More proof our ‘leaders’ are working against freedom and democracy.

Hmmm, total incompetence, inability to lead, and lack of anything approaching an idea.

Must be a dim-bulb-crat...afraid to alienate the aliens, b*stards, Hollywierd bimbos and bimboys, and the rest of his loathful constituency.

WHAT???

I can’t believe what I just read. Isn’t this just like negotiating with terrorists? What’s wrong with these people (and I’m not talking about the occupiers this time).

LA can do this right now because their economy is strong. But if things get tight, this could backfire.

HAHAHAHA! Just kidding. :-D

They’re idiots, in a “Chris Matthews sort of way”*.

*Sincerely stupid liberals. They really do believe in a utopian fantasy with as much religious zeal as Christians believe in the atoning blood of Christ. But the former worship a false god that will, and in many cases, already has, let them down.

I have argued with hippie commies that America is great. A group of their hippie commie brethern could join funds and buy a farm and live out their hippie commie utopian dream.
More power to you.
However, it is not for government (other people’s tax payer money) to support some brain dead hippie commie utopian fantasy.

The local Tea Party and other organizations should ask for the same treatment.

It would be illegal for governments to treat groups differently based on the views they support.

Well, the city better be careful.
They must offer the same to all others who wish to exercise 1st Amendment rights or else they would be violating that Amendment and equal protection provisions of the Constitution as amended.

That $1 better include utilities, maid service, trash pickup, etc. And the farm? I presume that’s going to be a real-life Animal Farm? I can see the accelerated chaos now.

Tea party asks for the same thing and when they are refused let the tea party sue and then use that money to go against this buffoon.

Also it would close down this taxpayers nightmare.

This could become hilarious. Imagine what would happen if you got, say, a 200 acre foreclosed spread, threw in a wooden barracks ranch house, free irrigation and seed, as well as hand tools. All set up to farm, just add hard work and everything you grow is yours, you freaks, tax free.

And put about 50 OWS types on it. BIG fence, to like “keep them safe”, or something.

It could even be a reality show: Lord of the Flies, II.

Battle Royale (Batoru Rowaiaru)? Now on pay-per-view.

Doesn't matter. After New London, they'll just take it... and give it away.

The little scum sucking Villaraigosa would’ve been out years ago if the apathy in L.A. was so strong. People in Los Angeles just don’t give a crap. So let them reap what they sow.

Sorry, but if I was the mayor I’d have to say, “We don’t negotiate with terrorists”

So, anyway, when does the TEA Party get our 10K of office space and some farmland???

I’d like to see them give the OWS bums 10,000 square feet of space in a prison.

Looks like the Tea Party just got 10,000 sq ft of office space and some farm land for $1/yr in LA. Just need to go file the paperwork.

So the mayor of LA owns 10k sq ft of downtown office space and, an undetermined amount of farmland... It’s really nice of him to forfeit HIS property to the squatters. Apparently the mayor of LA is independently wealthy.

More great campaign material ready to go for next year.
A liberal Democrat giving in to lawless; filthy hippies. Creating a squatters camp with city resources; sure to crime and disease ridden.

Come on California conservatives; go after these crooks.

You don't understand L.A. politics. Tony Villar, the Mayor, would be out demonstrating with the rowdies if he didn't have his political career to think of. His goal is to become CA governor so he can essentially make the state part of Mexico.

He was a labor organizer before entering politics (sound familiar?) and served as national co-chairman of Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign. He was also a member of Obama's Transitional Economic Advisory Board.

I college he was very active with M.E.Ch.A., the student movement of Aztlan devoted to promoting Chicano unity and empowerment through political action. A passage from its national website says: "As Chicanas and Chicanos of Aztlan, we are a nationalist movement of Indigenous Gente that lay claim to the land that is ours by birthright. As a nationalist movement we seek to free our people from the exploitation of an oppressive society that occupies our land."

Thanks for the education! I had no idea it is that messed up!
At this point, I would just give it to them. Not much good (exept Ronnie) has come out of California...especially Hollywood.

The problem with these cretons getting these kinds of perks, is that conservatives never sue over them. When a conservative sneezes, some liberal will go to court and file a law suit against the sneezer for contaminating the air. Conservatives just want to live and let live.

You are correct!

At age 34, as Antonio Villar, he married Corina Raigosa November 28, 1987,[89] and adopted a combination of their last names as his family name.

So does this mean that the city has some unoccupied office space that they are willing to give away or are they confiscating some private owner’s office space?

Hopefully he is not kicking out some “homeless” wetbacks from the office space, or maybe they will all share kumbaya together.

How much more idiocy can this country stand?

That’s fine. Just let these )@(*@ lib mayors and city official keep supporting this “movement” of whiny middle class kids. It’ll only hurt the dems come election time.
All this is a the radical left “We want more programs” bunch.

They’re nasty, dirty, vile, lazy, spoiled, and their numbers are not even a big deal.
Yet we have to read and hear about them EVERY SINGLE DAY.

LA is doomed. It’s such a shame Cali has so many electoral votes.
