Of course Santa Barbara isn't truly paradise. If it were, Super-Rica would never have a line, it would rain more often, and vagrants wouldn't rule our historic downtown.

The lead singer from Toad the Wett Sprocket started out working at Char West when it was located on Upper State. (The building is now gone)
Therefore, it is possible to succeed starting as a burger flipper.

Water rates, utility charges, repair costs, taxes. . . everything associated with maintaining an apartment building have been going up for years; to compensate for these massive increases, of course rents have gone up.

The profit margin on fruit is way higher than it is on rentals.
Why don't you people hate fruit salesmen too?
And what about those evil folks who sell pizza? They make 500% profit on each slice. They're the worst!

Back when American Indians were around, you could trade beads for beach front real estate. It should still be that way. I have some beads. I deserve a beach front mansion.

If you have a bad landlord, move.
If you kind can't find nice, affordable housing in Santa Barbara, move.
There are literally thousands of other cities in California alone -- hundreds of thousands of landlords to choose from.
Stop the complaining, people. It's your fault alone, nobody else's, if you're not happy.

The fact that you think landlords are evil and greedy sums you up. You live in your own deluded world. Landlords are business people just like any others.
Again, if you have a problem with legal ownership of private property, there are other countries (Cuba comes to mind) you might wish to explore.

"Everyone knows that the working class gives the most to charity as a percentage of income." -- Noletalady
Ummm. No. Everybody does not know that. But even if it were true, it doesn't matter. The big shots in SB personally support all the big charities. It's a fact.
