The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners.
The people that live in the house did not earn the house, but were loaned
the property from the true owners, the taxpayers.
Because of this, the residents do not have the "pride of ownership" that comes with the hard work necessary.
In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent their benefactors because
the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves did not earn the right
to live in the house.
They do not appreciate the value of the property and see no
need to maintain or respect it in any way.
The result is the same whether you are talking about a studio apartment or a
magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques. If the people who live there do not
feel they earned the privilege, they will make this known through their actions.
The picture below illustrates the point…
The Resolute Desk was built from the timbers of the HMS Resolute
and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes.
It is considered a national treasure and icon of the presidency.
Mr. Obama, with all due respect, get your F@k#n feet off our desk!
As a matter of fact, get the hell out of the peoples' house and take your arrogant staff with you.
