    It sounded more to me like "I want what you have so give it to me so I can destroy you."

    This is a consequence of freedom, people will say things you don't like. But you sound just like one of these entitled protestors, crying about his we should infringe upon assembly and protest because you don't like what is being said. I suggest you learn to accept the repercussions of freedom.
    You think it is OK for people to vomit on apublic transport vehicle? They all should have been arrested for that and tested for comunicable diseases.

That's not an easy task in that housing market. This boom has uprooted a lot of folks that do not or can not have the jobs that pay enough to sustain their living arrangements. There are many parts of North Dakota's economy that cannot keep up with the oil sector and we do not have enough housing to deal with the growth. That's just reality down here.
    It sounds like the problem is greedy landlords.

    Why? Because IT DOESN'T WORK!!!
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    No it hasn't. Only truer forms of socialism have failed due to a lack of the subjective value of morals for free.

    But, true AnCaps don't exist either.

    We here are not a pure "Capitalist" society, that's true. But, there is a balance, and tilting too far one way or the other is a recipe for failure.

    We have a mixed-market economy. I believe supply side economics should be supplying us with better governance at lower cost.

    It can work under a totalitarian system of government when all human rights and freedoms are removed. And it's surprising how many people are attracted to totalitarian governments, though often only for others. Cuba might be a good example of that phenomenon.
