What’s the connection here between covid and rental properties?
There was a rent mandate where people didn’t have to pay rent due to lockdowns. I don’t think it applied to owners though. Not sure.
Here’s the landlord telling me why he’s selling immediately.

“Our government is taking down mom and pop landlords, because they want the government (Blackrock arm) to own all real estate. That was already clear.

This morning, Fauxcohantas introduced a bill to reinstate eviction moratoriums "as long as the pandemic lasts," but under the aegis of the HHS, Department of Health and Human Services. Because the Supremes said that the CDC did not have the authority. It's a libtard work around. Link:

A few days ago, a Broward county liberal announced that his tenants would have to be vaccinated, and he didn't care what DeSantis legislated. I think he was encouraged to do this.

Furhermore, Pelosi publically denounced capitalism:

The "cancel rent" communist cry will never hurt Wall Street, or the megarich. It will only hurt the middle class.

And the middle class seems to be living in cuckoo cloudland, waiting for NBC to announce that we are now a socialist (code word for communist) nation now.

I had planned to retire on income from my teeny SSI and two small rentals and one airbnb over my garage.

That was a pipedream. I am 66. If I survive the Great Reset, unvaxxed, a harsher lifestyle is in my future.

Would happilly buy a mini camper and go nomad if it weren't for all of my rescue pets, and possible vax passports across state lines in the future.

Might buy a small piece of agriculturally zoned land to park my camper, and fence for dogs etc.

Crazy times.”

AS LONG AS THE PANDEMIC LASTS. That’s a good point. It could be our next 20 year spendathon.

Don't take this the wrong way but the landlord is an idiot. There have been federal programs available for 18 months to make sure he's covered while his renters can't pay. We can debate if it was a good thing for the government to do, but he had ample opportunity to get paid what he was owed in rent.

Now, if we are get to a point where we want to expand eviction moratoriums without making sure renters are taken care of, yeah I have a problem with that. But if true that's more an idiot move by the democrats and less some grand conspiracy.

The fact that he is gladly anti vax and is basically going to go live in a van down by the river tells you alot about his mindset and where he has been getting his information.

There’s no way for me to take it. Online associate such as yourself. Just relaying some of the mindsets that are morphing into an even crazier 2022. The unhinged are becoming unglued.

I don’t know if you saw my Melbourne videos today but imagine that attitude coming here. I won’t post the meme here because it’s very tacky. But I’ll tell you about it. Black and white photo of two water fountains side by side. A sign hangs over each one. First says “vaccinated “ second says “unvaccinated “.

OK. I'll quit saying/acting like this doesn't have anything to do with politics because I never have said/acted like it doesn't have anything to do with politics.

Now, you need to wait until tomorrow, look at what you wrote, and see if you can realize that it is absolutely, absurdly one-sided. You act like only Biden and democrats made this political and completely ignore the political antics of Trump and republicans. And, don't take that the wrong way, I am not defending the antics of Biden or other dems. It would be funny if it wasn't so dang sad that so many Americans actually think that the issues are always due to the other team when that is so far from reality that it isn't even funny.
In a time that calls for us all to be less lazy and to actually see that the "media" and certain "politicians" are using events, which they have little to no control over, in attempts at political gain and even further division of the populace. We all, need to guard against statements that revile and completely blame one side or the other for this thing, be it blame Trump or blame Biden, both are FALSE narratives designed to stoke one sided political anger and gain. In times like this it's imperative that each of us steps outside his or her comfort zone in an attempt to understand and have empathy for our fellow man. Instead, the "media" on most sides only wants to report divisions and the unhinged. Sad.

It’s not the pro business thing to do. I’m thankful they made the 100 employee rule otherwise half of the people I work with would quit tomorrow. You obviously have no idea how hard it is to find employees right now. Especially CDL drivers. Those guys can pretty much pick their job and name their price right now. Fortunately we have a crew who likes to sleep in their own beds at night but there are plenty of local jobs they can take and leave at any time.
So half the people you work with are taking their chances with the virus rather than take a simple vaccine, due to what? Their medical expertise or their silly divisive politics? Which is it? Honestly, the problem is those people, they are prolonging the pandemic, causing the spread and shutting down the society due to our hospitals being packed with them. putting pressure on the problem and asking them to comply so that society can open completely is exactly what has to happen. We can argue all day the logistics of how that should be done, but it needs to be done. It's strange to me that someone with my same political persuasion, except for on vaccines, would die on this hill...but that is exactly what 10's of 1,000's are doing.

President Zoran Milanovic of Croatia in a live video feed has said the country is done jabbing. He said "Croatia is NOT sufficiency vaccinated, we are only at only around 50% unlike the EU. But I don't care... we've vaccinated enough - and everyone knows it". He adds further: "We will not go more than 50%, let them fence us with wire."

Well, at 66 and unvaccinated, he's certainly not going out of his way to survive.
He’s with the “pure blood” people. They literally are claiming they welcome death over being vaccinated. It’s the “ hill we die on” and even are writing songs and poems about it. No. I’m not a pure blood. Just fascinated at watching this all play out on a global stage.

Apparently in Australia, if you are quarantined, they track you. If you receive a text, you have a certain time allotment to respond and prove you’re home. The government started issuing COVID quarantines to protesters to make them stay home even though they’re not exposed or tracked to exposure. Then the mandates. That’s why it’s starting to get bad there. That and the vaccinated and media are putting severe pressure on the unvaccinated. You can read it in the comments on the rubber bullets. People saying they deserve to be shot with real bullets. Hard to fathom the loss of empathy between the two sides.

Now the army is being called in

Is The Worst Over? Modelers Predict A Steady Decline In COVID Cases Through March

npr.org

Americans may be able to breathe a tentative sigh of relief soon, according to researchers studying the trajectory of the pandemic.
The delta surge appears to be peaking nationally, and cases and deaths will likely decline steadily now through the spring without a significant winter surge, according to a new analysis shared with NPR by a consortium of researchers advising the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Any of us who have been following this closely, given what happened with delta, are going to be really cautious about too much optimism," says Justin Lessler at the University of North Carolina, who helps run the hub. "But I do think that the trajectory is towards improvement for most of the country," he says.

The most likely scenario, says Lessler, is that children do get vaccinated and no super-spreading variant emerges. In that case, the combo model forecasts that new infections would slowly, but fairly continuously, drop from about 140,000 today now to about 9,000 a day by March.
Deaths from COVID-19 would fall from about 1,500 a day now to fewer than 100 a day by March 2022.

"We have to be cautious because the virus has shown us time and time again that new variants or people loosening up on how careful they're being can lead things to come roaring back," Lessler warns.

He agrees that overall the pandemic will be "comparatively under control by March," but says "there could be a number of bumps in the road."

Getting everyone who is eligible vaccinated is still key to preventing further deaths. Even in this optimistic scenario, the U.S. is projected to reach a cumulative total of more than 780,000 deaths by March.
