Obama's Social Justice of Housing Model to Follow

Kenneth Robinson has finally been kicked out of the $340,000 home that he had lived in since June for $16.

Robinson, 51, lived on Waterford Drive in Flower Mound, Texas, but he did not own or rent the home he claimed he had a right to live in. After the owner abandoned the property, which had been in foreclosure for over a year, and the mortgage company reportedly went out of business, he submitted a $16 filing fee at the local courthouse, claiming the law of "adverse possession" gave him the right to occupy the home.

However, a judge in Denton County ruled Monday that the current lienholder, Bank of America, can force Robinson out.

Robinson had became a local celebrity of sorts, writing an eBook and creating a website, http://16dollarhouse.com, about the home in which he lived for about eight months. On his site, he states, "I am successful because I can see it no other way."

After the judge's decision, he told the Associated Press that he had moved out, ending what he called a "huge learning experience." Prosecutors are cracking down on others hoping to emulate Robinson.

We laugh...well, maybe some do. This is Obama's model to follow. Our taxes will set up filing fees and the homeless, Al Queda, and others will be living next door to us. This is "Social Justice", aka, communism. I predict even a dept will be set up to track these folks so they can be found and allowed to be driven to the polls to vote, too.

One man’s justice is another man’s revenge. Now that the idea of ‘income inequality’ (or one’s property makes another poor) is mainstream, Look out!

I read a recent article where a realestate manager was looking forward to the Obama administrations legislation soon that will allow them to rent forclosures. Here is how I and many see it, section 8 dependents will be moving from the projects and low income housing to rented forclosures only they will not be paying the rent we the tax payers will. This is planned, it’s slo and behind the curtain, it’s deliberate

We often say that 0bungles has no real world experience but in the housing industry he actually does.

Obama's "community organizing" left Chicago neighborhoods in ruins.

Grim proving ground for Obama's housing policy

"About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition."
