Did anyone watch the footage of the protesters? Big vehicles moving around, supposedly guys on horseback moving cattle, a few officers, at least one with a dogs, and shrieking, screaming, in your face people. I'm betting the first amendment "cage" was set up to reduce the potential problems with interactions. The woman I watched screaming at the dog officer would have been bitten by my dog. She's an idiot. I wonder if she is even aware of the facts of the issue.
This is one of those situations that just baffles me. The Occupy folks were practicing "civil" disobedience (from the tapes that I saw), fairly quietly taking space, and acting in a relatively respectful manner. Chanting. The right and most Tea Party folks I saw coverage of were adamant that they needed to be corralled, herded, arrested, etc.
Now you get a guy who it appears been mooching off the public for years, but he's a rancher. The heart of the country. What a crock. The right and the Tea Party folks are out in force, screaming, yelling, acting like a mob, and people want to defend their right to act like douchebags. Next thing you know they'll be defending the house and senate for being a bunch of grandstanding, self-interested, profiteering waste of spaces.
