    They have their rights, right up to the tip of my nose. The moment they violate any of MY rights, is the moment they lose that right.

    Not really priceless, really a pain in the ass. He said himself he doesn't want to be forced to do that again. Our taxpayer dollars are supposed to afford us the freedom to pursue business interests without law breaking vandalism and mob violence, trespassing, etc. Get your priorities straight cities, or the people who pay your bills will do it for you. Governments need to crack down hard on these ass-hats, and not worry about the faux cries of "facism".

    Do you really believe that?

    If the government and the police turned on 'the people" they would be screwed. What makes it all work is respect for the rights of others, and as that is being eroded. This "We, the people" dream will be history. In fact the President has been working on dividing the country for quite some time, and succeeding quite well apparently.

    I don't care if people want to protest. But when they start breaking the law, preventing others from earning the money to feed their own families, and pelting police officers with objects that can maim and kill, then they get no sympathy from me when they are herded off the public streets in a stampede of tear gas and rubber bullets.

    Now they want to close down the city. Great. I'm sure in this economy everyone can afford to do just that. Solidary, bro'. You can eat and pay the mortgage later.
    These people are breaking the law in order to protest against people who might be breaking the law.

    The OWS are as stupid a group of people as I've yet seen gathered together in one place.

    Yes, this should encourage more jobs and investment in Oakland.

    Keep it up, Bozos. Ports at Seatac and in Canada can use the extra business.

    They are all "the people", and have the same right to protest against those OWS idiots who are taking their rights away. If they are breaking the law, and it's clear they are, then their rights extend only to the reading of Miranda.
