They murder more innocent people in my city every than we lose troops in the middle east.

That is just one city.

At this point-only a dictator would be able to "solve" the problem.


Or we can continue into complete anarchy.

I vote somewhere in between.

Let me put it this way.

If Bush or Obama would announce a new initiative to put the entire country under 24/7/365 video surveillance, they would be accused of creating a police state. In fact, that's what the whole NSA listening in on cell phone calls is all about.

So the dumbass protestors who are against a police state, advocate for 24/7/365 video surveillance by the police. Not ON the police. By the police.

1984.

Thought police.

Doublespeak.

"We must STOP the police state! So please video and record all our movements!!"

The man in the video was trying to do the right thing--go to work to support his family without waiting for a handout. He had a job. He had responsibilities. The agitators who were blocking him didn't have to be at work. They don't have jobs--or agitating IS their job.


Speak to the facts and what you do know.....
The people who protested were also trying to do the RIGHT THING.....figure it out....


Blocking the street and keeping law abiding citizens from going to work, to hospital, to pick up or drop off kids, or school is not "doing the right thing" and is the tactic of intimidation just like the Brownshirts of prewar Germany who were also convinced that they were "doing the right thing."


geez.....anyone heard of turning your car or truck around and going down an alternative route?....you know, like if public works were repaving the street, the exact same thing that happens in thousands of places across the US each year.......c'mon, a little critical-thinking skills are badly needed on ATS

Maybe this has nothing to do with the ethics of protesting and is more about why a person would feel the need to be so paranoid about losing there job because of circumstances that are no fault of there own. You couldn't even (lawfully) get a formal warning for that over here.

It is the very definition of ironic though, that citizens of the (apparent) 'land of the free' would find a argument to demoralize peoples born right to peaceful protest.


First, it's not a "peaceful protest" if you're doing something illegal.


Illegal!?! The first amendment specifically gives the right for citizens to peacefully assemble for the purpose to peacefully protest. So technically speaking, the only thing illegal is any law that denies this right.

But I suppose that's why this so called 'constitution' has proved it self so flawed. You can't protest without asking the police first, the NSA is watching every move you make. But at least you've got your guns, yeah?.......... Just saying.

I sympathise with the protesters.

I take my hat off to them for doing something to change what they're not happy with, instead of complaining and going with the flow.


Yes, idiocy is given equal weight in today's environment.

Not happy?

Awesome.

It's somebody else's fault.

Whose?

Doesn't matter.

Just go out and force your will on random strangers trying to support their families take care of people in hospitals.

Not sure why you would support moronic behavior. Would you support them coming to your home and protesting you?

I wouldn't recommend turning your car around on the freeway.

If you're somewhere else and hear about it, then you have the opportunity to make choices.

The road that was blocked was I-5. They blocked it just before the next exit. Those who could get off and take another route did, several miles back.

Maybe you should begin this call for critical thinking by exemplifying some.

Didn't need to watch the video to know whose side you're on, right jimmy?

This protest/illegal impediment of travel took place on a divided freeway. Of course this was a deliberate choice, becuase the goal was not simply to protest. The goal was disruption and destruction.

Critical thinking skills: kind of hard to turn your car around and drive through the trees to go back the other direction. Oh, go the wrong way back to an off ramp? That's safe. And legal.

If public works is repaving a street, don't they usually mark it as such? Put up signs? Have flag men? Or leave one lane open so people can get by?

The irony of complaining about a lack of critical thinking skills here mystifies me.

The first amendment gives you the right to assemble. It says nothing about protesting.

Furthermore, it is subject to the time place manner test. In a nutshell: your right to assembly isn't carte blanche to shut down a freeway.

Man, I mean no offense but when it comes to liberty your opinions reek of brainwashed modern Progressivism. I know from other threads that you are a young guy. You seem smart enough. Keep learning and try to question your own beliefs as often as you question those of others. There is still hope for you, grasshopper.

The beauty of the US Constitution is not immediately understood. This is because human nature is not easily understood. Almost every problem America faces today -- including the rise of the surveillance state -- is the result of a failure to uphold the Constitution.

Oh, it's no joke. I think needing permission as to when and where a group decides to protest, is in direct conflict with the first amendment right to "peacefully assemble".

But like I originally said, as long as they don't take the guns off you, then most Americans seem more than happy to let the government violate there constitutional rights.

You do not have a right to disrupt my daily business to simply make your point, especially when I have no part in your grievance to begin with. You say you care about all the little people? Well it is the little people who are being made to suffer through your protest.

What it boils down to for me is that people don't want change because it hurts their pocket book. I am guilty as well.

I am going to vote conservative this coming election. Not because they are picking fights, supporting Israel and failing to protect our lakes... I am voting conservative because I like my pocket book and I want to like it more next year.

My compliance is for sale. Seriously.

Lots of armchair warriors in this thread.

Have any of you ever gotten off your lazy ass and done anything against many of the worlds injustices or do you just criticize the actions of others?
