you obviously don't understand the constitution yourself...the constitution is protection for citizens from government...not the other way around or citizen vs. citizen...so if I were to tell you to shut up...i'm not technically abridging upon your constitutional rights because I am not a government entity that is attempting to abridge upon your freedoms...get it now?

If you wonder what sort of people would have wanted the Sons of Liberty arrested on theft and vandalism charges instead of cheering them on, look no further than this thread.

by the way, I live in Australia and I was able to find your bylaws.
Shouldnt be to hard for residents of the country to do the same before crying foul.

I do not support the actions of the police, and I mentioned earlier that the police would have used a bylaw to remove protesters, well I found them

Sure. Democratic socialists are responsible.

OWS plays right into their hands but that is beside the point.

They are the reason our government is so corrupt and the reason our judicial system is so messed up.

This is not a federal thing, this is a STATE thing. Learn the difference. Period.


Yeah Well... The city/state in question is a STATE of the United States of America, which has a constitution which guarantees every citizen inalienable rights... known as the Bill of Rights...

The quote I provided in the earlier post was from the Bill of Rights if you didnt realize


It's just a state thing? So, my "inalienable rights" do not apply in Boston or New York or Philadelphia or any city or state? That is literally the most pathetic, nonsensical, utterly stupid thing I've heard yet on this forum, and in regard to any argument or opposition against this movement. I honestly do not know what to say.

I was metaphorically speaking...I'm not actually going to tell you to shut up because I actually respect your opinions...and this is something I think you lack quite a bit of to be honest...

#ing hell. Know I'm not supposed to say that, but Jesus this is a place where we are supposed to respect the right if dissent, even if we think it's part of the "script". But if someone is in the streets, taking the risks....

And yes, I repect all of you in the streets, taking that risk, however, I do think you are part of, even if unwittingly,what has been orchestrated....remarkable times and what brought them about call for remarkable measures. Protest is not necessarily remarkable, but I applaud your effort, at the same time.

It's real simple.

These folks need to decide if they are protestors or revolutionaries.

If they are protestors, operating within the law, then they need to either A) vacate the premises in accordance with the law; or B) perhaps allow themselves to be arrested or removed by force in a show of some kind of civil disobedience.

If they are revolutionaries, then, well...that's another story.

Personally I don't think most of these people have the stomach for real revolution, but we shall see.

It's up to them to decide, not me.

They've decided.
They decide that they're protesters, and because of that the laws dont apply to them, they can break any they feel like, and if they get arrested for it then it is "unconstitutional".

Edit - and I'm serious about that.
Its somethiung to do with what happens to peoples brains when they start assembling in large groups. NONE of those protesters would have slept in that park a week ago, and I suspect if asked why, one of the answers would be (as well as safety) that they were not allowed to.
Now, because theres a lot of them, they feel they can.

You see this kind of thing with protests all over the world, people doing things they know are illegal, but as if by magic they just dont care about that anymore.

Well then, one way or another they will discover that things don't work that way...

And then they will have a chance to decide whether to back down or double down.

I think it's more about making a stand, even if it is a little stand on a little local law, because they're really pretty fed up. And it is interesting that so many are like - look, they broke a little municipal law, the police are right to arrest them.

And yet the banks have been trading mortgages on excel spread sheets. No, there's big COMPLICATED crimes up there....let's don't look UP THERE, that hurts our heads. But oh, must be out of the park by 7, that's easy, those criminals, arrest them!

It's all really crazy.

What is this GARBAGE??

I watched the livestream feed for a while. Good firsthand info. Then, when the video stream cuts out, we have to watch the Zeitgeist video which promotes communism and a one-world government!!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??

They're banning people from the chat for discussing political beliefs while RAMMING theirs down our throats. I'm not saying there aren't interesting points about automation killing jobs, but the conclusion that "money is not a necessary incentive" is NOT substantiated, is illogical, and even if it WERE correct, has NO BUSINESS being shoved down the throats of people looking for live info on the protests!

Is this communist garbage being pushed by really, really stupid people, or is it all part of the elite's agenda?

I'm thinking the latter. Things rarely happen by accident. If that is the case, the elite may be in control of the livestream. Keep that in mind while you're there.
