Mass. Tenant...yours? (by Barbara Cardwell [VA]) Posted on: Apr 11, 2021 7:08 AM

I was in Massachusetts yesterday and saw several signs in windows saying something to the effect of "squatters against supremacist landlords". Apparently amongst some squatting in someones property is a badge of honor to be bragged about. It was all I can do not to cover their sign with my own that said "Dead beats against someone trying to support their family".

I thought of you guys up north. Anyone here having to tolerate that blatant attitude on their units?

It's a race to the bottom.

Watch out for H.R. 1847 which would eventually transfer all privately owned property to gov't owned property. I believe it passed in the House but I could be mistaken.

They want a wealth tax which is a property tax on everything and when it's not paid the items will be confiscated. Also I suspect the inheritance tax will zoom to the point where it just isn't feasible to leave anything to anyone. And all the people doing this will still be in their mansions. Unless all the states get together and make a case for ousting them. This country was designed to be what it is now and receive all the people who want to live the way we do. It's like a steam valve. They should not mess with it. --108.24.xx.xx

Fortunately neither myself or any of my close LL associates haven't experience this yet. Unfortunately it's becoming more & more common to see here in MA.

Here if governments really care about homeless people they should funding the federation of homeowners where one tenant told me they getting half million a year. Move in some people into the houses that the chairs then let them live rent free with free utilities then see if the reactionaries try to evict the squatters. If governments stop funding those nutcases then would have to get a real job instead of sitting around in a office with a laptop. How is it that 0.01 per cent of population who do not know there ramshackles from hole in the ground get attention when no one checks them out on the houses they own. During the Covid 19 crisis the hate really came out where that was there all the way long. If there is universal medical care then where are governments going to the funds to build non profit rental housing. If view some videos about TCHC housing then that is tenants nightmare. If the extreme left wing tenancy advocate groups think that slums is a model for tenants then move into the TCHC rental units. In the province of Ontario we had for one term the Socialist Democratic government where they wanted bankrupt private sector rental housing providers where there were punitive measures for major renovations where one 20,000 workers went home as there penalties for energy conservation. Example if rental housing provider installed high efficiency gas boilers then a tenant could apply for rent reduction under rent control to reduce rent where building owners stopped all the work. Later on more jobs were lost. Today people still remember the Socialist Democratic government where now the progressive Conservatives are in power with a majority where legislation is passed without the need of the other left wing leaning parties. It is like going to a lunatic place to get advise on economic and housing policies where everyone knows that socialism does not work.

Barbara, do NOT use your real name when posting. You are likely to be put on someone's watchlist!
