Does anyone know where their money comes from? I'd like to know how they can afford to do what they do.

You are wrong, just make screaming and protesting illegal at grave sites and services.
This doesn't mean you want to stop liberals from protesting and waving their hatred and communism signs. That is a not an issue, really.

I care, that's why I asked the question. If you don't know the answer, don't raise your hand. Got it?

They protest everywhere, they were in front of a hospital a few months ago.
Targets of these people can be for almost any reason they have IMO.

Give them enough rope.

Put a microphone in front of these ****birds as often as possible, so that everyone can know what they are all about.

Because they can. Their speech, no matter how idiotic and hateful, is protected. Do you propose that be changed?

I've been reading about the dictatorship in Singapore, and one of the formulas adopted is silencing those you disagree with (or see as political enemies) using sinister methods such as bankrupting them. Is that the idea?

I'm saying that if the laws are not there in place for graveyards and services, maybe Congress should get cracking and start the process of getting one.

We are not allowed to yell fire in a movie theater, so we could IMO live with restrictions at graveyards or services.
Just my opinion. :-)
The problem in my opinion with this argument is that yelling "fire" in a dark, crowded theater, can cause people to panic and run out possibly trampling each other while trying to save their lives. Protesting a lifestyle on public property is not a clear and present danger.

Also too, I think the churches and funeral homes are private property and should recruit law enforcement to enforce no trespassing. Might help some, but I can't imagine how bad these families must feel.
