How are we going to house them? Take a look at rents in all of this area. There are a good manyRead More people on Social Security or who are working that can't afford both rent and food. They fall thru the cracks when it comes to any kind of help. Rent control would help, but not eliminate the problem.

Which, of all the parties, has a DEMONSTRABLE RECORD of efforts to raise the minimum wage, to sayRead More nothing of efforts to improve the economy? The ONLY reason more hasn't been done, and we ~all~ know this, is the obstructionist Republicans and their extremist teabagging thugs. PLEASE, people.... don't assume the presidential election is the only election that matters. Getting the right people into the Senate and the House means having your voices heard!

As a landlord for 30 plus years I can tell you that California has many protections for tenants.Read More One that struck fear into the hearts of any slumlords (which I was not!) was the "repair and deduct" law. Any item that is considered a necessary component of the rental can be repaired by the tenant and deducted from the rent. That would include non-working toilets, ovens, even air conditioners and heaters. Hard to repair your own water main but I have known of cases where the tenants moved into hotels and deducted that cost from their rent. All of this could eventually be litigated via small claims court and I guarantee you no judge would rule in favor of a landlord whose tenants had been without running water for this long. So, go get a room and deduct the cost from your rent.
Jerry July 22, 2014 at 07:30 am
Who is the irresponsible, uncaring owners if this property...??? It is their responsible to provideRead More the water to tenants and if not they have to provide another alternative. Totally agree with checking into hotel and removing the cost from your rent. Check your lease and check the laws. You have rights...!!!

I am impressed by the number of people I know personally who have been well employed in recentRead More months. By well employed I mean with good paying jobs. A few others with lesser skills found jobs with those all important bennies. Very encouraging!

How ridiculous. That's like arresting Amtrak for all of the times the cops pick up peopleRead More transporting marijuana in big suitcases in their baggage cars (it happens frequently---you'd be surprised). Amtrak has nothing to do with that----they're just transporting baggage. Same thing here---FedEx is just transporting a package; they have no clue what its contents are.

The amendments the House is passing to not penalize banks who do business with legal medical andRead More recreational pot dispensaries, and also to prohibit the DEA from interfering with state marijuana laws is all really good news! This is a step in the right direction allowing the people of their home state to be a real voice in what kind of society they wish to live in. Now that is real freedom! We'll have to see how the Senate handles it.

@Wire I think that it's very possible for the present enthusiastic sentiment concerning housingRead More prices to change and for housing prices to go down some as a result. But I don't think that this is a bubble like the one that burst around 2008-2008. Back then, there was a lot of funny money bidding up housing prices, with ridiculous loans being given out to everyone. This time, people are using real money, and loans are being closely scrutinized by the banks.
libertus_rebelium July 19, 2014 at 11:37 am
Sammy, it is absolutely a bubble. Incomes and job growth do not support the home prices which meansRead More that unless everyone gets a raise in the next six months (and a 20% raise at that) then this market is not sustainable. Chinese investors paying in cash is what drove the market to the absurd levels it is now in. They made their money and now they are pulling out, leaving the working joes with a lot of debt that they may not be able to reconcile. Prices have to go down unless the lab wants to hire 10,000 people and pay them enough to afford a 2 bedroom that costs half a million dollars. Good for all those vultures, I guess, who got to dump their property at obscene prices to their neighbors.
Mike July 19, 2014 at 04:36 pm
Most countries around the world require citizenship or Resident Alien status in order to purchaseRead More residential real estate. Why does our country allow foreign investors to come here to buy houses and drive up prices for everyone?

Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)
