    You don't see an obvious glaring difference between the protestors of the 85006 (and elsewhere, too, to be fair) and elected officials? OK then, let me respectfully spell it out for you.

    The protestors of the 85006 are protesting against conditions and a society in general that do not work for them - issues that to some degree elected officials are responsible for continuing/maintaining. There is a huge obvious difference here that I personally could see from the other side of the planet - it's that loud and obvious. Regardless, there's an explanation for you. Rob

    Thank you. It doesn't address the point but it is indeed an explanation. Thanks for that.

    ? I believe I addressed your point quite well, Alan, but at this point why don't we agree to disagree and let it go? I am of the opinion such is for the best. Rob

    "Martial law" is a monster-under-the-bed used to frighten small children and yank the chains of conspiracy theorists and flat-earthers. Effective civic participation requires fact-based reasoning, not fear-mongering.

    I recommend Rehnquist's nice little book to folks frequently:
