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.
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 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, you are not in a hut in
Kenya, or public housing in Chicago. With all due respect, get your *****
feet off our desk!
