He's clearly doing something right. No one gets to be the richest guy in the world by accident.

I'm in agreement with this assessment. Tesla is a complete shit show, but it doesn't matter.


- Tesla is making industry highest margins per car manufactured (with no EV credits)
- Tesla has unbelievable demand and is sold out for the year - despite spending nothing on advertising and marketing
- Tesla just opened 2 of the largest and most advanced manufacturing facilities on the planet (Austin and Berlin)
- Tesla has virtually no debt

Elon puts Twitter deal on hold. Now he had to know, that EVERYTHING about Twitter's revenue abilities would be a damn lie. They can't be a cash flow positive operation, while chasing off 50% of current and future customers.

Haha - you don't realize that Musk did something.

He demonstrated that Twitter is just a giant fucking con. It's an illusion.

Fake accounts, fake users, fake numbers, fake everything.

People complain that "Trump wasn't able to accomplish anything" - and that's wrong. He did something I would have DIED to do, he demonstrated our intelligence agencies are filled with traitors who shit on the Constitution, that our DOJ is nothing but a bunch of abject criminals, and demonstrated our "parties" are one party - the war party and that when push comes to shove, eliminating elections is acceptable to ALL of them, including the military.

Musk just demonstrated that our media is against the 1st amendment, that propaganda is a priority, that Twitter is not a free speech platform, that many user accounts on Twitter are fake robots, that Twitter is engaged in pushing a political agenda, and that they lie to their users. You think that's nothing?

I believe that they used many forms of cheating.

but there is still a lot of rabid antiMAGAers out there.

Regardless of how people feel about Trump, how can anyone feel good that hundreds of thousands of ballots were trafficked in battleground states? More than enough to negate the votes of legitimate voters who followed the election rules.

Most libs could care less if they win by hook or crook. They don't care one bit what is destroyed as long as they think they're right.

I rented to a gay couple once

Boy did they make a lot of nit-picky calls on things.

Also, at lease renewal time they would always remind me of how much rent they paid in the year and used that as reason why each year they should get something like new appliances or carpet.

Fuck you

Another one was the worst, this black single woman with 2 kids, paid first month. Then stopped paying rent after that, threatening lawsuits for discrimination. I think that eviction was very long since the landlord just didn't know what to do and did dumbest thing by trying to smooth things over via conversation and she just kept on not paying.

Happened in my mom's building. Some 50 something fat Government Employee Black Woman stopped paying after first month, accused all her neighbors including my 70-sometihng mom and her 90-year old Cuban Great Grandmother neighbor - of making noise at 3AM when both are long since passed out. Oh, and the divorced single 50 something old Dentist who works on Travel Contract 3 weeks of every month and isn't even there. She also wanted them not to open the patio/balcony door at 10AM because she "Worked from home and was too loud". This building is Concrete and Steel, and 2 of the 3 apartments have laminated floors with soundproofing, the other has thick carpet.

When she didn't get her way with the association, she started the "I'm gonna sue" shit, and tried to get another (Black) Woman to say the same shit.

Scary fact: Some Senior Housing units in Broward have to have 20% Section 8 units. Naturally, those 20% create 90% of the problems.

Many of them also sneak their adult children with young children into the complex, which is supposed to be 55+ and only 18+ children for OWNERS who are supposed to register them with the Complex, obviously Broward Coward Dems Gov don't care. So you get some 30-year old skank and her OG Brood living with her 50-something parents in a two bedroom (4, 5 people) that is reduced rent from the Broward taxpayer, filling up all the guest parking.

Now that they've inserted a rainbow black female in between reporters and biden, they will use her to imply that all unflattering questions and criticism of biden is racist / sexist / homophobic / whyte supremacist attacks on her.

Woah, I don't think you got the point. Phone geolocation data shows that thousands of people were stuffing ballot boxes.

In battleground states, using ballots trafficked from “non-profits.” Any guess as to whose name was on those ballots for President? And what impact did this have on down ticket and local races as well?

Bottom line, this was the most insecure and fraudulent/fake election in American history.

DOJ under this administration is corrupt. I don't trust the current FBI investigation in Hunter Biden and the "big guy". It is to give them a free pass with a sham investigation. That way they can say the Bidens were exonerated.

