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.
You decide . . .
