Not a month goes by in my practice that I don’t hear clients utter the same phrase-sometimes in more colorful language-at least ten times: “I never should have rented to this guy. I never should have rented to this guy.” In the case mentioned above, after the tenant fell behind and my client started looking into his background, he learned from a previous landlord that the tenant had a prior eviction. At the time of our trial, the tenant was also under indictment for mortgage fraud and had a prior criminal conviction for possession of counterfeit government bonds.
Face it America, we are not obtaining freedom through the war we are in. We are deceived by our own government. We are blind to it’s devices. Ultimately we will be backed against a wall with no where to go. Once upon a time America was free. Our foundations were solid. We stood for honesty, integrity and truth.
