California HOA Forces Residents to
Keep Garage Doors Open to Deter Squatters

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/11/2018 4:43:39 AM

In a couple of years, my wife and I will be looking to buy a house. There are a few things we want, such as a fireplace, lots of kitchen storage, and an office for me. These are important things, but for the right house, we may be flexible on some of these. One thing we´re not budging on is no homeowners associations. Why? Well, stuff like what is taking place with one HOA in California, for one. The HOA in the Auburn Greens community of Auburn, California, found out that someone in the neighborhood had allowed someone else to live in

After the story gained national attention, the HOA has (at least temporarily) rescinded the rule.

Years ago I needed housing for a job in the Washington, DC area. Not wanting to live in a city, I purchased a townhouse in Virginia. It was my first experience with a homeowners association, and it will be the last time I ever live under such conditions. I understand why homeowner association is preceded by the word "Nazi".

All of those Auburn families then had to find another place for their twenty-something sons to live.

Florida is just as bad. One community doesn´t allow pickup trucks to be parked outside, in another you can´t remove a diseased tree without buying a permit - or waiting for the next hurricane.

From time to time, I have large beautiful wooded residential lots to dispose of. The first question from prospective buyers is always a concerned "Is there an HOA?" My answer is "No" and then the buyer is ready to continue talking.

The missing element here is in the acronym itself: HOA is Home Owners Association.

The answer almost always is to show up at the meetings and speak up as a homeowner.

In my own life I´ve avoided boards, been on boards, been president of boards (one, for 6 years). I know first hand that pettiness has no bounds, and common sense isn´t as common as you´d think.

In fact, it´s easy to see in these trivial things the impulse to control, to set 20 rules for using the laundry room, for example.

I don´t mind the public embarrassment this HOA earned, but for everyday life, the answer is to take responsibility and represent yourself in the association of your peers.

I didn´t see the squatters issue addressed in the article and surely, in California, THAT is an issue.

But there are other ways of handling it short of exposing home owners to possible theft and break ins (Every door to the house from a garage that I have ever been in is an inside door... easier to break thru than your typical storm/outside door.)

Someone should file a suit.

We took #6 advice six months ago and haven´t regretted it one bit.

HOAs are inherently coercive and amazingly have been granted powers from the state legislatures. Therefore to roll back HOAs you are going to have a political fight on your hands.

I´ve been on an HOA board, and as far as being involved in HOA matters it unfortunately means that a number of these involved homeowners have collectivist expectations and want to hand over matters of personal responsibility to the HOA. The association in turn, will be more than happy to take them on to gain more power. The petty nature of property owners´ complaints/initiatives makes you wonder how they became functioning adults. And that is the crux of the problem.

The biggest problems with HOA´s are when the homeowners decide to pay management to a "management company" (because they can´t be bothered to run it themselves). HOA Management Companies are largely unaccountable (fill in the blank).

Which is better?
1. Ed, We´ve noticed that your yard is getting a bit rough, could you use a hand getting things cleaned up a bit?

or

2. Notice for the Homeowner´s Association: You have 7 days to have your yard in compliance with association rules. Failure to comply will result in a fine of $50 per day until your yard is on compliance.

I´ve been on the Board of our HOA for many, many years and can state without reservation that our HOA has earned the respect of our homeowners, and been run with utmost efficiency.

The purpose of an HOA is not to "play god" or attempt to micromanage someone´s garden, but to maintain common areas and improve property values in the association. One must read the CC&Rs very carefully before signing a contract for a home in an HOA.

We also have a Property Management company doing the day to day operation of our HOA, and it´s been great. The PM guy can´t do a thing without Board approval first. The larger the HOA the more difficult it becomes for homeowners to manage it. While many volunteer, few show up to do work. Every homeowner has the opportunity to get on a Board and make a difference. Don´t whine, get involved.

I´d not want to live in a neighborhood without an HOA, simply because I´ve lived in neighborhoods where property values slid because some twit saw no reason why it wasn´t OK for him to park his dually truck in his front yard, or to paint his garage door red to send a statement to other neighbors. We also had a squatter next door who kept his Porsche in the garage but when he was discovered, left the place with nothing bolted down. It was ransacked. This open door approach may not be the best method, but until you´ve tried to solve problems like this, don´t throw stones.

