    Okay.... So we get a field.... and we make sure it is level by having it surveyed to ensure that no end is lumpier or higher than the other............

    If we want to be treated as equals our current society is not a good place to be.
    How has society lead us astray that we are all equals?

    I don't believe that.........
    These days people like to use their minority race or female gender as a crutch when it benefits them most.... I despise these people, they are moreso the problem than those who are actually sexist or racist.

    But... that has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the question you have been asked and still have not answered outside of ignorant catch phrases and slogans.

    Without demands, goals, or an agenda....... they feel like nobody can criticize their movement or prove their movement is a farce!!!

    The Mayor and police action in Los Angeles are to be commended and should be a model for the country:

    "I am very glad there's been virtually no violence here," said Villaraigosa in a brief interview after a speech at the Los Angeles Business Council's annual summit. "There's probably been the least amount in the country, even though it was the second largest (Occupy) site."

    With the shut down of the Occupy Wall Street, Occupy L.A. is now the largest remaining encampment in the country, according to city officials. While the mayor has previously stated that the Occupy L.A. protesters can't stay indefinitely at City Hall, he said there was no timeline for the group to leave.

    "There's no deadline," said Villaraigosa.

    "There's a thing called the First Amendment, and they have a right to protest," he added.

    When their encampment turns into a haven for criminal activity..... He'll be ready to invoke a timeline at that time.

    It seems LA has the ability to distinguish between the violent trouble makers and the protesters at large.
