At least that's what the govt tells me every time their activities result in deaths and destruction of property of those who were not involved in the conflict.
Remember that seven story apartment building in Iran that was leveled by a bunker buster at dinnertime because they thought Saddam was eating in a restaurant on the ground floor? I do. I saw the reporter jump when the huge explosion hit. I also recall that the residents in that area had been told to remain indoors to avoid being hit while we precision bombed the AA batteries that were in the streets in the area.
Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
The Psychology of Persuasion
The reason why people are poor is NOT because of protesting and activism. Get a clue please.

Thank you, Quazi!
this will surely help Philly's budget problems.
unlike the federal government ( that OWS won't protest) cities and states have statutory obligations to balance their budgets.... they don't do bailouts, and they don't have trillions.
but never fear, they will have to divert costs now... only you won't appreciate where they will be diverted from.
Certainly Occupy Philadelphia has a right to protest, but as responsible citizens and decent people don't they also have a responsibility to pay their fair share of the costs they are generating? After all, there is a difference between protesting and squatting on city property and there is no Constitutional right to squat on city property or private property, so if the city of Philadelphia is generous enough to allow them to squat in City Hall courtyard, shouldn't an innate sense of decency and responsibility to the community compel them to want to pay their fair share of the costs they are generating?
