    Try...TRY to not be an idiot. I've not yet seen you successfully pull that off yet...but I AM an eternal optimist. I have always said...Protest. Protest to your hearts content. Protest LEGALLY and to your hearts content. You dont have the right to block streets, public access ways, disrupt commerce, etc. Follow the laws...follow the rules...follow the constitution. If you are too stupid to handle that basic guidance then for your own sake, stay in your basement where you belong.

    It is absolutely illegal without permits. You sound like an unemployed college student that thinks you understand the law and constitution or for that matter the world and in fact havent yet had to work a 40 hour a week job with a paycheck and provide for yourself and still live off of mommy and/or daddy.

    Nope...not an internet badass...unless that image makes you feel all better about yourself.

    And, unfortuntaely, there aren't alot of grassy gnolls for folks to set up camping in downtown Charlotte except where they are (Old City Hall) and the other "Green Spaces" uptown that will also be within the "buffer zone" for the president's safety.

    Freedom...you keep saying this word...I do not think it means what you think it means.
    I think it may be reversed, I'm not sure freedom means what you think it means.

    I think that it's just sorta excuse to remove protest from where protest NEEDS to be. I'd much rather have protest at the events because that's what the protest is for. Once we remove it to the corner so no one has to deal with it or see it or interact with it, you lose a lot of the power of protest. Rights are not to be subjugated to the nearest corner, I'd rather we uphold them fully. The RNC last time pre-arrested folk they thought would be trouble makers. I'm not sure how that could be legal; but in today's day and age government has taken severely aggressive action towards freedom and liberty.

    If you support people doing whatever and wherever and however they want to without regard to the laws of the land, then it is you that has a misguided version of freedom. I think you are thinking more along the lines of 'Anarchy.' History serves as a reminder as to the reason 'why' it has become necessary to create those caged protest zones....primarily because like children, too many of the moronic protesters have proven they arent responsible enough to follow the rules and laws of the land. If they respected the rights of others and the laws they could protest peacefully right there alongside with the 'people' instead of being treated like 'animals'.

    Well, the information I stated was from rumors that I've heard.
    I can't see how the current protest site is within any buffer zones though.... its not exactly close

    Besides, Charlotte's occupiers are quite inconsequential compared to what ive seen from the other cities.....
    Hell, half of them go get hotels overnight and leave their tents up to keep up appearances.
