    No, then they would just have damaged property and buildings to repair.

    Not to mention overtime for all the firefighters and their supplies as they put out all the fires started by the "peaceful" protesters.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The city has no money because of 30 years of "starve the beast".
    The taxpayers have already been paid back the TARP money, but they will never be paid back the millions of dollars the Occupy movements are costing them.

    Only about half of TARP has been paid back and estimates are after all is said and TARP will cost about 50 billion.

    Nope.


    The bank bailout -- part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program -- is now $6 billion in the black, a profit that might ultimately rise to $20 billion, according to the Treasury.

    Exacerbation of the problem one is protesting about. Sounds like a terrific notion to follow. It's easy to cause mayhem and destruction. It's another thing to leave a lasting positive legacy. So far, I see nothing of the latter.

    that's a bit of a misnomer.... as taxpayers weren't paid back one red cent.

    the government was paid back some of the TARP money, not the taxpayers.

    Your article says that TARP will ultimately cost taxpayers $19 billion.
