    Could be a simple mistake. But you certainly all but suggested otherwise.

    Funny... you seem to know a lot about Fox news. You should watch something else.
    I've seen enough of their pap. I recall Oliely's little "Holiday Ornament" gaffe. Rather hilarious actually.

    The use of the public property is important. For example, you wouldn't want people wandering around a military base, the US mint, the back of a post office, or similar. So I don't see a problem with a permit being needed for this.

    Now if it were a park or something, yeah, I would agree with you.

    Look at the examples that you gave and what they do/have then look at the DMV and what it has/does. What is the huge difference between the two?

    However, the DMV is open to the public, is it now? In addition, this particular DMV wasn't even open yet.

    Quote from article:
    “He does not have the right to intimidate others and force them to listen and impede their ability to do normal business activities such as going to the DMV.”
    This means that I can have the asshat behind me who insists on talking loudly on their cell phone arrested for "forcing" me to listen about their bowel movements, right?

    That's not always true though, sometimes you do have to have permits, etc.

    I'm not saying this is that situation, but it's not always cut and dry just because it is public property.

    There are sometimes rules and procedures that you have to go by and I'm not sure if that applies here or not.

    First, it's not a "demonstration". Second, the Riverside California proccess identifies a permit is required on public land when an event is "organized"

    BTW.. Hemet California is in Riverside County. This was not organized... therefore no permit was needed.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
