Monasteries.

Yes, I'm serious. I think the US will go back to that model after their next great depression and Civil War (coming soon to a theatre near you).

Three.

Or there were three in there (the room with one bed) when I left on Tuesday morning. Yet, the third bedroom which has two single beds was empty.

Go figure.

Huh

Is there any particular reason you post a lot of comments in a sort of lightweight negro patois? It's somewhat irritating to read.

Huh

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

I'm wondering if Fred has any intention of actually engaging in this thread he started, otherwise I'll move it from this section.

Fair comment. Inter-human transactions are, in fact, rarely financial.

However, there is no specific tariff (financial or otherwise) for living in the second bedroom... so my reply stands, prima facie, m'lud.

The homeless problem in the US is much more closely related to addiction and mental health than the cost of rent. In fact kids being kick out for being gay/trans is a higher cause of homelessness than the price of rent.

That being said a higher percentage of income goes towards rent/food than ever before in American history. I think that has far more to do with stagnant wages than people renting places to live to others.
Er, who.s talking about dee-fense?

I'm not following. As far as rents are concerned, the market will only bear what it can bear...If you don't have enough places to rent, the rent goes up, if there are too many available the rent goes down...

I'm not seeing where this directly causes homelessness. I know some are tossed out of their apartments, but in our area there's protections against no fault evictions.
What is rent?

So no you can't answer an honest question. Good to know.

Where I live the landlord has very little rights. All the rights belong to the tenant. You can't even evict them for non payment.
