    The only thing these clowns have is a severe case of cranium rectal insertion. They left their balls in their mommies basement.

    I'll leave philosophy to the great minds. Rarely does anyone on these boards including myself display any such qualifications.

    I totally agree. Without permits any mob could shutdown commerce, depriving people of their right to earn a living or run a business. Mobs could also takeover urban areas and make them unsafe and unsanitary for everyone, not just those in the mob. Permits don't prevent single individuals from protesting, it makes mobs follow rules so that individual rights and liberties are infringed upon. The Constitution protects the rights of individuals, not mobs.

    Permit laws come from local governments that are elected by the people to establish rules for their community. If a person doesn't like said laws they can work with the politicians to change them or they can leave the community. Permuting laws can also be ruled unConstitutional if they are overbearing and truly limit the ability of people to assemble.

    So now on top of "We cant peacably assemble when the grass is green." "We cant peacably assemble when the scary bad moon is out and the sun is gone." It is also "We cant peacably assemble when too many people want to"

    Way to totally take out of context what was said, and build a strawman argument. Who said what you typed?

    I have a right to pee, but if I am in someone else's house, I for damn sure ask permission, first.

    Make no mistake, when you are on public property, you are in "someone else's house". Sure, it's partly YOUR house too, but only a small fraction, and it's still up to the caretaker, the government, to decide what is best for that property. That's what you, and all the other tax payers PAY them to do.

    Their agenda has been to remove wallstreet's influence over american politics.

    Now you are the one strawman'n. Peacable assemblers disbanded from public because grass is too green, freshly sodded grass. City deems peacable assemblers cant stay over night, must be that scary moon. And now (you) say they cant peacably assemble if too many want too. (your definition is "the mob")
