Mar 20th 2013 4:49PM Ever since the housing crisis squatting has become pretty common. Squatters take over a house and if they can prove that the house was abandoned, that they've made improvements and that they've been there for a certain length of time, they can try to claim 'squatter's rights' under the law. However, it isn't as easy as they think but while they pursue it, the legal owner of the property could be in for a lengthy headache.
Feb 10th 2013 8:24AM Bottom line--we live in a debt-driven society. As long as one has to supplement their income by the use of credit cards, lines of credit, mortgages and other financing to have certain things tentatively in their possession, they'll never truly own anything until they've paid for it several times over--it's designed that way. Borrowers will always be slaves to lenders.
Jun 28th 2012 8:07PM It is a travesty that these poor people are experiencing this. Maybe this will lead to regulatory actions if they fight it.
Sorry to say, many people are lured by the promises of HOA to provide certain protections and services not knowing just how much they set themselves up to be victimized. It never made sense to me that people would take out mortgages on property that isn't freeheld. In other words, you're paying the mortgage, paying people to tell you what you can do and keeping someone else's name on your deed. All because they promised to cut the grass.
Why give the highschool hall monitor that you hated that kind of power--power to dictate your behavior, harass you and then punk you--Don't we get enough of that from government already?
Feb 14th 2011 6:41PM At least the grammys are trying to regain their credibility. Let People's Choice and the American Music Awards be for the flavor of the month. The Grammy's are decided by voting musicians not groupies. Congratulations Esperanza!
Jan 28th 2011 8:35PM It's business. Why should they have to invest in training someone, UI and other expenses, and then replace them in less than six months with someone else that has to be trained. Might as well hire a contractor with the option of permanent hire and pay no benefits at all.
Jan 17th 2011 11:42AM How do they know to disappear about an hour before they're to go to the vet??
Jan 12th 2011 3:36PM About the woman with the kitchen aid oven. I believe there's been a law on the books for decades requiring manufacturers of electronics to support product including parts for seven years. If the parts aren't available they have to do something to remedy the situation--But it wouldn't be surpising to find that they've circumvented this.

Dec 15th 2010 2:09PM I'd bet that skin-tight red leather jeans with matching jacket and red snake skin boots would be less conspicuous
