    what are they so afraid of? People are peacefully using their Right to protest and are not causing any problems.
    TPTB are using tons of money with the police deploying to the protests.
    I thought the cities were broke?
    Cuts to all social programs because they are broke, but millions of dollars of OUR taxes given to the police, not to mention all of the toys they get to buy courtesy of DHS.
    Chickenshits.  All of them.

      The Republicans run as hard and as fast to the right as they can.  Eventually they do something that is over the line, and Democrats step in and move the line toward the left a bit and the process restarts.  The corporations are afraid of the real citizens united, not some pro-corporate astroturf but actual citizens standing together and changing the system.  The 1% enjoy the system we have where they can play both parties into giving them nearly everything they want to detriment of the rest of society.
