Full story: Los Angeles Times

Thirty-two people were arrested early Monday as Oakland police and assisting agencies cleared the civic center Occupy encampment for the second time in less than a month, asserting that "absolutely no lodging" will be permitted moving forward.

This is just a way to try and break up and stop people taking a stand against the criminals that are running this country.Hopefully the protest will continue.

We had to bring the camp to an end before more people were hurt, she said before issuing a plea to protesters throughout the region:Were asking everyone to respect my citys decision to close the encampment even if we support the movement.

Here is how it should read:

We had to bring the camp to an end before more people in Wall Street were offended, she said before issuing a plea to protesters throughout the region:Were asking everyone to respect the rich, white portion my citys decision to close the encampment even if we support the Wall Street crimnals.

Mayor Quan just kissed her/its political career away forever. She/it should resign.

Purple Gurl is partially right. Mayor Quan is a finished disaster. But for other reasons. She totally botched this protest from the beginning. Once the city health inspectors deemed the encampment unsafe for humans, that should have been it. But no, Quan paid little attention to public safety and now Oakland citizens and businesses will need to fork over another five million dollars to keep the downtown safe. Hey Purple "Gurl", that's five million that could have been spent on education, parks, roads, or anything else to improve the city. No wonder Oakland has turned into such a dump, with ignorant people such as yourself and Quan. You deserve each other.

Horsehit! The people on Wall Street really don't give a rat's ass what you wackos are doing out there and either does anyone else. All you are doing is assure that a Republican President will be elected next year with your disregard for laws and rioting in the streets. Nothing to do with suppression of free speech either. You can protest PEACEFULLY all day but their are laws against overnight camping, urinating in the streets, jacking off and f***ing in the streets, turning parts of major cities into pig pens, disrupting the rights of other people. Your parents obviously never told you pampered little peckerheads and burned out hippies that your s**t stinks!

Have you not come to the realization yet that dem and repub are both exactly the same?? It is all just a ruse to keep people like you optimistic that every 4 or 8 years things will change when in reality the faces may change but the game will stay the same until people stand up and demand it change.

Hmmm...the Democrats seem to be in favor of higher taxes for the fat cats, affordable health care for us all, increased services for the needy, infrastructure and transportation improvements, less spending on defense, increased education spending, etc. etc. etc. and the Republicans are against all those things. Doesn't sound like they are exactly the same to me! But to a leftist lunatic like you who would like to see a combo of radical nut cases like Ralph Nader and Cindy Sheehan in charge of a totally socialist regime I can understand your thinking!

You really think a bunch of unorganized slackers and malcontents bellowing and shitting in the streets is going to do it? They haven't got any more solution than they have brains. Tell them to STFU. Oh I forgot...free speech applies to them but not to nobody who disagrees with them or you. Typical hypocritical leftist lunacy!

I have compared the parties to cigarette brands. They taste a little different, target different people, and have a different image, but they are all made with tobacco, and they all can kill you.

Hey, if it is so unsanitary, then why not let them rot in their own filth, then haul off the corpses by the truckload? Sometimes the way to get rid of enemies is to give them what they really want.

The tent city stinks to high heaven already! Rotten corpses ain't gonna' help the surrounding neighborhood! Besides the slackers would just be blaming the establishment for not rushing in and not providing 24/7 food, health care, high speed internet, and flat screen plasmas to hook up their iPads to. Oh yeah free Starbucks grande lattes for everybody! You know what I'm sayin' homie?

I've forced nothing. You don't have to read any of it. I am simply stating my own opinion, which I have a right to do under the Constitution. It seems the anti group and the real activists themselves are the real ones trying to force their views. I fit into neither group. Take care.

Who said you FORCED anything? I just stated what you said (that both major political parties are the same) was BULLSHIT! That's MY opinion! I have the same right to free speech as you and the rest of us do! What part of that don't you understand?

Where I beg to differ from the "Occupy" movement is while I absolutely defend their right to protest I draw the line where they think they can break laws for their own convenience. They are not above the law! I also deplore the violence that a minority (those pimply faced anarchist PUNKS!) has engaged in. As a whole I don't think they've accomplished anything except alienate people that they need to have on their side. Their excesses have given the far right more ammo and pushed us even further towards a Republican President and Republican dominated Congress in 2012...and that's pathetic!

And your solution other than protesting is...

BTW, If you can't answer this by now everyone knows you are a disinfo troll.


I'm a Republican/Libertarian but what's in a label.

The point is I like capitalism, not crony capitalism where the government chooses winners and losers based on bribes.

I can't believe no one else sees all the BS being broadcasted by paid government trolls. America is in so much trouble if we bow down to this corrupt government.
