And, no, Fuzzy, my MORTGAGE money pays for my right to occupy my house, my TAX dollars pay for our government, its property and it's function. Seriously, take some classes.
LOL, Fuzzy, you need to use your dictionary. One "squats" in order to lay claim and seek title to property. There is no reason for the Occupiers to seek title, they already hold title. It is public land - they are the public! My tax dollars, along with others, paid for that land, the upkeep, and the electricity. They are exercising their right to free-speech to speak against government corruption. If you are opposed to our bill of rights, there are several countries who do not have one, perhaps you should check into relocating.
The public doesn't "rent" public property, they already own it. That is why it is deemed "public". It is publicly owned for the public to use.
Furthermore, there are many local colleges and universities who offer government classes, perhaps you should check into one.
Fuzzy, the rent has already been paid through years of my county tax dollars! Occupiers... ENJOY!
Let me put this VERY SIMPLY: 1st Amendment to the Constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
THE RIGHT TO PEACEFULLY ASSEMBLE!!!
