Always wanted a home, but can’t afford one? Well it’s your lucky day. Just move to California, find a vacant house and squat in it. It doesn’t matter whether someone else “owns” it. If you want it, it’s apparently your “fundamental human right” to have it.
from the American Spectator:
Taking Property for Fun and Profit
Oakland rewards squatting while Los Angeles officials want to use eminent domain to seize apartments. Investors ought to run for the hills.
After a group of homeless moms simply moved into a vacant three-bedroom house in Oakland owned by a company that invests in local real estate, local progressives turned them into folk heroes. These women weren’t squatters who took something that wasn’t theirs, but valiant protesters who were standing up for their communities against — all together now — corporate speculators.
