BANGOR, Maine — Occupy protesters in Bangor, Aroostook County, Portland and Augusta all are readying themselves for a long winter’s stay as the municipal rules governing their occupations — and cold temperatures — increase.

They’re also brushing up on their knowledge of municipal regulations, and so are community officials.

Please vote yes. Occupiers are holding the city hostage legally. Poll down on the right side, halfway down.

84% YES!!! The bastards should always be forced to get parade permits, demonstration permits, public displays of fetid behavior permits, etc., etc., etc...

At least all the permits and fees demanded of TeaParties across the exceptional American nation!!!

I voted yes per your request, but I don’t think they should be allowed to “camp” on city land, period.

Is there currently an ordinance against camping on city property? If so then yes they should get a permit. If no then let them stay and fight them with TRUTH. It might be harder but it is the right way to fight this. Law is crap and truth is truth.

I hear you, but anything to make them see they have no support among the population. Psych war here.

The Anarchist bass turds hate the Constitution but they’ll invoke it when it suits their purposes.

Time to bring out the K-9 units for some happy doggies fun time and clear out the parks.

Over 90% of the responses thought they should get a permit when I FReeped.

Just stop it!

These OWS (Obama World Squatters) are violating the LOITERING laws of EVERY city that they “camp” in.

So just stop it by enforcing, (with pepper spray if necessary), the local loitering laws.

Wait a second. Aren’t they already required to do this? Whenever we had a Tea Party rally we had to get permits, make sure the area was left clean and there was no camping out and disrupting traffic.

Would anyone and everyone else be allowed to camp there? The article makes it sound like the city officials have no idea.

Why did the Occupier cross the road?

•Because his Mom called and said, “It’s time to come home, honey.”
•Because ‘Ketchup’ broke her glasses during a fit of righteous crying and had to go to Lynz-Krafterz.
•Because some radicals thought “free love” meant “unsolicited surprise sex.”
•Because three homeless guys were occupying his tent “Help, police...”
•Because a few “more-equal-than-thous” (aka, Party people) appropriated [sic, smoked up] his stach for the Greater Good™ — he had to score another bag of kind bud
•Because the police car looked like a port-o-john
