TKC MUST READ!!! BLOG COMMUNITY FAVE SUPER DAVE DENOUNCES LACK OF GRATITUDE FROM KC TENANTS!!!



The KC Tenants are hoping establish "a bill of rights" for renters that will limit the ability of landlords to discriminate and enforce a bevy of home provider restrictions hoping to improve the quality of life for low-income residents.

Consideration and council debate of these new rules was delayed for one week.

And so, we appreciate a friend of the blog for providing his ALTERNATIVE perspective. Here's the highlight of his argument which speaks to our Sunday sensibilities and attitude of gratitude. Take a look:

Super Dave: My Thoughts On The Landlord Issue

The mentality of people who expect so much for free and have absolutely zero respect for what they receive or show any appreciation for such, continues to escalate . . . That can no longer be accepted.

If a tornado came through my neighborhood today and destroyed my house and someone came along and handed me a tent to live in to stay dry as I slept at night, I'd more than grateful for such and always remember the act of kindness. I would care for it like it was a multi-million dollar mansion even knowing the gift probably cost less than a hundred dollars. If I was offered a small one-room trailer with a real bed I'd say thank you and shut up while being eternally grateful. You wouldn't see me on TV hating on someone for not offering me the Taj Mahal during my time of need. If I rented a small place and failed o pay my rent while the destroying the property, you wouldn’t see me on TV screaming that my landlord is a d-bag and never fixes anything.

So many people are no long thankful today for what they have or where they live. If they don't own it, they destroy it, while yelling that the owners are nothing but rich bastards, so F-'em.

I don't have the answer to Kansas City's housing crisis, but I do know that money for nothing isn't the solution any more than granting carte blanche for destruction of property is now considered acceptable behavior.

If a landlord is to be held accountable, then equal accountability laws need to be in place to protect the landlord from the renters.

People in need deserve mercy and they also deserve reasonable accomidations. Some of these places are just slums and the city is right to demand improvement. We have to have better laws to keep people out of dangerous living conditions. That's not just a human right but also a public safety concern.

I'm hoping we get some good questions on this debate from council.

What I'm afraid will happen is that they'll rubber stamp it.

If this passes, it will dry up housing because most landlords will decide it's not worth it. The regulations are too prohibitive for any busiensss. This is just a measure to increase the level of and need for public housing.

The plan is simple. They're putting everybody in the projects.

Once again I see that the readers of this blog simply don't know what they're talking about.

The KC Tenants have worked closely with City Hall and advocate in the community. They have done their homework and sought the advice of city hall workers. To downplay their efforts as mere handouts is shameful and wrong. We can only hope that more "activists" followed their same path and scheduled meetings and held conversations rather than just ranting online.

This is a powerful group and their complaints are valid. That's more than I can say for readers of this blog who don't seem to understand how our city really works to include and protect all people!

Balance out the ordinance by permitting quickie evictions of tenants who trash their apartments or permit violent guests. Landlords be sure to take photos of the apartment before you rent it, to show the court what part the tenants have played in deterioration of the premises.

There is no landlord out there who would not want tenants who pay their rent on time, don't cause problems and keep the place clean. There are many tenants who don't do any of those things. They are as much predators as the stereotypical "bad" landlord is.

So a a prospective tenant arrives fully prepared with pay check stubs, excellent references, solid work history and credit history, drivers license photo copied, able to handle all move in costs...

Then the next one is wearing a KC Tenants shirt, fills out the application in a half ass dishonest manner, no references or job history, and says this is my house I'll take it! Right NOW. I'll pay first months and that's it no deposit, and YOU Mr Landlord better not screw up!

Who you going to rent the home to?

Sure they have Go4KC you liar. All about their complaints and not the complaints of the real landowners. I know not all renters are bad but where is the protection for landlords in this so called new ordinance for all those that are? Will this so call ordinance deal with property destruction? Will this travesty of justice allow a landlord to throw a renter out if they are 90 days past due for 4 to 6 months rent with out having to hire a lawyer to do so?

Wait I know, Go4KC is going to guarantee all landlords get their money and that all damages by bad tenants will be paid for by Go4KC out of their own pocket.

Gopher seems to forget who all the tickets are being written to for trash and broke down cars in the yard, gopher, did you know the landlord gets the ticket and not the tenant? Makes perfect sense because the city knows the tenants won’t pay for them, sounds like another official city scam if you ask me, the tenant trashes everything and the landlord gets the tickets because he can’t go on his own property to fix things or cleanup the mess because they don’t have rights to their own property, the tenants have to give permission and they nevar do because they are assholes, like you gopher.

"Home Providers" are independent contractors who provide care in their own homes to the people they support.

Landlords, on the other hand...

At best the parents of a newborn child is a "home provider" in the sense the tenant rights advocates advocate.

Based on my 5 year experience in Kansas City as a renter, the market is plagued with renters (and landlords) not living up to their part of the contract. The landlords have lowered expectations over time (decades) due to the poor quality of the renters. No value in improving a home if the renter will not return the home in equal or better condition. I was floored to visit rent houses in nice neighborhoods with structural deficiencies unaddressed but with a history of tenants not reporting the deficiencies. A water leak under the sink unreported turns a $100 fix into a $10,000 fix over years. Unfortunately the higher quality rentals will cost both the landlord and the tenant more money.

The tenants expect the amenities of a hotel; but in reality the tenants need to live up to their part of the bargain. Is it really too much to ask to take out the trash, mow the lawn, check for leaks under the sink, open the counters in the winter to prevent freezing, change the hvac filters monthly, clean the carpets, prevent damage from pets, prevent damage from friends, don't sell drugs, don't make drugs, don't do drugs,

and pay the rent on time?

That was an excellent and TRUE blog. But of course the money for nothing folks will see it differently. The good news is, landlords can and are selling out, and those folks will know what it's like to pay high rent for the same garbage.

Nobody is going into business to lose money. The end result of this ordinance will be to make low income rentals unprofitable. Ergo, a reduction of the supply of low income housing ensues. Can't fight economics.

Landlords will just ask for the first six months up front. Lot bigger deposits are coming too. This is one of the dumbest and worst ideas I've ever heard

Anonymous said...

Landlords are ahead of the game.

In advance; first month, last month, agent fee equal to one month and deposit equal to one month. The agent will vet the renters, not the landlord. And more troubling is the verification of both income and employment. The proof of income in excess 4X the rent per month isn't without issues for the masses working hourly as the employers will verify nothing in excess of 40 hours per week. The employee working overtime each and every week will have no option to "verify" the additional income.

And for the more risk averse landlord the ideal renter will be paying last month, deposit, agent fee AND 12 months in advance. A $1,000 a month house for rent will require a $15,000 check prior to receipt of the key.

You asked for it, you got it (KC Tenant).

Following the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the onset of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt won the 1932 presidential election on a promise to give America a "New Deal" to promote national economic recovery. The 1932 election also saw a new Democratic majority sweep into both houses of Congress, giving Roosevelt legislative support for his reform platform. Both Roosevelt and the 73rd Congress called for greater governmental involvement in the economy as a way to end the depression

The period preceding the 1873 Long Depression had been one of increasing economic internationalism, championed by efforts such as the Latin Monetary Union, many of which then were derailed or stunted by the impacts of economic uncertainty. The extraordinary collapse of farm prices provoked a protectionist response in many nations. Rejecting the free trade policies of the Second Empire, French president Adolphe Thiers led the new Third Republic to protectionism, which led ultimately to the stringent Méline tariff in 1892. Germany's agrarian Junker aristocracy, under attack by cheap, imported grain, successfully agitated for a protective tariff in 1879 in Otto von Bismarck's Germany over the protests of his National Liberal Party allies. In 1887, Italy and France embarked on a bitter tariff war. In the United States, Benjamin Harrison won the 1888 US presidential election on a protectionist pledge.

As a result,, he developed his own solution called the "Share Our Wealth" program, which would establish a net asset tax, the earnings of which would be redistributed so as to curb the poverty and homelessness epidemic nationwide during the Great Depression.

