feltrider: Cool. I think the judge should be dragged from his home and be forced to watch as it's burned to the ground, and then have it explained to him that it's not an economic activity.


It would not be. It would be criminal activity subject to the criminal laws of the state in which it occurred. It would not be activity that could be regulated as interstate commerce by the federal government.

MattytheMouse: Man, Texans should really cite these people out, if only they were facing voter suppressing campaigns in a gerrymandered state, and an appointed judge by a guy that dod not win election.

Oh well, you get what you vote for. Except when you don't. Because thaaat's democracy!


Or Texas is just like...big and diverse. Voting in any city is very easy. I must have missed these voter suppression campaigns keeping people out of the polls. Democrats in Texas turned out in record numbers to vote and all major cities are Democratic controlled.

I promise it's not all like that.  It's just easy to overlook, especially right now.

F*ck judge, tho.


I'm sure there may have been a good German here or there during WWII, but we still needed to bomb the f*ck out of the Third Reich before they destroyed the world.

Same thing about Texas.

DrakhanV: Wanderlusting: As much as it hurts me to say it, this was the right call. Unless the government wants to pay for the mortgages, upkeep, maintenance, insurance, and taxes of those properties, renters can get fukt.

Landlords are still expected to fund those police departments, fire departments, schools, libraries, and garbage pick up but can't collect from their deadbeat renters?

Nah. Either make the landlords whole or allow them the steps necessary to get paying renters in the building.

The only deadbeats are the landlords.

For years, whenever you heard the right wing saying that the economy was doing well, and giving their opinions on what they feel would make the economy improve, they were not referring to the capacity of the working class to spend money. They were talking about the capacity of the millionaire class and above to make more money, and the role that decreasing or eliminating taxes on them would have on that.

When Trump told us the economy was doing great you know he was talking about the stock market.

And now a right wing Texas judge is arguing that renting a home, something often done by people who cannot afford to purchase their own residence, should not be deemed economic activity?

This is all of a piece, you know.

The right want "the economy" to be defined as the stock market and the activities of rich people, while all the rest of us are to be seen as slaves to those people.

Now one of them is trying to enshrine that idea into law.

They are truly desperate to stifle progressive ideas from being implemented, aren't they?

The metric most everyone uses to judge a healthy economy is the employment rate. Our unemployment rate pre-Covid was exceptionally low, which is a good indicator that the economy was growing and thriving. This does not just mean the ultra-wealthy were getting more wealthy. Like it or not, but performance patterns of the Stonk Market are also good markers for our economy. Last time I checked, it isn't just the ultra-wealthy with 401ks, pensions, Roth IRAs, and 529s.

LordJiro: Landlords are a shining example of how capitalism thrives on creating useless, unnecessary middlemen, on the same level of shiattiness as health insurance companies.

Capitalist parasites have depressed wages for decades and sent housing prices (as well as healthcare prices, college prices, and the cost of pretty much everything) through the roof, so fewer and fewer people can afford to actually own a house. And now when a goddamn pandemic has taken even that meager amount of income from people, landlords are whining when the federal government wants to prevent them from getting tossed out on the goddamn street.

Go on, laissez-faire capitalists. Keep pushing. Continue the cruelty. Keep farking around, and you'll surely never have to find out.


My fiance and I just broke up (today). We live in her house, we rent out the home I owned before her and I got together. The renters have a lease. So my kid and I need to rent for awhile.

But keep pretending everyone is in a position to buy and buying makes the most sense for everyone all the time. In the meantime I will gladly pay rent to a landlord for two years until my kid graduates then figure out what I should do.

Dumbass.

"Dear Senator:

On behalf of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition of more than 200 national organizations committed to promoting and protecting the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States, I write in opposition to the confirmation of J. Campbell Barker for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

Mr. Barker, 37, is a young, conservative ideologue who has devoted the last several years to restricting voting rights, LGBT equality, immigrant rights, reproductive freedom, environmental protection, and fairness for criminal defendants. Mr. Barker does not possess the neutrality and fair-mindedness necessary to serve in a lifetime position as a federal judge."

More history at the link.

Mr. Barker, 37, is a young, conservative ideologue who has devoted the last several years to ensuring vote integrity, religious freedom, secure borders, the lives of the unborn, property rights, and championing victims rights.

See how leading language works?

There isn't a single conservative who cares about "religious freedom".  They only care about imposing their religious views on others.


Because imposing their religion on others is a fundamental part of their religion, and they want to be free to exercise it.

Of course most of the stock market is invested in by the wealthy, but this does not mean the non-wealthy do not have the same access and can benefit from it. The market itself is not evil and its existence arguably has allowed for unparalleled investment and growth of our economy. It isn't just the shareholders that are getting more wealthy as it is indicative that anyone within the organization is indirectly benefitting and allowing the company to grow (more jobs).

The problem comes with predatory behavior and shiat like thr Gamestop debacle.

Letting Texas secede would mean millions losing their rights, LGBT people being murdered, and a massive third-world oil sheikh country right at our borders.  Build guillotines instead.

No, because the left is too farking impotent to ever use one ... unlike the right who are quite proficient at erecting gallows.

Fourteen percent of Americans own 84% of stocks. 46% of Americans own no stock. Employment is an equally crappy metric as many Americans are underemployed and/or don't make a living wage.

GDP is the metric that economists use to rate economic health. You are clearly not an economist.

Oh yes.  The non-wealthy certainly have the same access to the stock market.  It is not like trading companies have invested billions in fiber technology, microwave transmitters, and custom computer chips to gain an advantage in high frequency day trading that generates wealth without contributing anything to the market.

