  •  Yeah, the million bucks (0+ / 0-)

    is a bit silly ... but then those claims are always silly from afar.

    Oh, and they weren't "bemused" by Occupy, they were scared shitless by Occupy and they squished it with force.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

    Who is twigg?

    •  The SCOTUS police did not squish Occupy, (0+ / 0-)

      nor did they attempt to, by force or otherwise. Their scope is quite limited, and they have little interest beyond their turf. The U.S. Marshals would have been aware of the planned disruptions and might have beefed up for the day, but they are not remotely staffed well enough to go on some anti-Occupy crusade. Perhaps we have different sources at the Court, but mine were unimpressed with the demonstrations compared to crowds that have turned out for other causes.
