  4. A bunch of lazy dopers who don’t want to work for a living are protesting over the fact that people that DO work for a living can buy stuff they can’t. Or something, I wasn’t really paying attention.

  8. lazy dopers? seriously? Have you spoken with any of them? A client of mine, lives in a retirement community, teaches piano here in West Seattle for a living…has been there manning phones, giving out information – not exactly a lazy doper. Perceptions…from I’m betting are right-ish wing conservatives, can be so wrong. But my assumptions may be , too. If we don’t start speaking up, all of us, then we must agree with what’s happening to this country. I’m betting we don’t. Time more of us spoke up !. Too bad your commute was disturbed.

  10. Yes..it really is too bad that our commute, child pick up, appointment, etc is…. “disturbed”.
    I guess your “rights” trump the rest of us in your selfish selfness.

  11. The commute wasn’t disturbed at all.

    Re: The “lazy dopers” comment.. its too bad that people who realize they have no clue think they should publicly announce their opinion anyway. Weren’t paying attention? Then you don’t have anything to say.

  12. I”m going to bet the people calling these protesters “dopers” know even less than they do about why they are protesting.
