    Holy cow, I forgot but now I remember that! :-)

    Nothing has changed and I completely stand by that. The question is, how and when is a property deemed abandoned, and if actually abandoned, at what point can it be homesteaded by another in order to put said land to use?

    I have to admit that I have no clear answer to that, but it is something to ponder.

    Clearly that is not reasonable and his actions on his property will have a direct effect on the neighboring properties.

    In a high trust, high IQ, homogenous society an honest man would not entertain such an idea and a dishonest one would be sued, without government zoning or heavy handed restrictions.

    But that is not what we live in any more, and as more cabrons like Juan Carlos there invade and cover the nation in the unwholesome third world flood, we'll see more and more of that, and more and more heavy handed restrictions on what you can do with your property.

    That is, until the Marxists have enough power and arm the invaders and appropriate all private property and savings, like Hugo Chavez did.

    I am of the mind that, unless you have clear title and ownership has been passed legitimately from one entity to you, then you are not the owner.

    Let those properties that are truly abandoned, be taken into a town or charitable management trust to be maintained and put up for sale.

    AF, please leave immigrants out of this. IMO it is muddying up the conversation. At what point is property deemed abandoned if the owner is nowhere to found [dead for all I know] and it is disintegrating into nothing while directly and negatively affecting property owners in that local vicinity? Do you just live with it, with no award of damages to your property?


    Let those properties that are truly abandoned, be taken into a town or charitable management trust to be maintained and put up for sale.
    Why let government take control of it, and who would get that money upon sale???

    But see, that is not being reasonable.

    To allow your own home to burn down, because you were not there to give firemen the permission to cross your property to fight the original fire, in your neighbor's house, is more than unreasonable.

    That's cutting off your nose to spite...no, that is tearing your whole face off to prove a ideological point that is, at it's core, unreasonable.

    The fact that I reside here and did not abandon my home, if it were to burn and affect other property owners, I would be fully liable for damages. Once again, my goodness, we are talking about abandonment.

    I answered the question as to what to do about truly abandoned property that is a public menace.

    I recall, years ago when I was living in Palm Beach, there was a notorious ghetto and a row of crack houses on a street called Tamarind Ave.

    The crime, murder and mayhem got so out of control the county sheriff hired an excavating firm, condemned all the shacks on the whole street and had them drive three CAT D-9s right down the center of it and leveled the whole damn thing down to bare sand. That's an extreme solution, but it worked.

    It doesn't have to be government, like I said, it could be a charitable trust.

    But this problem can be easily solved, without giving the green light to the invading army to just start squatting in every house that has some uncut grass or peeling paint.

    I understand that you are looking for a solution or answer to address true abandonment, and I think I have.

    But in the fire example that were talking about, there are many things in life that can not ever be replaced by a damage claim check.

    What priceless heirlooms might have gone up or family pets...the list is endless.

    Here, there are buildings which are completely dilapidated. Lot's of them, in fact. They have been abandoned for years. Once in while, somebody comes along, pays the buck to buy it, completely renovates it, and then sells it for profit. Recently, a community group of people took over quite a few of those homes and are currently renovating them in order to donate them to low-income locals. I've seen a few of them finished and done, and it appears that the low-income folks are actually appreciative and taking good care of them. They have brought values up so obviously that is good for the community.

    I haven't looked at the tax-rates or anything, or what jobs those folks are working, but at least some are taking interest in improving the community.

    Sorry to take the thread off-topic, I'm still wondering at what point is something considered abandoned while respecting private property rights [not looking for government requirements/solutions].

    That's the problem with folks who don't read context, and selectively section out parts they want to hear while disregarding the rest. I shouldn't even have to state that I am a full believer/supporter of private property rights and contract rights, I have posted many times concerning that topic.

    Did you even bother to read the conversation? In a nut shell:

    Yep. I'm carving out that specific point in order to avoid having to write a 13,000-word essay to respond to everything. I also sometimes do that to, when it's worthwhile.

