Occupy wall street isn't paying rent to stay in buildings.

That's hilarious, because Occupy Cincinnati just got a building TODAY where they pay rent each month.

See what I mean. I don't see anyone who is happy with their profession in that movement. My doctor isn't in occupy and neither is my attorney. I'm not and I'm only partly happy and successful. Also, I don't see college professors who advocate students to go there actually participating themselves.

The point is that they are a legitimate group with legitimate beliefs. Are you also trying to insinuate if you are not happy with your life, you shouldn't do anything about it? Are you a masochist? If so, don't look at me. I'm not into that stuff...Tongue

I like what I do for a living and I am an occupy person. 

Also why does someone have to be at a physical location to support certain political ideologies?  I'm sure there are plenty of people who believe/support the tea party positions who have never been to a tea party event. 

As for you paying the bill of Occupy Cincinnati, you still haven't backed up your assertion.

They'll play loud music, have an orgy, smoke weed, refuse to bathe, and act like they're doing something at the conventions. There will be almost as many arrests as were made at the Obama inaguration. You don't see that happening at tea party rallies.

That's because the Tea Party supports the establishment, the establishment sees no threat to the current power structure from the Tea Party.

Right it's not what they do, it's how it's perceived by authorities. Those tea partiers are such dirtbags but they'll always get a pass because they support the establishment. Tell Obama they support the establishment.

The President knows the Tea Party supports the establishment.  It is the same old conservative GOP talking points that have been used decade after decade after decade.

Tea Party supports the establishment wholeheartedly and is no threat to the current power structure.

Roll Eyes Just because so and so can't get laid doesn't mean they can brandish loaded guns at town hall meetings and stomp on the heads of liberal activists.

Fun fact: there were ZERO arrests at Obama's inauguration:

Another fun fact: The Tea Party broke the law again and again but just never got arrested, because they have clout. I am a witness to this fact.

No they have not. It's the Occupiers who regularly broke laws and caused all sorts of property damage wherever they protest. To think the Tea Party supports the establishment is ludicrous. We want the government to get its act together, to cut the intervention in the economy, to address the grievances we have with,  and hopefully, abolish obamacare . Why is the Occupy Movement getting carte blanche regarding financial disclosures and the Tea Parties being unjustly hounded by the IRS without any Cassius Belli? Simple. Occupies financial backers are deeply entrenched in the administration. The Tea Party groups are truly grassroots often bankrolled by everyday citizens. That's what Obama and co are afraid of. The Establishment in BOTH PARTIES don't feel they should be held to account by the people. IIRC, Obama came in on a wave of wanting more transparency and we've gotten even less.

Koch Brothers, Fox News, Glenn Beck, Dick Armey

There is little about the tea party that is grassroots.  The tea party serves to support the establishment.  They are conservative, they vote for conservatives, they vote for the same conservatives who have been in power for years.  Sometimes they overshoot in a few places in the country, Sharon Angle for example.  However they are nothing more than the GOP base by a different name

lolwut?

Also, um...last time I checked...someone got raped at an Occupy protest, and a murder occurred at one too!

Also...um... an 80+ year old got pushed down the stairs at another protest.

And most recently, feces were thrown.

So...please, don't bash the Tea Party, when your side continues to prove that Liberalism is a joke.

The 'Tea Party' isn't a real group, they're the same theocratic fiscal and social conservative Republicans we all know being astroturfed as a new legitimate grassroots movement by the plutocrats and their corporate-owned media.
