    Kudos to Amy Brehm, who I suspect is part of the 99%, for giving the useful idiots the boot.

    Yes - good for her. People shouldn't have to put up with it just because the OWS'rs are hiding behind the '1st amendment'

    First amendment doesn't give people the right to **** all over everything or obstruct people's lawful business. You're allowed to associate with anyone you want and peacefully assemble, but if you're destroying property, harrassing people, and interfering in other people's day-to-day lives, you are not peacefully assembling.

    These savages should have gotten the hose months ago.

    Re: Des Moines coffee-shop owner evicts Occupy protesters

    Whats the issue? Are we going to turn what goes on in a coffee shop into an argument? The owner of course has every right to remove someone from their establishment if they don't wish to serve them, and those two individuals were pretty self-righteous and clearly weren't interested in letting anyone else in that establishment enjoy themselves peacefully.

    Personally I hate seeing that kind of arrogance in people, where emotions overrule all logic, its odd but that woman's comments on how "hypocrisy is so pretty" really makes my blood boil, that kind of dismissal and arrogance. Few things get to me more.

    But o well its a small coffee shop, and the two people are like most protestors which is completely arrogant and attention grabbing.

    The first amendment doesn't give you right to trespass. They are fully in their right to protest, but they have no right to be in an establishment that they have been asked to leave.

    Would you be ok if I was in your living room yelling about the type of light bulbs you use?

    Someone should inform these occutards that 1st amendment allows you to peacefully assemble , it does not allow you to harass businesses, trespass, harass people,destroy property or any other **** that occutards are notorious for.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Des Moines coffee-shop owner evicts Occupy protesters

    About four or five Occupiers stood chanting in the middle of the crowded coffee shop before they were told to leave.
    Wow, they are like the .0000000000001 percent.

    Keep up the good work.

    It's their business, they may do as they like on their property.