Malamir (Bulgarian: Маламир) was the ruler of Bulgaria 831–836. Malamir was a son of Omurtag and a grandson of Krum. His name may be of Slavic origin, which would make him the first Bulgar khan to possess a Slavic name; this has led to the speculation that his mother was a Slav, although that cannot be proven. Another theory is that it was an Iranian name, as there is an Iranian city named Malamir.

Malamir became ruler of Bulgaria in 831 on the death of his father Omurtag, because his older brother Enravota (Voin) had forfeited his right to the succession by becoming a Christian. It is possible that Malamir was young and inexperienced at the time of his accession, and that affairs of state were managed by his kavhan (kaukhanos) Isbul.

About 833, Malamir executed his brother Enravota for refusing to renounce Christianity. After the expiration of the original 20-year peace treaty(?) with the Byzantine Empire in 836, emperor Theophilos ravaged the regions inside the Bulgarian frontier. The Bulgarians retaliated, and under the leadership of Isbul they reached Adrianople. At this time, if not earlier, the Bulgarians annexed Philippopolis (Plovdiv) and its environs. Several surviving monumental inscriptions from this reign make reference to the Bulgarian victories and others to the continuation of construction activities in and near Pliska. Malamir died in 836, allegedly as retribution for his execution of his older brother.

In several older studies, Malamir is identified with his successor Presian I, and it is assumed that he survived until the 850s as the direct predecessor of Boris I. This is very unlikely, as Malamir is attested as having been succeeded by his nephew (the son of his brother Zvinitsa), while Boris I was preceded by his father Presian I. Zlatarski resolved the problems in the fragmentary sources by determining that Malamir's unnamed nephew and successor was in fact Presian I, and Boris I was the latter's son.

The 17th century Volga Bulgar compilation Cäğfär Taríxı (a work of disputed authenticity) represents Balamir (i.e., Malamir) as the son of Yomyrčak (i.e., Omurtag), and as the brother of Sabanša (i.e., Zvinica), who was the father of Birdžihan (i.e., Presian I).

Treblinka was managed by 20 to 25 SS overseers (Germans) and 80 to 120 Hiwi guards of various Soviet ethnicities, including Russian and the majority of Ukrainian Red army prisoners of war. They were assisted by a cadre of Jewish inmates known as Kapos, who were prisoner functionaries. The name Ivan was not an uncommon name in the camp. Ivan is a common Ukrainian, Russian and Belarusian given name. Volksdeutsche were known to have Slavic given names. An example would be Ivan Klatt, a Volksdeutscher who served in the Sobibor extermination camp, as the Ukrainian guard leader. According to Rajchman six men called Ivan worked at Treblinka. The vast majority of Hiwi guards who were trained at the Trawniki concentration camp facility had to contend with the language barrier. However, there were a number of Volksdeutsche among them, valued because they spoke German, Ukrainian, Russian and other languages. They could also understand basic Yiddish. The German and Austrian SS command, local Poles, and Jewish inmates often referred to guards as Ukrainians not only because of their ethnicity, or because they originated from Ukraine, but because they spoke Ukrainian between themselves. Most of the squad commanders however were Volksdeutsche

There are some interesting little historical lessons offered by somebody. Even though bizarre and off topic, it’s better than most of the comments here. When did Bulgaria fall to the Mohammedan Turks? If you know. Was it befor or after 1453 when Constantinople fell??

And ain’t it swell that barely thirty years after the Turks put the finishing touches on their genocude/jihad of Armenians Greeks Nestorian s Assyrians etc (I.e. all the Christian subjects of the Turkish realm) the Turks were invited to join NATO????? Hey in retrospect I think maybe worldwide Christianity (especially in the Middle East) would have fared far better if it had been the USA instead of the USSR that collapsed in December 1990. Russia would have never ever started wars of aggression against Iraq or Syria or Libya nor would they have ever in a million years funded and armed jihadis like America likes to do since we created al quaeda to fight the soviets who were trying to modernize Afghan in the 80s. I think maybe we were the “Evil Empire” that our Hollywood values president was talking about....
