    If true, I wonder how much money and resources it will take to get rid of InterNACHI?
    From everything I've heard, nobodys worried about nick club.
    They are doing a good job of getting rid of themslves, with out any help from outsiders..

    Hi Dan

    You likely have read that British Columbia has passed legislation licencing home inspectors by Mar 31st. Not surprising the Nachi members in British Columbia were left to fend for themselves, and have been left out of the licencing legislation.
    FAQ for Home Inspector Licensing Regulation

    Q. Why are other associations or authorities such as NACHI not acceptable?
    A. Government consultations determined that acceptable associations and authorities would be those that require a satisfactory level of learning and field training prior to providing home inspections to the public. They also have standards of practice, codes of ethics, insurance requirements and a process to help resolve disputes between their members and consumers.

    Hi Jerry;
    You are right Jerry; about the failure of public education. Those mandates you mentioned, originally came from socialist type educators and members of the NEA for the most part who influenced legislators to make those mandates that tied the hands of serious educators.Discipline went out the window.That is just what happens when
    large controlling organizations pressure elected officials to make laws to benefit themselves. From what I've seen, the home education movement has produced a much better equipped citizen that can think,have character,and deal with reality far above the
    product from the government indoctrination centers. Most businessmen I know seek out
    graduates that have been home schooled. Maybe it is because they are taught by
    loving parents who instill moral values and discipline .After all --You raise hogs but
    train children. And guess who pays for all the government expenses. It might be wise to study what George Washington has to say about child training. If and only if, one might
    want additional help in education, then go to the source ---Psalms and Proverbs. Many
    people have trouble getting past the first two chapters in the KJV.
    Look at what was just posted about British Colombia, More of the exclusionary tactics
    by those who are trying to gain power through laws. It is also happening here in N.H.; I am led to believe there are individuals trying to mandate what they think is best, for everyone to go along with their program and exclude competition.Those in the legal profession are the one's that end up gaining the most. The home inspector pays more and the client pays more . My friend , it does not end when you get what you want, changes will come , and they will not be for the good . Learn from the mistakes of others, for you will not live long enough to make them all youself.

    Many need to start reading books which are not fables or based on fables, that will open one's eyes up to the real world. When that happens REAL education will be able to start. And home schooling will not suffice, as home schooling, for the most part, does not expose those home schooled to the wide variety of real people in the real world.

    I agree. Children can just as easily, or more easily, be indoctrinated in homes and (don't shoot!) churches.

    JP: Change "many" to "all" and we're in agreement.


    And home schooling will not suffice, as home schooling, for the most part, does not expose those home schooled to the wide variety of real people in the real world.
    JP: And did you mention that most people today are stupfyingly unqualified to home school their children? That is of course, if they really want them to become autonomous, contributing members of society.

    I think the majority of parents, their arguments (steeped in wishful thinking) to the contrary notwithstanding, are merely interested in creating little clones through which they can live out the unexperienced parts of lives vicariously.

    And did I mention that we should limit qualifying each household to only one child? And those who do not qualify get none. But, then that's another story.

    One thing is for sure , Home schooled children for the most part learn to deal with adults in the REAL world, and not live in a sand box for the rest of their lives with selfish friends..

    Since some believe ,Holy Scripture is a FABLE, then one does not have to be concerned with God's judgment. How about this fable "Wine is a mocker,strong drink is raging; and
    whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." or "hell and destruction are never full;so the eyes of man are never satisfied." or maybe we forget the school shootings over the last few years. "The rod and reproof give wisdom:but the child left to himself bringeth his mother
    to shame."
    O well, no one should really care what was just said , after all , It must be just fables
    IF you want to believe that way; Your choice.

    As and answer to previous thread topic comments, and "who is going to be --King of the
    Hill--and sit in the executive high chairs when all the competition through merges is
    eliminated . Or maybe one likes the high manipulated fuel prices after Exxon/Mobile
    merged along with the international banksters.

    I'm looking around and hope I don't see Samuel L. Jackson quoting scriptures as in "Pulp Fiction". When he stops preaching, he starts shooting.

    Back to the merger: Is the DH rule in effect.

    I think a merge of ASHI and NAHI would be beneficial to both organizations and respective reorganization of local chapters.

    And our profession.
    All that is left is complete the national certification process, then focus on informing the public there is a difference between an on-line instant, non-verified mail order cert, and a cert from a national recognized certification firm.

    I have it on good authority that this possible merging/unification business has nothing, absolutely nothing, nothing whatsoever to do with any other home inspector association. Nada! Zip! Zilch!

    Why would it? If it happens, and I think it will; it will have nothing to do with what any other association or group is doing.

    Ahh just wishful thinking that maybe some day home inspectors, and HI orgs will be held accountable for claims of certificiations, and advertized qualificiations, opposed to just being able to make up any ABC cert and sell it, buy it, online with out any verificiation if the person buying the cert has completed any training or has claimed experience..

    Hope this helps... Not sure if it's real english, I know what I mean

    I believe it has to be a "super majority" of the membership, 66% or better, for this thing to move along.
