    •  They are very selective about this ruling, and (9+ / 0-)

      only deploy it when it suits their political needs. They do the same with signage.

      obviously.  

      Before the injunction, under the governor's harassment of protesters policy new permitting policy...

      ...groups as small as four were forced to obtain prior permission from the government before they engaged in expression “for the purpose of actively promoting any cause.” The new rules also prohibited people from gathering in the Capitol for any performance, ceremony, presentation, meeting or rally without a permit...
      Just a thought, but protesters could do some creative work-arounds, like rotating groups of protesters, maybe 10-15 at a time, so they don't exceed the 20 limit set at any given time, and keep the protests going with new people, while showing the Gov & his authoritarian staff and police that they can't over-rule the First Amendment or silence critics like some third-world dictatorship.
      •  That's a regular banana hammock republic (0+ / 0-)

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
