How about signing a new law?

No eviction as long as the crisis is on-going.

The picture says it all: Bail out the people, not the banks!

No, it's all under the watch of these governors and mayors that pushed and continue to push the lockdown.

So trump has no real power or no real responsibility or both?

Seems like a very lame way to pass the buck.

as the coronavirus crisis leaves tens of millions at risk of homelessness.

All under Trump's watch.

Trump and the billionaires in his admin have zero idea what it means to pay rent. Or make house payments. They're landlord class, the so-called 'elite'. Trump etal have Wall Street and global big banks backing them.

Trump has media shills like Hannity, who's a slumlord himself using his TV time to extol the ruling class and disparage those at the margins of society, a number that has grown since Trump was elected. Trump's rich daddy was a slumlord himself.

Trump and his fellow 'elite' continue to divide the country along class and ethnic lines.

Putin and Xi are smiling as the US continues to weaken under Trump's watch.

Amazing how you guys never get tired of talking race, Not one person mentioned it, but for liberals, if they don't, they can't make any legitimate argument without using the "race lifeline."

You spent all day yesterday talking about it.

As for liberals, ask one about it. “You guys”?

6 ( +6 / -0 )

No, I just pointed out that liberals use race a wedge to drum up votes. I don't care about race, but liberals have used the race card over the last 12 years obsessively. But liberals have no other choice but to use it if they want to move forward and get some sort of political traction.

If you think race has no relevance to this issue I’d suggest you start by reading the above news story.

If they replaced the woman in the photo holding the ‘cancel rent’ sign with an attractive white woman the republicans might have a change of heart.

Maybe Tulsi could do it.

Here we go yet again. Liberals turning everything into race. The tactic is getting pretty worn out and predictable. At this point everyone sees through it.

As I told bass, I’m not a liberal, this issue is clearly related to race and read the news article.

Please don't do this on yet another thread.

You constantly play the race card, the liberal card and often contradict yourself within minutes of posts.

Millions of lives are at risk because of how this crisis has been handled.

And now a homeless epidemic threatens like you've never seen before. Time for the elite to show compassion. No more tax breaks for the rich, be they Democrat, Republican, Corporate, Hollywood... whatever.

As I continue to stay to people with money, it's easy for us to relocate, move the money and move our businesses, that's on the leaders of that State, not on the people that provide jobs, doesn't bother them in the slightest in the end, but the poorer and less financially fortunate, it's devastating.

Threatening people who only want a roof over their heads.

And this, folks, is why capitalism as we know it, is doomed.

Hello new Depression!

Terrible! A lot of landlords are screwed too because they need rent to pay the mortgage. The house of cards is starting to fall.

DeBlasio is threatening the people and the people that can afford it told the man to stuff it. Why would any rich person sacrifice their livelihoods and their families for people when they can't even get support from the government to make their lives easier to provide people with jobs and careers. I wouldn't sacrifice my family, of course not. DeBlasio and the Dems can try to implement more socialism, but that's going to run out real fast as many countries in Latin America are so used to and that's where we are headed if things don't change and Biden and Harris won't make that change especially when it comes to China. Socialism will never take hold for long in the US, the Capitalist system is the only system that leads to more prosperity over the years.

Sorry that liberals hate the truth, but for 12 years we heard that if you don't support Obama you are a racist, but if you support Herman Caine, you are a sellout, if you didn't support Hillary, you are a sexist, Stacy Abrams couldn't win, not because she was a horrible candidate, but because she was black, Corey Booker didn't get enough air time on TV because he was black. If you don't like Ilhan Omar it's because she's black, if you spoke out against John Lewis"s attacks on Trump and you jumped all over him it's because he was black as the same was with Elijah Cummings and if you don't like Kamala Harris, the only reason is not because of her history as a prosecutor which many Democrats and conservatives criticized, but because now it's because she's black.

Race is not the issue here, it's about leadership and liberals continue to use race for every political debate, every one of them to shut down any dissent.

Exactly. But everyones waking up to it finally.

Yes, thanks to the progressive and regressive policies of DeBlasio and like with California you have yet another liberal that has completely destroyed the city and with the radical economic policies he implemented, why on Earth would any person with money stay there. As I continue to stay to people with money, it's easy for us to relocate, move the money and move our businesses, that's on the leaders of that State, not on the people that provide jobs, doesn't bother them in the slightest in the end, but the poorer and less financially fortunate, it's devastating.

Listened to Monty pythons song, “always look on the bright side of life” yesterday.

housing market crash is an opportunity to buy houses very cheap. Hold on to them for a year or two, wait for the desperate housing shortage, and sell for 4 times you paid$$$

As long as property owners get their rent, fine. That’s what you mean by “bail out the people” right?

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

Yeah thats the part these "no rent" people dont get.

The person who owns the property depends on that rent to pay their bills.

A lot of them dont have a job other than "landlord".

All under Trump's watch.

No, it's all under the watch of these governors and mayors that pushed and continue to push the lockdown.

Trump and the billionaires in his admin have zero idea what it means to pay rent.

As well as the Democrats. You think Pelosi and Schumer or even AOC worry?

Or make house payments. They're landlord class, the so-called 'elite'. Trump etal have Wall Street and global big banks backing them.

Well, if these leaders wouldn't put a stranglehold on these job creators people could work, but they don't and rich people always have the power to be mobile and move so that the Democrats can't get their mitts on our money or just relocate and poor people can't and as I have always said to you, show me a poor person that can provide jobs for the needy.

Trump has media shills like Hannity, who's a slumlord himself using his TV time to extol the ruling class and disparage those at the margins of society, a number that has grown since Trump was elected. Trump's rich daddy was a slumlord himself.

CNN and their Bodybuilding star who himself on TV acts as if he cares, but is nasty towards his neighbors and threatens them with physical harm if they don't wear a mask, these people wouldn't have a clue about pain and suffering because they don't need to, they can move, so this notion that they are more caring is a complete farce.

Trump and his fellow 'elite' continue to divide the country along class and ethnic lines.

No, they don't because they are not the ones supporting the dismantling of statues, defunding the police, canceling people that disagree with them, destroying communities and property and pushing the race issue, that is 100% Democrats that are pushing for this change.
