    American Thinker ^ | 05/11/2018 | Ed Straker
    The great things about liberals is that even though most have never run a business, they all know exactly how businesses should be run.  It's as if all those courses they took at Amherst or Yale on women's studies, art history, and neo-colonialism gave them an intuitive sense for market forces, and exactly how much businesses should pay employees, exactly how much in taxes businesses should pay, and how to run every aspect of their companies. It's hardly surprising, then, to find an exposé in the Washington Post focusing on Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.  Hannity spent millions of dollars to...

Guess told KNWA that he started to sprint toward his son with the hopes of separating him from the two vicious dogs. Its...

    Q13 FOX News ^ | March 24, 2017 | BY HANA KIM
    A lawsuit in Seattle pits some fundamental rights against each other its civil rights that ban discrimination, and property rights that allow owners to decide what to do with their homes and land. The issue is with a new law that requires landlords to rent to tenants on a first come, first served basis. The goal is to make sure all renters are treated equally. But the landlords who are suing say the program is a bureaucratic nightmare and unconstitutional. Critics say its all about the survival of the fastest, but supporters say it levels the playing field for...

It's a nightmare that landlord advocates say is all too common in SanFrancisco, where 64 percent of residents rent. .....According to [Janan]New[executive director of the San Francisco Apartment Association], a combination of confusing rent ordinances and an abundance of...

You said my buddy ought to suck it up, not try to "legally steal" from the landlady, and such. If you're still of the same opinion and don't want...

    A landlord has blocked off his plush 1m home with ten skips to stop his tenants from leaving without paying the 15,000 he claims they owe him. Businessman Simon Everingham says he has been in a constant battle for 3,000-a-month rent since the occupants of his four-bedroom 18th century farmhouse in Markington, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, fell behind with the payments last November. He barricaded the American tenants Dan and Christina Herring in by blocking the drive on Monday and the fight to stop them leaving continued today. They work at the controversial Menwith Hill U.S. spy base nearby but...

    I don't want to be some sort of conspiracy nut, but I paid my rent on 2/29/10. To this day, my landlord has not deposited this check. I will owe another check and pay it today. I've mentioned it to him (three times now) and he says he has to ask "the boss" which is his wife. I can't figure it out; my landlord is an electrician who has not been on a paying gig since May of last year since construction here in S. Utah is nonexistent right now. Last week when I had to call him on a...

    The subject of James Love's precarious health came up one day last winter when his landlord was chatting with Love's wife about a leaky faucet. Barbara Thomas, who rents a home to the couple and their six children in Sleepy Hollow, asked Shira Love what her husband needed to avoid kidney dialysis. Born with sickle cell anemia, he had endured years of excruciating pain and renal failure. Shira Love told Thomas that he desperately needed a kidney but that it was hard to find a match because of his O-positive blood type. "The second Shira said James needed a kidney,...

    Tenant activist-turned-suburban landlord Chris Daly certainly knows a good deal when he sees one. In February, the San Francisco supervisor, who has had his share of battles with developers over the years, scooped up a Fairfield house for $270,000, Solano County documents show. The four-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath house had last been assessed at $514,686.He's now renting out the house, Daly told The Chronicle's Marisa Lagos. Bonus for the supervisor - there's no rent control.Daly went bargain-hunting in Fairfield again in April and landed another four-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home - this one with a pool, on a cul-de-sac - for $275,000....
