    It is already bankrupt. No big deal. Fine them many thousands of dollars each and I think that might be the end of the movement. Lawlessness should not be allowed. Nor should the lawless be coddled.

    Why not compare them to the mafia, or any other hoodlum, if you want an analogy with lawbreakers.

    To even remotely suggest that a heroic woman like Rosa Parks should be included with the OWS crowd does a huge disservice to her memory and highlights once again the ignorance of those who participate and support mob rule, versus courageous people like Rosa Parks who act on their own to see justice served.

    I think it ranks up there with Time's "Person of the Year" being the 'Protester', which was noble with those who fomented the "Arab Spring", but an absolute joke to include the Occutard largesse in with.

    Bottom line: Can't make chicken salad out of chicken ****.

    And you totally ignore the fact that both Rosa Parks AND the OWS broke city ordinances and ignored cops commands.

    The only difference between Rosa Parks and the OWS is that you support what Rosa protested against. You don't support the OWS. The hypocrisy here is astounding.

    At this point, your solution would pre-suppose that:

    1. There are already laws on the books to provide for such fines.

    2. Such laws are able to be applied retroactively.

    If neither of these are true, then that is no solution for what has already occurred. Now...I suppose it's possible that these two conditions could become reality in the future, but that means that the liberal government of LA would have to change. Not likely, imo.


    I do agree with you that lawlessness should not be allowed, but that position should have been taken by LA from day one. I'm afraid that now...the City of LA is SOL.

    This is actually a good point. The fact that they allowed the OWS protesters to stay there for as long as they did could be viewed as tactic approval for allowing them to stay. Its not like they could claim that they didn't know that the OWS was going to stay there for so long day and night. Thats something that the OWS does everywhere and you'd have to be living under a rock to not know that.

    Can anyone show that Rosa parks resisted police, or damaged property?

    When Parks refused to give up her seat, a police officer arrested her. As the officer took her away, she recalled that she asked, "Why do you push us around?" The officer's response as she remembered it was, "I don't know, but the law's the law, and you're under arrest."[18] She later said, "I only knew that, as I was being arrested, that it was the very last time that I would ever ride in humiliation of this kind..."[1]



    Why am I not surprised that a Conservative would fail basic African-American history?

    All crooks ignore the law. Are you calling Rosa Parks a crook?

    The difference, and itīs a huge difference, is that Rosa Parks acted alone. Her cause was just whereas the OWS idiots don't even know what their cause is. You canīt name it yourself unless you get into some sort of vague generalities. Isnīt that true? Perhaps you can articulate their message for them. Can you?

    You cant compare one single brave individual , a lone woman, to a mob. Thatīs just goofy.

    I believe that a few of us would say that the stupidity is what is astounding. All protests are not created equal, Grasshopper.
