Hey, hey, ho, ho, ... what rhymes with "GAAAA?" We don't know

New York City police in riot gear swept into a Lower Manhattan park early today to remove Occupy Wall Street demonstrators who had been camping there for more than eight weeks to protest income inequality.

The action followed similar moves that shut camps in Oakland, California, and Portland, Oregon. New York police and the park’s owners told protesters at 1 a.m. local time to remove items such as tents and sleeping bags, after which city workers cleared remaining belongings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

Yes, but "OOPS!"

From a different story:

Hours later, the National Lawyers Guild obtained a court order allowing Occupy Wall Street protesters to return with tents to the park. The guild said the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on Occupy Wall Street protesters. More here:

Is it just me or does it feel like "the people of America against the lawyers and judges" in this country anymore?  I mean, these jackasses took over a public space, harassed bystanders and passersby, and caused small businesses adjacent to their "encampments" to lose business ... for MONTHS!  Who is going to pay the small businesses back their rent money and lost profits?  Where is the judge that is going to rule that OWS has to pay them back?  I'll tell you where ... nowhere.

We have simply GOT to do something about the runaway judicial branch in America.  I thought there were three co-equal branches of government ... not a ruling elite in black robes.  I'm a big fan of Herman Cain but something tells me Newt Gingrich has addressed this problem and has a solution.  I'm too lazy to check it out right now but feel free to check it out for yourself.

Oh the heck with it, I couldn't stand it so I quickly found something.  This speech was a few years ago. The video should start at the 5:19 mark and the first minute or two after that should tell you all you need to know about Newt's position on the judiciary. I don't know if he has something in his current "presidential platform."
