Occupy Your Own Front Lawn

Occupy Your Own Front Lawn

War on Error  has a great idea:

put a tent on your own front lawn and then we can start seeing hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of our own front lawns….Occupied!!! 

Thank you Daily Kos   @dailykos it’s excellent.

What would Mayors and Police Departments and City Councils and Bureaucrats do?

Will they start raiding my own front lawn? Throwing tear gas canisters into my pup tent?  Whack my dog with a baton?  Pull my grandmother out of her sleeping bag?  Turn over my cookstove?  Tear down my sign?

You don’t even have to sleep in your tent (some people can’t).

Holidays come, throw a string of lights on it & put on your Santa suit!

Hell, in some cities they probably would, but it’s not like they can say there is a curfew.  Or the property owner did not give you permission?

The more I think on this and write about it the more I like it and want to see it done.

Imagine how this could garner news.  We can get quite creative, actually.

We can each make an Occupy Statement on our front lawns if we have one.  Imagine the kids in the neighborhoods asking:

“Mom, why does that lady (whoever) on the corner have a tent in her yard?  And what does Occupy Wall Street mean?
