The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners. The people who live in the house did not earn the house, but were merely loaned the property by the actual owners, the taxpayers. Because of this, the residents do not have the “pride of ownership”. That comes with the hard work necessary to become owners. In fact, quite the opposite happens.
The residents resent their benefactors, because the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves have not earned the right to live in the house. They neither appreciate the value of the property nor understand the need to maintain or respect it in any way. The result is the same, whether one is talking about either a studio apartment or a magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques. If the people who live there do not feel they’ve earned the privilege of occupancy, they will make this obvious through their actions.
The desk, built from timbers of the HMS Resolute and a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes Is considered a national treasure and icon of the presidency. The White House belongs to the people of America. Its treasures should NOT be used by ANYONE for a foot rest..! These photos, ongoing proof that this man has no class whatsoever, All show an innate disrespect for our White House.
