    Re: L.A. might sue Occupy L.A. protestors for financial damages

    I don't know if Occupy LA was like Occupy Oakland who was depositing donations into Well Fargo (discussed on another thread). Oakland made news depositing $20k or so. A like entity in LA could be the 'who to sue'. This kind of amount wouldn't put much of a dent into $2.3m but I'm sure the residents of LA would appreciate anything they could get. The Occupy could presumably garner some creditability in 'donating' some funds in lieu of forcing a lawsuit to term.

    When the Wisconsin protestors damaged public property, then you're damn right they violated the law.

    Ok, so the more realistic estimate of costs are....

    That memo said the cleanup would cost $347,500 if the work did not require a historic preservation specialist.

    *From the link*
    Clearly a politically propagandist move to allege the $7.5 Mil...the more realistic figure is still quite a bit of money...Who should pay for that?

    I think he is referring to the Walker administration releasing the memo concerning the cost of repair at $7.5 mil, then taking it back and revising it to $350,000.....

    The truth hurts, doesn't it? I thought you were going to start going off about how you and whatever immigrant group you hail from and how they built this country. At least, I would have given that a little bit more credence. I guess we will all just have to live with wondering what it was that you "built" to begin with. Maybe a railroad in the 1860s? Nah, that would make you 150+ years old. Maybe you built some refineries in the 1920s? No? What about buildings, did you build any buildings at least? Maybe you put up a roof like I did when I was 10 so now you think you're far more significant than you really are in the grand scheme of things. Shoot, I've probably fed more people with my income taxes than you have spent in groceries for the past 30 yes. Can I claim that I "built" this country too? No? What's the standard for having "helped" built this country? See that is what I took issue with: Your ridiculous self aggrandizing of whatever meager contribution you've made to society. I heard you use it and realize that like most people who need to scream about how they built this country, your contribution to this country has been at best minimal and you go off to a little corner when it is pointed out.

    And the Tea Party or the MLK protesters?

    Also who paid for the clean up afterwards in Wis.? Did the teachers pay for it? Did the Unions? ....or did the taxpayers.

    1Perry has been doing a real good job with this. I really don't have too much to add. You see someone damage property, arrest them. If they are just protesting, leave them be. It's a fairly simple. Tax payers have wasted a lot of money, say on bailouts and corporate welfare, needless wars, and NCLB. I would spend my outrage there before here.

    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.
