In my opinion, there's two kinds of people in this world, Democrats and Republicans. Democrats are welfare people that don't want to work and want to stay Democrat. Trump is gonna take care of that though. So bye-bye you welfare Democrats.

Rights are wrong

I think it's a sad day when tenants have more rights than the landlords. They are allowed to prostitute and sell drugs out of the houses and not pay their rent. The landlord not only loses money on the rent, but are out money for attorneys to get them out of the house. These are young people we are dealing with. We are losing our society to young people and it's time to get something done. This is our future and it's looking bleak. Landlords, gather together and put a stop to this.
