rhys jones 1 week, 6 days ago on Mobile homes have long offered workforce housing

I couldn't afford my own apartment in either place. I was referring to roommate situations, which are both more affordable, and more numerous, than in this fair city. And they aren't in trailer parks. I've lived in Dream Island eight times, to date. And that's not even an option. Enough is enough.

As soon as I hone my skills to a level where I can find a real job, I'm moving to San Diego, right near the beach -- it's cheaper. [They don't trust white guys around dishwashers down there, precluding that pursuit. Talk about reverse discrimination.] Done the trailer route. Not the stablest, in my experience.

San Diego, even if that gig works out. It's here, keystrokes away, but the housing (and beaches) are there.

There are two distinct classes in this country: The Haves, and the Have-Nots. Or more precisely, Landowners and Everybody Else -- with the latter class working for the former class.

The Haves, to a large degree, are descendants of the pioneers who stole it from the Indians in the first place, then passed it down through the generations... to where now it's sitting vacant, not doing anything for anybody, they can't make it pay, and the Haves come crying for gas money for the monster truck, lest they have to borrow again or divest some holdings... so we can KEEP it non-productive, a drain on everybody, of use to nobody...

Must be a helluva cross to bear. My heart cries; take our money.

Gobbledegook. Where are the infrastructure failings to justify this claim?

I ain't no Fred, but I've moved rocks for new roads before. Big rocks, little rocks, in the way, out of the way, they all had to go somewhere else. Sometimes I had a machine. Not often.

Can we afford a second opinion, or are we just going to write the check now?

It is legally-sanctioned, thinly-justified, good ol' boy theft -- but at least it's from you, the landowners, (deeded, levied (mortgaged)) and not me (directly).

Obviously it pays to have the right friends. They take care of their own kind.
