Es sollte einfacher sein, mit der Mietpreisbremse auf eigene Faust eine Mietsenkung zu erwirken und dadurch das mietlimbo zu verhindern, bei welchem die Mieten jedes Mal weiter steigen, wenn eine Wohnung weitergegeben wurde, ohne, dass gegen zu hohe Mieten angefochten wurde.
Hierbei hilft der mietlimbo-Assistent, indem er alle Sonderfälle überprüft und für eine bestimmte Wohnung den kritischen Wert ortsübliche Vergleichsmiete + 10 Prozent berechnet, auf den die Miete gesenkt werden kann.
Obwohl die Software bereits fertig entwickelt ist, kann ich mietlimbo im Moment noch nicht veröffentlichen, da das Rechtsdienstleistungsgesetz dies nur zulässt, wenn ich vorher alle Inhalte von einem Anwalt habe prüfen lassen. Daher suche ich im Moment nach einem Kooperationspartner, der mir hiermit hilft. Hast du eine Idee, wer das sein könnte? Dann schreibe mir gerne an oder @ciex

A Historic Tax Heist - The New York Times
With barely a vote to spare early Saturday morning, the Senate passed a tax bill confirming that the Republican leaders’ primary goal is to enrich the country’s elite at the expense of everybody else, including future generations who will end up bearing the cost. The approval of this looting of the public purse by corporations and the wealthy makes it a near certainty that President Trump will sign this or a similar bill into law in the coming days.

'A tale of decay': the Houses of Parliament are falling down | News | The Guardian
Away from the grand chambers of the House of Commons and House of Lords, away from the lofty corridors, away from the imposing committee rooms with their carved doors, the palace is tatty, dirty and infested with vermin. Its lavatories stink, its drains leak. Some of the external stonework has not been cleaned since it was built in the 1840s, and is encrusted with a thick coat of tarry black that is eating away at the masonry. Inside the building, intricate fan vaulting is flaking off, damaged by seeping rainwater and leaking pipes. Its Gothic-revival artworks are decaying: in the Lords chamber, the once-golden sculptures of the barons who signed the Magna Carta are now dull grey, pitted and corroded.

Beyond its state of disrepair, the building is all too obviously a remnant of a predemocratic age. It was built not to welcome its populace in, but to impress them with its fortress-like grandeur. It was designed when women were, at best, crinoline-wearing spectators of parliamentary life, consigned to the public gallery. With its chilly colonnades of sculptures of male politicians, its heavy, ecclesiastical furnishings and gentlemen’s-club atmosphere, it provides the perfect stage-set for Britain’s “very aggressive, very masculine, very power-hoarding democracy”, as political scientist Matthew Flinders put it.

Counterterrorism Mission Creep
One of the assurances I keep hearing about the U.S. government's spying on American citizens is that it's only used in cases of terrorism. Terrorism is, of course, an extraordinary crime, and its horrific nature is supposed to justify permitting all sorts of excesses to prevent it. But there's a problem with this line of reasoning: mission creep. The definitions of "terrorism" and "weapon of mass destruction" are broadening, and these extraordinary powers are being used, and will continue to be used, for crimes other than terrorism.

Some Americans spend billions to get teeth whiter. Some wait in line to get them pulled. | The Washington Post
As the distance between rich and poor grows in the United States, few consequences are so overlooked as the humiliating divide in dental care. High-end cosmetic dentistry is soaring, and better-off Americans spend well over $1 billion each year just to make their teeth a few shades whiter.

Millions of others rely on charity clinics and hospital emergency rooms to treat painful and neglected teeth. Unable to afford expensive root canals and crowns, many simply have them pulled. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans older than 65 do not have a single real tooth left.
