Oh, well--I guess these businesses shouldn't have opened near the home of the financial Mafia. Pretty dumb move on their part....

I cant believe how people completely disregard the first amendment when it inconviences their lives and pocketbook.First amendment trumps all other rights. Thats why its first. The second Amendment is the second most important because it guarantees we keep the first and the other 8.

I'm not sure it triumphs all rights. For example, you can't shout "bomb!" in the middle of an airport for no reason.

While I support the OWS, it appears that an unintended byproduct of the camps is hurting some of the 99%. OWS shouldn't be a movement that forsakes it's integrity in order to achieve (a nebulously defined) success.

In short, keep it classy OWS.

Looks like OWS inspired another group's protests.

They're also "sticking it" to the "99%" who work in those establishments. You know... the ones trying to make a living and get by.

It's simple-minded to think that when you hurt a rich person, you somehow help a poor one.
