Didn't realize they snuck this one in. You could get 10 years and a felony for protesting. wow

Botton line is if Obama is around, secret service is around, and you better not protest him.
Didn't realize they snuck it in 40 years ago? This is a small tweak, essentially closing the "ignorance is not an excuse" loophole. It also passed Congress with only 3 dissenters. Love how it's framed as something huge move by Obama.

Did you even read your own links?

For the record, I don't like the law, but to pretend/imply its either a.) new or b.) Obama's doing is just plain dishonest.
