More from the elusive (oh, how I wish) Homo Sheeple

This so fit in with the two hours I spent in court yesterday listening to a endless parade of moochers explaining why they shouldn't pay for rent or utilities, that the landlord should. Or, that they had applied for "benefits" and then berating the system because it was either taking to long or blaming the government for denying them and not paying for their rent. They were all asking to stay for free at the landlords expense many claiming that they were entitled to, and amazed that they were being denied.
Like other business sectors are large chunk are small landlords. People renting out part of their homes, for example part of a multifamily that they live in. Small apartment buildings bought as investments. etc. When a small landlord has tenants in default it can easily mean they lose the building, or in some cases their actual home.
Those looters can destroy producers, and do so.
Always curious, I was told that the number of eviction cases in Tucson had nearly doubled in the last six months. It was easy to see that the county staff had doubled and except for one new gal (her third day) have always been busy and competent. I felt sorry for the new gal, because it really was much busier than it was 6 months ago. If this is a national trend I hate to contemplate the economic implications.
Make a really easy one that you give to everyone. Many college graduates are utterly ignorant about basic civics.
Fixed that for you.
