A German court will decide whether the room in her home webcam girl Natalie Hot performs in counts as a home office. Hot lives in an area that isn't zoned for commercial activities, and some of her neighbors have complained about her business as well as the noise she makes. But residents of the neighborhood are allowed to maintain an office in their homes, and she says her webcam business really is more like working from home that a commercial business.

  1. You know who else worked where they lived and got a lot of complaints?

    1. Every president of the United States since Jefferson?

    2. The bagpiper that lived above the broom handle maker?

    3. Batman?

    4. yo mamma?

  2. Her work also cannot be considered as freelance either, since that term can only be applied to work requiring “a certain standard of mental or creative skill” – which the local authorities argue Hot’s profession does not have.

    And to make that determination they scrutinized her work hard.

    1. Flopping your boob on the camera is not very imaginative.
      Mix it up some.
      Maybe balloons.

      1. Or add a slimy reptile…just puttin it out there

        1. volunteering?

  3. She lost. A couple of days ago.

    1. Who could have seen that coming?

      “A German court will decide…” is as far as I needed to go to know how it was going to turn out.

  4. She’s actually my sister’s cousin’s ex-roommate. She makes thousand$ working from home on the Internet, and you can too, just click this link:

  5. Speaking of broadcasting from home, check this out.

    Darrell Castle is doing a literal back-porch campaign.

    The bad news is that he seems to be an anti-vaxxer and for mandatory GMO labels. So, heresy.

    But on a positive note, he’s a serious non-interventionist.

    Domestically, all govt. agencies would have to justify their continued existence or he’d get rid of them.

    He likes Ron Paul and likes Rand Paul (but not as much as he likes Ron).

    He’d ask Congress to strengthen the Fed. Just kidding – he wants it abolished.

    He believes there are people trying to build a New World Order – he prefers decentralization.

    Taxation is theft – wants to repeal the 16th Amendment.

    Served in the marines, considered being a professor, then became a lawyer and had a family.

    Global warming – humanity isn’t causing “catastrophic” climate change – “I tend to support the hoax theory.”

    Drug war has been “a terrible disaster” – wants to end it.

    1. He differs from Johnson on the right to life, border security, religious freedom.

      Against term limits.

      Secure the border – before allowing more immigration, get a system to know who the immigrants are, then have as many as we want.

      His tax plan would apportion taxes among the states based on the census – let the states collect the needed taxes in such manner as they want.

      He’d decriminalize marijuana, wouldn’t interfere with any state legalization efforts.

      Supports energy independence with any available resources, “coal miners would be very happy with me.”

      Became Christian shortly after his marriage, after a Billy Graham crusade, 1977. His wife “led [him] to the Lord.”

      Dump common core, abolish Dept. of Education.

      He’d assemble health-care experts to advise him, but he’d be guided by free-market principles.

      Against negative income tax – “theft is theft” whether by Congress or a robber in an alley.

      He’d want to put his friend Herb Titus on the Supreme Court, he’d consider Roy Moore for Supreme Court, he’d consider Ted Cruz and Mike Lee (for Supreme Court or cabinet?)

      No-one’s above the law and no-one’s beneath it, the Constitution embodies the rule of law.

      Praise for VP candidate, Scott Bradley – supports Bradley’s idea of

      On the ballot in 24 states, in 21 or 22 additional states he’s a write-in candidate.

      1. He’s “a good friend of Israel,” but against foreign aid. He’d stop aiding Israel’s enemies with arms. Israel has nukes, so “they’re OK.” He wouldn’t sit back and watch Israel be destroyed.

        Russia v. US – mutual “posturing,” but there probably won’t be a nuclear war.

        Agrees with Ron Paul re Middle East – we marched in and can march out, but as to the ISIS threat, he’d have to know more before deciding what to do.

        Would he prosecute Hillary or Obama? He’d prosecute anyone who commits federal crimes. Focus on due process.

        He’d trade with other countries (even Saudi Arabia) but wouldn’t arm them.

        TSA – against airport body scanners, but he’d study up on the situation and try “to make it better.”

        No czars.

        TPP – he’s against it, opposed to free trade agreements but supports free trade – but the so-called free trade agreements “transfer American sovereignty” to bureaucrats and corporations.

        He hopes he can at least debate the other 3rd party candidates, even if he can’t debate the main candidates.

        The American ship of state has slipped its moorings – we’ve lost sight of land, and if we don’t change course we’ll soon forget there ever was land.

