    How bout that?

    It's great that they did it but it's not required to exercise your rights. Nobody has to get a permit to protest. Or at least they should not have to.

The words I use have specific meanings and I put some thought into why I believe you have that arrogance. "Occutard" is entirely meaningless however, its a term which says you think the movement is stupid however its done in a way that mimics a child by adding "tard" to a word. It also has no why, no reason behind it, no explanation, you're opinions are stated as if they were fact.

    In the end my goal isn't to argue the ends and outs of what is and what isn't a personal attack or what is and what isn't childish, I just want people to speak with a degree of intelligence and mutual self respect, I think it would solve many problems today not to mention reduce the political rage many people have towards their political counter parts. If you just want to put this aside and continue on without all the childish remarks or personal attacks from both of us, I'd be more than willing.
    Read the rules.

    Secondly, I owe no "mutual respect" to occutards. America is got a big dose of disrespect to hand back to the Occuscum in Nov 2012.

    Hopefully the mods will clean up your mess lest this place turn into a cesspool.

    Not true. Many jurisdictions require permits in order to have a group beyond a certain size assemble, as there are numerous safety codes that must be adhered to, and other considerations. In many cases insurance bonds are required as well. All Constitutional.

    See the hypocrisy of your comment?
    Not when the financial sector is getting away with wasting billions of dollars to clean up their mess.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Now you aren't even trying to do anything but make people angry and stroke your own ego by doing it. Real childish.

The cities could have said no tents periods. The cities could have said no permits, you will just have to go home at COB and come back the next day to protest in the parks.
    I can see the delima here. However, in the end since this is the exerciese of a right; namely protest and assembly that we must accept this as a consequence of freedom. I fear too many people forget consequence.

    How much does gun ownership cost us? We have a lot of gun crime and a lot of legal, medical, and social dynamics which feed into it and cost us all money. Certainly there would always be some amount of gun crime; but if we took very authoratative measures to remove guns physically we could decrease that number greatly. Do we sue gun owners? Do we sue gun companies? No, crime and the other costs associated with gun ownership are a consequence of freedom. One which must be borne out if we are to maintain freedom.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Non-peaceful protesters should be brought up on criminal charges, but peaceful protesters are exerting their first amendment rights exactly as the Constitution intended. For even considering making peaceful protesters pay for this, Carmen Trutanich has shown ignorance of the Constitution that should not be acceptable in someone working for an agency expected to uphold it.
