    I posted the text of the First Amendment in full, and even gave you a link explaining the Peaceable Assembly Clause. Your ignorance, whether intentional or not, is not an excuse to deprive The People of their Constitutionally afforded Rights.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Please explain to me how your right to Peacable Assembly overrides my right to utilize a public way which my tax dollars pay for as much as yours do? The moment your "Peacable Assembly" gets in the way of where I have to go, I'm going to run your ass over and worry about the consequences later.

    It's your right to Peaceable Assembly too. Not liking what they have to say is not an argument, since this law was put into effect to protect unpopular speech. You have no absolutely no right to murder, especially those who are exercising their rights. If you don't like it, fine, nobody is forcing you to like anything, but taking away their rights means your rights can just as easily be removed by people who don't like point of view. It's a double edged sword.

    It's not ignoragence it's a legiement question about how right to assembly gives you the right to block commerce, private and public property ?

    I think you're missing the point. I don't want to assemble. I want to be able to navigate the PUBLIC STREETS without being stopped by a band of over-educated, unemployed morons in Tommy Hillfiger shirts and bermuda shorts because they've decided to have their toddler-like temper tantrum at the fact that their $200K degree in Pre-Modern Art doesn't actually guarantee them a job in the REAL WORLD and now the bank is gonna take away their car, their condo, etc.... because they can't pay the bills.

    Remember, I'm an Authoritarian. Most of these OWSers (and Tea Partiers) don't want to think about what would happen to their "Right to Peacable Assembly" if I were in charge.

    with a permit, it is indeed legal to block traffic and block folks from entering stores and walking down streets.

    Which is your option, however others do choose to protest, which is their constitutional right.

    I don't know you, so I'm not sure if your first sentence is serious, or sarcasm. However, we have a Constitution for a reason. It protects them just as much as it protects you. In the end you're just a regular nobody, no different than the rest of the populace.

    The right to Peaceable Assembly in the Constitution gives the right for anyone to protest, anytime and anywhere they want.

    Nothing in it overrides—nor should rationally be assumed to override—the right of other people who aren't part of the protest, to peaceably go about their own business without undue interference or obstruction from the protesters.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
