DEPRESSION-TIME RENT HIKE




What to do when The Man jacks up the rent another $110 per month?

(This is on top of April's $100-per-month raise, which comes to a $2500 or 40 percent annual increase this year).

The Bhagavad Gita says that a yogi regards equally a piece of gold or a stone.

“To the illumined man or woman, a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are the same.”


This would appear to be a stone.

At first glance, anyway.




Of course the DK's had a completely different take on things.

wow...really?! rents are down here as there are so many available...
i guess we are good landlords...we have not raised the rent on our tenant. Just can't bring myself to do it....it's all good!
