Oh boy howdy is there ever.
It seems a Texas judge just ruled that The Center For Disease Control stepped on it’s collective dick when it arbitrarily decided it had the power to enact an eviction moratorium.
A federal judge in Texas ruled on Thursday that an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) temporarily halting evictions amid the pandemic is unconstitutional. In a 21-page ruling, U.S. District Judge John Barker sided with a group of landlords and property managers who alleged in a lawsuit that the CDC’s eviction moratorium exceeded the federal government’s constitutional authority. “Although the COVID-19 pandemic persists, so does the Constitution,” Barker, a Trump appointee, wrote.

There are literally BILLIONS of dollars in back rent and mortgages owed to landlords across the country and MILLIONS of people who now are going to face eviction with no money to pay First and Last, plus any deposits that everyone has to come up with these days.
When we moved into this place the total bill including moving costs was close to $4500 and we didn’t have to pay for the moving truck plus we only moved about five miles away.
On top of that we had family pitch in to get it done in a hurry.
On top of everything else, the Occupancy Rates around here were at 90% and haven’t improved much since then so there aren’t that many places to move into in the first place.
Couple all this with a devastated and locked down economy and I think I am going to enjoy watching the Illegal Joe Chi Minh administration scramble to try and kick this mess down the road because we all know they are going to try and pull something out of their asses to try and deflect any responsibility for it.
