    Re: Police clear out Oakland protest camp

    Just out of curiosity, would the people condemning the OWS protests and applauding the actions of the police be saying the same thing if it were a Tea Party protest? I don't really take any sides in this issue at all. This is just a question that I'm honestly curious about. I don't see OWS accomplishing anything and I think that the original message has been skewed so much that a good portion of the people don't even know what they are protesting anymore. I also think that some of the police have been going overboard and that the people who are applauding them are doing so because they don't agree with the entire premise of OWS.

    The republicans didn't camp out, didn't prevent city workers from cleaning an area, didn't try bogarting the areas they were protesting at for as long as they like, throw chairs into Starbucks, annoy the **** out of burger kind employees and customers, rape any one, have someone mysteriously die at their protest or any other idiotic thing the OWS did.

    So i can peacefully assemble in your house for as long as I like? Or better yet peacefully assemble on the sidewalk surrounding your house for as long as like thus denying you any use of this sidewalk,access to your house and ability for you to park your car in your driveway?

    It's sexist- no two ways about it. If you don't mind being sexist and offensive, I guess that's up to you, but somebody needed to let you know, apparently.

    I think you make a mistake meant to use ♀ instead of ♂ in your user profile.

    Peacefully assemble I don't think means take over an area to the exclusion of anyone else that may want to use that park. Nor do I think it covers hassling people in the normal course of business of their day, nor do I think it means that a group can infringe on the rights of others due to their assembly.
