112. And you don't think the numbers will increase -- ???
Edited on Mon Dec-05-11 06:30 PM by defendandprotect
And you're concentrating still on the most meaningless part of this thread --

puting up a structure --

If you want to discuss the right to free assembly and what it may encompass, let's begin

with whether or not we feel that right is precluded if you don't have a permit?


There is an OCCUPY DC -- nor are legislators able to ignore OWS in DC or anywhere else.


Think the intro to this comment is ... "my opinion is" ...

And if OWS is about changing the system, then merely 'occupying' some public space will not do that. So if OWS is truly evolving as some have claimed, I think it's about time it evolved to more directly confront the cause of our current inequal system.

The cause of the "current" inequality is Wall Street/capitalism/corporatism --

And the fact that Obama is again loaded down with Wall Street money which doesn't signal

any positive change in his corporate agenda if he is re-elected.



On edit:
And yeah, the 'fanatics' part was an over-reaction on my part. I apologize.


Actually, I think it is the way that you see supporters of OWS.

But thank you for retracting it!


:)
