as far as the "local residents", it will all be over soon and things can go right back to there
normal problems, like paying there mortgages and taxes, and not having jobs, perhaps
soon there will be no trash pick up in cities cause our government is out of money.
And as far as a problem at the local McDonalds and Burger King, lets not go into how useless those establishments truly are, I mean everything they serve is unhealthy, they
use parttime workers not paying them a dime for benefits, so a few unclean bathrooms
oh well they'll live another day to ruin the health of many more brainwashed americans.
And your complaning about Leftists, I guess your letting us know your a sweet rightist
that doesnt care about this country right? How about another 10 years for the war in
Iraq? Right?

But how hard is it to do so respectfully? Sure, many of them are probably decent people. Yet there seems to be a large number of them who dont know how to respect others, who dont know how to respect the law, and dont know how to not be obstructive.

And yes, its great to be able to protest. But if you look at some of the interviews, many of these people dont really seem to know why they are there.

Also, it seems many of the worst are attracted to this protest. Admitted communists, anti-semites, marxists. And we cant forget the stoners.

Either people have honor and integrity or they do not. These people are only mad because their ENTITLEMENT ran out and now they are faced with the potential horror of going to work for a living.

They are the dregs of society. We'd be better off without them.

Yeah and the take america back protest did abolutely nothing perhaps cause they
were all walking around picking up all the trash, and mowing, and weeding
the grounds, and washing the sidewalks too.
Anyone that even listens to Glen Beck ought to get out of this country!

Be careful with this line of reasoning.

The most hedonist of all the deals...Burning man...is famous for completing obliterating its footprint and leaving the desert better than it was.

And they really are one of the ends of one of the branches...

Glenn Beck would not stand a chance in comparison.

And by the way the Wall Street occupiers seem more anarchist to me than any political belief...in fact they don't seem to be able to articulate what it is they are against...

America needs laws that strictly prohibit all demonstrations.

Is there some kind of law preventing charging for use of one's facilities? Ie, either you buy something or you pay to use my property. Seems perfectly reasonable.

All we really need is a return to the US Constitution. Our country would not be in this mess had the Marx lovers not hijacked it starting with Wilson and grown the federal government to its current abuses of power.

I'm sure people were annoyed at the Civil rights and Vietnam protests as well, but guess what? Social change doesn't come easy. I'm sure the government and elites would all like us to go back in our homes and get numbed down by television.
