So people being subsidized tend to say a lot. System works if you work it. To any landlord I want you to think about you and your family picking up in thirty days with no place to go....the fear and loss of familiarity and home. These aren't hotels...people get attached. While this is just business to you...this is their life. Please think about that and the impact of how you choose to respect or ignore that....and how your interaction can so greatly impact the course of an entire life and the lives they impact...like their kids and marriages.
Ha ha ...yeah I represent people who made mix tapes and had no internet growing up ( with it I think i could have really been a contender I tell ya)..I still marvel at all this information available right here all for me ...yet still fear the Orwellian potential of it all and long for simple times.
It is us...we get rid of monopolies who outsource...it is me and you. We will not just create our own job but for others too. Bring back the butcher, baker , and candlestick maker. Anonymous faceless business owners don't face scrutiny of community they hide behind the mask of their logo ...like landlords they don't have to have scruples because choices are so limited by their design ...forced reliance.
They can also barter skills.
Money is an imaginary construct which rules give tangible weight. It's real in as much that if one doesn't abide...you can starve ( or eat cake).
Razzing ...did it fly past you? Most landlords have their side development crew and employees they make do this. Hard row for an average joe to take on. You get the tenants you deserve? People may be afraid to call you...afraid of evictions maybe other landlords made them afraid they will get blamed ...landlords famous for trumping reasons to steal deposits.
I tire of reading rape misrepresentation cease
we know these practices is a matter of money manipulation which is fluid and best
made up at worst
If you 're talking rent to own it is extremely risky for the buyer...landlord can back out and I would not advise anyone to enter into such arrangements because buyer is locked but landlord not and if I'm remembering on this it works kind of like a balloon payment or some such fucked up deal. Plus why would you sell your meal ticket ? You would give up the equity and investment?
That explains it.
druggies like ISIS should have no rights
Actually under the section 8 program, a tenent can by a house with their section 8 check. I'm more than happy to sell a place to somebody with a government guarenteed check. Its a wiin-win for everybody. Some tenents take advantage of the offer, but a lot more tenents don't because they do not want to be bothered with the responsibility and the maintenance.
Sure. I agree. So why are you giving me a hard time for cleaning out septic tanks for a little extra money? I was under a house the other day crawling through sewer sludge to place a pump to get rid of a pool of the filth from a drain line that broke that the tenent did not tell me about. Meanwhile the tenents were sitting in the living room watching TV, and smoking a dubie.
money is exchanged for goods and services
The reason rents are high is not because us small time landords are greedy, but because it really costs that much to maintain a property in this economy. Most money goes to taxes, to banks in paying mortgages, and maintenance. (Have you been to Loews or Home Depot lately?) And if a tenent decides to trash a place, that is enough to put a landlord under if he doesn't put plenty of money aside for the possibility.
I agree with you about the ugly economic trend in this country, but I assure you it is little of the landlord's doing.
Let us hope so. Getting into real estate is one of the very few ways a little guy can get into the act and achieve something in our capitalist society. Hey, I sorry, but I didn't make the rules. I'm just doing what I have to do to eek out a decent living. I'm not getting rich, and I'm not ripping anybody off. Most my tenents are grateful I'm their landlord (except the one's who don't pay the rent, and they see the bad side of me.) If you don't like it, change the system.
Do I represent Middle class who hasn't had a COLA in 6 years.
Where are the job creators? I will soon need a second job to stay above water.
send the article V crew in ?
We're there not petitions here for redress, of grievances. A 10 percent approval of congress, what sort of mandate is that for a nation, founded on principles of self governance? http://www.salon.com/2015/03/26/jesus_would_hate_you_all_and_you_didnt_build_that_the_truth_about_the_ultra_rich_and_their_new_york_times_apologists/
Thank you Matt ...I have been talking out loud to myself in the chip aisle for years about this...I don't eat them often but when I do I'm not paying 8 bucks a bag seriously what ?!!! I grew up in a time when there was a potato chip factory ...you could go in get a nice bag of chips ...and I'm not that old. Chips were cheap. I can't walk down the aisle without having tourettsian blurts of horror...and usually also because of the pms that induced me to want chips ( doesn't help) chips and chocolate should be free for women. For everyone's safety. But first tax free feminine products ( haven't priced this have you) heh ! Racket! Profiting off of womens' ability to produce life. Tampon Industrial Complex...period! ;-)
drones could be handled by middle schoolers
Also maybe we should start storming the embassies (and before you arrest me nsa) I mean the media outlet arms of the 1 percent. Let's go on air?! Fox news we are coming for you first. We're going to follow you and stalk you like paparazzi. Not a moment of peace. You are our new celebrities. Photogging you from the bushes. Especially u OReilly. Any student Mit occupiers who can rustle us up some camera drones?
Maybe we can start grinding up our elderly into a nice soyent green to be modified with corn syrup and mixed into meat giving it bulk and a pseudo- meatier yet slightly tough and wrinkled texture? The fact is they are doing a corporate tax relief program and they cut these small tax breaks of the working class and poor to pay for it. I can't say I thought the mortgage deduction was fair ...but it paled in comparison to the no business tax loopholes dished out like candy to megalopolies and big business. I might have a fucking aneurysm tonight. I'll be found dead with the forum open in front of me and they will blame Occupy for my death instead if congress. My soul is going to come back and I will haunt some politicians ....I promise. If not does anyone want to go to DC with me? I'm feeling a massive protest coming on!!!
The deeply unpopular congress, whose approval rating hovers around a historic low of 10%, has voted to remove the child tax credit, the earned income tax credit and the mortgage interest deduction from the tax code starting with the 2014 fiscal year. The move is almost assured to solidify the perception of the 113th Congress of the United States as deeply disconnected from the struggles and desires of the populace it is supposed to serve.
The move, long championed by entitlement reform advocates like congressman Paul Ryan R-Wisconsin and Ted Cruz R-Texas, will cut entitlement payouts by a staggering 177 billion dollars. 54.33 billion dollars in savings will be realized from discontinuing the earned income tax credit, which generally pays those making less than 12 thousand dollars yearly large cash tax rebates far in excess of the actual tax they paid. 69.7 billion will be saved from the mortgage interest tax deduction, which critics say primarily favors top income earners. The elimination of the child tax credit, which critics say serves no fair purpose, will result in an additional 54 billion dollar savings.
A heavy burst of lobbying preceded the vote by several free market/libertarian groups, most notably ones funded by Koch Industries. Initial democratic opposition and reluctance to vote in favor of amending the tax code withered in the face of overwhelming support from the majority party, and several industry groups. Many Democratic caucus members fled their own party leader’s stance to vote in favor of the measure with the majority of Republicans, citing their recent defeat in midterm elections as an endorsement by the people of the Republican platform and agenda.
