yeah, cops do like to push that 'no loitering' rule around so they can be human bulldozers moving anyone from anywhere they dont want them to be
police by and large dont actually enforce laws they more enforce corporate policy (POLICe / POLICy) hence why they throw around that 'do you understand' line meaning like a contract 'do you agree to the terms and conditions"

You'd really appreciate the pacifist stance of the police when there are hundreds of angry people shouting about something right outside your office/residence. A little thing called "mob mentality" is exactly why police show up. When people get in a large group and begin to shout about something that gets under their skin, there are some who will inevitably lose control. Without conscious thought they will become aggressive and possibly begin causing a public disturbance. If intimidation by a police force allows you no other option than to get violent, then you've got some behavioral disorders that need addressing. What pisses me off is that there hasn't been a well-known protest yet where the police were the only ones throwing punches (like with Ghandi). If not a single protester lifted a finger against the attack by police, we'd all be able to see how dumb it was. But fire will be met with fire, and trust me, the police burn much brighter than any protester.
I'd be rather pissed if my house got ransacked or spray-painted by some "viva la revolution" pisshead because the police decided to stay back on that one.
By the way, I am by no means claiming that police don't incite violence during some protests. There's tonnes of foul play on both sides. Any realist would look at a rally-turned-bad and simply leave. When a protest turns ugly for whatever reason, the police will regard anyone who even stays at the rally as a threat because the police must divide their attention to monitor them. Its a logical way of thinking when you're under extreme pressure. Those idiots who stand by and just watch the car burn at some riot are just as much at fault as the dudes with the gas and lighters since they're pressence puts the police under stress.

I'm just very upset with the way our country is going right now. To the point that I hold no respect for any form of government representation. The people are constantly being fucked, then having to pay for the fact that they got fucked. I truly wish that things would change peacefully. Though the way this world is going, the only thing I see going is the american people being pushed to the point of pushing back. I don't like the idea of another civil war, I just no that's the only way that the people can gain their power back.
With that said, I am also aware that if this country to turn to a civil war, it would be complete chaos and would not end well for the people. Too many other countries are waiting for the chance to slither into our borders and our government has too many weapons which could be used against us.
SO, I take that back, there is one other option I can see that will cause the U.S. citizens to regain power, though that won't happen. An invasion from another country would quickly cause nnearly everyone to drop the whole "Obama care is fucking us" and switch it to "Those commies are invading us!? not on my fucking watch."

The way I see it, there are two things that drive change in this world, which are overwhelming violence and debate (the latter being an awful thing that I think should always be avoided, for the record). The entire idea of a protest is trying to draw some sick middle-ground between these two options. With overwhelming violence, the shock and awe will bring about change rapidly, but chances are that its for a bad reason. A good reason my be actually storming the damn white house and having the politicians do something about the problems with the people literally watching them. Debate on the other hand, is an orderly meeting of parties who hash out a resolution to a problem with a point - counterpoint discussion. This is the best way to solve problems in a good way.
Protesting takes the virtues of both and throws them both out the window. Protesters are people who are either partly or completely not committed to violence as a means to an end. At the same time, they are not open to reasonable debate and often claim during interviews that they are not there to hear anyone else's opinion. Sure, the event may have happened and the world may have seen that there's an interest in a topic, but protesters who expect a quick change are completely daft. It usually ends up being a bunch of people shouting at each other before they pack up and go home for the day.
This being said, protesting is not redundant. It has its uses in garnering attention about an issue. However, no protest is going to be the end-all for any world problem.
On a side note, as a Canadian I had to chuckle about your idea that there are countries who want to be all up in your shit. Sure there are some out there, but you guys spend so much on defense at the moment that you could fund enough machinery to overthrow most countries within a week. The UN and the partners who rely on your trade revenue would not stand idly by either. Americans used to not scare so easily.

We were once a country of men, now we're to damn worried about offending people and getting sued.
I like you guy, you are one of the few people here I have been able to have a decent in depth conversation with that didn't spiral into a name calling match. Thanks for your insights and opinions on the matter.

I remember my brother and I went in for a Pokemon Y reservation ( I didn't buy it yet ). We went up to the counter, and the usual grettings of the commercial business was traded with the chick behind the counter. My brother said "Yeah, so I've got a reservation for -" and the chick cuts him off and says "Barbie's magical adventure?". After a couple moments of silence, my brother responds "yes. And pokemon Y". To this day, I wonder how long she waited to say that joke.

I'm not going to try and defend steam. They certainly aren't perfect. but what happens is game stores like eb games tell publishers they have to charge that much on all platforms or they wont sell their games. For most cross platform games not getting into EB games is suicide.

Publishers are the reason games come out at $60 dipshit even if gamestop went out of business AAA games would still come out at the same price
