OK, this is now getting silly. Occupy Denver people are warning that their people could die of hypothermia tonight if the cops don't let them set up tents.
First they're demanding to be allowed to stay in a park after curfew, then they're demanding to be allowed tents. Next they'll be demanding food and water, etc.
Let's imagine what Washington and his men were doing at Valley Forge. If they were acting like the Denver protesters, they'd be demanding that the British give them tents and fuel.
Look: when you signed up for occupation, you didn't sign up for good weather. The cops do not "owe" you permission to set up tents, any more than they "owe" you free rain ponchos if you were in the park before curfew.
The sense of entitlement is amazing. This constant whining and crying is not a sign of strength or resolve. It just looks silly and babyish. Do what your forefathers did, either tough it out, or set up your tents in defiance and keep the cops from tearing down your tents. WTF is this protest movement about anyway? It seems to be about "We, the 99%, can do whatever we want when we want to, and if you don't let us do it, why then you're brutes brutes vicious brutes!"
This is simply grandstanding, and pretty soon the American public is going to realize that you've got a lot of bluster and nothing behind it.
I wouldn't want any of you in charge of me. Spoiled brats, and stupidly one-track minded to boot.
