'Climate Change' protestors blocking traffic on a holiday so cars get backed up and use more gasoline & A/C expelling more fumes into the air. Brilliant, NOT! Don't mess with traffic with these gas prices, someone with 'road rage- may just run you over.

Look I'm all about peaceful protests and exercising your first amendment rights. But, not to the extent where you're now infringing upon my ability to commute and get where I need to go. Not to mention it's dangerous.

Peter wise one

arrest all of those stopping traffic and sentence them to 2.5 years each no bond no early releases no bail just throw them in prison
