In Response to Re: OWS New York
[QUOTE]I believe in OWS 's right of public protest and I think that they have helped change the debate to a question of fairness but if they think that destroying public or private property is a good thing they need to have their collected heads exams.

I couldn't disagree more. From the start, the OWS movement has defied the rule of law, has had a muddled message, and has embraced those who seek to do us harm. They want to protest? Fine. Get a permit like everyone else. They want socialism? fine. do it at the ballot box.
From the outset, the OWS movement has not been about working within the established process, but outside of it, which is fine, until they: Occupy public space to the exclusion of others, disrupt the lives of those going to/from work, destroy public property, and injure others.
I find it interesting how Obama, Pelosi, and other big time Democrats have embraced this movement. They are either fools or wish the average man ill. In any case, they are not worthy of the offices they hold with such an endorsement to operate outside the rule of law.
I agree with you on the second part of your post.
