    No one I know is saying that the obnoxious whining sheep don't have a right to protest.

    Colin Powell isn't a Republican. He's an asswipe.

    He's not a far right hack but he is a Republican, someone dedicated to the Constitution not his party.

    Really

    I noticed over the weekend the police are completely shutting them down and moving them in some places. Kinda like China if you ask me.

    But then who said the rich and powerful couldn't shut down a bunch of whiners who wanted an education without going in debt for it. Who said they couldn't shut down a bunch of whiners who wanted a decent job with decent health care.

    Who said they couldn't shut down a bunch of whiners who wanted to quit working before they are 70 years old. The rich have taken over our government and our republic.

    Yea, well the concept of protesting is, but what these idiots are doing doesn't fall into that category. Taking over public and private spaces, spreading disease, letting rapists go unreported, crapping and pissing anywhere they want, refusing to feed the homeless not to mention costing the taxpayers and businesses thousands and thousands of dollars, are definitely not apple pie.

    I used to respect Colin Powell, somehow he's becoming short sighted as he ages.

    First, how can someone not be dedicated to the Constitution and dedicated to the Constitution?

    Second, Colin Powell has a history of poor choices in regards to politics. I appreciate his service, but he is far from a good judge of character when it comes to politics, policies, and people.

    Even you on the left think he has been easily decieved before in the past. Do you honestly think he can continually be wrong about things and remain a credible source?

    There is nothing American about seeking to overthrow the Constitution and the Republic. Our liberty is what makes us American. Trying to overthrow that liberty isn't.

    So you seriously don't understand the difference between protesting and camping on private and public property? You don't know the difference between protesting and rape, assault, drug abuse, vandalism, public defecation and urination, rioting, and encouraging violent rebellion?
