All the crying landlords out there not breaking their backs in Amazon factories for a can of tuna tonight: Housing is vastly overpriced in most places, particularly under capitalism. Housing is a human right, particularly during a pandemic. Banks are parasitic wealth siphoners.

"My only source of income is the tens of thousands of dollars a month I get for doing nothing. The bank will be mad at me!"

Unaffordable rents & hyper-overpriced mortgages blowing up is the point. Get out of the 3.2 trillion dollar fiat-currency-backed property pyramid scheme.

"General Electric Workers Walk Off the Job, Demand to Make Ventilators"

The broken billionaire-psychopath-run plutocracy of the US, dragging its feet on mass-mobilization of critical medical equipment that could save millions will put every dollar of profit over countless deaths. It's up to the workers to *force* companies like GE through strikes to make critical N-95s, etc. (And Amazon workers should continue to strike to force socialized goods distribution)

@silverspookgames Even IF he was only charging $500/mo per unit (which lmao this is 2020, no way) he's pulling in 16k PER MONTH. I work my ass off and make 1/4 of that, which is still a LOT more than many many people. Fuck this guy and his inability to manage a MINIMUM nearly 200k budget. Eat an entire mountain of dicks.

@ItsJenNotGabby
They probably bought so many properties that they got into unsustainable debt. Instead of using their income to finish paying the properties they bought, they kept buying more and more properties to earn more.

Guess what happens when suddenly they lost their income...

How's that financial insecurity feeling, chumps? Like the taste of your own medicine?

... if this goes on, soonee or later real estate is going to crash, and hard. Properties will lose their value because nobody will want to buy.

Which is exactly how it should be.

@silverspookgames

caps, drugs? 

@silverspookgames @wandrew also frfr this shows how terrified capitalists actually are of unions when the working class realise that they're being pitted against each other

@silverspookgames These are infinitely funnier if you imagine they're written by Basil Fawlty.

@silverspookgames everyone should work less so no-one(like the landlord) has to be a leech.

That's assuming things can't be done voluntarily entirely. (ok it assumes more things than that)

@silverspookgames
When the banks foreclose on Mum and Pop investors after the Lockdown, no one wins, not the tenants and not the landlords.

Landlords and tenants need to work together and come to a compromise. Better to get some rent rather than none.

@silverspookgames I love the slow realization that his tenants absolutely don't need him for fucking anything and he's literally a parasite

@silverspookgames My favorite comment on this: "It's not too late to go to school or learn a trade."

@silverspookgames I'm suddenly glad we're not renting anymore! we purchased a home right before this all happened!!

@silverspookgames thank you!! ironically it was cheaper to buy than to keep paying at the rent rate we had. the area we were in has become popular to live in and taxes have gone way up.

@silverspookgames A rent strike where they did everything right and properly put pressure on the landlord
