The dancing at the Jefferson Memorial is not just about dancing. It's about respect.

I like many of you was disturbed to find out that dancing at the Jefferson Memorial was outlawed by some judge. It appears to be a simple matter, but it's symbolic for far more. People in the US have to endure various forms of abuse and disrespect from authority figures. Some of them are politicians like Paul Ryan or Alan West. Others are cops who forget the concept of proportional force. And others disrespect the electoral process by changing election laws and abusing redistricting. So arresting people for dancing at a revolutionaries memorial is just too much. It's another infringemnet of the first amendment and a theft of our rights.

Now over 2600 people have signed up for an event where they know arrest is a real possibility. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=150453268357946#!... The government is playing with fire if they clamp down on these people. Others have proven what "harrasment and humiliation" can lead to.
