Hippies doing what hippies do best -- protesting tha' MAN

From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Housing protest leads to takeover of duplex
A group of homeless people and housing activists took over a privately owned Mission District duplex on Sunday in what served as the climax of a protest designed to promote use of San Francisco's vacant buildings as shelters for the needy.

But the owner of the property - who was targeted over his eviction of a tenant - said the demonstration was nothing more than breaking and entering.

"It's not actually vacant. I use it for my own personal uses," Ara Tehlirian of Daly City said in an interview, adding that he was in contact with the San Francisco Police Department. "I know nothing other than my property was apparently broken into."
OK -- so you want to live in one of the more expensive cities in the US if not the world but you don't want to knuckle down and work for it. You see a piece of real-estate that is currently empty, you smash your way in and proceed to take up residence. (set sarcasm=on)And offering to the building's owner to paint the place and making sure to keep everything spotless as well(set sarcasm=off) You gotta love these people -- clueless useful idiots:
Take what you need / Live by what you desire
People should be taken out and given a good horsewhipping until they come to their senses. If you choose not to work, you should not expect to get a free handout and most certainly, you should not take anything that was not yours to belong with. The article has over 1,000 comments of which this is just a typical example:
Hey, just because someone else worked, earned the money, bought the property and is trying to sell it is no reason why a bunch of grubby freeloaders should not show up to demand their handouts. I think the harshest buzz to hit hippies and socialists is the simple fact that being stoned, exuding peace and love and "just trying to get by, man" does not guarantee that "mother earth" or "karma" will take care of all of your needs. Try washing, shaving, getting a hair cut, learning some skills then actually get a job that pays cash. The rest of us do this; you can as well.
You can see more of these epsilon-minuses on parade at the Annual March 20th Anti-War rally from Zombietime (03/20 is when the Coalition forces invaded Iraq). You may see a bunch of smelly muddleheaded hippies. I see a target rich environment...
