter

I actually think Jimmy Carter has been a pretty good ex-president. Habit for Humanity is a good cause. I once gave them twenty dollars, and received a hundred pieces of mail asking for more. Well, that’s not a very effective use of funds.

So the premise is still noble, so how could it be more effective? The houses were pretty much cookie cutter houses. One much like the other, designed for simplicity. I would have preferred homes with more expression and individuality. I am most impressed with the home of George W Bush. It’s a simple model of expressive individuality.

During an era of American Greatness, the Sears Home ruled. There were many styles of homes available in a catalogue, order the home and receive everything you need to build it. Nowadays we have Home Depot. They have everything you need to build a home. The problem is there are no plans. My thoughts are Home Depot makes more money selling the materials to make mistakes than they would selling complete kits.

Well that’s not a very effective use of funds. Or materials.
