#2 they have a constitutional right to peaceful protest. They don't have the right to make themselves heard by everyone, especially when their close proximity to adults with weapons is just begging for an incident. For their own safety they should assemble over in that corner, out of the way....and take the giant paper mache "Bush as Hitler" puppets with you, asshats

#3 protesters were... often out of mind," said Witold J. Walczak, legal director for the ACLU’s Greater Pittsburgh chapter.

Careful, Mr. Walczak -- that could be taken as slander...

#4 Curious, in this venue when a Republican administration starts impinging on individuals rights & privacy, or allows/promotes businesses to do the same it is wholly acceptable. However if a Democrat suggests doing the same then the last trumpet has sounded. Can anybody out there say "Hypocracy"

#5 Hypocrisy? D'oh! at least spell it correctly when you want to throw it around so loosely. These are the same rules invoked when WJC was pres, dimwit

#6 Visited the Old South Meeting Hall this summer with my family on vacation. As an institution the Old South Meeting Hall (where the Boston Tea Party was begun) has allowed speakers with the most contraoversial and reprehensible viewpoints to schedule speeches.

I think that is a very good thing. Nowhere in the pictures that I saw in that historic location did I see evidence that the Old South Meeting Hall was simultaneoulsy scheduled for speeches by groups that violently opposed each other.

Civil debate involves speaking, listening deciding. It is doubtfull that these protesters are interested in civil discourse. They are free to publically schedule and hold their own speeches. We are free to attend or not attend their rallies and speeches as we see fit. Most college campi are more than willing to throw unlimited resources and to provide the finest facilites to allow the radicals to speak.

I gain insight from hearing public figures speak and answer civil questions.

Should I ever want to listen to smelly insane people scream their opinions I will tune in Jerry Springer or COPS.

#7 "Supporters To Unify People Interested Dissidents S.T.U.P.I.D.
Lesbians Or Sadists Engaging Radical Statements L.O.S.E.R.S.
War Investigators Making Progress and Solidarity W.I.M.P.S.
All-knowing Nobodies Usurping the System A.N.U.S."

"Students Wildly Indignant About Nearly Everything (SWINE)..."

All those are keepers. Don't forget Student Communists and Unified Marxists Behind All Grass-roots Statements (S.C.U.M.B.A.G.S.) Or Freedom-hating, All-protesting, Genocide-loving Students (F.A.G.S.)

#8 The Secret Service has one primary mission: to protect the President. The people most likely to harbor someone that would harm the president are kept away. And this doesn't make sense because?

Shakespeare was right: "First, kill all the lawyers." Start with the whiners that the Anti-Christian Lawyers' Union.

#9 "The ACLU complaint lists several incidents where protesters were forced to assemble blocks away from where the president or vice president was speaking, while supporters of the administration’s policy could hold their signs up in front of the building"

eh if true then the secret service rly does not have much of a chance of winning
