Weird. They arrest a man for throwing money but they don't arrest the Black Panthers from keeping people from voting! Oh, but that was in Chicago, not Florida. Had Mr Root been in Chicago they would have just demanded more money.

Root was charged with trespassing.
Evidently the Democrats in Florida don't want their consituents near them, even if it's to make a donation.

Well since it cost the government to cents to make a penny it was a pretty good protest :) The government throws money away by the truck load. Your part of the national debt is $47K. Are you ready to pay up?

But if Obama did it, he'd be lauded for the bailout.
