Tenants Plagued By Mold, Water Leaks And 'Large Critters' Gain Class Action Status To Sue Landlord

Tenants of a landlord notorious for the festering conditions of its apartment units have won the right to sue as a class. Complaints by tennants of Ruskin Place Apartments, a 169-unit complex in south Kansas City, ranged from "vast amounts of water" leaking through windows, mold and sagging floors to inadequate heat, unsecured doors and "large critters" roaming through the units.

They should move out. There are a lot of nice apartments in south Joco that don’t have these living conditions.

^^^ If a conservative doesn’t like guns he doesn’t buy one.
If a liberal doesn’t like guns he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian he doesn’t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is down-and-out he thinks about how to better the situation.
A liberal, wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer he doesn’t go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced.

If a conservative decides he needs health care he goes about shopping for it or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

8:11, that's just bullshit.

"Conservatives" are good guys, & liberals are bad guys.

You're so fucking deep.

Conservatives don't believe in abortion, therefore it doesn't matter what the majority wants.

Conservatives don't believe in gun control, therefore it doesn't matter what the majority wants.

BTW, I believe in the separation of church & state.

If the majority believes in killing Jews or having blacks as slaves, then it's OK? Your majoritarian obsession makes poor morality.
