    Parks that are set up for actual camping. We shouldn't be wasting excess tax dollars because the occutards un-necessarily trashed out public property. It wouldn't violate the rights of the occutards, if they left these areas is as good of shape/or better than they were when they showed up for the protest.

    This goes both ways. Many (again I have no idea exactly how many) that would have a fit over the idea that one should have to get a permit to own a gun is fine with requiring one to exercise other rights (and visa versa). One position is no better than the other. There are large costs associated with our rights to own guns. That's a part of not being a country that throws people in jail because they use "ugly words".
    I don't disagree with protestors having to apply for a permit to hold a protest on public property. There may be a planned infrastructure improvement for that area on the day the protestors want to protest. We wouldn't want to postpone the project just because of the protest. The point is, it gives a municipality the oppurtunity to say, "you can't protest there, because there's a job going on. You're going to have to pick another spot".

    Along with that, it's not a 1st Amendment right to block streets that people use to go about their daily lives. The rights of the protestors--whoever they may be--don't override the rights of everyone else to conduct their daily lives. Protestors that block streets that people use to get back and forth to work should be arrested for violating the civil rights of others.

    That's right on!

    I thnk the money should come out of the paychecks of the city officials who chose to sit back and let these clowns run amuck.

    I also can only assume that based upon the use of a smiley that you do not take our rights as a serious thing.
    The difference being, my private ownership of a gun doesn't infringe on anyone else's rights.

    No. But as they say, you can't squeeze blood from a stone.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Which is why the occutards need to do the right thing, by raising the money to reimburse the tax payers.

    They are suing people because they protested?

    I already know it's not going to happen. The occutards are obviously content with ****ing over the taxpayers. No surprise.

    No, they're sueing people because they trashed out public property and stuck the taxpayers with the tab.
