Ad-hoc Socialism

Instead of having the great renter eviction starting at the end of July, the governor of my state (and I'm sure it will be rolled out nationwide) has said that renters cannot be evicted until October. So, he gonna let them free-load an extra 3 months. Therefore, landlords go 6 months without income. Now, the rent is not forgiven, but everyone knows it is uncollectible. Most rental properties have a mortgage. I wonder how many of them ain't getting paid.

I wonder if he will just extend the moratorium again. What could possibly go wrong?

De facto property seizure. It's the new normal.

If the Covid is a societal problem and millions of renters lose jobs because of it, than millions getting evicted is a societal problem as well. Either EVERYONE has to accept losses or everyone accept that the new normal is print baby print.

My daughter married into a family that owns a family REIT. 6,000 rental units (it may be more because I don't think they've listed their newest acquisition yet) and over 1,000,000 square feet of commercial space. I havent heard how this is affecting them yet.

Just wait until flu season begins. The flu can be fatal to children. Opening the economy = killing kids as well as oldsters. The lockdown must be permanent!

Ugh... I hate this shit. My nurse friend had a kid die from a bacterial infection at the age of 3 about 6 years ago. You know what she wants? Again she's a nurse dealing with Covid patients. She wants schools fully open and things back to normal.

Of all people you'd think she wants to keep things closed. This is pure propaganda at this point when every medical professional I know says it's not a big deal.

Of course the international mania is dripping with hypocrisy and illogic. Fauci and the affirmative action Surgeon General issue no guidelines on protecting the elderly with co-morbidities, especially for those in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The Surgeon General chides blacks for smoking when the rates are no worse that whites, yet makes no mention of the extraordinary black female obesity contagion. And schools are on lock-down for a virus that is rarely fatal to kids but yet schools have been open for a virus that is fatal to kids.

The so called Second Wave is the Summer Flu, and Summer colds.

They aren't bullshitting anybody.

1) What state?
2) And under what legal authority does the Governor claim to have this power therefrom?

No, there is not 'societal problem'. Or rather, not EVERYONE has to accept losses.

Government has to do three things in order to stay in biz. In this order, too:

1) Be able to protect itself. (mostly from other governments but also uprisings)
2) Be able to protect the property of its 'citizens'. (just like all protection rackets must do)
3) Be able to protect the lives of its 'citizens'.

Note how Property comes before Lives?

Communist & banana republic regimes don't do well nor last long when they don't protect property rights, for example.

Arizona.

Same power as all the other governors that have issued these moratoriums. Same as the Federal government mandating no evictions from Federal properties. Laws do not matter.

It's not fatal to kids at all. You don't need to say rare. There's not one legitimate case I've read about where there were zero underlying issues. Basically the kid died of Covid and that was it. It hasn't and won't kill kids. There is zero evidence in almost the entire god damn world of 7B+ people. Even kids with rare diseases and complications. They're strong enough to survive it.

I believe you and I agree. This is what I am saying...the government has no right to shut anyone's job down. If they do by claiming it is a societal problem, then those people must be made whole OR everyone has to accept a loss. But Nooooooooooooooooooo, the government would NEVER let banks and big corporations take a loss, RIGHT?!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I'm saying the little people must be made whole also.

What could possibly go wrong

It's politically incorrect to use such phraseology nowadays. But, in the 1977 NYC blackout some referred to it as "Jewish Lightning".

We stopped being a nation of laws a while ago. Governors forced businesses to close, forced schools to close, forced people to stay in their homes except for essentials, closed places of worship and basically caved to a media sponsored hysteria. This drove about 20 million job losses. I had my rant against Trump back in March for allowing this madness to start.

You can't fight it. The court system is basically closed. Can't have 12 jurors in close proximity contagion you know, and the Republicans in Congress are trying to pass immunity from Covid related lawsuits. You can just bet the States will get the protection as well as businesses.

And I say that the former statue of Columbus that sat at the base of Coit Tower in SF be replace by a giant phallus.

Oh wait...that could happen! Sorry, bad analogy. Forget what I just said.
