    As I said before, it is not waste, it is supporting a Constitutional right. As such, yes you are whining.

    Damaging public property and wasting tax dollars aren't afforded protections under the Constitution.

    There seem to be quite a few people missing the point. No one is questioning their right to protest.

    If that bill outwieghs the revenue that those events create, you're exactly right.

    By saying that they must apply for a permit and that there is someone who can turn down that request, yes you are.

    Why should the taxpayers have to pay for your shanannigans?

    We hear the occutards rail about banks getting bailouts, yet they don't mind blowing a million taxpayer dollars cleaning up a mess that they created. Hypocrisy much?

    Or do you consider wars that actually protect our freedoms also a waste of taxpayer money?
    It is when you unnecessarily damage public property.

    Why is that so hard to grasp?

    But you are putting a price on the right to protest. A right is something that the people have freely. Money is not required to exercise any right. That includes charging people for incidental damages. Putting a price on the ability of someone to protest is no different than when the Democrats tried to put requirements on the right to vote at elections in order to deter blacks from voting.

    Depends on the reason that permit was declined. I'm not aware that those permits are declined, without a damn good reason. Maybe you can show us some examples of that.

    There is a Constitutional right to protest. I've pointed out many times that our rights are not always free nor pretty. There is no Constitutional right to have your investment bank saved by the government with taxpayers money when you screw it royally up.

    Go violate a curfew. Have your lawyer send us a postcard.
