    Incidentally, pizza places are doing awesome in NYC. OWS IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY! MY RANDOM ANECDOTE PROVES THIS!

    Yes, because protest and assembly are essential rights which must be protected. Freedom must be upheld. Some of y'all may have a hard time understanding the principles of freedom and liberty; but those where what this Republic was founded on. And all the stupid propaganda and retard arguments about OWS cannot change that fact.

    Some people have the balls to live with the consequences of freedom, others run from it. "Conservatives" at one time were in the former, but are now in the latter.

    Yes it is because the OP isn't even about OWS. Those numbers have dwindled and no longer cause disruption (nor are there folk there to buy stuff from the stores); the complaint was about barricades and trying to restore a bit of normalcy now that the protest has died down.

    Let´s keep in mind that freedom of speech is also included among these rights. Thus if many want to call the OWS protesters useless, dirty and ignorant, they have that right as well.

    We don't have to support protesters just because it is their right to protest.

    some folks here seem to have lost respect for the OWS protesters' right to free speech & assembly.
