What a load of steaming, stinking brown stuff! The only similarity is they both demonstrate. But the Tea Party demonstrations do not create massive garbage and excrement messes for somebody else to clean up (at a cost of millions of someone else's money). They clean up after themselves. They do not threaten violence, as one OWS demonstrator has done (see link). There IS no violence at their demonstrations (unless it's committed by outsiders) (see the news about the rapes, murders, and stabbings at OWS gatherings). They don’t “camp out” on somebody else’s property, claiming First Amendment protection for violating the rights of the owners of that property. The Tea Party people have clear demands, including smaller government, less intrusion on our lives, fewer taxes, and more freedom.
The OWS people CLAIM to want a lot of things, but they all “boil down” to one demand: a “free ride” at the expense of others. And their “targets” are all wrong: the biggest group of “top one percenters” are in Congress, and most have made that money because it is not illegal for members of Congress to “insider trade,” making their money doing what, for us, is ILLEGAL. Check out the number of congresspeople who came to Washington barely making it who are now “filthy rich.” The Clintons and other well-known political names come to mind. (The Blaze
