So American citizens can’t get near them, but South American prostitutes can.

Unless those agents are protecting a Republican!

Then he’ll fund and staf the SEIU protesters.

Hey look at it this way, fewer protestors to be propositioned or fantasized about by agents who should be concentrating on their jobs.

I’ll admit to not realizing what a dolt this guy was until he became speaker. Wow, his lack of value is breath-taking.

I was wondering about that also. Sounds like a pretty bad deal to me. We’re dying from a thousand cuts.

They’re only doing this to make sure there are no protests during the DNC event in Charlotte. There are going to be a lot of pissed off red-necks there in Sept. including me!

This law means someone speaking out of turn, such as the brave woman who spoke up against Red China’s brutal dictator when he had a press conference with Obama, could be charged under this law that was almost unanimously passed.

Wait a second, this is so that whores, after servicing and getting stiffed by the Secret Service, can't protest their ill use?

That’s a fair comeback. I don’t disagree with you. Okay, I still maintain he’s a dolt, but other than that... ;^)

Sort of puts the power into the hands of those who interpret our laws.

I’m not sure what this new law corrects. The Secret Service had the ability to tell folks where they could congregate long before this, and the police joined them.

Meanwhile, the drumbeat of Dictator Obama grows louder:

I tend to agree. This is about the conventions.
I can’t see it passing SCOTUS muster. But that would
keep it on the books long enough to get through both
conventions.

“...... prohibiting protesters from occupying areas near the Secret Service.”

Does this mean all whore houses or just the ones in our country?

Yeah, the conventions are going to lead to the test case that gets it thrown out.

I think the DNC made a big mistake picking a mostly black Democrat city surrounded by MILES AND MILES AND MILES of hardcore Republican areas. Baltimore might be a safe choice, Cleveland may work, but Charlotte? You have to be kidding me.

This September is gonna hurt for him, and I’m gonna take a personal day off to go up to Charlotte with Obama eating dogs and begging for European gas prices.
