Get this, Guru. A woman has been charged for collecting rent on a home that she doesn't own. This dumbass Obama voter says that she owns the home through "adverse possession" because the real owners left it empty. She's collected 17K from two unsuspecting renters. She's out on 5k bail. I think her bail should be at least 17k, think? I bet this is going on all over the country in this Obama economy.
Do you have a link for this story. Adverse possession usually depends on another property owner using and or occupying a section of someone else's property for a number of years.

I just read about it and don't remember where today. I read news from all over the place, don't watch tv at all.. Could have been the L.A Times, but I think it actually happened in Florida. Should have asked me yesterday, I had her name and everything. I don't know how to link either. I don't know if her adverse possession case was valid, but she was arrested for charging rent to the couple that moved into the house. Pretty funny, actually.

...they have to have had open and notorious possession and have to have been there for years, and paid the property taxes, etc. before they can sue for AP. You don't just get the house because you broke in and live there. By the way...if someone is encroaching on your land just give them permission in writing and record it. That nullifies them getting it later. But make sure you see a GOOD real estate attorney first. The last thing you want to do is screw it up.

Anyone know the law on this in Hawaii? Some would have you believe that if you have a good tan, curly black hair and your name starts with the letter K you own everything.

You started to make some sense then you flowed into the notorious guru from LA. Most states have different criteria to qualify for adverse possession. Since Joe Balls doesn't have the link....

Obama’s Agenda Seen as Dead in the Water by Republicans

Speaker of the House John Boehner speaks during an interview at his Capitol office, in Washington on Feb. 13, 2013. Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and rank-and-file Republicans opposed many of the details Obama set out in his second-term agenda.

President Barack Obama last night called for a higher minimum wage and stricter gun laws, proposed making preschool available to all 4-year-olds, and asked Congress to rewrite U.S. immigration law.

Obama's Own Words on Middle Class, Economy, Budget

Feb. 13 (Bloomberg)-- President Barack Obama speaks about the U.S. middle class, economy and budget negotiations between lawmakers. Obama, speaking last night in the first State of the Union address since winning re-election, called for raising the federal minimum wage and warned he’ll use executive powers to get his way if Congress doesn't act.(Excerpts. Source: Bloomberg)

Today Republicans in Congress made clear that little of it will happen.

House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and rank-and-file Republicans opposed many of the details Obama set out in his second-term agenda in his State of the Union address to Congress. They signaled that the political fights of the past aren’t over yet.

Boehner dismissed the president’s proposal to raise the federal minimum wage. Republicans also gave a negative response to Obama’s call for new legislation to curb greenhouse-gas emissions that scientists say drives global warming.

“When you raise the price of employment, guess what happens? You get less of it,” Boehner, an Ohio Republican, told reporters at a news conference today in Washington.“Why do we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people?”

In his speech last night to a joint session of Congress, Obama proposed raising the hourly federal minimum wage to its highest inflation-adjusted value since 1981, under President Ronald Reagan, according to a White House fact sheet.

Obama’s speech was a “go-through-the motions laundry list of things” he’d “like to do,” said South Dakota Senator John Thune, a member of the chamber’s Republican leadership.
‘Won’t Pass’

“Minimum wage won’t pass the House, climate-change won’t pass the House,” Thune said.“Those are things he would probably have a hard time getting a lot of Democrats to vote for.”

The same is true for Obama’s call for guaranteeing pre- school programs for all 4-year-olds, he said.“How do you pay for it?” he said. By saying the programs wouldn’t “add a single dime to the deficit” Obama is expecting Congress to raise taxes “to finance all these new programs,” he said.

Senate Democrats seeking re-election next year in states that supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 “are going to be hard pressed to vote for” new tax revenue beyond increases that have been passed, Thune said.

The president also urged Congress to pass immigration legislation and stricter gun-control measures and asked for $50 billion in infrastructure spending.
‘Liberal Boilerplate’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell today called Obama’s speech a “liberal boilerplate that any Democratic lawmaker could have given at any time in recent memory.”

“He advocated tax reform, but mostly as a way to increase the size of government,...

lol...part 2

"... not as a way to increase our competitiveness,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said in a floor speech.“He spoke of workers’ minimum wages, instead of their maximum potential.”

The speaker’s comments on Obama’s proposal to raise the hourly minimum wage to $9 from $7.25 by the end of 2015 reflected a longstanding Republican argument that such increases only depress employment among young and low-skilled workers.

The last federal minimum-wage increase was in 2009, the first year of Obama’s presidency, though it came out of a 2007 law signed by President George W. Bush. A new increase would affect an estimated 15 million people. Obama also suggested making the minimum wage rise with the cost of living.

Boehner signaled an increase had little prospect of passing the Republican-controlled House."