HOA management companies can nickel-and-dime the association.
The condo owner received letters from the management company that he left his broom on the patio (at the back of his condo). He also received a letter to replace his mailbox because the other 3 condo owners in his area had upgraded their mailboxes.
Every letter sent is a service fee to the HOA.

HOAs are perfect places for liberal fascists to gather. They can´t grasp the notions of private property or freedom. If they´re really concerned about property values, why are they importing millions of thieves?

Schumer listened to the resistance — and lost badly
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/23/2018 4:32:07     Post Reply
Chuck Schumer started a government shutdown he couldn’t finish. The New York Democrat, among the shrewdest operators in national politics, stumbled badly because he succumbed to the siren song of the anti-Trump Resistance. He believed any charge could be made to stick to President Trump, no matter how implausible, and chose the dictates of an inflamed Democratic base over common sense. His embarrassing climbdown after a short, mostly weekend shutdown shows the limits of the Resistance. Yes, an anti-Trump midterm wave appears to be building and Democratic activists — marching in the streets by the thousands and badgering Republicans at town-hall meetings

Ralph McClintock wasn’t even supposed to be on the mission that changed his life. Out of duty to both his country and sense of curiosity, the young U.S. Navy communications technician volunteered to fill a vacant spot on the USS Pueblo’s mission in the waters off North Korea in January of 1968. “I took the job because I wanted know what the North Koreans did and I wanted to see the enemy up close,” McClintock told Fox News. “The mission was only supposed to last 22 days.” Instead of lasting 22 days, McClintock and 82 other Pueblo crew members would spend 11 grueling

Hours after Houthi militants in Yemen launched a new missile at Saudi Arabia on December 19, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, took her blue seat at the horseshoe-shaped table of the Security Council. “Thankfully,” she said, “the missile was intercepted before it could hit its intended target,” which apparently was a palace in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. “But the very fact of this attack is a flashing red siren for this council.” Backed by Iran, Haley said, the Houthis have fired missiles at civilians before. “Unless we act,” she warned, the latest one “won’t be the

   

 



 
How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense.

The Hollywood Tide Turns on Woody Allen

Woody Allen won an Academy Award, the fourth of his career, just six years ago for writing Midnight in Paris. He was nominated again two years later for Blue Jasmine, a film that won Cate Blanchett a Best Actress Oscar. The last year that Allen didn’t release a movie in theaters that he wrote and directed was 1981. Despite the controversy that has dogged him since the early 1990s—when he was revealed to be having an affair with his girlfriend’s daughter and was subsequently accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow—Allen has continued to make movies with the same

You wouldn´t know these were boom times with the stock market at all-time highs and unemployment near all-time lows if you were in the nation´s capital. Washington, D.C., is a city of hate. When you visit, it appears no one can stand each other. The two political sides are at each other´s throats so constantly it´s hard to imagine they sleep. Maybe they don´t.

Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has abandoned objective journalism to cultivate obsessive hatred for President Donald Trump. It has “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once distinguished broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit TV show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie, literally jumped over a shark while water skiing with his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and

The partial shutdown of the U.S. government that started Saturday is a testament to the inability of our two major political parties to do anything but kowtow to their respective bases, and their failure to sit down together to work out a deal. Isn´t it great? Far from being an embarrassment, these shutdowns show regular Americans, wielding only the power to vote in national elections every two years, are kings and queens of the realm. Look what politicians will do for a vote. Democrats will let the government shut down just to show their allegiance to the Dreamers. Republicans will let it shut

It has been nearly a month since Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code since the 1980s. Of the 185-page bill’s many provisions, perhaps the most consequential is a reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Among the tax bill’s leading opponents was Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who was scathing in her denunciation of what she called the “GOP Tax Scam.” Shortly before the final vote, she delivered a blistering speech on the Senate floor. “Today is

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents.

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight

It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview

Welcome to what’s arguably the nation’s largest infrastructure project and California’s biggest boondoggle. The highly hyped bullet train has been a challenge from the start. No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers.
