    arrest 2-3,000 people for assembly without a permit....i
    Zuccotti Park, where the protest is centered, is a public facility that is open to the public 24/7. You don't need a permit to go there. Political speech is still protected in public spaces the last time I looked

    How about this for a critique on your hero......Ron Paul is a social far left progressive nutjob and a fiscal far right teaparty type nutjob....both positions which I cant stand.

    How can a place be both state and privately own? It's either public (tax funded) property, or private (non tax funded) property.

    they don't want a permit, as that would suggest they are cooperating with the evil goose-stepping foot-soldiers of Capitalism/Fascism.

    the park is private property.

    Zuccotti Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Zuccotti Park, formerly called Liberty Plaza Park, is a 33,000-square-foot (3,100 m2) privately-owned publicly-accessible park in Lower Manhattan in New York City. The park, which is owned by Brookfield Office Properties, is located between Broadway, Trinity Place, Liberty Street and Cedar Street

    Wrong, the Park is a public park and required to be open to the public 24/7

    Park Gives Wall St. Protesters Place to Call Home - NYTimes.com
    The origins of the park are tied to One Liberty Plaza, a 54-story tower just north of the park. In 1968, the tower’s developers were permitted to add 500,000 square feet to their building in return for providing a public space, which was first named Liberty Plaza Park.

    no, the park is private-property. the protestors are there with the permission of the owners of the park.

    however, one phone call and the protestors must leave.

    Don't think that is what I said. To better get my meaning I would focus on this statement:

    And to not praise those who get the head start too much or condemn those who have much to overcome too much. We should try and keep some perspective.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, you're leaving out the part about how the park is a public park. It is dishonest to leave out the facts that do not support your position.
