Man Who Rented His Home On Airbnb Returns To Find An Orgy

Man Who Rented His Home On Airbnb Returns To Find An Orgy

“airbnb is usually a wonderful service and the vetting system usually works well--including the reviews similar to Yelp! People have to look in between the lines of reviews though because even if all reviews are "positive" there are short positives and longer, more truthful positives. A short positive may be someone who does not like confrontation and so does not want to say anything bad. Or many will decline to review at all rather than give a negative review. I swore by airbnb for my last summer in Europe, am doing so again for my next summer in Europe and rent out two homes over airbnb successfully as well.”

“Yet Nancy Pelosi headed one of the most productive Congressional sessions ever. Go Figure. The TPs were hired to destroy government, not work for the people, by the people, it seems. "Let's see how many laws we can repeal, like Roe v Wade, Affordable Healthcare, etc." Then if we cannot repeal them, let's not let anything else go through.
And let's make certain the government and Obama fails and everything he has passed, such as the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act collapses. There is such a corrupt and tight link between our "elected" (bought and paid for) officials and business to make sure anything that does not allow them free reign to gouge people, will be turned into something that does. For example, the insurance companies are purposely cancelling insurance that does not "comply" with Obamacare, if it does not have pediatric coverage for people like seniors, etc. What kind of idiocy is this? I talked to a couple who had their coverage canvelled and prices more than doubled because they had no pediatric coverage. They are 62 years old! This is a loophole that is being exploited to make Obamacare fail, and it's working. We need to fire them all and get our people mojo back from the corporatists who took it!”

“if i pay 350 busks a month for health insurance i would expect that i get health insurance.
many insurance plans out there are not even close to being health insuarnce policies.
some do not cover hospital and trauma.
mental health,and some even allow only two doctor visits per year in their "health insurance policies".
that is why ACA is demanding that all health insurance cover the basics and some do not so they will not be allowed to be sold to unsuspecting customers.
but the repub-lickins complained so long about some policies being cancelled that part was delayed a year.....too bad the repub-lickin congress did not explain why those policies were nbeing cancelled.”

“this is a private company refusing to maintain safety precautions. Why should the public pay for their negligence. They should be made to pay--I would think it would be at the least, manslaughter and some kind of gross negligence.”