How would a tenant ruin a water heater?

They fuck with it. Your average tenant to be honest has no clue about mechanical items in a house/condo/apartment. They just rent and assume they can fuck with stuff and you'll fix it if they break it.

I can't count on any of my digits the amount of morons that heated their apartment with the stove and oven in Chicago. The furnace was 100% working. In all honesty too many women grew up as a child without a father. They can't figure shit out. Tread lightly with this question, but ask if their dad is alive. Male or female. If there's no dad in their life, I'd be cautious. Again, male or female.

I've learned from my own wife, that once the dad passes away or he is MIA, there's a 80-90% chance you end up with a bad tenant. Widowed women are awful when it comes to leading. They need a spouse or at least a dedicated boyfriend. Illegal and I don't hold my license anymore, but don't rent to gays either if you can. There will be drama.

I'd only get back to commercial/industrial real estate in the future. It's a business deal and not emotional for anyone one.

I also have another story as a renter rather than a landlord

I was young and renting an apartment in San Mateo owned by an old crabby Chinese woman in her 80s. If you are reading this, never ever under any circumstances rent from an old Chinese woman in her 80s that’s managing the place herself, what an experience!

One of many stories I have: when I was moving out, she claimed that the bathroom vanity had some scratches that weren’t there (mind you I had been living there two years and took very good care of the place).

She said she wouldn’t give me my security deposit until I repainted the vanity. I weighed my options and not wanting to make a big drawn out legal deal out of it, I took the 3hrs on a Saturday to repaint that fucking vanity.

She also always requested that I be home when handymen were coming over to do various repairs.

Never again.

My next door neighbor in East SJ relocted to Placerville. The East SJ home was vacant for a time. One day, the ex-neighbor's senior citizen dad who lived in Berryessa (a nearby neighborhood of East SJ) approached me to tell me that his son would be renting his house to what he described as a "Model Tenant" (my words, not his).

The tenant was a middle aged single lady. She worked two jobs and also attended the local community college. She would be a good neighbor.

Sure enough he was right, the lady was a good neighbor. Till her adult son, covered in gang tattoos, was released from his incarceration and moved in with his mom.

All kinds of East San Jose gangster types coming over at all hours. To be fair, they didn't make a lot of noise. The homie even invited us over for a backyard BBQ he held with his other homies. My college friend who returned to his native Germany after college, was staying with us at the time. My partner declined to attend the next-door Gangster Fest. My friend joined me. He got to see the Real America, not the packaged tourist version.

Some days after the party, a Pit Bull showed up. It wasn't the kid's dog, or so they said: it belonged to one of the kid's gangster homie pals. The poor dog was chained to a stake.

Next time I saw the owner's dad come over, presumably to collect rent, I told him if that dog hurts anybody in my family, or any of our other neighbors, I am not going to waste my time with your tenant, but I will sue your ass.

Within days the house was for sale. I think that the owner and his local senior citizen dad were afraid of the tenants' son. They would rather sell than confront the gangster homies.

My last horror story was from CommieFornia.

I rented to a "single mom" (yeah, I know) in SoCal. I got tricked by the sob story once, never again (don't care who hates me).

They are so unreliable, needy, and this one in particular never read the lease. Specifically said in the lease that the maximum days a non-lease individual can stay over is 3 days MAX. So of course, this 304 is hooking up with 2-3 different Tyrone's and Chad's and one of them throws their dirty ass boots into my compact/stack-on dryer and who knows what else and just destroys the drive motor so it doesn't rotate anymore when it's on and you start a cycle. On top of that I did a check on the unit 5 months in, and the entire unit, even the outside patio area, smelled like cheap weed.

Every single rent check was extremely late (like 7+ days). No I never enforced any penalties because at the time I still had a bleeding heart and felt bad for her. I got stiffed on the last 2 months rent and never collected. In the designated parking spot, her Chevy Malibu left a gnarly oil spot that I could never get rid of completely.

Overall, 1 out of 10, would not do again.

edit: Also the water heater died during her lease, but not sure that can be attributed to her in particular, but it ended up being a $900 bill for me....
