Busking by legitimate musicians is one thing, unfortunately most of these are nothing but bums and panhandlers with a musical instrument.

The people of St Augustine need to make sure they have recall legislation ready. When politicians start deciding what American citizens can and cannot do on the streets fascism is not far behind. Voters in St. Augustine be warned citizens trying hard to make an honest living are being forced out of existence. Trying make a street performer into criminal in city that relies on tourism is very evil.
