The Revolution Starts . . . Now

I'm Calling Bullshit On Homelessness. I have never lost a flame war yet, and I'm not about to start with this one. In two recent diaries over at MyDD, Tax Welfare For Billionaires and Tax Welfare For Billionaires II, I pointed out that tax cuts for billionaires were nothing more than thinly disguised welfare programs for the ultra rich. Since homeless Americans and working Americans have a greater need for economic assistance in these perilous economic times, I decided to take over Birch Park just south of downtown Santa Ana (page 829 in your Thomas Guide at E3) as a statement of my discontent with the current economic conventional wisdom that providing welfare to billionaires will eventually trickle down to the rest of us.
I'm in the process of wrapping up a few loose ends before I file a series of lawsuits that will bring landlord/tenant law in Orange County, Calfornia into conformity with California law. The current rule of law in Orange County can be simply stated as "the landlord wins." Regardless of the law, the equity or the specific facts of any particular situation, "the landlord wins."
That is about to change. Trust me. I will be adding more details as I get situated in my new residence and my economic situation returns to the norm. For now you can take my word for it that landlord/tenant law in Orange County is going to experience a radical transformation.
Would anyone care to place a Buddah Dollar Bet on whether or not I succeed?
