    Obviously, there were city ordinances that were violated, since the cops had to remove the occutards.

    So, city ordinances trump constitutional rights in your book?

    Sure, glad to.

    City officials have said that, although they respect the occupiers' constitutional right to free speech, they cannot condone taking up residence on a public right of way, which violates a city ordinance.

    The measure specifies that “no person shall occupy any portion of a public way or public place so as to obstruct or interfere with the flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic".

    I know it rubs some folks's fur the wrong way, but there is no Constitutional amendment that protects your right to violate the rights of others.

    When those city ordinances protect the rights of others, you're damn right. How can you not agree with that?

    I wasn't alive in the 1970s - and what I meant was that this country "had been built" way before arrogant Conservatives like you decided to start using it as the politically masturbating slogan du jour. You've built absolutely nothing. You're just one more worker who takes his little paycheck and goes home then does nothing but get fat and watch Sunday football. The percentage of actual work you've contributed to this country is so ridiculously insignificant that there is a decimal point and then several zeros before we actually get to what you, by yourself, have contributed to this society. I'm sure your family thanks you for your work and all that, but you've really built nothing in the grand scheme of things. Quit beating your chest about how you built this country. You're just one more little worker ant in this ant colony we call the US.

    Yes as long as they are peaceful

    In quantities that they wanted ?
    Yes

    With whatever sanitation mechanisms they thought were OK ?
    Yes. The OWS'rs had sanitation comitees to pick up trash and what not and dispose of it.

    The laws say otherwise. Explain that .... please ?
    It does? You still have yet to find those "laws"..

    Secondly. Do you two think we live in a Democracy ? Or a Democratic Republic ?
    A democratic republic which is a form of democracy... Your point being here?

    Do you know the difference ?
    Yes....

    Soo how are they gonna find out what individual within the protest "did damage"?


    Why should the taxpayers have to pay for your shanannigans?
    Sooo your gonna sue a whole movement for the act of an individual? This is gonna get real FAR in court.


    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?
    First off "occutards" isnt even catchy try to get a new one.
    So what mess? The mess they left behind from the camp which they were forced out by the CITY?
