        probably because there are a lot of awful buskers. when i used to do it a few years ago there were always guys who could barely play taking up the best spots. and the ones that could play were pretty boring

        my friend and i weren't the classiest because we played lots of songs like mmmbop and it's raining men but we played what people liked and we played it well. we became friendly with a bunch of the subway workers and they said we were the only buskers they liked because we played songs they knew.

        it kind of sucks that you have to pander but for the most part people will get annoyed if they have to listen to someone who sucks or is boring. after that it's just a matter of time until it trickles up to people who make the laws.

          Around here they have to have a permit. Some years ago a lot of the buskers in the city were part of pickpocket groups, one played and attracted a crowd, some others stole from the crowd. All the buskers had to audition to be granted a permit. Worked out pretty well AFAIK. The cool ones are still allowed to play and all the annoying idiots are filtered out.

            I think the law/answer reads like so...

            Because not everyone can pay as well as gennation.

            Hint for online instructors...play the example in it's entirety, THEN talk about it for 5 minutes.

            The only good liberal is a...well, we're still trying to figure out the answer to that one.

                I thought the topic was busking

                If it has to do with accepting teabaggers, just swap out genns name with '...accepting teabaggers in his mouth as well as jaxn." and I think thats how that law reads.
