Penny wise and pound foolish. Don't see nothin' wrong with that POS. Just like most landlords, how cheap can you fix it? Maintenance? Why? 5-gallon buckets of oil, no problem. Keep 'em right next to the furnace so they stay nice and warm for good combustion! Service once every 6-years, of course. You don't want to wear out the pump gasket or anything. And look at all the reusable soot they've saved!!
If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.
If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!
