    I'm not her, but when I read it, rather than gloss over it, I simply rearranged the word order to read "obey authority obsequiously".

    I hope that helps.

    we all just assumed that part was hysterical hyperbole.

    just because you have the right to do something, it doesn't give you the right break other laws and ordinances to do it.

    guaranteed, the ones crying about the cops beating these people would be the first to call the cops if these people tried to assemble on their front lawn.
    yes, let's conflate assembly on a private yard with a public square

    Laws are laws for reasons, bubba. If I'm trying to make a political point I'm not going to be the jackass intentionally breaking laws to make a point. I have no respect for people who disrespect authority for the sake of disrespecting authority. Read the article I posted. Stop standing on that dilapidated soap box and learn a little bit about the situation before you start screaming about rights violations and bowing to authority and all the other nonsense you keep spewing about this.

    The fact is, the protesters were asked to obey the law and given quite some time in which to do it. Many did obey, but those who did not were arrested. Those who resisted arrest (one cop was hit in the face by a protester, for example) were met with equal or due force.

    So what exactly are you trying to say here? That sometimes you should just go ahead and disregard the law to make a point? What are the limitations on that? When does direct violation of the law require or justify legal action against the violator? It's okay so long as the law-breaker is exercising one of their consitutional rights simultaneously? In that case can I strip naked and piss on your kid's playground during recess so long as I'm carrying a "end all oil subsidies" sign at the same time? I mean, what's a little indecent exposure in the exercise of my free speech rights, right?

    once again...no one was asked to give up their right to assemble. but I guess you guys are perfectly fine with allowing people to waste taxpayer money by destroying public property.

    For the last time, bubba..Their rights were not restricted, inhibited, or removed. By moving to the designated spot they were not abandoning their rights in anyway. This notion is completely fabricated and the argument is disingenous.

    So, the cops are now beating up war veterans. This is really disgusting and just goes to show the heartlessness of the cops that did this horrendous act.

    so why is it relevant to mention the law breaker was a war veteran?........just because you were deployed to another part of the world to do what you volunteered to do doesnt make you some kind of God, i'll admit that a certain amount of respect should given for it but i was raised in a military family and served myself....believe me, i knew people who were a-holes when then came in and they still were when they got out.....being a war vet doesnt give somebody above the law status

    The main question to be asked here, however, is what the **** happened to this:



    Or does the United States Constitution apply to everyone except Boston police? Don't know about anyone else, but I would call that domestic terrorism.
    Why not use the governments monster against the government peons? Some of these cops are straight up accepting money from governments to dispense silence and terror in an attempt to quash voices.

    Looks like a law was made that stops a persons right to peacably assemble.

    Thats like saying you have the right to drink water. But, only 1 cup a day.

    Or you have a right to stay up as long as you want but, im giving you a sedative at 10.

    Or you can take a dump.... But im going to install this colostomy bag.

    I've supported the OWS thing. They need to be careful though, people are not going to support them if they start getting into fights with the police and not respecting the property of others.
