“City officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall.”

Full Story & Details here: “Occupy L.A. receives offer to decamp; Protesters could get downtown office space and farmland if they leave City Hall.”

Wake up taxpayers; this is your money the Mayor is giving away. Los Angeles is being treated as a fiefdom of the leftist Hispanic mafia.

Looks like the hapless lib Mayor is feeling the heat from the decent citizens who are fed up with the filth and squalor which is part and parcel of what the OWS (bowel) movement is all about.

Since he cannot (politically) come out and force them to go away he has decided to “hide” them from the public view.

No wonder that California is truly the land of nuts and fruits.
I wonder if a mule comes with the farmland.

Interesting that if they *take* the “bribe”, then they will be no better than the politicians that are pawns of the corporatism they say they protest against. Also, if they acquire the space, I assume only the *elite* will be camping there and/or it will become just another homeless shelter.

Their camps have lots of trouble...they even separate themselves by the haves and have nots...lots of fighting amongst themselves and disagreements - not to mention all the extra crime and disease that has come with these “communities”. I know a guy in OKC that has become one of their leaders. He ended up in the hospital last week because of stress.

Their freedom to assemble has turned into one big pointless mess. Soon, no one will even remember what or why this thing started...JUST GIVE ‘EM FREE STUFF!

This is how it's done ... make noise, dress and act weird, become a common phrase and take up a position sanctioned or allowed by the entity you say you're against.

Our problem as Patriots is ... we abide by (the?) rules.

$1-a-year

Make that $1 for one year until the election. The Socialist Democrat reelection strategy is to stir the pot of envy among the mob and attack and bring down what little is left of 1950s America. After the election the useful idiots will be cast out and bused back to their section 8 communist slums.

Aren't they principled? They should protest and riot and be even more licentious (lice-centious too!) until the LA mayor agrees to knock the price down by $1. No Compromise!

If OWS is intended to be the counterpunch to the Tea Party (it is) then it must endure into next years run up. A west coast presence also maintains some visibility thru the cold winter. Obie’s probably pressured Mayor La Raza to do this.

None of the “occupy” camps would have lasted a week without the support of leftist politicians, who need the mobs as tools for the (they think) Transformation Of America promised by The One.

It appears that even among socialists, not all animals are equal:
"I don't appreciate people appointing themselves to represent me, to represent us," one woman called out during the assembly. "Who was in those meetings?"
Not to worry my peon Comrade, they'll TELL YOU what to do after they get the corner office with window view, the Mahogany furniture, a nice leather recliner, and 80" Flat-screen TV, Broadband, Blue-ray, etc, etc..

an aside: I hope they go for the "10,000 SF office space". That's only 100 ft x 100 ft. Enough for the self-appointed 'LEADERS' and that's about it. (ain't life a beech. LOL!)

How about if you can use Public space, IF you can prove you pay taxes? Second, if the Public Space is un-used, why is the taxpayer paying for it, and it’s not SOLD to reduce the deficit?

This will be a move he will soon regret. He is trying to appease the enemy only to be soon it’s target. Since the OWS crowd has not earned when they are being offered, they will not take care of it. It will become zone of filth.

They already are. Where do you think international communism gets its funding but from the wealthiest people on the planet? And they are NOT doing it for ideological reasons.

Socialism consolidates the power of a government guaranteed to be in debt. The bondholders call the shots, whether for regulatory favors or favorable taxation. This whole 'tax the rich' scam is actually aimed at their competition: what's left of the the upper middle class. The wealthy have tax exempt foundations with which they fund their racketeering in the name of "charity."

Wake up taxpayers; this is your money the Mayor is giving away.

giving away to the 2012 Democrat reelection campaign. This is a one-sided political donation of taxpayer money that's off the donation books. Without giving away other people's money to the mob no Democrat could ever get elected.

It’s official now. How can people ignore it anymore?

The communists have placed themselves in postions of power in every branch of government and government at every level is aiding and abetting these people.

Most people should know how evil communism is by now, so the people that are all for it must be inherently evil.

The noozpeeps are aiding and abetting them too.

They want to cover the revolution that they are helping to incite.
