U.S. on Verge of 50% Households Takeing Payments from Govt.

http://online.wsj.com

The U.S. is now on the verge of a symbolic threshold: the point at which more than half of all American households receive and accept transfer benefits from the government. Within living memory, the federal government has become an entitlements machine. As a day-to-day operation, it devotes more attention and resources to the public transfer of money, goods and services to individual citizens than to any other objective, spending more than for all other ends combined.

Retiree's rental cottage legal since 1976 deemed illegal

http://www.montereyherald.com

Milligan said the year her guest cottage was remodeled — 1975 — her neighborhood was zoned R-2, allowing duplexes. The year she bought the house — 1976 — the area was rezoned single-family residential. Her unit, she said, should at least be grandfathered in. Milligan said the complaint filed with the city came from the mother of a disgruntled tenant who lives in another part of the state. Neighbors have not complained. "I was told by Ms. Burgess I had to get a demolition permit and have it taken out."
