What has the world come to?

If you're going to protest government action, why would you get a permit from the government to do it?

Remember the sixties? I don't.

People would protest what they saw as injustice, regardless of the government's approval. They had the courage of their convictions, even if they were wrong, and were willing to go to jail to defend said convictions.

That's real protesting. This is just whining.

That said, I hope they protest in the street in front of my car. Pacifist cowards.

Pacifism is defined as the courage to let other people do violence on your behalf while you condemn them for being your savior. If you're a pacifist, do you call offer your throat to the predatory burglars, or do you call 911? Calling 911 is delegating your responsibility for yourself to the police and their guns. If you call the police for defense, you are not a pacifist, you are a coward. Do you support taxation, in any form, for any reason? Do you understand how taxes are collected? If I don't pay taxes, I go to prison. If I refuse to go to prison, the police will take me away, at gun point. If you support taxation in any form, you are not a pacifist, you are just willing to give away your rights.

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. " -George Orwell

This means you. The rough men and their actions allow you the opportunity to fly your yellow flag for the world to see. If your betters didn't support your rights, you would be beaten, raped and served for dinner by the bad men who aren't being allowed to destroy you.
