Not sure why they bought here, you may know more than me about that. I do know that one set of investors bought over 250 houses in that area. Picked
em up for $5-$10k each. Total dumps. A/C's, furnaces and hot water heaters missing. Floors rotted All kitchen and bath fixtures in need of
replacement. My job was to do the initial inspection to give them the condition of the property and go back and re-inspect after work was completed.
They RARELY came into town, Maybe once or twice the whole time. They completely rehabbed them. Very poor quality work! But new A/C's chained down to
the slab. Granite kitchen counters, and baths. I asked why they spent so much money on counters and tubs, they told me because they are virtually
indestructible. I didn't ask to many questions and as I previously stated the work was very shoddy. But they passed section 8 standards and they
rented them from anywhere between $650-$850 a month. Filled em up as fast as they completed them. This was back in 2007, before the housing crisis.
A whole lot of issues have been brought to this non-edible food fight about this one lady’s yard and it would be impossible to address them all in
one post ~ WHO, big pharma, Monsanto, agenda 21, city councils, chambers of commerce and NGO’s in general.
In my estimation, they all figure into situations like this, but when did it all start? It wasn’t all that many years ago that no one had ever heard
of HOAs and HMOs and city ordinances that infringed on the height of a taxpayer’s garden or what was parked in their private driveways or the color
of garage doors or chickens in the back yard. Or even regarding the condition of their homes if they presented no danger to anyone else. It wasn’t
even a matter of slow mission creep, all these organizations and rules were just suddenly everywhere you looked. Not to help, but to evict.
Now how could that happen if somebody
wasn’t talking and planning behind the scenes to make it all spring up so suddenly from coast to coast
and even worldwide?
I think it was back in the 80’s when cities began many eminent domain actions against lower income housing and small business areas, turning those
properties over to developers for as little as one dollar “to upgrade”, thus running the “blighters” elsewhere, adding new rules for the newly
refurbished properties and bringing more tax dollars into the city and county coffers. Many of those confiscated properties were developed
specifically as HOAs, shopping centers, malls and high rise apartments and often the developers simply vanished after the projects were completed and
their checks were cashed. Questions: who selected and awarded these contracts to the developers and who paid them? Did this idea just magically occur
to councils and commissions everywhere all at once, or was it presented to them as a full blown plan? Who was doing the presentations?
As I said much earlier, the international chamber of commerce was already well organized prior to the second world war and it was very instrumental in
setting up the UN charter and writing the rules for all of the organizations listed above, including agenda 21 (links several pages back). Now fast
forward 60 years and simply know that you can go to any city council meeting to meet the high rollers from your local chamber and likewise, if you
want to meet your city council members, go to a chamber mixer. Cozy. Just don’t ask them what they discuss together behind closed doors after
they’re through entertaining the dues-paying, know-nothing members.
Fortunately, many states and local communities are already rejecting these “smart growth”, “sustainable development”, agenda 21 principles
that can bring about the kinds of things that happened in this instance.
I don’t know
where the state of Oklahoma stands on these matters and I’m not saying Tulsa wants to drive this woman out of her home to upgrade the neighborhood
(sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?), but more people need to know what’s being done right under their own noses before something like this happens to
someone they love ~ or even themselves.
