    That's exactly what it's about. There was a charge of racism brought against banks because they weren't giving a sufficient number of loans to Black applicants.

    Then perhaps, out of civic duty and the magic of television, they should go somewhere where they aren't blocking pedestrians or traffic.

    The international organizations behind the Occupy movement could care less what their actions cost anybody.

    They only desire to bring down our capitalist system.

    51%-98% still qualifies.

    I read an article in the Dallas Morning News about how the OWS protesters in Dallas are praising local law enforcement Officers for their friendly attitudes and help that they have given to the protesters.

    Well, I feel all warm and fuzzy now....That should also make the participants feel good since they are not supposed to report crimes happening to them to the police, but rather some internal BS where they say they will counsel the offenders....HA!

    Also, I am waiting for the Tea Party to sue these municipalities over the fees they were charged to hold their events that these self absorbed, selfish OWS'ers are not.

    The Tea Party lawsuits are going to be thrown out of court. It's similar to hiring on a job at $11.00/Hr and finding out later that someone hired after you is making $14.00/Hr. Using that for an argument will not get you a raise.

    Your inconvenience does not override the rights of the individual.

    So long as their movement isn't to make retard comments and arguments like the one you presented here; we're headed in the right direction.

    Sorry Mickey, bad analogy. Fees, and permit hurdles in your mind are only for those that don't promote the message you agree with?

    I actually think protest permits are similar to poll taxes.

    Paying to exercise your rights.

    I don't think anybody should be charged to protest.

    And I wonder what philadelphia is getting for $10,000 a day in police "surveillance".
