Oh no! People doing what they want with their own private property... boo hoo, we should petition the government to make sure hotels are protected.
@big freedom, and give the hotels and these airbnbs tons of money for bailouts! Yaaay! You know the airlines are suffering too! Bail them out! The banks that are too big to fail need a bailout while we're at it! And the coal and oil industry! They all need bailouts! Hurry!
Oh look. We have a deficit. Where'd that come from? Oh well, next guys problem. Politician x out!
@mas2de, where do you live? I want to hug you and bring you tacos!
@mas2de, if a company fails, it fails. The government should never bail any company out. Ever.
@TheSecretSavage, that ship sailed about a decade ago. Company failed to prepare for hard times? Company going under would also cause some issues for a lot of people? Company is also now essentially considered a person as far as legislators are concerned, because Citizens United, because That totally makes sense.
You can expect that company to be standing inline for taxpayer dollars courtesy of their friends in DC. And we can expect legislators to give it to them. What do they care? It's not their dollar. Might as well make their good time buddies happy.
I agree with you. Yes, it might be hard for some people and some businesses. That's how it is. We didn't become the foremost world power by giving out $B handouts to big corps when they messed up, but we've sure fallen pretty far while doing it.
I hear NFL players are still renting them.
@RogueKnight, I hear those nfl players have orgies with their bros and get caught by their wives
@Ray213, yeah. I wouldn't do that even if someone held a gun to my head.
@RogueKnight, at an orgy a gun to the head may be the least of your worries.
@RogueKnight, I wouldn’t either if the someone who held the gun to my head had friends with knives ready on standby
@TheAnderson, I know. I'd hate to imagine what the cleaning fees would be for the Airbnb rental!
@Ray213, don't kink shame!
@Ray213, you have piqued my interest
@Ray213, you fvck around in the flock, the wifey comes after you with the Glock!
I work in construction, and whenever we're out of town it's AirBnB now cos all the hotels are shutdown.
Long live unregulated people!
We found a place that was redone right before all of this and was originally a successful bed and breakfast. We want to rent it out on AirBnB enough each month to pay the mortgage so that we can retire in it when we're older. So it's not like we want to start a whole business out of it or anything. But I do have to laugh seeing all the people that did throw their savings into this and bought up properties just to lose it all. They knew what they were getting into.
