Wouldn’t wearing masks fall under freedom of expression? And wouldn’t anyone protesting (freedom to gather) want to avoid being recognized? Who in their right mind would obey a ban that says, essentially, ‘you cannot wear a mask because we wouldn’t be able to identify you and thus make your life miserable’. Who would go along with that? Ignorant fucking statement. Do you know how many things and rights we have because people stood up for themselves through protest? Don’t be a fucking sheep. Stop reading and watching shit news. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the You are the reason I love to teach shirt for a redress of grievances. Amanda Fleming Some of us have been protesting for 40-50 years & we’re of the “boomer” generation so you might want to stop generalizing. Who do you think brought an end to the Vietnam war, began the environmental movement & civil rights movement, the “Battle in Seattle”, etc. We started it & many of us are still at it. There are a few generations who came after who didn’t get involved. Your accusations aren’t helping “the cause”. Tracy Ingle yawn… pipelines are good, drilling is good, the top 1% pays more taxes than the bottom 90%, what is “fair wages?”, let’s do away with Obamacare, what crimes has President Trump committed? This impeachment stuff has made his poll numbers rise! It’s awesome! Jeremy Catlin to address a few things you said, how are living standards declining? Even the poorest Americans have iPhones! ICE is good – we need more of these brave agents – we are being invaded! Our prisons are keeping us safe. We are locking people up so crime is down. All these are things to celebrate, not protest. Be thankful for them on Thursday!
