What happened to "who," "what," "when," (exact) "where," and "how?"
Am I asking too much?
Mar 6th 2013 1:26PM These photos of once magnificent vintage architectural monuments are recording the end-results of national socialism in the US. States & City governments have been bribed with loans and grants by the US Federal government to regulate their local populations by federal standards. State & City governments burgeoned without reason, raising taxes to levels that local people, employed, retired, or unemployed, could not meet. Tax liens were filed, the homeowners (tax payers) were evicted, & the State & City governments were responsible to resell the homes (to recoup their tax losses.
If the homes were still financed, the lender had a similar responsibility to
resell the property for the same reason.
All of these re-sellers became greedy, using the multi-list (MLS caretel) price, instead of negotiating a sales price, however low, to pay the tax liens off, move new owners into the property, and continue the payment of reasonable taxes to the State & local governments & title holding lenders.
Consequently, the whole financial system collapsed, and many were made homeless, all because of not negotiating on the price of resale on a home!
Employers will not locate their businesses in such a financial malstrum, so there were not any jobs, and existing employers had too few customers remaining, so they moved away.
All of this is a result of national socialism, instead of market driven capitalism in the USA.
Wake up America! let's become capitalists again, so this does not happen.
Jun 30th 2012 11:39PM I think the home is beautiful and tasteful. I'd love to live in it.
But, the plastic will oxidize, over time, fading in color and cracking.
It will, eventually, become brittel and crack.
I know of no way to prevent this.
Jun 6th 2012 9:12PM Just bring the display inside, and send a letter to the property manager and homeowner's association, telling them that, per their request, the display is no longer on the balcony.
Unless you are rich and bored (and love litigation!), or don't mind being evicted and homeless, it's more trouble thatn it's worth to argue the pricipals behind this sad request.

Apr 16th 2012 7:57PM "Frankly, there is something else going on," Lopez's lawyer said, "Frankly, there is something else going on," Lopez's lawyer David Semanchik told the Asbury Park Press. "She is a single mom, she has this fiance living with her. I think she is in over her head and she can't afford the rent."
So, like a good public servant, instead of advisng his client, Mr. Lopez, that the contract should be rescinded for "impossiblility" to perform by the tenant,lawyer David Semanchik is suing the lessee for a judgement which is as impossible to pay as the rent. That way, at least lawyer David Semanchik makes money, and Lopez gets another business expense.
Mar 18th 2012 12:29PM Quick! Burn down the foliage, erect a housing development, shopping center, and a tourist bureau, and don't forget a six lane highway and gas stations.
Jan 5th 2012 3:25PM The Federal government should offer property tax deductions for housing the homeless in unoccupied properties that are privately owned, including the costs of maintenance, security, necessary improvements for reasonable accommodation, water, power, insurance and state property taxes on the concerned property.
The Federal government should offer similar unoccupied Federal properties to the the homeless, as well, since it is unconstitutional for the US, State, County, Local, etc. government to operate a business, an interest in a business, rent a house, apartment, condo, etc.
Similar arrangements could be made with insolvent business start ups.
Nov 14th 2011 1:37PM Real estate is trumped up to be a "hedge against inflation" when its appreciation is due to the devaluation of the dollar due to inflation. 81% of the US dollar's inflationary devaluation is due to the false increases in real estate net worth.
Dishonest business practices also enhance the price of real estate. The US has been rebuilt 39 times, if you look at the history of real estate revenues.
Real estate is, in truth, a consumable which wastes (depreciates) over time.
Tear down the old, and build the new. What kind of sense does that make?
Oct 5th 2011 10:10AM Our home has been the subject of two similar unfounded police "no knock" raids, and we continue to be hounded by the police with traffic tickets, etc. The US Supreme Court has held that an unauthorized entry and search of a civilian American home by government personnel is remedied by exclusion (disregard for) any evidence of any wrong found within the house during the illegal search, including housing code and animal code violations. The residents of the home may sue the City of Chicago, and Rahm Emmanuel, as mayor, for the violation of their 4th Amendment Right to privacy. Sock it to 'em!
