Q: I'd like to sue Barack Obama for giving 150 billion dollars of american tax payer dollars to Iran, without consent.

Since there are close to 250-300 million american workers that would bring my share to around 4.2 million dollars. I'd like to be compensated, since this was done without consent. Is there a lawyer who will take my case?

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 13, 2018

No. If there had been I'm sure it would have been done. There are a number of reasons way too long for me to give you.

Consider a similar thought--can someone sue the Congress for giving over a trillion dollars in tax breaks to wealthy people? No, that's what they do.

Q: Can I use a dog pen as an enclosure instead of a chain link fence as required in the rules.

This rule is so that they can extort money out of tenants and charge them or raise their rent. They do this every year when tenants get their energy assistance money. They try to take is from them. There are numerous trailers without the required fence and some use boards and and wood fencing.