    The point I'm trying to highlight isn't about your beliefs, rather, it's about the beliefs of Americans, generally. It is widely held that "the public" has many "property claims" in the private property of individuals (and corporations). This is the legal foundation on which most Marxist policy stands. In certain jurisdictions, based on zoning, you may have a "property right" to the sunlight falling on your house, meaning, your neighbors cannot construct any structure so tall that it would obstruct your sunlight. But this property right itself is actually saleable, and so a mega-corp developer that wants to build a high-rise can purchase the sunlight-rights from the surrounding properties onto which the high-rise will cast its shadow. As it stands, there is nothing opposed to property-rights since all buyers of real estate in that area know that that's how the rules of real estate are structured in that specific market. The problem is that the State has the power to ex post facto rewrite those rules, and when their private-sector buddies grease their palms well enough, that's exactly what happens. The effect of whatever that rule-change happens to be, is that the values of the properties held by their buddies skyrocket. And all of this is possible because we have a flawed belief that the State (or "the public") has some kind of ill-defined "property right" in anyone's private property whenever it decides to. In short, the zoning planners have the authority to simply remove the sunlight-rights of people living in a particular zone by a simple wave of the administrative wand. And when the palms of such planners are sufficiently well-greased to that end, that's exactly what happens. Thus, we see that this principle of the general-public having some kind amorphous and unbounded property right in the private property of all citizens is the legal foundation of Marxist tyranny. Today, it's sunlight rights we seize. Tomorrow, it's just the entire property deed itself. It's a sliding scale that goes from "eyesore" laws to State ownership of all property.

    Well said, I don't disagree with any of that. But, just to clarify, the topic that I was focusing on had to to with legitimate abandonment of property. And if said property was legitimately abandoned, what rights do I have to homestead it, as well as so-called "squatters" who put that property to use. To clarify: I am not speaking about squatters who squat on non-abandoned land.

    See, that's it. As usual, it doesn't matter what the law says when the system ignores it. Same thing happening with the border. Same thing happening with really dangerous and violent criminals.

    I have a friend who married into a wealthy Costa Rican family and she lived down there for 20 years. She came back to the US because she said stealing is considered okay in Latin America and virtually everything has to be nailed down. Though there are laws against it, the police and prosecutors look the other way because it's just accepted that you grab what you can, when you can, and good for you. So, my friend's husband owned some land down there and his brother built a house on it and nobody caught and it became his. Caused a big $#@!storm in the family. When you talk about open land that nobody is checking up on, I could see a situation like that happening. Use it or lose it. Now, in some states where mineral rights are a big thing, I could also see the adverse possession attempt not working out but, maybe, if the mineral rights are underground the squatter would be in the clear since they're on top. Dunno! Glad I don't have to worry about it. My husband and I dealt with a near squatter situation and it was awful.

    When I said here, I meant the vicinity, Youngstown, the next town over across the line. Years ago where I worked, all one could hear were gun shots on a day to day basis, per capita worse than even Detroit. Since then the crime has gone down and there is interest in revitalizing the area. Back in the day there were shot up homes that were going for an average $500-$1,500, but nobody in their right mind would touch them. Owners were either killed or simply fled without selling, a perfect example of abandonment. Very recently, some of the homes were able to be restored, others had to be completely torn down and built from the ground up. On occasion when I ride past the area I see more of those properties being revitalized.

    Taxes there are still on the high side due to being in the city, as compared to surrounding townships where taxes are lower but home cost is high. The city auctioned some of them off, other homes/properties investors offer to take possession for pennies on the dollar. As far as taxes, I've never heard of anybody being able to escape that, other than previous owners who bolted and left everything behind.

    As far as squatters, I'm sure there are some, but are they really squatters if the property was truly abandoned? I guess in a sense they are, but then I tend to view that as homesteading ;-)

    I knew someone who bought a HUD house for a dollar. Had to bring it up to code. He is a carpenter and did a great job. Didn't save the neighborhood, though, because it was hood and still is. My bf and I lived a block over with crack hoes across the street and kids in diapers out at midnight. Lost cause.

    So, it sounds like you're in the "rust belt" and I can see there being a lot of abandoned homes. Maybe whole towns. Gary Indiana probably has tons! I think getting involved in taking on any kind of property like is for people in their 20s because it's so much work.

    Yep, good ol' rust belt, not long ago one of the few places where one could buy a nice home cheaper than a car lol.