Institute a per-trade tax and require that stocks be held for a measurable amount of time and you might START to close the gap that exists between the haves and the have-nots when it comes to how much benefit the stock market gives them.

Sure, but that's a different issue than whether the feds have the authority to put a moratorium in place.  You seem to have no issue with the feds being able to stop landlords from evicting renters, you just want the feds to make the process more equitable to landlords.  That's an issue of changing the regulation, not an issue of whether the regulation can be issued in the first place.  Don't confuse the two - you have to accept that the feds have the power to issue a moratorium if you think they have the power to include payments to landlords in such a process.  That makes the judge's ruling incorrect.

Unfortunately not the case.  Yes, some make Scrooge McDuck look reasonable, but I know one retired gal who has been unable to collect rent from her former tenants...now squatters...for months now.

Worse, the single mum original tenant has let her boyfriend and HIS friends move in; place now has broken windows, and the the driveway, and lawn, are full of broken-down pickup trucks.

Landlady's social security ain't gonna cover the repairs; she'll lose the place in a year, since she won't be able to cover taxes and mortgage.

And that means a lower tax base for the town, less money for services, etc.

If people don't like renting, maybe they should buy a house?

Plenty of homes available in the mid-west for under $50k. That's a mortgage payment of under $200/month!

Oh, don't want to live there? Well, maybe they can find someone to buy it for them and then allow them to love there for a monthly fee? Hmm ... sounds familiar.

The biggest mistake is the world 'landLORD'. makes you coonts think you are a cut above the peons.

You all dodge the tax on everything you can anyway and your pet right wing pols make it easy to do.


Problem is, it's like the stock market, in a way.   There's a huge gap between a hedge fund and and Joe Shmoe buying stocks, and there's a huge gap between institutional landlords like real estate investment trusts vs individual homeowners trying to make ends meet by renting out a spare room.

Treating them all the same leads to inequities.

Nah. Either make the landlords whole or allow them the steps necessary to get paying renters in the building.


Or we could... you know... set up programs to help the landlords stay afloat too.  Much as it hurts me to say, since more and more, the landlords whom I have spoken with have turned out, in their very heart of hearts, to be self-centered pricks.

Or, to put it another way... "Oh hey... you have enough spare money to own multiple parcels that you don't live on, but you continually charge other people to live on, which means you are using one of the most important aspects of life, shelter, as an investment vehicle, thereby being one of the primary drivers of that very same absolute necessity, shelter, staying out of reach of those less advantaged.  Help out."

Now, that said, this entire thing does significantly harm those struggling to invest by owning, for instance, one or two extra homes, while allowing the richest groups to survive and buy MORE homes as they drop to market, thereby concentrating wealth more, not less.  It NEEDS government intervention on the behalf of smaller owners, in order to avoid that.

I have friends that moved out of state for jobs but could not sell their house (decent house in a terrible school district).  They are not wealthy by any means so, they started renting it out.  If the renter fails to pay, they fail to pay the mortgage they still owe.  If they fail to pay the mortgage, the bank will foreclose.  As far as I know, foreclosure moratoriums are no longer in place.

So it seems that it is OK for the renters to not pay but it is not OK for home owners to not pay?  That is inconsistent.

Gyrfalcon: Bennie Crabtree: MattytheMouse: vygramul: Murkanen: vygramul: I can't wait for the lefties on facebook to blame Biden for this, saying it's proof he's basically a Republican.

11 posts denouncing the judge and Republicans, and you come in to show your ass by complaining about liberals.

Have you tried not doing that in every thread you show up in?  It's a bit monotonous at this point.

No, I'm not talking liberals. I'm talking about people further left than that who have no problem attacking liberals. People posting shiat like this:

NathanAllen: Of course, because only money can make an economic exchange, not people.


There was an entire war about this.

Maybe we should just continue construction of the border wall but divert it a bit so it wraps completely around Texas. With a moat full of piranhas. Possibly landmines.

NM Volunteer: aimtastic: Why do we keep stopping these assholes from seceding?

We should help. fark, I'd contribute to the Go Fund Me.

Letting Texas secede would mean millions losing their rights, LGBT people being murdered, and a massive third-world oil sheikh country right at our borders.  Build guillotines instead.


An oil-rich neighbor with a brand new and very serious drug cartel problem you say? - I know how this ends.

Texas can go f*ck itself.

bluejeansonfire: If you can't build your own guillotines at home, storebought is fine.


I only buy mine at Whole Foods. They're organic and locally sourced, and Amazon delivers them within an hour.

Discordulator: 433: Testiclaw: 433: Testiclaw: Texas is useless.

I'd support a huge public campaign to move every non-republican out of the state to relocate, and then burning the entire state to the ground.

Leave no trace of life.

You're kind of an asshole, aren't you?

I think Texas, in the grand scheme of things, does more to gouge the country rather than contribute.
And the "Texas mentality" is one of fantasy and poison.
Nuke it all.

I don't know where you're from, but it does sound a lot like you're running off stereotypes and news cycles.  I hope you'll have the chance some time to have someone show you around and let you see the very best side of Texas.  I can't ignore the jerks that live around here and are in enough numbers to barely keep us red, but I certainly can't ignore everyone else.  It makes me said that people have begun to view people and places in such a binary way.

Have to agree. Texas has some of the most fun and intelligent Americans I have ever interacted with. It remains one of the few places in the States that I would willingly visit.

Yes, there are problems there, but it is not as problematic as stereotypes make it out to be.


You've never lived there.  It's a cesspool of bigotry.

Ragin' Asian: So they'll bus the evictees to Nevada who'll dump them in the California desert.


You spelled landlords wrong.
