@39 So if the protesters continue to violate the 7-8 foot buffers, after a time, can the local jurisdiction declare the protest a public nuisance or criminal activity and shut it down?

These people believe that they have God on their side and are not satisfied with speech alone.

Fucking hell, is isn't about speech. People who were trying to enter clinics were blocked from doing so.

Blocking access to a clinic may be illegal, but it happened EVERY DAY before the buffer zones were established. Police don't have the time to permanently staff every clinic.

Many women trying to access these clinics are doing so under horrible circumstances. It is just hateful and mean for judgemental and fucking hypocritical "Christians" to make the experience even worse than it already is.

The counter protesters should use pepper spray at the first sign of interference with someone trying to access the facility.

It's far past time for being polite. Let's also protest outside of people going to church.

@93 What a bullshit post. Because drivers text, and some hooey uncited statistics, the risk of bicyclists plowing down a pedestrian is acceptable. Or something.

And your post was in response to someone whose stepmom was killed by a bicyclist.

Fucking pius POS.

I'm late to this party, but as a pedestrian 95% of the time in San Francisco, and having been stuck twice by bicyclists and having had about dozen of near misses with bicyclists, this idea of not stopping at stop signs is dangerous.

Furthermore, it is an example of the fucking elite, egocentric and 'morally superior' attitudes that plague many cyclists. This discussion is all about bikes vs cars - as if there are no pedestrians.

I hope to create a pedestrian pepper-spay army to defend ourselves against pig-headed drivers and bicyclists. You all suck.

First, sending every ounce of positive energy and love I have to you. You have really touched my heart.

And of course you are feeling broken. While you effectively escaped from your family and created something wonderful for yourself, you never fully processed and dealt with the incredible hurt you must have felt when you had to leave home as a very young woman. Going back there open all of those wounds.

I do recommend any type of therapy that will work for you and your nephew. He is hurting too, no matter how much better it is for him now. Someday in the future, he will experience this same broken feeling that you feel unless the wounds heal.

As for your family, leave them be. Someday they may realize that they were hurtful and hateful. But for now, you and your nephew are better off without them.

Not much has changed. During most of the protests of the last 30 years (wars, nuclear energy, injustice), communists, anarchists and others always try to co-opt the protests into they're own political agenda. I'm not an anarchist or a communist. Frankly, I think that they're idiots. But they have every right to exist and of course the right to speak. But why the fuck do they need to 'invade' demonstrations and marches with their own agenda?

I suspect that is what happened with the Tea Party. While I believe that most of them are ignorant, I do believe that their demonstrations too attracted nutcases - the racists.

Sorry guys, schedule your own demonstration and political activities, and leave us alone.

Because at your best, you all still suck.

Has anyone considered that the tip was appropriate?

I dine out a lot and in the last 20 years, I have left a zero tip maybe 5 times, and each time is was appropriate.

I'm of a mixed-mind on this. Any change will help, and that kids are killing themselves is just horrible.

But being anti-gay is not the only despicable thing found in religions. If they fix the 'gay problem' they'll just find another group to demonize, as can been seen in any history book.

I cannot forgive people of faith and especially their leaders for their hatred and stupidity.

Make all religion illegal.

I guess that should mention that I am NOT an atheist.