    A close friend of mine (who used to post on this forum) bought up a few homes on the very cheap in the Youngstown area, remodeled them and rented them out. It was a decent profit for a while, but he since sold them and kept one just to have. Opportunities are there in the dive areas if one is willing to wait for the rebound, but, that's not for me.

    But see, that is not being reasonable.

    To allow your own home to burn down, because you were not there to give firemen the permission to cross your property to fight the original fire, in your neighbor's house, is more than unreasonable.

    That's cutting off your nose to spite...no, that is tearing your whole face off to prove a ideological point that is, at it's core, unreasonable.
    The fact that I reside here and did not abandon my home, if it were to burn and affect other property owners, I would be fully liable for damages. [...]
    That is a bizarre and roundabout way of expressing property rights and liability. No sane and reasonable polity would ever adopt or apply such a policy.

    Instead of expecting the firefighters to let other peoples' homes burn (with you being held liable afterwards for the damage done to others' property, due to your denial of access), they should just do whatever they need to do in order to put the fires out (with them being held liable afterwards for any damage done to your property, due to their refusal of your denial of access) - especially given that any damage done to your property by the firefighters seems likely to be far less than the damage done to others' property by the fire.

    As I described to AF when he mentioned this particular hypothetical scenario a month or so ago, the complete and utter craziness of the idea that firefighters ought to just let peoples' homes burn is what happens when the NAP is improperly abused by misapplying it preemptively, rather than properly used by applying it reactively:

    That is self defeating political autism, usually accompanied by screeching.
    LOL

    That is a phenomenon with which I am all too familiar. It's a kind of more-libertarian-than thou "macho flashing" (e.g., "why, I am so libertarian that [fill in the blank with some provocatively bizarre and truculent stance regarding some unusual hypothetical scenario]").

    I suspect this occurs due to the unfortunate habit many fervent libertarian ideologues have of applying the principles of libertarian theory in general (and the Non-Aggression Principle in particular) in a moralistically preemptive way, rather than in a legalistically reactive way (as should be done instead [1]).



    [1] I touched upon the basics of the significance of this distinction in this post from a few years ago - regarding which see footnote [3] in particular. For example, in your "fire response" scenario, the responders should just say "to hell with that!", drag their hoses across his property anyway, put out the fire, and then be held accountable for any damages they caused to his property (plus some token fine or such in any case - because they did, after all, violate his property rights [2], even if they didn't do any damage). The NAP affords people the freedom to be "autistic" idiots - but it should never be autistically (ab)used to let them foist the consequences of their idiocy upon others.

    [2] Assuming, of course, that there are no preexisting easements, rights-of-way, or other contractual encumbrances that permit them access to or across his property, even if he doesn't like it.

    It may be bizarre, and not sane and reasonable, but if one is cemented in principle, it is absolutely their right to do so. Of course in a real-life situation of which was inferred, I would be appreciative if said fireman attempted to put out the fire.

    But, say I live out in the boonies and have a structure (size doesn't matter). Not too far from others, but not too close either (let's say 3 acres on all sides). A month ago I informed my neighbors what my intentions are. One neighbor doesn't feel comfortable with what I want to do, so I ensure them that I have money to cover any/all very unlikely damages. I invest money into product and spread it over the structure in order to burn it down. My goal is to gather the cinder/ashes and using rented equipment, either bury it or haul it away, all at my expense. While the structure is burning, I walk a couple of acres down to grab a cup of coffee and a smoke, and upon my return, I discover that the uncomfortable neighbor has called the fire department and they put the fire out. Now it is up to me to re-purchase everything, including rental equipment, wait how long for it to dry out, in order to start the process over again.

    Being one who lives out in the boonies and doesn't believe in paying for permission from government strangers (permits), who reimburses me? The neighbor (she didn't actually put out the fire, she merely reported it, either out of concern or maybe just conveniently forgot), the fire department (for acting on a report for the sake of concerned neighbor) or me? Should I then go into town and seek the help of government? Pay the fees? Hire attorneys? Leave it up to strangers to decide on my behalf? Aiding in the growth of government?

    The luxury apartment, characterized by its direct elevator access into the living space, highlighted the privacy and exclusivity of the residence, juxtaposing the violation that occurred within its walls.

    The suspects stole Vitel's Lexus, which was spotted crossing the George Washington Bridge, according to officials. They crashed it in Lower Paxton Township, Pennsylvania.

    Local police, upon responding to the incident, did not immediately connect the vehicle to the New York killing because they didn't run the plate, the NYPD says.

    If they had, "they would have seen that we had a felony alarm on the car for being stolen and wanted in connection with a homicide," Kenny said.

    The pair who crashed the stolen Lexus are believed to be in their 20s. It wasn't immediately clear when the crash happened. They were seen on camera leaving the East 31st Street apartment hours after Vitel was seen walking in.

    I wonder how the squatters knew the apartment was vacant. Sounds like someone who worked in the building tipped them off or is one of them.
    My two daughters and I were gang-raped by some of the Newcomers. It landed us in the hospital for 3 weeks as several bones were broken. I don't blame them, it was a sexual emergency and I wasn't about to go all white privilege and deny them the release they needed, especially after being stuck in a hotel for months. I see the Newcomers as family now. They are on our side and will help us stop Trump. It is a small price to pay. Anything but Trump.

    Two unidentified individuals were captured on surveillance footage leaving a Manhattan apartment just days before the 52-year-old tenant’s body was found stuffed in a duffel bag in her closet, police sources said Friday.

    The pair, described as a black male and a black female both in their 20s, were then spotted getting into the dead woman’s Lexus SUV with New York license plates and driving west on East 31st Street.

    Just after 2 p.m. that day, the two unidentified individuals were seen in the complex’s lobby trying to enter the building.

    About an hour later, an elevator surveillance camera saw the duo entering Vitel’s apartment.

    we don't have a crime problem in america. we have just one problematic group of people who don't seem to know any other way than violence and hate. without those people, america is so much better off. scott adams was so correct. if you can, stay away from them.

    I am of that race and I don’t blame you or disagree with your comment, because everything you stated is factual. I am not going to play the victim here , and some in our community are quick to blame other races for the constant criminal acts committed by ppl who look like me. I don’t blame anyone saying stay far away from us , even myself avoid some of us. I hope they catch them soon and throw away the key. Bring back stop and frisk.

    You want us to call with any information, so post pictures of the suspects.

    More on the TikTok squatter from Venezuela:


    In one video aimed at aspiring beggars, he recounts panhandling for money on the highway. In another, he uses his baby, an essential influencer prop — adorning her with a sign to ask for cash. Also in his repertoire: WIC scams and how to get a free phone from the government.

    “I don’t like to work. Work is for slaves, kids … Don’t humiliate yourself,” Moreno says in a video.

    “I confess that I don’t like to work because it gives me allergies,” he claims in another. “You work, I don’t, but in the end, neither of us have money. They keep criticizing us because I live off of taxes that you pay monthly.”

    He has railed against the possibility of TikTok shuttering and, despite many love letters to Joe Biden — whom he calls “mi papa” — Moreno warns that he will mobilize Latino voters away from the candidate if his precious platform is restricted.

    Predictably, he’s not a fan of Donald Trump.

    Moreno seems to have a knack for seizing on headlines, like the numerous infuriating stories of squatters locking owners out of their own homes.

    I’m convinced his real job is simply being a provocateur.

    He certainly is skilled at getting our attention and getting under our skin. Since he last month urged his fellow countrymen to unite behind a 15-year-old Venezuelan migrant who allegedly fired at cops and blasted a Times Square tourist in the leg, his TikTok following has swelledbymore than 200,000 followers.

    Somehow Moreno manages to embody every trope collectively ascribed to interlopers pouring across the border — a “bad hombre” straight out of central casting.

    Venezuelan immigrant Daniel Di Martino, now a fellow at the Manhattan Institute who came to the US in 2016, believes Moreno is a wannabe: a world-class opportunistic “clown” making his mark by antagonizing.

    “People will comment, share and quote when they are angry,” Di Martino told me. “He finds whatever will outrage people. He has created the perfect character to be hated. He steals, he teaches people how to become dependent on the government.”

    Whether Moreno is a Latino Robin Hood, a skilled comedian or an agent of chaos, Di Martino said, “It’s bad because he’s promoting terrible things.”

    Whatever the case, there’s no doubt that the joke is on all of us and our lax policies. The rest of the world is laughing.
