|Honk if someone else caused your debt|
Tea Party rallies broke no laws and did no damage to the scenes where they gather. Occupy Wall Street has stolen from local merchants, ruined washrooms, and are in the process of making a mess of the sidewalks of the cities where they are camping out.
Tea Party has a clear message--limit the size of government, reduce spending, and get rid of wasteful entitlements
Occupy Wall Street has confused messages that are incoherent at best. They want their own debts, like college loans, to be forgiven. They want to get rid of big business. Make the rich pay their "fair share" of the taxes, which, if they did, may actually pay less than they currently pay, and cause the 47% of those who pay zero taxes, to pay their fair share, if you get technical about it.
Tea Party loves America and holds our Constitution in the highest regard--so high, in fact, that they resent the way our current president has practically disregarded it. They do not believe in the Obama czars who are not being held accountable by congressional oversight, and they do not believe in policies like the Dream Act where illegal immigrants get a better fiscal deal than legal immigrants and even American-born citizens.
Occupy Wall Street has Democratic approval because the dems know these protestors are too dense to realize that the current administration has made the country's debt and fiscal crisis much worse and hope to gain more sympathy from socialist/Marxist voters. Obama refuses to condemn them and has said that the demonstrators express "the furstrations that the American people feel." He pretends they are feeling frustration due to something other than his failed policies, regulations, and insane spending. He is hoping to also fool the other Americans who actually take showers.
Tea Party had the media treat them as "crazies," "fringe," "racists," and "mobs." But now Nancy Pelosi is comparing the Occupy Wall Street mob to the Tea Party, but not in a negative way. She is trying to elevate the unwashed (literally) mob as a movement with a real message. At this time, it isn't very clear what their message is.
Occupy Wall Street has are the darlings of the media, in part, because of organizations like MoveOn.org and labor unions. George Soros is behind some of the positive publicity too.
How many of these protestors have jobs? How many sincerely want jobs? How many get government subsidies? It's significant that they can protest for so many days and not have a job to go to--the Tea Party people mostly have jobs. They didn't protest for weeks at a time because they had to go to work. They don't have the luxury of these protestors whose mommies and daddies pay their way.
These idiots believe there should be salary caps on professions. For example, doctors should only make $28 thousand per year; this is idiotic. They believe that people who have worked hard for their wealth should share it with them. They do not believe in the free market but they believe things should be free for them, like education, health care, and maybe even food.
Obama will try to use Occupy Wall Street to his advantage. As Saul Alinsky said, "Never let a good crisis go to waste." He and the Democratic party are aligning with this movement because it camoflages the reasons they are angry in the first place. This do nothing president is, if anything, crafty and sneaky. He is the most devisive president this country has ever known and he will continue to divide us because he cannot run on his record--he never did in the first place because he had no record to run on.
Something smells on Wall Street and in Washington DC.
