What has Obama done since being reelected that caused this man to immediately truncate his office and maintenance hours? If "taxes" and "regulations" are the problem, why wouldn't he keep operating at full capacity until a law actually passes?

This guy is a farking child, plain and simple. He's the sort of terrified rube that makes 'conservative' media so lucrative.

Dear GOP, this is why you lost... you hate more than half of Americans, you clamor to secede from the union or default on paying the bills for programs you already voted for every time you don't get your way. You're vindictive, you threaten people with such harsh conditions that they'll self-deport, justify bigger government in the name of religion (but only to intrude on dirty liberal religions that are ok with the gays), fought to increase the payroll tax, and are now fighting to slash social security and medicare so you can keep funding tax cuts for millionaires. You're bitter, angry people who are constantly focused on who you should hate so much that you haven't got the first clue about what the country is looking for in a leader. As a dyed in the wool liberal, I'd like to say good job, keep up the good work.

Then he added, "BTW: If you voted "Democrat" on Nov. 6, please notify me ASAP so I can raise your rent first to help pay for what you asked for."

It's always difficult to tell, but I think this was an attempt by a "conservative" at snark or humor.

It's whiny, childish, petulant and bullying, which makes it a lot like the "jokes" such people make.

Evictions are based on nonpayment of rent or breach of lease.

this looks like the actual letter that was sent out : Link




FTA the letter : "Heretofore, the repair costs are going to be back-billed to the residents depending on what the sewer technician reports as the cause of the problem : feminine hygiene products / towelettes to apartments with nubile females and grease to all."

really?

then there has to be a notice about not letting dogs crap and piss in the hallways?

pretty sure there are bigger problems with this place that rank waaaaaay higher than Obama getting re-elected. sounds like this business titan is shifting the blame for his rank incompetence onto something that has nothing to do with anything.

If it was me, I'd send him a polite letter reminding him of the local landlord/tenant laws about raising rents. I'd also send him a copy of the penal code about extortion. But I'm kind of a biatch that way.

The Casa Adobe Apartments are total rat traps. A haven for Meth Labs and sex offenders, its not like anyone wants to live there, it's usually because they have no other option.

Being A Democrat in the Springs is an interesting experience. It's like the Fox news utopia. Most people I know were sure that Romney was going to win. I relished in their pain when reality hit them.

But he has a point. If you voted against gay marriage, you should not be allowed to be married. If you voted against medicinal marijuana, you're not allowed to take the most effective medication for your condition. If you voted Republican because you want America to fight a given war, you should have to be sent to combat. If you voted Republican in order to bust unions, your retirement/pension should be taken and given to the richest Democrat in your district.

There's real potential in that idea.

I have a real problem with all these business owners that are saying they need to cut hours, lay off employees, and raise prices immediately because of Obamacare. The vast majority of the law, including the business mandate and taxes, don't even go into effect until 2014. How can you possibly need to do those things right now for something that doesn't even go into effect for more than a year from now? Either they're just lying to try bash the law, or they were already planning on doing those things and are simply using it as a means to deflect criticism. "Hey, sorry, I didn't want to cut your hours and and raise prices, but I had to because Obamacare. Blame the president, not me!"

Honestly through, no matter what the quality/level of the apartments is, this will always be an occasional problem. People who live in apartments with dogs tend to be inconsiderate assholes/scum. Doesn't matter if it's low end or high end or what state.

Hate complexes that allow dogs.

I live in one of the poorest counties in NY, where most residents are some flavor of (R), and I take the same precautions. The original reason was the briefings they started doing in the Reserves about not making your vehicle a target for terrorists (yeah yeah, I know, but it was mostly intended for anyone overseas), but after I got a less conspicuous car I continued the practice to avoid road-ragers.

What an asshole. I'm going to assume this man is a slum lord, in which case his tenants aren't in any position to take a principled stand for fear of being homeless. If rental history were not an issue, I'd love to see a bunch of them refuse to pay rent for several months while they looked for another apartment. Force this douche to start the expensive and time-consuming eviction process for a shiatload of people.

I had an asshole rental agency one time that tried to force me to allow them to show the house while I was still in the process of moving out. Mr teeny was working out of state and I was by myself with 3 kids and the flu was getting passed from kid to kid. I still had two weeks before I was scheduled to be out but they were insisting that they were going to show up with potential renters. The day they were scheduled to show up I set up bug bombs all throughout the house and set them all off just minutes before they all came walking up to the door. Then I spent the evening at my sister's. I felt sort of biatchy but mostly smug. They were the worst agency ive ever had to deal with ever.

And when he sent out this letter threatening anybody who voted for Obama with eviction he just made the process that he will have to go through to evict somebody that much harder. When he takes somebody to eviction court all they have to do is whip out this letter. They may not win, but it sure will gum up the works and draw things out, hell you may even find a judge siding with the person being evicted because of this letter.
