How many lies this time?
When a person starts thinking about housing, one finds out that there’s a starting point and then you dive in. First you think that getting existing housing online is pretty easy; the cleanup and renovations look pretty easy and the place you’re looking at should be up and running in a month or two. Whoa. Get someone who knows what to look for and see what’s hidden in the mess you’re looking at because the more you look, the more things you’ll find that need work and the more the costs may pile up. So time for an estimator and a project manager so things are done in the sequence they need to happen so that you don’t end up spending even more money to deal with whatever needs done later on when you have more money. So yeah, it may be inexpensive to some, but more money than you may have on hand.
So we did Proposition 1 and a whole lot of issues came up with even more misrepresentations. There’s 481 homeless children and adults in the county, not 189. Proposition 1 would’ve cost $.36 per 1,000 assessed value, not $1.36 as was spread by one person and around $50-150/yr., not $750/year as spread by another unreliable source with a hysterical, naysaying agenda. If I was managing housing, I would use a two-tiered system with one tier being for those who may make a mess and break stuff, and another tier for those who won’t be as likely to do major disturbances, major property damage, and maybe steal stuff on the way out. Usually if you deal fairly, responsiblly, reasonably, and humanely with people, they will do their best to do you the same remembering how nasty it is to try and live in this rainy cold climate without shelter. Try not to steal their possessions out of their storage units if they are leaving anyways and don’t lie about them behind their backs-it just ain’t fair to do so.
So where do we get the money? Good question. Herr Trump just took $54 bil. from the domestic budget and put it into the stupid oil war crime budget. Maybe that should’ve stayed where it was if you don’t want the home front situation to get even worse than it already is. Is there a way to de-escalate the situations we’re in in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen? Yes, if the aggressors in the situations stopped bombing women, children and essential civilian support infrastructure in a calculated criminal mass murdering eliminationist strategy. It pisses people off when you attack, humiliate, ill, kill, and murder needlessly based on wrong hysterical information. And now the bankers and the businesspeople are boosting the value of their businesses by doing stock buybacks, enriching themselves but not creating employment or anything else in any new sectors so forget about crucial infrastructure investments. You find they’re pretty bratty and immature about how they deal with situations and people-they want a guaranteed return on investment and the worst of them will just sit there and let people die in droves unless they get what they want. You can only take for so long without investing before things start going really wrong-you gotta give back sometimes, not just keep on ripping, looting, and running.
And what to do about the Wall Street mess that’s getting ready to collapse a’ la 2008 again? Get your money out of the big banks because they will pay themselves and their friends with the ill-conceived derivatives liabilities before they pay you what you have coming. Better to hold a position than taking a big risk that doesn’t pay off in the end, huh. So let’s start on our county housing adventure by making use of existing housing before planning out and taking on new construction, which may still be necessary if everyone is to get adequate shelter in order to regrow their lives in a new direction. So lets do this; lets keep the banking local/regional and transparent so that if a person in a position of power is making big mistakes, we catch it before it’s too late to do anything about it. And that’s why I support the creation of a statewide public bank-one that works for us and keeps the money in the community as much as possible.
There’s always a lot of talk about taxes going up and how we can’t pay any more than we are already paying. And its true, because the money goes up, out, right, and stupid and we don’t get the secondary economic multiplier effects locally-jobs, wages, and tax revenues for creating more jobs and businesses. The money stays offshore once it leaves and they usually want your left leg before they will bring it back home too. It takes a hard, savvy negotiator to deal with them if a community wants to even hold its ground against their onslaught of demands. So don’t do anything impulsive or poorly thought out before signing on the dotted line. So we focus on diversifying into undeveloped local potentials before just letting them come in and rip things up again. We want people who want to commit to the area and it’s future, not just rip, run and leave a mess behind when they go, as has happened so many times in the past. So do you see now how crucial adequate housing is to saving lives and growing up a viable sustainable community? And with a good supply of housing, the prices should be lower than if certain people have a housing shortage they can game to their benefit and our loss.
Then you create a housing holding trust so there’s another layer of legal protection when the lying banking criminals come to steal your home with the robots-signing garbage. Another judge another hearing board another layer of crap for them to go through before they do the criminal deed of stealing your house. If a group of homeowners and renters get together, they then have to deal with another huge amount of people and legal crap before they can steal your homes that time.
