I hate a theif!
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:52:35 pm »
In my area, if a house becomes vacant it most likely will be vandalized. They will steal the central air unit and strip out the copper wiring, tubs and sinks. It cost me $600 to repair what thieves took from one of my rental units that became vacant. They probably received $20 bucks and had to work hard to get it. Last week a local business was ripped off for four central a/c units in one night! I can no longer buy insurance on a non occupied house.


Had enough here in Georgia!

It is like that everywhere.    People are running alarm wires to A/C units and boxing them in with locked cages.   You can not leave scrap metal out anywhere now or some one with clean it up for you.   Think about all the foreclosures and bank owned properties that sit for years.   It is bad when someone will work to steal.

In total, thieves cost me several thousand dollars last year.

i just evicted our renters.  it was a different kind of theft, but rather than go to court for the eviction i gave them the option of just leaving and not paying what they owed.  probably would have cost me as much to file, wait, and then evict, as to let them walk.  i don't understand people not paying their bills!

while the carpet guy was there today doing the estimate, he told us that he'd had a whole spool of wire stolen from his garage. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Unfortunately, I can see it getting much worse.

But what we're seeing is only the tip of the iceberg...

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev
