    Canada bans US citizens unless they are driving directly to Alaska. Canadians turn in Americans sneaking into Canada to their immigration services. Also reports of Canadians vandalizing cars with US plates.

    We are the pariah of the world.

    Let’s have a sensible discussion about landlords for once.

    The argument seems to be that landlords are parasites because they exploit the worker who have no other options but to rent, because house prices are so high, and they remain high because landlords deny the housing market of houses.

    Do the communists here think that ALL renting is exploitation? For example when I left Uni and needed to get a job away from where my family live, I needed a place to stay, so I rented, I wanted to rent because I didn’t have any money to buy, and I needed a job, and I needed a place to live. Under these circumstances where I want to rent because of my circumstances, and the landlord wants to rent to me, is this exploitation? Is it exploitation if you get a temp job in a new city but you only want to be there for 6 months, and you preferred to rent because it would save you money, is that exploitation? What about people who own hotels or motels and rent places for only 1 night, is that mini-explotation?

    If not all renting is exploitation then where do we draw the line? For example say you need 10k to buy a house (deposit) but you only have 2k in savings. What if renting market is driving up house prices and we banned all renting, and in theory the cost of that house then drops to 5k to buy. But you still only have 2k, was that still exploitation?

    If we stopped all renting and made it so people can only own a home if they live in it, where would people with not enough money to buy a home actually live?

    Trump belongs on Mt Rushmore about as much as pineapple belongs on pizza. What a joke.

    The liar in chief really doesn’t want to be re-elected. He has alienated people of color, women, suburbinites and now is pissing off the retirees. Why would anybody vote for this guy? He has screwed up everything he has touched. DUMP trump 2020

      He wants to win to stay out of the penitentiary. If he loses he’ll be indicted in New York state by March.

        Unless Gov Cuomo pardons him on the state charges which wouldn’t surprise me.

    The right-wing censor is at it again. Free speech only when it doesn’t contradict what he believes.
