va:

to the 3rd amendment issue.

I feel the police abused powers they thought they had, but they aren't the military and to pull the 3rd amendment in this way should be a immediate failure for the home owner.

That said, I hope the home owner sues and win in another filing of the suit or changes the charges they are suing for and receives a six to seven digit apology.

I think it's simply an extra 0. i.e. 2,500/1,000, not 25,000/10,000

Oh wow, here's the REAL WTF:

"Our house? It's probably $200K LESS than we were approved for, and could've paid for. But we LOVE our house. It suits us well, and we plan to live here a very long time. It's a beautiful one story we can grow old in, and have paid off. It's 25,000 sq ft., 10,000 less than most of our friends in our income bracket."

IF these numbers are real, you just blew your entire argument... poor little rich girl.

Either that or you are mathematically challenged....

A man is suing the Henderson (Nevada) police for commandeering his home against his wishes so they could use it for surveillance of his neighbors.

A rare claim of a 3rd Amendment violation has been filed. The Third Amendment prohibits quartering soldiers in citizens' homes in times of peace without the consent of the owner.

C&P'd.

"On the morning of July 10th, 2011, officers from the Henderson Police Department responded to a domestic violence call at a neighbor's residence," the Mitchells say in the complaint. It continues: "At 10:45 a.m. defendant Officer Christopher Worley (HPD) contacted plaintiff Anthony Mitchell via his telephone. Worley told plaintiff that police needed to occupy his home in order to gain a 'tactical advantage' against the occupant of the neighboring house. Anthony Mitchell told the officer that he did not want to become involved and that he did not want police to enter his residence. Although Worley continued to insist that plaintiff should leave his residence, plaintiff clearly explained that he did not intend to leave his home or to allow police to occupy his home. Worley then ended the phone call. Mitchell claims that defendant officers, including Cawthorn and Worley and Sgt. Michael Waller then "conspired among themselves to force Anthony Mitchell out of his residence and to occupy his home for their own use."

The billionaires in our area are mostly older. They have worked hard, succeeded and then failed, sold their businesses, started over, then worked hard again. You see the famous 80 yr old car dealer in our area? He gives a lot to a lot of programs, without fanfare. Does he just go into the office for a few hours a week? Yeah, probably, he's EIGHTY YEARS OLD and still involved.

We need rich people. We need poor people. We need middle class. What we don't need is someone pining for a hand out because "it's not fair." "I didn't have help." "He inherited his dad's business." "They have a nicer house..." "They're so lucky."

Life isn't fair. One person's stubbed toe is another person's breast cancer. One person's abusive past is another person's priveleged but lonely existence.

I get tired of the complaints about the "rich people" and how they should give their riches away so everyone can have some. Fuck that. Ever read the story of the little hen who made the bread? Sowed the grain, tended the garden, harvested, kneaded the dough? She did all the work. Then when the bread was baking, everyone else came running for their slice.

Nope. That just doesn't cut it.

I've been at several economic levels in my life, and here's my take:

Someone mentioned poor hard working people needing to pay to have their lawn mowed. Counter productive, don't you think? I'm going to sound very sexist, and I'm the female here, but when you are paying more for child care and after school programs than you make at work, shouldn't you stay home and save money and also "be there" for your kids? I've known so many people who are working "piddly" $10 an hour job b/c they live over their heads, not bc they are poor and struggling, but bc they are "okay" and struggling. Too high mortgage, two new cars, cars and insurance for their teens, etc. So, b/c they're tired from working in a job they really dislike, they run through the drive thru, and b/c they feel guilt, they enroll their kids in dance, sports, lessons, every single evening of the week to "make up" for...something. I don't know what. Let's let our kids actually PLAY one or two nights a week, eh? So, they're tired, working an extra job, frustrated, stressed, they have no surplus savings built up for emergencies, much less saving for retirement, b/c god knows they'll never be able to retire anyway. A couple mortgages, cars, boat, vacations, and then b/c they are never home, a housekeeper, child care, doggie day care (seriously), and so on. Dining out every night, or most nights b/c they don't know how nor feel they have time or inclination to cook. It's not that hard, really.

My point?

Life is about choices. If you want to live above your income, that is your choice. If you want to work yourself into illness and frustration doing things you don't really enjoy, just to "fit in" somewhere, that's also your choice.

I've been poor and raising a family. It takes some imagination and not every choice is going to be met with, "oh cool, Mom, sure we'll go rent movies at the library, they're free there." It was met, in my case, with, 'Geeze, Mom, we're the poorest family in____(our city). I've been homeless. Going through a divorce. I even dug food out of a trash can. Long story, interesting story. I made it through. I've worked 3 jobs and went to college full time as a 43 year old divorcee. I've been married now to a guy who has his "shit" together regarding money. What makes this work is that I've been through enough in life to know what is important to me and what is not. I do not have to have an outside job in order for ends to be met, and not only ends met, but enough luxuries to enjoy life too.

Our house? It's probably $200K LESS than we were approved for, and could've paid for. But we LOVE our house. It suits us well, and we plan to live here a very long time. It's a beautiful one story we can grow old in, and have paid off. It's 25,000 sq ft., 10,000 less than most of our friends in our income bracket. We don't care. Every time we go on vacation and come back in through the door, I say with glee, "I love this house!" Our cars? Both older and paid for. Sometimes I get an urge for something nicer, yes.

I could go on, but I'm hoping you get my point. People make choices. It's not because someone is rich and someone is not and jealous. You want a better job? Go work for it, rise up, get promoted, or made different choices and save some money. Rich people aren't just usually rich overnight.

More on this in next post.

"There's a big gulf between 60 hours and 10 hours. Most people aren't really extremists in real life. "

We're not talking about "most people". We're talking about 1%ers.

In the mind of a typical poor person, is that the rich have free time, and they can pick and choose how to spend it. Which is possibly so, but more often than not, it isn't the case. Bobby for example is one of those people, I'm certain that his grandpop the DroneyOne holds the same outlook, as well as a few other liberals which often display their cerebral bankruptcy. It never crosses their feeble mind that, sometimes, just sometimes people actually do work, and they work VERY hard, make wise decisions and as a result are able to pull themselves out from the gutter.

I always wonder, why are these people so envious of others, why are they constantly insisting on looking into the purse of others, why are they whining endlessly instead of actually doing something to better themselves? Is crying victim going to get them out of the dirt? or is working, and making smarter choices will.

Weirdos.

VB, I said the same arguments can be made for high or low-income folks. You seem to have thought I was inverting your argument, but I thought I was balancing it.

There's a big gulf between 60 hours and 10 hours. Most people aren't really extremists in real life.
