It's even less fun for renters to end up homeless. Do you think property owners owe people a place to stay? Like, if I own a duplex and live in one unit and rent out the other, do I not get to set the price and conditions for the person I'm renting to? There are those of us who consider a place to ...

Sadly, lot of landlords see it as a business than just giving people housing.


It is a business, and not a very fun one either.

I'm one of the fiction writers here on WP, so feel free to take my advise, or tell me to take a flying leap :lol: . As far as dialogue being flat, just remember, the main purpose of having your characters speak is to convey information in order to move the story along. Once that is accomplished in ...

Monstrous.

A young woman, seeking to find the truth behind a friend's murder, finds herself trapped inside an isolated house with the owner, another woman, while a Sasquatch is outside threatening to get in. She only learns that the real monster is inside with her.
Surprisingly good horror movie.

Thing about taxing the rich - - they're still going to be rich. So what you're saying is, it's not about lifting up the poor, it's about punishing the rich. I mean, I kinda figured as much, but it's still good to get confirmation of the theory. And just how did you come to that conclusion? No, I sa...

We're renters. Sure, you'll neve...

From what I've noticed, when people think they're in danger, they usually are.

My aunt took my cousin to hear him speak in the late 50's, such a cool thing to be able to say. I think MLK righteously lead the 60's civil rights movement and gave some fantastic speeches. He also was a sexual predator or deviant and hypocrite as a pastor. Both things can be true. I seriously thin...

But the small businessmen I've known are mostly pretty right wing, and like to imagine that they're no different from big business. That means their sympathies are with big business, and they see the employee as the enemy, even though they have much more in common with their workers than with the w...

People complain about raising the minimum wage. But prices for goods and services have been raising steadily while wages have stagnated. Something must be done to rectify the growing chasm between the haves and have-nots.

Remembering the man who redeemed America's secular soul.
No, he wasn't perfect. But it was his flaws and virtues that gave him his greatness.

But it is. The fewer people with good paying jobs, the less money businesses will make. But the business community has been focusing on short range gain rather than investing in the economy by paying good wages and providing affordable services. Eventually, when the rest of us are destitute, busine...

landlords should be licensed and subject to license suspension/revocation should they misbehave.

Just how are people supposed to afford a roof over their heads when rent is priced beyond their ability to pay. When the minimum wage skyrocketed where I live, so did my rent. Which forced me to move into a tiny room in a 100 year old bedbug and cockroach ridden hotel. Or is it just the landlords s...

Just how are people supposed to afford a roof over their heads when rent is priced beyond their ability to pay. That's not the role of private industry to figure out, they're just in business to do business, nothing more. Also, is anyone going to even acknowledge that I've said "wealth redistr...
