2. So offer the Occupiers some coffee at reduced rates
Show that you're not hostile to them.

3. That is not the point.
This is my place of refuge from the agony of the Repukes I sometimes have to put up with. I do not need politics to invade my haven.

4. And yet you host the Mayor and Company?
Politics is already in your 'haven'.

5. My thought exactly. So have a special. All coffee $0.99
you'll make a fortune and earn much publicity and goodwill.

7. Mayor will not be here. And no one comes to these things anyway.
But the Cops like to get there coffee here and they do not like the commotion caused by this stuff. And All they will be doing is bring heat on a liberal haven. There are a lot of thing that is and will be set into motion Sat. from this, and none of it good for C-street!

8. OCCUPY did not bring the heat on your liberal haven.
.
.
.
Knowing the political atmosphere and the potential for OCCUPY to
show up... the "Mayors commission on human rights" brought the
heat by choosing a commercial outlet to have their meeting.
.
.
.
I understand your problem -- but please lay the "blame" where
it belongs -- the powers-that-be put ENOUGH of that kind of
propaganda out there already.
.
.
.
I was part of a movement to change our community radio station.
We showed up to quietly demonstrate during one of Tucson's
semi-annual Street Fairs in a commercial district.
.
Station management went to the local businesses and said that
we were going to bring down the enjoyment of those in attendance
(going as far as distributing a leaflet blaming one of their
neighbor's businesses for supporting us -- this business was
also a LONG-term supporter of the station).
.
They even tried to sic law enforcement on us -- the cops laughed
and told us we were some of the NICEST demonstrators they ever
had to deal with down there.
.
.
So PLEASE -- don't blame OCCUPY for the problem -- you're falling
right into the hands of the 1% along with all those others.
.

10. "Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor"-What some were once willing
to give up for freedom. and you're complaining about your comfort zone.