        1. Agenda 21 – he’s against it. It’s “run through the United Nations,” so getting out of the UN will solve that problem.

          He’d “embarrass Congress” into abolishing the Fed, by publicizing the evils of the system.

          Indian reservations are an example of socialism. “Something should be done about that.”

          He’s watching the debate (he’s also boycotting the NFL)

          1. oops,

            Praise for VP candidate, Scott Bradley – supports Bradley’s idea of ending massive federal land-ownershp in the West.

            1. My kinda guy.

    2. The bad news is that he seems to be an anti-vaxxer and for mandatory GMO labels. So, heresy.

      Yeah – both of those are pretty bad. One is dangerously ignorant and one opens up the ‘government should and *can* regulate* can of worms.

      He believes there are people trying to build a New World Order – he prefers decentralization.

      Unfortunately those sorts of people are against free trade with other countries. They tend to consider the national border as something special compared to city, county, and state borders. I can understand why people might think that on immigration and compromise with them – I won’t when it comes to trade.

      He differs from Johnson on the right to life, border security, religious freedom.
      Drug war has been “a terrible disaster” – wants to end it.

      The problem is that is been the *traditionally religious* who pushed for and been pushing the increases in the Drug War.

      1. His tax plan would apportion taxes among the states based on the census – let the states collect the needed taxes in such manner as they want.

        How about we don’t collect taxes above what the Federal government needs to operate and so there’s no need to apportion them back to the states at all? This stance isn’t any better than what we’ve already got.

        Supports energy independence with any available resources, “coal miners would be very happy with me.”

        Sure, coal miners. And ‘alternate energy’ boondoggles as his administration throws money at anyone who comes up with a half-assed plan to make cheap solar cells or cheap wind farms, or maybe those magnets you put on your fuel lines.

        He’d want to put his friend Herb Titus on the Supreme Court, he’d consider Roy Moore for Supreme Court, he’d consider Ted Cruz and Mike Lee (for Supreme Court or cabinet?)

        Yeah – honestly, I trust Clinton to pick more freedom-friendly justices than Roy Moore. Or Cruz.

        TSA – against airport body scanners, but he’d study up on the situation and try “to make it better.”

        Meaning – oh, they’re not harmful according to studies and make us safer so we’ll keep them. When he wants to talk about breaking up DHS or simply disbanding the TSA – ‘all agencies must justify their existence’ rhetoric aside, if he’s getting down in the weeds this far then he’s not serious about the subject.

        1. No czars.

          Right. There are always czars. Johnson, *if* he gets elected, will appoint czars.

          The American ship of state has slipped its moorings – we’ve lost sight of land, and if we don’t change course we’ll soon forget there ever was land.

          That’s simply not a very good analogy. Or metaphor.

        2. Re the TSA – what he said he’s study was the airport security situation in general, he specifically said he didn’t like the scanners.

      2. Castle speaks up for free trade, but opposes sovereignty-impairing “free trade treaties.”

        “The problem is that is been the *traditionally religious* who pushed for and been pushing the increases in the Drug War.”

        I’ll give you Woodrow Wilson, but FDR and Richard Nixon? What makes *them* traditionally religious?

  6. Morning, I wonder if the neighbors found out because some of the husbands were viewers? And,couldn’t there have been a better pic?

    1. Frau Hot summarizes the complaints thusly:

      “”Some people will always complain for some reason,” said Hot, who does not want her real name made public.

      “”Light pollution, I’m too loud, the children can’t sleep – that kind of thing.””

      1. Light pollution? She is doing this with her windows open, curtains not drawn? Too loud? Pull the curtains and keep the noise down lady. None of your neighbors ever had to know what you were doing. I think her exhibitionism may have gotten out of hand and the neighbors probably have a legitimate bitch.

        1. It does depends on the position of the room and widow and if it’s on the first floor or higher. Plus,why are they looking in her window? I’m still thinking prudish Germanic women bitching cause the hubby’s like to look at her.

        2. squish, thud…squish , thud is noise pollution?

  7. Does she do anal?

    1. bend over and let’s see…

  8. Wow! She’s hot!!

  9. Are her activities allowable if the camera is off?

    Presumably her neighbors have sex and talk on the phone and watch TV.

    What did she do to piss them off?

  10. While coming to education, the technology has brought many advantages to students and as well as teachers. showbox For example, students can do their homework or assignment with ease and can complete it faster by using the Internet.
