And city of San Francisco.
When these administrators decided to do to the protesters at -- Bart.
Protest the same thing that Hosni Mubarak -- to protesters and top -- square in Cairo.
Back in the wintertime.
Well we see this -- an incredible.
Dangerous precedent and we always see that we lose our liberties during time of crises and assistance of another instance of it.
So artist claiming this is an emergency and they need extraordinary limited powers to do it that.
But there are already talking about when millions that He can and when the emergency is over it's suddenly they have -- -- mutual that they can roll out whenever they want him.

All right before I let you go what they did was to turn down their cell -- so that nobody could use there their blackberries or iphones even people.
That I had nothing to do with this protest and somehow they're trying to persuade us that the Supreme Court would authorize this marriage heroic -- yeah.

It happens over and over somehow I don't it I don't think that this will lasted San Francisco thanks very much for joining us for the food and drug and that is.
