    If they cannot or will not do this , then some goos sealing tape across the mouth and a straight jacket are in order.
    Both political parties do this and should be ashamed of themselves.

    I suspect that "Libertarians" would like to see health care regressed to that of 200 years ago, when the rich could have a doctor close at hand and the poor would just die...
    I say its about time we joined the rest of the civilized world and had health care for all, as a right, but limited, of course..

    What do you think of the union thugs assaulting a protester? If the protester was being disrespectful, maybe he deserved the thug assault - its probably no worse than my idea of the tape and straight-jacket...


    Why do you have this one sided opinion, that you claim is generic and universal, but you can not, not once bring yourself to criticize any left wing actions?


    it reeks of your hyper-partisan hackery....
    I doubt if either side is "clean". All participants should pay an entrance fee, this will offset the cost of the police.
    As soon as anyone misbehaves, he should be escorted from the premises.
    The public debates/rallies are best left to gentlemen, if there are any..

    Legal Definition of Misdemeanor

    Just like torture isn't really torture right? (It's "Enhanced Interrogation?)

    A misdemeanor is in fact a crime for which you can be arrested, tried & incarcerated....Anyone want to argue that point?
    Yes, there is a huge gray area here. A very high level of well trained police is necessary; but at times , its an impossible task..
    A true moderator is a must.. the instant anyone acts out of turn, he is escorted...
    Maybe we should bring back the old practice of dueling.

    Reading comprehension is critical. Congress is not charged with seeing to it that people may peaceably assemble. They simply can't pass a law prohibiting it.

    This thread still fails.
